When George Bush got his tax cuts. After that every unfunded mandate became an illegitimate child, a ward of the state, as progressiveswe can no longer afford George Bush's illegitimate children. For that matter, neither can the Republicans.

In Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, Georgia and probably some other states now under GOP control there are efforts to end same-day voter registration. Generally, the opinion seems to be that Republicans simply want to make it harder to vote, apparently believing that GOP voters are more dedicated and will show up at the polls whatever barriers are erected.

It's clear to me that both the Democrats and Republicans act the same on the big issues, The answer is to fire BOTH the Democrats AND Republicans.
It's only the smaller issues that they fuss over during elections. They each have about half the seats in the House and Senate so they are deadlocked when it comes to doing anything useful.
Is this the begining of the end for News Corp? Oh I sure hope so.
Thom mentioned the American dead from the Vietnam conflict, I feel the two and one half million dead Vietnamese should be mentioned as well, their lives being no less precious than our own.

While making a comment to stymie's recent blog entry it occurred to me that someone ought to make clear whether Social Security is off or on budget. Congress ruled that Social Security assets or payments should not be included in the actual budget, that they should be off budget, but by some deceptive exercise they are allowed to be included in what is called a “unified” budget.
It may sound counter intuitive but raising taxes on businesses would increase hiring at both small and large businesses because they are growth junkies and want to invest in them so that they can sell them and pay capital gains rates on them. Most of the jobs are created by businesses that have 35 or fewer employees, and are subchapter S companies, which the owners pay taxes at the same tax rate as you and I, around 1969 levels.
Can anyone see the dollar signs in Republican eye's when they speak of untapped minerals in Afghanistan? Pay attention, they are there. Could this possibly mean (based on Republican Treachery of the past) that the Republicans could be collaborating with the Taliban as we speak in order to keep the war going so they can win the 2012 Elections? Please respond and let me know.
