That isn't exactly what he said
by Diana Forum moderator / October 26, 2008 3:43 AM PDT

He said that, if Joe really did make more than $250,000 a year (remember this is net not gross), it would help his workers (those behind him) do the same thing. I doubt if a small plumbing business will net $250,000. I can see that as gross.

My ex was in construction and his gross was very large but he sometimes didn't make as much net as his workers (esp. in the beginning).

that was then this is now..... quoting a regular contributor

to SE.

which in this case is you. That quote is from your recent response regarding campaign finance laws re: McCain

McCain stays pace and changes according to the situation. The underlying argument against that he is a Bush clone. 'Bush-clone' has been an effective strategy to rally the Obama choir.

If he was a Bush clone in my estimation; I would not be voting for him. I never voted for a Bush. I vote for the person and their record not the ideology.

Other voters decide differently.

Emotion and reason are at war in this particular election

I was being sarcastic

The McCain campaign took advantage of loopholes in his own campaign finance reform bill to deck Palin out in $150,000 worth of new duds. Now it turns out he was for taxing the rich before he was against it.

Ironically, the McCain of 2000 is a guy I just might have voted for. It's a shame that John McCain is nowhere to be found these days.

I ask friends that support Obama: would you vote for him if he was the Republican nominee. McCain?.. if he was the Democrat.

I get interesting results.

I didn't think you were being 'that serious' in your OP. I do believe that one must also find the faults in their candidate. Role-reversal is very revealing.

And what version of Obama are we at now? Certainly not Obama pre-2007

If the 2000 version of John McCain.....

....had run and gotten the nomination in 2004, I'd have seriously considered voting for him. Heck, if that John McCain had run this year (and made a better choice of running mate) he might have had a shot at my vote too. But the McCain running now is someone barely recognizable as John McCain in my opinion.

Biden lowers the "Tax'em!" from $250K to $150K
by James Denison / October 29, 2008 3:07 AM PDT

As I expected, but not till AFTER the election, Obama and Biden keep lowering the ante for slamming "the rich" with extra taxes. I wonder if they'll add an Affirmative Action deduction as part of "Redistribution" aka Afro-Centrist "Reparations"?

Would that be...
by J. Vega / October 29, 2008 4:20 AM PDT

Would that again be per family, or in the case of a married couple who both worked, $75K each? It seems like the level goes down, and down.
I also can't help but notice that sometimes it's a tax cut, and sometimes it's no increase in taxes. It reminds me of the old carnival game "Razzle-Dazzle".

...matter what figure they say. It would be nice if they'd just pick one and stick with it. Obama's going to change everything he's said after the election, as it pleases The ONE.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
