    Obama will be raising taxes on anybody who has a decent paying job (in the 40K range and up) ...

    he calls it expiring the Bush tax cuts ... semantics for a tax hike. Just look at the rates yourself (and the organization who produced this information has been getting heat and pressure from the Obama campaign for exposing this).

    Taxes under Clinton 1999
    Single making 30K - tax $8,400
    Single making 50K - tax $14,000
    Single making 75K - tax $23,250
    Married making 60K - tax $16,800
    Married making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 125K - tax $38,750

    Taxes under Bush 2008
    Single making 30K -- tax $4,500
    Single making 50K - tax $12,500
    Single making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 60K - tax $9,000
    Married making 75K - tax $18,750
    Married making 125K - tax $31,250

    [QUOTE=JCnflies;2829906]Did you feel that way wit the Sarah palin interviews with Katie Couric and Charles Gibson? If so, that's fair.[/QUOTE]

    I don't need to be fair....


    anyway, these are two different circumstances..one is an interview with Palin who was asked questioned designed to display either her knowledge or lack thereof...fair or not, they were pretty straightforward.

    In Obama's case, we have a clip from a radio interview from 2001 being distorted. People moving words around like what he said he considered a tragedy (civil rights movement being court focused) and what people are making it sound like he is saying was a tragedy (lack of redistributive change).


    We have Palin and McCain using this edited clip incorrectly and basically either lying or just being very poor listeners.

    Where was the distortion in the Couric and Gibson interviews.

    [QUOTE=sackdance;2827184]It's just Barack Obama talking candidly about his radical beliefs - about how America is, essentially, constrained by its founding fathers and how social change can be instituted a lot faster by legislative means as opposed to merely judicial. What was Obama again? Oh, yeah, a civil rights activist lawyer. [B]This guy is on a mission, a moronic destructive mission and willing to disregard everything that's made America the greatest country in the world. (And I stand by the 'greatest' label.) [/B][/QUOTE]

    Are you describing Obama, McCain, Palin, Biden or Bush? Cause it fits all them equally..

    This country in it's entirety is so far removed from what made it great is scary..

    [QUOTE=AlbanyJet;2829599]Outsourcing? Did you say outsourcing?

    US corporations under Barack Obama aren't simply going to outsource.

    THEY'RE GOING TO LEAVE THE USA!!! Dubai, China, Mexico, India.

    Similar to Roosevelt during the Great Depression. Only back then the rich company owners simply closed their doors and laid off all of the workers. This time the companies will simply relocate overseas - and lay off all the workers here in the US!

    :jets18[/QUOTE]

    Whats the difference between that and the outsourcing/sell to foreigners plan we are on now?

    Dude it's over. We've been done in by our own excesses...
