I thought the titled sounded like humor. I'm still unsure.
The Administration assertion that tax cuts will increase revenue is, essentially, BS. Tax receipts remain below those of the year 2000 in terms of real dollars.

That the administration cotinues to push for fiscally irresponsible tax-cuts in the face of burgeoning federal debt (much of which is being held by hations that don't neccessarily have US interests at heart) and a growing quagmire in Iraq show just how disconnected the Administration is from reality.
Oh, sure.. It sounds like humor...but then what do you do when something like this has such a ring of truth to it?
<b>If you don't understand the Democrats' version of tax cuts (and you are not alone), this will explain it for you:
50,000 people go to a baseball game, but the game was rained out. A refund was then due. The team was about to mail refunds when the Congressional Democrats stopped them and suggested that they send out refund amounts based on the Democrat National Committee's interpretation of fairness.
After all, if the refunds were made based on the price each person paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the wealthiest ticket holders. That would be unconscionable. The DNC plan says:
People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to spend. Call it an "Earned" Income Ticket Credit". Persons "earn" it by demonstrating little ambition, few skills and poor work habits, thus keeping them at entry-level wages.
People in the $25 seats will get back $25, because that's only fair.
People in the $50 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of money and don't need a refund. If they can afford a $50 ticket, then they must not be paying enough taxes.
People in the $75 luxury seats will have to pay another $50, because they have way too much to spend.
<u>The people driving by the stadium who couldn't afford to watch the game will get $10 each, even though they didn't pay anything in, because they need the most help.</u>
Now do you understand? If not, contact Representative Richard Gephart or Senator Tom Daschle for assistance. </b>
Don't know about Republicans but i know conservatives who would disagree with you, jillian.
I don't think addicts are the problem. The whole War on Drugs is the problem. Add to it though that Rush himself never bashed addicts and your argument is moot.
The US should get out of the UN for precisely this reason and others. Whats the point of supporting an organization that won't enforce its own resolutions?
Not related in the slightest. All regulating of big business does is make government richer and cost the taxpayers more at the check out line. Marijuana should be legalized and i think youll find many conservatives who agree because they want LESS government in their lives telling them what to do.
If they cut the ridiculous taxes and regulations on businesses, many jobs won't have to goto India.
Example? Abortion is morally wrong but will always occur. Leave it to the states to decide if they want it or not. Don't use a decision by 9 people in robes to dictate policy for the whole country.
Of course he does. Gays should have stayed in the closet. People tolerated them then. Now they are demanding religious changes from the government.
Evidence? Veteran's benefits have always been disgusting low but i doubt any correlation to a specific party can be made.
People should be able to do what they want with their own lives without government telling them what to do. The people of California elected Arnold and California is a majority of liberals. I guess they felt nothing wrong with his lifestyle.
I don't remeber that argument. I remember people being upset at the fact that sexuality in general is taught in schools. Health class is one thing but a class on how to have sex and the types of sexual positions to use are completely inappropriate in a school setting.
Who did we belittle? As i recall our "Long time Allies" we're getting kickbacks from the enemy. So when push came to shove, they sided with their wallets and not their "long time allies."
What republican preaches this? Everyone i know thinks the medical system in this country is a joke thanks to ridiculous malpractice laws and sky rocketing taxes.
Where is it said that we provide health care to any Iraqis let alone all of them? And government health care is socialism.
Global warming is junk science. There is no solid evidence to prove that humans have any effect on climate change yet its pushed out there like we are the SOLE cause of climate change. Tobacco is a lobbying problem that youll find politicians from both parties sipping the kool-aid. Creationism is a theory just like evolution. Theories have every right to be taught to kids if they are explained as theories and not facts.
Saddam was our ally in the early 80's thanks to Jimmy Carters incompetence with Iran. It didnt make him a good guy. It made him similar to Stalin in WW2. We fought the same enemy. When Saddam started grouping up with Bin Laden and other terror groups, he became a threat and needed to be removed.
A president putting himself in a position where he can be blackmailed by an extramarital affair by foreign leaders is an impeachable offense. Where did Bush lie? Still havent heard that one yet.
Or removing guns from citizens? Or granting abortion on demand?
George Bush's driving record is public record and you know all there is to know. He had a DUI in his 20's and a couple of speeding tickets. Hillary is still hiding all the illegal things she did to get Bill elected governor and president and now getting herself elected.
What are you talking about here?
Again whats your angle?
Castro is an enemy of the US. As soon as he dies, im sure trade will resume with Cuba. Even though China and Vietnam don't have fond feelings towards us, they are willing to put them aside to make money. Castro will not. He wants to keep Cuba under wraps and trap the people there.
A crappy list of warped positions and slanted ideas devised to portray the opposing party in a bad light!?!?! How exciting! How original! How true! How pointful! Wow, did your really think of those all by yourself?
Obviously we've been on the wrong path, but now that we have these sagely lists to light the way, the nation will surely follow the right path.
Jillian. Rush is a radio host, not a legislator, the relative importance of their positions matters.
Kennedy gets no credit for coming forward, BECAUSE HE GOT BUSTED FIRST.
