Obama: No budging on higher tax rates
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/8/2012 9:13:18 AM

Hello, everybody. Over the last few weeks, there’s been a lot of talk about deadlines we’re facing on jobs and taxes and investments. But with so much noise and so many opinions flying around, it can be easy to lose sight of what this debate is really about. It’s not about which political party comes out on top, or who wins or loses in Washington. It’s about making smart decisions that will have a real impact on your lives and the lives of Americans all across the country.

Give it to him! Let him own the results. The GOP needs to press for spending cuts constantly. Those won´t happen but at least we will be on the right side of the debate.

Too bad there is no Republican leader who can effectively counter this. The House Majority Leader is so da-- dumb that he couldn´t win a debate with a six-year old.

Its not a revenue problem, it a spending problem...

Force major cuts. Make that idiot sign a budget and make the Democrats pass one. Enough is enough.

Ø´s plan for the economy can be summarized in three words: "tax the rich." Class warfare at its finest. Worst president in American history.

Best way out of the budget crisis was the most simple as well - Mack Penny Plan (descendent of Connie Mack)

Simply spending baseline minus 1% every years for about 6 years, and the deficit would vanish. No politics, no constituencies, no debates. So simple that the only reason that it cannot be used the solve our fiscal problem is because the Dems (lead by obama) really do want to destroy the country.

And whenever you hear any Dem say that the Republicans have no plan, that person is baldface lying.

Let the fiscal cliff happen. Most Americans were glad to see the Bush tax cuts , but were doing OK before them. If the house holds tough the dems will give in because those at the lower tax rate will be hit the hardest(dems). I would like to see across the board spending cuts also. I think in the long run it´s a winner for the pubs.

I wonder if anyone will call what´s coming The Obama Recession. Certainly not his Ministry of Truth. Certainly not the pusillanimous wussenheimer known as The Speaker. Never what´s known as the Republican "Leadership". Possibly when the economy plunges into the Obama Depression. Maybe the truth will appear in Pravda.

Let the whole bloated deal expire. Social Security and Medicare are going broke, the revenue for the payroll tax holiday has to be repaid out of general funds. Obama´s Stimulus credits for the poor simply and extensions of unemployment benefits encouraged some to live off benefits and credits rather than get another job. There are more Democrats who voted for the deal and for Sequester than GOP. Let it happen. If some are going to pay higher taxes, let all pay higher taxes. Don´t let the Democrats pick and choose who to tax. If you want to reform the tax system, everyone must agree that taxes are bad. They don´t now.

Obama, Reid & Pelosi are given a free pass by the MSM to cite huge trillion $ cuts they´ve already made.... Hello!!!! You are still spending 40% more than taking in!!!!!

Can´t anyone point this out? Run a spot that shows mom living within her budget... then mom running wild without ever having a budget.

I’m Senator Lamar Alexander. Have you ever read something so obviously right that it made you wish you’d written it? That happened to me the other day reading Newt Gingrich’s book ‘Breakout.’ Newt was quoting technology expert Tim O’Reilly, who was talking about the way the government should operate in the internet age. O’Reilly was saying this: “The best way for government to operate is to figure out what kinds of things are enablers of society and then make investments in those things. The same way that Apple figured out, ‘If we turn the iPhone into a platform, outside developers will bring hundreds of thousands of applications to the

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Illinois Dems to offer $100 million in
taxpayer money to lure Obama library site

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:
The stakes go far beyond cattle

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

Fallon: Hugh Hefner´s friends threw him a big 88th birthday party today. They had a naked woman jump out of a giant bran muffin. Fallon: Top movie this weekend was ‘Captain America.’ Earned $303 million worldwide. In other words, Captain America has more money than regular America. Conan: A new modeling agency opened in London the other day that values a model’s personality over thinness and looks. It closed 20 minutes later.

The impending death of Archie
and the sad afterlives of iconic comics
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/13/2014 9:20:47 AM     Post Reply
Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
