If the Wealthy paid their Fair share of Taxes, then we might have enough money to hire enough Food Inspectors to make sure that our Food supply is safe.
This is not a new problem, it's been goung on since Reagan's Administration, when he and the Republicans cut the Funding for the FDA's Food Inspectors and gutted the FDA's Authority...and the rest is history. "60 Minutes" ran a long Report on the problem because an FDA Good Inspector Whistleblower came forward , warning about all of the dangers we were facing and would surely happen because of it...he was right! And it 's only gotten worse over the years.
So, blame the "Global Economy" shift and the "Trickle down" economy shift and ALL who backed and participated in both! AND, Blame the Ones who will not Shift" all of it back to the economic theory that we had gone by since WWII, that allowed us to prosper and do so well as a People and as a Country...until 1980, when the Reversal of all that, was planned and ultimately implemented...and what we have today is the Result!
Ok if you took ALL the money from 2500,000 up it would only amount to 1.3 trillion. Just about as much as obama spends each year. OH, there would be no jobs available. Why would you work for no income. Go on welfare let the gov pay,. What are "YOU" going to do when the gov. runs out of my money??????????

Ah you want to quote percentages. 2001 the unemployment was 4.3%. In 2006 it was 4.6%, 2008 it was 7.1% thanks to the dem/libs in the house and the senate. You did it to yourself. Lets see obama started 2008 and it 7.1%, 2010 8.4%, 2012 7.8% 2013 (Jan 7.8%) don't look like he did nothing for the unemployed during those years. Except put then on food stamps, and never ending unemployment, diability and of course PUBLIC WELFARE. HE DID GOOD!!!!!!!

The arrogance of the Big Wall Street Bankers is truly astounding! What Planet do they live on???

They will need some Financial Help from the American Taxpayer, again, and it probably won't be that long off...and unless, it's kept a secret from the American People, that'll play He*l getting it!
I reluctantly backed the Bail-out before to save the Nation's Economy, as we were lied to and told the Nation would go bankrupt without it...but you see if I don't go beserk, if we EVER do it again! This just infuriates me! Talk about adding Insult to Injury!

"Frontline" is one of , if not "THE" most highly acclaimed and Award-winning Documentary Programs ever on TV.

It has NEVER been disputed as to the accuracy of it's information. So, just because YOU don't like the truth, because it doesn't agree with the spoon-fed Drivel you get from Fox Fake News, don't even make yourself look like more of a Fool, by trying to attack it's accuracy nor it's reputation. That's all been checked by alot smarter People than you and they could not find anything inaccurate about it...nor denied by the Ultra-Conservatives!

So, take your Little Kindergarten comments about the Source and shove them! "Frontline" reports the TRUTH, on EVERY subject, whether you like it or not!
You might learn some TRUTH, if you would watch it...because you defintely don't know any TRUTH now and you won't learn it from Fox Fake News!

I thought Sarah Brady had passed away, but obviously, I was wrong! Maybe, it was Jim Brady that passed...or maybe, I just imagined it? Lol! I don't really know, but I could have sworn that I read quite awhile back that one of them died and I thought it was Sarah.

You've certainly figured out the Fox Fake News-Watchers' Philosophy that they live by, swear by, and will defend to the end! They gooble that crap up like a hungry Baby gobbles up milk...and act about the same way!

Thanks for providing the link to PBS. Noticed that bit about Alan Greenspan and his belief in Ayn Rand. Have you read "Atlas Shrugged" or "The Fountainhead"? Great books, a real vision, take it for what it is.
All of us could use more education, I know nothing.

I haven't read "Atlas Shrugged" or "The Fountainhead", but I've read ABOUT them, as well as exerpts from them. Actually, I'm not quite sure that I want to read them...I might be tempted to set them on fire before I even got though the first couple of chapters. Lol!

I watched her once on "Phil Donahue", years ago, and that was pretty much enough for me! I didn't want to contribute to her Bank Account by buying her Books, nor make her any more popular. Little did I know that her popularity would zoom out of sight, in future Politics. Who would have "thunk" it?:)

Here is the Link to all of Frontline's programs, so that you can pick your choice. I love them all, just some alittle more than others. I've never watched one that bored me, even when I thought it would. as you can tell, I am a Huge Admirer of this Program.

I found a video of our very own rich-folk hater, Sassy:

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

SASSY:(microphone hum) Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them.

AUDIENCE:(murmurs of agreement)

WOMAN: That's right!

SASSY: Please understand that. However, we are in a moment where the wealth disparity in this country is very reminiscent of the robber-baron ages.(dramatic, possibly pregnant, pause) The labor leaders of that time, though, were ready to kill. They were. They were just ready. It's like, "Off with their heads!"

AUDIENCE:(laughing)

SASSY:(laughing) They were seriously talking about that.

SASSY: They think nothing about killing us.

AUDIENCE:(murmuring of agreement)

WOMAN: Right.

SASSY: They think nothing about putting our people in harm's way. They think nothing about lethal working conditions. Which side are you gonna be on?

WOMAN: Right!

AUDIENCE:(applause)

SASSY: So are we gonna be on the side of justice, are we gonna be on the side of a living wage for every person, or are we gonna be on the side of people whose entire mentality is based on a lie? Job creators.

AUDIENCE:(laughter)

SASSY: Really? Then why have we lost so many jobs?

OFF with their heads! Don't tax the rich. KILL them!

I also like "Frontline" Ayn Rand was a visionary, with your attitude about fire, perhaps you should not invest in them. Her biography is interesting, all she brings to each book is realistic in it's own way, and one extreme liberal that engaged a discussion with me commented that both are very poorly written books.

Ignoring the fact that I'd like to just slap you "sillier"...I DO NOT hate "Rich Folks"! I hate the fact that SOME of the Rich Folks are not and don't want to carry their fulkshare of the Load and moan and whine because they have to even carry a small portion of it, while Everybody else has to carry their full share and it hurts everybody else to do that, whereas the Rich Folks would never miss their Full share!
They think they are "Special" and should always get a Free ride because if their wealth, only! Wealth doesn't impress me, but character, integrity, and a Sense of Fair Play does...and the Rich "Slackers" have none of those things!
