Pure Socialist Propaganda from a nasty frustrated mooch:

.. Lets put the two parties to the numbers..
Inequality has demonstrated its destructive effects to our democracy through out history. Here and abroad. Here if we take the past 80 years and examine in detail what stimulates inequality distributions, we may define a tool to gage our vote. Identify who contributes to a greater distribution of our laborers productivity. One example is Obamacare. Effectively redistributing health cost with a progressive cost to premium in ratio to “income not health”.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

My dear child Waxman, is the internationally renown statisticians to be so easily dismissed with your non source juvenile foxy infested opinioned nonsense? You are a fine example of the republicans degrading abilities to decipher facts from emotional derogatory ignorance. A child devoid of experiences. Sheltered by a spoiling parentage. Reduced to non factual and no substance bumper stickers. A child like mind lost in its graffiti on life. Such are the heroes of the republican austerity aristocrats.

It wasn't a choice. Trust me. My job required a lot of mental focus and accuracy. Which would have been fine had I not been switched to specialties even more demanding four years ago. After 14 years of transcribing and, at my age, my brain began to rebel.
Nothing I could do about it or I would have. Being a perfectionist has its price - stress and getting burned out.
Sorry to disappoint but I already know the feeling.
if you are physically and mentally unable to work full-time at the relatively young age of 62, then perhaps you are correct to enjoy your few remaining years as soon as possible...

my point is simply that those who retire early often grossly underestimate the savings that they need and end up in poverty in a few years, begging for government assistance...

The choice of Carolyn Kennedy as the first female U.S. envoy to Japan was a brilliant appointment. The people of Japan love her and her arrival in Japan was treated as a royal event....with thousands lining the streets of Tokyo to just catch a glimpse of her.

As someone who graduated in the top ten percent of her class at Columbia Law School Carolyn is certainly far more qualified to serve as an Ambassador than Bush's choice of high school graduate Shirley Temple as a U.S. Ambassador. Now, that was inept.

So you gonna shoot them after they knock you out?? LOL

Or you just gonna shoot them just in case??

You'll have a nice time in prison Nobraina, being gang raped by their peeps.

Funny how you old white Teabag chickenasses react to every urban rumor;

----------

""Police Unsure if Random Attacks Are Rising Threat or Urban Myth
‘Knockout Game’ a Spreading Menace or a Myth""

"Fear swept through Borough Park, Brooklyn, as soon as the news got out: A young man was randomly assaulted by strangers early Friday morning, and the attack was possibly part of the so-called Knockout Game.

Four men were arrested, but on Friday night only one was charged and the others were released.

The attack added to a growing log of reports of such crimes in the Northeast and beyond. Young assailants were randomly picking unlucky targets and trying to knock them out with just one punch.

Yet police officials in several cities where such attacks have been reported said that the “game” amounted to little more than an urban myth, and that the attacks in question might be nothing more than the sort of random assaults that have always occurred.

And in New York City, police officials are struggling to determine whether they should advise the public to take precautions against the Knockout Game — or whether in fact it existed."

It draws on a number of approaches, including ecological economics, solidarity economy, degrowth, systems thinking and Buddhist economics.

"Degrowth?" - Degrowth is a political, economic, and social movement based on ecological economics and anti-consumerist and anti-capitalist ideas.

"Solidarity economics?" - "...a set of strategies and a struggle aimed at the abolition of capitalism..."

You're in the wrong country, traitor.

She admits to being mentally unfit to do medical transcribing, which is basically copying crap, yet presents herself as an expert on the economy, foreign affairs, healthcare, abortion, etc.

She can't seem to admit that her brain is old and moldy, likely from years of personal self abuse, smoking and eating all the wrong foods.

She's the perfect prototype of the Teabags here; addlebrained.

I'm happy she's on your loser side.

They are changing gears and going in reverse - not because they know the Tea Party and Ted Cruz was right (and they would never admit that anyway) but because the harsh reality of Obamacare has set in - something that eluded them until now - and it is affecting and threatening their positions of power.
Franken is another liberal who thinks himself and his party are the only considerations in the whole scheme of things.
They know what's best, after all, and must remain in power to enforce their will on the rest of us at all costs.
