    "We were the first to say..." the judge was wrong.

    First, who cares if they were the first? Second, way to take a stand.

    Republican administrations = Tax Cuts for the Rich and Wars.
    And we were NOT ALL for the Iraq war… at the time.

    Barry wasn't in the Congress when they "authorized" the Iraq war but Hillary and just about all the other Dems were for it

    A lot of people were. Powell was basically used as a puppet to trump it up.

    So since you got a tax cut while W was POTUS that means you're rich!

    Every federal income tax rate went down while W was POTUS and the lower rates went down more than the higher rates, so whenever anyone says tax cuts for the rich they are either an ignorant rube or just a liar.

    Was he really?

    He never said after the fact that the intelligence that he acted on was knowing wrong, at the time he believed it just like everyone else, and the Iraqis made sure everyone thought they had WMDs so the Iranians would be afraid of them, they just never thought the US would actually invade.

    OK, I'll concede that, however tax cuts are also historically more trouble than they're worth. Lower taxes don't necessarily create jobs or keep the poor fed. The nation paid the highest taxes during the Clinton administration; historically one of our largest eras of GDP growth.

    Ok, perhaps my term was a bit harsh. However, let's not act like a thorough review of that "intel" was performed before making the decision.

    You're mistaking revenue collected with income tax rates and they are not the same thing, when the Capital Gains taxes were cut while Clinton was POTUS, tax revenues increased even though the rate went down. Historically when rates are lowered revenue collections go up and when rates go up revenue collected goes down - ask NY & MD how much more they are collecting from their millionaire surtax they passed a couple of years ago - they're getting less money now than they were before because people moved.

    Never give the gov't any more money for any reason: money = power in the hands of the gov't and I don't care how much you want to suck the current POTUS's cock, some day there will be a gov't in power that you don't like and that power you happily gave the gov't that you loved, will be used against you by the new gov't.

    Maybe, but at the time everybody including most of the prominent Democrats & Republicans were for it - it was only guys like Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich who were against it at the time.

    I've always been interested in knowing why the intel was wrong, but two separate administrations haven't cared enough to figure out why, which means it was just an error and the info wasn't cooked to get a predetermined outcome otherwise once Barry became POTUS they would have been all over it.

    How about this as a comparison. Last night, we voted on the budget for our condo. The old fucks wanted to raise the association fees for everyone in the community. We as a board voted to keep the budget exactly the same. Our point being, the economy sucks and most younger people pay a mortgage and condo fees. The old folks own their condo so who gives a shit if they raise the fees, they only pay $250 a month to live there anyway? My point and the feeling of other members are, most people are hanging on by the skin of their teeth, if we raise the fees, we may lose another unit owner and lose more income and not be able to sell the unit. No units are selling and we are already at a 10% delinquency rate. I'd rather give people more wiggle room to continue living at our stupid community than risk owners walking away from their units.
