    Bod Dylan was right ---- something is happening here and you don't know what it is. Nor do you want to.
    hey, maybe your right, hay. maybe it's the age of aquarius, finally coming into it's own. but right now, I think you are guilty of alot of wishful thinking.


    the ONE good solid silver lining out of all of this is that now the base of the right and the left have both (theoretically) rejected bailing out "too big to fail" institutions.

    Your right I was not able to see the difference between hatred and anger but that's me I am a baby boomer one of those he sterotyped as
    well, if it makes you feel any better, thus far the generation ya'll raised (badly) is even worse than you. never has their been a least accomplished, or more narcissistic generation than the ones raised under the cultural teachings of the Boomer Movement.

    your turn. show us where he has advocated for the businesses employing union employees he represents to become state owned

    do so, and you will have made your case that he is a socialist. fail to do so and you will prove that your argument is all wet

    If you truly wanted to "level the playing field". you would lower the tax rates on the rich, and raise them on the lower 90%, to include the lower 47% who pay no income tax now. The levelest playing field would be the same flat tax rate on everyone's income. Somehow I do not think that is what these moochers are advocating.

    If you want to raise tax rates on investment income and capital gains, then go for it. However, you would be competing against other country's tax rates for such discretionary money. You could easily chase investment away, just as we have chased jobs away by our high corporate rates.

    As for Obama advocating unions, his new JOBS bill, and the "infrastructure" spending it earmarks, requires that all employees on these jobs are either Union, or if not, that they are paid union scale. **** that.

    This is all class envy BS.

    That's actually very true... in reality Obama doesn't want to level the playing field. That's a misnomer. It's called demanding the rich pay the way for those who are not rich; aka, class warfare.

    And yes, the fairest method of leveling the playing field would actually be a flat tax and the only person advocating such a thing is Herman Cain.

    There is nothing new under the sun.
    My reasoning for this is of course due to the basis of liberalism which is entirely about the greater good.

    This pretty much tells who is involved in the Wall Street protests. Wonder how many good liberals will denounce this and the activities of a group that has taken control of today's Democrat Party

    That is because in your day anybody with a brain called it the Democratic Party. But Rush thanks you for following orders.

    Better do some research on the term Democrat Party as there is an entire Wikipedia page on Democrat Party, hardly a Rush term

    It's easy to justify a lot of things with the "greater good".

    Whenever I hear "greater good" I think of Huxley's "Brave New World".
