    See though, that would have fed the opposition meme also, would it not? I mean, you're protesting because there are no jobs, and someone is setting up a table where they are offering jobs, and you either ignore it, or go up to it and give a bunch of reasons why you won't take them...So, how again is this supposed to be a trap? They could take a job.

    I'm not going to analyze the video like it's the Kennedy shooting. The Congressman recoiled from the guy and wiped his face.
    I saw the video too, to me it looked like what was being said about the so called spitting incident was far from the intent of the yelling protester. Now I am not him, nor am I in his heart, but it is possible that media friendly to the liberal causes could have spun this no?

    I'm sure there are hardcore Socialists in the group. Just like hardcore Socialists supported labor when they fought for Child Labor laws. Just like Libertarians supported some of the measures of the Tea Party but the Tea Party is extremely conservative on social issues.
    Personally, I wish that the Tea Party would stick to fiscal sanity, and drop the social issue stuff. I think they have more credibility when they do.

    Sure, if you lower healthcare costs for corporations it might create jobs. The administration didn't say that. Wasn't it Pelosi or Dean?
    Well, Pelosi repeated that lie, but no Obama was the man saying it....

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Obama says passage of his health care proposals would create new jobs by making small business start-ups more affordable.

    In his weekly radio and Internet video address Saturday, the president linked one of his biggest challenges — a worse-than-expected loss of jobs — with a top priority: passage of far-reaching changes to the nation's health care system.

    Obama links job growth to health care proposal - USATODAY.com
    My question...what would a Democratic "compromise" look like? For example debt. Please point out where Republicans are willing to give in any shape or form.
    Well, so far every time republicans have agreed to compromise tax increases coupled with spending cuts promised by demo's, the tax increases are instant, and the spending never materializes. But to point to a specific would be when Bohner was dealing directly with Obama on the debt ceiling, according to reports, they had a deal with both some cuts, with some tax increases, and Obama blew it up the next day saying he needed some $800 billion more in taxes.

    I say that if we need to do both, we need to see the cuts in spending first, then we can talk about taxes.

    So...during the time period that you grew up, the time period your family raised you was during the "Welfare state" but apparently some switch flipped as of 2008 to create this large swath of Americans that don't wanna work?
    No, you have it wrong. It has been a progression. I don't think I said anything about some magic turn of events where people all of the sudden people don't want to work.

    There is a conscious effort to make people more and more dependent on government to take care of their needs, whether it be in the form of welfare, or in the form of this so called 'social justice'....

    Way too many bad folks to consider them "few" when they span from Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Oakland, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, etc, etc.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I thought it was clear. We make the 47% who do not pay federal income taxes pay their fair share.

    I am part of the 53% who pay all of the taxes. Now I am not in the top 1%. But I am in the top 5% (maybe 6% as the numbers change from time to time). I pay about half of everything I earn when all taxes are considered. I pay about a third to the federal government. That turns out to be a large number. Some of you would probably be happy to have what I pay as your annual salary.
