    [QUOTE=USA-1;1058541020]And the rest of us didn't pay into those entitlements? What a hypocrite.
    It always amazes me how some complain about entitlements yet when it comes time for them to collect they feel like they are entitled.

    Eat my heart out? I am semi retired, have saved up enough to live comfortably without SS which I do not plan on signing up for until I actually need it. Unlike you I did not leech off the government my entire life. Being a supply clerk in the Navy is not all that dangerous or heroic. I worked in the private sector for everything I have.[/QUOTE]

    So you never defended you country and begrudge the guys who worked that ass off and did.........Shame on you for begrudging the small compebsation they receive every month.....Just remember they are the ones that fought and died to give you the right to run your mouth like this......

    I to planned my retirement thinking I would never receive SS...I could live without it and would be willing to give it up if the government did away with the program.........I did not even apply for it until I was 70.......

    No matter what you say in the future I will never forget what you said about our brave service people that protect your ass leech off the government when they receive a pension............that is about as low as you can get........

    I don't hear you complain about lazy scum bags using the government by drawing welfare and food stamps for years.......I have a friend who delivers mail and he says he has delivered a welfare check to the dame house for 25 years and the only thing that has changed is the name on the envelope...........

    They had tough choices to make and they made them. Right or wrong. Had they done nothing and we had a total economic collapse would you still be whining? I would say yes.
    You did not support the bail outs but you like it now.........Seems to me you are trying to have it both ways.............

    I say let the companies sink or swim.......that is what capitalism is all about......I am consisent.......you are not.............

    I did not support it or do I like it. I do not know if it was the right thing to do or not. Neither do you. Time will tell.

    The top 1% already pay far too much

    hiking taxes on them is actually going to hurt the lower classes. rich people are generally rather resourceful and there are plenty of countries who like their investments. One of my best friends is the son of a man who just sold a company that had been in his family for 120 years for about 26 million. The guy promptly moved to the Turks and Cacos Islands. The death confiscation tax and the income taxes the libs love aren't going to get much of that wealth

    If rich folks pay less taxes that means poorer folks have to pay more. Do you understand that? I just want my taxes cut and if that means rich people paying more, then so be it. If you want to pay more taxes so wealthy people don't have to, feel free to send the government extra money.
    The Wall St. bailouts kind of proves how Government looks out for the wealthy. The $180 billion bailout of AIG and bank bailouts allowed the rich to keep getting bonuses thanks to the taxpayer.
    This is the mentality the dem leaders play to

    they tell people like you that all the stuff you want will be paid for "by the rich" as long as you vote for dems

    that is why we need a flat tax or better yet a consumption tax--so congressional panderers cannot get elected by promising you the wealth of other people

    if you vote for government spending than you should have to face tax hikes, not just the top 1% who already pay far far more than their fair share

    That just means you can be consistently wrong

    Once you start generalizing every situation, and when you start saying overbroad statements, you're automatically wrong.

    Of course not, only someone very retarded would cut taxes when deficits are record high, or even keep old idiotic and populist tax cuts.

    But then again, its democracy, its the only way, to follow the downward spiral.. So yes, they will stay in place. So will the enourmous doubling of military expenditures, and so will all other things. On top of that, taxes will probably be cut again, for re-election purposes.

    Democracy is wonderful, isnt it?


    But SHOULD they stay in place? NO Fraking way... And defense spendings needs to be cut as well, to pre-fascist levels.
