Obama: We raised taxes, but the rich still aren’t paying their fair share And HE has the nerve to bitch about greed State officials propose mileage tax for fuel-efficient vehicles in Oregon Revenue-sucking politicians to punish gas-sippers. The irony is hilarious Uproar Over Bloated Sandy Aid Package $60 billion sounds like it includes a lot of money NOT directed a Sandy victims. Head Start, Alaska fisheries, Community Development Block Grants, the Smithsonian…? Hillary Clinton script has Hollywood buzzing I have the perfect title, “I Don’t Recall” Obama Promised Not to Use Signing Statements, but Released One Last Night One of many promises broken, but who cares? Congressmen Confirm That Boehner Will Either Resign Speakership Or Be Forced Out Not what I heard, so the plot thickens… Gore Rammed Through Current TV Deal to Avoid Tax Hikes Ya gotta love the 1% Iran to Citizens: Flee Isfahan I guess “Made in Iran” doesn’t mean what it used to Iowa Paper Publishes Radical Anti-Gun Column: If People Refused to Give Up Their Guns, ‘Prying’ Them ‘From Their Cold, Dead Hands’ Works for Me So, that’s how it’s gonna be…? Fiscal-cliff deal no recipe for a robust economy Anyone who thought it would be clearly can’t count Father’s photo of his daughter reaching out from her mother’s womb during C-section to grab doctor’s finger takes web by storm Awww… Boehner loses his temper AGAIN: Speaker YELLS at a Republican congressman from New Jersey who was asking about why the Hurricane Sandy relief bill was postponed Boehner tells GOP he’s through with one-on-one Obama talks You can’t negotiate with someone who wants you destroyed A Twist in the Benghazi Saga The hard part is getting the Obama media to care Al Jazeera Seeks a U.S. Voice Where Gore Failed Al Jazeera completes deal to buy Current TV We all know Al was looking to unload Current TV. It’s telling who Muslim TV chose to use as an audience for their… stories Time Warner Cable drops arts channel Probably couldn’t get enough advertisers for that crap Obama missing in action You reelected him. Stop your whining Obama to ´Quickly´ Go for Immigration Reform and Gun Control The “revenge” continues Harvard Targeted in U.S. Asian-American Discrimination Probe Why should they want the best and brightest? The black president demands Harvard admit minorities as smart as he was Chris Boehner tells GOP he’s through negotiating one-on-one with Obama OK, so now Johnny Boy will insist on have his team in the room and the Dems can have their teams. Then the GOP teams will discuss their plans, the Dems will not have a plan, Barry will call the press in and save a front row seat for Paul Ryan and anyone else that wants to be shredded without the opportunity to rebut except after the MSM have shut off their cameras and left the room. Wow, what a strategy! How about taking the Joe Wilson approach? Chris State officials propose mileage tax for fuel-efficient vehicles in Oregon The concept of taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel is one of the fairest taxes conceived. Of course, every little embryo changes a lot from conception to maturity, especially when the bastards writing the law get finished (which is never) tinkering with the operation of the law. In a perfect world we would support a highway system based sole upon user fees. So now comes the problem of having the Pious owners pay for the right to drive on the highways. If the alternative fee comes in too low then the hybrid and plug-ins are getting a subsidy. Can we just settle on toll road for all with your E-pass or other technology keeping track of the mileage. Mileage x weight = fee seems simple and fair. Of course, simplicity and fairness are not about to happen. Oh well, I’m still wasting my time writing about such things. http://mauser.livejournal.com Mauser Current sold out to Al Jazeera – the resulting network actually LESS anti-American than before. RockThisTown Why Intel’s proposed venture into cable television may be the long-awaited win-win for viewers. I will gladly pay for being able to choose my cable channels, rather than having them, particularly the liberal ones, forced on me. Obama: We raised taxes, but the rich still aren’t paying their fair share If you were king, and I thank my personal God you’re not, Mr. Obama, the rich would never be paying their fair share, even if taxed at 100%. State officials propose mileage tax for fuel-efficient vehicles in Oregon You taxed gasoline so much that people couldn’t afford it, and now that they’ve found a way around using so much, you want to tax them for not using so much. Uproar Over Bloated Sandy Aid Package Well, we know there will be lots of fraud & waste, and Milton Friedman once said that if not for fraud & waste, government could do even more harm than they already do. Hillary Clinton script has Hollywood buzzing I’m anxious for the scene in which she departs her plane in Bosnia and ducks gunfire. Gore Rammed Through Current TV Deal to Avoid Tax Hikes Perhaps Gerard Depardieu can play him in a movie. They’re both fat, blowhard liberal hypocrites. Iowa Paper Publishes Radical Anti-Gun Column: If People Refused to Give Up Their Guns, ‘Prying’ Them ‘From Their Cold, Dead Hands’ Works for Me I must have missed the adage about the pen being mightier than the gun . . . . . Boehner tells GOP he’s through with one-on-one Obama talks I would be, too, if I lost every time . . . . but I won’t believe it until I see it. Al Jazeera completes deal to buy Current TV A group that derives its money from fossil fuels buys a TV network from a guy who decries fossil fuels . . . . for the rest of us. Sounds about right. Obama missing in action I hope he stays that way for the next 4 years. Uncle Rick “Obama: We raised taxes, but the rich still aren’t paying their fair share” And what is their ‘fair share’? Everyone seems to think there is definitely such a thing (I suppose I do, too), but no one seems to have a metric to determine what it might be for any ‘class’ of people, let alone any individual. “ Al Jazeera Seeks a U.S. Voice Where Gore Failed” From Al Gore to Al Jazeera. Does anyone else see the sweet irony here? Palmetto Intel would be bringing exactly what people want from cable — a bundle that is of your own choosing. Forty channels would work perfectly for my household and it would still include all the sports programming my husband could possibly want. Bring it on!! n.n Biological development begins at conception. The brain, and what can be reasonably construed as consciousness, begins development within one month. Elective abortion in general is execrable. Elective abortion beyond the first month is premeditated murder. The political opportunism of post-tropical cyclone Sandy: Science, Politics and the “Hurricane Deductible” Americans of Asian descent account for under 5% of the population. It is difficult to describe diversity as anything other than a diversity of individuals. The Left-wing opportunists are learning morality the hard way. In any case, the issue is Democratic (and democratic) leverage, and the Americans of Asian descent do not have the numbers and are not nearly as emotionally appealing as other minority groups. Igor Cable is sweatin’ bullets right about now, with Intel’s announcement that you don’t have to be locked into a smorgasboard of channels, but can “have it YOUR way”. The Sandy aid package was over 60% pork. For once Bonehead did something RIGHT, but I still want to show him the door. Gore found another sucker. Al Jizya… Isfahan is NOT a “no-bomb zone”, I guess… That Iowa paper may be on to something. Bring it on! “You can’t negotiate with someone who wants you destroyed” Yep. Which is why Bonehead needs to find an exit. Haavahd, you sowed the wind and now are ready to reap the whirlwind. BOHICA! *bucksnort* Tallyman Is the wimp getting the hook? The Three Stooges, Ried, Boehner and Obama, are still expecting applause for their theatrics. Gore, the Divinity student, has, as a self-anointed god, exempted himself from the taxes he adores.
