Please, take a look at this chart.

http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/...

This is the result of a coordinated assault on the middle-class from Wall Street, Big-Business, Big Medical, Big Pharma, and Big-Energy, and those in the government who are paid to support those entities.

In truth, the war on the middle-class is almost over, the villages have been burned and plundered, the women raped, and devastating casualties left lying in the fields, yet half of those on the losing side haven't even comprehended yet that there's been a skirmish and want to help the aggressors.

Sure anybody can post whatever the want here...

But there's one idiot in particular that just spams the hell out of this thread with crap.

Sure would be nice if that idiot would try and not post EVERY damn webpage he's every visited. Maybe he could just post his browser history instead, for the sake of brevity?

Roughly three-quarters of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck, with little to no emergency savings, according to a survey released by Bankrate.com Monday.
Fewer than one in four Americans have enough money in their savings account to cover at least six months of expenses, enough to help cushion the blow of a job loss, medical emergency or some other unexpected event, according to the survey of 1,000 adults. Meanwhile, 50% of those surveyed have less than a three-month cushion and 27% had no savings at all.
"It's disappointing," said Greg McBride, Bankrate.com 's senior financial analyst. "Nothing helps you sleep better at night than knowing you have money tucked away for unplanned expenses."
Even more disappointing; The savings rates have barely changed over the past three years, even though a larger percentage of consumers report an increase in job security, a higher net worth and an overall better financial situation.

So why aren't Americans saving more?
Last week, online lender CashNetUSA said 22% of the 1,000 people it recently surveyed had less than $100 in savings to cover an emergency, while 46% had less than $800. After paying debts and taking care of housing, car and child care-related expenses, the respondents said there just isn't enough money left over for saving more.
There is no incentive to save, the government took care of that years ago and the feds quantitative easing policy will see to that in the future.
When interest rates on savings remain far below even the artificially low rate of inflation and any interest earned is taxed, well why would anyone want to save money in an account with a bank that might go bust next week?
The government caused the housing bubble, encouraged granting loans to people that couldn't afford them, willfully purchased bogus loan bundles and then tried to blame everyone else.
The fact is that government is not designed, nor was it intended to run every aspect of our lives. The disconnect between the classroom to political cloakroom folks and the everyday lives of those that actually live and work in the real world is a huge part of the problem. Graft is the balance of the problem.

"Israel is working on coordinating plans for a possible military strike with Saudi Arabia, with Riyadh prepared to provide tactical support to Jerusalem, a British newspaper reported early Sunday.
The two countries have both united in worry that the West may come to terms with Iran, easing sanctions and allowing the Islamic Republic to continue its nuclear program.
According to the Sunday Times, Riyadh has agreed to let Israel use its airspace in a military strike on Iran and cooperate over the use of rescue helicopters, tanker planes and drones.
“The Saudis are furious and are willing to give Israel all the help it needs,” an unnamed diplomatic source told the paper."

You're the one whining all the time, and most every post of yours is nothing but an attack on another, with a accusingly hypocritical methodology.

Outraged by paying our own way? Please explain.

Well said, IO.
It appears that BigDave is attempting to say that coal is not a dirty industry, at least on this side of the planet.
It appears that Aggie is trying to say that big-energy is just perfectly fine with being regulated and really cares about keeping our air and environment, they're only looking after our best interests and that mean old government is just being mean. She would have you believe that the coal-industry ISN'T actively trying to eliminate the governments ability to regulate it, or even investigate it for crimes.
Oddly enough, both of them are unintentionally, but quite directly, making a case that regulation is very much needed in the energy industry.
It's hardly worth the effort of replying to them, as proof of the fallacy of their positions has all been presented here before. They show no inclination at all to allow actual real-world facts to sway them from what they want to believe is true.
They just simply refuse to believe the blatant evidence that goes against their world view. Facts just don't sway these guys. You could quite accurately describe them as "unreasonable" in the literal sense - being without reason.
The only reason to reply to them would be the entertainment value of BigDave trying to tell me how coal is clean-energy, and to hear Aggie try to make the argument that big-energy has our best interests at heart, they're good people, just a bit misunderstood.
How clean is wind energy when compared to coal energy?

"Just this week, a former Federal Reserve officer admitted that this Administration’s big-government control of the economy has been an abject failure. Andrew Huszar, now of Rutgers Business School, wrote in The Wall Street Journal that “the Fed may have created and spent over $4 trillion for a total return of as little as 0.25% of GDP (i.e., a mere $40 billion bump in U.S. economic output). Both of those estimates indicate that QE [quantitative easing] isn’t really working.”
Remember shovel-ready? Crony-ready is more apt. Obama’s massive stimulus spending plan early in his Administration funneled money out of the real economy, where jobs are created among small businesses. Instead, his Administration gave multimillion-dollar projects to the politically connected, from labor unions to unproven green energy firms like Solyndra."
http://blog.heritage.org/2013/11/15/obama-kil...
In other words, the agenda of this administration is just another failed attempt to merge the lower and middle class into one.

Especially after the taxes were raised on healthcare.

What's that got to do with the price of tea in China?

I don't know. I've done limited research on wind energy. After a quick google-search most of what I found against wind-energy was either written by coal-companies or by "non-profit" groups funded by coal companies or their owners, or by blatantly right-wing-whacko sites. Assumptions can be made by that very fact.

Are you in the process of building another straw-man argument? Are you asserting that I said something about wind-energy? Are you asserting that wind-energy is the only alternative to coal? Can it even be assumed that you don't believe the world can reduce their energy usage, even before we figure out where the energy comes from?

Where are you going with this?
