    Well, I think Nancy Pelosi will make a wonderful President.

    “Vladimir Lenin, one of the inventors of communism, famously said “The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.”

    And who is this bourgeoisie that Lenin hates so much? It translates as the middle class!" (With thanks to Richard Daughty
    The Mogambu Guru)

    Sound familiar?

    Anyone who thinks that intransigence belongs to one party only is willfully ignorant. The fact that Republicans want cuts in Medicare and Social Security, which we all contribute to in preparation for the future, but will not even consider cuts to programs that even the Pentagon never wanted should provide balance to Mr. Asay’s cartoon.

    But, as a very long-time friend said to me, “You see what you want to see.”

    “…Medicare and Social Security, which we all contribute to in preparation for the future…”

    No, we contribute to them to pay for the current costs. Our kids and grandkids will contribute to take care of our future, but I don’t really expect that to happen. All Ponzi schemes fail sooner or later.

    “I am reading a book called “Early Modern France 1560-1715,” by Robin Biggs.

    The parallels with today are too numerous to list, but the general gist — and this book was not written with the intention of turning up “parallels” (it was written in 1977) — is that the landed elite in the 16th and 17th centuries used debt, foreclosure, high prices, and levies to steal mercilessly from the peasantry and keep them poor and under heel.

    The story of the 1% did not suddenly materialize when Reagan/Thatcher took the wheel. No matter what period in history you read, the rich have no compunction whatsoever about brutalizing and impoverishing the poor. It is how the rich get and stay rich."

    Yes, Obama has told this lie so long, people believe him. He got his Tax Hike, now he does not want to keep his end of the deal and cit spending.

    Oh, Why is Harry Reid refusing to allow The Senate to read and vote on Bills passed by The House? The Democrat Senate is the Road Block.

    Obama is the Road Block as he vowed to Veto any Bill that alters the Sequester allowing him to decide where Budget Cuts should be made.

    Yes, Obama is excellent at blaming Republicans for Harry Reid’s failure to do his job and Obama does not want to show he’s a true leader and is not afraid to make the tough budget cuts to save our sinking ship.

    Chuck, you’re confusing Republiclan hospitality for hospitality in general.

    @Tigger

    Of course, you conveniently forget how one Senator (generally Republican) can stop anything with only the threat of a filibuster. I will fault Reid for believing that McConnell was going to be reasonable about filibuster reform. Turtleman is a traitor to the country and can only be expected to stab the middle class in the stomach every time.

    Medicare and Social Security would have been vastly better funded had not presidents/congresses from the 1960s forward raided the cookie jar to pay for wars. Let’s look at how we benefitted from Viet Nam, Grenada, Gulf Wars I and II. I’d say the money would have been better left in the cookie jar…

    Hey, but who wants to raise taxes to pay for wars? Better to give a tax cut while costs go up exponentially….

    Bourgeois is the ruling class, the middle class is actually referenced as the group that would overturn bourgeois rule as they would no longer be needed.

    Meanwhile the USA has

    . Lowest tax rate (after deductions) in the western world
    . lower tax rate than most of developing world once corruption is considered ( paying 50k to the police department annually may not be a tax but is still not a source of joy

    I read the Toons and I read the comments. i cannot help but wonder… Does anybody really know whats happening?
    two “sides” are blaming each other. Logic tells me that both are wrong somewhere. It also tells me that both are right somewhere. That may be my problem. I’m trying to utilize logic.

    America has no problems that could not be solved by giving more tax breaks to the rich.
