47% of you who clicked on this are losers. You probably ski Tahoe once in awhile, too.

Top Ten Signs Mitt Thinks You're a Loser...

10. didn't name your dog Seamus
9. married someone who only has one Cadillac
8. thinks the British did okay with security at the Olympics
7. took less than six years to apply for your current job
6. passes on karaoke while sober

Bueller?

I can't relate, because I am not even in the 47%. I predicted Mitt would win way back based on the power of the Mormon church. We shall see if you agree. I am not in the 47%, because I don't get a welfare check. Most of my neighbors do though. They are real 47 per centers.

The neighbors are too busy eating and staying indoors to ever get out to vote. Without pizza delivery their world would be shattered, and they might lose weight having to go to the store to get more food. They do, however, keep the plumbers in town busy reaming their sewer lines on a constant basis. They also keep the pain medication doctors busy.

Most of the 47% work.
Many of them work 2 jobs.
Mitt says they lack "personal responsibility".
Mofo.

I don't think it matters much what they say or do. Republicans vote Republican. Democrats vote Democrat. Unless their candidate is really out there like the Republicans were in the last elections. But ask any Republican, "Who is going to win this election?" and they will say, "Romney. . .by a landslide."

Can any Republican here on the forum prove me wrong?

I hope Obama wins, just for the hope of four more years without starting another war.

It doesn't matter who wins. The corporations control the country not the president pawn.

"save the children....." Save yourself!

Some of those neighbors I was talking about have children that they drag around all night all over town to do crank. How is that for a judgement OGT? You need to wake up and see what is really happening outside of your fantasy world that you live in.

Windy, if I lived in a fantasy world I wouldn't be where I am today.

Fantasy world? Who is the one always talking about aliens?

ECONOMIC SCENE
Yes, 47% of Households Owe No Taxes. Look Closer.
By DAVID LEONHARDT, Published: April 13, 2010
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/14/business/economy/14leonhardt.html?_r=0

"Forty-seven percent. That’s the portion of American households that owe no income tax for 2009. The number is up from 38 percent in 2007, and it has become a popular talking point on cable television and talk radio. With Tax Day coming on Thursday, 47 percent has become shorthand for the notion that the wealthy face a much higher tax burden than they once did while growing numbers of Americans are effectively on the dole.

Neither one of those ideas is true. They rely on a cleverly selective reading of the facts. So does the 47 percent number."....
"All the attention being showered on “47 percent” is ultimately a distraction from that reality."....

Good points. This shows many of the real impacts of the growing disparity between the ultra rich and the rest of us.

It would be helpful if all y'all would be more consistent with when you post. See, we got 15 posts per page and 7/15 = 47%. The dark background posters are obviously in the 47%, and me and Mitt would prefer not having to interact with you losers...

This is such a non-issue. If you live in California and can afford to own a house, you most definitely pay more than your fair share of federal income taxes. Dispite this fact, CA will no doubt fall to Obama, and was going to long before Romney was picked by the GOP. Go figure.

I guess the whole, "no political postings" rule has gone out the window, huh?

After years of dreaming about it, and now doing it I think it's called "Living the dream".

I recommend pinching yourself daily.
