Dems: Our critics are the Mob

Well, at least this isn't St Valentine's Day and they don't have tommyguns.

43 Things Actually Said in Job Interviews

I'll have to remember these, just in case. Stuff like:
What are your hobbies and interests?
4. [He said] 'Well, as you can see, I'm a young, virile man and I'm single -- if you ladies know what I'm saying.' Then he looked at one of the fair-haired board members and said, 'I particularly like blondes.'" - Petri R.J. Darby, president, darbyDarnit Public Relations

Have you submitted your two weeks' notice to your current employer?
36. "What is two weeks' notice? I've never quit a job before, I've always been fired."
Here are the rest.

Income Tax Payers

As Scott A. Hodge of the Tax Foundation says:
IRS data shows that in 2007—the most recent data available—the top 1 percent of taxpayers paid 40.4 percent of the total income taxes collected by the federal government. This is the highest percentage in modern history. By contrast, the top 1 percent paid 24.8 percent of the income tax burden in 1987, the year following the 1986 tax reform act.

...(T)he top 1 percent is comprised of just 1.4 million taxpayers and they pay a larger share of the income tax burden now than the bottom 134 million taxpayers combined.
So...if you are so dependent upon the top one percent, and a recession occurs in which their incomes fall by 25%, just what does that do to your budget?

Seems to me that the rest of us should pay more taxes, or demand less from our overlords.

UPDATE: I guess this is what happens to your budget.
