Obama says he ´won´t
compromise´ on taxes

Associated Press, by Ben Feller

REDFORD, Mich. — President Barack Obama warned Monday that he "won´t compromise" on his demands that the wealthiest Americans pay more in taxes, digging in on the chief sticking point between the White House and Republicans as they seek a way to avert the "fiscal cliff." Obama brought his pressure-Congress campaign to the heart of industrial America, ripping lines from his own re-election bid as the nation inched closer to a perilous economic cliff. He said the country couldn´t afford a "manufactured" crisis....

Comments:
Now it´s a class warfare campaign, which is remarkably similar to the reelection campaign.
Quite the uniter, isn´t he? /s off/

Useless empty suit. Its not a "Manufactured" crisis. The fiscal cliff is real and no matter what happens in January you are driving right over it, at high speed.

The Pubbies will cave on the rates, the economy, already in pre recession mode will tip into a double dip which could be even deeper than the first dip and you will continue to blame Bush and the Republicans.

I truly believe that in four years as we wind up the 2016 election we will still be barraged with "If only the wealthiest among us (thosee making more than 50,00 a year by then) would pay just a little bit more, if they would just pay their fair share, we could clean up the mess we inherited.

The night is always darkest before the dawn. Its a shade of pitch black out like I´ve never before experienced, and I see no glimmer of reprieve.

The only way out of this mess is to increase taxable income. You do that by less regulation and job killing crap like Obamacare, and allowing the producers to expand businesses and hire workers. Giveaways to the nonproductive moochers don´t generate tax revenue. Raising rates just drives more income out of the country.

This issue demonstrates the complete ineptitude of the Republican party leadership.

The word "fair", and the term "fair share" have been used over and over for months without a hint of rebuttal from the pubbies.

I would bet the ranch that a small minority of the populace knows what the percentage and/or total dollars of taxes collected from the top 2%, 5%, or 10% are.

In addition, I´m sure very few people know that many working people not only pay NO income tax, but get money sent TO them from the IRS!

Its not a "Manufactured" crisis. The fiscal cliff is real and no matter what happens in January you are driving right over it, at high speed.

The trouble is that nothing Duh Wun is willing to do will fix the cliff nor even stop its growth. The fiscal cliff is the National Debt. Not one word that Geithner claimed to be "0bama´s plan" will help with the "fiscal cliff" problem.

Any/all new sources of tax revenue should be dedicated to paying off the debt, not increasing the entitlement class.

The only measures that will slow the inevitable plunge over the fiscal cliff are measures that cut spending. NOT just the growth of spending, but actual dollars spent.

The House needs to not compromise on taxes. Don´t pass any tax or spending increases. All tax and spending matters have to orignate and be approved in the Congress. The President can go play basketball, jump in the lake, I don´t care.

The last thing the Obamboozler wants to do is make the economy healthy, wealthy and wise. The goal of Obummer is to keep ´em dumber in the Summer, witless in the Winter, simple in the Spring and foolish in the Fall (especially at election time)!
In plain word, he is out to break the back of small business, get more and more voters on welfare and food stamps and weaken this country any way possible.

He´s sucking the soul out of America one executive order, one demagogic statement, and one intransigence at a time. Lord do I wish this nightmare was over! We´re in the early stages of a Uganda or Zimbabwe meltdown and when the free phones are out of minutes and the EBT card won´t go through and Section 8 can´t make up the rest of the rent, we´ll bear witness to the full flowering of class-envy of the entitlement deprived, and manic rage brought about by the despicable Communists huddled together like thousands of little Shmeagles coveting their ´´Precious´´ power.

Anger is brewing among service members and veterans groups after the publication of a New York Times op-ed that tries to link veterans and white supremacists. The piece came just days after a 73-year-old white supremacist and veteran, Frazier Glenn Miller, was arrested in an attack that killed three people at a Jewish center in Overland Park, Kansas. In the column, op-ed contributor Kathleen Belew writes: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nine-page report detailing the threat of domestic terrorism by the white power movement.

Maryland health officials are investigating possible cases of food poisoning at what may be the worst-ever venue — a gathering of government and industry leaders attending a national Food Safety Summit. At least four people called the Baltimore City Health Department this week to report that they developed diarrhea, nausea and other symptoms about 12 hours after eating a meal April 9 during the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. That was midway through the annual meeting held April 8 to 10 that attracted more than 1,500 food safety professionals, including staff from federal agencies as well as businesses such

Russia and Ukraine struck a deal Thursday to end unrest in eastern Ukraine stoked by pro-Russian militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said. The militants must refrain from violence, lay down their illegal weapons and return seized buildings to their rightful owners, Kerry said. In return, Ukraine agreed to offer amnesty to protesters who had not committed capital crimes. Kerry called the agreement “a good day’s work,” but warned that the United States would impose further sanctions on Russia if it didn’t see progress soon. “None of us leave here with the sense that the job is done because the

DENVER — Authorities say a Wyoming college student who jumped to his death from a Denver hotel balcony ate more than the recommended serving of a marijuana cookie. Police reports released Thursday said 19-year-old Levy Thamba Pongi consumed a little more than one cookie that his friend purchased from a pot shop. The reports say a clerk told his friends to cut it into six pieces and eat one piece at a time. The friends did so, but it´s unclear from the reports whether Pongi heard the advice.

Banana Republicans: New Head Of

On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said he’s considering caucusing with Republicans if they win a majority of seats in the Senate during the midterm elections. Shortly after he voted with Republicans on Wednesday against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a piece of legislation that Democrats have prioritized ahead of the November elections, King was asked whether he might align with Republicans. Since he was elected in 2012, the two-term Maine governor has caucused with Democrats and voted with them on most issues. “I’ll make my decision at the time based on what I think is best for Maine,”

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

The U.S. trade deficit climbed to the highest level in five months in February as demand for American exports fell while imports increased slightly. The deficit increased to $42.3 billion, which was 7.7 percent above the January imbalance of $39.3 billion, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. (Snip) The administration is negotiating one trade agreement with Japan and 10 other Pacific nations. The other agreement would be a trans-Atlantic deal with the 28-nation European Union. The deals would lower trade barriers and are seen by supporters as a good way to boost U.S. export sales. But critics, including many labor unions,

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,
