Had to go with the President, but I loved Ellen's quote. She got so much shit this year and handled it really well.

it really does expose how pathetic those anti-gay groups are when they try to rally for public support

neonxstardust 31st-Dec-2012 05:57 pm (UTC)
Yep, fuckery of the highest order.

I'm trying really hard not to, but certain parties that live in my house are obsessed and debate about it literally all day. D-:
mandramoddle 31st-Dec-2012 06:01 pm (UTC)
I've heard there's going to be a tax increase for us, and pay raise for politicians. But that's what my Conservative friends were saying. I'm still a little confused by it all. :|
lachica2000 31st-Dec-2012 06:33 pm (UTC)
They pay raise is .5-1% and for (most) federal employees, the asshole politicians just happen to be included. Federal employees have been under a pay freeze for years.
im_chris_hansen 31st-Dec-2012 08:53 pm (UTC)
i dunno if it's necessarily new taxes. just that all the deductions that we got to take before won't be allowed again this round. so, our returns will be much smaller than before.
forcestrong 31st-Dec-2012 09:54 pm (UTC)
That's not really the most worrying part. At least, not the only worry.

In order to force themselves to make a decision about the tax cuts Bush enacted, which expire very soon, Congress passed a temporary extension that orders cuts to many programs and gov't agencies. The plan was to hurt things both parties want, so they'd be motivated to negotiate a deal before that happens.

This means there are gov't employees who are going to be sent home w/o pay until their funding returns. And the stuff they are supposed to do won't get done, like mailing out Social Security checks to people who depend on them, perhaps. This messes with the economy; consumers with less money to spend, business unwilling to hire because of stalled growth, etc. So we could tumble into another recession if the spending cuts last too long.

So yea, our taxes will go back to what they were pre-Bush. But we risk going back to what things were like in '08-09, which hurts more than not getting a $1,500 refund.
im_chris_hansen 31st-Dec-2012 06:02 pm (UTC)
yeah, im invested because im curious to see which taxes i get to write off
venetianglass 31st-Dec-2012 06:03 pm (UTC)
last i saw, they're probably gonna pass a temporary measure today and then hope for something more long term before that runs out.
therearewords 31st-Dec-2012 06:29 pm (UTC)
I just read that there are "positive sounds" coming from Washington about the subject and that there will be a press conf later.
megisthesex 31st-Dec-2012 06:34 pm (UTC)
yes and its beyond depressing
poop_of_death 31st-Dec-2012 07:09 pm (UTC)
NO I HAVE BEEN LOST! Can you give me the run down?
brucelynn 31st-Dec-2012 05:55 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year OP

vehiclesshockme 31st-Dec-2012 05:55 pm (UTC)
I love that so many of these are by or about the President.
im_chris_hansen 31st-Dec-2012 08:54 pm (UTC)
i wonder if People Mag sees higher mag sales when he's featured?
kiki3291 31st-Dec-2012 05:56 pm (UTC)
I feel like there were a lot better quotes this year, lol.

It's a weird way to calculate the best ones since a lot of these were grouped with not so great ones.

Here for all of Obama-related quotes though.
im_chris_hansen 31st-Dec-2012 08:55 pm (UTC)
People's standards are pretty PG PG-13, so i know there were better quotes that usually come celeb twitter accounts where they can be unfiltered
showmesara 31st-Dec-2012 05:57 pm (UTC)
Happy New Year! I voted for Ellen's quote.

OT: Getting drunk all by myself, because I can
venetianglass 31st-Dec-2012 06:03 pm (UTC)
i'm outta booze. really want to go out and get more, but i'm expecting a delivery and refuse to leave my apmt until it arrives.
showmesara 31st-Dec-2012 06:18 pm (UTC)

for_serious13 31st-Dec-2012 08:23 pm (UTC)

boweeko 31st-Dec-2012 06:00 pm (UTC)

Also I don't really get why Bon Jovi's is that funny or important.
im_chris_hansen 31st-Dec-2012 08:56 pm (UTC)
i think that week all ontd users in NJ decided to vote? not sure why his vote was so high either.
