Rush Limbaugh may be a blowhard, but he is correct about "taxing the rich" to pay for unions that incentivize maintaining a failing system.
How is promoting the most tired propaganda tactic of all, class warfare, "waking up". I'd say it is just very backward revisiting of a tyrannical system justifying its existence with "the people" by demonizing the successful.
It's as old as human civilization, and has always produced the same results.
We'll see how successful CA is. I'd say it will be one of the first states to fall into riots and civil unrest. Maybe following the union controlled upper midwest. More taxes to answer problems of unsustainability= quick and potentially violent collapse


LOL. They have the first balanced budget again in a decade. CA is getting better...not worse.


LMAO. Well it sounds like they don't believe in "if it aint broke dont fix it". As the wealthy leave the state and the middle class pick up more slack, CA will continue to lead the charge in the downward spiral of backwards economic, social, and political momentum that is currently infecting the nation.


Yeah...I'm sure it will be cheaper to just move Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Napa Valley, and the Pacific Ocean to Texas BFE so the wealthy don't have to pay 3-5% more in income tax.

That's why Hollywood was located in Kansas during the Clinton years.

Turn the TV off and read a book.

The right would have you believe the rich are living worse than the poor. What insanity.

You do well in this country and then its all taken away by the government and given to the poor. Is that the general idea? Rich people are eating mac & cheese and renting apartments because they did too well in America and now the poor people took all their money?

F****ing dumb stupid Right wing republican mindsets, blaming the teachers and the poor and the sick and the needy.

Kind of terrible humans really. The opposite of what you would teach a kid to be. The opposite of empathy and compassion. The opposite of goodness.

More tax breaks for the rich!! They need it!! Retarded.

It doesn't make any sense to raise taxes on those who create jobs...

No one wants to address the real issue =

SPENDING.

, welfare and food stamps are out of control.

This is not a revenue issue, it's a spending issue. Liberals are pushing their same old agenda = Tax & Spend.

The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money. - Margaret Thatcher



yeah it doesnt make sense to raise taxes on those who create jobs? you mean like Romney and people such as himself, who dont create jobs but just shift jobs from America to 3rd world countries where they can get the same products made for next to nothing threfore massively increasing their wealth and leaving sometimes hundreds or even thousands jobless in first world countries. What benefits do these ''job creators'' bring to the economy of their own countries while they are stealing jobs from their fellow countrymen. And thats exactly what they do, steal jobs from people and send the work to cheaper labour places

Rich send jobs overseas... because that allows them to save more money to make more jobs over seas and to sell at a markup. they do not care if jobs are lost here... they just care about maximizing their profits if this country falls they just move to another country... how many business headquarters were moved to china again??

We would not have that many people on welfare and taking food stamps IF THERE WERE JOBS HERE AND NOT SENT TO OTHER COUNTRIES BY THE RICH who ask for tax breaks to create jobs in OTHER countries.... and then to sell at a markup here and not to mention hiring people at low wages to sell said products here..


It is insane to continue to DEFEND the job creators when the fact of the matter is that if those RICH job creators did not have such a monopoly on every service or industry many common people could get into those markets and make a living.

An easy example is walmart. They exploit cheap labor in china then they exploit cheap labor here to work in their stores. Then they use that money to expand this model and turn small business owners of markets and delis into minimum wage employees. then all the kids and elderly hired by those small business owners are out of jobs because all the minimum wage jobs they used to work during college and when they are elderly are going to grown adults with a family. Not to mention how they shaft you on benefits.

Yes lets give Rich people like that tax breaks to continue expanding and creating crappy jobs or sending our jobs over seas.
The idiocy of some people.

This is the result of propaganda videos like that when you brainwash people into thinking all rich people are evil

When Class Envy Kills

A devoted mother of three on Manhattan’s posh Upper West Side, came home one evening to find that two of her beloved children suffered a gruesome murder by the family’s trusted nanny. Emerging facts indicate that class envy may have been the motive.

Look over there!!

Ending the tax breaks for the 1% is not raising taxes on job creators, it is simply ending the tax breaks for the wealthy. There are many real issues but if we can't be honest about calling tax cuts=raising taxes we can't ever get to the rest. Placing blame everywhere but accepting none isn't working, nor is it being honest.

Thank God Republicans are losers. Thank God they lost. Thank God that Rush is a has-been and NOT the voice of the majority. Thank God there are more compassionate, fairminded, informed people in this country than there are money worshipping, intolerant, unempathetic, uncompassionate, misinformed people. Thank God for all that. There is hope in America still because republicans lost. There is still hope this place can be a place of equality and tolerance for all because Republicans lost. Not only their election, but more importantly, the republican conservative attitude is a total loser here. It loses in America because this country is better than that.

I agree, they are losers and foul examples of humanity.

I have never in my life felt hatred for people until I discovered the conscience of a conservative.
It is what guides a child when they are not raised well and taught that they are the center of the
universe.

A historical perspective may be enlightening. Let's look at what the Republican platform of 1956 said, and compare to the vitriol that Rush Limbaugh's sorts spout today. This is the mainstream of 1956 Republican attitudes.



The Eisenhower Administration has brought to our people the highest employment, the highest wages and the highest standard of living ever enjoyed by any nation. Today there are nearly 67 million men and women at work in the United States, 4 million more than in 1952. Wages have increased substantially over the past 3 1/2 years; but, more important, the American wage earner today can buy more than ever before for himself and his family because his pay check has not been eaten away by rising taxes and soaring prices.

The record of performance of the Republican Administration on behalf of our working men and women goes still further. The Federal minimum wage has been raised for more than 2 million workers. Social Security has been extended to an additional 10 million workers and the benefits raised for 6 1/2 million. The protection of unemployment insurance has been brought to 4 million additional workers. There have been increased workmen's compensation benefits for longshoremen and harbor workers, increased retirement benefits for railroad employees, and wage increases and improved welfare and pension plans for federal employees.

In addition, the Eisenhower Administration has enforced more vigorously and effectively than ever before, the laws which protect the working standards of our people.

Workers have benefited by the progress which has been made in carrying out the programs and principles set forth in the 1952 Republican platform. All workers have gained and unions have grown in strength and responsibility, and have increased their membership by 2 millions.

Furthermore, the process of free collective bargaining has been strengthened by the insistence of this Administration that labor and management settle their differences at the bargaining table without the intervention of the Government. This policy has brought to our country an unprecedented period of labor-management peace and understanding.


In 1956, Republicans believed that increasing wages to the average worker was an excellent idea and a desired outcome of Republican economic policy. Today, they are demonized as the "takers" and strangely enough, the people who order the others are called the "makers".

In 1956, Republicans believed that unions gaining in strength and responsibility was a desirable outcome.

In 1956, Republicans believed in sensible collective bargaining without government intervention. Today, Republicans believe in government intervention to kneecap unions.

In 1956, Republicans believed in programs which improved and enforced job safety for workers. Today, they call it "nanny state bureaucrats".

In 1956, Republicans believed in perfecting and improving government assistance to older workers, handicapped, minorities and migratory workers. Today, they call them parasites.

In 1956, Republicans believed in strengthening unemployment insurance. Today Republicans such as the 2012 Presidential candidate called the unemployed to be lazy scum for having to go on unemployment when their jobs are outsourced.

In 1956, Republicans believed that workers should be assured of rightful pension benefits and protected by law. Today, companies routinely loot whatever remaining "pension plans" which exist. Shall I continue?

Republican platform of 1956:


Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of Sex;

Clarify and strengthen the eight-hour laws for the benefit of workers who are subject to federal wage standards on Federal and Federally-assisted construction, and maintain and continue the vigorous administration of the Federal prevailing minimum wage law for public supply contracts;

Extend the protection of the Federal minimum wage laws to as many more workers as is possible and practicable;

Continue to fight for the elimination of discrimination in employment because of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry or sex;

Provide assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial
unemployment;


In 1956, Republicans believed in extending the minimum wage law as far as possible. Today they wish to repeal it.

In 1956, Republicans believed in fighting employment discrimination. Today, they acknowledge and fight only for "reverse discrimination" and regularly incite racial discord with sneering jibes about "affirmative action".

In 1956, Republicans believed in...well I can just quote directly: "assistance to improve the economic conditions of areas faced with persistent and substantial unemployment". Today, Republicans provide assistance for bankers---and complain about the "takers" among the masses of persistent and substantial unemployed.

In 1956:


Republican action created the Department of Health, Education and Welfare as the first new Federal department in 40 years, to raise the continuing consideration of these problems for the first time to the highest council of Government, the President's Cabinet.


Today, Republicans think that "Welfare" is an insult instead of a national responsibility.

In 1956...


Through the White House Conference on Education, our Republican Administration initiated the most comprehensive Community-State-Federal attempt ever made to solve the pressing problems of primary and secondary education.

Four thousand communities, studying their school populations and their physical and financial resources, encouraged our Republican Administration to urge a five-year program of Federal assistance in building schools to relieve a critical classroom shortage.

The Republican Party will renew its efforts to enact a program based on sound principles of need and designed to encourage increased state and local efforts to build more classrooms.


Today, Republican believe in eliminating Federal and local public funding of education.


In 1956,


Republican leadership has enlarged Federal assistance for construction of hospitals, emphasizing low-cost care of chronic diseases and the special problems of older persons, and increased Federal aid for medical care of the needy.




Today, Republicans wail about "Obama care".



We have asked the largest increase in research funds ever sought in one year to intensify attacks on cancer, mental illness, heart disease and other dread diseases.


Today: nope. Tax cuts for the rich.



We have supported measures that have made more housing available than ever before in history, reduced urban slums in local-federal partnership, stimulated record home ownership, and authorized additional low-rent public housing.

We initiated the first flood insurance program in history under Government sponsorship in cooperation with private enterprise.

We shall continue to seek extension and perfection of a sound social security system.


Today, Republicans sneer at HUD, Fannie Mae, and the Community Reinvestment Act, and circle leeringly around Social Security.



We will vigorously promote, as we have in the past, a non-political career service under the merit system which will attract and retain able servants of the people. Many gains in this field, notably pay increases and a host of new benefits, have been achieved in their behalf in less than four years.


In 1956, Republicans believed in non-political civil servants making good pay and benefits. Today, Republican political appointees roll over career non-partisan government employees and cut their jobs, pay and benefits.




Revise and improve the Taft-Hartley Act so as to protect more effectively the rights of labor unions, management, the individual worker, and the public. The protection of the right of workers to organize into unions and to bargain collectively is the firm and permanent policy of the Eisenhower Administration.


Do I need to comment further?

It's just irresistible.

In 1956, Republicans believed in:


That a pension program for disabled war veterans in need and for their widows and orphans in need be maintained as long as necessary to assure them adequate income;

That all veterans be given equal and adequate opportunity for readjustment following service, including unemployment compensation when needed, but placing emphasis on obtaining suitable employment for veterans, particularly those disabled, by using appropriate facilities of government and by assuring that Federal employment preference and re-employment rights, to which the veteran is entitled, are received;

That the Veterans Administration be continued as a single independent agency providing veterans services;

That the service-disabled continue to receive first-priority medical services of the highest standard and that non-service disabled war veterans in need receive hospital care to the extent that beds are available.


In 1956, Republicans belived in:


We favor self-government, national suffrage and representation in the Congress of the United States for residents of the District of Columbia.

We recommend to Congress the submission of a constitutional amendment providing equal rights for men and women.

Today, these are considered "hard-left" positions and there isn't any serious movement among even national Democratic politicians to advance them.

In 1956, Republicans were proud of the following:


Segregation has been ended in the District of Columbia Government and in the District public facilities including public schools, restaurants, theaters and playgrounds. The Eisenhower Administration has eliminated discrimination in all federal employment.

Great progress has been made in eliminating employment discrimination on the part of those who do business with the Federal Government and secure Federal contracts. This Administration has impartially enforced Federal civil rights statutes, and we pledge that we will continue to do so. We support the enactment of the civil rights program already presented by the President to the Second Session of the 84th Congress.

The regulatory agencies under this Administration have moved vigorously to end discrimination in interstate commerce.


Today, Republicans politicans regularly make coded anti-minority accusations and Rush Limbuagh's sort call black Americans "racist" when they (as a direct consequence, and quite rationally) vote 90% for the other party.

In 1956:


Barriers which impede international trade and the flow of capital should be reduced on a gradual, selective and reciprocal basis, with full recognition of the necessity to safeguard domestic enterprises, agriculture and labor against unfair import competition. We proudly point out that the Republican Party was primarily responsible for initiating the escape clause and peril point provisions of law to make effective the necessary safeguards for American agriculture, labor and business. We pledge faithful and expeditious administration of these provisions.


Today, Republicans believe in unrestricted outsourcing and trade with low-wage unfree Communist nations regardless of reciprocity, and have dismiss any concerns about (especially) labor or "unfair import competition".

Rush is a moderate and purposefully created a character of himself as a self-promoting blowhard.

Schools were founded in the US to teach one language and the three 'R's, which brought people from multiple countries together as one nation speaking one language.

It's not my responsibility to pay for my neighbors' kids schooling. It's not my responsibility to pay for my neighbors' dog food. It's not my responsibility to pay for my neighbors' healthcare. I have no obligation to pay for my neighbors' expenses. If the neighbor sent some thugs to take my money, or worse half my paycheck from my family to support his family, that's simply corruption, theft, and thuggery.

Someone wants to steal money from my family so their kid can take classes can kiss off. I don't care how much less they earn or how much more I earn, it's simply not my problem.

*sigh*
so the wealthy people don't need to help anyone, they don't need to pay for someone's bills and debts and food and what not, right?

But when those rich people's businesses are on the brink of failure its a different story right?
We as a country MUST come together and pay there bills because they are "to big to fail" which is total and complete BULL, maybe if our tax money didn't go to a private bank (the fed) and they didn't decide to help the rich buddies they have we would have a true FREE MARKET were businesses make it or don't depending on how they run it, and we know the banks and corporations that we bailed were NOT doing good business. If you don't know how the corporations and banks failed i will give you examples of the kind of corrupt business they were doing just to increase profit's for themselves not the over all business itself.

Yeah we shouldn't help poor people and unfortunate children that need real help
BUT WE SHOULD HELP the rich keep there businesses afloat with tax money and then sit there and let them give themselves RIDICULOUS amounts of so called "bonuses"(with out tax money) for doing such an outstanding job.

Reading the posts from the left is......exhausting, but hilariously funny.

It only proves that it doesn't take much to convince somebody to repeat talking points, hot air or desperate inferences so long that they're unmeasurable.
