    Why blame cracking, is there evidence that this was this cause? If not, leave the baseless claims to the conservatives, it's their bag.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    Sorry, its you lefties who are against fracking, not those on the right side of the fence.

    Of course the lefties are against every other type of fossil fuel used for energy unless it comes from a country that wants to blow us up, then its acceptable to use here in the US.

    It's not about politics you stupid fuck.

    Do you really want the whole slab of earth on the crust to be de-stabilized to the point of earthquakes???

    God you're an idiot.

    How dramatic.

    And when was the last time fracking caused an earthquake that hurt anyone in the US or Canada?

    While the left is against fracking, I'm not. The right is known for their baseless claims i.e., Obama is a muslim, he is not an American citizen, he is the antichrist, there are WMDs in Iraq, tax cuts lead to job growth, regulations are strangling companies, unions drive up costs, etc.

    It's funny, when someone from the left makes a point the right is always looking for evidence or proof, yet when they make up some bullshit they require you to disprove them.

    Tax cuts, at least for small business, do lead to jobs growth as I have a 100' steel warehouse ordered right now primarily because I can write 100% of it off this tax year. I'm working on permits today and hope to be paying a local concrete crew to pour the slab next week.

    My 2nd of 2-$25,000 electronic filling machines, that I've purchased this year, came in 2 weeks ago and is still in the crate waiting on the new warehouse. Once again, another 100% appreciable capital investment in 2011.

    Isn't that a write-off, not a tax cut? Congrats regardless.

    So your redneck logic is:
    Wait until people die before doing something different?

    I hope your the first.

    I blame Magma. That is a funny word to say MAG-muh, MAG-muh, MAG-muh...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Depends how you look at it I guess. As a small business owner, if you have 'good' write-offs during a year like this with accelerated/100% depreciation, it's essentially a tax cut for the corp's president because if the IRS's formula says you/your corp made too much profit, those write-offs are basically a net personal tax cut when it all comes down to it at income tax return time next winter.

    Keep in mind this is small business not GE.

    That said, while I appreciate these 100% write-offs, aka tax cuts in 2011, I'm all for a very reasonable write-off/depreciation cap. Maybe $500K?

    If that's too low to spur small business growth, I say pull the plug at 1 or 2 mil. Small business does/did employ ~70% of the US workforce, so IMO small business needs a gov't reach around long before the Fortune 100 does and as a small business owner, I say keep our asses in check too. Many a small business owner would be thrilled to get .5 to 1 mil in 100% annual deprecation/write-offs. IMO if you are making more than $1 mil in annual NET profit as far the IRS is concerned, pay the taxes after that first million.

    FWIW- While I would have to look at back filings to be certain, many of you might not know that say 3 years ago if a small business bought a forklift, it was depreciated/written off over 15-18 years! Computers might be written off over 10 years. All in all, that's pretty stupid IMO but who am I?

    I hope I am the 'first' as well because so many people's mortgages, car payments and student loans rest upon my shoulders and my decision making.

    When I die 'first' and they default, their debt will weigh upon you and your great attitude toward life.

    Cheers bro

    now why would any country have hostility against the US after we used and abused them? that's just crazy talk...
