    Rich just got richer. They still won't hire. Obama is to blame. So John Birch is relevant in this thread. Because John Birch was hired by God as his servant, and God is rich. And since Obama is God, the quoted paragraph above is relevant. That's as close to topical as I can get since this thread has been slaughtered with bickering.
    and so it goes...

    And, under the Obama/Reid/Pelosi agenda, the poor and the middle-class are getting poorer.

    What an unecessary prepositional phrase - "under the Obama/Reid/Pelosi agenda".... As if it hasn't been happening since well before the administration.
    and so it goes...

    Yeah, when Obama was a senator in the Reid/Pelosi Congress, is when it started.

    What with the millions of jobs that have been killed by the Democrats, you're going to have a hard time arguing that they are really looking out for the common folks.

    keeping people poor and dependent to government is the dem plan for the masses

    How would that plan be even beneficial to them? Great assumption, but so vague and unsubstantiated. The government is trying to this and this and this and this, and I don't know why, but they want to!
    and so it goes...

    The gap between the rich and the poor started broadening after 2006? I need to take a break!

    More poor people for the Poor Man's Party to look out for. There sure as hell isn't anything beneficial to the Democrats going to come from making more rich people. Soon as they became rich, they would realize that the Dems want to do nothing but take it all back from them and they would vote Republican.
