No, sorry you haven't you said I manipulated numbers and that is what a liberal would call a lie. You have posted nothing to refute the data I have posted. Your hatred of Trump gave us Biden so why don't you tell us exactly what Biden policies you support and why? It truly is easy supporting something that you don't have to pay for


I've got news for you pal, the American people gave us Biden and they gave us Biden in a landslide ...thank God the plurality of the body politic spoke the way they did. When Trump dragged his dick out of office his approval rating was an unprecedented 33%. Beyond horrible to say the least. Yesterday's poll shows Biden's approval rating at 63%. How does that make your balls twitch?

Yes indeed, Trump was a traitor, a serial liar, a blatant racist setting race relations back 50 years, and authored a pandemicide responsible for the needless deaths of over 400,00- Americans statistically proven by several scientific periodicals.

I have voted for far more Republicans than I have Democrats in my lifetime. So spare me your typical "liberal talking points" bullshit.

Landslide? He lost California by over 5 million votes and NY by 2 1/2 million votes so what was that landslide you are talking about? He lost the electoral college by 150,000 votes from Pa, Mich, Ga, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona. Now you going to tell me why you voted for Biden or did like far too many buy the liberal rhetoric and vote against Trump giving us Biden? Calling Trump a traitor is nothing more than hate rhetoric and opinion not supported by FACTS. China is our enemy not Russia unless like most liberals you think 143 million people is more harmful than 1.2 BILLION People

I don't know how any conservative could ever vote for Biden so don't give me that bullshit about voting for more Republicans because the vote that mattered was the vote for Biden giving us Harris a heartbeat from the Presidency

Your Payroll tax contribution was given to the Federal Gov't, borrowed by the federal gov't, used by the federal bureaucrats to fund things like the Vietnam War taking funds away from your retirement supplement and still you don't get it. It is stunning how you buy rhetoric that generates results that make you look like a fool
SO you are saying you have no trust in our Government
I understand what happened to the FICA taxes and that the Government " borrowed " the money to fund many things beside the war.
and that war was a waste of money , if they would of let us go in with out having our hands tied behind our back , should never have gone in there unless it was to win
you never knew from one day to the next what were the rules today, can we shoot there or did they move the line again
any way the money is suppose to be held in Government bonds that are suppose to be paying int. and when it is time they need to cash them in the government will have to find the money some where
Have a nice day

LOL, are you saying your dollars contributed to SS and Medicare weren't used for some other purpose thus creating a shortfall in what even you are entitled to? Why would you support raising taxes to fund the abuse of your Medicare and SS dollars that were spent on items other than SS and Medicare? Why is it you are having such a hard time understanding that FIT and CIT were created not to fund SS and Medicare but rather the discretionary items in the budget and more than enough revenue at existing rates are generated to pay for those items without a tax increase. You want to now reward bureaucrats for the abuse of your money

That is what Trump called his election A Landslide and it wasn't as big as Biden's
So if it was a landslide for Trump why isn't it a landslide for Biden
another one of your it is one thing for the Republicans but not for the Dems.
like when the Repuks do something it is a good thing and when the Dems do it it is a bad thing
Have a nice afternoon

GOD Da-- PLEASE go back to school and learn to read and get some reading comprehension
I did say it was used for other things , they took it and suppose to have put it into Government bonds that ONLY the SS fund can buy.
again what don't you under stand????
we have changed over the years and taxes like FIT CIT are not used for a certain thing. get over that , that was 50 years ago.
we have been putting everything into a general fund and all the Revenue is there and they take out mandatory spending first and what ever is left is for Dis. spending
and there are things about Medicare and Medicaid that I don't agree with.
I also do NOT think it is right for people to be living on welfare for years and years (if you could read and understand what you are reading you would have known that )
I think every state should have a residency law where you have to live in that state so long before you can get welfare and when on welfare you would have to prove you are looking for a job and if one came up you would have to take it or welfare would be cut off
so I do have a few conservative ideas I like that is why I post as an IND. not right or left.
and IF you want people to pay FIT on every dollar they make so should a large corp.
Have a nice day

OMG, it is you that needs schooling, why would you support raising Federal income and corporate income taxes to fund SS and Medicare that was "borrowed and never replaced? There is no accountability for the failures of the bureaucrats for using money that they weren't entitled to use. I am getting pretty tired of reading your bullshit.

NO OMG it is YOU who needs education
the FICA taxes were put on Budget and as they did for many years before that they took the excess funds and the Government forced them to invest in Government bonds that NOBODY else could invest in or buy so they knew it was in a secure place and it did get interest ( not open market type interest but interest , that is why I think the gov. should be paying the market rate on those bonds )
and YOU have to realize this has been happening for years and years get over it
and I said they should make large Corps that are making Million of dollars in US profits pay for the benefits they get from doing business in this country just like YOU want people to pay FIT on every cent they make because they get the benefit of living in this country

We're done, you are too hard headed to deal with, no understanding that the money contributed was used never repaid and now has to be replenished by Taxes that you want to raise never holding bureaucrats accountable for that abuse. The fact that it has been happening for years doesn't change the reality that FIT and CIT were never intended to fund SS and Medicare nor was SS and Medicare created to fund the general budget items. You want large corporations and individuals to repay the federal bureaucrats for their abuse of the SS and Medicare Trust fund, how liberal of you

Here learn something about the SS trust fund

Trust Fund contained (or alternatively, was owed) $2.908 trillion [4] The Trust Fund is required by law to be invested in non-marketable securities issued and guaranteed by the "full faith and credit" of the federal government. These securities earn a market rate of interest.[5]


according to the Gov. and SS trust fund there are 2.9 Trillion dollars in those Government bonds
so FIT is only PAYING BACK what the Gov. has " borrowed " from the SS fund in the form of those bonds

So when you retire do they pay you in gov't bonds? Where is the cash to pay those SS and Medicare expenses?? 2.9 trillion dollars in bonds that have to be converted to Cash, where is the cash coming from?

Absolute blowout landslide...the biggest landslide for a sitting president since Hebert Hoover...88 years ago. Your boy got absolutely annihilated...and he deserved it. My presidential election votes...

Ford, Reagan twice. both Bushes Perot and Dole. I voted for Obama twice, abstained in 2016 and voted Biden. My former party has turned to absolute shit.

As for your California crap, do you have any idea who leads the country in sucking on the federal government teat? Try Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, West Virginia, North Dakoda and Alaska....all fukking RED STATES. So much for your theory that Blue states are socialist commies...eh?

What are they paying it back with?? Why was it used in the first place? To fund the Vietnam War raise the taxes that pay for the war not using SS and Medicare funding.

Apparently being stupid runs in the liberal mind. How stupid am I? I wouldn't use a retirement supplement to fund other social spending

Why is it that liberals cannot debate the issues and buy rhetoric instead of focusing on results? I grew up a liberal but outgrew it when the results never matched the rhetoric. It is easy buying rhetoric when you live in your parents basement totally oblivious what is going on all over the country in liberal states and cities. Wake up

Yeah, no rhetoric there.

Not according to your posts especially as related to infrastructure, even SS and Medicare, tax revenue generated from taxes actually created. Try again

Go away. Troll somebody else.

Former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday said the "unemployed" former President Trump has nothing better to do than stir up trouble following his departure from Washington.

"Here's a guy who's unemployed, has nothing else to do but cause trouble. And clearly, it's obvious to me that he's not going away," Boehner said on "The View."

Boehner was asked by co-host Sara Haines when the GOP "wake-up call" was coming, given that many current elected Republican officials refuse to condemn the former president's false claims about 2020 election fraud which Trump repeated at a gathering of Republican National Committee (RNC) officials over the weekend.
===============================================================
How much I want Trump to keep dishing out the mindless profanity.
John Boehner is still one of the logical people to have worked in DC.

the pandemic isn't a death warrant, 25% of Americans are refusing to get the vaccine and your support for a President who doesn't support our veterans is quite shocking

It was the Pentagon's decision, thus your retarded argument is how the Pentagon does not support our troops. Skipping this beginning, so that you can cry about Biden, is pathetic. Seems to me the that the President is supporting the troops and the military chain-of-command.

And speaking of, I have already told you that you people don't get to exploit my troops anymore. They deserve far better than a citizenry who worshipped a traitor who routinely denigrated military service. You either supported the insults or shrugged. From this, you think you can recover and pretend to give a **** about any troop? I'm not going to buy that crap from you. You simply seek to deflect from your history and now exaggerate Biden over what the Pentagon actually ordered.


Your hatred of Trump is also quite disturbing....

Yeah, the military should love national traitors who denigrate them for four years, like you did. Most of the military disapproved of Trump by the summer of 2020:

2019: Half of active-duty service members are unhappy with Trump, new Military Times poll shows.

2020: Trump’s popularity slips in latest Military Times poll — and more troops say they’ll vote for Biden

2020: Joe Biden endorsed, Trump excoriated by nearly 500 retired top military, national security officials

How disturbing that so much of the military saw the traitor for what he was, huh? It must disturb you to know that if January 6 was a success and the military ever had to protect the country from Trump Nation, that you would be the enemy.

I am shocked that someone who claims to have served supported Hillary, Obama, and now Biden none of whom put America first.

Politicizing your nationalism is why you are such a poor example of an American and turned a blind eye towards treason. The only President not to put America first since Nixon was Trump...two Republicans. And with most of the military wanting Trump ejected from the White House for the damage he caused to America, your attempt to denigrate me amounts to denigrating most of the military. No wonder a national traitor is so appealing to you.

Paid any attention what is going on overseas or on our borders? Your hatred for Trump gave us a career empty suit public servant and a radical a heart beat way. You have no credibility

What you show is hate sells, hatred built on lies and distortions, Putting America first and stopping this country from being the world's policeman really bothers people like you who I doubt ever served anything other than themselves

Don't say we didn't warn you and others like you


And now you exaggerate the jobs issue, despite Trump and your right-wing Party wrecking jobs all last year.

The reason people prefer to be unemployed is that they are getting free money from the government. Were you not so eager to please your partisan god, you might discover that one of your conservative arguments about welfare is being proven. But this means chastising your own for what they did all last year, doesn't it? Trump and your right-wing Party has left you without a paddle.
