Impress?

I was late to the game by 3 years. All my fellow dock neighbors already had a jet ski, and most have 2 or more.

My rank in comparison to fellow dock mates is under 50%.

Due to my work ethic and ambition I earn above average income, but fall far behind those who I consider really successful.

I set my sights high as a goal for achievement.

Just because you lack ambition and are jealous is not my problem. Because you are a troll I love rubbing it in your face.

You do remember that the stock market crash happened before Obama took office, right?

above government link of your own home town demographics say differently.

PS: the great sell off prior to Obama taking office because of fear, had corporations go into preservation mode they currently still reside in. Without all the monopoly money by the fed being poured into the market it would still be in the dumper.

You need to brush up on reality, and lay off the kook aide.

That's a pretty good trick. The US was already in recession in 2007. Obama wouldn't even be nominated until late August of 2008.

Old guy does not pay attention either.

According to you 2, this is the best the economy has ever been in history, but figures don't lie, and liars figure spin wins.

maybe you need to look further, and not listen to NPR for news. Remember your news sites must be subsidized or they can't remain open.

why don't you pay attention, and not spin your adolescent opinions here as fact?.

The link you posted had national figures on it? You might want to take another look. You would think that you would be right about something once just by accident.

I'd like to keep talking about your original assertion "the average american family has lost $5000 of annual income under Obama."

As I demonstrated above, you were wrong on a simple factual matter --- one that was easy to check. Then, rather than respond directly, you try to deflect the argument to something unrelated. That diversion might work for you occasionally in real time conversation, but it doesn't play well here. Here we have a record of everything that is said. We can always go back and look at exactly what the other person said.

I think that you know that your original assertion is wrong. You seem smart enough to read a table, and understand it. And yet you are unwilling to admit it.

If your hope is to somehow deceive us with easily checked lies, obvious evasions, or juvenile insults, you are sadly mistaken. You only make yourself look bad.

This is the guy who went on for days about how his 40 plus lawyers had made him an overseas corporation who would never pay a penny of income tax again and then has spent the subsequent two years bragging about how much income tax he pays. There's a little more going on there than stubbornness.

We won the battle but not the war. There could be two more appeals processes involved before all is said and done. But it is going in the right direction. Another newspaper smack on the snoot of big ears and it is funny.

Why does it make you feel better to cling to your false premise that everyone who disagrees with you is on welfare?
I think its because if you accept the other possibility as true, that the people who refuse to do your job are people who are smarter, better educated, and have better jobs than you, it destroys your Rush Limbaugh fantasy life that you really could have been something if the darn Obama had never been elected.
No, disagreeing with me is just part of it.

I go to Topix quite a bit when the weather is crappy like when it rains or during the winter, and it seems that no liberals work. How can that be???? Are they all smarter and better educated?

It seems to me I'm one of the few people that have a job on Topix. Everybody else? Independently wealthy, has a business at home, retired..........

I can understand one or two perhaps, but all of them?

Next is the political stance those so-called successful people take. I mean, if a person worked themselves to a point where they no longer have to work, why would they side with a party that wants to take more of what they have and give it to those that don't want to achieve anything in life? It just doesn't make sense, or as Cantoon said frequently "Voting against your own interest."

So I ask myself, why would these successful people want more government in their lives? After all, if truly successful, government didn't make them that way, they made themselves that way, and that includes getting government out of the way if anything.

However, it would make sense if a person with such a political position needed government for something outside of what the Constitution grants citizens. After all, successful people don't need government for anything, government dependents need government for just about everything. It would make sense those people would be behind a larger government. The larger the government, the more government can give them.

I have successful people in my family. I have millionaires in my family. I know what aggression it took for them to be successful. Lots of hard work, money, taking huge risks and education. Most successful people look down on those who did nothing for themselves or even tried. They are not willing to open up their wallets and purse and say "Take what you need! You didn't feel like working, well I did, so here you go!!"

Most successful people feel government is a hindrance and not a help. Government isn't paving the way, government is getting in the way. Liberalism is rewarding the irresponsible while punishing the responsible. And I don't know of many irresponsible successful people.
