    So you got a new car with your stock “earnings” (which are technically “unearnings”) and will have enough money in the bank when you retire to have your capital gains taxed from deferred investments, and you’re LOSING?
    .
    Do you want some cheese with that whine?

    I do not see the concern over debt. Dick Cheney said that Reagan proved that deficits do not mean anything. Ronald left the legacy of completely out of control fiscal policy that every president except Clinton has fed upon with increased vigor. Obama is the latest version of the Reagan madness.

    Let’s all thank President Obama for making 99.6 percent of President Bush’s tax cuts permanent. But didn’t the left say the Bush tax cuts are bad. How can that be when the left also says Obama is Good.

    Nice try and Obama racked up a debt higher than all the other presidents in the last 40 years combined and he did it in 4 years.

    “I did do pretty good on the stock market yesterday, enough to buy a new car.”

    It’s not profit until you sell. Odds are this little feel good rally will correct, people will take profits and your “gains” will diminish…

    “Nice try and Obama racked up a debt higher than all the other presidents in the last 40 years combined and he did it in 4 years.”

    Zoid, facts matter. The latest debt figure is $16.4 trillion. W Bush’s last budget period ended in Sep 2009 and the debt was $11.9 trillion.

    But since you are pointing fingers, W Bush came in with a $5.9 trillion debt (as of Sep 2001) and left with an $11.9 trillion debt (as of Sep 2009). HE REALLY DID RACK UP MORE DEBT THAN ALL OF PAST PRESIDENTS COMBINED.

    And wasn’t a huge part of the debt on President Obama’s watch putting the shrubster and cheney unbudgeted wars on the budget where it belonged when shrubster and cheney declared the war, with the help of congress, and the lies they told to congress?

    Oh, yeah, wasn’t the war in Iraq supposed to pay for itself?

    Okay, shrubster and cheney, where’s that income?

    Isn’t stating that America loses, but you made a killing on the Stock Market some kind of contradiction in terminology?

    And when you retire if you are an ordinary middle class worker who will not be rich, depending at least somewhat on social security, you will be taxed less not more. Perhaps even joining the 47% that no longer have to even pay federal taxes at all.

    If you are anywhere near as wealthy as you seem to like everybody here to think you are, when you retire your income will not be taxed anymore than it is now!

    Do you actually think that the wealthy are going ot give up all their tax loopholes? If so, then perhaps you deserve to pay higher taxes!

    Do “dittoheads” ever get ANY information other than that fed to them by Rush and the rest of the moron endowed? Bush’s last budget ended in October, 2009. Most of that $16 trillion debt was rung up on Republican (tax relief) charge accounts. Granted, the waste in defense is shared across most all Congressional districts, like the F-22 and F-35, but Congress won’t throw in the towel on these loser programs that beat the “you know what” out of the economy, and the taxpayers (who AREN’T getting dividends from defense contractors.)
