It's not the taxes, it's what you do with them. Right now, the rich are hoarding their income. It's doing nobody but their stockbrokers any economic good. Pulling it out of their hides and putting it into infrastructure projects instead of blowing it up in the deserts of Afghanistan and Iraq will grow the economy. You may pay less for a share of JPM tomorrow, but you'll get rich on construction companies and auto makers who've gone hybrid or better.
yes!!! I too am tired of this war nonsense. Rom would have embroiled us in another war within a month of office. Funny how the Rom supporters are just that...supporters...would they allow their children, Mr Romney to fight an adventurist war? We need to get OUT of other cultures affairs and now. I am sick of my taxes going there..!!!!!!!
Yes forget money for defense, let the Chinese be the worlds policemen. I'm sure they would have the ours and the worlds interest at heart more than us ugly Americans. I would bet my life the Chinese would never use torture or imprison any one without just cause.
Portion of an article from National Review Online Nov 5th: "On June 27, a plane carrying Wen Jiabao made a “technical” stop on the island of Terceira, in the Azores. Following an official greeting by Alamo Meneses, the regional secretary of environment of the sea, the Chinese premier spent four hours touring the remote Portuguese outpost in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
Wen’s Terceira walkabout, which followed a four-nation visit to South America, largely escaped notice at the time, but alarm bells should have immediately gone off in Washington and in European capitals. For one thing, Wen’s last official stop on the trip was Santiago, the capital of Chile. Flights from Chile to China normally cross the Pacific, not the Atlantic, so there was no reason for his plane to be near the Azores. Moreover, those who visit the Azores generally favor other islands in the out-of-the-way chain.
Terceira, however, has one big attraction for Beijing: Air Base No. 4. Better known as Lajes Field, the facility where Premier Wen’s 747 landed in June is jointly operated by the U.S. Air Force and its Portuguese counterpart. If China controlled the base, the Atlantic would no longer be secure. From the 10,865-foot runway on the northeast edge of the island, Chinese planes could patrol the northern and central portions of the Atlantic and thereby cut air and sea traffic between the U.S. and Europe. Beijing would also be able to deny access to the nearby Mediterranean Sea." Article goes on look it up...
Hey but you libs might be right. We can save money on defense and we can take that money and just think, we can buy "Omama" phones for the whole freaking country, yipeee. I want my Obama phone, oh and don't forget my internet access too. ps can you tell me if I can get smokes with these food stamps or do I have to sell them for half price under the counter at Joe's liquor store down the street? Do I get mortgage forgivness for all my previous payments I made over the past 23 years? Can I get a refund of all my universial access phone tax's, if I don't want an Obama phone and just want to continue to use 2 cans and a string?
