    Hey there kiddo! did Faith ever answer back as to her almost getting fired but tenure saved her butt? How silly of me to think she would have since she made the case that tenure protects the lesser instead of adding to the BEST education available!

    I know I am being a nasty person! It is interesting though because almost evry one of the lefties over the weekend at one point or another contradicted themselves and made the case against their loony tune points! :shock: :lol:

    I hope your kids didnt break anything on the sledding hills! :lol:

  • Cathy

    Well, Dougie then you are SOL.

    One of my top three questions I ask before taking contact jobs is, “How many times a week do you want the contractor on site?”

    I told you before to post short. The left can not read, you know who they are. I read to slow to get all that.

    I will shorten it up! King Obama and his band of idiots break the law AGAIN!!

  • Cathy

    @ratboy, Of course Faith didn’t. Every debate I have with her ends in her saying, “oh the irony”, “its a strawman”, “it’s a red herring” or “it’s not we were talking about.”

    My kids are black and blue. But when you play bumper sleds that happens. My kids think it’s great fun racing each other down the hill and bump into each other (well trying to knock the other person off their sled). Seeing how I wasn’t there to stop them, I’m very lucky all three are still alive.

    Come back at night, after they’ve watched Dr. Maddow to see where they are supposed to be on the issues of the day. :razz: Otherwise the “answers” are about Faux News, old dying viewers, “key demo” and uneducated bloggers.

  • Cathy

    I’m working on my taxes and I only have one things to say:

    Why can’t we just have a flat time?

  • Cathy

    LOL Apple.

    Yes, we need to listen to Dr. Maddow. They are so impressed because she, like Bill Clinton, is a Rhodes Scholar. Which means she was taught political science and the U.S. law by the British.

    I have an appointment on March 30th at which point he will tell me how big of a check I need to write. Next year will be more interesting because we have broken things into smaller pieces and moved things into my kids names and set up thing for my grandkids but I promised all involved that at tax time i would take care of it. BOY AM I AN IDIOT!!!! :lol:

  • Cathy

    There are so many tax credits for the poor. Again I want a flat tax. Tax credits are a way to get people to do things. So, why do you only get a child tax credit when you make under $110000 married. Two college grads make that. People who make good money will likely have children that make good money. If we went to promote a group of people to have children, wouldn’t it be wise to promote the top performer not the bottom?

    I am starting to believe the Mr. Mike Judge, 2006 movie Idiocracy is becoming fact.

    Cathy Cathy Cathy, you ARE NOT LISTENING!!!! The damn ole rich 1%ers get all the breaks!!! Not the normal folks!! I dont know what we are going to do with you if you dont catch on pretty quick!!!

    I laugh like hell when I am around a bunch of people that are talking about the big ole refunds they are gonna get! First I add it up in my head and realize that the refunds they are getting I may be sending! Second I assk them why in the world they would allow the government to have their money all year long and then give it back to you with no interest? Back when I was starting out making next to nothing I knew that the government using my money interest free all year was NOT the best way to do business!!

    Friday is open and it looks like Hannity will be looking for a new job again!!1 :lol: :lol:

    In Monday trading on the New York Stock Exchange, McGraw-Hill shares closed down $8.04 at $50.30, and Moody’s shares dropped $5.90 to $49.45.


    S&P, Moody’s and Fitch have long faced criticism from investors, politicians and regulators for assigning high ratings to thousands of subprime and other mortgage securities that quickly turned sour.

    The rating agencies are paid by issuers for ratings, a standard industry practice that has nonetheless raised concern about potential conflicts of interest.

    In January 2011, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission called the agencies “essential cogs in the wheel of financial destruction” and “key enablers of the financial meltdown.”

    The lawsuit itself may prove less significant than the message it sends,” said Manns, the law professor. “Filing a high-profile lawsuit against S&P tells the rating industry at large that the government is serious about holding rating agencies responsible, and that they must be much more careful.”

    Polls show Argentines worry most about inflation, which private economists estimate could reach 30 percent this year. The government says it’s trying to hold the next union wage hikes to 20 percent, a figure that suggests how little anyone believes the official index that pegs annual inflation at just 10 percent.

    The government announced the price freeze on the first business day after the International Monetary Fund formally censured Argentina for putting out inaccurate economic data. The IMF has given Argentina until September to bring its statistics up to international standards, or face expulsion from the world body in November.

    Gee… spend in deficit and then run out of money, then the value of your currency falls and inflation MUST come next. Oddly enough this is exactly what Obama etal are doing. We’re going to be looking at double digit inflation very, very soon.

  • Cathy

    @Ratboy, Many people that get big refunds are paying the min in. They are only giving the feds $800 or $900 but they have three children. So, they get a $3000 in children tax credits. They get more money back from the government then they pay in.

    I’ve told my husband if we were smart. We’d have our son become our daughter’s guardian and not claim them on our taxes. I did his taxes that way for fun. And even though he only paid $425 in federal taxes the feds would give him $8123 refund because of the college tax credit and child tax credit.
    At Christmas, my son and my daughter’s 19 year old friend were complaining about not having money and going to college. I took them that they should get married and the fed would pay for their college. Once you are married you don’t have to go off of your parents returns. That $5000 in Pell Grant money for each, plus tons of other need based scholarships. Of course they both looked at me like I was nuts and I said, “hey people do it for green cards. No one said you have to live together.” :lol:
