Re: “White Out?

Packrat makes a good point. Let's make a deal....if we take care of the .1% of "our people" that are "spreading the hate" will you take care of the 95% of "your people" that are ...having the babies, committing the crime, dropping out of school, etc.???

Re: “Chris Davis Explains It All

I am nervous about where the community organizer will try to take us. Higher taxes will surely hurt the economy but I'm equally sure that's where he's headed......afterall...he's a democrat...raising taxes is a normal reaction to any issue. I get little solace from the two options I have with my business...but when I see a new tax....I raise my prices first and then eventually I reduce my expenses by reducing the headcount at the company. Both options are paid by the consumer......not me. Businesses don't pay taxes....customers do. The opposite is also true....when my tax burden is lifted...I invest in the business by expanding which adds equipment and people. It's a natural reaction for business to do this. It's the way capitalism works. Even the great one can't repeal these basic tenets of business.

Re: “It's Obama!

re Plantatree: your point is an interesting one. But when I juxtapose Liberal and educated ......I keep coming back to a concept akin to oxymoron. Liberals are emotional creatures. Emotion does not need education to function. The near opposite is equally true. Education does not improve the emotional response. They merely coexist...each oblivious to the other.This is not necessarily a criticism (but if the shoe fits....) Liberals seem to be stuck in a perpetual PMS state of mind. The anti bush hormone rages uncontrollably ...the brain is paused.....and comments like "we finally beat Bush" spew forth. Yes I know as do you that it took eight years for the liberals to finally "drive Bush from office". Let's not tell them that he was not on the ballot and he could only serve two terms. OK? ;-)

Re: “It's Obama!

I don't think it matters what color a person is.......but you you do need to pick one. Personally I think Barack Hussein Obama is black. I'm cool with that...I think there are many black people in this country. If you focus on his color...you miss the point. It's his politics that are dangerous. I don't care if he wants spinners on his secret service limo.....I just don't want to pay anymore taxes. My little business won't be able to handle it. If I see more taxes (yes...I make over $250k...and $200k...and $150k...and $42k...whatever number he finally settles on) then I will have to let a few employees go to offset it. Barry is right even if you don't like his tone. Personally I'm cool with him...as I support everyone's right to free speech. Unicorn and B (Brad...I presume....seem a bit constipated though)....chill my brothers.
