    You sound like you're projecting. You should look within yourself....search your feelings and ****. You sound like you have some genuine problems. You might want to address them.

    nope not at all. it was the government that did it. not those evil rich people. they were just as much a victum of that fraud as everyone else.
    maybe more so because some were talked into actually buying those securities as investments.

    again the fact is if you don't like what you make then do something to make more. stop complaining about other people and their success.

    I'm not asking you to believe the third party candidate you vote for is going to win. Only that you vote for them...enough people vote for someone, or a particular party...that person, and by extension, their party, WILL become news. You've gotta reach people through their TVs.


    Oh sure, that's throwing your vote away, right? What difference does it make, if there is no effective change if either of the mainstream candidates get in office? Honestly. Do you think the last several years under Romney would have been even a LITTLE bit different? Keep dreaming.
    Actually I prefer having a ticket to the table vs whining from the outside. We will never know what several years of Romney would have done. You speculate but at least he had the experience Obama still doesn't have after 6 years in office.

    then quit complaining that someone else has more and you don't.
    I have no issues I am not the one complaining about rich people you are.

    if you are happy with your life then good for you. stop getting mad that someone has more than you do.

    what is stopping him from using Medicaid? he works for a living. he has improved himself and earns enough money that he doesn't qualify compared to others who working at walmart is good enough for them. yet complain they don't make enough but then don't want to do anything to improve themselves to make them more valuable.

    still not justification for wealth redistribution.
    Exactly, so it is available to him. He can get Medicaid, he just doesn't qualify for it.

    It's such an egotistical viewpoint. "OMG they want my money because they are so poor and lazy". Man, just pay your taxes and quite down like the rest of us. No one gives a ****.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    50 years ago, hell, even 30 years ago, I would have agreed with you 100%.

    Times have changed, and you seem oblivious to that change. Our markets are regulated, causing entry barriers to would be start ups, reducing competition for the established. Since creating ones own business is more and more a risky bet with increasingly bad returns, this creates more surpluses in labor, which decreases the bargaining power, no matter HOW good of an employee one might be. And then, of course, there are the robots, ever more ready and willing to take those jobs and do them for free.

    We are slowly, and soon to be PAINFULLY, transitioning into a dramatically reduced labor society. We either accept that certain things will need to be done in order to preserve our way of life, or we change our way of life...namely, no more consumer culture, but a simpler, less materialistic existence. Or we accept that consumerism requires consumers, and acknowledge that robots and poor people don't consume. Not as much as is needed to afford me my corvette, anyway, at least.

    I don't debate speculationg. if you have proof of this, feel free to share. I've shone 65% home ownership where close to 50% of the NJ population is middle class.


    There is a reason NJ is the most moved OUT of state in the entire Republic.
    This I don't disagree with./

    We know exactly what 7 years of Romney would do. Neigh the exact same things that 7 years of Obama did.

Can you explain that issue in length for me.

    Yes, Papa bull, there are many services that the government provides that I do not get to use or do not directly affect me. I realize this, and yet I am not going to moan, bitch, and whine about it. Most services the government provide have valid and important reasons for existing, regardless of whether or not they benefit me. The system was in place before I was born, and it will be in place after I am gone - same with you. You're a small, insignificant piece in a much larger, more important system; and you can kick, scream, and bitch as much as you want, but this society is bigger than just you or I.
    Indirectly, we ALL use those services. Yeah, your neighbor uses those roads more than you. To get to his job. Making something, or providing a service. Which gets him money, which he then puts back into the market, which eventually finds it's way to you.

    Same with social services. No, I don't use them. I'm 33. Don't need them. But I accept that I enjoy the society I live in, and that social services is one of the tools my government employes to preserve that society, to keep it from becoming something else, something I might enjoy FAR less.
