Please limit discussion in this area to local and state politics.

Oops -- sorry, Massimo.

The second quote was from the Rich, though.

And the "investigator" appointed by the racist conman (eric holder) running the justice department (when not suing florida or arizona) is under investigation and about to get fired, but will (an obama political donor) "investigate" the wrongdoing of the justice department in letting firearms be sent to the drug cartels in mexico (fast and furious) and the (let's make obama look tough on terrorism) top secret leaks to the new york times.

God, the obama administration is falling apart, tumbling down. latest negatives over the avowed socialist is 55%. Their lies are catching up to them and even the mainstream media is starting to have a hard time maintaining what little credibility they have by not asking any real questions, much less follow ups about obama.

Gotta love it.

Edit: I forgot all the success of obama's conjobs, I mean green jobs. Turns out trash collectors are a green job. A bus driver is a green job. A kid working part time at a bicycle store is a green job.....

Nope. Most of the tax (and tuition) increases go towards trying to pay for the exponentially increasing cadillac retirement pensions and luxurious health care packages of government unionists.

Talk about zero knowledge of how the world works.

I'd love to. So why is the UW raking their customers over the coals while picking their pockets every year for 5% plus?
What's increased so much?

Caesar gets paid first. You have no claim to "your" money until after Caesar gets his.

Now you're closing in on logic. :D We can actually have a discussion/debate when people act like adults and do that. :D

I agree with you here. I think people at the end of each month should pay their taxes. This means they get their full gross pay each check, then as the write out their bills, they can pay one of their bills--taxes/fica.

I also FIRMLY believe that property taxes should be separate from someone's mortgage payment. And paid every month, just like their mortgage payment and insurance.
Come to think of it, this method of paying taxes should be wholeheartedly supported by those that state "this is what democracy looks like!". Each month, we all should pay the true cost of our democracy.

I know, I know there are too many political games and conjobs being done for anything as "clear and transparent" as that.....

The Chicago Democrat Machine way. I'd like to say I can't believe all these "people's this/that" are falling for it, but knowing them, I do believe it. Thy always fall for the most simplistic fecal matter, over and over and over.

Just don't make him pay taxes. He hates that.


This slightly above bumper sticker silly accusation?
Take your corporation and have "it" buy some stock in some logic course. You seem to be running out of silly things to state in response to adult questions.

And you seriously believe the contributions of the coal and petroleum industries haven't distorted the energy market?

The energy market is worldwide, so it'd be sort of hard to distort such a market, a market that DRIVES the whole world. Green does what percentage again? I know, you have a clothesline, so you use wind power to dry your clothes, but I'm talking about industries actually producing items, actually producing things that people want and need.

I think what you're begging is for people to maintain the collective ignorance. So leftist.

Submit to the collective, maintain the ignorance, deny the anything outside of the collective's echo chamber......

The second quote was from the Rich, though.

Sort of sad to see you publicly beg for forgiveness from a person you probably don't now, in a collective that strives to maintain their ignorance and isolation.

Sad, but ya'll are who ya'll be.

Submit..................and you can be, you will be......

Example: on Monday he implied that a janitor at the UW would betting rich off the 5.5% tuition, a position he refuted today.

Yes, I do have better things to do. I blame the OCD.

Yeah, mine too, and I have to admit at times I get curious and click the "display this post" but fortunately the extra effort reminds me not to respond or quote.

There was a time when Jason would quickly lose patience and send the cornbreads packing, but I suspect that the Althouse clicks have been profitable so he's letting it play out.

And cornbread does far more damage to the conservative cause than I ever could. The fact that he doesn't realize the damage he does to his own cause is just icing on the cake. Keep him posting, as long as I don't have to read it.

Any kid can put someone else on ignore, but the really cool kids loudly proclaim that they have others on ignore.


Because you can't be cool unless you tell everyone why you're cool.
