The Evil 1 percent, American households, and 5 years into the OBama Economy!!!!!

'Those in the lowest usual income quintile saw small decreases in median net worth (12 p

Wrong again dumbass!
According to the American Medical Association, the new health law actually "expands" HIPAA rules. The National Conference of State Legislatures explained that under the ACA, the new rules "expand privacy measures," strengthening patients' rights and protections and strengthening the government's ability to enforce the privacy law against other business interests.
You're an idiot Galt; you always have been and always will be!

The Evil 1 percent, American households, and 5 years into the OBama Economy!!!!!

'...The share of income received by the next highest 7 percent of the distribution (percentiles 90 through 97) has not changed over the past quarter of a century, sitting slightly below 17 percent in 1989 and 2013.'

look at this nugget!.

'The wealth share of the top 3 percent climbed from 44.8 percent in 1989 to 51.8 percent in 2007 and 54.4 percent in 2013.'

you are correct...even a 20 year old Airman that served 4 months and got booted on a medical or entry level separation out knows what a '214' is....they have to have it to prove they were in the military in order to qualify for all that wonderful VA medical care....
Ghost is a giant lying sack of walrus excrement....
Hey idiot, no one is denying what a DD-214 is we all have one, but your discharge is a separate certificate all together.. Can you morons not grasp or read? You only prove that you never served moron, anyone that has been discharged from the military knows that it's a DD-214 [not simply a 214] all veterans know that to be true. The DD-214 has all of the pertenent info for the time you served, yes you need it for lots of things because it has all of your info on it...Damn you idiots are well idiots. You are letting your political views influence your anger. Which shows me just how weak you are. Surprize is simply a psycho.

'Ownership of retirement accounts—including individual retirement accounts (IRAs),
Keogh accounts, and certain employer-sponsored accounts, such as 401(k), 403(b), and
thrift savings accounts—fell below 50 percent in 2013,'

How come liberals thought Obama "evolving" about his stance on gay marriage right before an election was perfectly understandable and acceptable but Romney "evolving" over his stance on abortion while a governor justified demonizing him and his change of heart absolute hypocrisy?

Liberals sure have an odd double standard.

The Obama economy!

owning a home is a sure way to accumulate wealth....or at least have a back yard...unless you are a Progressive and in charge of the economy....

'The percentage of families that owned their primary residence fell from 68.6 percent in
2007 to 65.2 percent in 2013 (figure A). The most recent time the Survey of Consumer
Finances recorded a homeownership rate this low was 1995.'

The only thing you are showing is your anger issues, how you arrived at that is your delusion, not mine. Read the book dumbass. You are only an obsessed sheep that obviously has no real life. You are your own worst enemy that you seem to be in a constant fight with.

With Eric Racist Holder and Magic Negro twisting the arm of Lady Justice?
You're not a Pollyanna but a Racist Pig in a wig.
I don't know how you can call me a racist when I haven't made a decision one way or the other in the Brown shooting. You and those like you who are claiming the officer will be "crucified" just because he shot a black man are the "racists". Anyone who disrespects the President of the United States by calling him "Magic Negro" is a racist pig.

I will go where the evidence leads . If there is enough evidence to show that the officer killed Brown out of fear for his life, he will be cleared and I will be happy for him. If there is enough evidence to show that the officer could have subdued Brown without the use of deadly force, he will be tried in a court of law. Either way, justice will be done and that I'm fine either way.

It is not comical to watch the world burn, just as Mitt Romney predicted--and was ridiculed by Obummer and his media lackeys--in the 2012 campaign.
Romney capitalizes on 2012 clairvoyance about today’s global Hellscape with searing op-ed
POSTED AT 8:41 PM ON SEPTEMBER 4, 2014 BY NOAH ROTHMAN
It isn’t so much that former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was a prophet. Just that he had read a book or two.
Throughout the course of the campaign, the turnaround artist and blue state Republican issued some dire but necessary warnings to the American public about how the geopolitical environment was changing for the worse.
In 2012, Romney called it “troubling” and “alarming” that Barack Obama had essentially appeased the Russian bear by offering concessions like the withdrawal of interceptor missile and radar installations in Eastern Europe without reciprocity from Moscow. He said that Russia’s actions have made that nation “without question, our number one geopolitical foe.”
This prompted a flood of scorn and mockery from a raft of self-assured critics.
But by 2014, after Russia had frustrated America’s ambition to contain the Syrian civil war, invaded neighboring Ukraine, and unilaterally annexed a portion of that nation’s territory into Russia proper, nearly all of Romney’s self-respecting critics were forced to concede that he had a point.
In that campaign and earlier, Romney warned that the Islamist goal was the establishment of a pan-Islamic caliphate state which would counter the West and add a grave new military dimension to the ideological struggle against jihadism.
“It’s this century’s nightmare, jihadism – violent, radical Islamic fundamentalism,” Romney said in 2007.“Their goal is to unite the world under a single jihadist caliphate.”
“This is about Shia and Sunni. This is about Hezbollah and Hamas and Al Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood,” he reiterated in a 2008 presidential debate.“This is a worldwide jihadist effort to try and cause the collapse of all moderate Islamic governments and replace them with a caliphate.”
Bingo again.

Meanwhile, Obumbles has finally changed out of his golf shorts and is wearing big boy pants in London.
Reich wingers have been crying this for a while son.

All Romney is doing is repeating the reich wing mantra.

If that's what you call a 'prediction,' he's no different than any other...

Thanks lily, defending him against all of that can't be easy. I was on a TV show with him and Ken Cuccinelli back when he was running for Governor of Virginia, in 09. We had a couple things in common with the military and Fort Hood Texas, although I was there long before he was. He was a big proponent of the Iraqi war and we disagreed on that, actually he was a pretty mild kinda guy. Cuccinelli a different story and far more to the right. McDonnell simply said what he had to in order to get elected. Cuccinelli was way more fanatical in his views on women and all far right views, from abortion, religion and homosexuality, etc, etc.. That's one of the biggest reasons why he lost his bid for Governor against Terry Mcauliffe, he lost the women vote. You know he was the one mostly behind the vaginal probe thing. My personal views of Mcdonnell was that he could be easily led and not really a hard nose like Cuccinelli, actually I still wear the pin that he gave me, which has the great seal of Virginia that say "from the office of the attorney general". He was ok as far as governing went, Cuccinelli was a joke and the kind we don't need in any political position.
Yes Cucinelli was definitely "out there", however McDonnells first order of business as Governor was to take away rights from gays and lesbians.

McDonnell and his wife were definitely in a messy marriage situation, but they're guilty and I hope they do some time just like anyone else.

obviously, you're not a veteran, especially from the Vietnam era.

I can think of plenty of ways to complete 20 years service inthe military and retire at the rank of captian.
Enlisted Combat commission. Even if that commission is rescinded, as many were and you return to enlisted, you retire at your highest rank.
Enlisted Combat Commission to LDO (Limited Duty Officer-in case you didn't know
Warrant officer combat commission. Most helicopter pilots in the Army are Warrant officers, getting a combat commission you probably would retire below at or below the rank of Major.

as for on-line college courses, when I was in the Corps in the late 70's early 90's there were plenty of college courses offered on base after duty hours. The vast majority of CO's encouraged their troops to take those courses and would provide assistance-transportation to other bases, rearrange duty assignments, etc,.

for someone who professes to have served, your knowledge of the military seems somewhat lacking
