    It's the splittin truth! Income mobility will always diminish when unsustainable economic rents are extracted. Then when the labor market move to a negative equilibrium, income mobility is further damaged.

    Let me know when "understanding what libertarian means" improves your ability to discuss the political economy.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I'd love to see some information to back up that claim rather than simply data. And here's why...

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings
    ...causation does not follow from correlation. It is virtually impossible to point to one person (even the President's powers are limited) and attach such significance on that person for something so vast and with millions of variables such as the economy, especially with its notable susceptibility to ebb and flow.

    Nonsense. Liberals have tried to run a country and conservatives have done what they can to impede any progress. They are more bent on trying to make the president lose his job than help Americans regain theirs.

    You are wasting your time. Statistical analysis is in no way part of the extreme right's repertoire.

    I always get a chuckle when those who tend to have failed personal economics 101 lecture those who got an A in that subject. And it appears that extreme right means anyone who doesn't worship the class warfare crap that Obama and his fraudulent "saviors of the poor" spew

    I bet you've got my house up on Google Maps, you just know so much about me.

    Drop the class warfare, sound byte. You're only kidding yourself. There is a large gap of wealth separating the top 10% from the bottom 90% in this country. Until you would like to actually rationalize and explain 1) why that is 2) why it's OK and 3) source anything you say on the matter, I couldn't honestly care less what you think. Because you obviously have no problem conjuring up a thought in your mind about who I am and what I've been through when you don't know a single thing about me.

    There is NO class warfare! It's a stupid term that right wing-nuts like to throw around when they get cornered.
    The GOP National Committee should change their emblem from an elephant to a condom. A condom stands up to inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation, protects pricks, and gives one a sense of security and safety while screwing others.

    Let's not forget that there is also no war on terrorism!
