    Rhetoric and no substance. that is all I get from you. Where are the facts that show that the rich have manipulated the poor? No one can be manipulated without making the decision on their own.

    Your hysterical rants about the rich are really droll
    2012 is coming and the hyserical ranting will turn to voter ranting and you and your elitist buddies will not like the out come, you have little no significant value many of those that your carpetbagging friends have stolen from have much more to offer to society then you do. Money does not make you rich it makes you a slave

    While many of the conservative defenders of Wall Street may be quick to portray protests against the American financial establishment as driven by envy of its wealth or far-left ideologies, the truth is that people have a very simple reason to be angry — because Wall Street’s actions made tens of millions of people dramatically poorer through no fault of their own. In 2010, the International Monetary Fund and World Bank conducted studies of the effects of the global recession — caused largely by Wall Street financial instruments that were poorly regulated by government policies — and found that the recession threw 64 million people into extreme poverty:

    Actually what is amazing is how you jump in the middle and don't have a clue as to the history of my posts. Amazing how little you know about civics. What happened in 2007-2008 is the fault of BOTH the President and the Congress, that is basic civics which many here don't understand. Obama took office with total control of Congress in massive numbers and the results show that there are more unemployed than when he took office, fewer people employed, 4 trillion added to the debt, a downgrade of our credit, and 1% GDP growth. That is what will be on the ballot in 2012 and anyone that supports this empty suit incompetent is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    I have seen no evidence that you are politically aware of anything.

    You are abolutely correct, 2012 is coming and you aren't going to like the results. What exactly have you don't to help the poor? How much do you contribute local charities? Why do you think that is the Federal Government's role? I believe this is an act on your part so prove me wrong by providing actual data to support your claims, not op ed pieces from leftwing sites.

    I am laughing at your bravado. And your whining about slavery is funny. Your silly class based rantings are braindead nonsense. Carpetbagging? My family's been in Ohio since before 1800. Ever heard of William Henry Harrison? His wife is from nearby Northbend and was family

    Our credit rating was downgraded because of congress's inability to raise the debt ceiling until the last minute, causing uncertainty that has never existed before. It wasn't because of the magnitude of the debt. S&P said "The political brinkmanship of latest months highlights what we see as America’s governance and policymaking becoming much less stable, much less powerful and much less predictable than what we previously believed. The statutory debt ceiling and the threat of default have turn into political bargaining chips in the debate over fiscal policy."

    Also, the economy takes a while to adjust to things. The long term effects of legislation and other economic factors are not always immediately seen. You can't blame individuals for problems our country is facing. You have to blame specific pieces of legislation or decisions. You tend to favor ad hominem centered arguments.

    For the record, I think Obama has done a poor job as president. Unfortunately, the 2012 election is going to be a contest between the lesser of two evils, and I highly doubt that won't be Obama.

    I guess your slightly liberal position has moved quickly to the right? Hatred only empowers those who it is directed at, I hate no one and nothing, I feel sorry for those who worship the almighty dollar to the point of bringing misery to others
