    If they're both not relevant, then saying one is worse than the other isn't logical...

    BINGO! Even when I called it you couldn't help yourself, could you? And with a threat to boot! Now, go google "presidential scholars rate Obama 15th" (go to google.com and in the box type in what I just told you to type in - cons have to stop expecting others to do their work - you may be mad at me now, but you'll thank me later) ... but, like you, I'm curious where he'll be after his second term ... personally, I'd drop him a notch or two, and remember, most of our presidents have not been very good, so 15 is relative anyway ...

    meanwhile I'll try to find another way of telling you guys that you will not be taken seriously posting the I hate Obama stuff you post, instead of calling you clowns. Sorry if I hurt your feelings.

    Two people can be skinny, but one can be skinnier ... you and I can be intelligent, but you could be more intelligent ... no, that's not a good example - it has to be believable ... stick with the first example ...

    Greetings, apdst.

    d: This will hurt small businesses! I remember when credit card interest, car loans and other loans were allowed to be deducted on your personal tax filing every April. I don't recall why the IRS stopped allowing this, but it must have a bonanza for the credit card companies since they soon raised their rates. There were many articles in magazines advising people to pay their credit card charges in total every month to avoid paying the higher interest rates. This was all well and good advice, unless you had recently bought high ticket items during a home renovation! The same lack of deductions is not good news for small businesses, if they are currently using credit cards to pay their bills, IMO.

    When you make each irrelevant, there is nowhere else to go. BTW, the "rock" doesn't suit you very well...

    The dis-allowance of CC interest deduction along with many other deductions was a part of Reagan's tax reform.

    A grand bargain? For whom? The corporations? How 'bout we start by eliminating deductions and exemptions for the 66% of American corporations and 68% of foreign corporations which have no tax liability under the existing code.
