Could those in the circling GOP lifeboats at least acknowledge that it was Capt Bush and the NeoCon Crew who were manning the Empire when it hit the iceberg instead of trying to call room service for more ice. Maybe then the GOP would start getting a bit of respect.

I had an ex-wife like you. Used that same logic. She lost everything in the settlement. And the second one, and the third one.

so, as usual you don't comment on the thread at hand. which, btw, is what you accuse the democrats of.

I think it's very good that they pay their fair share of taxes.


some offshore companies pay a net tax rate of 2 percent.

is that fair milfie?

or throwing the age old Repgnicant arguments out more important?

oh, you're ready to pay the fair share that those companies aren't paying?

They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Right now I am still waiting. Maybe you can bypass the system and help a brother out.


Why would you want an Escalade that only makes right turns and 'interrogates' pedestrians in front of every church you happen to pass by.........?

And Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (Ken.) said later on Monday that he could not endorse Obama's plan since it "gives preferential treatment to foreign companies at the expense of U.S.-based companies."
?

What kind of GOP-think is this? Whether or not foreign companies receive ‘preferential treatment’ has nothing to do with US companies not paying their fair share of tax.
