No way "copy and paste" goog (GOOBER) wrote that poll question. NOT EVEN A 1:175,000,000 CHANCE.

    THe twisted logic is all too obvious..... for any rational person!!!

    As I said in my post yesterday, they are walking in lock step to

                  INCREASE SPENDING

    NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY LIE ABOUT IT.

    5-12-12 Quote from the Washington times:

    "Putting pressure on Congress to approve parts of his latest economic stimulus plan, President Obama urged Americans Saturday to push lawmakers to approve his multibillion-dollar “to-do list” for creating jobs"

    Just look at Europe. Starving working people will never benefit a consumer "artificially created" based economy. Just look at Europe and any "Tinkle On" economy. The stimulus needed to be bigger. Never take a knife to a gun fight, and never use a Tonka toy to pull an economy destroyed by the "R" party out of a deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep ditch. How many people need to lose their homes and jobs before you get it?

    It amazes me how the "R" party can destroy the economy, then have a meeting on the inauguration day of President Obama; set a plan in action to block every attempt by the president to help the economy. Maybe, just maybe, if they had not devastated the economy, as reason for such a meeting might be plausible. They must really think a lot of themselves.

    During the mid-term elections the "R" party talked about creating jobs, then addressed every issue beside jobs. They say, "give us another chance, BushWack wasn't a real conservative." All that they want is more time to make the 1% richer. Functioning "R" politicians no longer exist. Both parties, but especially the "R" party are a race to the bottom until money is removed from government and the electoral process.

    Let us pray.

      Googler, you're not helping.  At least I'm in here trying to come to some sort of understanding, and it very nearly happened until you reared your head again.

      Do you have any concrete suggestions regarding turning the economy around and possibly even paring down our massive debt?  Or are you just going to spout your usual rhetoric in that obnoxiously large font?

      It sounds very much like you think Communism is the way to go.  Please tell me I'm wrong.

      Wrong!!

      I just asked a simple question that has nothing to do with communism.

      We should vote our current interest, not vote on the wealth that we might obtain in some distant future.

      Please undo my damage.

          I can prove these people have no idea what they are talking about by asking ONE simple question.

          Here it is:

          How much $$$$ (investable assests) does a person need to have in order to be in the top 1% of the US population.

          HINT: 3.1 million people = 1% of the US population.

            Wait a second Googler, did you just say "look at Europe" and then "we need more spending?"

             

             

            LMFAOOOOOOO.

             

            You're advocating for the policies that put Greece in it's situation, all while saying that WE SHOULD HAVE GONE AS FAR AS THEM.  Let me try to explain something.  The only major differences between America's fiscal situation and Greece's is that our economy is much larger, and that our currency is still held as reserves.  If that changes - don't expect the US Government to be able to keep going into debt, or keep spending.  At that point - we will have to start paying back other countries.  One die-er (I don't know how to spell that lol) move we could make is to default on the loans the Federal Reserve bank made us, but do you really think we can just flat out REFUSE to pay back China?

             

            No we can't, so we have to STOP GOING INTO DEBT.  I didn't think that was a hard concept.

             

            What do you want?  The government to take care of you from Cradle to Grave, in the afterlife and a government program to reincarnate you so you can get social security checks after death?

              A lot more money than you'll ever have.  Stop worshipping at the feet of those who would gladly turn us all out into the streets if they thought it would pad their trust funds.

              From the Wall Street Journal last year:

              "An annual salary above $506,000 puts you in the top 1%, while you need to make less than $2,500 a year to be in the bottom 1%."

                Protecting the rights of all people, even if they are rich, is not worship.  It's just not theft.

                    Exactly how does turning someone into the streets pad a trust fund?

                    If a bank or mortgage company loans you money and you don't pay it back, they lose, you lose, if there are enough empty houses concentrated in one area, the other home owners lose, due to falling home value,

                    Please OH please, explain in great detail how this is good for anyone ?

                    Do you not see how twisted your thinking is ? Do you not really understand all the ramifications of this problem?

                    What you are is jealous for one, uninformed and ignorant of the complete situation, you are quite simply repeating non-sense from other jealous individuals.

                    When you say something that stupid, it shows us who you really are.
