    Exactly! But we still have those that insist on waiting to be trickled down on!

    You see only what you want to see. If you wish to remain ignorant, that's certainly your choice. By all means, pick up that remote control, have another handful of chips, and carry on about how the rich make so much money off of your intelligence and hard work.

    Yes, but this is the wrong thread for discussing our failing school systems.

    Once is clever. Beyond that, not so clever.

    LOL. The only "bad" thing that will happen is that a very obnoxious federal government will be forced to become smaller.

    But if you want to raise taxes let us have the reverse deal from the previous ones struck between a (democratically-controlled) Congress and a (Republican) President. Let's do all of the spending cuts this year with a promise that a future Congress will raise taxes.

    Seriously? You honestly believe this to be true? I assume you exclude all those hollywood stars, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Michael Moore, The Kennedy Clan am I correct?

    Oh goodie, class warfare. As I'm in the intellectual class, I'm with the rich guys. We don't have a good track record with the unwashed masses or lefties. Frankly, I find lefty intellects suicidal at best.

    So far we got two poor guys, right?

    "Say what you want about trade, taxes, heath care, the credit crunch, and oil prices; the meta economic issue of our time is the eroding financial position of the American middle class that is now reaching an acute stage.



    We learn, first, that nine of ten Americans average $30,000 a year, and, second, that that number has been going in the wrong direction. But wait. The economy was in a period of economic growth from 2001 through 2006. Where did the money go?

    Cover your left eye."
