Still evading distracting, no substance or facts. Just an EMT Pot! Ha, ha..
….. The Price Of Inequality
People from around the world heard the shot that crippled the financial markets. Shot originated from our Wall Street! Suspects were the Banks to big at fail.
Years of 2007 to 2008 exposed the flaw of the means and ways the USA defined their GDP. Foreign nations discovered that Inequality measurements were not represented.!
.. Symphonizing of the siphoning of wealth from the improvised lower classes to be horded by the 1% minority. Orchestrating with fine attentive desires of greed. Filling their coffers’ treasuries and outsourcing their horde for safe keeping from the Tax distributing environment of their beloved nation.
Melodies of bankruptcy erupted across the nation for over 8 million families homes. Tuning with increasing unemployment. Enveloping all within the finical ballroom. Students waltzing with tens’ of thousand of debt with no work available. Alas as the bell tolled for them at midnight, as they returned to their homeless rewards.
Millions more would soon accompany them with lost savings and defunct pensions. Safety nets that once retained them from such desolation, were sold to the highest bidder of their political domains. Strongly suggestive signing calling for the forced retirement to the improvised laborers.
Americans dreams of secured homes sold for less than its hard earned purchase. Vacancy was the norm through out the nation. Disrepair and lost of upkeep to properties festered on the infrastructures of a once proud majestic nation.
After shocks from the Great Recession will continue to affect this molding Nation until at least 2018 before complete repairs can be considered accomplished. The Price Of Inequality was merely illuminated for a brief moment in time, of the cost of inequality. Inequality has been eroding this nation for over a century. Inequality in the past 40 years has accelerated similar to the years before the 1929 Great Depression with similar results.
Within the bastions of the horded wealth, the symphony played on. Rejoicing in the price of inequality. Distributions of wealth being divided up with the 1% receiving one fifth of the nations income with the largest share to be rewarded to the 0.1% to the tune of 33% of the national income would be transferred to their coffers due to their wealth of assets. Some of which is rent control of national resources, politics and of course the media. Some assigned to continuously orchestrate the tune of A La Propaganda.
Tunes that are required to distract any observation of siphoning as was occurring during the years of 2002 to 2007, to the tune of 63% of the National Income to the 1%.
Alas had this been more evenly distributed the ballroom would still be overflowing with celebrations of prosperity for one and all.
You keep making excuses for blacks to butcher one another.Why? Are blacks committing murders far out of proportion to their population a result of slavery and unequal treatment? Because they were slaves, they should now exterminate themselves to extinction? The War on Poverty was a trillion plus dollar failure.Instead of excusing the annihilation of generations of blacks, don't you think we should find a way to stop this brutality? Things have got to change.I favor an attempt to give these kids some type of family, besides GANGS, and I believe it will benefit us all to do so.Gangs, Bloods, Crips, Aryan Brotherhood, Mexican Mafia, Texas Syndicate, are parasites who destroy by offering a false"family"to identify with, and belong to.I ask you straight out Forand, what is your opinion?

No worries waco, BF, is still stuck in the last century. Look at the data he slings out here. The 1940's, 50's, blah, blah, blah. This guy is such a blowhard he could fill the Hindenburg. He a wannabe "think tank" professor. He'd never make though because of his inability to absorb CURRENT statistics. All BF can do is expand a topic so he thinks every sentence is fact. Don't give the guy a venue, he's a clown.

If you ever get a short and honest answer out of Blarney, I will probably go into shock. Blarney and his ilk have no reasoning skills or solutions to
anything other than trying to control everyone who is an honest, law-abiding citizen to start with.

Law-abiding citizens are the best targets for liberal control freaks who like controlling others. Why?. Because the gutless pantywaists are too
afraid to try dictating to the actual problems in this society. Keeping millions on welfare creates social programs for liberals.

The Liberal dogma in this country has created a class of sub-humans who despise the very same people that support them through tax dollars. The
War On Poverty is a classic example of what happens when liberals are
in charge of anything.

Bernie, you are a hero by taking the time to tell exactly what had happened. Republikans will not understand because the truth hurst and they all live a life in total denial. And to those that disagreed with you, the only explanation is because they have their head so far inside their anus with an open mouth tasting and swallowing their own waste. HAHAHAHA! yep they all like to eat their own sh*t.

Can you remember the promises that the blamer-in-chief made in 2008?. I guess these broken promises were all Bushes fault too huh?.

“I promise 100% transparency in my administration.”.

“I promise NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year.”.

“I will allow 5 days of public comment before I sign any bills.”.

“I will remove earmarks from PORK projects before I sign any bill.”.

“I will end Income Tax for seniors making less than $50K a year.”.

"I will bring ALL of our troops home within ONE year."

“I’ll put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN so everyone can see who is at the table!”.

“I’ll have no lobbyists in my administration."

"I'll close Guantanamo."

"I'll resign if I don't cut the deficit in half by the end of four years."

"I'll unite the people of this great country"

Nothing but page after page of finger pointing Blarney?. Face it, the current regime is totally devoid of ideas to help the middle class prosper and only exists to serve the corporate masters who want to enslave us more.

Defiant has a memory problem. Have stated several comments with facts that he evades, distracts with no substance or facts.
There may be help on the way for that dysfunction. MIT has discovered how to select specific memories and repair them. They would have a field day with dysfunctional individuals such as defiant.
Interesting development. Some day will we be able to forget what makes us ignorant and replace it with what makes us intelligent?
Will pessimist become more optimistic and optimistic become more pessimistic?
Will we ever achieve the position where we can forget our insanity and replace it with rational intelligence?
Wonder if they could help with those that have an exam coming up?
http://www.ted.com/talks/steve_ramirez_and_xu...

Now defiant try being specific as to what you disagree with without babbling.
Defiant emulates the Intoxicated Tea Partiers. Why even the S.C. right wing conservative republicans are attacking their Tea Partiers. Stocking the primaries with new candidates to oust the Tea Party candidates that have run amuck. LOL Even his Ted Cruz Senator {Texas} has stooped to Rove tactics by orchestrating a protest against his defund Obamacare rally. Two or three shouting USA, USA, USA puppet protest. Guess he thinks this callow demonstration will gain him support. Perhaps amongst the dysfunctional nuts like defiant, that will strike a chord. They are for Shutdown, Hostage Ransom, our way or the highway ideologies is the way to go. Republicans are in deep do do with such disastrous tactics. 2014 coming up, show them how deep in that do do their in. We the people require actual leadership and not stone age pirates for our democracy.
In slaving of our population is orchestrated by the 1% that own those coperations. Typical nut assessment; that it has been the liberals that have been trying to regulate those ideologies of inequalities of corporates and the too big to fail Banks and poorly regulated Wall Street CEO's. DUH guess who is OBSTRUCTING those regulations?

What you call excuses are proven facts. Simply put yourself in the same scenarios of the African American. For over a century subjugated to second or third class citizenship. Last to be hired first to be fired. Harassed by the police and or held guilty for crimes they did not commit. How can they have structured peaceful family life? Families break down and to maintain their social perspectives they digress into gangs. Back to archaic tribal affiliations, with Tit for Tat scenarios. Try it sometime. One guy did do just that with a medication that turned his pigmentation from whit to black.{Black Like Me; book} Went down South and got an education of the white mans ignorance, first hand.
Trillion dollar war on poverty? State timelines.
Presently Obama is seeking to attack inequality in our economics distributions, of which we rate the lowest in the civilized developing nations. GINI coefficient {0= equality: 1 = Inequality} is at .47. Africa and Latino South America are .5 ot higher. 1980 we were at .4 thus inequality has been severely increasing. Sweden is .3 or below and Netherlands is .31. Presently we are at the levels of nations such as Turkey and Iran.
Addressing the issues of inequality will suppress the dysfunctions that produce family disintegration and gangs as well as poverty.
That is why I have been hitting on inequality. Giving small examples from sources such as “The Price Of Inequality” by Joseph E. Stiglitz, Nobel prize winner in economics. Want some more; . One is Michael Mandelbaum. Economic advisors to various presidents here in the USA and a few other outlying sovereignties. Has several books on the subject of Liberal International Free Trade Markets. One to get you started ,“The Ideas That Conquered The World”.
Another Bulls Bears and the Ballot Box by Bob Deitrick and Lew Goldfarb. Statistics on the past 80 years of each and every president.
Now put down your foxy tabloids and comic books and read something that actually has substance and facts.
Of course that would be against ideologies of the right wing. They prefer an ignorant herd. Much easier to manipulate them to cut their own throats and save them the problem of doing their own butchering. LOL Now how is that for my opinion.

For a complete list of campaign promises look here little inbred imbecile.
promises kept 45%
compromised on 25%
broken 22%

Now lets look at the republican congressional promises
promises kept 38%
compromised 30%
broken 32%

looks like the President, also known as the COMMANDER AND CHIEF kept more promises and broke less that your pathetic excuse for a congress.

He kept 45% Broke 22% 25% compromised, that leaves 8% unaccounted for. Pathetic excuse for a Congress and a President. Don't promise things you can't deliver, a broken promise is a lie. That makes the POTUS and Congress LIARS. It makes no difference which tells the most lies, BOTH ARE LIARS! PRESIDENT COMMANDER IN CHIEF LIAR all rolled into one. After all by you own count he lies 22% of the time.

From your comment one can see you are not in compliance with the Marine Code of ethics.“Leave No One Behind”. Another institution you seek to slander. Never made it to Nam did ya.
Law abiding citizens? DUH who made those laws? Same ones you oppose to regulating too big to fail banks. Oh yeah we know you well. Anti everything, Anarchist. Spewing words you have no knowledge of. Deregulate is the hue and cry of your clan. Criminals and corruptive officials love you.
