    I'm definitely going! I want Obama impeached and I want taxation without representation again as it was when 1773 rolled around!

    2. I agree with Chance
    3. They will be peaceful.

    I am actually really excited to see the extra interest. I am encouraged that people are getting involved and interested in government.
    School? Blow off school. The end days are coming. Obama is bringing on the end days even faster so your education won't mean anything.

    Better put your tin foil hat on so the aliens don't access your brainwaves.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Looks like Texas, not South Carolina, is going to fire the first shot this time around.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    His facial expressions really remind me of Bush II

    I'd be interested in knowing what percentage of people (working, total) are actually in a situation where they owe taxes come tax time. Also, when was the last time we actually had a tax increase on working income?

    I agree that the amount of deficit spending is ridiculous and will cause long term damage. But too suddenly blame it on Obama and the Democrats is beyond hypocritical. When Clinton left there was a surplus, Bush ran the deficit up like nobody ever has before. This is clearly a problem both parties help create.

    Also, if you truly believe the deficit and national debt are major concerns, there has to be a combination of major spending cuts and tax increases to bring them down. To pretend we can continue to cut taxes in order to increase revenue enough to deal with the debt problem is ridiculous.
    You are 100% correct in the fact that some of this spending is Bush's fault and as Matclone pointed out (i believe in this thread) don't forget about the roll of congress in this.

    I don't know about the rest of the country but a lot of the local radio shows here in Phoenix spoke out against all the spending that Bush did as well so this isn't just about Obama.

    I think Bush and the 2006 congress started this and Obama/this congress took it too another level.
