Legal Despite doing what I think are some great things for the American people, the Obama administration has a dark side. Joe Biden and many others on staff come straight from the RIAA camp, and it shows. Today, the Obama administration disregarded every US law relating to theft and copyright by stating that piracy is "flat, unadulterated theft".

Taxes are down ... that's hilarious!

And yes, that's exactly what I was hinting at.

I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic.

In case you aren't please see this article:

Taxes are at their lowest levels in 60 years, though I can see how some of the propaganda out there today would lead you to believe otherwise.

It's a common misconception among people unfamiliar with tax policy (e.g. the tea party "antitax movement").

I am sorry that some of us are not delusional robots that need FOX news to tell us how to think. Those of us with more than 2 working brain cells use this great ability that has been around for ages; independent thought. Try it sometime if it doesn't give you a headache.

Sorry for being rude, I just have no tolerance anymore for extreme stupidity, which you seem to suffer from. It is sad that people this woefully uninformed, ignorant, and downright dumb, can vote. It is the one failure of democracy that the idiots are allowed the same vote as those that actually take the time to inform themselves.

You would think a movement centered around taxes would at least spend the whole 2 minutes figuring out taxation levels. Fucking hell, the Idiocracy is here folks, enjoy.

I agree in principal, but in practice it would be reminiscent of the "literacy tests" which were once employed to suppress the black vote.

How could you quantify idiocy without a test of some sort, and how can you solve the problem of the inherent bias of any standardized test?
