    Can you demonstrate how it creates opportunities? Because like time I check under Regean, the poor classes income dropped over 9% and the top 5% of the rich rose by 27% on average.

    Are you for real? NavyPride does that a lot, calling people liberals because they are to the left of him.
    Is that how you feel? I put your sock puppets on ignore, looks like you are next.

    Trickle down does not create opportunities across the board, what it does do is it creates a cadre of toadies, willing to shill for a few bucks off their taxes while the truly rich get exponentially more tax savings.
    You don't want to tax the wages of the living rich or the estates of the dead rich.
    And they love you for it...but don't expect to be invited to their homes for BBQ...

    Because to be a politician you have to be wealthy. It isn't limited to Democrats or Republicans. It just reflects the society and how it is run by the rich "elite".

    How can you speak for a large portion? Not to mention you have not addressed the growing poor class.


    "More out of life" What do you mean? As in you expect more or as in you just want more? Either way you should be happy and grateful for what you have and if you aren't in comfort work for it. Material goods aren't everything and if you are talking about relationships and meaning in life, then excuse my ignorance, but I have no idea what that has to do with trickle down.


    What if you don't know they are a "shopper" when you marry them and once you realize you are already in love and can't imagine divorcing them?
    you are the dumbest cluck I have seen on here in a long time....
    your ignorance is hard to excuse, but it can be ignored...

    Then I suggest you check again and this time go to BEA.gov and BLS.gov to see economic growth, job creation, and wages. Re-writing history is what liberals try to do as well as divert from the thread topic. I doubt seriously that you were old enough to even know what went on during the Reagan years or what he inherited but that really doesn't matter now. Obama is a disaster and the results show it.

    Ah instead of sustaining an argument turn to insults. Classy.

    The toadies are the libs who live at the government nipple, always wanting other people's money to subsidize the flow of largesse to them.
