    If that was true wouldn’t the answer be six?

    Naw, that answer is too close to the actual answer for a government worker…especially in the Obamanation’s empire.

    ‘How can you be so ruthless?’
    ‘You forget, my dear, I spent three years as a building contractor.’

    And he’ll report the result as 1 to the IRS.

    He’s got to recoup those campaign “donations” some way.

    Here is a fact check for you. The cut and paste link below this excerpt.

    The average income tax rate under Reagan in 1983 was 11.06 percent. Under Clinton in 1992, it was 9.18 percent. And under Obama in 2010, it was 4.68 percent.

    The verdict: For most Americans, taxes were lowered through the stimulus package passed in 2009 and extended to 2010, and they were also lowered in the tax compromise between Obama and Republicans. Current rates are at historic lows compared with ones from 1955 — when the numbers started being tracked — through 2007.

    Actually 2 + 2 does equal 5 for all large values of 2… but you would actually have had to pay attention in high school to know that.

    He didn’t say “government worker.” He said “independent government contractor.” That is a member of the private-sector workforce that sponges off government and brought to the nation by right-wingers who claim the private sector can do anything better than government, at a lesser cost and faster. Except design a webpage for the government that actually does the work it was paid to do.

    Oh, these are the same people who are running the hospitals, our schools, our everything else that used to be “Nationalised” in the UK.

    @ thehag

    Thank you for trying to educate these folks, but sadly, it’s a waste of time and energy with Tea Partiers such Charles Smith. Fox News and Limbaugh have made up his mind for him. Refusing to believe empirical evidence because it disproves their ideology is a common Tea Party trait.
