    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner (paraphrasing James Bovard).

    He should know this.

    Hey cool, I live west of Atlanta. Hello to Macon.
    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.

    Not yet, and I do not consider a blog a source.

    Re: Obama's Attempted Tax Hikes Thus Far

    I like the following things that this guy says Obama is going to do:

    "-Raise the top income tax rates from their current 33 percent and 35 percent rates to 36 percent and 39.6 percent in 2011."

    "-Raise cigarette tax by 62 cents a pack."

    "-Raise taxes on beer, wine, liquor, and soda."




    "-Tax AIG employee bonuses."
    I wish the could be done but it's illegal so I wouldn't support it.

    Yes Obama broke his promise. He said he wouldn't tax people making under 250,000 a year anymore than before. He raised the cigarette tax, and a very large percentage of cigarette users are in the lower income brackets.

    He is in a "Read my lips, no new taxes" moment.

    "-Raise the top income tax rates from their current 33 percent and 35 percent rates to 36 percent and 39.6 percent in 2011."

    "-Raise cigarette tax by 62 cents a pack."

    "-Raise taxes on beer, wine, liquor, and soda."

    I hope you don't get offended if I call that a fail.

    The last statement went the last quote. The last statement doesn't apply to all the quotes just the AIG bonuses. Sorry for the confusion.
