No, Igor: If it comes out of their mouths it is the truth. You on the other hand have to proveRead More everything you say. At least that's the way it seemed when I last did jury duty. Hypocrisy.

Last time I had jury duty, the judge giving the instructions told us that when listening toRead More testimony, the police testimony holds no more credence than the average citizen. If you fight a ticket, guess who the judge is going to believe?

According to William A. Niskanen, one of the architects of Reaganomics, "Reagan delivered onRead More each of his four major policy objectives, although not to the extent that he and his supporters had hoped", and notes that the most substantial change was in the tax code, where the top marginal individual income tax rate fell from 70.1% to 28.4%, and there was a "major reversal in the tax treatment of business income", with effect of "reducing the tax bias among types of investment but increasing the average effective tax rate on new investment". Roger Porter, another architect of the program, acknowledges that the program was weakened by the many hands that changed the President's calculus, such as Congress.[2][21] President Reagan, has remained popular as an antitax hero despite raising taxes eleven times over the course of his presidency, all in the name of fiscal responsibility.[22] Reagan ultimately raised taxes more times than he cut them.[23] According to Paul Krugman, "Over all, the 1982 tax increase undid about a third of the 1981 cut; as a share of GDP, the increase was substantially larger than Mr. Clinton's 1993 tax increase."[10] According to historian and domestic policy adviser Bruce Bartlett, Reagan's tax increases over the course of his presidency took back half of the 1981 tax cut. Though since the Reagan tax reductions, top marginal tax rates have remained lower than at any point in US history since 1931, when the top marginal rate was raised from 25% to 63%. [24]

It's not the number of times that count, it's the size of the resulting cuts, and txes dropped underRead More Reagan, and economy boomed. Reagan's tax increases were part of a deal with Democrats to reduce spending. The taxes went up but the spending cuts never occurred. Just like Reagan's amnesty was supposed to be tied to border enforcement. Reagan's two biggest mistakes involved trusting Democrats to hold up their end of the deal. Those of us who remember that will never be fooled again.

Let's get to the point. What Jon Daniel tweeted was not true parody (or impersonation) at all.Read More Political parody should mimic the target's personality and actions, not present unrealistic scenarios that bear no resemblance to his behavior. For an example of true parody, see the Onion's current take-off of Eric Cantor. What Daniel did was nasty and unimaginative.

Apparently Mr. Swanson does not understand how our electoral system works. If you want a CommunistRead More in the white house in 2020, you vote for one. I also don't think Mr. Swanson knows the difference between promotion and tolerance. I'm not sure how the GSA "promotes" lesbianism or the other issues he claims. Isn't it interesting how so many religious leaders preach tolerance, yet practice bigotry? When meddling in the lives of others and taking on a crusade against fair, law-abiding people and organizations, they really should be looking more at what they know than what they believe, because not everyone believes the same thing. If your religion says, "Don't do it," then be a good follower and don't do it...but leave everyone else alone! The Constitution grants us freedom of religion, so if your god says I must be a certain person, act a certain way, believe a certain thing, etc., I shouldn't be forced to follow those rules simply because one bigot (or a group of them) demands that I do. Those rules are based on belief, which can easily be (and in most cases, are, since there are so many different religions) false. Belief is not the same as knowledge, and being able to differentiate is important. It looks like Kevin Swanson wants to force his beliefs down everyone's throat, and if that doesn't work then up everyone's posterior.

ZeroCare was designed to do one thing. That is fail, and have people begging for "SingleRead More Payer" a.k.a. National Healthcare (socialist) You know the kind that a person gets diagnosed with an operable brain tumor, only it takes 18 months to get approval for surgery, at which point its terminal. This $634,000,000 dollar website doesn't even work. Employers laid people off to get under 50 employees or just started turning everyone into part time. Obamacare is an increase, even on middle/low class people. Mine costs are going to more than double in the next two years. Think about this, for every dollar that goes into welfare, only 27cents makes it to the recipient. The rest is eaten up by the bureaucracy. = huge waste designed to wreck this country, and transfer trillions to the big foreign "insurance companys" i.e. megabanks.

The clear FLAW with his video is that he was applying for a 2013 individual policy through theRead More private exchange. 2013 plans are fully underwritten which is why he had to provide the health history and medical information. If he had done things PROPERLY, he would have selected 2014 for his new plan. It would have taken him about 5 minutes as there is no health history or financial history. Just, name, address, date of birth, tobacco use, which plan and how you are paying and DONE. Clearly either he is INCOMPETENT or he is BIASED and wanted to make the healthcare.gov site seem better than the alternative.

I for one would love to see the Federal Government "shut down" entirely. Originally itRead More was only there to to legislate, settle disputes among states, SCOTUS was supposed to check the new laws versus Constituion, and the military was for the DEFENSE of our homeland. That was it. What it is now is a bloated corrupt beurocracy, which is no longer by the people for the people and ran by the people, instead it exists to enslave us, dictate to us, and use us in any way it can. Shut it all down, including the worthless alphabet agencys such as the EPA, the Dept of Education, the ATF ... ect ect. I give no cares if we go bankrupt and all of the .gov parasites get sent home without a check. Please shut down.
