DO YOU HAVE A 401K OR SIMILAR RETIREMENT FUND?
It isn't a trick question or incredibly hard to reply to. Why are you so scared to answer?
Being that you value a person by their bank account, you have already demonized me and most of white America.
If I am poor, does that make me worthless?

And, if you have a phuking 401, does that make you better?

I am richer than you will ever be, in moral worth.

You can sit on that 401 and puke. No pepto for your sorry azz.

And, minorities likely don't have 401's either. Are you better than everyone, because you're a filthy rich liberal?

Let me answer it for you. Many people have no retirement fund because they don't make enough to save for retirement. A job is Just Over Broke and a
form of modern day slavery.
Housing and vehicles are way overpriced so that the average person pays at least four times more than what the real value is. Someone loses their job, then guess what?. The bank tells them to get out and walk.
After 4 1/2 years of Obamanomics fewer people are able to work and support themselves, never mind save for retirement.
That is true. But those azzhole rich basterds like him, stick their big jew noses in the air, as they walk by most of America. He doesn't care, never will.
If he does care, it means he won't be as rich, won't be able to live in gated communities.

Let's burn him!

I only view Obama and his administration as an add on and not a solution to the problem that has been festering for over 30 years. Nothing will ever change until the people in this country stand up to the greed and corruption going on with big business and our puppet government.
I agree with you. How can we stand up, aside from an occupy wallstreet movement?

If we stopped banking, maybe?

It's GE's fault. They sent the lobbyists to Washington, to undermine to American people.
Those lobbyists persuaded politicians to go dirty.

Corporations, using lobbyists, did this.

Your lack of vision is well indicated with this comment of yours. Inability to recognize how Obama is one of the first presidents to bring the issue of inequality out into the open. Bringing to the public for them to begin to observe what the price of inequality produces.
Eight million families evicted from their homes, life time savings wiped out, pensions lost, college graduates with thousands if not tens of thousands thrown to the ranks of the homeless, no jobs, etc. Most of all your concerns with the infrastructure’s corruption can be traced to this ideology of balanced inequality. Deregulated capitalism has already proven how this promotes the siphoning of wealth from the laborers productivity’s wealth to the few at the top. In vast differences in the proportions distributaries. Would you like the distributions numbers and their timeline. This will illuminate as to which of the two parties are responsible for continuously advocating the inequality policies of Austerity. Oh by the way its actually a tad longer than thirty years if you want to go even further into research. I'll just give you the numbers for the 30-40 year segement or I could provide up to 80 years and even over a century.
Obama said he expects more racial strife. He has made it possible. Is that what you want? A president who instigates a race war in our country?

Your Obama did this and, you're licking his azz, all the way.

I'll just debunk one that caught my eye

”Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship…I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,” thus building a wall of separation between church and State.”— Thomas Jefferson

Except proving that Jefferson stated America was not a founded as a Christian nations...which was the task presented.

For the record, Obama said "One of the great strengths of the United States," the President said, "is ... we have a very large Christian population -- we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."

Context is everything. The right loves to take things out of context.

Jefferson DID NOT SAY America was not founded as a Christian Nation. AND when he says we Obama needs to have a mouse in his pocket or say I. When it comes to religious beliefs he may only speak for himself. BUT you are correct about context, and the left love to take things out of context just as much as the right. Sadly Americans have to choose between left and right, and neither one is worth the manure it would take to cover them up.

"America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings." "My family, frankly, they weren't folks who went to church every week. My mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew but she didn't raise me in the church, so I came to my Christian faith later in life and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead."

Typical Intoxicated Teabagger. When all else fails get the shot gun and buckshot the nonsense. Only problem with that is history has demonstrated that Intoxicated Teabagger couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn at 3 paces.
All of your malarkey, we have long ago put them to rest and all your doing as is typical of republicans is evade, distract, hide etc,. History on you, has proven how you constantly do not address the issue presented to you other that the standard derogatory remarks of No Substance and No Facts.

INEQUALITY is the number one problem in the USA.
Obama extends an offer of reducing corporate taxes,{July 30th 2013 Chattanooga Tenn.} to republicans, if they agree to fund stimulus bills for middle class jobs. Republicans reply was as usual. They want the tax cut period and middle class jobs is not relevant.
….An audacious example of how republicans seek their austerity policies. Cut the financial support obligations of the corporate to their laborers and deny any balance to the laborers. Oh I know the trickle down theory, which has been so obviously exposed . Quiet the opposite as the top siphoned greater wealth, beyond their necessities , and in their wake left the labors in unemployment . For rather than redistributing the wealth to the middle class the top horded it and took that fuel for the middle class away from the engines that produced the consumers and the producers.
..Obama couldn’t make it any simpler in exposing the inequality demands of the republicans by stating; “If folks in Washington really want a ‘grand bargain,’ how about a grand bargain for middle-class jobs?” Mr. Obama told a crowd of 2,000.“If we’re going to give businesses a better deal,” he added,“we’re going to give workers a better deal, too.” Obama offered the deal as a concession to get the ball rolling for jobs creation. Republicans reply; It’s the opposite of a concession,” said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio. Republicans view it as a means for Obama to generate $Billions for job stimulus’s .
Republicans House counters by bringing to the floor a measure that would cut multi $Millions of wealth from the food stamp programs. Thus increasing malnutrition and poorer health. Increasing the cost to Health Care. Republicans support increasing poverty in this nation as a direct result of republicans inequality policies.
Republicans demonstrates their support for increasing poverty at the support of feeding the top to further horde off the wealth, of the gained wealth, from the improvised. Consider this example is but the tip of the iceberg of inequality scenarios. Republicans have been refining this for the past 40 years. Far more lays beneath the surface in inequality transactions than meets the eye or even allowed to. By simply observing the U.N.’s Gini coefficient we have a vague idea just where as a nation we stand on inequality and the price of inequality is demonstrated with the ever increasing hollowing out of the middle class, as the impoverished and poverty accelerates. Engulfing the middle class as its goal and enforced by the forces of republican austerity desires.
..C The Gini Coefficient
Gini is a measurement that is used to identify, mathematically, the inequality of individual nations. A rating of one {1} is considered perfect inequality, as a rating of zero {0} is perfect equality.
Nations such as Germany, Norway and Sweden have a Gini of .3 or less.
South Africa and Latin America have a .5 or above.
USA’s Gini in 1980 was .4 Presently it is at 4.7. This is according to the U.N.’s data. Rendering the USA in the category of nations such as Iran and Turkey.
