    It's hilarious how you think certain posts simply do not exist.

    More nonsense.

    we get the fact that you are upset that others are more industrious and make more money than you do and you crave government confiscation of more wealth in order to salve the hurt

    we also get the fact that you will try to justify more government confiscation of wealth with grandiose claims that jacking up taxes on the most productive 1-2% of the population is for the "greater good"

    If that house of cards collapses, the poor aren't just going to sit there and peacefully starve to death. They're going to come get what they need to survive.

    If it's between paying a bit more in taxes and having every city in the US operating like a post-Katrina New Orleans, I know which one I'm choosing.
    Our "poor" won't starve, but they might have to give up cell phones, ipods, cable TV, internet, beer and wine, smokes, weekly trips to the hair salons, etc.

    Obama has proven what we knew all along--he was incompetent with no real experience

    anyone is better than that turd because with someone else there is at least a chance of something other than complete destruction of the american economy.

    the main reason to make the poor lose income (no matter how derived) when government spending increases is to demonstrate to them that government spending has to be paid for by citizens-not BS that only the rich have to pay more and more for increased government spending

    Here is the problem we have today and one that Obama supporters ignore

    Obama's handlers understand what people want to hear and Obama is able to express that with a straight face. People WANT to believe and he gives them their wants in words. They are incapable of distinguishing the difference between what he says he will do and what his entire history tells them exactly what he will do.

    It has been reported that 53% of the people in this country actually pay Federal Income Taxes. Is it not surprising that the other 47% have no problem raising taxes on the income generaters in this country?

    It would be interesting if we adding in state and local taxes which have grown progressive over the last few years. My guess is that owuld take the total to over 50%. Oh, and let's not forget property taxes.
