Now back to what I have been saying all along.“IT’S THE ECONOMY STUPID”! Hammering your thick skulls with what occurs with the inequality of our laborers productivity and its wealth. As usual most agree with me as the Gallup polls are exposing as the number one culprit to our nations security. Action required to level the fields. Even the Independents agree. This is just too much and corrupt; http://neweconomy.net/content/wealth-inequali...

In U.S., 67% Dissatisfied With Income, Wealth Distribution
Democrats and independents are more dissatisfied than Republicans
by Rebecca Riffkin
WASHINGTON, D.C.-- Two out of three Americans are dissatisfied with the way income and wealth are currently distributed in the U.S. This includes three-fourths of Democrats and 54% of Republicans.
President Barack Obama spoke about income disparities in a Dec. 4, 2013, speech, saying he wanted to prioritize lowering income disparity and increasing opportunities, particularly for the poor, during the rest of his second term. He most likely will return to that topic in his State of the Union speech at the end of the month. Gallup's Jan. 5-8 Mood of the Nation survey included a question asking Americans how satisfied they are with income and wealth distribution in the U.S. Few, 7%, report that they are "very satisfied" with the distribution, while 39% of Americans say they are "very dissatisfied."
Attitudes about the distribution of income and wealth are highly related to partisanship. Republicans, at 45% very or somewhat satisfied, express the highest satisfaction with the current wealth disparity in the U.S. Democrats are much less satisfied, at 24%, with independents closer in satisfaction to Democrats, at 28%. Furthermore, almost half (43%) of Democrats and independents express strong dissatisfaction with the current state of wealth and income distribution.
Dissatisfaction With the Opportunity to Get Ahead Remains High
The same poll updated a long-time Gallup trend, finding that 54% of Americans are satisfied, and 45% dissatisfied, with the opportunity for an American "to get ahead by working hard." This measure has remained roughly constant over the past three years, but Americans are much less optimistic about economic opportunity now than before the recession and financial crisis of 2008 unfolded. Prior to that, at least two in three Americans were satisfied, including a high of 77% in 2002.
In contrast to the question about income distribution in the same poll, satisfaction with the opportunity to get ahead does not show a significant partisan split, with 61% of Republicans and 60% of Democrats saying they are satisfied. Among independents, 45% are satisfied and 53% are dissatisfied. Independents are the only group in which a majority are dissatisfied with opportunities to get ahead by working hard.
Bottom Line
Obama will almost certainly touch on inequality in his State of the Union address on Jan. 28. This will certainly resonate in a general sense with the majority of Americans who are dissatisfied with income and wealth distribution in the U.S. today. Members of the president's party agree most strongly with the president that this is an issue, but majorities of Republicans and independents are at least somewhat dissatisfied as well.
Although Americans are more likely to be satisfied with the opportunity for people to get ahead through hard work, their satisfaction is well below where it was before the economic downturn. Accordingly, improvement in the U.S. economy could bring Americans' views back to pre-recession levels.
I still don't read your posts because, frankly, they're too long-winded.

She dumped him just after he paid the last of the tuition and left her 2 children with him. Later he was able to get an order against her where she had restricted visitation with those kids.

Many on this thread have been bought with the Koch industries of propaganda. Small minds easy to manipulate. Don’t need no facts just herd them up and corral them for the next clipping of their wool. Old saying.” A sheep and its wool will soon be separated”. That’s what we have here with so called Texans. Fortunatly not all are as sheepish as those on this thread. Wendy raised 12.2 Million to her opponents 11 Million. OF course Koch and his buddies haven’t anti up yet… The sheep are restless…

That is a link that visualizes the financial inequality within our USA. Security of our nation demands we address this discrepancy of an abusive skewing of our laborers income and wealth distributions.
Obama has been making the effort. His Obamacare helps to disperse the wealth from a monopolized insurance industry out to stimulate competition. It will increase demand for skilled laborers that will gain a proper living wage as the ER’s empty their patience to the primary care doctors and the entourage of laborers that will be required to support that infrastructure.
Presently democrats are promoting a rise in minimum wage. That will help “BUT” regulations will be required to close corporatist loopholes. Example; Wal Mart does not allow a 40 hour week for their employees and couple that with present minimum wage employees are eligible for welfare programs. Thus the average cost to taxpayers for each Wal Mart store is $900,000 to subsidize the stores payroll via welfare. Wal Mart is not alone in using this tactic.
Volker’s Rule which was to restart the FDR,s Glass Steagall Act to regulating the banks is already being water downed.
Capping the lobbyist and the politicians is not even on the table !!
There is just so much a president can do especially with a divided congress with the highest dysfunctional rating in US history.
Dysfunctional politicians increases the properties of greater Financial Inequality. Elitist minority wins..
2014 time to vote the loser republicans out.

I will bet you the Republicans will not be voted out even if many of them need to be and the reason they will not be is because of stupid people like this one above. This is a perfect example of the disease this country suffers from. I swear I believe he is serious.

The liberal mind set is coming to an end. People are sick of the extremely high taxes (my taxes have doubled) and the personal liberties being removed . The republicans have also started changing to that mindset, but there party will abandon them over it..... So, i am expecting a third party to rise from this..... sadly, it will be the only party at that point. Which is bad for everyone.

Here in laporte, i am paying 60 cents on every dollar i earn. By the time i pay for obamacare, higher sales tax, higher taxes on everything..... It is a breaking point. I brought home more back in 1996 with my minimum wage job..... Heck, i brought home $300 a week...... That would be wonderful now.

It should be plain to us all. Perry is financially connected to the British company that the TACS test and the STAR test is purchased from. They are making billions by producing test anxiety in our elementary school children.
He has obviously bought in to one of the Colorado companies setting up retail pot sales.
