    Who are the hard core unemployed you refer to? Do you have any in your state of AL? Does your state take in more from the Feds than it gives back? Thought so. Try this. Imagine a Union and a Confederacy fighting WW II.

    Greetings, NIMBY!

    Hourglass is a great analogy! But I thought that the current complaints are that there is too much at the top, which is why higher taxes are being called for from that group. I agree that the middle is being squeezed, though!

    I refer to all of them, of course.

    Do you have any in your state of AL?
    Certainly.

    Does your state take in more from the Feds than it gives back?
    Of course. Given the defense industry in Alabama it makes sense, doesn't it? Huntsville is home to Redstone Arsonel, several PEOs and many defense programs. We also had a large contingent of NASA employees until NASA was sacrificed by Obama. This state has shipbuilding facilities as well.

    Thought so. Try this. Imagine a Union and a Confederacy fighting WW II.
    Why?

    many, many times, but hopefully never on these threads ... although, sometimes it feels that way posting with you ...

    If speaking of shapes, I'd prefer the economy have a 38-26-36 to what we have now. It astounds me people complain of a 40% tax rate at the top, or any taxes at all, when the top paid 90% during IKE's time. I enjoy the _________ of this Great Nation and don't mind paying for it.

    Most women wouldn't mind having the measurements you quoted, either!

    You think Defense and whining about Obama/NASA is all their is? You left out all of your domestic and corporate welfare. Try looking at what Reagan/Bush-41 transferred from Blue to Red states in their 12 years.
