White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday there will be no deficit deal unless Republicans agree to raise tax rates on the wealthiest households.

[snip]The president wants tax rates extended on all households below that threshold, but says rates above it should be phased out.

The USA is now the ASS.

American Socialist States.

It took 100 year to get to this tipping point.
I say let us have it out. They can take their phucking fiscal cliff and shove it.

If these communist bastards bastards want CWII, lets have it now. I would rather go to my grave a freeman in Washingtons country than a slave in Obamas.

The top tax rate is currently 35%. Once state and local taxes are added in the total rate is obscene.

I heard a person on radio today rationalizing increasing the rate, because Romney paid 14% last year. She forgets that he is retired and is paying on income from investments. He does not receive a salary. She also forgets that before he gets his money, it has already been taxed repeatedly.

The Left keeps wanting to tax the rich, but they forget that most of those who are really wealthy do not earn a salary, and will never be affected by a raise in taxes.

The Left will end up destroying the middle class in their effort to demonize the “rich”. They will destroy the same individuals, who create the jobs they currently have. There are times when I suspect that that is their ultimate goal anyway. Socialism cannot exist with a strong middle class, so its only way to success is to destroy those who produce wealth.

In most cases the individuals on which the Left wants to impose additional taxes worked hard and invested in their future. They pursued and education, set goals for themselves, and worked hard to build a future for themselves and their families.

I really have a problem with those who borrowed a large amount of money to go to a “prestigious” school (read expensive)and majored in an area they knew had limited potential. They are now part of the Occupy Wall Street Crowd, and demand that someone fix their situation.

Compared to the rest of the world even the poorest among us is very rich. All anyone has to do is visit India, Haiti, the Gypsies of Romania, or anywhere in Africa, and they will realize that America has really been blessed.

Third and final...the media’s attempt to explain everything is like asking a drunk to explain nuclear fusion. You eventually realize that you have to ask a ton of questions to figure out what the facts are, and then ration yourself to a few trusted sources.>>>>>>>>>>>>

Try this: ( sung to the tune of walkin in a winter wonderland)

Walkin in a Winter Wonderland.

Leftists sing, are you listening,
In Bohner’s brain, Reid is pi$$ing
A beautiful sight,
We’re happy tonight.
Walking in Obama’s wonderland.

Gone away is the budget,
All we can do, is try to nudge it
Obama sings a love song,
As we go along,
Walking in Obama’s wonderland.

In the meadow we can build Rice’s snowman,
Then pretend that she is Secretary State

She’ll say: Are you married?
We’ll say: No man,
But you can do the job
If thats your fate.

Later on, we’ll conspire,
As we dream by Reichstag fire
To face unafraid,
The treason we’ve made,
Walking in Obama’s wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
And pretend that he’s Obama’s clown
We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman,
Until the Constitution knocks Obama down.

When in debt, ain’t it thrilling,
Though your wallet gets a chilling
We’ll frolic and play,in the fascist way,
Walking in Obama’s wonderland.
