No, I'm completely serious. And I said nothing about her tone. I said look at the phrasing.
"Why are you overtaxing us?"
It's accusative, it's subjective, it's leading. There is no reference to how much tax the questioner regards as too much, just right, or not
enough. So the person being asked the question has to go with the accusation that they are overtaxing the questioner. It's similar to the old "Have
you stopped beating your wife?" question or - to put it in a political context - "Hey hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?"
Now I'll admit. I'm assuming. I'm assuming that this woman is bright enough to understand her own words. It could
be that she's just a very
clumsy speaker and her accusative statement-as-a-question was totally accidental.
However, it doesn't change the fact that it's still an accusative statement posed as a question.
Maybe I'm a Corsican prince, too, like I said. it's a funny world, ain't it?
Do you really look at the world like this pretending to know what people think.
Yeah, actually. When people make statements, they're basically telling you what they think. It's sort of the basis for human communication. Maybe
you're just not very good at understanding such things as language comprehension?
Your agenda has clouded you vision of things and it has made you resort to trolling to win a fight. You can not win with issues so why not make
wild accusations and back them up with nothing.
Obama bored an audience answering a question (Well, a statement with a question mark) about taxes. This isn't an "issue," and the fact that you're
trying very hard to pretend that it is really says a lot more about your agenda than it does about mine.
You are what is wrong with ATS. I am sorry but you do not believe in arguing the issues you only want to inflict pain on the other side.
When the "other side" consists only of lies, misinformation, spin, and hate, then yeah, I'm going to inflict as much pain as I can, I'm going to
throw as much fact in their face, and I'm going to belittle them as much as I can conceivably manage. I would be remiss in my participation in this
community if i did anything else.
By the way, if you're going to claim that someone is "what's wrong with ATS" you might want to see about having your
post saying blacks ruined Africa
scrubbed. 'Cause i think it's stuff like
that that drags ATS down.
But I guess at least now I understand why you detest Obama so much, yeah?
The point is he will not address simple question.
Actually the point is he DID address it, and it took forever because it's NOT a simple question.
He always tries to spin everything so you have no idea were he is coming from so that later on he can say that is not what he meant. This is
called spinning the truth.
So is trying to turn it into an "issue"
You should really stop lying.
I doubt he even believes what he says half the time.
Liars are often paranoid about being lied to.
When will you guys see he is exactly the same as Bush. He loves war and taxes and could care less about the middle class or unemployment.
He loves war so much that he hasn't started any in his first year, and loves taxes so much that he gave most Americans a tax cut, and cares about
unemployment so little that the Bush-era unemployment spike has completely reversed under his hand.
Do you even understand what the phrase "exactly the same" means, or are you just lying again?
Benefits run out on the 5th why is he not talking about this? I would say it is the biggest issues right now other than the economy.
Maybe because he was addressing the "issue" of some saucy bint with a poor speaking ability who asked about taxes.
Also flag for the OP you sure did bring out the trolls with this one.
