Maybe your taxes won't be going to go up, but mine will... even BHO says so.

Well, it looks like McCain would win in Albania and Niue (the worlds second smallest country in the world when it comes to population...). But again, the world can't vote.

Sadly very reduced studio equipment as it is... ASUS G750J, 8 gb RAM, Win8, Roland Quad Capture.

Join the militay. Fight for our country. Oh wait, were not fighting for our country, were fighting to make a few people some money.

It's not just about taxes, it's about hamanity and giving the word humanity some meaning.

Notation, the original DAW. Everything else is just rote. We are who we are and no more than another. Humans, you people are crazy.

DUUUUDE!

You make more than a quarter MILLION a year!
Wow.
So your tax rate will go from 36 percent to 39 percent? (Does that really make a difference to your fat bankroll?)

Sucks to be you, huh?

Do you know how many hard working people dream of making that much money.

You sound a bit spoiled.

To thine own self be true. ~TheDane

I won't argue that.

BUT -- what if more people can afford your services because they (middle class) pay less in taxes? Wouldn't you like that?

Shut the F*** Up! Socialist~!


Actually, the real socialist is Sarah Palin. She distributed the wealth from the oil companies so that everyone in Alaska got a cut. Socialism at its best.

Dave, you are correct and on that point about distributing oil company wealth, I actually agree with you. I'm probably gonna get screwed either way.

If anybody in this thread thinks they are getting a tax cut either way, you are fooling yourself. I hope you can come back to this thread in a year and look at what you said. There is NO POSSIBLE WAY anyone's taxes will go down. NO WAY. Not to mention the 2003 tax cuts expire in 2010 so that's an automatic up unless they are renewed ( yeah right. )

whatever.

Off topic, this thread is headed for the trash bin anyway.

The Poodle Chews It.

Nobody is asking for your help moron. Oh, excuse me less-on. Lets not make fun of the morons. People deserve a fair chance to make it on their own. The VAST MAJORITY work their butts off and can't keep up becuase of how unfair the financial system is.

And I thought my post about cake losing its goodwill was contentious.


Over here in Scotland everyone is hoping obama will get in (though to be honest it doesnt look like McCain has a hope in hell-he makes great home fries though.

With any luck the US will become a democracy this time

Then you obviously make over $225K per year. I think you can afford to pay a little more. I don't make nearly that much and mine are going down.

Money magazine did an impartial analysis of the two plans: under Obama's plan, people making up to $226K will get a tax cut. Those over $226K will pay incrementally more. With McCain's plan, people making up to $226K will get a tax cut also, but McCain's plan gives even bigger cuts to those making more. Under McCain, people making over $600K will get an average tax cut of $48K. That's just not right. Someone has to pay for Bush's war and it shouldn't be the middle class. Also, McCain's $5000 rebate for healthcare is not enough for most families.

McCain will be just the same as Bush. He'll take care of the rich and the big corporations and whatever trickles down on the middle class is what they'll get. He has 9 houses and 13 cars. Do you think he cares about you?

I agree. It should also be noted that the only way we will ever get out of this mess is to keep paying taxes. There is no way around it.

My girlfriend is paying over $7,000/year with a $2500 deductable for a single woman (no familiy) with NO pre-existing conditions.

McCain's plan sux.

I've worked in the past for a compay that provided the "gov't" insurance. Cost me pennies per month for full coverage.

Obama's plan is VERY enticing.

If Obama runs this country as well as his campaign, the US will bounce back and be respected in the world again.

Not to worry, after the election we will meet the Real Obama if he wins. The one who has never voted for a tax cut and never voted against a tax increase. It amuses me to see so many people walking directly into the buzzsaw with a smile on their face. The Obama tax plan is a house of cards, a sham. You can't raise spending to that degree and cut taxes. Why don't we just tax the richest 5 people in the whole country 100% and make everything else free? Or just take everything from everyone and provide food, shelter, and health care for everyone. Then we can be one big Cuba, and bask in the wealth and glory of our marxist utopia.

Have a nice election day, everyone!

Actually, most of it came from small donations from lots of people. Go to the Obama website. They typically ask for $5 to $25 donations. This is a grassroots movement.

Especially not if we continue this illegal and immoral war in Iraq at the cost of $10B per month! We have to get out of Iraq. McCain is deluded. We will never win a war in Iraq. Those people have been fighting for thousands of years and as soon as we leave, they'll be back at it. So let's cut our losses and get the hell out of there. We ought to get out of Afghanistan too. No one has ever won a war in Afghanistan. The Russians fought there for years and finally got smart and left and now we're stuck there. Time to bring our troops home, and rebuild our country. The war we need to win is the economic war. China is kicking our ass.

Tom (tyde) - I understand your anger... I've felt it for the last 8 years!!! You Republicans have been hogging the ball long enough - let us play!!

Got to the polls at 5:40 this morning (20 minutes before they opened), and 150 people aready ahead of me. About 500 in line by 6:30... Good to see people involved in the political process!!!

Peace...
