    "Walt Bernard"s comment was unusual in a way,

    "Romney's 47% remark referred to the percent of citizens who don't pay income tax, currently an obsession on the kosher right."



    "Kosher" right?

    Hmmmm.

    He probably accidentally chose that word

    I think the anger is somewhat misdirected. A life completely dependent upon charity is an absolutely pitiable state.

    The anger should be directed at the state -- a bunch of sociopaths buying their re-election through extortion, engineered dependency, and ruined lives. Keep in mind that they wouldn't have it any other way, and will be happier when more are utterly dependent, creating more power for themselves.

    The state cannot help itself -- when you base an institution on fundamentally immoral principles (theft is legitimate, etc.) and then empower it, guess what happens?

    I think you should take that up with Walt Bernard, not the author of the article.

    Nah, I like it this way. We often comment on the comments in case you never noticed.

    The 47% are the people who Romney knows will vote Democrat regardless of his message. He was pointing out it doesn't make sense to use up limited resources trying to draw them to the GOP.

    It is the left that is obsessing over the 47% comment.

    The 47% is referring to the non tax paying portion, of which many were put out of a job due to the low wages paid in China.

    The middle class is responsible for those jobs being sent to China.
    The billionaires are going to grow jobs in the U.S.A.

  12. What a bunch of bull****. I EXPECT the government to uphold it's end of the bargain when I retire in four years. My wife and I have watched funds being confiscated for the past 40 years of our working lives. We have lived within our means. We have put three children through high end college education with zero help from state. We live modestly, pay our bills and our taxes and now are defined as "rich" by our government. I demand to be paid back with the promise of their confiscation. If YOU don't like it, tough ****.

    You have no right to anyone else's money. Screw you. And screw everything you think in supposing that people are going to just say, "Yah su missa boss man" and quietly do as they are told and just shuffle off to the sidewalk and get out of the way of whiners like you who cower in fear that they won't be able to keep their lifestyle. Tough. Very happily this is not the Twilight Zone where people like you are in control telling everyone else what will and will not be done. Very happily "we the people" are in control deciding together what will and will not be done. You can scream. Go right ahead and scream. You can whine. Go right ahead and whine. Maybe someone will pass you a tissue. Maybe not. Use your sleeve. In the meantime (what an apt phrase... "meantime) "We the people" will go right ahead and act in our own best interest. If that doesn't float your boat... if that fries your grits... etc., then get over it. The majority rules. That's the way it should be. That's the way it is. Power to the people. Very cool.

    Well, if he's already paid into it, at a minimum he should be given his money back, adjusted for inflation and possibly a few points on it as well.

    He didn't pay into anything. He was taxed. The money was spent. No different than any other tax.
