No, Igor: If it comes out of their mouths it is the truth. You on the other hand have to proveRead More everything you say. At least that's the way it seemed when I last did jury duty. Hypocrisy.

Last time I had jury duty, the judge giving the instructions told us that when listening toRead More testimony, the police testimony holds no more credence than the average citizen. If you fight a ticket, guess who the judge is going to believe?

My point exactly.
George Soros was the impetus behind the founding of the Democratic Alliance, reports Watchdog.org.

According to William A. Niskanen, one of the architects of Reaganomics, "Reagan delivered onRead More each of his four major policy objectives, although not to the extent that he and his supporters had hoped", and notes that the most substantial change was in the tax code, where the top marginal individual income tax rate fell from 70.1% to 28.4%, and there was a "major reversal in the tax treatment of business income", with effect of "reducing the tax bias among types of investment but increasing the average effective tax rate on new investment". Roger Porter, another architect of the program, acknowledges that the program was weakened by the many hands that changed the President's calculus, such as Congress.[2][21] President Reagan, has remained popular as an antitax hero despite raising taxes eleven times over the course of his presidency, all in the name of fiscal responsibility.[22] Reagan ultimately raised taxes more times than he cut them.[23] According to Paul Krugman, "Over all, the 1982 tax increase undid about a third of the 1981 cut; as a share of GDP, the increase was substantially larger than Mr. Clinton's 1993 tax increase."[10] According to historian and domestic policy adviser Bruce Bartlett, Reagan's tax increases over the course of his presidency took back half of the 1981 tax cut. Though since the Reagan tax reductions, top marginal tax rates have remained lower than at any point in US history since 1931, when the top marginal rate was raised from 25% to 63%. [24]

It's not the number of times that count, it's the size of the resulting cuts, and txes dropped underRead More Reagan, and economy boomed. Reagan's tax increases were part of a deal with Democrats to reduce spending. The taxes went up but the spending cuts never occurred. Just like Reagan's amnesty was supposed to be tied to border enforcement. Reagan's two biggest mistakes involved trusting Democrats to hold up their end of the deal. Those of us who remember that will never be fooled again.

They can put fruity/marshmallow flavors in vodka ( product that is KNOWN to kill people) but not inRead More e-cigarettes, a product that I believe saved my life? Sorry but you can pull my cappuccino flavor loaded vape pen from my cold dead lips.

Extremely good point, Tass Kandle. Makes me wonder about their real motivation.

The bottom line - gun free zones are great for criminals who already don't care about laws!

Hello - this article starts with saying how national news affects our community. If that were theRead More case, why is there not one example of how our community is doing or feeling because of the shutdown? This article has very shoddy research in its presentation. For one thing, the jobs report just release showed there was an uptick in employment in the private sector, proving less big giver kent was a good thing. Also, it had been reported that most Anericans weren't personally affected and so didn't care about it. As for the parks issue, that was purely a result of Obama's choosing to "inflict as much pain as possible on Americans." He personally chose the parks to be affected for his great idea to try to harm the Republican Party. Finally, as for furloughed workers, they just got a free vacation, INCLUDING OUR BRAINLESS SENATOR SHERROD BROWN. (For those of us who saw his lame website excuses.) The bottom line is that the shutdown, however awkward a method, happened because Republicans were trying to draw attention to a very serious problem that Obama and all the a Democrats refused to acknowledge - Obamacare. And it turns out Republicans were 100% right. Democrats refused to heed the warnings and vote for the suggestions Republucans presented to improve /lessen the harm of Obamacare. This article proves the laziness of reporters and media.

Have you read the four agreements? Prior to expressing one's self first ask "is thisRead More necessary".
Hugh Hendry October 27, 2013 at 08:31 am
These conservatives' motivations are very suspect, they see "sin" behind every aspect ofRead More American life; while not looking at their own lives. Let Americans live their lives unabated by the constant oversight of these self-serving, witch hunting, sex starved morons. It's none of their concern who loves whom or what one does for recreation. Conservatives, get a life and leave everyone else alone.

Say anything to get the rubes to keep sending donations. The Girl Scouts should sue him. He probablyRead More also owns a cookie factory. No way this creep isn't doing this for money. Period.
