    Weren't the individual income tax rates higher across the board under the Bush administrations?

    Much of the franchise revenue comes from TV and radio contacts. My cost to subscribe to MLB Extra Innings stayed the same after the Crawford and Gonzalez signings. $1 per game is still a great deal.

    Bill must be in the 1% if he think the Big O wants to take more from him. He's not looking to take more from me.

    But , if you'd rather have a newt or a mitt, I guess you are entitled to your opinion.

    Do you grade long term deals in the short term? Isn't it more logical to wait on those that underperformed out of the gate? Beckett  and Agonz had good years - what's the beef? Lackey and Dice-K got injured. One can also look at poor long term deals that other teams made over the years.

    It's not that liberals don't know anything, it's just that they know so much that isn't so!
    Sure lets tax the wealthy more, so they can pass that tax increase right on to middle-class consumers. Job creators who want to keept profit margins in the black have to absorb a tax increase somehow, by either charging more or hiring less.
    Don't you liberals get that? don't you know that lowering the corporate income tax rate will drive investors to invest more money, hence, create more jobs? Or is that just too complicated for you to understand? More jobs , more revenue, more investment, more revenue. Less regulation, more revenue.
    Let''s say you owned a business that made widgets with 10 employess, and you made 500K last year. Along comes a tax increase on capital gains and corporate rate cutting into your profits by 50%. What do you do? Raise the price of your widgets, or lay people off? Raising taxes on anyone is a job killer!
    I have an idea. Why don't we make everyone pay taxes, including the 47% who don't pay any, and actually get a refund because somebody wealthier pays it for them.

    Isn't there a political forum board somewhere around here. Conservatives, liberals, democrats, republicans - really? Who gives a cr*p, because I can tell you with 100 % certainty that none of them in DC, your State Capital or Municipal Capital give a cr*p about you. Survive as best you can and hope you make it to your death.

    There is only one Big O, and his full name is Oscar Robertson, who must have been long before Bill-806's time.   He is the only player in NBA history who overaged a triple-double for an entire season.

    The President, like the Congress, is trying to figure out how to reduce the deficit, and has taken nothing off the table--not Social Security, not Medicare, nothing.  The Tea Party and a large chunk of Republicans have, on the other hand, sworn a blood oath never to raise taxes or fees or anything of the kind. 

    These are tough times and both branches of government are wrestling with finding a reasonable solution.  Bill-806, meanwhile, is only interested in frivolity.
