Gee that’s a good point. Think that’s the Tea Parties Slogan. What do you hate? Ho, ho…
CEO’s Inequality
Inequality In The USA. Has the highest level among the advanced industrial countries. Comparing to some such as Hungary, Belgium and France which have no significant increases to their inequality. Where in as the USA has been increasing to be more aligned with Iran, Jamaica, Uganda and the Philippines.
GDP does not take into account the measure of inequality. Does not measure the security of its citizens.
All boats rise equally on the rising tide is no longer applicable here in the USA. We have harbors that restrict through manipulation the rising tides. The few affluent yachts at the open end of the harbor suffer no restrictions of significance, equal to the manipulated incoming tide, to the boats in the restricted harbors. Tide dams have been erected to offset the flow of rising tides within the harbors.
Example; Presently USA CEO’s have 200 to 1 ratio in income to the average laborer. Japan as one example has a 16 to 1 ratio. Less than 50 years ago USA had a 30 to 1 ratio. This rising inequality has stimulated additional wanna-be’s executives to seek the same. One example can be found in the UK. The UK’s “High Pay Commission” reported that their top executives were approaching Victorian levels. Presently though they are at the levels of the 1920’s as measured for inequality in laborers’ productivity distributions of wealth.
Sweden, UK and additionally some of the Scandinavian nations and some within the European Union have taken steps to nip this inequality of distributions. Restricting CEO’s pay to a ratio of corporations earnings and out law golden parachutes. Bonuses and gifts as well. There is a provision that allows for parts or all to be circumnavigated if the voters agree. That is, not the voters of the corporation boards but all citizens voters. Sweden passed it in 2012 the others are putting it up for debate and or vote by their citizens.
USA…. the thundering sound of crickets on the issue.
USA seems to disappoint you old boy. Well, I heartily extend you a"Welcome To The Club" my fine liberal friend.

HA, ha you can be so funny. Thought you were savvy enough to know the Governor of AZ. Back into the chasm you go..
Time to paint ourselves as the Indians of 1773 and run down to the voting booths this 2014 and cast out the Tea. Out unto the waters of political oblivion. Republicans od sound mind and integrity will help us in that endeavor.
Senator Susan Collins {R Traditionalist} of Main,“finds it baffling that it’s a small minority of our caucus, that is holding up going to conference, when our party for years, has argued that we need to have a budget. Without a House conference we can’t possibly complete action on it.”
Senator Marco Rubio {R Tea Party} of Florida argues that we should continue to support the ideology that ONE Senator can have the power to hold the USA Hostage and Ransom it off to what that Senator desires.
Democrats counter with the need of raising the debt ceiling to cover the cost of the Congresses’ expenditures. Republicans inability to produce a bill for a budget, mandates this process of hand to mouth budgeting scenarios. Ideologies of the Tea Party pirates lurking in the shadows .“Our Way Or The Highway reverberating through our Congressional Sacred Hallways.
Damn, I don't know who Gabby Giffords or John McCain or Sandra Day O'Connor or William Rehnquist or Barry Goldwater or Janet Napolitano oh wait they are from......

What do I hate Bernard? The attrition of freedom in America. The ever increasing number of laws that inundate the citizens of this land. The illegality of marijuana. The huge amount of my fellow citizens who are imprisoned. The fact that organic food costs a fortune. The fact that we breed lawyers like cockroaches but have a shortage of doctors. The fact that no matter how mundane the felony, we disenfranchise the felons from their ability to vote, and brand them for life. So tell me Bernard. Do I sound like a liberal, a conservative... Or a human being? You seem to have all the ready answers.

So "debunk" the fact that our troops are considered possible terrorists by Janet Napalitano and Barry Soetoro. "Debunk" the fact that our troops are
under scrutiny for anti-Obama thoughts. The answer is that you can't.
Sounds like the actions of a very paranoid bunch of criminals that run our government, but you should know that, you worthless O-bot.

If you really want reliable info on Big Sis and the Dept. Of Homeland Stupidity, you can Google it your own damn self and find lots of sources. Same with the "special" treatment of our troops who don't like Obama.

I bet you probably need someone to wipe your lazy a$$ for you, you stupid drone. You also don't like the truth about your masters so

By Mary Kate Cary, Thomas Jefferson Street blog

In February, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano testified before Congress, and according to news accounts at the time, she purposely did not use the word "terrorism" at all, especially regarding any attacks against the United States by militant Islamic extremists. At the time, the Associated Press reported that she was the first chief of Homeland Security to drop the word "terror" from remarks to Congress.

So it was a surprise yesterday when the Huffington Post published an unclassified report that Napolitano sent to local law enforcement officials around the United States, warning them that "the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks." Other parts of the report mention veterans as potential recruits to terrorist cells as well. This is the thanks they get from a grateful nation? Apparently not.

Secretary Napolitano wouldn't use the word "terrorists" to describe extremists who carried out the 9/11 attacks, but she did use it to describe returning American soldiers who have kept us all safe from terrorism. Yesterday, the head of the American Legion wrote her a letter asking for an apology on behalf of all those serving our country. She went on the morning shows this morning and downplayed the whole thing as "Washington spin." On MSNBC this morning, she agreed to take only one question on the controversy and said everyone should "take a deep breath," a phrase which always makes me feel like the person saying it thinks the rest of us are a bunch of two-year-olds. Her response came across as condescending, and she seemed annoyed at the question.

If you read the whole report, you'll see that it's full of speculation and "potential" rather than actual threats. One thought struck me while I was reading it: Why was this unclassified in the first place? It was a mistake to put this report out to local law enforcement, where it was sure to get leaked to the press. But it was an even bigger mistake to write it at all. Our vets deserve better.

Like I said retard, you can find lots of info if you go look for it instead of trying to engage everyone else in mindless busy work which
is all that you are capable of.

Probably the time lapse is a little shorter here on Earth than it is from your planet of Uranus. After all, you already have spent a whole lifetime there.
