  •  "steal" Really? (5+ / 0-)

    With public statements like that, you have not intention of seeking a deal. The asshat does this constantly!

    How can DC press and establishment expect a compromise? Moreover, why is onus on the POTUS to compromise with lunatics like this. It's not his fault the Republicans paint themselves in these ideological corners gleefully refusing to budge.

    •  And Tax Rates are Crazy Low (0+ / 0-)

      We just filed our taxes and could not believe how low our effective tax rate is with just standard middle class deductions. On 99k of income our Federal taxes were under 7k. I couldn't believe it. No wonder our government if having trouble paying the bills.

        That's how the conservatives plan to drive us back to the ignorant, small-mind/small-town 'Murica they themselves flee to DC to avoid living in.

        They still can't forgive FDR for letting all them intellectual know-it-alls into the country from Europe, even if some of them did end up giving us nuclear weapons.

        Even Tom Wolfe got hissy about that in From Bauhaus to Our House, so you can imagine the Barney Fife's and Goober's opinion of that invasion of 'smarts are good' people..,.
