Clearly the person with a job has a useful skill...unless he's working for the government, in which case he shouldn't be allowed to vote unless he's in the military.
If someone chooses to forego income and take the time to earn a higher degree, they should spend their time studying, not playing politics. I mean, did you see all those stupid college kids that supported Obama? What the heck are they doing in school if they're that ignorant?
If you are in the 35% bracket, and spend $100 dollars on a tax deductible item you don't need, you save $35, but the $65 is still gone.
Better to pay the $35 in taxes and save the $65 for when business is slow.
I watched a relative (by marriage) run his business into the ground with that attitude. He spent money on software he didn't need, a new computer every year, and any other new gadget that came on the market. He had to have a new vehicle on hand to "look successful". He deducted everything to save on taxes, but spent so much money that he went under the minute that business slowed down for him.
He filed bankruptcy after using credit cards to meet payroll of his small staff, neglected to pay taxes and fica on his employees, etc. The credit card companies took the big hit....about $300K....

Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
I've NEVER been stupid enough to vote for a Democrat. Most of your generation can't say that.
The problems MY generation caused? No. The socialism destroying this country got it's biggest pushes by our grandparents in the Depression and into the Sixties.
MY generation mostly embraced capitalism. As everyone knows, capitalism is the only possible philosophy a free society can have.
So, since your generation is foolish enough to reject freedom and embrace socialism, your generation is going to lead the charge over the cliff your great grandparents led you to and which my generation tried to back away from.
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
****, your right. Firefighters, teachers, doctors and nurses at state hospitals clearly don't have any useful skills.Clearly the person with a job has a useful skill...unless he's working for the government, in which case he shouldn't be allowed to vote unless he's in the military.
Then people with jobs should focus on their careers instead of voting. I mean its damn near impossible to have interests beyond school or work.If someone chooses to forego income and take the time to earn a higher degree, they should spend their time studying, not playing politics.
Oh , I get it. You want to disenfranchise certain groups because they didn't vote the same as you do. Democracy isn't supposed to be about only your interests.I mean, did you see all those stupid college kids that supported Obama? What the heck are they doing in school if they're that ignorant?

I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Democracy works because every adult is inherently given the right to vote. Only by being convicted of criminal actions can it be taken away. You want to change that, you might well put on lederhosen and start blowing hitler. If we barred idiots from voting, it wouldn't be democracy because we would going against the majority. Disagreeing with someone is cause to argue against them using our nifty free speech laws, not persecute them using the government.
The difference between you and an open window is that the open window is slightly more difficult to see through.
Oh noes!!! Guess we'll have to find someone else to write Akhbar's posts.
