    Omama's bogus jobs and tax cuts:

    One problem is that these aren't broad tax cuts -- which have had a job-creating effect in the past. Rather, they're specific bribes to businesses for doing a few specific things -- like boosting their payroll over a certain level. The same approach was an utter failure under President Jimmy Carter in the late '70s.

    Worse, the credits -- a total of perhaps $33 billion -- are dwarfed by the tax hikes that Obama and the Democratic Congress are promising for next year. How many businesses will change the behavior for a small carrot this year -- when they know they're about to be hit by a far larger stick?

    Nothing but LIES comes out of this wonderland: Beautiful on the outside and crap on the inside.

    I like the view of the flag between the branches...it's almost as if the trees were pruned that way. I'm glad we haven't had snow like that in Toronto this year!!!

    This photo is lovely.

    What an extraordinarily beautiful photo. The lighting is ethereal. The snow in the yard looks like it could be our yard in Michigan... we just have to work on the house a bit : )
  • Michael Pierce 5y

    Makes me think, "We'll keep a light on..."

    Great photo.

    wow! what a beautiful Pic Pete! I love how the color comes from the flag flying above and the warm glow from the window! Very artistic!
  • futurebutterfly 5y

    This is so lovely! I can't get over how perfect the scene is.

    And why can't people just enjoy the pictures and not make political rants in the comments? No one here cares about your opinion on the issues. You're on a photography website. Take it somewhere else.

    Wow, the composition/framing is textbook.

    With all the smack people are talking about this administration, they should look at this image. Ol' Glory "is" flying and the lights "are" on upstairs. A superb image. Thanks for sharing.

    If Ostupid has his way...Ol Glory will be replaced with the flag seal of his image after he finishes shearing the words of the Constitution and declares himself Dear Leader for life.
