TAX THE RICH!!!


The rich have made it abundantly clear they've no interest in helping this country rebuild it's middle-class or pay down it's national debt.They want the poorest members of society to do that by giving up essentials like bread,milk and life saving medicine.

Fine.

However,much to the chagrin of very wealthy people and their sycophanatic Republican regular folk(who continually vote against their own economic interest IE;being on social security and voting for a party intent on dismanlting social security)when you park your money in a dummy Corporation on the Cayman Islands then you're A)going to be investigated or B)going to release a larger portion of your tax returns,not just the ones you were embarrased into releasing which forced you to place said dummy corporation in wifes name or c)cast a shawdow of doubt on your own legitimacy and therefore the legitimacy of your vision for this country.


Let me be very clear when I say this.......Americans like to know what,if anything, a Presidential candidate is hiding.It's painful and uncomfortable,or as the GOP has recently articulated,"disgusting and mean"...but there it is.

"America's jobless rate is still too high", but President Obama is doing the best he can. He invented the probably-coal-powered Volt. He's trying to raise taxes on "millionaires and billionaires" making $250,000 or more. What more can a man do?

Hmm, "political campaign" sounds like weasel words. What other kind of campaign might he have in mind?

Jim Ryan

Let's see. He's "this dude who used to hang out and get baked" and he never got anywhere in life.... Give him a second term as president after he fell on his face in the first while the country teeters at the brink? Sounds like a good idea. Sure beat hiring an accomplished turnaround artist.

National Journal's Josh Krashaar agrees with Jay Cost (and GMax!) that the Bain attacks aren't working and that Obama is stuck below 50%:

http://decoded.nationaljournal.com/2012/07/despite-bain-attacks-obama-sti.php

For all the attention paid to the effectiveness of President Obama’s Bain-themed attacks, it’s remarkable how Obama has been stuck right around 47 percent for a very long time. As the Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza documented, the president’s team has handily outspent Romney and his allied super PACs, pouring in $91 million into eight swing states in an early spending barrage intended to make Romney seem an unacceptable challenger. But for all that effort, the numbers haven’t moved much at all: The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll out today shows the race deadlocked at 47 percent. Yesterday’s USA Today/Gallup swing state poll showed Obama statistically tied with Romney, the exact same result the survey showed one month ago.

Those dastardly, evil Repubs - don't they know that only the Dems can do that? It's in their contract! Is Obama behind in the fund-raising department because Dems are parking their money in Cayman Island dummy accounts?

"The rich have made it abundantly clear they've no interest in helping this country rebuild it's middle-class or pay down it's national debt."

Other than pay a larger share of the total tax burden than the rich of any other country in the OECD, what would you like them to do? And why do you think anyone on earth would be interested in helping you? You're an ungrateful whiner, and I would go out of my way to make your life worse.

Conn Carroll:

"So how is Obama doing now, at the height of his incumbency advantage? At best, he’s treading water. A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows Obama tied with Romney among registered voters at 47 percent. But Obama is far weaker than that top line number suggests.

"Romney is actually beating Obama among independents by 14 points, 53-39 percent. The only thing keeping Obama close to Romney is the poll’s heavily pro-Democrat sample. In 2008, a Democratic landslide election, Democrats enjoyed just a 7 point turn out advantage (39 percent of the electorate to 32 percent). But in this poll, Democrats enjoy a 9 point advantage (36 percent to 27 percent). In both 2004 and 2010, turnout between the parties was even."

Jim Ryan

It's comforting to know that if the majority of the electorate votes for Zero, then at least the majority of the electorate will deserve the collapse of the country. It's a pity about the innocents (children, those who tried to vote for spending cuts, and so forth) but at least there will be some modicum of justice in the collapse.

centralcal

The "rich" in the Obama White House (per Free Beacon):

Jarrett’s net worth is between $3.3 million and $13 million. Lu is worth between $2.3 million and $5.2 million. Plouffe is worth as much as $3.6 million, Carney as much as $3.2 million, and Pfeiffer as much as $2.1 million.
Porchlight

But in this poll, Democrats enjoy a 9 point advantage (36 percent to 27 percent). In both 2004 and 2010, turnout between the parties was even."

Anyone who says Dems will have a 9 point turnout advantage in November is stupid or lying. The ABC/WaPo poll has always been suspect but this tops anything I've seen recently.

He's tanking and they're desperate.

Danube of Thought

She just won't stop giving:

"Disclosure forms reveal that Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a member of Congress from Florida, previously held funds with investments in Swiss banks, foreign drug companies, and the state bank of India. This revelation comes mere days after the Democratic chair attacked presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for holding money in Swiss bank accounts in the past."

Why does Obama want more money to spend. What is he spending it on, and can't he just put it on SATCHMO and SOMALIA'S tab??
Obama was going to cut the deficit in half. WHAT HAPPENED??

Still waiting for those tax records for the last ten years.

If the President of the United states can produce his birth certificate to placate one of the dumbest conspiracy groups in America(the GOP),then surely Swiss Mitt can produce the same number of tax returns that his father did.

Jesus,why is this guy so secretive?

What's he hiding?

He's running to be President of the United states...he's got his money parked in dummy corporations all over the Caymen Islands ...he's got secret swiss bank accounts and other secret bank accounts(and yes they are "secret" because we had to pry this information from him)......and to top it all off he doesn't want people looking at his tax returns prior to two years ago.

Even daddy Romney acknowledged that anyone anticipating a Presidential bid could premptively fix their tax returns for the last few years to hide the true nature of their financhial dealings.Which is why he released 10 years worth.

Why won't his son?

What is Mitt Romney hiding besides Dummy corporations in the Cayman and Swiss bank accounts?????

Why does Obama want more money to spend.

I think it was Pops who wondered why Obama doesn't just borrow millions & billions & trillions for his campaign. That's the game plan for America...so he should follow his own advice. Borrow your way to victory, Barack!

Me? I am still waiting for all the sealed transcripts, college records, selective service registration records, passport applications and usage, financial applications for aid to college, who the co-signers were, etc.

There is no obligation on the part of any candidate to release IRS returns. There is not one scintilla or evidence or even smoke to believe that any transaction or banking relationship Romney has is illegal, immoral or unethical. You can smear all you want but you have nothing except slander, libel and bullshit.

[Has Obama stopped leaking National Security secrets? Has he stopped beating Michelle? Has he stopped molesting his kids? Has Obama renounced his homosexuality and drug usage? Has Obama stopped giving Vlad Putin his unsworn loyalty? Has Obama told King Saud that he has to be more careful where and when he kneels toward Mecca everyday because too many people are catching on?]

NK

Today really is a good day-- first Gallup shows NOBODY trusts the Legacy Media, so they don't swing votes to the Dems like they used to. Now, the Dems attack Romney the investor, putting money away around the world, just like Debbie Wasserman or union pension funds. HOW DARE HE. He's Rich?-- not a problem, thanks to the OWS schmucks last year, voters aren't into class warfare. DD-- just keep using that welfare cash card to buy butts and porn-- for now. After the election, we'll tighten up those welfare rules.

"Excuses" -- as my High School football coach said about exceuses: 'They are like ...holes, eveybody's got one.'

Danube of Thought

Reality:

"Wealthy Americans earn about 50 percent of all income but pay nearly 70 percent of the federal tax burden, according to the latest analysis Tuesday by the Congressional Budget Office — though the agency said the very richest have seen their share of taxes fall the past few years.

"CBO looked at 2007 through 2009 — the latest years data are available, but enough to include the early effects of the last recession — and found the bottom 20 percent of American earners paid just three-tenths of a percent of the total federal tax burden, while the richest 20 percent paid 67.9 percent of taxes.

"The top 1 percent, whom President Obama has made a target during the presidential campaign, earned 13.4 percent of all pre-tax income but paid 22.3 percent of taxes in 2009, CBO said. When tax burden is figured in, the top 1 percent took in only 11.5 percent of income."

Sorry, DuDa--we're not going to pay any more. You Eurotrash will have to learn to live with that.

And with President Romney.

Mel, I just splurged and ordered emergency survival kits for us to keep in our cars. Just saying.

Carol Herman

The answer is: Nigel Farage.

Gosh, the man stole my heart. He's gone viral with clips from the European Parliament. Where he's been targeting (for more than a decade), the LOSS OF SOVEREIGNTY TO THE BRITISH PEOPLE. And, others.

While he's pointed out that over in England ALL the major parties contain the same type of politicians. Who HATE THE PEOPLE! And, who are only happy tossing away sovereignty for a chance to "party" on the EU's dime.

We don't have such a politician in America! So it set me to wonder.

I also live in a very small town. Where the right wing bullies are the politicians. And, they certainly don't mind trampling freedoms. Instead? They share a small pie among themselves. And, they terrorize small businesses. And, anyone else who submits plans to upgrade their residential properties.

What has this got to do with Romney?

Well, Romney's not out to give me your freedom. The Romney's, the Bush's, and the Rockefeller's just want to become "monarchs." "The Little People aren't on their agenda."

If Romney loses in November?

Well, then, I expect Karl Rove comes out ... and some new plan to hold primaries will emerge for 2016. And, Jeb Bush will be forced down the throats of any group that so far, instead, is sold on Jesus. And, reducing the availability of contraception.

At least I now think I know why Romney can't get a leg up. Obama? He won against McCain. It's as if the powers that be within the republican party have no idea how to pick someone personable.

Imagine a party that learned nothing from picking the loser, McCain.

And, NOTHING from all the years they stuck Reagan out in the cold. (Starting in 1964, when Goldwater thought Reagan a lightweight. And, to gain stature Reagan, in California, ran against the democratic family machine of the Brown's.

Moonbeam's a Brown. Remember the lady from eBay who ran against him? She proved you couldn't buy California.

Reagan, however, proved you could win it. If you kept a twinkle in your eye. (Yeah. He was once a democrat. But he couldn't get a leg up on their platform. The rest, as they say, is "history.")

Obama? As soon as he reached the senate the deal makers (Ted Kennedy and John Kerry) ... treated him the way you treat a candidate who can reach the gold.

The 'Passport applications and usage scandal' that ripped the country apart,where brother fought against brother over correct passport applications and usage policy?

Things Obama can do with a win, in November:

Change the supreme court, and replace a few with liberal judges. (Meaning? Anyone in law school. Or looking at the politics of becoming sitting judges ... write opinions along liberal lines.)

Cut the budgets of the State Department, the military, and the CIA. Maybe, even cut what we provide to NATO and the UN? The zombie Euro (which is a Ponzi scheme to Nigel Farage) ... will have europe on the ropes for a long time. Violence is going to swell.

Nigel Farage has gone on record to point out how violence rises among the masses of people who lose rights they took for granted.

The bigger question is why does Obama want the job? After awhile it has to be very tiring living in a fish bowl.

About all you need to know about russia is they have no middle class. NO management skills! And, the nation lives on cheap vodka and bread.

50/50

Anyone who has studied American history has become familiar with our two party system.

Now, if you take FDR, in all his 4 contests, he won by LANDSLIDES!

Yes, we were in the DEEP DEPRESSION.

When FDR won out over Hoover, in 1932, I don't think Hoover achieved even 50 Electoral College votes.

In 1936, when the GOP ran with Alf Landon, FDR won by a wider margin: Alf Landon maybe got 7 electoral college votes.

When McGovern lost to Nixon, in 1972, McGovern won only his own state. He was asked about this loss. And, he said "I can't cry (in public). But it hurts too much to laugh."

Yeah. Sometimes the democrats lose.

Back in 1956, (and I remember this story) ... a woman was thrilled to shake Adlai Stevenson's hand. As she was doing so, she gushed: "Every bright person is America is going to be voting for you." To which Stevenson replied: "Alas, then I'll lose."

What SHOULD HAVE the republicans done for 2012? Iowans should have been pummeled! There should have been a republican voice that developed that would have been akin to Nigel Farage!

"What do you mean you want to stuff your religion down other people's throats?" What do you mean you want to deny women access to safe abortions?"

The 1950's won't come back!

And, both major parties see no need in improving on what they're doing ... even though we're getting elections, now, that take place at the edge of the cliff!

The benefit of reporting Obama "lags."

Because then people will think this is "not in the bag." And, you up the margin of people willing to vote.

Sure. If people get enthusiastic about a candidate, they're more than likely to vote.

But Obama? His advantage is to make the race look more exciting than it is.

And, to do that people have to think "it's so close he can lose."

Now, on election night, there's gonna be a lot of focus on watching results. Which start to occur on the East Coast. And, over a 3 hour period, travels West.

Florida and Pennsylvania will be the first two states up to the announcement plate.

Yes. There's a reason the media will play the night "as tight." BECAUSE IT HELPS BRING IN MORE AD MONEY!

Congress controls federal spending

That's true. A President's opportunity for control over the government's fiscal condition comes on the revenue side, since he can unilaterally set tax rates, as in

tax cuts enacted by former President George W. Bush.

Also,
Because Congress controls federal spending, presidents must work with lawmakers on cutting the federal deficit. That puts much of what can be done about deficits beyond the sole control of any president. A great deal depends on which party controls the House and Senate,
yet
The emergency financial bailout begun by Bush a few months before he left office added to the red ink.

They understand that a pawn taking a Queen is an excellent move EVEN if the pawn comes takes fire.In fact anything that supplies fuel to this fire and keeps it going for as long as possible is a positive.As long as the conversation stays on Romney's swiss bank account and foreign dummy corporations it undermines his legitimacy........4 months before an election.

What's so brilliant about Romney is that he's a walking talking poster child of the very financhial system that betrayed so many people over the last 5 years.
