Jezzabella - If everyone does not pay, then the tax is not fair, by any definition. We aren't talking deductions here. We are talking 0% taxation. If everyone does not participate, then there is no incentive to elect anyone not offering even more freebies. It is cruel to trap people in poverty by writing them a check. 3 weeks ago
It certainly isn't a "fair" tax if there is a built in loophole for the poor. How many more loopholes will find there way in? This also does not cover state, county and municipal taxes. How exactly will raising the price of everything we buy bring jobs back? There are states that do not have a sales tax. Who would collect the funds. And, of course, who will buy something new when used is at least 22% less? Lets not even start on the huge increase in black market sales. Of course we will need the IRS to supervise all this activity and to investigate the fraud. No thanks!3 weeks ago
Maybe the solution is to stop spending money we don't have an quit moaning about what corporations legally pay in taxes. I don't hear any moaning when rich left wingers use the same loopholes.3 weeks ago
Venter #2 Nice try, but the sequester is an Obama plan and passed by democrats. Notice that it is the republican controlled house that is trying to end this stupidity by the president. The president is deliberately choosing to harm Americans rather than reduce the tremendous waste of our money.
Venter #8 Why are taxpayers expected to pay every time a woman spreads her legs? Seems rather wasteful that we have to pay for free birth control AND prenatal care.2 months ago
I guess they are only considered "radicals" if you don't agree with them. 2 months ago
When gun control laws are written to prevent criminals and wackos from getting guns, i will consider supporting them. These laws only make it more difficult and expensive to protect yourself.

So it is alright to take a matter to court in order to force your sense of morality on everyone, but wrong to adhere to morality that has existed for centuries. your live and let live slogan is laughable under the circumstances.3 months ago
Hey rockinroller: Assault weapons have been illegal since the 1930s. You have to have a federal firearms license to own one. What you ignorantly call an assault weapon (anything that looks scary) kills fewer people than most any other weapon. You want to stop a lot of killing - get rid of peer review for doctors. There is some real carnage there.3 months ago
#1 Sorry to hear that.
#2 You are obviously one of the many that criticize every conservative without ever listening to them. Your ignorance is showing.
#3 If Mark actually believed the gun control pap he spreads, his conscience should have stopped him.
#4 We are still spending more than last year in spite of the sequester. So what cuts are necessary? Only the politically expedient ones.
#5 Most government workers could have their hours cut 100% without a loss of productivity.
#7 You could save more lives in a number of ways that don't involve violating their oath of office.
#8 A recall for political purposes does us all an injustice. Would a different sheriff get away with ignoring the law?
#9 I have no problem with enforcing traffic laws, but a lot more could be gained by instituting open and honest accounting of city funds. 3 months ago
In case no one has noticed, the budget for this year is larger than last year, in spite of the sequester. That tells me that we are being played, successfully it seems. Any cuts being made are for Obama agenda and nothing else.3 months ago
