I like puppies too, but not when they cry and pooh everywhere. Kind of like Arnold, he'd whine and BS.

Okay so Hillary Clinton has Benghazi following her. Ted Cruz has the shut down and the fact that he is a canuban.

Chris Christie may have misused Sandy funds and is over weight. Donald Trump has bad hair and sports his own line of neck ties that are made in China.
Out of all these Clinton still gets my vote.
And you are just stupid.

Innumeracy is a serious problem because people misinterpret the meaning of numbers. The average salary could be high because of a few persons making magabucks like Bill Gates while most people are paupers. That could certainly be the case in Ca. When looking at income, you can also look at the median income which can give a better idea of how many person are making what range of pay.
As you point out, cost of living a big factor in determining quality of life compared to median income or even average income. Cost of living can vary widely within a state depending on location and depending on life style. Facts are just the raw materials out of which a person of intelligence with education can glean understanding.

You go alone with this statement:
The secret of the expression of value, namely, that all kinds of labor are equal and equivalent, because, and so far as they are human labor in general, cannot be deciphered, until the notion of human equality has already acquired the fixity of a popular prejudice. This, however, is possible only in a society in which the great mass of the produce of labor takes the form of commodities, in which, consequently, the dominant relation between man and man, is that of owners of commodities.

I agree that labor is a commodity and that some labors are more valuable because of their unique training, education or skill sets. But why do you oppose a flat tax on ALL income?

In December of 1991 the Soviet Union expired. Communism had bankrupted the country. They couldn't fund all of their social programs and military armament. They were also trying to build their economy when the government became unstable and collapsed. This is a critical issue for American voters to understand, as we seem to think that money grows on trees in the United States, and we are stepping down the same road.
Today in America, we have a system that is getting more and more similar to communism. We have out of control regulation, high taxation, and lots of the tax money is getting eaten up by the bureaucracy. Not to mention the redistribution of wealth we already experience in the form of welfare and other social programs. This is what bankrupted the Soviet Union, and we need to recognize and learn from the mistakes of others. We have a choice we can stand for Freedom or become slave to the state.

You totally missed it, because you do not understand OWNING a business compared to WORKING for one. OWNING one means you ALSO work for one. It's a double shift so to speak. Workers get to leave and come Friday pick up a check. Owners get to do everything else. BTW, was the current President not "conceived" else where? I'd check out his mom's travel record if I were you. Her letters to immigration are available.

I certainly do understand WORKING and OWNING. When you work for a business you leave, pick up your check just to hand it out to more owners. Owners work for themselves and work overtime, over working and under paying the worker.

So now, being that RepubliCONS believe that life begins at the time of conception, reguardless of whether Jindel was born in America or not would that not make him an Indian and not a true American? And if we are to believe that life begins at birth, the time when one draws his own breath, would that not make Ted Cruz a Canadian? If one were conceived in mexico yet drew his/her first breath in America being born of an illegal immigrants, why should that make him/her an American? When it comes to self interest can we not all question our loyality?

I advocate a flat tax on ALL income regardless of the social standing of the earner or his/her method. I attach no reverence to individuals based on the magnitude of their bank accounts or their royal lineage.

Our tax dollars are just getting eaten up, pissed away by a rigid hierarchy of bureaus, administrators, and petty officials. Why should they not provide welfare and social programs for this nation's poor? Bureaucracy created the poor.

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks...will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered...the issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs." Thomas Jefferson

Despite warnings, Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act.
A few years later he wrote: "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated.The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Govenments in the civilized world. No longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominate men."
