    I guess Americans don't have rights any more. Just privileges that the government can take away.

    From Turbo Tax Timmy, overseer of Trillion deficits and our first ever credit downgrade.

    Oh, the irony

    What's most disturbing is that he feels safe enough to say something that collectivist.

    The powers that be in DC have forgotten that they serve us. That's the only privilege there is in this whole situation. Maybe one day we will remember that we can revoke that privilege ...

    We should buy some OWSers and send them to the Treasury.

    The only time the leftie administration comes close to calling the US a great Country is when they are trying to pick someone's pocket. Remember the 1st lady saying "it's the first time I was ever proud of my country in my adult life"? That's the way they think.

    I guess the 49% who don't pay Federal income tax aren't Americans, then.

    Unless that's different. Somehow. It just is.

    Timmy, in your mad haste to vilify the rich, you didn't give your statement any thought. I can tell.
