What happens when you cut taxes on the wealthy? They put their money in offshore bank accounts.Ask bacon.What happens when you cut taxes on the wealthy? They relocate their businesses offshore for cheaper labor.Ask bacon.Bacon is correct.Americans can put their money wherever they wish.Trickle down economics is a massive fraud and a failure for this country.Unless you are one of the super rich.The reason we have the vote in this country is so that the non rich as well as the rich have some say in government.This ensures a certain amount of domestic tranquility.This will end soon.As the rich become richer and the working class poorer that domestic tranquility will come to a violent end.The reasons behind the French Revolution and the Russian Revolution are clear.Too much wealth at the top.The French became democratic and the Russians communistic.People today regularly work two jobs but still have lost ground compared to the preceding generations.Their has already begun in this country a massive relocation of wealth from the middle class to the plutocrats.Also known as the super rich.

<quoted text>Do you think America should repeal NAFTA and become a voice for the foreign labor markets?

I never hear ANYONE saying a word about other governments like China and Mexico, because of the vested interest there.
I have mixed views on NAFTA. When you say "we" who do you mean? I think a lot of people chastise other countries for how they treat people. But do you think they are going to actually listen?
In this area, I think voting with your spending dollar speaks the loudest.
Try not to use companies who outsource so much. Try to buy local.
I know this is hard to do all the time. I do not think we must not ever buy from other countries. If we did that, those people would likely be even worse off. But we can send some messages with our voting dollar.

I never hear anyone here ever talk about the need for a third party. I've heard other people say that maybe it's time, others say it would throw us back into the dark ages. Does anyone think the Republican and Democrat parties have run their course, and it's time for a more "global" thinking party?

I just hope Romney does not get the chance, but is certainly going to be a close election, that is for sure. If elected, with the economy already showing signs of improvement, they are sure to take credit in a Romney administration. Unlike the Republicans, I do want jobs and the economy to improve regardless. Hey, If I knew that was you who posted, I would have understood the sarcasm, but I thought it was someone else using your name. I will know in the future. Hope you are doing fine.

I think you missed my point. I was trying to show, this guy must keep using his money to make more money. Thus, his money must continue to work. His other work is irrelevant to the conversation.
No matter how rich he becomes, if he spends it, he will not keep it. If he does not keep working the money, he will not be as rich as he was before.

In other words, what was your point of saying, he had to keep putting it back in?

And in case you have not noticed, I talk about whatever is being talked about here. I also talk about what is current.
Just this year, gay marriage was voted on, so I talked a lot about it. You did your best to sweep the issue under the rug.
Race seems to be a big issue these days. Maybe it is because people like Silver thinks all black persons are lazy and want handouts all the time. Maybe it is because Obama is black. What I am sure of, it is a topic on this thread, with or without me.
Is this all I talk about? Anyone who is not blind can see I talk about any issue brought to this tread. If it is a political issue, I talk about it.
Racism and gay marriage happen to be political issues.
I do not think, child abductions are a political issue. But if you think it is, feel free to open up a discussion on it. Feel free to tell us just what you did about that missing girl?
Oh, and please tell me one thing you feel I do that is immoral?
I prayed for that little girl and I continue to pray for her family. Please tell me that you're not so twisted as to think that someone abducting a 10 year old girl, dismembering her body and leaving her like trash isn't political? Law enforcement and others investigating her death are government employees paid as someone pointed out the other day by our tax dollars, so yes, it's real political to me. The only reason it didn't get your attention is because she wasn't black, now that would have gotten your attention. Maybe if the news had said her murder was racially motivated that may have gotten your attention. What will it take for you to look outside the box of Obama and the Dems?

The gov. or the same "we" you refer to in most of your posts. I rarely hear anyone, unless it's Hillery, on C-Span addressing human rights violations. They listen if the President makes a statement at a Clooney fundraiser. Two weeks later the Sudan, his pet project, receives aid. As far as, other countries being worse off, are "we" to be the supporter of the world. Should we not take care of home before "we" try to take care of the neighbors? I am of the belief, that if I don't take care of me, how can I take care of others.

And the key word in your entire posting is IF. You could of still been married but your ex wife recognized you are and will be a weak fuck for life. You should of still been married but again, your ex wife recognizes you are a weak fuck. And you might of still been married perhaps if you didn't have the strange off the cuff non believer points of view that you have while managing a gay bar.
See, we could IF things all day. I don't live my life on ifs. Neither does anyone else.

You must have a Fox News crystal ball or a sock puppet if you think you can look into people's personal relationships and know about their personal affairs. Where did you gain such insight into privates lives? No wait! You must be a master of the hair ball oracle.

My fault Mike, I got your point, he just calls it his cash flow. Exactly, he uses his money he earns and reinvests. Sorry for the confusion.

TSF, it's quite apparent you have no time for anyone that you consider "rich." You know and I know, we can tax everybody in this country to the teeth and we'd still have a major deficit. Don't grouch at Republicans for loopholes implemented by the IRS. We don't make the rules. Maybe you ought to dial up Geitner and tell him your concerns about loopholes; heck he didn't even pay his taxes, now that's a man that cares about starving children. When will you people ever grasp that it's not wrong to be wealthy? I'm not wealthy, but I sure as heck know these big companies that employeee thousands in our country and their business help small businesses, we need them. Yes, the wealthy need to pay their fair share, but what are we going to do, cut our nose off to spite our face by making it impossible for them to make a profit and continue their business? They're going to pass down tax increases to the consumer, so what has been accomplished. Are you of the mindset that people of wealth should pay more so there's a level playing ground? Obama is not Robinhood and the Dems aren't his merry band following him around, taking from the rich giving to the poor. At what level do you hold people personally responsible for finding a job, as you say making babymommas get off welfare work, take care of their children and be responsible for themselves and their families. You act like it's a sin to be wealthy. Many people worked hard from the ground up to make their wealth and excuse me, if I don't think they need to hand it over because people don't take personal responsibility to find a job, and look after themselves.
Show one thing Arnold said that makes you think he, "You(Arnold)act like it's a sin to be wealthy?"

I note you guys say this a lot, but never when someone is actually saying wealth is bad. I guess you are just assuming again with based upon your bias.
Again, it just makes you look like an ass.

And claiming the rich are making it "impossible for them to make a profit and continue their business",due to taxes is not based upon any facts. Again it is just your biased false perceptions.

I was well aware of the case before you mentioned it. I guess you just assumed I did not know about it because I did not mention it. Again with your false assumptions.

So you think praying helps? Clearly it did not help one single bit. It may have made you feel as if you did something to help, but in all actuality, it did not.

I guess your god does not listen to your prayers, nor anyone else who prayed for her.

If I could have helped the child, I certainly would not have hesitated one second to do so. Clearly your god hesitated. Your god did nothing even though it is believed he has the power to help. You asked him to help, but he clearly did not.

Did you think your prayer would encourage god to help? Did god need to be asked to help a child from being murdered?

And just because police are involved, how is that political? You certainly failed to explain that.

Sometimes helping your neighbors helps you. We live in a time of a global economy.
I am not suggesting we spend so much on other countries it breaks us.
Bush spent a trillion dollars in Iraq, yet I hear not a single republican bitching about that.

I do think the president could say more about other countries wrongs. But I am not really sure it would help. Again, I think our voting dollar would do more change.

The democrats do spend to help us here at home. The republicans are against all that. They just wish to cut, cut, cut all spending. Well, they wish to sharply increase military spending.

Arnold, did you pray for this little girl and do you continue to pray for her family? If your answer is yes, do you think we serve a God that doesn't care as Mike says? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions you call Mike out or you're the hypocrite about religion as you called me for bringing race into this issue. You always want to bring God into an issue, so take a stand for Him. Either deny Him or reject Him and do it before everyone here so we can really know if you're just paying lip service of being a christian.

They will pretend they did not chastise us for saying the economy was Bush's fault.
Now why do you thing Romney will win?
And just why do you think when you change names or go off your registered name we know you are not an impersonator? That makes no sense.
What you think is obvious is not always obvious for others.
Kinda like how you and TSF always spin it where it is Bush's fault? Good for the goose, good for the gander...
