  • The issues are complex but keeping an open mind an open dialogue is always a good thing imo.

  • No honey, I'm talking about the comments that will come afterwards.

    From what I'm learning about the ladies on here (with the exception of a few), they don't care about minority issues. They will say it's their fault and tell us to get over it. Then yell reverse racism. It's coming....just watch.

    That's all.

  • Yeah but Obama and the top 5% of all taxpayers are there to help. Just wait a little while longer on the government for help. It's coming, I promise.

  • The taxes we have now will be looked back on with nostalgia soon. With the printing presses spitting out play money, and China, etc. buying our debt, when it comes time to pay up, you'll see enormous tax hikes across all classes. How about 50%-90% tax brackets to come?
