Once again Carol you prove what a clueless twit and liar you are. Those of us on the left don't have any hatred for those who achieve success, it's how you do it that makes the difference . A high school friend of mine came up with an idea for a product and started making it in his parents' garage and steadily expanded, hiring workers and when he sold the business became a very rich man. You may have heard about it, Yankee Candle which employs thousands of workers in its manufacturing facility and its retail outlets across the country and in Europe. Do I begrudge him his success? Absolutely not, he provided employment not only with his company but with other companies that sprung up in competition.
Someone like Mitt Romney however made his money taking over companies, loading them with debt, raiding employee pensions , laying people off and shipping jobs overseas.
Your assertion that those on the left are devoid of religious belief is also totally false. Most of the people I go to church with are liberals. My son is an unabashed liberal and even when he's away at college he gets on the Metro on Sunday to attend services at St. John's on Lafayette Park or goes to a Catholic service on the CUA campus.
Your "societal standards" are code for people like you wanting to force your religious bigotry on others.
Jimmy is a mealy mouthed punk who simply parrots every other ignorant right winger on this topic.
A non-partisan study by the Center for Responsive Politics did an analysis of financial statements filed by members of Congress for 2010 income and net worth.

While President Obama castigates “millionaires and billionaires,” as evil people and largely Republican or conservative and the Democratic millionairs don't get the same attention by the mainstream media, more Democratic members of Congress are wealthier than than Republicans. According to the Center, 36 Senate Democrats and 30 Senate Republicans reported an average net worth in excess of $1 million in 2010.

Also, wealthy Democrats tend to inherit their money as opposed to most Republicans who earn it.

In other words, Democrats are part of the millionaire’s club too.

Demonizing has become a selective business in the quest for power by your party.

What really frustrates me is the left convienently ignores the massive wealth of the Kennedys and John Kerry, a former democrat president and two democrat presidential candidates, but claim the American people simply can't "relate" to the wealth of a republican candidate.

What the heck is up with that?

You mean you are calling up the Super Barney excuse that one Democrat Representative made all of this happen from a minority position in Congress.

"My"? I didn't know you & Barney were that close.

It's because the left talks to the left. The more contradictory or counterintuitive it sounds to us, the more sense it makes to them.

Yeah stupid that's why Lindsey Graham stated that;
“This idea that we’re going to use a drone to attack an American citizen in a cafe in America is ridiculous.”
Rand Paul's whole premise was inane. If there's a terrorist suspect on US soil we have the means for law enforcement to arrest him or her and bring them to justice.
Then why did Holder defend Obama having the authority at his own discretion to use drones in this country against "suspected terrorists"?

It confirms many people's concerns that this president says one thing and does another. If he insists on trying all terrorists in American courts, why would he want autonomous authority to use drones on American soil against "suspected" terrorists?

When it comes to life and death, he simply can't be trusted. Not this president who detests any and all opposition to his personal ideology and personal vision for this country.

You can see why having sole authority to use drones against "suspected enemies" would make a few people a little nervous.

Sen. John Kerry and his wife are among the 400 richest Americans. He had “a plan to tax the rich.”

According to analysis by the Argus Group, a well respected tax law and economics firm, the Kerrys’ average tax rate would only increase to 15.2 percent while many small businesses' average rate would rise by 4.0 percentage points to as high as 35 to 40 percent.

Last year, Mr. Kerry and his wife paid only 13.4 percent of their declared $5.5 million income in federal taxes.

President and Mrs. Bush, whose income was only 15 percent of the Kerrys’, paid a tax rate more than twice as high, 27.7 percent.

Mr. Kerry was not proposing increased taxes on those who are already rich but increasing taxes on those who are trying to become rich making it more difficult for people to join his club of the very wealthy.

Sen. John Edwards, Kerry's running mate, shared this tax hypocrisy. Mr. and Mrs. Edwards paid an average tax rate of only 5.1 percent on their reported $434,000 of income.

Obviously, the public is not given the full story.

Not one reporter asked Kerry about the hypocrisy of his tax positions.
