    wrong-as usual-but the left tends to be the parasites who are rich because of the government.

    So how does this make her a parasite:

    Narrative: Much of the Pelosi family wealth is held by her husband, Paul, including commercial property in San Francisco valued at $5 million to $25 million. He's also a limited partner in residential real estate in Sacramento, valued at $5 million to $25 million, and he is a limited partner in Sacramento Mountain Lions, a team in the United Football League, which is valued at $5 million to $25 million. He listed 20 separate transactions that involved investments in the league as well as the team. Those investments totalled between $2.6 million and $5.2 million. Major sources of income attributed to her husband include $1 million to $5 million in capital gains from the sale of stock in Apple Inc., and $100,000 to $1 million from an investment in a resort in Rutherford, California.

    Nope. No such guarantees exist in the business world.

    Businesses will take chances in markets they believe will work for them, BUT they need some cost certainties to take that plunge. So much is up in the air about what their overhead costs will be (taxes, Obamacare, economic conditions, housing, etc) if Obama wins again next year.

    Future waters haven't been this merky since the Puritans got off the boat.

    If Obama hadn't lied so much and been so negative and wasted do much money we could have been on a real up swing last year.

    I know more about how to run a business and I think it's transferable to being fiscally responsible in Government.

    It worked well for me in City Government.
    Scapegoating.

    This has been happening since Reagan was in office and especially got worse under Bush, the junior. Obama's done nothing to make it better, sure. But you're just so filled with rage toward him, that you're trying to blame him for a problem that started when he was a teenager.

    However, it is clear that the trickle down effect many espouse is less certain than some proclaim.
    Trickle down economics won't work, as long as there is a government that is creating instability within the private sector.

    Critical Thought hits the nail on the head with this

    The super rich of this country are not Americans. They belong to a very different international community and they have no loyalties to our country.
    Economic treason it is. Nothing else short of it.
