    Its obvious Fox News and its imitators, CNN, NewsMAx and talk radio are academic frauds, merely parroting the party line of the ultra rich whom, I doubt, are members of this forum.

    What are you fighting for? Against your own standard of living? Against unions? For Hannity to become richer? Who?

    true but the very wealthiest americans tend to support the dems

    and of course most of the hollywood billionaires are dems as well

    why?

    LOL - yes, it's extremely dishonest. (And the part about the rest of us getting $100 is complete nonsense.)

    It's also true that if you make more than $1 million dollars, almost $800,000 of that goes to taxes (closer to $900,000 if Catawba had his way).

    Congrads on getting your house paid off, mine got paid off in 2006...... but that has nothing to do with the price of eggs either.

    I'm sure there are many people making under $100,000 a year that are very happy to have that deduction. I'm also sure that there were people making a million a year that had their homes paid for as well and never got to use that deduction.

    Quite frankly. .. a post like that has no logical sense behind it.

    You may want to read this Bill Gates' interview to see where he stands on teachers and their unions: Gates and Weingarten: Fixing Our Nation's Schools - Newsweek

    He isn't standing with the Dems there, that's for sure.
