The majority speaks..again.

Tony Aguire said:

Dear Republicans, get your party in order, or it will be gone. Obstructionist policies, hateful rhetoric, inflammatory lies, and fear mongering are not working in your favor anymore...time to get a grip and be "reborn".

Thus proving, as if we needed ANY whatsoever after Obama's re-election, that we have now officially entered a period where the majority of voting Americans:

1) feel it is correct, moral and right to forcibly take money from others for their own benefit
2) are economic illiterates
3) Have no grasp of facts or reality. It is well documented, by that paragon of "right wing" journalism Bob Woodward, that it was OBAMA that didn't compromise a bit in 2011... Boehner had a compromise all lined up that Obama rejected at the last minute, thus prompting all this latest "crisis"

Ergo, the majority of Americans are now officially and demonstrably idiots. They believe they can keep on getting freebies from "uncle sugar" while the wheels fall off

Again, I'll say it one more time. Republicans should simply rubber stamp EVERYTHING the democraps want by voting present...

The wheels ARE coming off, and that way the correct party gets the blame.

Obama and the Democrats own this mess due to their class warfare BS. Screw em.

How Tax Increases Will Work For America

Posted By Dave Wagner

Dave Snope said:

They'll follow the example set by California just after passing new Prop 30 tax increases to deal with the state budget shortfall. Raise taxes, spend more than you're getting, growing the deficit while actual revenues decline as more people and businesses leave.

Passage of Proposition 30 set off euphoria and expectations of higher spending for public employees. The California Teachers’ Association (CTA) trumpeted: "California students and working families won a clear victory today as voters clearly demonstrated their willingness to invest in our public schools and colleges and also rejected a deceptive ballot measure aimed at silencing educators, other workers and their unions.�

State bureaucrats immediately ramped up deficit spending far beyond the state's $6 billion annual tax increase, with the Departments of Health Services and Developmental Services increasing this month’s spending by over $1 billion versus last year. The lower tax collection and higher spending drove the State’s deficit after the tax increase to $2.7 billion for the first 5 months of this fiscal year. State Controller John Chiang reported:

November's disappointing revenues stand in stark contrast to recent news that California is leading the nation in job growth, has significantly improved its cash liquidity to pay bills, and even long-distressed home values are starting to inch upward... This serves as a sobering reminder that, while the economy is expanding, it is doing so at a slow and uneven pace that will require the State to exercise care and discipline in how its fiscal affairs are managed in the coming year.

The improved “cash liquidity� Chiang referred to turns out to be $24.9 billion of debt.

About that so-called nation-leading job growth: It isn't coming from actual tax-paying private industry, it's coming from tax-eating government job growth.


Hopefully, he'll pull a "Chavez" sooner rather than later

A shopping mall - 2 dead - 1 POS dead

A school of 6 years olds "protected" by well meaning brave women without weapons - 26 people and one POS dead

Same assholes shooting - 2 totally different results

And now a word from the Mayor of the safest city .

Herb York said:

.... in the USA

They have the strongest gun controls in the USA

The mayor doesn't go anywhere without well armed guards including assault rifles but YOU don't need any.

And more have died in gun violence in the last few weeks there than all in that school in Connecticut... and more the weeks before that, and before that...

Australia's Success from Banning Assault Weapons

Posted By Dave Wagner

Alan French said:

Note that Australia's response to a mass shooting was a much stricter ban on assault weapons than we had here from 1994 to 2004. It also worked.

Clear skies, Alan

We don't live in Australia. Have you considered emigration?
