If 47% of our 320 million population were NOT EMPLOYED that'd leave only about 20 million left to be employed if we simply exempt the elderly and the very young from the equation.
Try doing the numbers some time before you start believing a story told to you by Sean Hannity.
House Republicans are dopes for sending him this offer —
Interesting take : )
What is North’s reasoning...I tend to agree, too, but curious as to his thoughts.
THE ENTIRE “FISCAL CLIFF” CRAP IS ONLY A RUSE TO RAISE TAXES. PERIOD. COVERS BOTH PARTIES.
As they sent the offer, they were passing out head lamps, helmets and pick-axes.
We’re about to go spelunking!!!!
It’s a counter offer. Obamugabe has no thoughts on the matter ~ nor can he.
And, Timmy's absurd proposal proves my point...team obama does not want a deal...they want pain...pain that they can blame on the GOP's coddling of the "rich".
I can hear him now..."I need your help...I tried but the GOP in the House is worried more about protecting the riches 2% than it is about you...give me what I need to fix this...give me control of the House..."
And it will work if the GOP doesn't get smart.
No cable in my house, and so no Sean Hannity. Sorry. Besides, Fox News is good only for a laugh, at best.
I wasn’t referring to the 47%. That was a number chucked around by the corporate news system.
My 50% represented an inferred estimate. If I had said “sh!tload,” would that have made my point more clear?
yeah, that’s me, a neophyte...good argument.
So much for the “GOP Doomsday Scenario” with threads all over FR.
It's not all Obama we are engaged with. It is the liberal arm of the democrat party and the media and YES they are that smart. The throw out a diversionary issue for the empty heads on TV to talk about for a month and they are meanwhile busy working on an implementation plan that is something else altogether.
Exactly. I use obama to represent the leftists in power. Strategy-wise, they are cleaning the GOP’s clock.
When you hold the majority in the House and vote "Present," you are voting FOR the Dems plan. And you have more than your fingerprints on it. You own it. This is a dumb idea, but what else can you expect from the Stupid Party.
If the Reps should do such a stupid thing, then it will be the end of the GOP. We need a third party to stand on principle. Why elect Reps to be in charge of the House when they surrender to the Dems who are in the minority?
You definitely haven’t written anything to persuade that you’re not a post-2009 groupie. You were probably a rabid Romney supporter during the primaries.
Gee, that might hurt if I cared one bit about your opinion.
The presumption is that being poor is somehow desirable ~ yet, most of us have been poor at one time or the other and we all prefer rich, or if not rich, not poor!
As usual people imagine OTHERS are not motivated by the same things as they themselves are motivated by. That, BTW, is the biggest single reason for losing an election ~ failure to comprehend what people really want!
If you want to be a democratically elected leader you must find out what the people want, then follow them ~ and once you get there ~ counsel them to do even better.
I can’t say exactly.
I heard him say that on Hannity’s program last week sometime during an interview between himself, Sean and Victoria Tensing if I recall correctly.
He asked North what he thought of the ongoing so-called fiscal cliff negotioans and the republicans’ progress or lack thereof in them, and North answered I think the GOP is about to cease to exist.
I cannot disagree. If they stand for nothing, accomplish nothing and merely advance the democrat agenda while at tyhe same time providing the democrats with a foil to deflect blame from themselves, then why should I as a citizen concern myself with voting for them, supporting them financially, or hoping for republican majorities anywhere at all, because they simply make no difference and have no bearing on anything whatsoever?
As far as I can see this is the last chance for the GOP and they are doomed no matter what they do, so they may as well do the right thing and hope people support them as a result of that, because doing the usual cave in for reductions in rates of growth over X number of years is meaningless, and everyone knows it including them.
