    Makes me wonder if he isn't actually trying to incite a revolt.

    Then he opens that incoherent blathering pie hole again, and I return the realization that he's merely a stone stupid Fabian socialist ideologue.

    Don't be shy. What are you really trying to say?:lol:

    I looked into my crystal ball and there were lots of people in the streets - not dancing. Can't tell you exactly what they were up to because my crystal ball rolled off the table, hit the floor and is currently out of order. If they pull this crap on Health Care Reform I do believe it's going to get loud around here... Not from cheering either.

    There is little doubt in my mind that if they push this through then they will be through. Too many people know whats going on today. I hope.

    Everybody knows about this. Even the dumb ass Congress critters know. They, however, don't care what the majority of the people want. They are bound and determined to do this thing. If the Democrats push this down our throats there's going to be lots of new faces in Congress real soon.

    This is the Progressives' decades-old dream about to come true. They'll worry about the cost later. If it means careers end, so what? They'll put it their tombstones.

    Strangely, I find that respectable in some ways.

    Fortunately they cannot carve it in stone and it can be changed. If they are stupid enough to push it through.

    It's even worse. Let's take a high tax state like CA. A two income family making $250K is plain old middle class in the Bay Area. Under Obama, their marginal tax rates for trying to improve their lot in life:

    Federal income taxes 41%
    State income taxes 10%
    Medicare 2.9% (including the obama increase )

    That's approx 54% - and then they get to pay sales tax of over 9% on non-food items they purchase locally.

    At some point, the extra work is not worth it, especially for the ones running small businesses.

    Did you use "Dick Morris" and "right" in the same sentence?

    Hilarious.

    So how is the prostitute-toe sucker doing these days?

    Every time he makes a prediction, the opposite usually comes true.
