Loopholes? President keeps using the term "Loopholes" to describe his new round of tax increases as if corporations and individuals are somehow getting an unfair tax break that was unintended and accidently put into the current tax code. In fact what Obama is calling "Loopholes" are ligitimate deductions put in the tax code to allow deductions for things like depreciation and depletion in the case of oil companies. Obama claims the oil companies shouldn't get these deductions when they are actually a realistic approach to accounting for the declining value of a well's remaining productive life as the oil is pumped out.
Remember back when Obama said he was going to have Joe Biden go through the budget line by line and get rid of "All Government Waste?" Well apparently there wasn't any because since Obama took office spending is at an all time high.

Obama's Game Playing Is Wearing Thin

We all might as well be prepared for 4 more years of this BS. The Media isn't going to call Obama on his lies and deception so he's going to keep doing it. He has no shame and he cares nothing about the truth. He's going to the the same thing on Gun Control and Immigration Reform next so get ready for it.
I don't know why the Republicans don't use this oppotunity to force Obama to open up Federal Land and Offshore for drilling. The only solution to our fiscal problem is Economic Growth and the only avenue for real Economic Growth right now is domestic energy production. If we produce 100% of our own energy needs it will generate more than 10 million new, good paying jobs. It will bring in more than $200 Billion new dollars to the Treasury between new taxes being paid and royalties on productin. It will save more than $50 billion annually in unemployment benefits being paid out. Now is the time for Republicans to force the real issue, which is JOBS.
So now we know that neither Harkin or Obama understand how the economy works. Increasing the minimum wage does not provide more people with what they call a "Living Wage" it only make it harder for young workers to get their first job or someone needing a second job to get it. Growing the economy, which is totally foreign to Democrats, is the only way to increase people's pay checks. Supply and Demand sets the pay, not the President or Congress.

Liberals truly believe they know what's best for the rest of us. Unfortunately they are almost always wrong. All you have to do is look at how the Welfare System and the Educational System have failed as we have continued to throw more money at them. The same has been true with attempted Gun Control Measures which have yielded that exact opposite results of what was promised. Chicago is a killing ground after continually passing more restrictive gun control laws. So is Washington DC. Whether you're Black or White, Government cannot and will not take care of you.
So women don't know when they are being raped or aout to be raped eh? Well here's a good first clue. When some man you don't know comes up behind you and throws you to the ground and starts peeing your panties off there's a good chanc you're about to be raped. At that point pull the 38 Special revolver from your purse and empty it into him. Then and only then after you've pumped 6 rounds into his chest, consider if a more passive approach is the better alternative.
What does this mean? 5. If your life is in danger, passive resistance may be your best defense. 9. Understand that some actions on your part might lead to more harm. Arent' women here being told to just submit rather than fight back? Isn't this what most rapist count on? I can assure you most rapists are not prepared to be looking down the barrel of a 9mm or 45ACP. How is a woman to decide or is she supposed to do all the above at the same time? Kick off her shoes, start running and vomiting while willing herself to start her period, screaming "I have a Sexually Transmitted Disease."
This is nothing more than a free baby sitting service for poor people in order to get their votes. Teaching 4 year olds has always been and still should be the responsibility of parents but when parents are too lazy to work and too dumb to teach their kids, Barack will step in to see that they don't have to do either. With the exception of people who have physical or mental impairments most people below the 200% poverty level are there because they are too lazy to work. Rewarding it will only get more of the same.

I've lost count of Obama's lies but there are plenty of them. How about: I will cut the budget deficit in half during my first term? Instead they've more than doubled. The Stimulus will create 5 to 7 million new jobs? Less than 700,000 new jobs were created and mostly government jobs. We need a balanced approach to our budget problems which include spending cuts and more revenue. We got tax increases in January but now that it's time to cut spending hold on a minute. Not so fast. Obama = Biggest Liar in the History of US Presidents
We pay both Federal and State taxes on motor vehicle fuel to maintain roads and bridges. The fact that a significant amount of that money is wasted on excessive union contracts and corrupt politics. We will never be able to afford waste, fraud and corruption so we might as well get busy cleaning up our act.
