    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.

    3- Nobody is guilty of envy here simply because they advocate a rational tax policy which reverses the last thirty years of tax cuts benefitting the wealthy far more than others in our society. Of course, for you and the other warriors of the far right to have to give up your use of the ENVY CARD would then mean you have to have an honest discussion abotu tax policy and why do that when you can both attack your enemies and compliment yourself at the same time?

    This is one of my pet peeves about the far right. It's always a psychoanalysis, isn't it? What about rich people like Bill Gates? Don't they advocate welfare programs, or is it because they're failures too?

    I suspect anyone who isn't a socialist or a far left dem is "far right" to you.

    the uber rich are often the biggest fans of welfare socialism and other schemes that end up concentrating wealth in the hands of the government. the uber rich find it more efficient to trade with an entity that has a concentrated amount of wealth rather than trading with lots of entities with some wealth

    The unions demanded the bailouts? Why did Bush agree to them?

    You don't see that incredibly weak arguments like that are counter-productive?
