    I've documented above the extreme wealth disparity that existed prior to both the Great Depression and the Great Recession.

    This is one of the ways we addressed that situation after the GD:



    The tax rates for those at the top will have to go up at this time to help address the extreme wealth disparity in this country not seen since 1928.

    That's your problem. You think what I suggested is EASY. It's hard, son...hard as hell. Doesn't change the fact it is doable. Hell we have people dying to come here to take he jobs people in this country are too weak and spoiled to do. They bust their ass...make enough to live here and still send money home. Give me all 20 million or so illegals and send 20 million lazy weak willed pets to their socialist utopia...I'll take that trade any day of the week and throw in a few draft picks and a kicker to be named at a later date.
    NOT easy...especially if you havent prepared. Still...EMINENTLY doable. It starts by standing up.

    You're a business owner with a computer and high speed internet and you're complaining about opportunity in this country? Look around the world, you're the freaking 1% dude.

    I didn't say it was easy. Your interpretation of things are more simple, and really aren't based in reality.

    The people that are jobless right now aren't jobless by choice, you seem to think this is the case. THere are currently 8 people unemployed per job opening.
