It always seems to circle back to this inequality thingy.
Down memory lane for Dang.
Here we can "attack" say a tree, which we want to dispose of. Many attack the branches where in one attacks at the roots for more effective immediate results.
Similar to what we have here on this thread. Lets go to the root of the problem. Inequality of our labors productivity distributions.
Price of Inequality is far more expensive to one and all. Inequality properly addressed, that would benefit, yes even the lone hermit in the woods, to his majesty on the throne, if inequality were to be more justified in its distributions.
Now I will provide a video chart which may be more helpful in comprehending inequality as it is presently exist within the USA.
We take care of that problem and the might of the USA would be undisputable through out the world and its Free Markets.
Yes even here in the USA, Austerity has taken its toll. Diminishing our strengths to compete effectively, on the Free Markets Of the World. http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... video chart USA wealth Distributions..

Poorly constructed safety nets. OSHA, OSHA, where forth art thou?
Let us now consider those who lost their jobs. Full time employment dropped by 8.7 million during November 2007 to November 2011. Just as 7 million were entering the workforce for jobs. Deficit to laborers employment can be calculated at 15 million. USA’s unemployment insurance one of the least in the western civilized nations. A safety net in dire need of repair overflowed and tore apart. Generally unemployment insurance was for 6
Months. In the “Great Recession” that was severely underestimated. Unemployment of 1 to 2 years more the norm and growing. Eligibility was used to eliminate sectors of the unemployed resulting in late 2011 inadequacies of only 38% of the unemployed were receiving benefits. 44% never received any benefits. Those receiving benefits, 70% of them, realized their benefits would not sustain them to the next employment. More than 50% of those receiving unemployment benefits, suffered emotional and health problems. Health Care is unavailable to the unemployed, compounding the seriousness of the issue. Middle aged unemployed lost hope of ever finding work. Optimism still high on 70% of all unemployed that they would find work within the next 12 months.. Alas American unemployment is emulating Europe’s long intervals of unemployment scenarios. Affect of lifelong earnings dwindling with every passing day of unemployment.
Insecurity enters the fray. Employed work with visions of pink slips being forth coming. Observing low levels of social protection administered to their fellow laborers exacerbated their insecurities and trust in a failed system. Pensions and health to be offered onto the altars of Wall Street!
Once it was a security to know your pension was secured through government policies that regulated corporations bearing the risk of stock markets investments and or the S.S. net of the government. Now this is under siege to transfer the pensions responsibilities to the laborers at an age where inexperience or a failing of comprehension is to decide and secure their pensions. Been there done that. Does not work out for the average retiree. Failure of that ideology was prevalent during the years before F.D.R.
Imagine had the laborer adhered to the analyst of Wall Street as the “Great Recession” started to blossom. Predatory schemes eating up all their life savings, with no nets to catch them from their fall, to the streets of desolation row. Just as what republicans advocate for our already polarizing labor forces and the increasing inequality of wealth. Note the millions that lost their life savings and or their homes, shelter, health, security with the minimal regulations that was able to blunt the full measure the full scope of the disaster. Now we are to remove even these weak and unreliable safety nets.
Weakness and disrepair to these nets produced losses to retirement accounts.$6.5 trillion loss in housing valuations. Minorities and those that fell prey to the predatory lending schemes were hit even harder. Predatory loans on individuals blew away the American dream for all of them, for decades if ever to return, to one more chance at the American dream. African Americans household lost 53% of their wealth. Hispanics lost 66% of their household wealth. Rendering their assets to less than 5% of the average white American’s. Average white American lost substantially, to $113,149 in 2009. A 16% loss of wealth.

Here is a great quote by Michael Savage.

Teddy Roosevelt said "walk softly and carry a big stick". Obama says "talk loudly and carry a limp stick".

What a total embarrassment to the U.S. that we have in the White House when even the President of Russia shows far more leadership. All we have is a
worthless panty-waist libtard that totally sucks at everything he does, except take vacations.

Speaker John A. Boehner, center, is focused on deficit reduction.
By JONATHAN WEISMAN
Published: September 12, 2013 Inspired this comment.

Speaker John A Boehner is once again following a redundant course. His appeals for help with his Mad Hatter Tea Parties has fallen on deaf ears. Intoxicated Tea hooligans have drawn out their pirate costumes once again. Avast they cry; Do as we say or will make you our hostage and ransom yee off. Captain Eric Cantor hath so decreed it to be so.
Boehner was observe to be at the Secretary of the Treasury’s office, negating the desires of the pirates of 43. Threatening the USA Treasury, that it will suffer a siege as of Oct.1 2013. The siege can be averted if We The People abide by the desires of the pirating mob of 43 and hand over our Obamacare Health Care. Fail to abide and the pirates will lay siege and strangle the nations ability to financially operate until it dies ! Ah a most hardy diabolical plan that has shown profits in the past for these pirating hooligans.
In the past they have successfully strangled the nation to near total annihilation. Wounded with lost of their honorable credit, We The People have since had to pay the booty through the rise in interest that is collected by the lords and masters of the pirating mob of 43. They are referred to as the 1%. Licensing of the pirates is made legal by this sovereignty of the 1%. Revered and honored by the pirates. Reciting their motto of Increase Inequality. Yippee Yay Ki Yay.
Pirates are battening down the hatches. Sailing to lay their siege of the treasury of the USA. Their republican associates claim they can not stop them. Democrats fear the worse and send out the town cries to prepare for the siege. Democrats have refuted and dismissed the pirates negations and will not give in. Mere days remain, as the pirates enter the harbor of Impasse.
Entering the harbor Captain Eric Cantor of the pirate’s ship Intrepid Inequality, gives his final demands. Admiral Reid, as he is boarding the U.S.S Democracy, receives the demands and cast them overboard and declares this battle you wage is futile and will result in your demise.
First mate under Captain Reid, Steny H. Hoyer is whipping up the support and strengthening the ship U.S.S, Democracy for the upcoming threat. Shouts from the pirating Intrepid Inequality, ship could be heard. One maty, Phil Gingery, threatening the mates of the ship U.S.S. Democracy with their political termination. Mates of the ship U.S.S. Democracy sing out with their second mate Richard J. Durbin that all aboard the ill fated pirate Intrepid Inequality ship are doomed, by their inexperience and callow leaders inabilities. Down with Inequality…. Hoooorrrraaahhhh !
Speaker John Boehner remained behind on shore, with all the rest of the republicans pacing about hither and thither. Knowing this doomed out come of the pirating Eric Cantors leadership will come back to haunt them to their demise.
Desperately John Boehner pleads that the at least we must do is reduce the debt. Alas another dysfunctional request from a desperate speaker. All democrats and republicans that have gathered to observe the demise of the pirates, are well aware of the ever increasing in debt reduction has been in service for well over ½ a year. Rendering the speakers request moot. They all look upon this speaker with nodding heads expressing their pity for the level, that this once proud speaker had once held is now gone…
Forbidding clouds of violent storms loom overhead as the two ships draw together.
To be continued next week stay tuned…

Yes I know you are baiting to have this comment repeated once again.
The book,“ Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box. By Bob Deitreick and Lew Goldfarb” inspired the following;
Ever wonder which party is the party to attend to.
Republicans are the worst stewardship in our nations 80 years history. Promoting Inequality through the Income Gap, as one example, of many.

A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..
Now can you tell the difference?
