Great point! The wealthy are getting wealthier. Have you given any thought to why? Could it be because the driving force to income equity, unions, has been a target of your wealthy handlers? Could it be because dupes like you are manipulated to spread the propaganda of the Koch brothers and Rupert Murdoch in their war on unions? Most of this war has been waged at the state level, look at Wisconsin and Michigan, out of Obama's reach.
When union salaries go up so do their non-union counterparts. This comes out of the pockets of your greedy wealthy handlers.
Define greed? Who gets to decide what is greedy? I think demanding money and stuff you didn't work for is far more greedy than someone wanting to keep more of what they earn!

Successful business owners and CEOs who have international businesses secure their money in international banks worldwide. So what's new?
Look into wealthy democrats - of which there is an abundance - and where their money is secured.
All of them already pay nearly half of their income in taxes to pay for the other half of Americans who pay none.
The next step is stripping people of any incentive to be successful to provide incomes and livelihoods for other Americans. That's the goal, though, with progressive liberalism, isn't it? Everyone should depend on the government of which there will be no money because no one will have any money to pay the government. Welcome to Greece!
Wise up already.
Mindless gibberish.

Nearly half their income__phooey

Successful business owners and CEOs - and especially those who have international businesses - secure their money in international banks worldwide. As do wealthy democrats. My guess is it has something to do with the crash of '29 in case the stock market goes belly up again.

Mitt Romney is not the exception as a successful entrepreneur. He represents the norm.

Does The Devil really think Soros, Kerry, Feinstein and the other fat cats on his side of the fence don't secure a substantial amount of their money outside of the U.S.?

Why don't you get together with Galt, TSM, DB, Carol, Forks, Hilarious, Waxturd, and a couple other Taliban members on here and form a killer squad, you can use Easy Eed as your operational expert, with Flack as the lighting directer, Waxturd could maybe fake the enemy out by pretending to be 20 socks, in the unlikely event that you capture any of ISIS you could use carol as the interrogator after listening to here personal problems for an hour or so they will confess anything just to make her shut the fk up. Good luck and God speed because after the first shot you will all scatter in about ten different directions kinda like a flock of chickens

Yes, it's understandable a reputable source like US News introducing America to Obama's top advisors of which all have sketchy histories in politics would make a liberal such as yourself a little cranky.

Sorry if the truth hurts. You should defend his choice of advisors instead. Pick any one.

What is the liberal thought process except to control thoughts through massive government and social engineering.

Liberalism is full of great sounding ideas such as inclusion, acceptance, dignity, equality, social justice, human rights, and diversity. It seduces the naive and the idealist with its promise of compassion and tolerance. Who doesn’t want peace, harmony and justice? Who doesn’t want to feed the hungry and house the homeless?

Such simple sentiments stir the hearts of the masses. It is a slippery slope philosophy that sucks one in with statements that are hard to disagree with but the Utopian dreams lead to social engineering, the nanny state and the abandonment of common sense.

Its taint touches every issue:

It begins with calls for responsible pet ownership but soon leads to an animal bill of rights, pet guardianship and the picketing of KFC.

Legitimate condemnation of brutal attacks based on hatred leads to homosexual high schools, same sex marriage, gays in the military and the rights of the incarcerated to have the public pay for sex change operations.

Sympathy for the plight of migrant workers somehow compels us to accept and support the millions of illegal immigrants filling our schools, hospitals and prisons and the accompanying multi-billion dollar tax burden.

The call for celebration of other cultures is revealed to be a mere mask fueling the fires of racial and class divisions. This dismantling and suicide of Western civilization continues unabated under the guise and tutelage of smiling bureaucrats. There is no better example than the recently exposed horrible cases of sex slavery and rape of minors ignored for the past few years in northern Great Britian because of political correctness and liberals fear of hurting the feelings of Muslim men.

Principle is abandoned for practicality. Cooperation becomes compromise. Public relations become political correctness. And the path of least resistance leads to surrender.

There is no doubt that behind the appealing bumper sticker slogans and picture perfect ideals (like the Obama campaign) there is a sinister agenda of massive government regulation and control of our daily lives.

It is an agenda that shreds the moral fabric of society (witness the Hollywood writers who preach against capitalism, patriotism, religion, monogomy and violence while becoming wealthy through anti-patriotic movies, mocking of Christians--never of Mohammed--while promoting blood and gore on the screen).

Liberalism seeks to destroy nationalism and sovereignty, promote internationalism and globalism, and carry out its own jihad on tradition, authority, respect and all things Christian.

Its idea of acceptance leads to perversion, compassion to idiocy, inclusion to self-destruction.

The shrill cry of tolerance, tolerance (as long it complies with the liberal agenda)! no matter what the cost or how absurd it may be.

Liberalism demands the complete suspension of judgment with no regard for consequences or the damage caused to society. There is no better example than the liberals war on two parent heterosexual marriage, which caused the destruction of the black family and the resultant multi-generational cycle of poverty.

New Suez Canal project to boost Saudi-Egypt ties
&#65279;

MEGA PROJECT: The $4 billion Suez Canal expansion project will span 35km and is expected to be completed by 2016.
RIYADH: ARAB NEWS
Published — Sunday 31 August 2014
Last update 30 August 2014 11:14 pm


A leading Riyadh-based planning, design, management and supervision consultancy has been awarded a major Egypt contract for the expansion of Suez Canal.
The Egyptian government awarded contracts to Dar Al-Handasah (Shair and Partners) and other Gulf firms worth $4 billion.
Company sources here said that Cairo has awarded major contracts for the construction of a parallel canal in Suez to companies from several Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states, including firms from Bahrain and other GCC countries.
Dar Al-Handasah was selected among 14 bidders and would work with a prime contractor and the Egyptian Army to develop industry and logistics in the canal area.
The new expanded passage will span 35 km and is expected to be complete by 2016.
Under the $4 billion project, Egypt oversees a second passage that would join with an expanded Suez Canal for better trade and to have a transformative impact on the Egyptian economy.
The new Suez Canal project is a giant engine for the Egyptian economy that will give it a strong thrust to potentially end recession and inability.
Infrastructure development will undoubtedly create a large number of jobs that will improve unemployment figures.
The Suez Canal, an artificial waterway in Egypt extending from Port Said to Suez, connecting the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea, made the country a passageway for one tenth of world trade with continuous revenues at hardly any cost.
Dar Al-Handasah, meanwhile, has served the public and private sectors, working on projects with a total investment of $270 billion for over 50 years.
The group has consistently ranked among the world’s top 10 engineering and architectural global consultancies for over 25 years, sources said.

Jason Riley in his new book “Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make it Harder for Blacks to Succeed!!” Liberal Policies has been devastating to the Black Community!!

20 years ago, President Jimmy Carter stated, "The welfare system is anti-work, anti-family, inequitable in its treatment of the poor and wasteful of the taxpayers!!'

Back in the 60s Malcolm X spoke out about how the Democratic Party used the Black community for their own agenda not addressing the community's living standards or job situations, 60 plus years later Blacks are still Echoing the same Grievance!!
