LIANO another example of how much Texas has regressed in their intelligence due to republicans austerity endeavors. Still fiddle faddling with no substance or facts. Spewing derogatory ignorance emulating the intoxication of the Tea Bagger.
Significant Finical Inequality in our USA has progressed under republican austerity policies since the early 1970’s. Highest acceleration to finical inequality has been addressed to the USA within the civilized developed nations.
Here in the USA in 2009 Texas rank the highest for finical inequality as Main was the lowest in accelerating inequality.
2011 CBO report illuminates that the top 1% increased their incomes by 275% after taxes over a period of 1979 to 2007. Compare this to a 60% in the middle class with gains of less than 40% to their incomes.
2012 exposes the 1% as having the same gap discrepancy to the 99% as it had in the 1920’s. Exhibiting a 20% increase to the 1% as the 99% suffered at a mere 1% gain.
Robert J. Shiller won the noble prize for economics,{2013} states his findings indicate that this increasing finical inequality within the USA is “The most important problem that we are facing now today”.
Presently populace is far more educated and interconnected than in the 1920’s. An enlighten populace recognizes the patterns of austerity’s restrictions to finical distributions and limited consumers , demands failure of the economics of that institution.
1929 and 2008 let loose the finical institutions to ravage the lower 99%. Profits and further hording of the fuel from the middle class dynamos for wealth flow and consumption. Final outcome were the “Great Depression/Recession” in our nations history.
All of the southern states suffer under an inequality that rivals the 3rd world nations of Africa. Interesting that they be “RED”. LOL the REDS have invaded the USA !
Observing Texas, with its extreme admiration for austerity polices, it becomes easily recognized their impending collapse. Reluctance and direct obstruction for the 1% to adhere to their laborer’s productivity distributions, in ratios that continues to fuel its middle class dynamos, will simply implode their debt upon themselves.

What is up with the name calling? I only asked a question..... there was no need for the name calling sir. Does it make you think that calling people names and talking to others like you do make you tough or something? Does it make that little peck grow? I think not SIR.

Well, stick to worrying about your little fur patch and I will stick to worrying about my little peter. You obviously have the intellectual capacity of a rock and trading

I guess it's rather obvious by Piglosi and her little statement that they view themselves as royalty and us as ignorant peasants. Their actions of ramming ObamaCare which is nothing but consumer fraud down our throats speaks for itself.

Our government had already been overthrown by a bunch of white collar criminals years ago. Every one of these maggots should be dragged out of DC by their throats and tarred and feathered for crimes against the American people and the U.S. Constitution.

We are dealing with an oligarchy, not public servants.

Actually welfare could be vastly reduced as well as subsides to corportions, especially the one’s that produce record profits!
What gets us into this mess of too much welfare and too little is created with Financial Inequality. Example Fast Food Chains and Wal Mart employee wages are below the living standards. Requiring say for an average Wal Mart store the taxpayers must shovel out $900,000 per store. That they operate for welfare scenarios. Snap, Housing subsides, Food stamps, etc., etc., LOL those food stamps are then cashed in at Wal Mart ! Employees receiving wages at or above the living wage is not qualified for welfare programs.
Republicans job is to siphon wealth to the elite. Democrat’s job is to level the playing field by distributing the wealth from any abuses of extremeness in financial distribution. Observe the chart provided and you decide if Buffet was correct when he said,“Yes we are in a class warfare and we are winning”

For a more detailed explanation a Nobel Prize winner in Economics wrote a book that is layman friendly.“The Price Of Inequality” by Joseph E Stieglitz. Puts all foxy propaganda to rest. World renown economic authors and statisticians have proven who is the responsible party for increasing our financial inequality and which increases the debt to the nation by twice on average with every administration they get into office, and its not the democrat party. Now guess which one it is?

Gin don't mind defiant he suffers from a childhood affliction and never was able to mature. I call it the Peter Pan Syndrome. Medical field describes it as O.D.D. Google it and observe how many of the right wing labor under similar mental handicaps.
Have had the pleasure of his company for about two years now. Estimate he is 59 years old. His children ignores his rants and simply pity him. Suspect he is on Disability and collecting from the very government he constantly bashes. LOL and he does not vote??? So much for one engulfed within his delusions of "Straight and turn at the second star on the right"...Yes such are these that walk amongst us.. Sad, sad... He has a lot of Tin Hat facts.

Here is one that gets his panties in a twist.
You can’t figure out the difference betwixt the two parties?? LOL put your Tea down and sober up then research. Here is one example of a difference by world renown statisticians.
. Lets put the two parties to the numbers..
Inequality has demonstrated its destructive effects to our democracy through out history. Here and abroad. Here if we take the past 80 years and examine in detail what stimulates inequality distributions, we may define a tool to gage our vote. Identify who contributes to a greater distribution of our laborers productivity. One example is Obamacare. Effectively redistributing health cost with a progressive cost to premium in ratio to “income not health”.
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.
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..
http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali... . He is fun to play with. After all he is a child.

Don't quite comprehend what you are saying? Only liberal republican I'm familiar with is termed as the progressive conservative. Theodore Roosevelt was one of their best and another was Ike Eisenhower although he never admitted it.
I do speculate as I have in the past that this last Financial Debacle of 2008 was constructed similar to their 1929 Financial Debacle will stimulate a revision within the republican party to once again embrace the progressive republican once again. Tea party illuminated the demand for the progressive republican to return before their party is no longer of sufficient value. Similar to the Libertarian party. Faint voices in the wilderness and diminishing.
