We should all devote our energies and resources to toppling our real enemy rather than undermining one another.

Longrifle, whenever I see one of those news blurbs about some Hussein who killed his wife or his daughter in some American State, I ask myself: WHAT was he doing here? Who let him in? Who approved this? What do we need all these Husseins here for in the first place?

You heard wrong. 20% of the population of Israel is Arab. Beside, being surrounded by them on all sides is probably not consistent with Ummah's meaning.

Monica appears interested in OPC (Operation Punk Control).
But how committed is she aside from the 'POTUS Punk' rhetoric?

It is a bit puzzling that Monica's actions don't seem to match her rhetoric. Maybe she's just doing her radio show for the money and we're the audience she knows she has.

Why not show us some love and CONTROL THE multi-handled PEST.

Longrifle, it's these idiots like the X-lax who will get us all killed if they keep voting in their ridiculously LIEberal kin.

Ted KKKennedy bears the blame for all the Husseins in this country.

And it's the leftards who are holding Israel back from moving all the "palestinians" to where they belong, namely Jordanistine.

Then take a hammer to the dome of the rock in Jerusalem and if they attack take them out.

Simple as that, if it weren't for the Fifth Column everywhere.

Like that Italian fool who got himself jihaded by some of his terrorist friends.

Libs are like that German woman who jumped in the polar bear cage at the Berlin zoo and was surprised that the bear attacked.

Kute Kuddly Knut.

I only wish that ALL libs would jump into the bear cage or head to Gaza and we'd be rid of them so we can finally defend ourselves against the jihad being waged against us on all fronts.

Which is why 2012 looms LARGE.

The enemy MUST BE DEFEATED. And not with some Furloughbee at the helm.

Well, we all know WHY they are gone. I betcha that Trump will re-instate them AND re-instate DADT.

I don't think he'll throw them out entirely, which would actually be better for morale, but at least under DADT, they don't flounce their behavior all over the place.

Funny I always thought moslems were gay because of how many of them act when they get a little drunk.

But even they don't have a military that is officially gay.

But let's hope they give them the money they need so they can implement their much-needed missile shield.

The best shield would be of course, to just flatten the place and be done with it.

Don't know. Even Reagan was a liberal in many ways.
He raised taxes , expanded social security,
His 100 billion dollar tax hike. The largest since WW2. Up to 2006 at least. Don't have the figures after that.

Trump looks good on camera with his flip cut, but Sarah Palin gave her speech like bungy-cord jumping off a bridge for the hundredth time.

Would Trump enshrine the power elite or take them on? What sort of abalone shell decorations does he have on his yacht anyway?

OC Republican allegedly sent offensive Obama email
By SHAYA TAYEFE MOHAJER, Associated Press Shaya Tayefe Mohajer, Associated Press Sat Apr 16, 11:26 pm ET

LOS ANGELES – A Southern California Republican Party official was under fire Saturday after allegations she sent an email that included an altered photo depicting President Barack Obama as an ape.

An e-mail reportedly sent by party central committee member Marilyn Davenport shows an image, posed like a family portrait, of chimpanzee parents and child, with Obama's face artificially superimposed on the child. Text beneath the photo reads, "Now you know why no birth certificate."

Davenport, when reached by The Associated Press, said she would provide a written statement with her response, but several hours later she had not issued one.

The alternative newspaper OC Weekly first reported the story, and was told by Davenport that the e-mail was "just an Internet joke." She also asked the Weekly, "You're not going to make a big deal about this are you?"

Republican Party of Orange County Chairman Scott Baugh told The Associated Press on Saturday that he wants an ethics investigation into the incident.

"It's just highly inappropriate, it's a despicable message, it drips with racism and I think she should step down from the committee," said Baugh.

Baugh said it could be several days before it's known whether the ethics committee will agree to investigate Davenport.

At the very least, Baugh said, Davenport should be apologizing for what she's done rather than attacking whoever leaked the email to media, referring to an email Davenport sent after the story broke calling on "the coward" who leaked the email to come forward.

Davenport, a tea party activist, represents the 72nd Assembly District in Orange County on the central committee.

She represents Brea, Placentia, Fullerton and portions of other Orange County cities to the county committee tasked with fundraising, campaigning and debating policy for the Republican Party.

Super rich see federal taxes drop dramatically
By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER, Associated Press Stephen Ohlemacher, Associated Press Sun Apr 17, 4:02 pm ET

WASHINGTON – As millions of procrastinators scramble to meet Monday's tax filing deadline, ponder this: The super rich pay a lot less taxes than they did a couple of decades ago, and nearly half of U.S. households pay no income taxes at all.

The Internal Revenue Service tracks the tax returns with the 400 highest adjusted gross incomes each year. The average income on those returns in 2007, the latest year for IRS data, was nearly $345 million. Their average federal income tax rate was 17 percent, down from 26 percent in 1992.

Over the same period, the average federal income tax rate for all taxpayers declined to 9.3 percent from 9.9 percent.

The top income tax rate is 35 percent, so how can people who make so much pay so little in taxes? The nation's tax laws are packed with breaks for people at every income level. There are breaks for having children, paying a mortgage, going to college, and even for paying other taxes. Plus, the top rate on capital gains is only 15 percent.

There are so many breaks that 45 percent of U.S. households will pay no federal income tax for 2010, according to estimates by the Tax Policy Center, a Washington think tank.

"It's the fact that we are using the tax code both to collect revenue, which is its primary purpose, and to deliver these spending benefits that we run into the situation where so many people are paying no taxes," said Roberton Williams, a senior fellow at the center, which generated the estimate of people who pay no income taxes.

The sheer volume of credits, deductions and exemptions has both Democrats and Republicans calling for tax laws to be overhauled. House Republicans want to eliminate breaks to pay for lower overall rates, reducing the top tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent. Republicans oppose raising taxes, but they argue that a more efficient tax code would increase economic activity, generating additional tax revenue.

President Barack Obama said last week he wants to do away with tax breaks to lower the rates and to reduce government borrowing. Obama's proposal would result in $1 trillion in tax increases over the next 12 years. Neither proposal included many details, putting off hard choices about which tax breaks to eliminate.

In all, the tax code is filled with a total of $1.1 trillion in credits, deductions and exemptions, an average of about $8,000 per taxpayer, according to an analysis by the National Taxpayer Advocate, an independent watchdog within the IRS.

More than half of the nation's tax revenue came from the top 10 percent of earners in 2007. More than 44 percent came from the top 5 percent. Still, the wealthy have access to much more lucrative tax breaks than people with lower incomes.

Obama wants the wealthy to pay so "the amount of taxes you pay isn't determined by what kind of accountant you can afford."

Eric Schoenberg says to sign him up for paying higher taxes. Schoenberg, who inherited money and has a healthy portfolio from his days as an investment banker, has joined a group of other wealthy Americans called United for a Fair Economy. Their goal: Raise taxes on rich people like themselves.

Shoenberg, who now teaches a business class at Columbia University, said his income is usually "north of half a million a year." But 2009 was a bad year for investments, so his income dropped to a little over $200,000. His federal income tax bill was a little more than $2,000.

"I simply point out to people, `Do you think this is reasonable, that somebody in my circumstances should only be paying 1 percent of their income in tax?'" Schoenberg said.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said he has a solution for rich people who want to pay more in taxes: Write a check to the IRS. There's nothing stopping you.

"There's still time before the filing deadline for them to give Uncle Sam some more money," Hatch said.

Schoenberg said Hatch's suggestion misses the point.

"This voluntary idea clearly represents a mindset that basically pretends there's no such things as collective goods that we produce," Schoenberg said. "Are you going to let people volunteer to build the road system? Are you going to let them volunteer to pay for education?"

The law is packed with tax breaks that help narrow special interests. But many of the biggest tax breaks benefit millions of American families at just about every income level, making them difficult for politicians to touch.

The vast majority of those who escape federal income taxes have low and medium incomes, and most of them pay other taxes, including Social Security and Medicare taxes, property taxes and retail sales taxes.

The share of people paying no federal income tax has dropped slightly the past two years. It was 47 percent for 2009. The main difference for 2010 was the expiration of a tax break that exempted the first $2,400 of unemployment benefits from taxation, Williams said.

In 2009, nearly 35 million taxpayers got a tax break for paying interest on their home mortgages, and nearly 36 million taxpayers took the $1,000-per-child tax credit. About 41 million households reduced their federal income taxes by deducting state and local income and sales taxes from their taxable income.

About 36 million families cut their taxes by nearly $35 billion by deducting charitable donations, and 28 million taxpayers saved a total of $24 billion because their income from Social Security and railroad pensions was untaxed.

"As a matter of policy, there would be a lot of ways to save money and actually make these things work better," said Leonard Burman, a public affairs professor at Syracuse University. "As a matter of politics, it's really, really difficult."

hey, LIE-berator, why don't you take your LIE-beral FILTH and SHOVE IT. If you want to get into a p*ssing contest on racism we can start with 'rev' wright, the revs Jackson/sharptoon, and The First Wookie before we move on to the ANOINTED ONE himself. OK?

Noone here cares about your fake statistics and "professors" who are eager to tax "the rich".

Maybe you need to stop cashing your nut money checks in San FranFreakshow to bring down the deficit instead.

4. Oklahoma's Governor, Mary Fallin, turned away the federal money earmarked for her state for implementation, saying she's not going forward with it.
------------------------
I'm really proud of our new Republican Governor for refusing to take the bait and implement this God awful bill. The good people of Oklahoma rejects this idiotic bill and refused to be bribed into taking FED money. I'm proud of the fact that EVERY county in the great state of Ok voted for John McCain in 2008.

Someone needs very much to get away from their very limited us vs. them dichotomy. There are many liberals far more conservative than you are, as are many conservatives far more liberal than you are.

What matters beyond this phony left vs. right dichotomy, is who wants to change the world and why and how and what kind of world will result.

News flash: The only way to bring down the deficit IS TO TAX THE RICH.

Nothing else will fly with the American People, especially cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, and other services.

And the statistics are quite exemplary. You can throw billions of Koch dollars at them to try and change them, but it really is pissing in the wind.

But then, that's your entire life, isn't it Tony?

Plunder
to rob of goods by open force as in war
to rob despoil or fleece
to take wrongfully as in pillage.
As Arte Johnson said;
Verrrrry Interrrrrestinggggg!

jay

Acutally, have seen racism from ALL groups. remember that tea party sigh that said,"The only thing brown here is this sign." Several 1000 teapartiers want david Duke to run for president.
And, if Plunder means to rob in some shape or form. Another word could be to loot. As, that link that DC posted weeks ago about why Japanese are "Suppose" to be better than Haitians. When all it showed was a differnce in a countries economy. And, if we adopt the plunder mentality in the mideast. What's next? The rape that the haitians do?
If we adopt the ways of the enemy. Then, how can we be better than them?

jay

Shoul add what really effected Haiti into being a poor country was when they lost most of their vegetation.
