Barack Obama, our next President

Uhhh, a non-Republican using "RINO", I retract my apology, you are a party hack.
Not so fast.
I like a lot about what Republicans are doing. I recognize frauds, too. It's obvious there are people like McCain that are Democrats, but pretend to be Republican.
I've also used the acronym DINO, but Democrats have done a lot better job as indoctrinating their horde and eliminating any independent thought.
Leiberman was a DINO.
I called Moynihan a DINO when he said Bill Clinton was an idiot.
I can't think of any other Democrat that thought for themselves and went against the party line.
And, I've never, ever been a Democrat. I was a Republican until 1992.

<quoted text>Hey goof, American median income has been stagnant for the last 30 years while CEO and upper social class of Americans (the small 1% owners of capital) have seen their average median income rise by 800 times .
Jean from Queens is full of shit as usual.

The average annual income of the top 1% of the American population is $717,000 per year. Using your "800 times" factor means those same folks would have earned $896.25 in 1983. Absolute BS.

(Qualifier: Bocajew Jean uses the term "average median" which is meaningless. Galt assumed Jean intended average and does not understand median. The results would be similar.)

Detroit now has a population the size of El Paso, TX and needs to restructure to that model.
Detroit's budget is $1.1 billion.
El Paso's budet is $756 million.
Sounds like a 30% budget cut for starters.
Nonsense! Detroit is a rich city. Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham , 2 Detroit suburban enclaves , are some of the most affluent communities in America . And these Detroit towns got rich on the hard working , strong back of the inner city Detroit auto workers, tradesmen, journeymen craftsmen, and general factory laborers. Now the wealthy want to break all their promises to the peoiple who made them rich and powerful in the first place.

Directly thereatened... directly involved... small difference.
There was no "domino theory" when the United States became involved in Vietnam. The policy being executed was called "containment".
However, the "domino theory" seemed to be proved when the communists swept through the remaining parts of Laos and Cambodia after the Democrat-controlled Congress of 1973 sabotaged South Vietnam and the United States, wouldn't you say? Laos and Cambodia fell immediately, didn't they? Malaysia stayed afloat only because Thialand was viable enough to resist the communist wave that swept Laos and Cambodia away, and Singapore was not going anywhere or bowing to anyone.
Or, were you ignorant that Laos and Cambodia were overtaken by the communists after the Democrat-controlled congress sabotaged South Vietnam?
So, you just repeated one lie the Democrats invented, and in your very first post.
Or, explain to us how the fact of history that Cambodia and Laos fell immediately after Vietnam didn't really happen.
And, you did dodge. We were discussing how the United States became involved in Vietnam, and you ignored that part of the discussion and jumped way down the road to after the point in time where US ground combat units had already arrived in Vietnam.
I knew you'd repeat one of the lies the Democrats invented. However, I really thought you'd last past the first goddam post.
I'm not discussing it, you're talking it at me.

Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Cuba, Angola, Albania, N. Korea, and Nicaragua does not constitute a worldwide spread of communism. How many of those are still communist?

That's why the theory has been discredited.

So, you think the Fed pumping has nothing to do with it?

Sure, investors will pour in money as long as the Fed is priming, but will pull out just as quickly when the priming stops.

Corporate profits are decent, not great, often on declining revenues, not sustainable for long.

Let's not jump so far ahead. The events and decisions which led to the US becoming involved in Vietnam are very interesting.
I'd be interested in where you would cease involvement in the Cold War. After all, Ho chi Minh and the Soviet Union made the decision to involve Vietnam in the Cold War. South Vietnam asked for our help.
Should our policy have been run away everywhere he communists show up instead of containment?
Where would be have run away from next?
How long do you think it would have been before we had run away from everywhere and the communists had secured all of our allies and on our immediate border? After all, that was their end game. That's why they moved the front from Southeast Asia to Central America immediately after Vietnam.
Communism filled some of the post-colonial power vacuums, how'd it work out for the communists in Indonesia? We didn't do a thing to confront the "communist threat" there.

In the end, communism destroyed itself without ever really existing.

Bloomfield Hills and other suburbs are not part of the city and have no obligation to the city.

Most residents of these towns were driven out of the city, including the workers that you refer to.

Accepting Galt figure of 'The average annual income of the top 1% of the American population is $717,000' then compare it to the average American that has remained at $27,000 for the last 30 years. Hmmm... Who got the best of the American deal here?

Good point!

Weinerman could easily draw better ratings than any of the limp losers they have at present, shafting them.
