Of course, they might be Drug Dealers. I guess there's money in that, but not Multi-Millions of dollars, unless you're the head of a Cartel...and they use up all their profits, supplying their own habit, in most cases!

Yeah Dunlapian, I'll have to agree and give "Honestly" credit for seemingly having respect for the Office of the Presidency and for the Man that currently occupies it, even if he doesn't like the job he's doing. I can understand that ...and respect it!
It's what we're allowed to do, in this Country, and the way we're allowed to do it, as Americans!

Look it up on the Internet, Einstein, Sargeant Shriver went to the Appalachians and many Journalists followed him, with video cameras, that were fairly new at the time. Those videos of the little Children living in poverty, are something you will never forget, once you see them!
Shriver came back and began the "War on Poverty" because of what he saw. There's also a Documentary on it on PBS.
You mean, you can't afford a television, Big Shot Business Owner? Ask your Employees(?)...(snicker, snicker), I'll bet they've seen and read about it!

Poverty is relevant.. Can someone be in poverty and still earn more than the gov. issued poverty line? Can a child be in poverty and not be hungry? Can a person, people live in run-down shacks for homes and be happy?(YES>>YES>>Y ES). By our standards, every one west of the Mississippi was in poverty during the 1800s gold-rush to California yet, they did not believe so.

WHile we are on this subject. A little bit ago, A group of () people built a home for this family that lived in some of the worse conditions you are apt to see today.(I mean dirt floors. Trash all about, old cars, junk in front yard, and porch.). Two years after this house was built you could not even tell it it was two years old. The trash and junk was back. The floor although no longer dirt were filthy, cluttered and it was almost dangerous to walk through it from one door to the other. Before these people were not lazy. they worked, they are happy and they eat well. Now they are lazy, they don't work (welfare) and they still eat well (food stamps). We took their pride and souls away from them and made them into automatons. Have you seen any of these lately....I'd bet you have because that is all you liberals do----take peoples pride and souls away from them.

I grew up in squalor, don't talk to me about poverty. Don't patronize me on how these people live(d) I never went hungry, I ate beans/potatoes and pork, I had very little, My clothes were hand-me downs with holes and patches on them. I was happy and found that by getting an education( a real education not a liberal education), you could do anything you wanted to do. You damn liberals are so condescending. You want to bring every body up to you standards or level to ease your conscience. When you give these people your subsidies, you took away their pride and kill their souls. You should have given them a job. You can't do that because of your ideology. You don't believe in work, just handouts. If I could, I would damn everyone of you liberals to Hell but I can't. There is something in me that feels sorry for you and a hope that someday you will see the truth.

Yes, a 4.6% unemployement. The 91% tax rate was for the very wealthy (3%ers)and no one paid that much because of all the tax shelters(deductions for you)that were available. In effect, the 91% tax rate was in reality more than most businesses made. A 400,000 dollar business profit, would have had to pay 365,000 in taxes. OOPs sorry to burst your bubble. The economy was at 4% GDP and growing. Ordinary individuals paid more in taxes than their counterparts today do. In fact, if you want to look at the upper tax brackets, they are about the same today, with all the other taxes (beside federal taxes) that were not there in the 1950's.
Get your facts straight, liberal

Yes the 91% was levied against the top 2-3% and the 91% tax on that was more than most businesses were worth or had.(91% of 400,000 profit was 356,000). How many businesses were worth that back then. OT

Are you Bi-Polar? Man, you go from 0 to 120 in seconds and turn right around and go back to zero, just as quickly. Whether you realize it or not, that is NOT Normal Behavior!
And don't tell me that you've never needed help in your Lifetime, because Everybody has, of some kind. That's what Democrats believe in, helping People when they want and need help and can't do it all by themselves...whatever "It" is. But, you TEApublicans don't want to help anybody, PERIOD!
And if you were raised dirt poor, how did you get an education? Who paid for it? And where did you get the money to start a Business...where did it come from? There is no way on God's Green Earth that you did it all by yourself, without help from somewhere and I know it!
Yet now, you don't want to help anybody else do what you did. You have an obligation to pass the help along, if you received help of any kind, even from the Gov't. or your Family! If you TAKE, you must GIVE in return...that is a Life Lesson that you TEApublicans were never taught, apparently!
And if your success has turned you into the obviously miserable Person that you are, then, I think you should ask yourself what are you doing wrong that's making you that unhappy...and why is missing from your Life that's making you so angry, when you have so much more than a lot of much happier People do? If you're telling the truth, then you are Living Proof that Material Stuff and Money, alone, will not bring anybody happiness.

I did not know that!

Gallup tracks unemployment! And has done so for years. What's interesting is that their figures, based on polling, are generally very close to the official gumint numbers.

For instance, at the end of July, the gumint reported a 7.4% unemployment rate, while Gallup polled 7.8%.

So who cares?

Well, Gallup just reported this month's figure: 8.9%!!!

Whoops! How do you spin THAT?!!

But Obama said he was making jobs his number one priority. He just didn't say he was killing them.

If you read or watched any REAL News, you would not be surprised at any of this because it is OLD News and it's been reported and talked about ad nauseum, as it is EVERY MONTH, when the Jobs Report come out!

You made plenty of them, but they are your opinions. I get the best laugh out of your posts. You actually believe what you are saying is the end all be all. Look, politicians of all parties are not there for you or anyone else. It is all for personal power, greed and money. Demos and Repubs are no different in the end.
