    nice, colorful charts, but they don't tell the whole story. Missing is family makeup and the fact that modern households are more likely to be two- or even three-income households, and those numbers look even more stark.

    I'm not saying Republicans have been any better then democrats … the plain an simple truth is they lost their conservative ways when it came to spending, what I am saying is two fold .. first the best government we can hope to have .. is when the balance of power is split .. we have seen where total control of government by one party .. is not good .. no matter what side has it. 2Nd … is the party that “seems” to be changing is the conservative party .. (time will bear out if they are or not) while the liberal party .. is showing no signs of change what so ever .. it's purely tax and spend .. .as it always has been.

    It almost sounds like you're complaining, which is strange because this is what you voted for.

    Of course corporations are raking in profits from overseas operations serving overseas markets. Obama's monetary policy of quantitative easing and weakening the dollar has made overseas profits especially lucrative - the only side effect being higher prices on commodities back home. That may sound bad, but really... who's going to complain about higher gas prices so long as American oil companies are making record profits??

    Helping to keep those profits overseas and away from problematic job creation back home is that wonderful corporate tax shield, highest in the world, protecting all you little guys - the working people who aren't doing much working right now. Obama, of course, has pledged to maintain this job shield firm and in place, thereby protecting it and us from those with more devious intentions, those who would bring the guard down and allow a few jobs to slip through.
