    This is supposed to be an anti-Bush site, for moonbats to go shrieking about impeachment, but…well, it IS open for everyone.

    Be right back, gotta go leave a message. ;-)

    Such a confusing issue……they way I had it figired is those that put in the time and work get the rewards. True most of the time, their are thieves and liars out there. Diversify one’s investments. I have passed opportunities possibly rewarding me greatly, but I felt the personal cost too high. No problem, no resentments, the world owes me nothing. I am known as a reliable, diligent, loyal employee. It is also known I have turned down offers of promotion. My choice, my reasons. The most important things in my life are human…. My last raise was substantial. I’m not rich, but the Other Half and I are comfortable, our bills are paid, a few grand stashed away, the 401K. Yes, life can jerk your chain, but opportunities remain……I remember working two jobs for ten years, five years without a single day off. I don’t have it in me to do that now, maybe too old. But I did what I had to do at the time…and my wife has expressed her undying admiration for what I led my family through……..bottom line….we aren’t rich…but we earned every goddammed thing we have. I started out with my discharge papers, a quarter in my pocket and a carton of Marlboro’s in my hand………nobody owes me a damned thing. I’m too fucking stubborn, or so my wife says. In truth this tends to make one more understanding and generous…..I cannot turn down a Veterans organization or the March of Dimes. I have my reasons. I tend to help those knocked down get back up…let the spirit heal and rejoin the race. For such is now my way….quietly and anonymously………..for one must answer to one’s own principles….if not in this world, sure has hell in the next one….hmmm…poor choice of terms, huh?
    But fuck this class warfare….

    But wait, “Suprising Jump in Tax Receipts Curbs U.S. Deficit” was the headline.

    Of course! Chimpy’s taking money away from old ladies in wheelchairs and babies! And overtaxing George Soros! Because of the oil!

  6. LC Beth of MVRWC, Imperial Slacker™ Comment by LC Beth of MVRWC, Imperial Slacker™ UNITED STATES

    BAH. I copied/pasted the headline from the post, and it’s misspelled. “Surprising.” PIMF.

  7. Unregistered Comment by LCSerena UNITED STATES

    Surprise, surprise…

    If I paid into approximately 70% of all federal taxes, I think I’d want a tax cut too!

    In the words of Ann Coulter: for those of you who attended public school, 70% is larger than 30%…

  8. Mrs. M Comment by Mrs. M UNITED STATES

    Hmmm….let’s see how simple I can make this so that any mentally challenged 5 year old can understand. Of course that still puts it over the head of the average Moonbat, but all we can do is try.

    I pay less taxes. Which means I get to keep more of my money. Which means that I have more money left over to spend as I please. The businesses where I spend my money, also make more money. They in turn A) Pay taxes on that income, and B) have more income to expand and hire more people. Those people then pay into the tax base, but get to keep more of their hard earned money, therefore giving them more spending power to patronize the businesses of their choice. Those businesses gain profit, pay taxes, and hire more people…….

    Dammit!! A retarded Monkey could understand that!!

    Still puts it over the head of the average Moonbat tho…..

    It’s only “Surprising” to the highly educated reporters and skilled jounalists at the Slimes. To everyone else without a degree in journalism it makes all the sense in the world. It worked under JFK, RR and now under GWB. Too bad GHB slept through that class, he would have served a second term IMHO.

  10. Emperor Darth Misha I Comment by Emperor Darth Misha I UNITED STATES

    Good effort, Mrs M, but you miss the point here (the enormous one on top of the heads of the Leftards):

    When they say “no tax cuts for the rich”, what they really mean to say is “no tax cuts for anybody who EARNS any money.” As evidenced by their hysterics about people who don’t pay taxes in the first place NOT getting any “tax cuts.”

    If you make money, you’re “rich”, and should be punished by taking what you’ve earned and giving it to those too lazy to work.

    That way you create a huge mass of people wholly dependent upon government largesse, a group of dependable slaves who will always and ever vote for the party promising to keep the good times rolling.

  11. L.C. Rowane Comment by L.C. Rowane UNITED STATES

    Personally I’m not in favor of ANY tax-cuts for ANY business until the PROVE they have neither hired NOR will hire ANY illegal aliens.

    That seems to be the major sticking point around here, when the companies get tax breaks they expand and hire another raft of damn wetbacks.

    Rowane ” (#11) says:Personally I’m not in favor of ANY tax-cuts for ANY business until the PROVE they have neither hired NOR will hire ANY illegal aliens“…

    Bravo! Sentiments I can run with…

    Then again its been known for a long time that tax cuts would spur the economy causing even more taxes to be collected since more people were both working and buying…

    Note the words of Richard Lowry of NRO:

    When President Bush pledged in 2004 to cut the deficit in half by 2009, critics guffawed. The Boston Globe headlined a story, “Bush’s plan to halve federal deficit seen as unlikely; higher spending, lower taxes don’t mix, analysts say.” “Fanciful,” “laughable” and “all spin,” said the critics.

    Well, it turns out that 2009 might be coming early this year. The 2004 deficit had been projected to hit $521 billion, or 4.5 percent of gross domestic product. Bush’s goal was to cut it to 2.25 percent of GDP by 2009—not exactly as stirring a national goal as putting a man on the moon, but one that was nonetheless pronounced unattainable. This year, the deficit could go as low as $300 billion, right around the 2009 goal of 2.5 percent of GDP.

    The New York Swine of course have their own in house pseudo economist who on 5.29.03 penned the following drivel: “While the rest of the media leads the cheers, it’s up to New York Times columnist Paul Krugman to explain how Bush is looting the economy. Paul Krugman did not set out to become chicken little. When he started writing his economics column for the New York Times in January 2000, “everything seemed to be going right,” he says. “It had seemed we’d moved into an age of fiscal responsibility.” But by the time George W. Bush’s campaign caught fire that spring, Krugman had discovered his great subject: the disconnect between the rhetoric of the Bush people (“No child left behind”) and the reality of their policies (“Get your greedy-ass government hands off my money”). Though the president’s poll numbers have soared since the 9/II attacks and two successful military campaigns, Krugman has pummeled Bush from all sides with a persistence that would seem compulsive were it not so analytically rigorous. He can take almost any aspect of White House policymaking — tax cuts, deficits, homeland security, white-collar crime, the environment — and in 750 words lay bare the moral, intellectual or economic dishonesty of the president and his political operatives.“…

    Hmmm, apparently no word yet from the pseudo economist declaring when he would start consuming the very large plate of crow that is now sitting before him…

  13. juandos Comment by juandos UNITED STATES

    Well the New York Times always has had this little nagging detail they hope folks won’t think about:

    federal income tax

    As the Heritage Foundation’s Brian M. Riedl noted: More broadly, the accusation that poor families are shouldering more of the tax burden while receiving less of the spending is empirically false. From 1979 through 2003, the total federal tax burden on the highest-earning quintile (one-fifth or 20 percent) of Americans—who earn 52 percent of all income—rose from 56 percent to 66 percent of all taxes. Their share of individual income taxes jumped from 65 percent to 85 percent.[2] On the spending side, antipoverty spending has leaped from 9.1 percent of all federal spending in 1990 to a record 16.3 percent in 2004.[3]

    I’ve known guys that turned down raises, knowing their take home pay would actually decline…now that is a fucking travesty!

  15. Imperial Tobacconist LC&IB M Comment by Imperial Tobacconist LC&IB M UNITED STATES

    I’ve known guys that turned down raises, knowing their take home pay would actually decline…now that is a fucking travesty!

    Yeah, right. I’d like to see some documentation on that one. The bottom line is the average taxpayer is overtaxed, and their ain’t a working Joe around that would turn down a raise because his taxes might increase.

    I pay more in taxes than a lot of people take home every week. I’m an air traffic controller, I make eighty grand a year, and have over 500 bucks deducted from my paycheck for federal income tax alone, every two weeks. And whet do I get for the $13,000+ dollars I pay in federal income tax each year? A government that wants to give our nation away to illegal immigrants, a government that supports abortion, a government that takes my money away to pay money to people who have never held a job in their lives, and have never paid a dime of taxes in their lives, and who cry out about “tax cuts for the wealthy” every time a tax cut is proposed. GET A FUCKING CLUE, it’s the wealthy who PAY most of the taxes, and I’m not wealthy, but I’ve got my burden to pay, because I made something of myself and don’t work a minimum wage job.

    You think this country is a Democracy, or a Federal Republic? Get real. The socialists have won, quietly and one step at time, but we’re living in a socialistic world.
