The Most Outrageous Tax Loopholes

"dues are still tax-deductible" If union dues are mandatory, as they are in many states, as a precondition for being able to work, then, as I see it, they should be deductable. In a right-to-work state, where one has the choice of whether or not to pay to support something, that might be another story.
Dear Winnie, I realize that you never like to let facts interfere with an unfounded opinion, but let's look at the Congressional votes: Authorization for the action in Afghanistan: House of Representatives were: 420 Ayes, 1 Nay and 10 Not Voting. The totals in the Senate were: 98 Ayes, 0 Nays, 2 Present/Not Voting Authorization for the action in Afghanistan: House of Representatives were: 297 Ayes,133 Nay and 3 Not Voting. The totals in the Senate were: 77 Ayes, 23 Nays, 0 Present/Not Voting By the way, what were the votes for our action in Libya?

Mitt's Hat Trick

Dear mipso54, I do see your point and understand your position, but I fear that the bitterness that I see between the candidates is doing Obama's work for him. The negative ads could be instilling negative perceptions in the minds of voters, both conservative, but more importantly, independent voters. If I saw more campaigning on the candidates' strengths, rather than attacking the other candidates' weaknesses, I would agree with you. I guess I have taken to heart the Gipper's 11th commandment, "Thou shall not speak ill of a fellow Republican." I understand, your mileage may vary.

Dear TaxFree1031, While you may have some valid points, with which I will not disagree, it is apparent that Romney will represent the Republicans in the 2012 election. While he may not be, at least in my opinion, the ideal candidate, ther is one thing I have to say on his behalf. This one thing alone has earned my vote. He ain't Obama. The central thing we all must remember is that Obama must be defeated at all costs. Without the fear of facing another election, his campaign against America and Americans wil be unfettered. I fear that our great nation cannot survive four more years of this administration. If voting for Romney is the only way to stop Obama, then that is the price we should be willing to pay.

Dupes for the State

If I may provide one more (sick) example to further prove your point, Dr. Williams. Back in 2005, there was a lawsuit which claimed that McDonald’s was responsible for the weight, girth and health of two named teenagers and countless “other similarly situated persons.” Even after the suit was dismissed twice, a federal appeals court reinstated the case a third time (only to be thrown out again).
To back up your point even further, Michael, the House vote was 219-212. Not a "strong majority." "Delusional" might be to genteel a word, however. That would imply that he doesn't know or understand the truth. I think he knows, but he prefers to lie.
Birdman, If I may, I respectfully disagree with your statement, " I wouldn't even lay it down as a birdcage liner." Why shouldn't it be used as birdcage liner? It would just get more filled up with the same stuf it is full of now, except that it would be of the avian variety, rather than the bovine. ;-)

Sarah Palin's Pick for VP: Allen West

Sarah " He called Representative and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz " 'the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives.' " Well, at least we know that West tells the truth and tell it like it is. That is more than we can say for the current POTUS: "The police acted stupidly." He could be my son." (Does Michelle know?) "Ultimately I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress." (actual house vote, 219-212)
I see it now, all "critical services" in the US run with the efficiency of the Post Office and the DMV. What a utopia.
