    And that “something” is he’s outlived his relevance!

    The Arizona Republican electors were complaining about Obama not having a birth certificate just two days ago, so some of these fake issues will never die.

    “…where’s lobbyists?” Who do you think drew up the list?

    Let me tell you how it will be
    There’s one for you, nineteen for me
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

    Should five per cent appear too small
    Be thankful I don’t take it all
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

    If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
    If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
    If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
    If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

    Don’t ask me what I want it for
    If you don’t want to pay some more
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

    Now my advice for those who die
    Declare the pennies on your eyes
    ‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
    And you’re working for no one but me

    This needs to be retitled as “Hail to The Chief”.

    The GOP hated Clinton, too. Republicans just feel entitled to be in power forever. When poor white men and black men get in the way, they lose their mind.

    And we have far less taxes (especially on our wealthy) than do the Northern European Countries. However, by just about any standard, they have a much higher standard of living than we do. How can that be, why are not their people in total revolt over this??

    Also, the US Constitution (which conservatives are always fond of saying that they are the chief defenders of) gives the Congress the power to tax the citizens of the US in any way, amount , or manner that it pleases them to do. Or don’t you even bother to read the document?

    SO, argue just how those taxes are spent all you wish, but get off of the anti federal tax wagon, as it makes you stand against the very Constitution of this country, and that is as anti American as you can get!!

    @Robert Landers

    By the way, just so you do not think that I can not name my sources:

    US Constitution, Section 8, Article 1:

    “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;”

    And that is not even an amendment, it IS an actual part of the original Constitution!!!

    @Robert Landers

    I like the part saying, “shall be uniform”. Have we gotten away from that?

    I do believe the federal tax laws are the same for every state.
    Do you have evidence that some states get preferential treatment?
    If not, then just what are you implying?

    When a republican organization sent out fliers for a fundraiser with fried chicken, watermelon and kool laid emblams on it was that playing the race card? When people at tea party events had pictures of the President on a monkeys body was that playing the race card? When a poll released recently showed 48% of republicans admitting they had a problem with the president being black was that playing the race card? Try entering the relm of reality with the rest of us. I am white therefor racists think they can spew any bull they want in my presence. Racism is alive and well in America because I hear this stuff daily. You know usually the only people making the complaints you are is because..well… you are racist

    It is an inconvenient fact that ever since Reagan was elected, under Republican Presidents, deficits went WAY up. If we look at actual data for the US debt at the end of every fiscal year (not corrected for inflation), Reagan came into office with a $1 trillion debt. It rose to $4.4 trillion under Reagan + HW Bush. It rose to only $5.8 trillion under Clinton. And it rose to $11.9 trillion under W Bush.

    I’m not defending Obama’s debt. I’m just pointing out that between Jimmy Carter leaving office and Obama coming in, the debt rose by $10.9 trillion, and only $1.4 trillion of that came from a Democratic President. This is a fact.

    I do not think so as the IRS seems to do a very good job of taxing for the federal government in all states. I would think that you would pay as much in federal taxes in California as you would in Alabama.

    I do not think that even ultra conservatives would consider that an issue with federal taxation.
