    You don't have a clue how our economy works.
    Sure I do.

    It isn't a fixed economy, it is one that grows and continues to grow.
    It seems to be growing more at the top lately though.


    Everyone here has equal opportunity, what you want is equal outcome.
    No they don’t.


    You are absolutely wrong.
    Nah,your wrong.

    You actually seem to think that those that earned the money and wealth should share it with someone else who doesn't have the initiative or drive to do it.

    No I don’t, I think that those that make most of the dough should pay a higher percentage of tax on said dough.


    So WHAT? Get a clue and stop supporting the clueless.

    I got a clue…you might want to trade the ole crystal ball in on a newer 21st century model.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    you are partially right, de facto there is not equal opportunity. But government cannot properly even up differences in intelligence, genes, parents, ambition, looks, athletic talent and all the other things that obviously contribute to income inequality. but we do have de jure equality and that is the best we can do

    I disagree that having more means you should pay a higher rate. there is no legitimate argument for higher rates. higher amounts, perhaps,

    I think the liberal ideology has promoted the entitlement mentality today and has convinced people like you that failure is the fault of someone else. I made it in life and did so without feeling sorry for myself or blaming someone else.

    You seem to claim that businesses are in business to screw the public. the fact is business is in business to make money and to do so they have to be competitive. Not sure were you live but you are out of touch with reality.

    What the hell is predatory lending? Where does personal responsibility rest in your world? Who held a gun to the head of individuals forcing them to sign for mortgages that they know they couldn't pay? Who forces people to buy stocks and do so in companies that aren't what they say they are? Who is letting a sick person die? Maybe you ought to find out how many people are dying in socialist countries because they cannot get treatment?

    Who is proposing cuts in SS, liberals because they have stolen from the SS fund to fund their agenda to create dependence.

    You make a lot of wild claims without any data to support them. What are you doing to help the poor? Stop expecting someone else to do it for you and the fact is you can do things better locally than you can on the national level yet you cannot seem to figure that out.

    Typical one line responses that says nothing and offers nothing of substance. Your opinions are noted but as usual they are nothing more than your opinons that aren't backed by data or common sense. You have been brainwashed by an ideology and are looking for someone else to protect you from poor choices. That is your responsibility.

    LOL, donc better wait for Obama to fix the Brent Spence Bridge before attempting to cross the Ohio. What a bunch of bs that continues to get traction with the brainwashed and braindead.
