Abortion is legal, and gay marriage is an inevitability. But that doesn't stop the far right Christians from chipping away at gay and omens rights.

They chip away at public education for the same reasons; advancing their religion

Go ahead. Keep pushing that "repealing Obamakkkare", bogus "income inequality" platform. As long as your party is going to lose, might as well make sure you lose by the largest margin in history.
income inequality is and always has been a motivating factor leading to growth....

if all incomes are equal, there is no incentive to work....and a lower standard off living for all....

You may as well change your screenname again to Ann Coulter.
You parrot her perfectly, and always have....dating back to your bromance with Christie in 2012.
Why are you complimenting Galt by comparing him to Anne Coulter?

Please explain.

Call the fire department. That's all the GOP ever talks about. CPAC was all about gays and abortion. That's red meat for your base. Accept it.

A snake, seeing the world through the eyes of a snake, is a poor judge to question the motives and methods of other creatures inside of Creation.

Go play with your snake friends.

Well, at least you seem to admit that Issa is a snake oil salesman. Shouldn't surprise me at all that a Rethug would hold that up as a virtue. What you are saying is that Issa is "good" because he manipulate the truth better than most.

Welll.. I don' know... I theenk part of dyur problem is conflating "growth" weeth an increased "standard of leeving." In reality, chust the growth part alone weel pretty much guarantee the majority of the pipple a lower standard of leeving. So here ees the fly in your porridge, so to speak: dyu need "growth" to ensure more cash flow from the silly pointless trash you buy from china and then sell to whites through Walmart or the Penny Chopper. But in order to create economic "growth" for dyu, you got to create population "growth," for everybody else which pretty much dooms them to a lower standard of leeving. Can dyu not see thees simple equation?

"Yet in all societies, even those that are most vicious, the tendency to a virtuous attachment is so strong that there is a constant effort towards an increase of population. This constant effort as constantly tends to subject the lower classes of the society to distress and to prevent any great permanent amelioration of their condition".
—Malthus T.R. 1798. An Essay on the Principle of Population.

Thees guy saw it clearly and he didn't even have a 84" flat screen television, eh, chimaco?

Galt is a strong believer in public education, but public education must focus on the needs of the students instead of union benefits and job security if it is to survive.....

unions are killing the public school system....by protecting lazy, incompetent teachers.....

"The years from the end of World War II into the 1970s were ones of substantial economic growth and broadly shared prosperity.

"Incomes grew rapidly and at roughly the same rate up and down the income ladder, roughly doubling in inflation-adjusted terms between the late 1940s and early 1970s.

The income gap between those high up the income ladder and those on the middle and lower rungs — while substantial — did not change much during this period."

"Beginning in the 1970s, economic growth slowed and the income gap widened.
Income growth for households in the middle and lower parts of the distribution slowed sharply, while incomes at the top continued to grow strongly.The concentration of income at the very top of the distribution rose to levels last seen more than 80 years ago (during the “Roaring Twenties”)."

FACT: People were more inclined to work before the 1970's rapid rise in growth inequality. We've gone downhill ever since.

why are you clinging to the defense of the source, i never attempted to discredit the source at all, just the content as any rational discussion should...
is this a reflex response? it had absolutely nothing to do with my posts...
There's more. NY Times. I think they're a state approved news outlet.
