    Are you under the impression that drug dealers cure addicts?

    referencing the rich as Muffy etc is a rational discussion of national tax policy?

    His post seems to have gone miles over your head Turtle. Please go back and read it again and you will see you are misinterpreting it.

    Yeah, I'm familiar with far-right talking points. But the fact is that safety net programs have cut the poverty rate in half, so the drug dealer analogy is piss poor.

    1- Lots of critics of the policies of the right wing are very successful... as am I. It is a gross insult to say that only the 'unsuccessful' want would economic policies for the benefit of the entire country. It is an intended slur against those who disagree with you and a pathetic attempt to paint your enemies as losers. Shame on you for that.

    2- It is another insult to state that those who disagree with right wing goals and policies lack intellect or insight. Again, this is a disgusting and pathetic attempt to paint your ideological enemies as unintelligent as you true believers are. Why don't you deal with the actual policies being discussed instead of attacking those who disagree with you painting them as 'unsuccessful' - a charge which you have no information which to make that judgment, or lacking intellect or intelligence which is just plain silly given my educational attainment, career, and ability to show you where you are in serious error.
    1- As opposed to saying that those are not rich and vote against what you perceive to their best interest are brainwashed?
    2- There are valid arguments to be made on many things, but in your posts the only thing that comes through to me is envy or the lack of intellect and insight to recognize the results of your limitations. I extend my apologizes if you have some disability which has prevented you from realizing what you think you deserve in life. That might be more understandable, but still not a reason for envy.

    He does not have that ability and the war on poverty has wasted trillions and I don't see any credible proof-anyone can post a graph. we do know the rate of black illegitimacy skyrocketed with the "great society"

    you ignore the fact that there are far more handouts than government safety programs and many people who have never been in poverty are addicted to those additional programs

    You're talking about Exxon/Mobil, Citi, AIG, Archer Daniels Midland, Bank of America, etc.?
