Reporter, if you want rural philosophy, go to a feed store, auction, or farming related internet forum, and you'll get regurgitated Fox News and Limbaugh spew, mostly, due to the limited availability of high-speed internet in WV. A WV connection does not automatically mean a rural orientation. Maybe you can see some woods and fields from downtown, but that doesn't make us all rural. Are you saying that your comments were not of rural perspective ?
Just what do you mean by rural? I live on a few acres in the countryside, but used to live in town. I have some chickens. One of my neighbors has cows. I drink beer, but also good wine. I'm not a hick. I have a college degree. I have guns, and also like to read. I drive a hybrid and a pickup. I like classical music better than mainstream country music, but also like old-timey music and bluegrass. Not everyone in WV is a redneck, it just seems like it sometimes.

You still haven't answered my question about the article you posted this afternoon about Obama and the President of France visiting Monticello. If you are going to be offended by something, you ought to be able to state why when asked. Otherwise, please quit posting inconsequential bulldooky just to hear yourself squawk. I asked which part of the article disgusted your twisted little soul the most. Was it the fact that the host of the visit was half Kenyan, or that the visitor was all French?

"quit posting inconsequential bulldooky just to hear yourself squawk?" So if you practice what you preach, I guess that the above was your last post.

The point has been made before that Republicans are unwilling or unable to answer questions about what they have posted, This instance is another confirmation of that.

Today an article appeared by Robert Reich entitled "America Has Forgotten its 3 Biggest Economic Lessons."

I know the sheeple conservatives will cry foul since it isn't something coming directly from their Fox "News" propaganda feed, but there is a profound amount of truth in these three simple lessons.

http://www.salon.com/2014/02/12/robert_reich_...

"Why has America forgotten the three most important economic lessons we learned in the 30 years following World War II?

Before I answer that question, let me remind you what those lessons were:

1. America’s real job creators are consumers, whose rising wages generate jobs and growth. If average people don’t have decent wages there can be no real recovery and no sustained growth.

In those years, business boomed because American workers were getting raises, and had enough purchasing power to buy what expanding businesses had to offer. Strong labor unions ensured American workers got a fair share of the economy’s gains. It was a virtuous cycle.

2. The rich do better with a smaller share of a rapidly growing economy than they do with a large share of an economy that’s barely growing at all.

Between 1946 and 1974, the economy grew faster than it’s grown since, on average, because the nation was creating the largest middle class in history. The overall size of the economy doubled, as did the earnings of almost everyone. CEOs rarely took home more than 40 times the average worker’s wage, yet were riding high.

3. Higher taxes on the wealthy to finance public investments — better roads, bridges, public transportation, basic research, world-class K-12 education, and affordable higher education – improve the future productivity of America. All of us gain from these investments, including the wealthy.

In those years, the top marginal tax rate on America’s highest earners never fell below 70 percent. Under Republican President Dwight Eisenhower the tax rate was 91 percent. Combined with tax revenues from a growing middle class, these were enough to build the Interstate Highway system, dramatically expand public higher education, and make American public education the envy of the world."

So you disagree that an economy based on supply and demand does not do better when the majority of Americans have livable wages and disposable income to purchase goods?

You also believe that excessive tax breaks for the wealthy create jobs when 88 percent of the individual wealthy do not own a business?

And you disagree that the wealthy should be taxed the same percentage of their income/assets as the middle class so that our country has revenue to repair infrastructure and create jobs?

How are your beliefs logical, Fitness?

How on Earth can you justify them?

Value work? Then tax capital at the same rate as labor.

Hardly.

We have steadily reduced taxes on the wealthy by almost 30 percent since the Reagan Administration. We are now at the point were it's possible for millionaires to pay no taxes if they invest their money the right way and access loopholes Republicans refuse to close.

Meanwhile, the tax burden has not only shifted to the middle class, but the middle class now subsidizes the low wages paid for by many companies in the form of welfare for their employees.

As a result of more than thirty years of tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations, America's infrastructure is collapsing and the jobs we once created by infesting in infrastructure have disappeared.

Why do you let the super rich use their propaganda to make you believe things that are against your best interest Fitness?

Why do you let them use you?
