John: 'they want to raise taxes, but let the Bush tax cuts expire.' Why does everybody call them the 'Bush tax cuts?' On Day One, they were tax cuts, now they are the 'Bush Tax Rates' and they have been for a very long time. Bush cut taxes and established NEW Tax Rates for all income earners, for poor people, rich people and everybody in the middle. When they expire and IF Obama gets his wish we will return to the Clinton tax rates or will we call them the Cinton tax increases? I think we both know they will not be called the Obama tax rates.

Don, great point. This has bothered me for awhile too. How far do you go back to establish the norm? One could argue these are Bush tax cuts if Reagan is the norm.

Easy one . They the lefties rely on the simple minded to fall for the media(9 out of 10) telling them it is Bush's fault they are without a job but they the lefties will take care of them . Rent paid ,phone paid with free min.s included,food paid via food cards,etc. Freedom , who needs freedom when they have the Gov. All of that will come to an end just as it has with the USSR,Cuba,Korea and the list is long. Look to the EU. Greese,Spain,Itlay,UK. Its coming to the USA . Maybe not this year or next but it will happen . The Julies of the USA just don't know any better.

Only Democrats, with the complicity of the media, can get away with calling "tax CUTS" evil.
Oh, there's also the little thing about so many Obama supporters don't pay taxes anyway. Why should they care if others get a tax cut?

The common stock of the New York Times (NYSE: NYT) plunged from $10.87 last week to a close of $8.19 on Friday after the liberal mouthpiece announced that its 3rd quarter net income dropped 85 percent.

While analysts are blaming soft advertising revenues, I think something more ominous is happening at America’s national, bleeding-heart newspaper.

(Editor's note: I'm taking a few days off. I'll see you guys again on Tuesday with a crop of Email and Hate Mail)

For sure, advertising revenues are dropping nationally as economic conditions have deteriorated over the last two quarters.
