    Default Anyone else donating food to the occupiers?


    I think we're nearly all part of the 99%. I boiled up 4 dozen hard boiled eggs and bought two boxes of Kellogg's Raisin Bran that I'm dropping off Downtown in a few minutes. I also have a couple of 2L bottles of diet soda. Not much, but every little bit helps. They are the evil Tea Party's virtuous twin.

    Maybe this time the grass roots movement will not be hijacked. This is how
    the Tea Party started, before they became politically beholden protectors of
    the wealthy controlled by special interests of many kinds, except the kind
    that demands reform of our financial system.

    well you certainly are not going to solve the problems by telling everyone
    to raise my taxes as the cure for every little think that pops into his
    head. Our population is corrupt, plain and simple. We have half the people
    paying no income tax at all, many of them taking money back via hidden
    welfare systems, and 60% of the people taking more in government benefits
    than they are paying in all taxes combined. Talk about corruption.

    Please don't forget the Tea Party is super-Christian which is not part
    of America. It is abhorrent to think the Government needs a religious
    side.

    Isn't that what the original settlers in America wanted to escape from
    --when they left?

    The Tea Party is only Christian when it doesn't involve Christian charity. I
    like the quote from Stephen Colbert which Michel has been using in his sig:

    "If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor,
    either we've got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or
    we've got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the
    needy without condition, and then admit that we just don't want to do it."

    The Tea Party is PSEUDO-Christian. Hypocrites. Religious posers, if you
    will.

    BTW, has anybody else noticed that President Obama recently started throwing
    around a lot more religious rhetoric than he used to?

    Maybe I am ignorant of the Tea Party, but my impression was that it
    was rather non-religious, though some of its members certainly are.

    > Isn't that what the original settlers in America wanted to escape from
    > --when they left?


    Actually, no. They came here to start their own religious monopoly.
    They had laws against breaking the Sabbath and colonists had to belong
    to their particular church, not just any one.

    I am not average, and he always wants to raise my taxes. I pay 60% of my
    income in taxes, all told. That is enough. MORE than enough.

    yes, 50%. do the research.

    I don't know if you re corrupt or not, but there is a good chance you are.
    Most of the 60% getting more benefits from all levels of government than
    they are paying for cannot justify such corrupt behavior, except perhaps in
    their own greedy minds.

    I'll stick to reading your posts on smoking. Meat.

    Have you ever made ricotta? I just saw this recipe today.
    http://www.notquitenigella.com/2011/...icotta-cheese/

    Made From Scratch: Fresh Whole Milk Ricotta

    2 litres whole pasteurised milk
    1 teaspoon salt
    4 tablespoons cream
    4 tablespoons white vinegar or lemon juice

    1. Place the milk, salt and cream in a heavy bottomed saucepan and
    heat until almost boiling. Then add the vinegar and stir it once very
    gently just to distribute the vinegar (constant stirring will result
    in tough, rubbery curds). Simmer for 1-2 minutes and then allow to sit
    for 10 minutes and most of the ricotta curds will float to the top and
    the whey at the bottom.

    2. Line a sieve with two layers of cheesecloth and place it over a
    large bowl to drain. Gently pour the ricotta mixture through the
    cheesecloth and the whey will separate at the bottom in a clearish
    yellow liquid and the soft and creamy ricotta will sit at the top.
    Your ricotta is now ready to use! If you want a more solid ricotta,
    drain for an hour or overnight. Keeps for 2-3 days in the fridge in an
    airtight container

    You do NOT "pay 60% of [your] income in taxes, all told." No one does in the USA. So, you are rich AND you're a liar. Maybe you could give us all insights into what rich people--who do not have to pay any mind to costs--eat. Of course, why should we believe you if you do, since you've already established that you lie?

    You do NOT "pay 60% of [your] income in taxes, all told." No one does in
    the USA. So, you are rich AND you're a liar. Maybe you could give us all
    insights into what rich people--who do not have to pay any mind to
    costs--eat. Of course, why should we believe you if you do, since you've
    already established that you lie?

    It isn't hard to pay a total 60% in tax if you count income tax,
    property tax, sales tax on purchases, fuel etc. I certainly come close
    to that.

    There was an article in the last couple of months in either CNN or
    MSNBC about the christian secret hand shake buzz words. About how the
    last president and other republican politicians used them consistently
    to gather votes and cash. The idea is to let christians know you are
    really one of the club and stand for all their values without actually
    verbally committing to them. I recently tidied my computer so I no
    longer have the article. I assume that Obama advisors have
    recommended that he begin courting these people. Although I have
    faith, I no longer call myself a christian. The name has been
    hijacked by people with values that disgust me.

    The highest income tax rates are 35%, and "for 2011, the maximum taxable earnings amount for Social Security is $106,800." Which means you don't pay SS taxes (4.2%) on any portion of your income above that amount. Many states have income taxes as well, but with all of the deductions and all, 60% is absurd. Warren Buffet recently stated that he was taxed at a far lower rate than his secretary. I'm sure the same applies to you.
    OOOOPS!, my bad. I forgot to include the huge personal property taxes on your yacht and your Bentley, and the real estate tax on your mansion. Poor you.

    60% is absurd. Warren Buffet recently stated that he was taxed at a far
    lower rate than his secretary. I'm sure the same applies to you.
    OOOOPS!, my bad. I forgot to include the huge personal property taxes on
    your yacht and your Bentley, and the real estate tax on your mansion. Poor
    you.


    you are leaving out property tax on business property and franchise taxes.
    And no, I don't have capital gains,unlike that hypocrite Buffet. I didn't
    even count sales taxes, gas taxes, utility taxes. Deductions? I have few,
    and they are phased out (a stealth tax rate).

    60%. Yes. Instead of calling me a liar, you should be saying "thank you".
    deadbeat!

    Yeah, I noticed that too. It's calculated to be just enough to keep the
    claims he is a Muslim in check and deny religious zealots a foothold where
    they imply that their god is on their side. Pure political theater.
