You notice as soon as anyone mentions the "C" word out comes a barrage of abuse from the right as thou we are talking Blasphemy. If the Environment was on top of the value list in the "C" world then all the worlds problems would be solved. That doesn't mean socialism or anything else it's using the same system to slowly engineer renewable's as something ten times the value of fossil products. Then the market would correct itself from always being driven by the dark side.
let me guess....like 'litethong'...you never took a macro economics class either, huh, "C"-nt?

Then you know that "trickle down economics" is nothing more than a sham. Economists cannot forecast any better than weathermen. Climatologists have a better record than either. Never had much confidence in bean counters.

Successful trickle down economics requires, at the very least, energetic participation. You have to work with the expectation of ascending the social ladder on your own. You can't sit back and wait for wealth to "trickle down" to you. Is that what you hoped would happen?

This video pretty much nails the average Obama voter's attitude.

What were you the 1 in 20 success story of 55 yrs ago or the 1 in 10,000 success story of today. In a few years time it might be the 1 in 100,000 success story. That is the real trickle down at work. Blindly following a fairytale concept that keeps propping up the top of the pyramid by taking away more from the bottom. Trickle down needs massive growth to even become noticeable, when massive economic growth is not there then the foundations of that pyramid start to crumble.

As for your drop kick video, trying to characterise that moron as an Obama voter is no different than parading around a tea bagger as the typical GOP voter. Neither are relevant in the scheme of things, crack heads and tea baggers all have their hands out for government entitlements only tea baggers pretend their handouts should come at the expense of everyone else's.

P.S. Refugee figures 'highest since WW2' The number of people forced to flee their homes exceeded 50 million in 2013, the first time since World War Two, the UN refugee agency says.

Nope, I worked for mine. Social ladder LOL, I have no intention of compromising myself to attain "good old boy" status. The world is maintained by the workers, not the fat cats whose only contribution is skimming the cream off the top. The problem with "trickle down" is that it has never been a viable economic theory. It is simply a trick used by the fat cats to cheat the folks who get things done. Feed the horse good oats and the sparrows can peck what passes through.

As with AGW, your information is seriously flawed. The "bottom" isn't being taken away from. The bottom is being intentionally added to. This government encourages it's citizens to rely on social services then uses those numbers as proof of growing poverty and the subsequent demands for added spending. The Tea Party is dominated by citizens who've made it in life and understand the disaster that's befallen our country and it's ever increasing "dependent class".

Spoken like a true believer. Trotsky and Lenin would be proud. If you have no intention of "compromising" yourself with a work ethic, expect to live the rest of your life pissed-off and spitefully entrenched in the "have-not" class.

I expect that I did more work by the time I was 18 than you have done your whole life. Where do you get this stuff? I am not pissed off or spiteful, I have earned my way so to speak. I am retired comfortably by working hard and making good investments. I just don't like the haves to exploit those who have worked hard. I am very pleased with my accomplishments because Ii have not compromised my ethics by climbing over others. If that is how you got yours, I pity you. I worship neither capitalism nor socialism. They are just economic systems, and being so do not come near solving all the world's problems. I believe that whichever does the best job of handling a situation is the one we should apply.
