    I wasn't a trust fund baby and unlike you I have no jealousy and resentment for those who are. How do they hurt you or your family? You are the one obsessed with what someone else makes. You need to get over that jealousy you have for anyone who has more than you regardless of where it came from. That entitlement mentality is a sickness.

    There's a lot of large issues looming in the country and honestly the Tea Party and Conservatives seem to think ignoring them is the solution. As of right now, our economy and job markets resemble 1930 more than they do 1975. Call me naive but I think 1930's solutions are needed instead of 1980 Reaganomics.
    Protesting what? What is the alternative? Is it your desire to have a large central govt. where you send in your money in the form of taxes and have them send back to you what they deem that you need?

    The incentive in waiting tables is to get your foot into the door, establish a work record, and move on to something better, if that is your goal. Beats the hell out of sitting at home getting an unemployment check for two years.

    You know there is such hatred and ignorance about the T.E.A. Party. Please tell me how many have been arrested for disorderly disruptive actions? For someone your age to attack Reaganomics tells me a lot about you. Never in the history of this country did so many raise themselves up and prosper as they did under Reagan. Why don't you ask yourself why liberals are so anti Reagan? Reagan made people proud of themselves and their efforts thus they didn't need liberalism. No wonder liberals hate Reagan.

    I suggest six months worth of benefits and force people out to work, maybe not THE job but A job. The entitlement mentality today is part of the problem.

    You want so badly to believe the Obama rhetoric, where are the specifics of that so called proposal? Just like where is the Job's Bill that Obama is touting? It hasn't even been introduced to the Congress. What is it about liberalism that creates such loyalty?

    Reagen was controlled by corporations, that is why. He also was the one who lowered the taxes on the rich.

    How do you know what Reagan did, you weren't around. Do you believe he would be as popular today if he did what liberals claim he did? Your textbooks are garbage as apparently is the education you are receiving.

    By the way it is Reagan NOT Reagen.

    Based on what I've experienced yes.

    Most people who remain unemployed, are the least employable, for a variety of reasons.
    Second, unemployment payments have been cited in a number of potential job offers we have made, as being preferred at that time to taking a job they arent' jazz'd about.
    Some people are intentionally unemployed. Who really wants to work anyway? Sure a percentage of people love their job, but once you get over the stigma of not working...the lack of "going to work every day" in my experience, is a sweet delight.

    And can you blame them? Pay me not to work rather than take a hard job....that's not an easy choice for everyone.

    You've been claiming that Obama is driving us into a double dip recession for at least a year now ... Looks like your hopes and prayers are not being answered.

    By the way ... 400 thousand jobs added last month ...

    ... that's your idea of heading towards a double dip? Good news for America remains bad news for you.

    Back to insults I see.

    But seeing as how I want to keep this conversation going:
    The top tax rate was lowered from 50% to 28% while the bottom rate was raised from 11% to 15%. Many lower level tax brackets were consolidated, and the upper income level of the bottom rate (married filing jointly) was increased from $5,720/year to $29,750/year. This package ultimately consolidated tax brackets from fifteen levels of income to four levels of income.[1] This would be the only time in the history of the U.S. income tax (which dates back to the passage of the Revenue Act of 1862) that the top rate was reduced and the bottom rate increased concomitantly. In addition, capital gains faced the same tax rate as ordinary income.

    That paragraph disgust me.

    Yep, that is why his approval rating is so low and the unemployment rate is so high. I know how much he appreciates having people like you supporting his lies and distortions. Keep buying the rhetoric. If 400,000 jobs were created why didn't the unemployment rate drop?
