    Fox News Culture War: Obama’s Gay Marriage Endorsement Like Another 9/11
    Leave it to Fox News to escalate every political discussion to a nuclear holocaust. In the wake of President Obama’s personal support for gay marriage, Fox, and the rest of the Right-Wing Noise Machine, has declared yet another “war.”

    The Republican National Committee argues that the Tillman Act of 1907 is unconstitutional? Should anyone be surprised? Does this not speak volumes about who this party represents?

    “Fox News Culture War: Obama’s Gay Marriage Endorsement Like Another 9/11″

    It makes me laugh how the Republicans feel that the “War on Women” cheapens the terms war, but Fox news has declared the Democrats War on everything from Christmas to Potatoes

  • Jeff

    @mark

    so true, that is why they remain in their bubble of delusions, where no truth can get in.

  • Jeff

    Found this video on youtube From this episode posted by someone. It seems so rIdIculous but It Is actually true!
    Watching this comedic cartoon makes it more fun to Watch and to try to understand,

    @Nancy
    Do you remember when Jeff would be on here, name calling ,posting under different name’s and posting outrageous comments? No, I guess you don’t.Why? Because you were praising him and his aliases and you would say”please keep posting you’re a breath of fresh air.” Hillbilly and D B see’s through your B S. Nancy? Why didn’t you ever ‘chastise’ Jeff and some others when they would say some ‘petty mean’ stuff to Ratboy,D B and other people that post their opinion ?
    Nancy you claim that you’re a ‘happy,kind and compassion person pill.’Now that’s funny Nancy, that’s all most as funny as some Jeff’s lies . Now, I’ll give you a few lies your ‘gentle and kinder’ Jeffy has posted in the passed Nancy. I’m sitting here at Star bucks in Palms springs watch the sun raise over the desert ,the time was 2:00 am PST and 5:00am EST at the time of his post ( this lie was one of my favorites). I was ‘hanging out’ with Larry King last night ‘D B blew that one up.’ He once claimed to be a ‘Real estate tycoon then claimed he is a O W S’er .Now Nancy you may ask “how do you remember what Jeff has posted ‘ I’ll fill you in Nancy,when someone lie’s and then a few day’s later they forget about the B S lie he posted a few day’s earlier their lies will always catch up to them and stand out and they will always trip their self up and Jeffy has tripped himself up so many times.Jeff lives in a fantasy world through the inter-net and thinks he out ‘smarting people’ ,when in all reality ‘he’s just a well below avg Joe.’With out Media Matters Jeffy has nothing and with out his lie’s he can’t live in his dream world.
    Now Jeffy you can reply back and call me any name you like, (unlike Nancy ‘I can take it’)but it’s really easy to see through your B*LLSH*T,Jeffy.
    Nancy? Have you ever wounder why some people post that you’re a ‘idiot/ignorant?’Maybe it’s because you say ‘name calling isn’t my cup of tea’ and then turn around and praise the likes of Jeff, Bossman and others when they call people name.Nancy it’s always funny when somebody would chastise you and then watch you run to Ratboy,Coffee Steve and others and kiss their a$$ and trying to pretend you haven’t notice that someone just posted a post and was busting on you .Oh,that’s right you claim you don’t read certain people’s post.Nancy not only are you a fool,you also lie ,just like Jeffy..

    Gabriel – I’m willing to assume a backseat to evidence. Show me where cap gains tax cuts are raising enough revenue to pay for themselves, ie. to compensate for the lost revenue that they would otherwise have been generated.

    ———————————–

    As we already discussed i think cap gains should be more inline with “regular rates.” I know I’m in the minority on the right with this view. When you said something along the lines of – I get my pay check they call it earnings. When folks get their cap gains income they call it gains & tax it at a different rate. I also find the argument that “there’s more risk on investing” a good point. In my view that risk should be rewarded. The big question is how much? Lets say middle income is taxed at 30%. Then cap gains at 23-25%. Sound fair? On the other side of the coin is the “earned income tax credit.” I earn my income, do you? Why should the poor get a break on their “earned income” but not every body else? I only posted the video to show that when asked Nobama wasn’t concerned with revenue.

    My theory on tax rates & the economy is their all based on speculation & luck. If the business cycle is booming you collect more revenue no mater what the tax rates are. A slow cycle or recession the less revenue collected. Can tax rates have an effect in helping or hurting? Yes! The hard part is figuring out when to cut & when to raise the rates. If folks knew when a slow down will happen & how long it will last it would be easier to figure out. IMO the rates aren’t as important as the deductions & subsides. Get rid of ALL of them until the budget is balanced.

  • Hillbilly

    Gabriel – And he was bailed out by mommy. Dan Henderson has even more motivation now. Nobody wants to get beat by a mommy’s boy.

    ————————————-

    I read the UFC (Dana White) aren’t gonna punish Bones. I’m guessing they/he doesn’t want to kill the goose who lays the golden egg. I have no idea what his contract says. Maybe there’s nothing in it that calls for a punishment.

  • Hillbilly

    Jeff – Romney’s grandfather and great grandfather had many wives…. That too is a fact.

    ——————————–

    Your source for the grandfather? A legit news source not a blog. The MSM i heard & read (both left & right) says the grandfather didn’t have multiple wives. He might of been married more than once, but only one wife at a time.

    Obamacare to Produce Huge Doctor Shortage

    By 2015, the United States will face a shortfall of nearly 30,000 primary care physicians, due largely to Obamacare — and a shortage of 65,800 by 2025, the Association of American Medical Colleges predicts.

    The shortfall is attributable in part to deterrents to entering the field, such as relatively lower incomes compared to specialists, and the growth of the elderly population in America.

    But the biggest culprit would be Obamacare. If the healthcare reform bill is not overturned by the Supreme Court, up to 33 million previously uninsured Americans will be covered by health insurance, leading to a sharp increase in the demand for medical services. And even if Obamacare is not fully implemented and merely expands Medicaid coverage, 17 million Americans will be added to the Medicaid rolls by 2020.

    One-Third of Young Americans Are Underemployed

    The struggling U.S. economy has been particularly hard on young people — Americans ages 18 to 29 are suffering higher unemployment and underemployment rates than other age groups, a new Gallup poll reveals.

    Unemployment among young adults stood at 13.6 percent in April, up from 12.5 percent in March and the same as in April 2011.

    Among those ages 30 to 49, the unemployment rate stood at 7 percent in April, and at just 6.2 percent among those ages 50 to 64.

    In addition to the unemployed, 18.4 percent of young Americans are working part time but looking for full-time work. Combining that figure with the 13.6 percent unemployed brings the underemployment total to 32 percent — essentially one-third of all Americans ages 18 to 29, according to Gallup.

    That’s up from 30.1 percent in March and 30.7 percent in April 2011, so their situation is not improving.

    Underemployment in April was 14 percent among those ages 30 to 49, and 13.6 percent among those ages 50 to 64.

    He’ll probably have to go on a few public speaking tours to advise young ppl about the dangers of drinking and driving. He already has Philippians 4:13 tattooed on his chest, so a convincing performance should be relatively easy to pull off, unlike Charles Barkley, the dyslexic.
