Hannity? Racist? Repetitive and annoying at times, yes. But how is he a racist?

Repetitive in nature he is. Did you watch his never ending coverage of the good pastor Wright. I won't go into those unsubstantiated and supposed ridiculous terrorist ties with Ayers. Not to mention him trying to proclaim Obama as a muslim extremist. After viewing his rants it is quite easy to infer that he indeed is a racist. In addition: remember all his hype about a video that was to show Michelle Obama saying "whitey". Never surfaced, yet he ranted endlessly about it. Sean Hannity is is the heart and soul of the tea bagger movement with Rush Limbaugh as the leader of the Republican party.

i see why this site warns about possibly life-threatening things happening from the advice here. the TEA parties were not partisan. the one i attended had quite a variety of people and views from liberal thru conservative. I think most folks feel frustrated by our so-called representation in DC. many of us see bailouts and tax cuts for people who already don't pay taxes as a slap in the face. especially those of us who are self employed or small businesses. everyone benefits from the taxes paid in the US. so, everyone should pay something, IMO. regardless of how much or how little, we all should owe something in return for the benefits we get as a society. (Unless you are totally disabled or have no possible way to contribute in any way- i am referring to people earning a paycheck, so don't accuse me of being a heartless republican.) I think we're ready for other options in leadership. there is no difference between Repub and Dems anymore. they are all the old boys and they all need to get outta town!

I don't quite see it that way. The bailouts were for corporate America and since when did someone not earning a paycheck receive a tax cut. I have to disagree with there being no differences between being a a Republican or Democrat. I'm not buying it. I certainly would not identify myself with Rush Limbaugh or those news hacks at FOX News who sponsored those infamous Tea Bag parties.

so, all those people who got "stimulus checks" all were tax payers? i don't think so. people who paid no taxes even got those. i call that a handout or welfare. And what about Mr O's plan to make sure that an increasing and significant number of wage-earners won't pay taxes under his plan? This creates class struggles and puts the burden of taxes on fewer and fewer people. That isn't right. i'm not wealthy but i want to earn my own way and so should everyone else. Socialism has not worked in Europe and we don't need it here.

FYI Limbaugh does not speak for me nor do any of the extremists elements of the GOP. These rantings (I said and meant rantings cause they sure are not 100% factual well established media information)

The type of governess these nut jobs would bring would be fascist. And I am a registered Republican.

You are referring to the Bush stimulous checks I presume. My understanding was that in order to receive one, a person had to be working. Obama is targeting anyone making above $250k per year. And even then the rate goes back to the Clinton era tax rate. It is high time that the rich start paying their fair share of taxes and stop complaining. I argue that the Bush tax cuts were the opening salvo in creating class struggles in this country. The tax cuts were tailored for the rich.

I agree. The problem is there is no one leading the GOP, which has created a leadership vacuum. And because of this, the perception is that Rush Limbaugh has become the defacto leader the Republican party. It also appears that the extremist elements of the party are what people see and percieve to be its platform. Somebody needs to step up to the forefront and right the party.

You can't be serious! Here's some information from the IRS:

Top 1% of wage-earners pay 34.27% of taxes
Top 5% of wage-earners pay 54.36 % of taxes
Top 10% of wage-earners pay 65.84% of taxes
Top 25% of wage-earners pay 83.88% of taxes
Top 50% of wage-earners pay 96.54% of taxes
The bottom 50% of wage-earners pay less than 4% of taxes.
Sources: Internal Revenue Service
Tax Policy Center
Tax Foundation

I bet you'll never see the above information on CNN.

$250k? I'm not sure about that. He seemed to jump around on the amount during the campaign. It fluctuated between $250k and $150k.

"Rich" is $250k? Where did he come up with that number? Who determines who is 'rich'? It's a relative term. Someone earning $40k a year may seem rich to someone earning $20k a year.

Compared to the way his brother is living in Kenya, we are ALL rich.

What kind of system is it that punishes a person for being successful? Why should a person who works hard to build a business have to pay a higher percentage of taxes than someone who hasn't worked as hard as him?

Oh, and about the Bush tax stimulus checks. For all the whining and complaining I heard from the liberals, I have yet to hear of even one of them returning their stimulus check to the treasury dept.

In my business, I'll never be one of those rich people making $250k, but I still think it's wrong that the liberal media makes them out to be such bad people.

Just my 2.5 cents.

Make more then you should pay more. Are you saying someone who makes $250k should pay the same amount in tax as some one making $20k. All is relavant. Keep watching FOX News as they surely cater to your beliefs about taxation. As far as the Bush stimulous checks, I accepted it as wasteful and not needed. Those checks did nothing to stimulate the economy or head off the September crash. A round of tea bags for you.

Why should someone who makes more pay more?

I think the no tax level should be raised
But what makes it more relevant for someone who makes more $$ to pay more taxes?
This is where creative tax shelters & loopholes come in
And as a result many people who make more $$ pay less in taxes

With the bailouts of Chrysler and GM, the government will mandate more fuel efficient, smaller cars, that have a lower profit margin. With gasoline expected to be only 2.50 per gallon, Americans will purchase the full sized models. Now we have Chrysler and GM and their assets tied up in inventory on cars that do not sell.

When this time comes, either another bailout or the government will tax gasoline where it is no longer as affordable and force us to buy the small cars.

mjbxx, In order to receive a stimulus check, you needed to have at least $3,000 in qualifying income. Wages, self-employment, Social Security benefits, Railroad Retirement benefits, and veterans' disability compensation, pension or survivors' benefits received from the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2007. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) did not qualify toward the 3000. You did not have to work.
