Boehner? Doesn't he have like a ridiculously low approval rating? Even for a republican?

with arguments like "we're stimulating ACORN" it shouldn't be a surprise.

The same John Boehner who just gave an angry tirade last week about how he got into politics to decrease the size of government even though he's been a part of the Republican party the last 19 years and has helped pass legislation allowing some of the largest growth in governmental powers and presence in history?

That same John Boehner?

You think that's fucking loony, I heard a crazy conspiracy theory about the mandated switch to digital about how the government is using it to basically be like fucking 1984.

I watched that on CSPAN and the entire I was like "You mean that redundant Homeland Security Department?"

And I think you need to stop complaining about taxes. Do you even make enough money a year that this will effect you? I doubt it.

No, but in four years I will.

(Affect, not effect. Sorry, I couldn't let that one go.)

Never said anything about how it will emotionally affect you. But it doesn't have an effect, a physical change, on your life.

It's a run on, but it definitely gets the point across. I'm kind of disappointed that the Democrats are shoving this down our throats. We're going to be paying a lot more taxes.

Just never forget, there's life after death... and taxes.


I went to a movie with my friend on Friday, and while we were waiting for my mom to pick us up I mentioned how I was offered a summer job in D.C. working for Obama and she went off telling me how much she hates him because hes raising taxes and its evil. Quite frankly I'm a little bit scared that there is more than one person who thinks tax raises are bad.

If you cut taxes what do you think will happen? Teachers and the military get pay cuts, then cops, fire fighters, and construction workers get fired. Who do you think pays for the 911 operators and the technology they use to find people? Schools dont get rebuilt and get over crowded, our roads get ruined which ruins our cars, and then we're all screwed. Not to mention raising taxes is what makes this country richer, giving us more power, and both make our dollar stronger. We owe china 12.1 TRILLION dollars, and how are we going to pay that back? I know talking about taxes is annoying but people should honestly know that we need to raise taxes sooner or later to get this country going.

As for right now, what I dont get is why they dont just erase everybody's credit scores and let them start over, give them confidence so they can go spend more. If something big doesnt happen in the next year we'll be in a depression for the next decade.

didn't even have to work for that one, nice.

as for the econ classes, i've taken quite a few seeing as its my major.

whereas you, on the other hand, deny the effects of the new deal, are conservative only when it's convenient, and post fox news links arguing that obama's turning our economy socialist (and subsequently start threads about it that get locked for complete idiocy).

Sick burn.

Not that I'm supporting the bitch move on his part of playing the grammar card, but he's actually right. That's not the difference between those two words. "Effect" is never a verb.

I've been gone for a while. Good to see that when incapable of making a valid point, we attack someone's grammar now. I wasn't sure if this board would ever fall on par with the intelligence of the General Forum, but by golly, where there is a will, there is a way.

It's a shame, isn't it? That's why I like it here, it has many less idiots. I hate people arguing over grammar when what they meant is obvious.

I can't contribute anything valid so, I'm just going to say 'this.'
People are claiming the switch is so the government can make the TV like those TVs that watch you in 1984 and so that the government can send out low frequency soundwaves to control the populace. Some real AnarchyintheUS shit.
