I welcome anyone and everyone to this forum. So, your observation is incorrect.
And of course this has nothing to with your original statement.

What an interesting observation, naturally the same can be said about all that you respond to.

Now, now, settle down.

I know you feel put upon but it isn't the result of any hatred or ill will on my part, you just feel foolish trying to spout that ridiculous Right Wing Wacko claim that any one individual is a match for any one $500 Billion Dollar multinational corporation with 83,000 employees, a legion of attorneys, and almost every politician in America purchased and safely placed away in the company's back pocket.

I simply proved how silly it is to argue that unions aren't essential to developing and maintaining a Middle Class.

I demonstrated how ludicrous it is to claim that any individual worker it employee has the ability to bargain against or with employers; thereby establishing what we all know, the destruction if the Middle Class is directly and positively correlated to the destruction of unions.

I demonstrated that those with the money obviously use their money to manipulate the rules and the system to assure they accuse even more money.

Any person with a lick of common sense or experience understands these are undeniable truths - evidenced every day in the world around us.

Actually, I like people -rich and poor. The rich help make me relatively well off by paying me,(reasonably well), to help them stay out of trouble as they increase their wealth. They all understand the system is rigged in their favor because they paid to rig it. Do you think they are stupid enough to donate Billions to politicians without obtaining a reasonable ROI ?

By the way, statistically speaking, if we both are paying 20% capital gains now- we are in similar financial circumstances.

Now sit down and have a glass if water and contemplate adjusting your paradigm to reflect reality.

That cognitive dissonance has got you down.

Not reading this left wing trash that, I'm sure, has no basis. You must be sore the way your life turned out or something. You filibuster so that you don't have to answer anything. You could have answered the question I asked of you (TWICE, I think) very succinctly. I don't read your boring sputum, so I'm guessing you never answered. I just glanced up and saw that the rich make you relatively well of. You are such a HYPOCRITE. What a disgrace you are to those you SUPPOSEDLY defend.

We have to pretend in Right Wing World that we all have the same opportunities in life.

We have to pretend that upward socioeconomic mobility isn't more often than not a fantasy.

The Social Mobility Fairy Tale

As Bob Herbert wrote in the New York Times back in 2005 “The gap between the rich and everybody else in this country is fast becoming an unbridgeable chasm. Put the myth of the American Dream aside. The bottom line is that it’s becoming increasingly difficult for working Americans to move up in class.”

Social mobility in the United States is, in fact, not very high.

For male workers, income is highly correlated with paternal income, so income inequality simply replicates from one generation to the next.

If economic changes (particularly with regard to the wealth and income of American families) are very real, movement between classes appears no less common now than it’s ever been.

Research by economist Howard Steven Friedman of Columbia University demonstrated that less than 8 percent of Americans born to fathers in the lowest class ended up in the highest class. But almost half, 42 percent, of the American sons of fathers born in the lowest class ended up in the lowest class as adults.

All of this is not to say that something that feels like social mobility hasn’t occured.

The increasing consolidation of American wealth subsequent to that, particularly in the last 30 years, has made the lives of the working class much worse, and it’s certainly frustrating to be stuck in an economic place with no viable exit strategy, but that doesn’t mean social mobility is any different.

You are a white man aged 30 without a college degree.
Your grandfather returned from World War II, got a cheap mortgage courtesy of the GI bill, married his sweetheart and went to work in a factory job that paid him something like $50,000 in today’s money plus health benefits and pension.
Your father started at that same factory in 1972. He was laid off in 1981, and has never had anything like as good a job ever since. He’s working now at a big-box store, making $40,000 a year, and waiting for his Medicare to kick in.
Now look at you. Yes, unemployment is high right now. But if you keep pounding the pavements, you’ll eventually find a job that pays $28,000 a year.

Damn reality.

It interferes with those fantasies that make us feel so much better.

Let's see what happens.
It ought to be interesting.
WASHINGTON -- When $50 billion in disaster aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy came before Congress this year, three of Oklahoma’s five representatives and both of its senators were among the "no" votes.
At the time, some of the Oklahoma lawmakers demanded spending cuts as a condition of aid to the hurricane-ravaged Northeast.
Now that a devastating tornado has hit their state, it's not clear whether Oklahoma lawmakers who demanded budget cuts will continue to hold that line when it comes to their state's recovery efforts.
"When we increase spending in one area, we must cut spending in another area," Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) said in January. "I hope my colleagues will consider this principle in future relief packages."
Oklahoma Reps. Markwayne Mullin and James Lankford, both Republicans, also voted against the $50-billion aid package.
Oklahoma’s Republican Sens. Tom Coburn, who is a physician, and James Inhofe also opposed the measure when it passed the Senate, 62 to 36.
"If an additional emergency aid package is necessary, Dr. Coburn will not change his long-standing position on offsets," said spokesman John Hart, whose boss was headed to Oklahoma to assess the damage.
"We don’t know if an emergency aid package will even be necessary," Hart said, noting that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has $11 billion in its disaster relief fund..
During the debate on Sandy aid, a number of Republican lawmakers challenged whether spending for such things as shoring up defenses against future storms was an emergency, saying that should be considered during the normal budget process.
Great Post! These republicans need to learn a lesson from the Bible " To he who shows no mercy, No mercy will be shown".Now Obama will not be a cold blooded snake like bush was or romney would be. He has already pledged millions to a state that really has been a under a tremendous curse over the past 25 years. Those congressional men you talked about could care less about New Jersey or New Orleans but any republican place in America they are ready and willing. I do believe these republicans are under a special curse from above! They can't wait to TRY and slither back into the White House but Americans have learned a hard lesson under bush.Unfortunely it rains on the JUST( non-Republicans) and the unjust(republicans). So 30% of those in this state could use your prayers and "Government Assistance". Thank our president for not being an arrogant, vindictive scumbag like bush romney and all their supportors. bottom line, keep them far away from our government.

How out of touch you republicans have become! For the rest of us your posts along with the other weird comments from the minority of voters just reminds all of us how important it is to keep you and your King and Queens out of our great and still powerful government. Never again will America allow you insane hypocrites to rule our GREAT country, NEVER! Moore Oklahoma is a town of 40000 and known to be 90% republican. Now they will learn what those in Hurricane Sandy and New Orleans went thru, but this time with a President that will show compassion and not try to seek revenge.

Wouldn't it be instructive to let those Right Wing Wackos in Oklahoma who voted for Willard and Pauly to defund all government programs that helped the average person; and their Right Wing Wacko senators and representatives who voted to defund FEMA, to have the chance to enjoy the true lunacy of Right Wing Wacko policies ?

But no, grown ups are in charge and once again the Right Wing Wackos will benefit from the very policies they try so hard to destroy.

Nothing new there.

Only thing is... in a couple years Oklahomans will forget the dozens of times the federal government came in and bailed them out after a disaster, and they'll get all oatsey and tell us all again how the rest of us are socialists.

And they still won't demand building codes that require basements or storm shelters because they don't want those damn Gov'ment regulations interfering with higher profits.

Them we'll do this all over again.
