    I mean, to me, that is a relatively innocuous hypocritical image. I mean, the whole "Don't hit me, I'm a girl" part. I get that she thinks he's saying he should be able to hit women, but then, at first I read it as "We're equal, you have to give me what you have. But you don't get this 'Not allowed to be hit' card, that's mine."

    I don't actually know the girl in question at all. Certainly implying the dude is "rapist material" is way over the line; he posts dumb stuff like this pretty much on the regular, but it's never struck me as really beyond the pale -- but then, I'm also not a girl.

    I just find it hilarious that she totally blew up on him like she did. Not in an 'lol feminazi's, m i rite' kinda way, but just in an 'lol Internet' way.

    It's worth mentioning that folks around here who supported a guy that claimed over and over that he wouldn't raise taxes on the middle class are very casual about telling me to suck it up when they hear that my taxes went up significantly in 2012.

    I mean, yes. We need to close these loopholes. But, folks, your true attitude is showing a bit here. You guys really do want to raise taxes on far more people than just those in the top 2%.

    no, Spool. You're mad and it's making you a dick right now. Nobody secretly wishes you were getting the shaft.

    well, I am getting it. But I guess I'm also p mad. It's an expensive increase, and we weren't supposed to be doing that to people in my tax bracket.

    :( I should just move on.

    fuck, though. I really wanted to repair some shit around here.

    Maybe I'm belaboring the point, and I'll stop after this, but...

    It's your side that supports cutting incentives for people who actually need them.

    It's your side that thinks it's "fiscally responsible" to continually cut revenues while increasing spending.

    It's your side that thinks the answer to the problem they caused is to burden the middle class in order to protect those at the top.

    So this is what you get when you support that, and you don't listen to reason, and you force the conversation to be about how much we can cut instead of how we invest in our future.

    Everytime I've heard some Republican warglebargle about middle class taxes it's been the payroll tax holiday. Admittedly I missed the last couple pages of old chat so if that's not what we're talking about never miiiiiiiiiind.

    I never claimed I favored the tax credit going away for the middle class.

    I blamed it on the people who have been shouting that closing the deficit during a recovery is our most pressing economic issue.

    But we were supposed to close the deficit by making things harder on people who aren't me!!!

    You are confused. I'm not talking about the payroll tax.

    I'm talking about an obscure mortgage credit that I qualified for. It got rewritten and the change carved a couple thousand bucks directly out of my actual return. Not an increase in my taxable income.
