Im sorry but money and material items has destroyed and distorted what "life" was originally supposed to be about.
You CAN have so much more without the 1%, its just easier to "go with the grain" than to standup as a human, when you know your being done wrong and being used as a basic slavery tool. Each day we go more bankrupt than we actually are, and you have people like me and many others, trying to warn people of the impending doom, but sadly everyone is consumed by this materialistic lifestyle, that means "jack shit".
The tax cuts are not even close to being the issue, even though they are an issue. Its about the percentages of loans handed out, to OTHER countries at rates that are basically nothing or next to nothing. The world bank cartels are the public enemy number one, who has destroyed the entire principle of "helping" or "monitoring" funds for the general public. They have found ways to corrupt its very existence and extort anyone who is not within their "group(s)".
Once again also, the federal reserve is also an equal problem in the world and ESPECIALLY for the US. For they print even more money to "fix" current debts and too be able to "pump" money into the economy. Sadly its ALWAYS ends up getting soaked right back up into the already massively rich corporations,banks,equity firms,and person(s) from which control ALL scenarios in the first place. So yeh they should absolutely pay some fuckin taxes and be taxed even more, unless your stating its ok too be greedy as shit, which is beyond inhumane in the first place.
I personally do not live off the government or have ever needed or wanted their help. For I know then, they "own" you EVEN more than they already do. There are no freedoms left in this country what so ever, when compared to MANY other REAL freedom based countries.
Take Care
You mention the federal reserve quite a bit. My question I am curious about is if the dollar is de-valued to worthless, what will the wealth of the federal reserve be in the end. also can you elaborate on this independent bank,(non-govermental),and why are the actual owners of this institution, held a secret. And to sum it up, what is the end-game to all this in your opinion? Thanks

Well im not really sure, what use you would have with the fed reserve? Its not even part of the country? Even the officials are not elected by any other body of citizens or through congress...

I believe the whole entire program should be scrapped, along with the US treasury who has been part of the IMF for many years also.

The independent bank all depends on what loans and how much of its actual reserve it holds at the end of the day. In my opinion if their dollar value is "soft" then they get dropped also, which I am sure they will have to redo everything, jst like everyone else.

I do not even think a current monetary system should be displaced in general, until there is something globally dominating and AGREED, in the whole world, unless we are going to stick with our own resources and produce EVERYTHING ourselves. WE are bankrupt, so basically everything on a treasury bond or loan, is going to be so far gone, that it will never attain profitability again. To find a "new" system is the very key, to OUR existence as a nation in general. MY generation and the next will never see this nation as a "super" power again.

What was you preferring then, very interested in hearing options, unless your under the illusion that our dollar is still worth something.

Take Care and by the way I do not own any cats and do not use my tongue to type, you kind of get tired of being "shit" on, when your only trying to help. Hence, I do not check it as often as I did.

And I'd be tempted to knock your teeth down your throat for thinking you or your business would have a penny without the workers who actually get the job done you greedy self absorbed piece of shit.
Think I'm wrong? Take this simple little test...
You take a day off work and see how much less product or services are produced by your company that day. Now give the day off to all your employees and see how much product or services are produced on that day.
Sure as an owner you're entitled to make a profit and an above average income since you put up the cash to get things going, it's your name on all the bills, and you carry the liability. As a human and an American though you should also be thinking about the big picture and how your actions effect the lives of those who are your loyal employees, if you don't then you're just a greedy sack of crap and a contributor to the mess this country is in.
Like I said before, if you can't live on 9 million dollars a year instead of 10 which would allow about 50 minimum wage employees to keep their jobs and eek out a meager existence, as well as helping America and your local community while you enjoy your mansion and cars or whatever floats your boat then you're just a pathetic greedy little f**k.
If you have health problems where you don't think you are going to live to retirement age, what make you think you can knock somebody's teeth in without eventually getting your ass kicked?

The computer keyboard makes anyone brave I guess.

Well Pops, I guess since I'm not quite dead yet and the fact that my ailment really has no effect on my ability to defend myself or go on the offensive if I choose I feel pretty damn confident that I could still knock out a few teeth if need be.

Yes, a keyboard does make some people very brave, but it also allows those who can back up their words the means to converse. My advice to you, keep your pie hole shut and don't make assumptions.

When you back up your words with nothing but filthy language and lame threats, you might as well place a huge neon sign over your head that says REDNECK. Who the hell do you think is even paying attention to your banter. My advice to you - go do something about fixing your miserable life.

Until the middle class American or Atleast half of us agree to BOYCOTT a FRIGGIN WALMART for ONE LOUSY Day.... We can't do anything about the 1% that control us...it's our own damn fault. WE ALLOW IT !!!!!!

Fact : 6 members of the Walton family have as much money as 193,000,000 Americans........and they STILL WANT TO SQUEEZE THEIR EMPLOYEES.

Now, they are going to work their asses of on thanksgiving day and WE ARE GOING TO LET THEM...

Their billing us for killing us....it's not capitalism, people...it's monopoly and it's gotta stop.... The only thing you can depend on greed for is that it is CONTINUOS and WILL NEVER STOP...they could have EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD and THEY WOULD NOT STOP.

Sop shopping for one GD day and they will react. It would put absolute FEAR into them when their sales for one lousy day was ZERO.

My own daughter told me today that they are going to walmart tomorrow.... I have had enough of my own daughter.....F HER TOO.

You blame Walmart but never mention Target, Kmart, Sears, Kohls, or a hundred other department stores that are open on T-giving. What about the gas stations, restaurants, etc that are open on T-giving and Christmas day..should be boycott them all too?

Sure, why not?
I mean really are the employees of all those places any less important or less deserving of being able to celebrate an American holiday than you or I.

Thanksgiving is truly an American holiday that dates back to the earliest times of our country and is a part of every American citizen's heritage. It's pathetic that it's been diluted to nothing more then a shopping spree to further line the pockets of the greedy profit before people corporations.
Is your life so fragile that you can't deal with everything being closed for a day so everyone can be with family and friends? Will you just upshit and die if you can't buy some new gadget for yourself at 6am Friday instead of 9PM Thursday? It's funny how those within corporations who will have the day off have no problem demanding that those who actually do the work inconvenience themselves and go without just so they can squeeze every last penny out of consumer pockets, this is even more sadly ironic on Labor day. Federal holidays should be for everyone or no one.

You're blaming the wrong people JCM. If people weren't willing to go buy things on Thanksgiving, then these businesses would not be open. Also, consumers always seem to look for the businesses with the lowest prices. Well guess what, the businesses with the lowest prices are the businesses with the lowest costs. The businesses with the lowest costs are the businesses paying lower wages and importing their products. If consumers used other factors besides price to determine where to buy, Walmart wouldn't exist. There is plenty of people to distribute the blame against.

Interesting thing about a free country. If you don't like your job or you think you can do better, there's nobody stopping you from quitting and pursuing your dreams!
Just don't blame others for your own failures!
Thanks for that tid bit of worthless information, captain obvious. Here's how the thing works. Corporations are owned by Wall Street and people with more money than you can dream of. You're impressed with them because they wear a suit. You think that it's OK if the Fing THEIF is wearing a suit. You're literally that easily swayed away. In other words , you're stupid. The Wall Street thugs want every penny that you have too and you're barely making your child support payments. Your answer to everything is TO QUIT. Hell, these people don't want to quit. Their not quitters, like you. Wen a company treats them unfairly, they have the GD duty to oppose them, not run.

Now go waddle off and get yourself another turkey sandwich and bear in mind, it's likely that you're eating a relative. Be sure to be down at the churchitty church....you imbisil. No offense

Ill never shop at walmart again, ever. Finally someone with a real sense of country sends out an intelligable post . If we don't DO SOMETHING against these corporations, they will rule over us.....walmart is only here because they can't be in china.....I hate the Walton family and I hope that they all contract pancreatic cancer this year.

You know. America is to blame for America . Nobody else. These places wouldn't be open if people could agree not to go there. But getting America to agree on a single thing is impossible now. And Fox News has seen to that. We have been played like a fiddle by the powers that are TRULY running America.

So instead of moving on, you'd rather whine and complain. Everyone else owes you a living and all your problems are their fault not yours. An honest days work seems to be a foreign concept to people like you these days.

Well, let me explain it in terms a 4th grader could understand for you:

I don't know that I completely agree with you but you do make some valid points. I think I'm blaming the right people, maybe I just didn't include everyone that should be blamed. As for consumers always looking for the lowest price goes, yes that's true enough. We all want to get the most for our money but the price and availability of (insert your product here) will be the same Thursday at 9PM as it will be 6AM Friday, the store has what it has and that's it. So opening doors Friday morning instead of Thursday night allowing retail workers to celebrate the holiday with family has no effect on price or availability. The only thing it changes is how long some idiot sits in their tent or lawn chair camped out waiting for the store to open so they can frantically run around like a chicken with it's head cut off fighting over products.

I agree, however I was addressing the fact that Walmart pays low wages. The reason is people shop at the places with low prices. But that is only 75"% of the problem. The other 25% is with internet sales. People gravitate towards low internet pricing. Internet pricing is low because they don't charge sales tax. No sales tax means property taxes get raised. The reality is that some, not all, of the people that scream for more tax revenues are the ones who will only shop at the places offering low prices and who will opt to purchase goods on the internet. They are basically screaming for a solution to the problem they helped cause. In short, the American consumer is to blame for some of the things talked about here.
