Stay on point. My post was about the lie(s) of Obama. What do you have to say about these lies?
If you want to talk about the "fair share" issue, go read the CBO report published last week, in a nutshell it states:
"The top 40% of wage earners in America are paying 106% of all income taxes. The bottom 40% paid a negative 9%." That means that the "poor" receceived a net gain on income taxes, with an additional average of $25,000 in aid programs.
There's more charitable distribution (which comes from the top income earners), and I'd bet that there's more income and wealth redistribution for the poor in this country than anywhere else in the world.

That's the problem, if you can't blame the black man you have no interest. The result has been we now have no real functioning government with a congress that is 2nd all time in passing the least amount of legislation.#1 was a very, very long time ago when little legislation was need, the #2 congress is way ahead of #3, its also very fitting that they are #2 , if you know what I mean.

The GOOD NEWS is the republicans are now fed up, saying the tea party has lost ALL CREDITABILITY!! That's coming from the majority of real Republicans in Congress. Something that has been obvious for many months and has been predicted here on Topix.

You would be wrong about what you amusingly call wealth redistribution, the rest of the world calls it feeding the poor.

The top 1% pays more tax than any other group is a fact never disputed. They also have 80% of the nations wealth that's growing like a wildfire consuming the middle class, while the rest of the country is going backwards like a muddle slide on the California coast. The important thing you want to overlook is the percentage of income paid in tax, that's what REALLY MATTERS. Most rich in the 1% pay less tax as a percentage of income than the middle class pays, that's all that matters. Most people give to charities when they can, the rich do when they can and always do when it means they can keep more money when using charitable contributions to reduce income. Let them give because they feel the moral need to give like the rest of American does. Of course there are many exceptions like Gates and Buffett, but they are not the norm, no more than you are the norm, thank God for that!!!

Wrong, on all counts, but to humor you;

1) Who is blaming the black man, and why is that relevant?

2) Where are your solutions to what you perceive are problems?

Speak now or forever hold your peace.

I bet you are correct!! I bet the Hollywood elite hate poor people just as much as you do. I bet they were laughing their collective butts off as Bush trashed the economy costing middle class jobs giving you and the Hollywood elite more poor people to laugh at!!!
Now the Republicans are pushing for stopping unemployment insurance payments for people suffering from long term unemployment. All due to the Bush recession and the resulting surge in the tea party resulting in government gridlock and more unemployment and more poor people for you and the Hollywood elite to laugh at. I bet your full and fat belly is just killing you from all the belly laughs the poor have given you!!!!

The truth is that's the dumbest question I have ever heard. Each financial situation is different, including the U.S. budget. One might have a higher priority for some and means less or nothing for others because they don't have enough money to live and have no credit line. Or they may have more than they could ever spend and the ability to borrow twice that much. If the rich 1% are ever made to be responsible and be responsible for the same percentage of tax as the middle class the answer would change, duh!!

The grand finale, what should be spent on health insurance? That's much easier to answer, depends on if the tea party were to in some miraculous way to overturn the Health Care Law. If they do, spend nothing, the government will take care of you when you get sick, just like it always has, paid for by taxpayers and people with insurance.
If the law is left alone to evolve the answer is as much as you can afford, the rest if you don't have enough will be paid by government. As the amount of people that enroll over time increases the cost to each will decline ignoring inflation costs of course. Then for the first time in our history people will be held accountable for their own heath care in some form or another. If they decide not to they will pay a penalty and still help pay their own way.

Maybe I have discovered your problem, you either just don't understand or are just not mentally equipped to understand, understand???

Your lack of knowledge of American History is showing once again..
So you are saying that my last statement was wrong? I kinda like how you tried to paint me as a racist. You might be surprised if you took a look at me; you calling me a racist.

Just keep on copying and pasting other people's opinions. Nobody is listening. I look at the screen and all I see is "blah, blah, blah (12), blah, blah, blah (13)". It appears you don't have the time to put it into your own words. Just find some enlightened revisionist history from some pseudo-intellectual who loves the smell of his or her own farts, then copy and paste. Just because it was published doesn't make it true. Frankly, I didn't even feel like reading through another of your copied works.

No matter what anyone says, you will always look for writings that back up your view of the world and put them forth as truth. No offense, but it is really boring.

You can change the subject to how terrible America is if you want, but you will never convince me that Mandela's acts of terrorism, mostly against other blacks, not whites (as if I think that would have been any better), were justified or somehow an example of the end justifying the means. Especially since conditions are still horrible in S.Africa. It is one of the most violent nations in the world and is on the decline. Maybe one group of blacks managed to ascend to some political power, but others continue to suffer at the hands of those in power. I suppose I will never convince you of this fact either. And yet we are told Mandela was a peacemaker. However, an objective view of the situation will reveal that, the "peace" in S.Africa is not what most of us think of as peace; lack of armed political conflict, relatively low violence, racial diversity and acceptance, etc. No, as a well-known communist once said, "Peace is the absence of resistance to socialism."

Enjoy Murphy, NC, if that is your location.

You never really do anything but ask questions.

How about you put an opinion of your own out there and defend it?

What are your solutions?

I have asked you, and others over and over again for your answers and solutions. You're the ones who so hate the "rich", so come on with your grand scheme to solve all of "our" problems. I have put my opinion out there many times and defended it to the point where you guys don't know which way is up. So CB, start answering the questions and providing solutions. Otherwise, you, or whoever, is doing nothing more than bitching.

Last time, last stupid question. It depends on the governments budget, the amount of debt being paid, the amount of interest on existing debt and on and on and on. Again the only thing that matters no matter what all the numbers are is percentage of tax that's actually paid on ones income. The percentage after all the bullshit matters. You want to reduce taxes, reduce spending or raise taxes to cover spending and debt. The debt problem is being blown way out of proportion. Fix the tax situation as far as what the 1% actually pay and get the economy going again and it will all work out.
Things just aren't that simple, never just black and white.

The mindset and long term strategy of the LWLD's is very simple. It's a war of attrition. They will never give up their efforts to redistribute from the top to the bottom. The only variable is how much do they get this year, next year, and so on. Also, it doesn't stop with monetary goals. It will, and has, invade everything you can possibly think of, with no end in sight, including the plight of those they "say" they are trying to assist the most.
