  • Fair Tax Events in February

    Your Nightmare to all the best
    You found me out. That’s it! From what I’ve posted on this thread I am obviously a big fan of oppressive state power. Up with the Gestapo. Sieg Heil!! Geeez. Yeah, I have a vested interest in the IRS. I am the majority stockholder. Ya-ha-ha(my approximation of an evil laugh).
    Welcome to FairTax threads. They're the threads reality forgot. Discussing the FairTax on FR is like arguing with the guys who protest outside post offices on April 15... wait... it is arguing with the guys who protest outside post offices on April 15.

    PLLLLLLLLeassssssssse, When she became the F Lady she also became Fair Game,It’s ok for you Dem’s to pick on both Laura and Barbara but heaven forbid someone say something about a Democrat.
    Did you think it was OK for Dems to pick on Laura and Barbara? I didn't. Why would I think it's OK now?


    I think you are on the wrong site.
    Maybe I am. Do you know of a site where people can discuss conservative issues without attacking politician's wives?

    This is a very rude thread. I thought FReepers were above this type of stuff. If you have a problem with Barack Obama, why not keep it to him and leave his wife out of it.

  • Barry's Oath - Was there a problem, intentional by C.J. Roberts?

    You have it exactly backwards. The presidential oath is the only oath required by the Constitution. The day and time of the swearing was established by legislation. The presidential oath cannot be changed except by constitutional amendment. The day and time of swearing in can be changed anytime Congress passes a new law on the matter.
    Article II, Section 1, last paragraph
    Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
    You are forgetting the 20th Amendment that states "The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin."

    You’re kidding right? Roberts definitely said faithfully the first time around.
    But he said it at the wrong place.
  • I heard Obama (and Roberts) screwed up the oath, is this true?

    Your Nightmare to Perdogg
    Chief Justice Roberts didn't read the oath correctly and Obama stopped recognizing the error.

    The oath is "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

    Roberts initially stated "that I will execute the office of President of the United States faithfully"

    Yeah, it’s kinda funny to see Republicans waiting until a week before Bush leaves office to start worrying about deficits. From what I gather, Obama wants to cut taxes and raise spending. Sound familiar?

    Didn't Bush sign the bailout bill (didn't he beg for it)? Didn't he also sign the bill that allowed for the continuing resolution? If not then he's failed in his oath of office. The Constitution states "No money shall be drawn from the Treasury but by consequence of Appropriations made by Law." I don't recall any vetoes being overridden so all this spending is being done with his consent.

    And if you had follow the link I provided you would see that the deficit for Oct & Nov was $401 billion. CBO is estimating December at another $83 billion - which would bring the total to $484 billion for the first three months. And he does even take office until 3 weeks into January. Trying to pin all this debt on him is absurd.

    Your Nightmare to tobyhill
    The federal fiscal year started in October. The deficit for the first two months (the only ones reported so far) was over $400 billion. That's about $250 billion more than the same two months last year. We will already be well on our way to the $1.2 trillion before Obama even takes office.

    This mess happened on Bush's watch. I understand the desire to get to Obama - but lets keep it somewhere close to reality.

    how is 10,000 jobs “much higher” when speaking about numbers like 515,000 ?
    You're misreading the article. Economists were expecting 505,000 - the number was 542,000. So it's 37,000 jobs. The 515,000 number was from the previous week.

    He didn’t “report” it. He put a big red headline on his page talking about the “mutiliation” of a young woman. That went well beyond what the link he provided even said.
