I've found that the best way to make a political point is an intemperate incoherent rant that never mentions (or links to) the specific topic I'm ranting about.

YMMV.

So per usual that's 50 million a year? One third of an F-35? The plane we don't need? Or some of those billions in other weapons Congress shoved down the Pentagon's throat this December in their authorization bill? Oh or better yet? Saving the fishies of Alaska tacked onto the "Save the poor victims of Superstorm Sandy and help win my re-election" Bill?

Yeah I'm going to hand-ring over something else.... any thing else more than likely.

I thought the OP was going to post about Goldman Sachs given the number he chose.

You do realize that Iraq and Afghanistan were/are actually occupations, not wars, right? You do understand there were almost 1,000 documented false statements issued by the Bush Administration [more than 200 by 43 himself] leading up to the invasion of Iraq, right?

OP, where were you when Democrats offered 10 to 1 in Spending cuts vs. new revenue [taxes.]

Just say no to ignorant, deceitful rhetoric.

"Think! It's very patriotic!"

Your taxes didn't go up. They just went back to where they were two years ago before Obama and the democrats passed a temporary tax cut on SS to boost the economy. Conservatives were never in favor of it.

And with that argument, there is no reason to make any further points.

I don't think that was snark. I think Raz really does live on the tears of wingnuts.

Funny how putting payroll taxes back to previous levels is not an increase

But letting the current tax rates expire was going to be an increase

What is real funny is seeing all these low info voters be surprised when their checks get smaller

Read what you just wrote and see if you can figure out the incredibly stupid mistake you just made. If not, say so and I'll be glad to point it out to you.

Just throw money at it.
