“Yet you continue to be a mindless cheerleader for policies designed to allow to corporations to avoid paying taxes. You complain about how hard it is for the middle class yet endorse the policies that are squeezing them to death. Do a little research about where your tax money goes, and you'll see that you are paying exponentially more to oil companies than to 'welfare cheats'. it aint the bums in the bus station that tanked the economy. It's your heroes in the 1% that are sticking it to you, yet you don't seem to mind that.”

“Reagan had a positive effect if you are really rich. his economic policies were a disaster overall for the US. You're seeing Reagans version of America in action. How does it look?”

“LOL, Reagan has been dead longer than the Messiah has been in office and you're still blaming him?”

“Agreed. But the super rich aren't. And they are in no danger of becoming poor. Hiding trillions in the caymans and avoiding paying taxes is not some kind of imposition on them. Its their duty. Its mind boggling you'd cheer for them while they sticking it to you. Guess what, its not the government you should be mad at. Wakeup.”

PapaTim41 on Jun 29, 2014 at 14:58:04

“LOL, I'm not "cheering" for anyone. My point is, the government makes the rules, right? Why is it so wrong for the rich to play the system under those rules,and pay less tax, than it is for the poor to play the system and pay NO tax? I would feel better if we went to a flat tax with everyone paying the same percentage.
This country was founded on the principle of everyone pulling their own weight, but lately, the working middle class is doing all of the pulling. I have no problem with the rich paying more taxes as long as the rest of the freeloaders pay their fair share as well.”

“1. Why do you asssume I don't know that or hold them accountable for that?
2. Yes, because there are no affordable alternatives. There would be should our government choose to subsidize green tech rather than polluting sources of energy. Imagine if those trillions went to solar instead of gas or oil. hard for people like you to stop cheerleading the destruction of our natural environment, I realize that.
3. Im glad to pay my own fair share if it means the country is a better place. Again, I realize that the 'all about me' set that people like you represent can't understand that.”

PapaTim41 on Jun 20, 2014 at 21:22:35

“1. Because you didn't mention it, and still haven't expressed any displeasure over it?
2. Our government has funded several "green" companies using our tax dollars, that have failed miserably. I'm an avid outdoorsman, I spend the majority of my free time in the outdoors and am a major proponent of conservation and helping the environment. That said, I'm also a realist and can see the drawbacks to all forms of energy production. The fact is, as bad as fossil fuel production/usage is, we are better equipped to handle the aftermath than many of the others, and the majority of the infrastructure is already in place.
3. I'm not going to go into details, but my wife and I are currently paying around $6000 per quarter on top of our regular income taxes, plus the taxes that I pay for my business. Sounds like we should have a surplus of excess cash, right? Wrong, everywhere we turn, there is some sort of government entity with their hand out, so just how freaking much of the money that I work my axx off for is enough to make people like you happy? According to our last account report, we were paying out over 55% of our income in taxes, fees, etc., so yes, I'm all about me/us at this point. When I'm paying more in takes every year than what I personally gross, and have our president bragging about record numbers of people on government assistance, there's a problem, no?”

“You want to reduce the debt, stop wasting money on stupid wars and trillions in subsidies for oil companies and offshore cayman tax shelters for the wealthy.”

“1. Assuming that you are referring to Iraq and Afghanistan, if you will remember, both were overwhelmingly approved by votes from both sides of the aisle, including Hillary Clinton, Schumer, Reid, Pelosi, and Joe Biden, who all later flip-flopped. Now we're involved in Libya

2. Do you drive a car and heat your home with gas, oil, or electricity produced with natural gas?

3. Are you ready for the government to tell you what you can and can't do with your own money when they can't even manage what we already give them?”

“Newsflash: The present setup costs taxpayers less money than the previous one does. Single payer would cost even less. I guess you like paying more money for a worse system.”

“Dems are largely complicit but there are exceptions. I know lots of people like to argue they are exactly the same, but that's a lazy argument and the facts don't support it policy wise. I can at least name a few Dems I respect that are willing to do the right thing---which is more than I can say for any GOP member. They differ on a lot of issues that are key, ala health care, environment etc. You're right that the Dems were pitiful when enjoying majority control, but equating the two parties is inaccurate.”

“Policy wise they have either voted for or did nothing about the policies you dont like. You are still mentioning a president that left decades ago fpr current policies when democrats have run government since”
