Who are people like John Boehner talking about when he mentions Job Creators?
Thank you for using Numbers and Percentages in your Questions. I know it's generalized of me, but Democrats seldom use Accurate Numbers and Math.
You have.....approximately 2.7% of all returns filed were by people who Earned $250,000 in AGI (adjusted gross income-before deductions and such)
But, since you are obviously more learned than most, are you aware that Raising the Income Tax, 4%, on those Americans, which is what Mr. Bush Cut it, would only Increase Revenue by $40 Billion per year over the Last 10 years, or $400 Billion?
That has virtually No Effect on our Economy or our Entitlement Spending.
We would have to INCREASE taxation on the those Earning greater than $250,000/year to 100% of what they earn, to ALMOST cover our Annual Deficit projected for 2013.
Please, apply your exceptional Math Ability to the Problem and see if maybe Taxation is not the Answer to our Economic Woes, and that SPENDING is the Problem. And without SERIOUS adjustment to our Spending Habits, we are Financially Doom within a Generation or 2.
Thanks for a good question, and your concern.
Is it exaggerating to say that Republicans got their feelings hurt?
Republicans are genius at finding someone to blame beside themselves. The self named party of personal responsibility are anything but responsible.
They sound like a bunch of whiny children. Why don't they man up and admit that their laws, lack of oversight and corrupt president brought us to this mess, but they don't want to fix it. Why don't they want to put their names to this bailout? Because it is really a hoax and a blatant robbery of the US Treasury perpatrated by Bush and Paulson. Substitute smoking gun/mushroom cloud with economy/depression and you get the gist.
How long can a punch in the testicles continue to hurt?
|It should be okay. However, he may have a twisted testicle (very dangerous!!!) in which he will HAVE to go a see a G.P. This occurs if the spermatic cord is twisted due to an injury.
It is highly unlikely that it was caused by a tip, but to make sure, you should advise him to see his G.P. for clarification.
How do you prevent thongs (that strap between your toes) from hurting?
It usually happens when the thongs are new. as they get old, your feet get used to them and their sharp edges and rough corners become smoother.
Till then, you can either paste a plaster to cover the sharp areas of the thong or paste it between your toes (on the area that gets cut).
if you think this is too visible, you can even rub a little vasline (or oily moisturizer) between your toes or even on the strap of your thong to reduce the sharpness. :)
Why is John Mccain teaming up with President Bush?
You're going to remain frustrated if you think Ron Paul is ever going to get out of Texas. Good man but not presidential material, and never will be. He serves well right where he is.
John McCain isn't "teaming up" with President Bush. He's running his own campaign and, if elected, will run his own Presidency, but he will also welcome friendship and cooperation with both sides of the aisle, and of course with George W. Bush, who has a high respect for McCain even though they may not always agree.
Do your friends and family always agree with you? Don't you still like them and cooperate with them?
Can you hurt your back without realizing it? My lower back hurts when I go from sitting to standing.?
There is nothing wrong with going to the doctor, however there are some things you can do. The back hurting in that case is most likely an issue of sitting wrong.
Try the following:
- Basic Cobra Pose (based on Cobra Yoga Pose): Lay face down on a mat. Arms by your sides palms down. Keep your face down with your chin near your chest and lift your upper body up with your back muscles.
- Never lift with your back - always with your legs (if your legs aren't strong enough then do some leg workouts)
- (most important for a sitter like you) Lean over so your thighs touch your chest before you sit down. You'll be on a different part of your bottom when you sit. Sit on that part of your bottom every time you sit.
That stuff should help, but there are other things you can do and I know a great resource for further investigation. I will post a link below so you can dig deeper.
Good Luck with the pain,
Why did John Hospers feel we should respect human rights?
"No one is anyone else's master, and no one is anyone else's slave.
Other people's lives are not yours to dispose of.
No human being should be a nonvoluntary mortgage on the life of another.
Hospers sees these as three versions of the same absolute right of personal liberty."
Hospers learned his ideas from Ayn Rand:
"I found Ayn most insightful of all on the topic of rights. (I later
came to admire her paper "Man's Rights" more than any other, though it
was not yet written at the time of our discussions.) I had read much
on that topic, but Ayn's way of laying out the subject struck the
jugular in a way that nothing else did. And gradually I came to treat
more and more aspects of ethics and political philosophy under the
rubric of rights. It also drew my thoughts toward a different magnetic
pole: previously, my first question in evaluating a proposed law was
"Whom does it benefit and whom does it hurt?" whereas Ayn's first
question was "Does it violate anyone's rights?" http://johnhospers.com/Articles/Conversations1.html
But no where on Google could I find Hospers "reasons" for the basis of rights, and Rand would later come to despise and criticize Hospers for spouting platitudes without knowing the basis for them. "I’d rather vote for Bob Hope, the Marx Brothers, or Jerry Lewis," she wrote; "they’re not as funny as John Hospers and the Libertarian Party. If Hospers takes ten votes away from Nixon (which I doubt he’ll do), it would be a moral crime. I don’t care about Nixon, and I care even less about Hospers; but this is no time to engage in publicity seeking, which all these crank political parties are doing."
Human rights are based in "individual sovereignty" as defined by John Locke. Rand wrote about it, but Hospers never did. http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/individualism.html
"Individual sovereignty was not a peculiar conceit of Thomas Jefferson: It was the common assumption of the day;" http://www.friesian.com/ellis.htm
The human is individually sovereign because if he is not--then where do the rights come from which he gives up to the social contract? Apparently Hospers never figured that out.
Hospers would never be caught saying what Barry Goldwater said, but Goldwater is whom Rand supported in 1964. "I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them." Goldwater
What are 5 possibilities that could ruin or hurt Wrestlemania XXVII?
5 things that will hurt wrestlemania (in order of importance):
5. Rey Mysterio Winning Cody Rhodes, after such a great build up so far and Cody looking to be a future star, if WWE bury him like how sheamus is now then that will hurt WM a lot.
4. John Morrison, not allowed to do outrageous stuff, and him and ziggler given 5 mins of match time while people go for a pee break, they could steel the show, if given enough time.
3. if orton wins against punk, punk should get hes revenge on orton, its strange how people loved punk then, and when punk recaps they still hate him.
2. if triple h win against the Undertaker (im one of those guys that thinks takers streak should not ever end)
1. If Cena Wins, or if miz wins without rocks interference. (after all this build up everyone will agree that if rock deosnt do something in this match then that would be a big disappointment.)
it isnt your Achilles tendon.
it is a tendon/muscle you hurt
cold or heat on it, whichever feels better
stay off it best you can
crutch or cane will help keep the weight off
it will take a week to heal
if there is no improvement in 2 days see your doctor or go to the emergency room if your doc isnt available
David peace up, in Jesus amazing grace and prayer John chapters 3 & 10 it is past time to read the bible for you, but dont blame God ... things happen in life
What was the relationship between Eddie Guerrrero and John Cena?
No John Cena and Eddie Guerero were not really rivals in the WWE however they did have a little bit of a feud in 2003 on Smackdown. They were actually pretty close friends outside if the ring having a lot of respect for one another. They have both won matches against each other in their careers. No the WWE is nor fake. They are actually putting their bodies on the line every single time that they go out and wrestle. However why some people consider the WWE to be fake is because the matches are pre determined so the wrestlers aren't actually trying to beat each other but rather put on a show to entertain the fans. They do not actually beat up the refs it is all part of the plot in the match. The steel chair shots will sometimes hit the actually wrestlers but they do it so it hurts them as little as possible because the wrestlers don't actually want to hurt one another.
What are symptoms you get when you need Tommy John Surgery?
Pain in the elbow after throwing that doesn't go away after twenty-four hours might be something serious. Pain will commonly be produced if patient clenches his fist. UCL (Tommy John Injury) usually results in loss of elbow range of motion. Pain is usually more prominent in the overhead phase of throwing. Rest will commonly help, but if you think you have it you should visit a doctor.

Did slave revolts help or hurt the antislavery cause?
Slave revolts were the biggest fear of many southerners, not just the plantation owners. The efforts of John Brown and his kind hurt the efforts of the abolitionists because freed slaves would exert revenge on thse who owned them as slaves was also a fear of the southerners. The abolitionists in Kansas were so vehement that the bloody conflicts between abolitiomists and slavery people were alled "bleeding Kansas."
What are some quotes about loving someone you've hurt ?

“Love commingled with hate is more powerful than love. Or hate.” - Joyce Carol Oates
“Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate in their object-relations” - Sigmund Freud
“I love to love those who love to hate me and I laugh at the laughter directed against me.” - Leif Ericsson Leo Veness
“Love and hate can hold hands. Love and fear cannot.” - Dani Reynolds
“Love sees sharply, hatred sees even more sharp, but Jealousy sees the sharpest for it is love and hate at the same time” - Arab Proverb
“You love, you hate, you forgive, but you never forget.” - Steven Monaco
“Love secures, Hate destroys!” - Timothy John Waterhouse
who do you think will win at wrestlemania 28 the rock or john cena?
That's very hard to predict, but my guess is The Rock, unless it's a WWE Title match.
My pick is The Rock because this is his first one on one match back after 8 years absent. And he can't lose it or it will hurt his legacy. Not to mention, he's the hometown hero in this match. And Fans would be pretty disappointed if Cena beat him that night.
How bad does industrial ear piercings hurt? And, how long can i leave my cartilage earring out?
If you hate pain, an industrial is not a good idea. They hurt more than a regular cartilage piercing. They also require a lot of care and take several MONTHS to heal completely.
The cartilage piercing shouldn't close after a few minutes, but it's not a good idea to leave it out for more than a couple of hours.
John Deere riding mower, what kind of engine oil does it use?
Do not use 2 cycle oil in a 4 cycle motor!
Here is the general rule for John Deere. For motors with a pressurized oil system (those using an oil filter) use a multi-weight oil. JD oil is 10-30 but 10-40 is fine too. For non-pressurized systems use a straight weight oil. 30wt is the recommended oil.
Happy mowing......say, you missed a spot over there.
What were the major beliefs of John Calvin. How were they similar to Luther's beliefs?
For Luther, justification of faith was the shibboleth of the Reformation, but for Calvin it was the fear of the Lord, living in the presence of God in every area of life.
The sacrament of the Lord's supper was a key difference between him and Luther. Against Calvin, Luther taught the real presence in the Lord's Supper. Luther did not agree with the Roman Catholic dogma of transubstantiation, which teaches that "In the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist 'the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained'.... It is by the conversion of the bread and wine into Christ's body and blood that Christ becomes present in this sacrament" (p. 383 f. Catechism of the Catholic Church). Luther taught instead the doctrine of consubstantiation. In his Small Catechism, he defined the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper as "The true body and blood of our Jesus Christ under the bread and wine, for us Christians to eat and to drink." Its purpose, he continued, "is shown us by these words, 'Given and shed for you for the remission of sins.'...For where there is forgiveness of sins, there is also life and salvation." Luther stated that "Even though a knave takes or distributes the Sacrament, he receives the true body and blood of Christ, just as truly as he who [receives or] administers it in the most worthy manner. For it is not founded upon the holiness of men, but upon the Word of God."
Calvin criticized Luther's view because it involves a localization of Christ's presence. In a letter to Martin Bucer in 1538 he wrote regarding. Luther, "How foolishly he erred when he stated that the bread is the body itself." He also wrote to the Council of Geneva stating that he could not change his mind about Luther's view as he didn't want to betray the truth.
Calvin affirmed the presence of the living Christ in the sacrament of the Lord's Supper by the action of the Holy Spirit. Despite the vast distance of space between us and the ascended Christ, we are united with Him through the hidden power of the Holy Spirit. Calvin believed that Christ was "truly and efficaciously" present in the Lord's Supper, but in a spiritual sense, and through the mysterious intervention of the Holy Spirit, the communicant partakes spiritually of Christ's body" (cf. Institutes IV, 17, 18). He said at the Synod of Berne (1537), "Thus we must recognize that his Spirit is the bond of our participation with him, in such a way that he truly feeds us on the substance of our Lord's flesh and blood, to give us by sharing in them life and immortality. This communion of his flesh and blood Christ offers in his holy supper under the symbols of bread and wine, and he presents this to all who celebrate it duly in accordance with his lawful institution." Neither Luther nor Calvin changed their minds. For sound Scriptural reasons, Calvin could not accept Luther's view. This break with the Lutherans deeply hurt Calvin.
Who is John Murtha Endorsing for the Presidential Election?Will it Help or Hinder Who He Chooses?
John Murtha has no standing - this is a person who lied about how he got his purple heart and he was caught on tape considering accepting illegal money.
What were ways Thomas Jefferson supported John Adams?
they didn't support each other at all...in fact, they despised each other
Basically, in the 1800 election, Jefferson won over Adams, and Adams did all that he could to hurt Jefferson's administration way before Jefferson took the inaugural oath in March 1801<>
And even before that, Adams and the Federalist dominated Congress passed the Alien and Sedition acts which the Republicans were against. This formed an even larger rift between the parties than before. So, I definitely would not say that Jefferson supported Adams at all.
How did John F Kennedy's assassination affect the civil rights movement?
Your subject is very interesting. There is a lot of material and I really applaud you for taking on this topic.
To answer your question, the assassination of JFK helped the civil rights movement because it put LBJ in the White House. JFK himself was in favor of civil rights, but he was not very effective at working with Congress to get legislation passed. On the other hand, LBJ was a master at pushing legislation through Congress. Also, LBJ was probably more committed to civil rights than was JFK, so Johnson may have pushed the limits more than JFK was able or willing to. Kennedy supported the Civil Rights Bill, but he couldn't get it through Congress. When Johnson became president, he did a lot of arm twisting and politicking in Congress and he got the legislation passed as the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Johnson was a complex and flawed man. He was overbearing and arrogant, but he was also very insecure. He escalated the war in Vietnam on the flimsiest of grounds and caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans and Vietnamese during his terms in office. I could go on, but read it for yourself in the sources I've listed below.
LBJ was committed to end racism and he made the greatest progress of all of the presidents except, perhaps, Lincoln.
As for sources, look for books written by Bill Moyers, Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Robert A. Caro. Also, check the Wikipedia article and look at the sources cited there.
Is John MCCain the biggest threat to either Obama or Hillary in a a general election?
A McCain - Hillary matchup is the only one where i put money on the republican winning. She's not liked by indepedents... he does very well with independents, and ultimately those are the onse who decide most elections.
Romney is rediculously intelligent and compident, but he will be cast as a flip flopper, and he is a morman which will hurt.
Hukabee wont be able to win outside of evengelical states. Liberals and independens wont go for him and the liberatarian wing of the republican party wont vote for a non small governement conservative, especially after the atrocious spending record of the past 7 years.
Rudy is becoming more devisive and he has a really messed up personal life.
If Obama gets the nom, its his election to lose. McCain wont fare as well against him because they btoh draw independendts and dems are more excited about abama then repus are about McCain. Olso Obama will cast McCain as the establishment canidate. Hillary cant do that because she too is the establishment.
Is it true that John Cena and Randy Orton are really best friends in real life?
Much of the WWE is scripted (its all a big Soap opera) i mean just look at the memorials of people like Eddie. In the ring he was hunted down and "Hated" by the likes of Kurt Angle and JBL. However, in the memorials they show that this is just for the entertainment of the fans
For example. JBL in the ring hated Eddie to the point of brutalising him in various matches and yet Eddie played an important role at his wedding as best man
John Cena and Randy orton will crack each others heads open in the ring, but at the end of the day its all buisiness. Everyone knows that (for the most part) many of these wrestlers that fued wildly are the best of friends outside the ring
im not a doctor or anything but i just had the surgery about a month ago myself. So far i haven'tt had any pain what so ever i didn't even need any pain killers after the surgery. From what i have heard the most pain comes inphysicall therapy.I dont know if this helps or not but good luck
Is john cena hurt bad? What is his condition after the nxt attack?
You know I am sooo glad that I am not the only one who asked this. I know it is fake, but to me it is fun to watch. Well last night was hard to watch with the "Beating" but overall it is fun for me. I work full time, am a mother and a wife and have a full plate but I will tell you that when this show comes on, I watch! It takes me away from my daily life to watch something entertaining. I have so much on my plate that this is how I decompress. I don't need anything else to build my world around. The acting last night was somehting else and I sure do hope that no one was injured at all.
where can i find the film 'New York I Love You' to either watch online or buy in the UK?
try open www.freewatchtv.info
I know the site almost has everything, totally free and safe, no viruses, high quality, no surveys or hidden cost. International visitors welcome. Try it out, hope can help you.
Yep , it is pretty close , in fact it is probably better than the book .
The only thing is , the film is set with a few more futuristic sci-fi things in the background than George Orwell wrote in the book .
The book was set in a pretty grubby sort of city , because that was all that Orwell knew .
What was the meaning of the BBC horror, 'Whistle And I'll Come To You', shown this Christmas?
This is one of those sickening perversions of a great original work. In this case, it is a short ghost story, by M.R. James, the MASTER of ghost stories. I love the BBC but I hate how they constantly mangle the classics. Read the ORIGINAL story!!! Just read some M.R. James ghost stories instead of this offal. But I'm sorry for not answering your original question. I'm just a fanatical M.R. James fan. Read him and fall in love.
(Arggh... don't even get me started on the Masterpiece claptrap version of "Dracula"... ) In the original WAIWCTY, he was a Professor of Ontography.
P.S. The other great authors of ghost stories are E.F. Benson, Algernon Blackwood, William Hope Hodgson, Sheridan LeFanu, and Lovecraft.
That was about 40 years ago!
They don't do scholarships any more - they have far too many people willing to pay the whole fee.
Back then, hardly anyone could afford to go, so talented students were helped a lot.
It just doesn't happen any more. Sorry!
Every year RADA gets get about 4,000 applicants for only 24 places.
That's the same as all the other drama schools, by the way.
Start out playing the song, making sure you can nail it every time without thinking about it. Then play it again while singing the familiar parts, like the chorus or the bridge. Again, make sure you know as many of the lyrics and notes as possible or it will throw you off. Slowly add in more lyrics until you can play and sing at the same time.
I'm a huge Stephen King fan and other than The Green Mile...no film adaptations of his books ever did them justice, and I think the main reason for that is because King relies so much on OUR own imaginations to make the impact...he just sets the stage. Very few of his stories rely on in literal interpretations.
