    I see no evidence that they are envious of the rich. Who they ARE envious of, are middle-class Americans who can afford to own a home, own a car or two, send their kids to college, take two vacations a year, have health insurance, have all the food they need, etc..

    No, I don't think these people are envious of the filthy, greedy, narcissistic wealthy.

    Good analogy!

    it's called "the early bird gets the worm".... it's a saying that's been around a long time.

    waiting for someone else to give you worms has also been around a long time... but it's generally not celebrated as the proper way to live.

    We have found that has been detrimental to the financial health of our economy. Trickle down economics has been a failure for the middle class.

    Why should we vote to continue it???

    So did GE in 2010, yet I'm willing to assume, knowing your political leanings, that your against higher corporate taxes. Yet when it involves the most vulnerable among us it's fine to suggest that they don't pay enough. It does seem to me like that 50 percent is exaggerated not to mention that those who don't pay income tax either make so little it's ridiculous to assume they could afford taxes or they've taken advantage of tax credits to lower their tax rates, most of these if not all are also available to the rich. So who's being whiny now. Your whining about how some people make so little that it's possible for them to totally erase their taxes through creative(and i don't mean the illegal kind) accounting but even though the wealthy can take the same actions they can, it's still somehow unfair.
