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.

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.

Banana Republicans: New Head Of
Virginia GOP on Eric Cantor’s Payroll
PJ Media, by David Steinberg    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/15/2014 3:11:20 PM     Post Reply
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

Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon, Chicago police said. So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it -- and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said.

DENVER – Denver Public Schools administrators believe they are the first school district in the nation to actively seek out people who were initially brought to the United States illegally to now teach in the classroom. "We look forward to increasing the number of great teachers who are in our classrooms and who are also role models for children who have similar cultural backgrounds and life experiences," Tom Boasberg, superintendent of Denver Public Schools, said.

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. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

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.

NEW YORK- CBS News says an editor made an "audio error" in dubbing the sound of a loud traditional car engine over footage of the much quieter Tesla electric car in a story that aired Sunday. Spokesman Kevin Tedesco said Tuesday that the loud car audio has been edited out of the online version of the story on Tesla founder Elon Musk. Anchor Scott Pelley reported the story, and CBS said he wasn´t aware of the added audio ahead of time. The revving sound, as opposed to the much quieter windlike noise of a Tesla, was noticed by the auto enthusiast website

AMMAN- U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry broke from a visit to Italy on Wednesday to try to salvage Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, even as Arab leaders declared they would never meet Israel´s core demand to be recognized as a Jewish state. Kerry flew to Jordan to ask Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to commit to extending the negotiations, just days before Israel is supposed to release a final group of Palestinian prisoners as a confidence-building gesture. Before it releases the prisoners, Israel wants to be assured Abbas won´t abandon the U.S.-brokered talks, which resumed last July after a three-year break. Having initially

As further proof the NFL never is far from the headlines, owners could make plenty of news this week at their spring meetings. They will consider 13 playing rules proposals and seven bylaws. They will discuss expanding the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams, although a vote on such a move is uncertain. Some changes would seem to be slam dunks: extending the height of the goal posts 5 feet to help determine if kicks are good; eliminating overtime in preseason games; placing fixed TV cameras on the goal lines, end lines and sidelines to help with replay reviews.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
