    No, I think you got what you were/are satisfied with.

    The "playing field" could be made more level...
    How in the name of god do you think more taxes will make for a better job market? The more regulations and taxes you have, the easier it is for larger entities to enable crony legislation that benefits them.

    We can't expect to continue as a nation if the takers outnumber the providers.
    I'll take an idiot savant any day if the savant part can improve the economy and increase employment.
    But so far, most of the politicians savant part seems to be idiocy.
    Romney is smart with a business background. Obama is smart with a legal/political background.
    It doesn't matter if either or both knows the price of groceries, it matters what they know about getting off this death spiral our economy is in...
    I didn't say the rich were clueless - you're putting words in my mouth. What I said was that Romney was clueless. There are lots of rich people who have a clue. Warren Buffet. Bill Gates.

    With respect to your supposition what did the president mean when he said 'a rising tide raises all boats'? IOW if all boats are raised how could 'y's income decrease? if BHO is correct...

    Agree completely with your first sentence. Disagree completely with your second.

    I would agree, but that is because I came from responsible parents.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Let me tell you what X, Y, Z represents. I may of been a little unclear for us non-math folk.

    X, in my example, is the amount of money on the face of the planet.
    Y, is the rich people
    Z, is the poor people

    Oh, they have a clue alright. They are just being dishonest about whom they think should pony up in their opinions...BTW, their opinion means no more than mine, and so for what they want? who cares?
