    Isn't Obama in the top 1% too?

    For me, hearing conservatives drone about morality and gays and contraception and religion, in this day and age, is more damning than their personal wealth. Personal wealth is an expression of freedom, their primitive opposition to social freedom is what's outrageous.

    It is poetic the GOP chose Daddy Warbucks to represent the 1% in battle with the 99%. Should make for some epic campaign ads soon!
    Romney and Obama are pretty much indistinguishable in their actual actions. They may tell a different story but the one that ends up on paper is pretty much one and the same.

    Yes, I was amazed when the R's took back the House.....and I guess keeping the House still makes them irrelevant.

    You made that same claim in 2008 as I recall

    the fact is-after this election I will still be far more prosperous than you are no matter who wins. And you will still by whining about the rich and the GOP no matter who wins. So why are you so excited about an election that won't change anything?

    Jobs are nothing more than corporate need for labor. If they are making profits without needing more labor WTF cares? Its like asking a manufacturer of knives that specializes in ceramic blades why they aren't buying more steel

    Me too. I think the same poster made that claim. He seems to think that the dem program of breeding more and more parasites will overwhelm the productive and the industrious

    Correct. Some people think the point of business is to employ people.

    And that is suppose to pass for a long term economic plan for a nation of 311 million people!?!?!?!?!

    Amazing. Simply amazing.
