    Wow, look at you, the big "grown up" telling me what i should think because you know better? Look at you making a personal attack at me, about how I'll do after I'm "out of school"...Yeah Liberals and all they can do is personlly attack people because those Liberallls have no facts to back up what they say. And In case you have not noticed there is an Occupy DC movement as well, but its a two part issue, a circle of corruption, the politicians are paid off by the people in Wall street, the people in wall street are the ones who make the decisions with other peoples money that collapsed our economy, while DC let them do it.

    you are going to be battling for a long time because it does appear that you will never achieve that top 1% even though you have a chance in this country to do that.

    Someone needs to explain to Conservative that there are no filibusters in the House.

    For the complete list of filibusters in the 111th Congress, including scores of economic measures:

    U.S. Senate: Reference Home > 111th

    So then the answer is nothing, there is no legislation that has been proposed by Obama that would have benefited the economy that the Republicans filibustered. Typical liberal talking points.

    What are the things that Occupy Wall Street is about? Regulating the financial market, raising taxes on the rich TO PREVIOUS LEVELS, getting the special interest money out of politics, these are things most Americans agree on, OWS has brought a lot of attention to it but at the same time, people are getting sick of OWS because its dragged on for so long and their getting sick of it.

    Come on Conservative...really? I'm guessing that when these major bills were passing you considered the filibusters and attempted filibusters in order to get concessions a victory and now you're saying they didn't exist.

    Second, it's not a bad thing to be smart. So, criticising Obama for being smart is kind of silly. That said, being smart doesn't mean you do things outside your ability or what is allowed by law.

    Just saying.. . .
    Why did you vote for Obama and did you expect the kind of results we have today? Where are his leadership skills, the transparence, as well as keeping his promise about uniting the country? He had a mandate and blew it showing his true Community Organizer colors. His class warfare rhetoric does nothing but divide not unite and the results are a disaster

    OH yeah i have the "chance" to get into the top 1 percent i agree but chances of anyone on my level being able to do that is about 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000001%...the thing a lot of Conservatives don't seem to understand is that not everyone can be rich, in a Capitalist system or in almost any system, you can only have a certain amount of rich people, there is only a certain amount of money in the economy and as the years have gone on, that money has been shoved all to the top, wealth/dollars are not just created out of thin air, they are simply transferred from one owner to another.

    You are guessing but have nothing concrete because Obama has failed miserably yet you continue to buy the rhetoric. Obama cannot run on his record and knows it. With people like you ignoring that record and blaming everyone else but Obama he could be successful in getting another 4 years. This country cannot afford 4 more years of Obama
