Dems: Tax cuts for middle class
But the super-rich have to pay more


Ineffective milquetoast Harry Reid is offering a bill that would cut taxes for most families
next year by about $1,500, paying for the cut by taxing income above $1 million.

The idea is to cut 2 percent of the working man's Social Security payroll taxes.
The new version offered Monday by Milquetoast Harry Reid would boost that figure
to 3.1 percent, or half the 6.2 percent payroll tax, for 2012.

The measure would give employers the same break on the first $5 million of their payrolls,
as well as waive the tax entirely on the first $12.5 million in payroll for new workers -- as an
incentive to spur hiring. They estimate it would benefit 98 percent of small businesses.

The tax cut would be paid for by slapping a 3.25 percent tax on adjusted
gross income above $1 million, which wouldn't kick in until 2013.

There he goes again - offering a plan that'll start to be paid for in the year 2013,
which means the super-rich has 15 months to figure a way to kill those taxes.

Why can't Democrats learn?

Subject: guitar players

It all depends on your criteria.  There are a ton of great guitar players out there
but at the end of the day, which one (or ten) move you the most? 

For me, no guitar players have ever moved me as much as Duane Allman and Jimmy Page. 
I still really enjoy a bunch of other players, too.  Why does everybody get all bent out of shape
over what someone else likes?

Andy, you are correct.

If someone told me Ted Nugget was the greatest guitar player in the world,
I wouldn't insult him but I would feel sorry for all the great music he was missing.

We need to remember that Rolling Store is a whore publication.
They aren't in the music news business, they're in the money-generating business.

They weren't trying to list the best guitar players, they were trying to incite controversy
by putting unqualified players in the "top ten."

Instead of "Top Ten" guitarists, they should've asked, "Who do you enjoy listening to the most?"

As someone who likes both Page and Allman, what is your opinion of their slide play?

I've heard Page's "In My Time of Dying" hundreds of times, especially live, and I really
enjoy his slide work and I consider that the zenith, but Snarky Stu (apparently - he's hard
to understand because he's a lawyer) seemed to suggest Allman's slide work makes Page
sound like, as Eddie Van halen put it, "a drunken retard with broken fingers."

Eddie must be a very small person to say something that stupid about his superior.

Someone else mentioned that "selling out stadiums doesn't mean you're good,"
which I would argue with because if you're not exciting, nobody will pay to see you.

In 1977, we had tickets number 81,xxx to see Zeppelin at the Superdome.

It was going to be the biggest single-band concert in history but Plant's son died

and that killed the tour and they never came to America again.

Maybe the best way for whore Rolling Stone to ask that question would've been:
"If you were broke and couldn't afford the ticket, which guitar player
  cause you to mow lawns all summer to
see him play live in concert?"

I believe Page's playing would inspire the most lawn cutting.

Subject: guitar players

I know they're not rock guitarists, and I doubt they've had much influence on any recent
rock guitarists, but two of the best damn guitarists I've ever seen are the Del Castillo Brothers.

The way they play makes you think invisible cloud beings are guiding their hands.

Political Ads Make you Stupid
by Marty Kaplan


By the time of the 2012 elections, some $3 billion of campaign commercials will have run on TV.
It'd be a new day for democracy if political ads were required to include a disclaimer:
"The scary music, PhotoShopped pictures and misleading sound bites in this ad are tricks
intended to manipulate you in ways of which you are not consciously aware. Voting for this
candidate is unlikely to improve how awful things are; hope can heartbreak."
Maybe on some other planet that will happen, but not this one.
In the absence of consumer warnings on political ads, we have five things to pin our hopes on.

"Hope can heartbreak?"

Sounds like a jab at Obama, and maybe that's well-deserved.

Years ago, I came up with a way to neatralize political ads and it solves a lot of problems:

The solution?
Your opponent gets the last third of your ad - for rebuttal.

So, if BIG OIL or the NRA spent one billion dollars on "Obama is a nigger Muslin" ads,
the White House would always have the last 20 seconds of every minute to say,
"That is complete horseshit," and then show his birth certificate.

It wouldn't matter if B
IG OIL or the NRA spent TWO billion dollars to lie.

It wouldn't matter if B
IG OIL or the NRA spent TEN billion dollars to lie.

CNN is FOX with smaller balls


Time and time again the neocons were proven spectacularly and tragically wrong.
Remember "We'll be welcomed as liberators"? Or the claim that Iraq will be a "cakewalk"?

Nobody has believed a word they've said since 2005.
Nowhere on Earth are their words given an ounce of credence.
Nowhere, that is, except CNN.

We haven't seen national security commentary with so little credibility
since Judith Miller interviewed "Curveball."

People are understandably outraged by CNN's ideological extremism, and by its willingness
to discard even the thinnest veneer of journalistic objectivity. But there's another cloud over
this panel: a cloud of scandals, criminal investigations, and ethical lapses.

David Addington. Paul Wolfowitz. Ed Meese.
It's a Rogue's Gallery of government officials gone wild, a motley crew
of the short-sighted, the benighted, and the nearly-indicted.

Or, as CNN calls them, "experts."

CNN knows the money is bigger when you play ball with the GOP.
The Dems don't have the brains or the balls to fight so CNN follows the aggresor.

If you cross the GOP, there's hell to pay.  But if you cross Obama,
he''ll invite you to dinner and tell you, "I understand, it's just politics."

We haven't seen a Democrat fight back since 1996 and I,
for one, am tired of playing for the Party of Surrender.

Feds want Bradley Manning's Head
Did they catch him smoking pot while playing poker?


The civilian lawyer for Bradley Manning is seeking to question the severity of the leak
by requesting the government's own internal damage assessments that reportedly contradict
statements that Manning irreparably damaged national security.
Manning's defense attorney, David E. Coombs, is attempting to get evidence from the government
to defend Manning in his upcoming pre-trial hearing on Dec. 16, but says the government is stonewalling him.
"The defense has repeatedly requested the below discovery in this case, but the government has consistently
responded with a blanket denial of the defense request," Coombs wrote in the partially redacted filing.

I forget - what did Bradley Manning do?

Did he push many millions of families out of their homes?
Did he cause tens of millions of people to lose their jobs?
Did he steal the life savings of 1/3 of American families?
Did he send twenty million kids to bed without enough to eat?

No, that was the Banksters of Wall Street - and how are they doing?

So, the bastards who stole all those trillions get government protection,
and the whistle-blower is having evidence withheld from his legal team?

I'm so old, I remember when America was great.

Gov. Brokeback attacks KS teen
She tweeted, Gov narc'd to her principal


A Kansas teenager is in trouble after mocking Gov. Sam Brownback
during a mock legislative assembly for high school students.
Emma Sullivan, a senior at Shawnee High School, was in Topeka on Monday as part
of Kansas Youth in Government, a program for students interested in politics and government.
During the session, in which Brownback addressed the group, Sullivan posted on Twitter:
“Just made mean comments at gov brownback and told him he sucked, in person #heblowsalot”
On Tuesday, Sullivan was called to her principal’s office and told that the tweet had been
flagged by Brownback’s staff and reported to organizers of the Youth in Government program.

Looks like Emma is getting a crash course on how Nazi scumbags operate in today's Amerikkka.
If you have an opinion the GOP doesn't like, you will be "flagged and reported."

Why do they always go after helpless little girls who can't fight back?
I've been trying to get someone to fuck with me since 1996 and I can't find any takers.

Sullivan said the principal ordered her to write letters of apology to Brokeback,
the school’s Youth in Government sponsor, the district’s social studies coordinator and others.

Goddammit, why can't I get someone to order ME to write an apology?
I'll write an apology that'll make Mark Twain sound like a nun, trust me.

Maybe Brokeback should send some goons with pepper spray to Emma's house and teach her
what happens to young girls who dare to have an opinion about the biggest asshole in her state.

Obama Renegs on Pot Pledge


The Obama administration has been a disappointment in some ways, but by far the worst of its
actions concern medical marijuana. What the federal government is doing now is nothing short
of cruel and unfair, not to mention a gross waste of taxpayer dollars. It began with aggressive raids
last March on legal Montana producers and providers who had been working to help worthy patients,
and now has escalated to become a national scandal.
As a physician, I have issued more than 400 recommendations to patients who have benefited greatly
from the use of medical marijuana. It seems to me that we are seeing the fruits either of colossal
ineptitude on the part of Obama’s appointees or, much worse, an unconscionable double-cross that
essentially amounts to deliberate entrapment by the government of good, law-abiding citizens.

Obama Backstabs Pot Community
Unlike Cali, Montana didn't get any warning


In October, the feds gave California dispensaries 45 days notice to shut down. In contrast,
the Montanans — all registered with the State — got zero warning of Obama's hissy fit.

They had been judged as legal businesses, but unlike their California counterparts,
they didn't get any notice that Obama was about to suddenly reverse policy.


The federal government is now prosecuting these local businessmen.


Indeed, some of those being targeted by Obama had maintained continuous and close
relations with local law enforcement. They had no interest in breaking the law. Instead,
taxpayers are now funding a DEA witch hunt that targets them in direct contradiction
to Obama's promises both as a candidate and in his initial policy actions once in office.

That seems like entrapment to me.
They were legally empowered by the state of Montana to sell medical pot,
yet the feds scooped in to bust everybody and make a big stink about nothing.

Why give California stores 45 days notice,
then bust Montana sellers with no notice at all?

Why can't Obama worry a little more about terrorists and creating jobs
instead of using so much time, money and energy to attack pot and poker?

Why can't Democrats learn?
