    Humility is not your strong suit, is it?

    its like someone with tremendous athletic talent being a couch potato.

    There are not absolutes in life but there are trends and predictors.

    People who are born into single parent homes are far more likely to end up on welfare or in jail then those who come from two parent homes

    those who get knocked up as teenagers are far more likely to be on welfare than those who wait until they get out of college to breed

    and those with high IQs tend to be far better off than dullards
    You dont seem to get what my point was. Poor people are not necessarily stupid, they simply dont have access to higher forms of education that make a person score higher on an IQ test. There is nothing PHYSICALLY different that sets poor and rich apart.

    Education is really irrelevant to IQ tests.

    You "Never" hear Liberals attacking Compensation for distinctly Liberal entities like Google, Wikipeda, NPR, PBS and others. Google CEO's only paid themselves $1 in compensation. "Poor Babies!"
    But they don't say out loud they are both Billionaires in all Capital Letters as a result of their ownership interest.

    Isn't that a little like saying I own 5 Billion dollars of stock in my company but I am no longer going to take the pay I get from my Lemonade Stand by the front door! (Now everybody 3 cheers for me.)

    Some of you may remember Lee Iaacoca who took control (CEO ) of GM and brought it out of the garbage can in profits.

    All this attacking is part of the driven Liberal Politics package of attack and smear - attack and smear.
    How loudly have those same Liberals attacked Democrat / Progressives for the $26 million dollar bonus package of Valerie Jarett when she was with one of the sub prime twins Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac.
    How loudly did they scream about Johnson who took $20 million (Obama's short lived financial adviser in his campaign ) or Obamas personal friend at Fannie Mae Claude Raines $ 90 million.
    How louldly are they screaming about both of them being conveniently exempted in Obama's ballyhooed financial Reform package? Even Rahm Emanuel was there for a short time and was given a sweetheart deal that netted him $6 million.
    Does anybody "Ever" remembering hearing any of those Leftist Bullhorn Cries of "FOUL"
    Its strange that you would mention Lee Iacocca'in a thread whose title “CEOs lay off thousands, rake in millions”.Do you happen to remember what Mr. Iacoccas salary was when he turned Chrysler around? I wont keep you in suspense; Mr.Iacocca saw fit to reduce his salary to $1.00 per year to show everyone at Chrysler that he was willing to sacrifice for the company to survive. How many of the bloated hogs of the CORP bailout kings do you think would do this today?

    Oh, by the way, the government made money on the Chrysler bail out…in case anyone is interested.
    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

    yep, the neophyte on pennsylvania ave is the plutocrat's plaything

    they take the hundreds of bils he gives, no strings

    they sit on the sidelines while he squirms

    they refuse to lend, he whines, he moans, he threatens, he calls names

    then they give 68% of their contributions to the red opposition

    (YAWN)....so do you have anything close to the topic of the thread to contribute?
