    Has everybody heard that the Obamas paid $112.000 in fed taxes on income of $609,000 and also gave $150,000 to charity in ’12? I think that charitable contribution amount is pretty darn good!

    • Ted

      Yes the charity probably was Egypt.

      • Karolyn

        Just another stupid remark. I’m sure you are aware that deductions must be to 501c3 organizations, or am I holding a class here.

        • CrustyOldGeezer

          “holding class”? no.

          But in another sense you are by patiently explaining to everybody that you either do not have a clue about life in America, or that you are just another paid troll.

            Well, I DO live here!

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            And that means what exactly?

            I also “live here”, but I also pay attention to the world around me.

            Your comments are very indicative of a mind that flows through life never once noticing the events surrounding it on a daily basis.

            How much did you PAY in taxes last year?

          • Bob666

            Yo Geez,
            Probably paid more in taxes than you earned last year.

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            You said you only worked 10 hours a day.

            You probably aren’t as ‘successful’ as you pretend.

          • Bob666

            Yo Kursty,
            “You said you only worked 10 hours a day.

            You probably aren’t as ‘successful’ as you pretend”.

            When I got to my mid sixties, I decided that 10 good productive hours five to six days a week was where I performed best. I did 10 to 12 hours a day in my thirties to early sixties and earned four degrees while doing it and then taught college as night and on the weekends part time.

            Anymore other Dumb-A$$ comments to show your vast intellect??

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            It’s good that anybody can make any claims they desire knowing up front that they never have to prove any of it isn’t it?

            Anymore other Dumb-A$$ comments to show your vast intellect??

            Seriously, you really think anybody that has worked a full time job is going to believe your tales of wondrous successes?

            Every comment you have made points to LOSER category.

            But you hang in there with the name calling and other childish foolishness.

          • Bob666

            Yo Kursty the Clown,

            “It’s good that anybody can make any claims they desire knowing up front that they never have to prove any of it isn’t it”?

            That is an interesting thought, never mulled it over. Enough about me, let’s give you the opportunity to “Pump” up your accomplishments? Want to tell us about your new single wide?

            “Anymore other Dumb-A$$ comments to show your vast intellect”?? Well Krusty, you’re not exactly testing out very high on the IQ scale yourself.

            “Seriously, you really think anybody that has worked a full time job is going to believe your tales of wonderous successes”? Depends on what they did with their life. If one was a postal worker or worked in a MFG facility, probably not and there is nothing wrong with those occupations as they are honest. But if one started and built a business, yes one could believe everything that I have stated. I know a lot of people just like me in the business world.

            “Every comment you have made points to LOSER category”.

            Takes a loser to identify a loser? You really do seem to be very defensive on these issues. What is this deal with the paid troll crap?

            “But you hang in there with the name calling and other childish foolishness”. Gee Wiz Krusty-Have you looked at the crap that you post? You are nothing more that a repressed school yard bully. Seriously, you bully and put down Jana like a wife beater. do you have one of those shirts with the sleeves cut off?

          • Bob666

            YO Krusty-

            You never have elaborated on your vast experience and accomplishments???? Inquiring minds want to know.

            Oh yes, since you do like to pick on woman like Jana, do you have the wife beater shirt?

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            I have no need to “brag”, obviously you feel the need to inflate your progress through life though.

            Most people would consider that a character flaw.

            I generally view it as childish and immature. But, you are a childish and immature liberal, so I guess it would be redundant in your case.

            As to your problem with ‘jana’…

            If you cannot come to an intellectual agreement with another person, and you find that the only option left is physical violence, I would consider that just more proof of childishness and immaturity….

            But, you are still a liberal, so, once again… it’s redundant.

          • Bob666

            Yo Krustry,

            What color is the sky in your world??

            “Most people would consider that a character flaw”.

            Based on your quotes, are you in a position to post that?

            “I generally view it as childish and immature. But, you are a childish and immature liberal, so I guess it would be redundant in your case”.

            Based on your quotes, are you in a position to post this?

            OK, I’m Game, when did I ever threaten Physical Violence ON ANYONE???

            Boo-hoo. Poor you.

          • Karolyn

            I could care less what people call me, Ringgo. The point is that it’s a sign of classlessness when people have to resort to namecalling. People who are sure of themselves and have class do not have to resort to childish behavior to get a point across.

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            “classlessness”?

          • Karolyn

            Yes, classlessness. What wrong with that?

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            Is that in the low information peoples dictionary?

            Perhaps it’s the fact that proper grammar is no longer taught in the government indoctrination centers…..

            “The point is that it’s a sign of classlessness”

            Should be:

            “The point being, it is a lack of culture, or class, if you will…”

            how much do trolls get paid nowadaze?

          • Karolyn

            Well, it is I the dictionary, so who’s the one who doesn’t know his grammar? It is the noun version of classless.

            http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/classless

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            That still doesn’t answer how much trolls get paid.

            And the dictionary I usually refer to hasn’t been updated to include the low-info language.

            “Well, it is I the dictionary”…

            I will assume you failed to strike the “n” key with enough force to register…..

          • Karolyn

            Wish I did get paid!
            Did you even LOOK in the dictionary? It is common language!

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            “common Language” deteriorated through the negligence of the educational/indoctrination system to ‘stupid down’ the masses.

            I see in your case, they have succeeded remarkably well.

          • Karolyn

            Duh! So you never heard of sleeplessness? This is NOT a new concept! I have always excelled in English grammar and know what I’m talking about. You’re just being ridiculous. Language changes with the times. We may not like some of the current language, but change happens whether we like it or not. The basics remain the same, and adding “ness” to the end of certain words is basic.

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            you mean like “stupidestness”?

          • Karolyn

            Just keep displaying your ignorance, Crusty. It surely does you no good. How about restlessness?

          • CrustyOldGeezer

      • Bob666

        Hey Ted,

        Here is an idea. Why don’t you go and look at the charities they Obama family gave to? or is it just easier to make a “probably was Egypt” remark and try to package it as fact?
        Hey, that makes you qualified to work at FOX news.

        • fed up

          Hey Bob66 you are missing the point. They are using the tax loopholes, he campaigns against to reduce his tax burden. It does NOT matter which charity he used. Hypocrite. This liar thinks that all his dumb policies do not apply to him. While he destroys our economy he is stealing what little money is left after his tax hikes to finance his every wish and desire. Thank God for fox, they will at least tell us the truth about this Manchurian president. Once he is finished looting our country there will be no more money to finance your free stuff you liberal covet so much.

          • Bob666

            Gee Barb,

            Where does one start? I guess you need to be a bit less reserved on your hate of Obama? I probably used many of the tax loopholes that he did this year on my tax return. Does that make me a hypocrite? Tax law is written by the house and senate and signed into law by the president. Are you equally pissed at you congressional representatives???

            By the way, I’m not a demarcate and did not vote for Obama and I have paid my way for well over fifty years as an adult.

            “Thank God for fox, they will at least tell us the truth about this Manchurian president”
            You do know that several studies have shown that FOX news viewers are proven to be less informed don’t you?

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            “You do know that several studies have shown that FOX news viewers are proven to be less informed don’t you?”

            You failed to mention the link to those ‘studies’, and specifically who did the ‘studying.

            On the other hand, there are no persons of reasonable intellectual capacity that are less informed than the lame stream media viewers, AKA “low-information” types.

            Probably stepped on your toes there, but nobody really cares.

            Just out of curiosity…”By the way, I’m not a demarcate” what is a ‘demarcate’?

          • Jana

            The same thing could be said of any one who used just one source whether it be ABC, NBC, or CBS (heaven forbid) or even the internet. We must all be as well rounded as possible. We have enough people out there that are just too busy living their lives and trying to make a living to even be paying attention to what is going on with politics or political agenda’s and they stupidly believe what the main stream media tells them. These people are being led around by the nose so to speak.

            Then we have those who want to be led around by the nose as they do believe in those agenda’s and go right along with them and have a vested interest in them. We call those the gimme people. They are the ones with their hands out.

            So yes it ‘s important to be well rounded in our education in every possible way, and not limit ourselves to just one source.

            I do draw the line with the vulgar and idiotic Chis Matthews however! UGH!!!

          • Bob666

            Oh Jana,

            You have been one very active lady today.

            With the consolidation of the various media outlets, there are no more reliable sources. I was in mourning when the Wall Street Journal sold out to Rupert Murdoch. I get my news from a variety of sources that do include FOX (who gets it right at times) along with NBC and CBS for news. I’m too much of a tight-wad to pay for cable. I do listen to Bloomberg for business and NPR when I am in the car.

            Yes, I listen to Limbaugh on a rare occasion when I want a good l want a good laugh and even he hits the nail on the head every now and then (his accuracy is not good).

            FOX is far from a news outlet for a multitude of reasons. First, there is Roger Ailes who had most of the republican presidential candidates on the FOX news payroll back in 2012. Did NBC, CBS, ABC or any other news outlet do that? Roger Ailes has a very long history in the republican party and I don’t consider him to be a news man.

            Journalism is about the five “W’s” Who-What -When-Where & Why. None of the four major networks do a very good job at the five W’s anymore, but IMHO, FOX is the most tainted.

            That being said, I do watch Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace every week.

            Barbara,
            Another point, in anyone else’s catagory they would have to add back the amount of money that was spent on their behalf for these vacations, as part of their income. Obviously he did not have to. If he would have his income would have been much much higher.

            Traveling expenses, even golf grounds fees or whatever they are called, even if they are donated since he is the President, would still be considered income to any of us.

          • CrustyOldGeezer

            The same would hold true for personal golf trips on AF One.

        • CrustyOldGeezer

          Gee Bob666, my guess would be that his favorite charity would be himself.

          He certainly ‘donated’ a few hundred billion of TAXPAYER DOLLARS to his friends that will be happy to ‘donate’ most of it back to him later.

          Or did you miss that ;charitable donation’?

          • Bob666

            Yo Crusty (kind of reminds me of “Crusty the Clown”)

            When you look at what Obama did in comparison to “W” with the Oil industry, Big pharmaceutical and Corporate America in General.
            Where was your outrage them?
            I did not vote for Obama and I can find things to be critical of him. His tax return is not one of them.

          • Bob666

            Yo Crusty,
            A: “‘My ‘outrage’ was front and center, but you weren’t here to see it were you”? No, I was running a company ten plus hours a day.

            B: “Where is your outrage against bigger government by the day policies of this resident of the white house”? Hate to be the one that informs you Krusty, but that big Government, came mostly under “W”, were you not paying attention????

            C: Where is your outrage over the government interference in the free market”? Perhaps you could explain your question in greater detail. Was that interference with the banking industry that your tax dollars bailed out after they bundled bad mortgage bundles that in part almost crashed the financial markets? Or was it an inefficient health care industry that consumed twice as much out GDP as any other of the G8 industrial nations and does not cover every citizen?
            I could go on for all night if you would like?
            The bottom line Krusty is; I did not vote for Obama and certainly do not agree with much of his economic policies. But one can’t solve a problem until you identify the problem and blaming Obama is not the problem or the solution.

            What is the “yo” thingie?

            Does it make you feel like you iz smart or sumptin?

            FACT: We may be on the same side, but I doubt it. I don’t think you’re smart enough.

            FACT: I don’t blame bammie, and it wasn’t all bushes fault either, but your obvious hatred for him speaks volumes.

            FACT: No sunshine, you probably didn’t earn more than I did last year, but you will never know because wealth, in all its glorious disguises is not a subject that is open to discussion. But if you think it makes you feel important, knock yourself out.

            FACT: You can attack all you want, but it doesn’t improve your position. In fact, it makes you look foolish, but you seem to wear it well…

            Yo Krusty,

            You really are insecure about this stuff, sorry to push your buttons at will.

            “We may be on the same side, but you aren’t smart enough to figure it out”. No, that one is pretty easy. you are a narrow minded lack of the GOP and I am a libertarian-Live and let live kind of guy.
            ====================================================
            “I don’t blame bammie”, and “it wasn’t all bushes fault either”, no, it took thirty-plus years of incompetence to get us here today. “but your obvious hatred for him speaks volumes”. Actually, I did not hate “W”. While he is a card carrying moron and was the chief Lackey for Dick Cheney, I made a whole bunch of money when in six of his eight years. You seem to have far more of a problem with “bammie” than I have with Bush.
            ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
            “No sunshine, you probably didn’t earn more than I did last year” No, If you go back and read, I sad that I probably paid more in taxes than you made. “but you will never know because wealth, in all its glorious disguises is not a subject that is open to discussion” I agree with you on that. “But if you think it makes you feel important, knock yourself out”. No, not actually, it does not, just a statement of fact.
            ====================================================
            “You can attack all you want, but it doesn’t improve your position”. Actually Krusty, there is no position to improve. I was just simply doing the right thing by standing up for Karolyn with your comment:
            “But in another sense you are by patiently explaining to everybody that you either do not have a clue about life in America, or that you are just another paid troll”

            And no, YOU didn’t ‘pay more in taxes than I earned’.

            Bob,

            Your question of, “Was that interference with the banking industry that your tax dollars
            bailed out after they bundled bad mortgage bundles that in part almost crashed the financial markets?”

            That was good ole Barney Frank and his good friends in the Housing Markets that are at fault for that. Pres. Bush tried to sound the alarm on this but was shot down on this deal.

            Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was among those in Congress who
            attacked the proposed reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

            “In fact, in 2003, when Pres. Bush sent the first members of the Cabinet up to talk about this on Capitol Hill, Barney Frank had a hearing in which they basically beat up everybody they sent up there in pretty vociferous language.

            Rep. Gregory Meeks, a New York Democrat, said at that Sept. 25, 2003 House Financial Services Committee hearing that he was “pissed off at OFHEO (Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight),” because of the agency’s suggestion
            that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac should be regulated more closely. A number of other Democrats agreed there was no need for reform.
            ———————————–…

            sayanythingblog.com/entry/president_bush_wanted_to_fix

            September 11th, 2003:

            The Bush administration today recommended the most significant regulatory overhaul in the housing finance industry since the savings and loan crisis a decade ago.

            Under the plan, disclosed at a Congressional hearing today, a new agency would be created within the Treasury Department to assume supervision of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored companies that are the two largest
            players in the mortgage lending industry.

            The new agency would have the authority, which now rests with Congress, to set one of the two capital-reserve requirements for the companies. It would exercise authority over any new lines of business. And it would determine whether the two are adequately managing the risks of their ballooning portfolios.

            The plan is an acknowledgment by the administration that oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — which together have issued more than $1.5 trillion in outstanding debt — is broken.

            Guess who opposed this new regulation? Homebuilders, who didn’t want it to be more difficult to get a home loan, and Democrats who didn’t want to go back on their demands that everyone (including people who couldn’t afford it) should own a home.

            Among the groups denouncing the proposal today were the National Association of Home Builders and Congressional Democrats who fear that tighter regulation of the companies could sharply reduce their commitment to financing low-income
            and affordable housing.

            ”These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis,” said Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the
            Financial Services Committee. ”The more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.”

            Representative Melvin L. Watt, Democrat of North Carolina, agreed.
            ——————-

            Now I am hearing rumblings from Obama how he wants the banking industry to start making loans, AGAIN, to low income earners so they can buy houses that they can’t afford.

            Seems like some people never learn.

          • Bob666

            Yo Jana,
            it’s been a while.
            “That was good ole Barney Frank and his good friends in the Housing Markets that are at fault for that. Pres. Bush tried to sound the alarm on this but was shot down on this deal.

            Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) was among those in Congress who
            attacked the proposed reform of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

            “In fact, in 2003, when Pres. Bush sent the first members of the Cabinet up to talk about this on Capitol Hill, Barney Frank had a hearing in which they basically beat up everybody they sent up there in pretty vociferous language”.

            There were three primary componets to the financial meltdown that occurred in the 2007 era at the end of the Bush administration.

            You have identified one of them and while Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were used to back mortgages with by the government as the underwriter, that was only the first step to the problem.

            “Building on the definition of a bond, a mortgage-backed security (MBS) is an asset-backed security that represents a claim on the cash flows from mortgage loans through a process known as securitization’.

            We started seeing problems with major investment banks bundling these mortgage-backed securities around 2002 when the economy started picking up after the economic shocks of 9/11. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac backed a bunch of loans that should not have been made due to lax credit restrictions, but private backed mortgage issuers saw the lucrative opportunities and jumped in full force.

            Think back Jana to around 2004-2005 when the real estate prices were going through the roof? Mortgage brokerages were a new and booming industry. Major investment banks saw the opportunity to issue mortgage-backed securities at premium prices since new mortgages were so plentiful. Sub-Prime mortgages became even more lucrative and there were in great abundance in the market as well.

            Mortgage-backed securities are graded by quality or risk. Major Wall Street firms and investment banks started “peppering” B & C grade paper with A quality paper in these mortgage-backed securities.

            As the economy crashed, the B & C paper was the first to go into default and that compromised the A paper in these mortgage-backed securities. This caused far more of the damage than anything that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac did.

            The final problem was due to Derivatives. A Derivative is a financial instrument which derives its value from the value of underlying entities such as an asset, index, or interest rate. “A derivative is a financial contract whose value is derived from the performance of underlying market factors, such as interest rates, currency exchange rates, and commodity, credit, and equity prices. Derivative transactions include an assortment of financial contracts, including structured debt obligations and deposits, swaps, futures, options, caps, floors, collars, forwards, and various combinations thereof.

            Again, Financial Firms and Banks found great profit in Derivatives and what is worse, The SEC did not have regulators who understood them at the time and that was part of the over-haul that has taken place in the last five years and it was way over due.

            Finally, Glass–Steagall Act to permit commercial banks and especially commercial bank affiliates to engage in an expanding list and volume of securities activities created all of this mess. The Glass–Steagall Act was repealed through the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act of 1999 (GLBA)

          • Jana

            Bob,

            You are right, The GSA was repealed when the Gramm-LeachBliley Act was established in November of 1999 and it lets the banking institutions provide a much broader range of services and activities up to and including underwriting.

            Not everyone was happy, hmm I wonder who it was that wasn’t
            happy????

            In finance, contracts whose value is derived from another
            asset, which can include stocks, bonds, currencies, interest rates, commodities, and related indexes. Purchasers of derivatives are essentially wagering on the future performance of that asset.

            Futures and options are accepted products of derivatives,
            but they are risky especially after major corporations had big losses back in 1994.

            In what you stated, all three of them tie into one another.
            As you said, “. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac backed a bunch of loans that should not have been made due to lax credit restrictions, but private backed mortgage issuers saw the lucrative opportunities and jumped in full force.” Which, Pres.Bush sounded the alarm and was met with head on attacks and assaults.

            The B & C paper loans should never have been made as
            these were the ones who had limited or poor credit. These people had almost no hope of paying their mortgage.

            Now Obama is pushing for them to try this again. WHAT????

            By the way, I listen to and read several different sources
            too.

          • Bob666

            Jana,
            Never said that you were myopic on your information, but you did open with the “let’s blame Barney Frank” line and while that was a problem no doubt, It was a very small part of the problem. Had there not been the fraud involved with the mortgage-backed securities, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac would just be holding the paper on a bunch of over valued real estate as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were responsible for creating just under half of that bad paper.

            The major investment banks who were bundling these mortgage-backed securities were under no federal mandate to do so, This was done out of shear greed and nothing else. Greed created the other half of the bad mortgages the F/M & F/M did not create them.

            I really do laugh when I hear the Barney Frank & Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac line as this was nothing more right wing bable to discredit democrats in elections as you can see for your self:

            Don’t get me wrong, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac went south and while Barney Frank and company had some idealistic intentions, there were not financially or rationally sound, but they have been nothing more than a right wing scape goat.

Never did he take communion, and when his wife, Martha, did, he waited for her outside the sanctuary… Even on his deathbed, Washington asked for no ritual, uttered no prayer to Christ, and expressed no wish to be attended by His representative.” [New York Press, 1987, pp. 174-175]

        The Pres. gets a salary of $400,000. The other $200,000 came from book sales, etc. ALL presidents have “mooched” off the taxpayers. Why do you people seem to think it is any different with this one? I would hope you are educated enough to know that any charity deductions need to be 501c3 deductible? I am not a “worshipper” of the President. I just don’t think he and his wife are quite as bad as you people seem to think. You have fallen victim to the media. I would say that giving 25% of your income to charity is pretty damned laudable. Can you say the same? More rich people should be so charitable. “As ye give, ye shall receive.” I’m sure you can find a list of the charities. As a matter of fact, here is an article that contains two of them. Also, they made less money in ’12 than ’11.

          Obama just forced passage of a bill that states that people in his earnings bracket should be paying 39.6% to the Govewrnment, that’s over $240, 000. This is proof positive that he is a simple hypocrite! He’s saying ” others with my income should pay 39.6% but I need only pay 18%!” Remember when Romney paid 14% Reid claimed it was “nothing” and the Progressives excoriated him as an “Evil 1%er”! WOW it’s true “There are none so blind as he who will not see”

          So tell me; How many presidents have sent a private plane, owned by the taxpayers to fetch their DOG? How many past presidents have a dog trainer on their staff who makes a six figure salary, paid for by our money? Do you know how many staff the former first ladies had? Compare that to the O’s wife. All the parties, globe trotting, separate vacations etc. paid for by us, you are telling me that that’s just fine, considering the state of our economy and the HUGE debt that O has saddled us with? The people *I* know are outraged at the profligate spending by the occupiers of the current white house while we are struggling to make ends meet.

            Many people remark about certain media sites and don’t trust what they have to say. I never defended the Obamas’ vacations. However, my point is that I’m sure there have been others who loved to throw money around. There is nothing new under the sun. There have been presidents who took more vacation days than Obama. As far as cost of vacations, I haven’t researched that yet. Here’s an old article about Reagan.

            http://articles.latimes.com/1987-09-08/news/vw-6663_1_nancy-reagan

          • Jana

            Here is what the article says,

            The presidential chain saw has fallen silent, the meat-loaf pans have been washed, and Rawhide and Rainbow, as the Secret Service refers to President and Nancy Reagan, are back in the White House after a 25-day working vacation on the West Coast.

            Life at the Reagans’ Rancho del Cielo, 29 miles north of Santa Barbara, was reportedly slow-paced and simple this year. But, as anyone who watched Air Force One leave the Point Mugu Naval Air Station near Oxnard on Sunday morning could see,
            the logistics of the First Family’s vacations are enormous. Clearly their vacation budget is a bit bigger and more complex than that of the average American.”———————–

            Of course it is, and so is Pres. Obama’s. This is to be expected. What we are complaining about is his exorbitant and excessive vacations. Not only his vacations that he takes but the ones his family takes without him, continuously it seems. These are not working vacations these are fun filled taking friends with them vacations. (Notice the part where Reagan’s vacation was a WORKING vacation? How many days has Obama actually worked on any of his vacations?)

      Which “charity”?

      • http://cowboybyte.com/ Alondra

        muslim brotherhood, HAMAS & Hezbollah

    • WTS/JAY

      Today, some radical U.S. non-profit groups, pretending to be mainstream, humanitarian charities, are funding violent attacks against innocents, and the frightening thing is… the U.S. government surely knows about it.

      The money moves quietly, in discreet, nearly-untraceable forms. It can be car- ried, transferred and maneuvered until it simply “disappears.” According to the Washington Post, “Money can be hand- carried abroad in small bundles. Cash deposited in a U.S. bank can be with- drawn from ATMs in Israel, Egypt or Jordan. Stored-value cards are portable, while Internet banking allows fast and complex transfers. Fundraisers also use hawala, the ancient system of informal money transfers in which money moves among friends and relations.” 4 Using these and other financial tactics, front organizations are funneling money to Hamas and other terrorist groups in the Middle East with ease.

      After the 9/11 terrorist attacks against the United States, Judicial Watch called for government action against extreme Muslim non-profit organizations that served as front groups, raising money for terrorist action. In 2001, Judicial Watch filed a complaint with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) against non-profit

      organizations “reportedly being used as money laundering front organizations for radical Islamic terrorists.” 5 According to the complaint, “Non-profit entities… have

      been used to ‘launder’ financial transac- tions and facilitate the transfer of funds supporting violent terrorist attacks by HAMAS [the anti-Israeli Muslim move- ment responsible for multiple acts of violence which have killed Americans and Israelis].”

      In 2004, the Senate Financial Committee requested an investigation of several of the organizations on the list originally provided by Judicial Watch. 6 In the request letter, Republican Senator Charles Grassley said, “Many of these groups not only enjoy tax-exempt status, but their reputation as charities and foundations often allows them to escape scrutiny, making it easier to hide and move their funds to other groups who threaten our national security.” 7

      While the U.S. government finally took action against some of the groups iden- tified by Judicial Watch, others are still functioning. The federal government is aware of their presence and the danger they pose to our national security.

      The question is: Why are they still in operation?

      That donation brought him under the 450,000 top tax bracket as a married couple. By going under 450 he was able to use all write offs available where if he stayed above 450 he would have been restricted to what was deductible.

      Lets see. 609,000-112,000—That works out to 18.4%. According to obama that is much too low for a couple making over 250,000. Why is he not stepping up and paying another 90,000 or so to insure he is paying his “fare share” of about 30%.

      • Jana

        Obama’s campaign certainly vilified Romney for paying around 18% when his was out of his retirement and still Romney gave a few million in charitable contributions. Sounds like double standards all around.

There was nothing wrong with the discussion being held (which BTW was true, facts as evidenced in a book by Ms. Judd) which was illegally recorded by guess what A LIBERAL. Same goes for you Bob666, Romney’s statement is true, actually there are more than 47% of the country that lives off taxpayers and will always vote for the party giving away the store. After all, it’s not their money. Thanks for leaving our party. You are confused about the party with no soul or ability to know right from wrong. After all lt’s the liberals lying, cheating, manipulating, bulling, intimidating, and threatening to get their way. There has NEVER been any bigger whinners and blaming than this president and progressives and their lamestream media.

            she vilified herself with the comment about ” What Does It Matter how they Died at the Embassy ” , it was her responsibility to maintian a level of security hat worked to secure the area and using the Islamic guard as security was a judgement error that should have been the expertise of her stature so she either is unqualified to hold that position or she appeased the wrong people for the Job either of which deems her unqualified for the presidency , And these points need to be made clear in any primary period !!!!!

          • Bob666

            Jana,
            Were did my post say that “I don’t care” about Benghazi?

            You are correct, I would care even more if I knew on of those victims. But in the big picture, I know two people who were killed in Iraq and a half a dozen that did not come home in one piece. There were over 1500 times the number of Americans killed in Iraq.

            When you go to a foreign post, there is a risk and people in the intelligence sector and the state department know and accept this.

            It does not make this loss acceptable, it is the reality of the situation. I was simply commenting of the political reality of Benghazi.

          • Jana

            I care because it was senseless and neglectful on the part of our so called leaders, Obama and Hillary.

            I care because they were over there in a foreign country representing ME!.

            I care because they ARE my family! No not flesh and blood family, but when they are part of the troops, they are family.

            I knew people killed in Iraq and in Afghanistan too. I had flesh and blood serving in Iraq. I’ve had flesh and blood serving in Afghanistan. I’ve known people who have had their family members killed in war in Iraq and Afghanistan. It hurts. It affects a lot of people.

            Whether we agree or not with the war, right or wrong, our country called our young men and women into service to fight and they fought. We may disagree with our leaders calling them to war, but we MUST NEVER be callous about the loss of life of our soldiers.

            Obama and Hillary Clinton were very cold hearted and callous as to how they allowed Ambassador Stephens and the 3 other brave soldiers that came to their aid to be murdered. They fought for over 7 hours with no help coming and they were watching in Washington. Obama couldn’t be bothered, he was too busy raising funds and campaigning as he always is.

            This is scandalous and Obama is doing a very good job of covering it all up.

          • Bob666

            Yo Jana,

            One reason that I like you is that you are decent Human Being who cares about other people. I understand watching kids that you watched grow up go off to war and you worry about them. most of the time they come back but often they lose a piece of them selves in the process.

            War sucks no matter how or when it is waged. But I will remind you that Iraq was started long before you and I ever heard the name Obama. I give him credit for bringing our troops home and winding down in Iraq a war that will cost well in excess of a trillion dollars and 10K American lives.

            Why the details of Benghazi suck and there is plenty of blame to go around, that situation could have been even worse and it is one less country that we put more American Lives at risk.

            Benghazi could have been much-much worse.

            Good Night

            I have never questioned your knowledge of the Christian Religion and I have never professed to be an expert, only a man of faith.

            It is interesting that Alondra, Matrix and Sammy can call people by racial slurs and other provocative names and take shots at the presumed sexuality or question their patriotism and you never take issue with them as they do it while quoting scripture-which makes it even more offensive.

            Well Sammy -there you go again,

            As I predicted-you will pull the “you’re lying card” and you did. My interpretation is no worse than yours. Maybe if you did not see your self as America’s only true Patriot, you could clear your head and truly see reality. Humility is a virtue that you lack.

            You have to be the most condescending and arrogant cuss that I have ever run into and as for the accusation of lying-You need to rethink that statement-your facts are often weak. Do you ever ask your self the question after reading one of these post; Could I be Wrong? Maybe you should.

            You make an occasional good point, but most people don’t want to see it as you are shoving it down someones throat.

            ” Judge not lest ye be judged” do you really believe that you have the right to say that????

            Here is a history lesson to make you a better teacher:

            Bob, if my sources are wrong, then the one who wrote, spoke, etc., the quote or source would be wrong. Masonry had little or nothing to do with our founding, so stop lying. I don’t know who is the bigger liar, you with your Masonry nonsense, or a person who follows me around, using various names, claims our founders were deists and agnostics. Sheesh! Wake up and smell the coffee. Could I be wrong? Being wrong is not an option. I shall continue the good fight to protect this Christian nation till I die. Even if I live to be 100 years old, I’ll not yield to people with wrong beliefs. Here is something telling hoe Obama bin Laden is spending our tax dollars.

            BTW, facts about George Washington and his Masonry.
            1. He never attended more than 12 meetings in 40 years.
            2. He never lead a lodge meeting.
            3. If anyone knew he was a Mason, he said for them to tell no one, due to his not believing what they stood for.

            Little Sammy
            “if my sources are wrong, then the one who wrote, spoke, etc., the quote or source would be wrong”

            So what you’re saying is; Sammy is never wrong-even if his facts are? but if Bob’s facts are wrong-Bob is a liar?

            “Masonry had little or nothing to do with our founding, so stop lying”. This really is five year old behavior. I have far more than proven the vast influence of Freemasonry and it’s positive effects on many of the great men who have led this country.

            ” I don’t know who is the bigger liar, you with your Masonry nonsense”. You are not a mason, by you’re own admission , You know nothing about masonry and yet you make ignorant statements like this-to win an argument? That sir is very sad!

            But far more sad is that your issue with one man would allow you to dis an whole group of over two million honorable, ethical and honest men and that goes well beyond pathetic.

            “or a person who follows me around, using various names”,
            All my post are under Bob666 Mr.Sammy1966 & Samurai and it takes two to tango-just walk away since your post to me have been far more Numerous.

            “claims our founders were deists and agnostics”. No, that is not true. I have stated many times the majority of our founders were Christians of various degrees of faith, but most of them were able to think outside the bible. They questioned their faith at times as we all do and maybe in some cases -that reinforced their faith?

            “Sheesh! Wake up and smell the coffee. Could I be wrong”?
            Yes, you have consistently proven yourself wrong.
            “Being wrong is not an option” This one statement says it all!

            “I shall continue the good fight to protect this Christian nation till I die” What about those who are Jews, Buddhist, Hindus, Muslims and other faiths-are they not worthy?

            “To an ancient and venerable exhortation; seek, and ye shall find; ask, and ye shall have; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” (First Lecture; Second Section.)

If we do not, we will be no better than Sodom and Gomorrah come judgement day. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY! 하나님하고 나라를 위해서!

            The only thing I can say about that man is he is going to have to answer to God one of these days and he isn’t going to like it. He will have his just reward.
            We all get to go to heaven. We all answer to God. Some of us will have a reward and some of us will have to answer for our actions if we haven’t repented. It is so easy to repent.

    Again I ask the question what part of the 2nd Admendment do these Congressmen and Senator’s not understand, OH I get it INFRINGED. Folks the next time these RINO’s come home and ask for your vote, will you please read out loud the 2nd Admendment of our Constitution and then maybe they will see that they our not upholding the Constitution that they swore to keep.

    North Korea states ‘nuclear war is unavoidable’ as it declares first target will be Japan

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/391376/North-Korea-states-nuclear-war-is-unavoidable-as-it-declares-first-target-will-be-Japan

    If a guy with a rocket launcher, his finger on the trigger, was standing outside your house and told you “your death is unavoidable, I will shoot this rocket launcher”. You know he is crazy as a loon, Would you blow this guy away as fast as you could pull the trigger?

    Or would you ignore him and let them scoop you and your family up with a spoon afterword?

      Freedom(?) Russia, with a much stronger nuclear program, promised to bury us! We did not launch a preemptive strike! Do you have any idea how many innocent people DID NOT die as a result of that choice. But if you need to rattle you saber just give it a few jerks!

        Nut Case says: Russia “promised to bury us!”

        Nut Case, when you’ll get at least ONE fact straight?

        Russia NEVER “promised to bury us”.

        The famous phrase “Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!” was said by Nikita Khrushchev, the Soviet leader (NOT Russian!).

        And it was NOT said during his 1959 visit to America. It was addressed to the Western ambassadors at the reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow on November 18, 1956.

        And distorters like you, Nut Case, painting “to bury” as a military/physical threat. But what Khrushchev meant was that Soviet Marxist/Kommunist ideology will “bury” the West (International Communism aka Comintern).

        • nc

          Alondra, those Russian ships with missiles headed to Cuba were not parade floats! They were real and the threat was real!
          Have another double Vodka and picture yourself receiving a medal at the Kremlin!

          • http://cowboybyte.com/ Alondra

            Dear Nut, my previous reply was to your: “Russia … promised to bury us!”

            And I proved your WRONG, because Russia NEVER “promised to bury us” and even the Soviets did NOT.

            But now you came with another MISINFORMATION.

            You say: “Alondra, those Russian ships with missiles headed to
            Cuba were not parade floats!”

            And you correct that there was a “parade floats” in October
            1962.

            But WHY Soviets wanted to place their nuclear missiles on Cuba?
            Nut Case, There were TWO reasons for that:

            1) To NEUTRALIZE the US’s MEDIUM-range and INTERMEDIATE-RANGE BALLISTIC NUCLEAR MISSILES in Turkey, which easy could reach the west of the USSR, including Moscow.

            2) Fidel Castro and Nikita Khrushchev reached an agreement to place Soviet nuclear missiles on Cuba with the purpose to prevent another US’s attempt to invade Cuba. (You must remember that Kennedy was embarrassed publicly by the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion in April 1961)

            Nut Case, you lost again (2:0). In your age (77) you already should learn that Ignorance, Dishonesty and Cheating always end in defeat.

            “Magna est veritas et praevalet” – “The truth is great and always prevail”

            BTW, I do not drink Vodka. I drink Rioja during dinner and sometimes Chocolate Liquor.

            But you now can have another double Whiskey and picture yourself receiving FOUR Pinocchio.

            P.S. Nut Case, I am NOT Russian and I NEVER lived in Russia.
            Yes, I speak fluently Russian. (JUST FACTS)

        Why the all caps nc? Have to yell when you go on your rants? Russia has more freedom now then it used to. When Kruschev (sp) said “We will bury you”, it wasn’t about nuclear missiles or warheads, but about how they will bury us agriculturally. Neeeeed to study a bit more. Speaking of North Korea, where Sook Youn g and I receive news from her parents in South Korea, here is an article telling of how the AP hired a “josef Goebbels” from North Korea.

    Did you know that there are thousands upon thousands of homeless people that are living underground beneath the streets of major U.S. cities? It is happening in Las Vegas, it is happening in New York City and it is even happening in Kansas City. As the economy crumbles, poverty in the United States is absolutely exploding and so is homelessness.

    In addition to the thousands of “tunnel people” living under the streets of America, there are also thousands that are living in tent cities, there are tens of thousands that are living in their vehicles and there are more than a million public school children that do not have a home to go back to at night. The federal government tells us that the recession “is over” and that “things are getting better”, and yet poverty and homelessness in this country continue to rise with no end in sight.

    So what in the world are things going to look like when the next economic crisis hits?

      I guess you are complaining about the fact that the income of the bottom 99% of the U.S. population has actually decreased by 0.4% while the income of the top 1% rose by 11.2%. What ivory tower liberals simply can’t get a grasp on is that in a capitalistic economy the market sets the price of products AND labour. That’s why raising the minimum wage by even .25 cents is an arbitrary intrusion by big government. Business owners should be free to offer salaries as low as they like as long as they can attract takers. As there are many unemployed wages can be expected to drop on average which is how the capitalistic market operates. If government were to step in and basically dictate wages that would be commie talk.

      Basically the folks in the bottom 99% should get off their butts and start contributing to society in a meaningful way. That is how you get ahead in our great land. Don’t complain about the top 1% who create jobs and make the country work.

    Right now we can buy guns without the list in ? The FBI approves only. ATFA can get a list from somewhere to find criminal use of a gun or explosive. The new rule if passed will keep a permanent list. Even if you inherit a gun. Right now my guns are at a place where I would have to reregister them? This is just wrong

    Trusting a local police force to protect you in an emergency is like asking a fountain clerk in a drugstore for medical care in an emergency…and that’s not a smear on the police. It’s just a fact of timing. You’ll be dead before help arrives. Of course, all of the RINOs have guns and/or people with guns to protect them. Removing ours is the only way to jam more down our throats.
