Do you approve of President Obama's job performance? (Jan. 2013)
So let me understand. A rich guy who hides his money in offshore accounts, admits that he loves to fire people, wants to cut taxes for his rich friends is better then a great man that deeply cares about the injustices of America and loves the people? Looks like you're the idiot. Obama 2016!
Captain, I will be happy to answer your question. The rich 1% should pay at least 75% in federal income taxes. The next bracket, the 2nd % should be paying 65%. The minimum the top 10% should pay should be 55%. There's your answer. Does that mean I don't have to shut up now?
Yeah cuz if he were still in office he'd be able to balance things out right?He's the genius that put us in this mess. When we could of cut our losses and rebuilt and came back a stronger nation then hit them where it hurts. Instead he lead us right into a broke ass country.
Typical libtard won't quantify his position! No surprise. CALI : WHAT IS THE PERCENTAGE OF THE ANNUAL EARNINGS THE SO CALLED RICH SHOULD PAY TO THE GOVERNMENT IN TAXES? It is not dependent on how much you make. ANSWER THE QUESTION OR SHUT THE H3LL UP.
George Bush was a genius compared to this empty suit called Obama.
Worst president in history? Does no one remember who George bush is anymore?
Think, have you looked at the salaries of the "charities" executives? Looks like they came right from Wall Street. Most of the money goes to pay their outrageous salaries. How much should you pay in income tax depends on how much you make. Are you one of the 1%ers? Or the 50% screwed by the 1%?
I sure wish we didn't have to vote NO yet again. Our country deserves so much better than this failure of a president!
Hahah, good one.
Cali ... You can't believe that "charities are an extension to corporate greed". This is simply the most uninformed nonsense I've ever heard -- even on SoH! Come on, I can't imagine even Pdrome saying such an idiotic thing. Where's your proof that Red Cross is worse than the mindless government?
Can't wait to vote NO in February!!
I'm so glad that I pushed the "ignore" button on Pali. Now all I see is "This user is currently being ignored" instead of his complete stupidity. Plug away Pali and say whatever... It's all for naught.
Welfare recipients should be subject to mandatory drug testing. If they fail, they lose their benefits PERIOD. Why should I be forced to pay for a druggie or a lazy jerk who does not want to work? Why should I? Please explain.
What percentage of my income constitutes a "fair share" Cali?
It's the new America, hey we might not have to worry about illegals crossing our border, because they are running back where they came from. Look at Detroit. It's pretty much a 3rd world city now.
I don't debate with unapologetic racist/prejudiced assholes. That's just a type of person that's not worth debating or wasting ANY amount of time on whatsoever. Consider this me bowing out of this and all further conversations.
And there we have it folks ... the true colors of the Obama faithful. Pdrome can't debate like an adult because his/her/it's positions are so weak, so all that's left is smear.
I'll just chalk it up to you being an internet idiot. You make me sad. And sick.
You're a worthless prejudiced prick. An Internet coward. You give the republicans and mainstream right wing a bad rap. You're an Alex Jones fool and a worthless person to waste time on. Die off already. Cancer
Pdrome ... you a Christian? Hmmm ...
Pdrome ... coming from you, the ultimate ignorant troll, I'll count myself just fine. Your fake outrage has more than worn old. Your ignorant and racist comments on hurt yourself and your position.
Wow Think.... You are truly hopelessly ignorant. You're a bigot and shame to the Republican Party and to America in general.
Or maybe a troll. Or all of the above.
"Absentee father" is a kind way of saying that the black man abandoned his white "wife" and half white son.
To be clear, the grandmother that raised our 44th white president was also white.
The facts complicate the leftists phony reality, but the facts don't change. Let the claims of racism fly!
Obama just came out and said he shoots skeet regularly. When he heard that Bush told Cheney to take him hunting!
There's a difference between your own personal religious beliefs and what you desire for the nation. The two don't necessarily need to overlap. I'm a Christian and I don't think ANY party's political platform should include any singular religious belief. Sorry to burst that bubble
MLK was a devout Christian... I don't see how that at all ties into him being "conservative" or at all similar to your twisted ideology. Being devout doesn't make you any less accepting. MLK accepted people of ALL faiths. Taking God out of politics probably wouldn't offend him bc he was a bigger man
Obama is an idiot and the people who voted for him are idiots too.
So a vocal part of the party wanted God out of the platform.... What's your point? Wanna talk about the minority in the Republican Party that is racist? Lol go home Think
Lets see ... which party voted to remove the word GOd from their platform? Ya, wasn't there a very public and embarrassing moment where the chairman overrode the will of the delegates to reinstate the words into the Dem platform? Dr King would have found modern Dems as repugnant as the Dixiecrats!
How's socialism working out for Greece?
Hang on ... Cali has a point. MrO is "different"! He is the first president to be he'll bent on ruining the country. Others may have been puppets or simpletons, but this gut his out to ruin the country.
His ideas have no merit. He knows it, but continues. I pray we can survive the idiocy of O!
Texan ... are you suggesting that quoting from MrO or his minions would be any different? You have no point.
At least Mr Jindal's point makes economical sense, MrO and the adolescent intellectuals that surround him have no practical experience, and it shows. MrO owns the worst economic malaise!
I get O, he received massive campaign support and in exchange gave billions in TARP funds that the banks then sat on.
But What horrible banking abuse did Bush or Romney commit?
Lol - I thought that was really well-written sarcasm til I saw the poster.
You are one deluded fool. O is as slimy a Chicago pol as they come.
Is that another in the series of "Obama didn't cause the deficit" and "rich people's towers of money fell and broke everyone's homes?" Lol
SmartTexan- Scandanavia ( Norway and Sweden) each have national debts that are near 1.5 times their GDP. Per capital national debt is over $100K.
They may be productive but socialism is failing to be sustainable.
What's your point @Think? Lol
... carrying our whole nation back to those great wells of democracy which were dug deep by the founding fathers in the formulation of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
Martin Luther King Jr., "Letter from the Birmingham Jail,"April 1963
One day the South will know that when these disinherited children of God sat down at lunch counters they were in reality standing up for the best in the American dream and the most sacred values in our Judaeo-Christian heritage, and thusly, ...
Why does his color matter to anyone? The question was about the job he is doing. I would have voted for Collin Powell or Herman Cain.
It is Obama's policies that are killing our nation not his color.
Nature vs. Nurture-Obama's father was black. He was also a womanizing drunk and absentee father.
He was raised by his grandmother.
That even the Dem senate voted down 97-0. Now O and Dems can spend at the same level and claim that they did not vote for it.
Explains it all.
Sorry to burst your bubble there Med but the Prez and Dem senate own the spending for the past 4 years. O's first year spending was intentionally grandfathered in as the next year's "budget" when a budget cannot be passed. O got $787B stimulus then put forward insane budgets
He was voted in the first time despite not having any accomplishments. Heck, he did not even do his job of voting on bills that were presented. He always voted "Present".
Being Christian does NOT equal being conservatives. Many many many liberals are also devout Christians
Don't know what words of mine conceded that.
MLK was a devout Christian that I still maintain would have found today's liberals morally reprehensible.
How then did this guy get reelected? (I guess SoH isn't representative of the voting public. Too bad.)
Well then, by your own words MLK wasn't a conservative. So there you go....
I guess by "our movement" you refer to civil rights. If so, I would agree. Both movements were born out of a desire of equal opportunity for blacks and women.
Shocking as it may seem conservatives want that even today. Support equal opportunity: oppose obligation to insure equal results.
