2boobies "chickenfeather"

Ritty77: "chickenfeather"

Rather than using racism and childish ethnic name calling and bullying, why not try for once to state facts? You have none, zero! I understand that. Beings the Sun Gazette allows and promotes your racist and ethnic slurs and taunting, I'll continue to do so in return even though I'm the better person. One must not continue to allow racist and ethnic attacks upon oneself. May God Bless President Obama. For all of the racist attacks upon this man, the lies continually being told about him, even by the editor of the Sun Gazette ("Obama's blatant lies..."), his integrity is in tact and he shines like a beacon for all to admire! Now, try to grow up and stop with the ethnic and racial slurs. 2boobies, I know that won't be possible for you.

Amen Jay D. Myers, amen. I couldn't have said it better myself. Yet they keep voting for the "wealthy party" to make their laws. If you keep voting for the wealthy, don't cry when they make laws that hurt you, laws that prevent you from living in your home (flood insurance increase) the rest of us don't want to hear the crying and whining!

Pinecr: What do you consider a "fair share" of taxes to be and who should pay a fair share and who should be exempt from paying anything??

What happened, did you come home and find your Dad crying with these words crumpled up in his hands?-Premier

Amusing,& also quite predictable--sad. With all of the comments about how responsible parenting is essential in a youths upbringing, it is a shame that so little of a good, mature example is demonstrated on these boards. Again, JMO-Scott

Well Scott I'm glad it's only JYO.

A personal attack against the SHAM? OUTRAGOUS!

This sad little man has never made anything of himself and wants to ensure nobody succeeds either.-Premier

A little "left over" personal attack from a previous LTE??? It is JMO, but you do realize that behavior such as this would be corrected by a responsible parent with their child, do you not?? Again, JMO.-Scott

Dirty word to Liberals= Profit.

Purpose of profits= Money to be forcibly taken from business for dispersal to voters to buy votes.

Obama and the Libs want everybody to make the same so it's more "fair". Skip exceptionalism or trying hard to be your best anymore because we should all be on the same level, even if you didn't work to get there. Thats the Liberal left and our President at work. Disgusting.

No, Shammy, if a farmer or anyone wants to sell their property it is subject to capital gains if it is a business such as a farm. If their family home is not their principle residence it is subject to capital gains. If their principle residence nets more than 250K profit then it is subject to capital gains. No wires crossed. Just went through this with family recently.

Gavin, as long as there is a “wage disparity” those compensated for higher productivity won’t be paying enough. When we’re all poor maybe they’ll be satisfied, but I doubt it; they’ll still be blaming it on the Republicans.

Sham- Again I feel "disenfranchised" by not being mentioned; "tea-bagger". Obama's plan is to create no jobs so U/C can turn into another entitlement to keep the people controlled. Also, I would not be surprised if Obama tried not to leave in '17 but I think there will be too much pressure on him to exit. There will be, though, consequences for his actions while in office...." - JohnZook

Shaman, you can play all the deflection games you want. The fact is, it is being well reported by numerous news outlets, including the HuffPo that enrollment of young, healthy Americans is only at 24%. Without their enrollments, 2015 premiums will rise dramatically.

enigma, is greed like Haliburton who does not pay its fair share of taxes that hurts the working class. I say shut them down or force them to pay their fair share. It is the gas industry in this country that needs to pay more but that will never happen because the politcians are being funded by them and some politicians own a portion of various gas companies.

"So the young people are being taken because ObamaCare is relying on them to fund the program for elderly. But wait, that is what they wanted because they supported Obama in his initial and reelection efforts. Now they are not signing up for ObamaCare and leaving the system underfunded." - ToTEXASfromPA

You need to come-up (from outta your bunker) for fresh air, more-often. -Shaman

No actually, you do. Without the young and healthy enrollment, premiums are expected to rise dramatically in 2015 for those enrolled.

"John, you do realize that capital gains affects not just the "wealthy," but it also affects the farmer who wants to sell his property or wants to leave his property to his children, it affects the guy who worked hard and invested wisely, it affects more than just the guy tooling around in his Jag." - nobud74

Do YOU realize you've got your "wires" a little "crossed", and you're mixing-up Capital-gains with The Estate Tax??????
