1) President Bush 2 (as has been alleged by a certain partisan lunatic) never once targeted Iraqi civilians during the war. Yes, there were some unfortunate casualties due to collateral damage and all but these represented a tiny percentage of the entire death toll. The true fact of the matter is that 95-98% of all civilian deaths in this conflict came about from Iraqis killing other Iraqis. For certain people to try and equate this with FDR's intentional wholesale slaughter of innocents during WW2 is partisan idiocy at its absolute worst.............2) The progressives blather (demagogue, one might say) quite a bit about tax fairness. Mr. Obama has even decided to joined the fray. Unfortunately, they aren't very specific about what it means. I mean, yeah, they have in fact said that the top rates should go up and all but in terms of what percentage of the total tax burden that these wealthier individuals should pay, bubkas. Like, right now, for instance, the top 5% pay 59% of all Federal Income Taxes. Compared to the 32% of the total AGI that they make, that's a 1.8: 1 ratio. That's not fair?............3) And, yes, this is coming from a guy who thinks that we DO need to raise more in terms of revenue. I just don't like the divisive talk and the implication that these individuals aren't ALREADY kicking in a tremendous amount. I hate it in fact.
