No, Igor: If it comes out of their mouths it is the truth. You on the other hand have to proveRead More everything you say. At least that's the way it seemed when I last did jury duty. Hypocrisy.

Last time I had jury duty, the judge giving the instructions told us that when listening toRead More testimony, the police testimony holds no more credence than the average citizen. If you fight a ticket, guess who the judge is going to believe?

According to William A. Niskanen, one of the architects of Reaganomics, "Reagan delivered onRead More each of his four major policy objectives, although not to the extent that he and his supporters had hoped", and notes that the most substantial change was in the tax code, where the top marginal individual income tax rate fell from 70.1% to 28.4%, and there was a "major reversal in the tax treatment of business income", with effect of "reducing the tax bias among types of investment but increasing the average effective tax rate on new investment". Roger Porter, another architect of the program, acknowledges that the program was weakened by the many hands that changed the President's calculus, such as Congress.[2][21] President Reagan, has remained popular as an antitax hero despite raising taxes eleven times over the course of his presidency, all in the name of fiscal responsibility.[22] Reagan ultimately raised taxes more times than he cut them.[23] According to Paul Krugman, "Over all, the 1982 tax increase undid about a third of the 1981 cut; as a share of GDP, the increase was substantially larger than Mr. Clinton's 1993 tax increase."[10] According to historian and domestic policy adviser Bruce Bartlett, Reagan's tax increases over the course of his presidency took back half of the 1981 tax cut. Though since the Reagan tax reductions, top marginal tax rates have remained lower than at any point in US history since 1931, when the top marginal rate was raised from 25% to 63%. [24]

It's not the number of times that count, it's the size of the resulting cuts, and txes dropped underRead More Reagan, and economy boomed. Reagan's tax increases were part of a deal with Democrats to reduce spending. The taxes went up but the spending cuts never occurred. Just like Reagan's amnesty was supposed to be tied to border enforcement. Reagan's two biggest mistakes involved trusting Democrats to hold up their end of the deal. Those of us who remember that will never be fooled again.

Let's get to the point. What Jon Daniel tweeted was not true parody (or impersonation) at all.Read More Political parody should mimic the target's personality and actions, not present unrealistic scenarios that bear no resemblance to his behavior. For an example of true parody, see the Onion's current take-off of Eric Cantor. What Daniel did was nasty and unimaginative.

This must be a tax. Because if it was a penalty, the ACA would be unconstitutional. Yeah, you'reRead More right...it's a penalty.
Ray Ray Johnson December 2, 2013 at 02:08 pm
Baaa, said the sheep. Change your W-4 for 2014 to have the govt withhold as little as possible.Read More Claim 20 dependents...whatever you have to do to mitigate your losses. because the law also states that the penalty or the delinquent premiums can be paid, in part or in full, by your tax refund. Thus, for poor families, the govt. has also taken steps to eliminate the earned income credit. I guess the upside to that is that there won't be any more $10k/yr non-tax payers getting $4k tax refunds, but its sure no upside for them. Simply don't put yourself in a position where you need or expect a refund; bring it home with you. How can ANYONE defend against the 'UN-Affordable Health Care Act?' Answer: You're not SUPPOSED to. This is designed to sink the listing ship and finish off the dollar. Only then can the NWO roll out the new electronic, biometric, all-seeing-eye currency with GPS and Supply Usage Monitoring as standard features. The purpose of Obamacare has nothing to do with insurance or health care. It's about the final step in closing the Ponzi scheme of the current reserve banking system.

The New World Order wants enough space to put its own marks on its own. But I assure you, the realRead More mark the are concerned with is the one that will be a biometric device on your hand or forehead which will track every breath you take, every cake you bake; they'll be watching you. And since a soldier signs over his will to the US Govt, a subsidiary and supporter of the New World Order, they will the first to be chipped. How ironic.
