As I said on another thread:

New voters, ones that turn 18 this year. Were only 5 when this was happening. It may be old news to us...." <<<<
From this post:
The Lessons of 1994
Normally I would just link it. But I think its important to remember what the Rats are all about so Ill do a cut & paste of what I put down.
Mr. Peabody were are you setting the Wayback Machine for today?
Sherman back to 1993 when there was presidents called Billarey with strange cast of Characters...
Beep bob boop....
Here's a cut & past from here:
So --- here is the idea that the Clinton Administration was tossing around prior to the voter revolution of 1994. They were going to impute credit extra income to people who own their own homes. This was going to be done for two reasons. First, to push more people into the higher income brackets where Clinton tax increases could reach them. Second, to increase the amount of taxes actually collected from these people. Here's how Clinton's imputed income scheme was going to work:
Let's say you own a home worth $250,000. Your payments on that home are about $2,000 a month. The government uses census data (there is a reason they ask all of those extra questions) to figure out what a $250,000 home in your neighborhood would rent for. Let's say it would rent for $3000 a month. This means that you could rent your home for $1000 a month more than your payments. But you're not renting your home, you're living in it. You must know that this just isn't fair to people who have to rent homes. They don't get the tax deductions you get. They don't own their own homes because, unlike you, they haven't, as Dickie Gephardt likes to phrase it, "won life's lottery."
Well .. since you're so rich and since you own your own home, the Democrats would really like to get a little more money from you, to spend on those poor renters and people who aren't as "fortunate" as you are. This would all be in exchange of their votes, of course.
So ... here is this element of the Democrats' secret plan for you and your bank account. When you fill out your tax return you will have to consult certain tables and government data to determine what a home like yours would rent for in your neighborhood. Using the example above, your home would rent for $3000. You're paying $2000 a month to your mortgage company. You will be instructed to take the difference ($1000 a month) and multiply it by 12. This gives you $12,000. That's your imputed income. Add that to your other earnings to come up with your taxable income. That adds up to more than $4,500 in additional income taxes if you're in the top tax bracket. Hey, it's only fair ... you being rich and all.
Just in case there some yongons out there who have no idea who Mr. Peabody or the Wayback is:
Wonderful in any language, but a propos in Kerry's case:
"May his testicles be doorknockers on the gates of Hell."
Propped up holding a what?
Ho. Ho. We all know.
Traitorous Kerry has got to go.
Great phrase...What is the original language?
Well done! Brilliant! Kerry and his staff were AWOL when I called this morning. Probably hiding behind the drapes. But the troops got the message to him and the rest of the Dems!
Kerry has no room to talk about grades, especially in conjunction with the President, because George outdid Kerry. Stupid, arrogant elitist!
Christian news and commentary at: sacredscoop.com ...
You know that the S has hit the FAN when HILLARY! kicks this turd to the curb. The Dem party is done. Murtha is the standard bearer.
The sh!tbag Kerry earned nothing. He does not even have the honor to step aside, after slamming my family. I sincerely hope for a slow and painful demise for him and every family member of his. This desire condemns me to a horrible fate. So be it.
Heh. I used to love Mr. Peabody but had forgottem about his significant contributions to 'Toondon. Thanks for the ping.
This Just InKerry's IQ is Lower than Bush's!
During a Vietnam-era run for Congress three decades ago, John Kerry said he opposed a volunteer Army "because it would be dominated by the underprivileged, be less accountable and be more prone to the perpetuation of war crimes."
In 1972, as he ran for the House, he was less apologetic in his comments about the merits of a volunteer army. He declared in the questionnaire that he opposed the draft but considered a volunteer army "a greater anathema."
"I am convinced a volunteer army would be an army of the poor and the black and the brown," Kerry wrote. "We must not repeat the travesty of the inequities present during Vietnam. I also fear having a professional army that views the perpetuation of war crimes as simply 'doing its job.'
Do you have a link for that kerry quote?
"Great phrase...What is the original language?"
Oddly enough, Arabic
