According to Obama, Dad falls in the "corporate jet owner" category that is ruining the economy. TFM.

      ^this.

      Obama is going to kill a fragile executive-jet industry. Nobody is old enough to remember the luxury tax on yachts, but it absolutely fucked the yacht industry in the early 90’s (mostly repealed only 2 years later)

      I doubt it would kill it, if you are rich enough to have a jet then a luxury tax on it wouldn’t kill it.

      It wouldn’t kill it in the sense that the industry would default, but it would hurt badly. Example: luxury yachts demand plummeted after the luxury tax opposed in the 90s. I dont remember the numbers, but they’re out there (Im sure at least one media outlet will mention it). The rich can afford it, but during the yacht luxury tax era, they didn’t want to pay it.

      Disagree with Charleston – Not knowing about your government and its leaders views – good or bad. NF.

    And yet Bush has the rep for being dumb while Obama blames: atm’s, travel kiosks, and corporate jets. What a dumb ass. (Remember, someone had to program the ATM and travel kiosk then someone has to refill the atm sounds like 2 jobs lost and 3 gained.)

    Our president is horribly misguided. I find it quite hard to believe that the uppermost tax bracket has to shell out half of their income and hand it to the government, yet they are ruining the economy…ok?

    Obama is ridiculous, $250k/yr – “A Corporate Jet Owner”? $120k will get you a 25 hour rental at Netjets in the smallest plane they have*

    Obama doesn’t make policies that are good for America, just ones that are popular among most democrats. Most democrats are poor and are totally ignorant about the economy and finance. So, to remain popular, Obama has to enact policy that is destroying America. At least, this is what I’m hoping; he might just be some muslim shitstain trying to sabotage the USA.

      Actually the republican party is full of dumb poor people. Educated and upper middle to low rich flock to the democrats.

      By the logic of not giving credit for Osama’s death, then Osama should not get credit for September 11th since he only planned it and didn’t actually fly the plane into the building.

      Sorry to burst your W. circlejerking, but Obama is the one who ordered the raid that violated Pakistani sovreignty, and masterminded the plan.

      sorry but I don’t care what anyone fucking says. Obama didn’t know what happened until after it was done.

      Every time SEAL Team 6 wants to do something, they don’t call up the President. He gave SOCOM permission to do whatever the fuck they do (because he had no idea). The only ones deserving credit for the Osama kill are the operators on the ground guns in hand risking their lives.

      Can you please tell me how you know that Obama didn’t know what was happening? I mean he’s only the commander-in-chief. Is the picture of him in the room watching the developments not evidence enough to please you?
