    Nurse Ratched gave him his Metamucil (gotta get loosed up for tomorrows hundred post)and tucked him in bed for the night.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Like most liberals you always want to divide people into classes. As a conservative it is very frustrating to be working so hard for people like you to keep more of what you earn. Not sure why or if you went to college but I went there with the idea of making a better life for myself and my family. I never cared what someone else has or what they pay in taxes. I always learned to celebrate success including successes of people like you if there ever was such a thing.

    This country was built on rugged individualism and self reliance. There always were consequences for failure but apparently not in your world. The only thing preventing you or any other liberal for joining the top 2% is your attitude and probably work ethic. If I wanted the rest of you to go to hell, I would be supporting Obama and liberalism plus I would care if you joined those of us that have produced in upper income.
    Psst dude you just did divide people into classes.

    One of my favorite Steve Martin lines: "there are two types of people in the world; those who divide people into two types, and those who don't."

    That would be page 4 of the BLS Current Employment Statistics..... I do know exactly what it shows, it is you that has no clue....

    Glad to see your 1-2-3 punch of non-responsiveness, insults and obfuscation (though you were more responsive this time than most). You can keep buying your Fox News rhetoric of lies and half truths...and continue posting 28,000 more posts that say nothing and show no original thought. We get it; when will you?

    the rest of your post is idiotic
    Actually it more YOU that has a problem, and we are not voting up the rates of the "rest"........ only the top 1%.
    You guys got enough freebies to last a lifetime under Bush. At least you'll have your memories, you knew it couldn't last.

    Why not celebrate the success of the middle class instead of putting those in it down? Bill Gates believes the wealthy are taxed too little also is that because of his attitude or work ethic too?
    Or is it because he is "envyish" of you skinflints? Grow up and be happy for the TEMPORARY tax breaks Bush gave you, we can't afford another 900 billion for your hedge funds, poor babies.

The budget went from a 236 billion surplus to a 412 billion dollar deficit. The unemployment rate had increased 1.6 points from 4.2% to 5.8%. There were 2.2 million additional people unemployed. Bush had droped from a 90% JAR to a 51% JAR.

    And you had to ignore those results to vote to give Bush 4 more years.

    Hypocrite; thy name be Conservative.
    Guess what Sheik, it turns out that more people were put on food stamps under Bush than Obama.

    FactCheck.org : Newt’s Faulty Food-Stamp Claim

    Newt Gingrich claims that “more people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history.” He’s wrong. More were added under Bush than under Obama, according to the most recent figures.

    You really have no concept of money, how it is used and the different forms it can take do you?
