I think a new Topix site should be created where in order to post a comment you would have to pass an IQ test. I am not here to point fingers or offend by calling names, but it is quite frustrating to be unable to carry on a conversation with more intellectual content than a bucket of slop. As soon as one starts, or a reply is offered with genuine insight or truth, that person is attacked with unrelenting stupidity. The inability to think critically plagues our nation to the point that citizens have been brainwashed into believing that if you are not well-off, it is because you are a fat, lazy, free-loader that sits around and has babies all day. The fact of the matter is, this irrational bit of non-sense was started by the insanely rich banker elites, that are actually causing our once great society to crumble, and driven into the empty minds of those unable to think for themselves. The truth is, 100 years ago, ONE low wage income was enough to support a family of seven without need for government assistance. Now, thanks to the greedy elite and the creation of the Federal Reserve, the U.S. dollar has lost so much value that in order to survive, families are forced to take on several jobs and most likely still accept some government aid. Of course, the well off have no one to worry about other than their own selfish desires so it makes it easy to point a finger at those struggling to keep their heads above water and blame them for their misfortune, that is actually caused by the greed that glues this country together. I guess what I am trying to say is, just because you have more money than me does not make you a better person. I will NEVER be rich. You know why? Its not because I am a lazy free-loader. Its because no matter ho much money I make, I will never be able to enjoy it knowing that there are starving people who desperately need help. I would much rather extend them a hand up than scoff, turn my nose in the air and blame them for MY greed. Just saying, maybe you should think before you open your mouth and defile the rest of us with your toxic stupidity. That is all.

Yes. I set of revolving questions that would have to be answered correctly before a post could be made. Great idea.

I normally wouldn't feel obligated to defend my position from someone who refers to themself in the third person, but since you think I am blinded by my anger I will take time to explain my position a little better. First of all, The U.S. is by far the richest most powerful country in the world. We are also the ONLY western power that does not offer it's citizens healthcare. Why? Is this because it will cripple the rich and bring and end to our economy as you seem to think? No I dont think so. It is because healthcare is the number 1 industry in America. The number one MONEY maker. If it was free, then the rich would have to find another place to gouge and blood-suck. Our system is designed to keep you sick. You see the more you have to see a doctor, the more you benefit those in power, esp. the drug companies. I do NOT agree with what Obama is doing by forcing those who cannot afford it to pay for healthcare. If the tiny island nation of Cuba can afford top notch healthcare to its citizens at no cost why can't America? It can. And as for our budget, The amount of money spent on the military has grown astronomically since BUSH jr. took office. Now over 60% of our budget is spent making enemies across the globe instead of taking care of our citizens. Not to mention the money spent spying on Americans. If everyone was taxed according to what they made, everyone paying an equal percentage, and big business was no longer allowed to take jobs overseas to avoid paying taxes to the US government, we would not have a problem with our budget. Instead, since those who control the govt. are the rich elite, the insanely rich pay little or no taxes, big business get tax break after tax break, and medication that could easily be free to those who need it to survive cost hundreds of dollars per month. That is entirely unnecessary. The medication costs pennies to manufacture in most cases and drug companies charge hundreds. If you cant afford it, well then you are poor and dont deserve to live anyway.

I don't hate the rich. I just have very little tolerance for brainwashed people that attack other's ideas when they actually stand up for what is right.

The problem with this country is not Obama.I do not agree with a lot of his policies, but he is not responsible for the decay of our civilization. That began one hundred years ago with the creation of the Federal reserve and the world bank. Many do not know this but the federal reserve is NOT a government organization. It is a group of powerful elite bankers. These bankers charge interest on EVERY dollar that our government prints. EVERY dollar in circulation was borrowed into circulation, and thus must be paid back with interest. It doesn't take a genius to realize it is impossible to pay the debt when there will ALWAYS be more debt than money.

Slavery

1.
the condition of a slave; bondage.

2.
the keeping of slaves as a practice or institution.

3.
a state of subjection like that of a slave: He was kept in slavery by drugs.

4.
severe toil; drudgery.

1. thralldom, enthrallment. Slavery, bondage, servitude refer to involuntary subjection to another or others. Slavery emphasizes the idea of complete ownership and control by a master: to be sold into slavery. Bondage indicates a state of subjugation or captivity often involving burdensome and degrading labor: in bondage to a cruel master. Servitude is compulsory service, often such as is required by a legal penalty: penal servitude. 4. moil, labor.

If you knew anything about the economic system, who you work for, why, and your "false pay", this is EXACTLY what you have. Only difference is that it social slavery, accepted widely among America, because we can't see we are being deceived. We feel benefited by the system for the moment part, yet it benefits big business/banks FAR MORE. And we are used as puppets to take things from places that are not ours to take also, further supporting our system, crushing everyone else, and FURTHER and more greatly supporting big business/banks/government(beca use that is who that are now, rest are figure heads). Your leaders are the same for the most part on the way their actions will effect big business while in office. You are serving under a cruel, unwanted power. You only have two choices, with the SAVE views toward what banks etc want at that time. That is NOT a choice. All your prochoice, prolife, republican vs hippy, I support minority , eat healty america are just side concerns to these people, good for show to the public. They don't care who win on those issues, they care who helps support their pocket, and for the most part BOTH PARTIES have been pre-selected to.

Say a slave owner years ago, wanted food...a wild pig ( now days oil). He would have his slave go hunt it. Say that pig was on another's property ...he would have that slave take it. That property owner would have less to hunt on his land. The slave owner, no real work, and a pig, and to ensure he would get that slave to do it again next time, the slave would get enough to live to work again.

Now in order to get that slave to work for him, and make him continue working he would beat the slave, and keep the slave locked up and owned, and give that slave just enough to be useful and live. This however caused a rebellion. Because slavery is wrong, and people were mad they were mistreated. If that slave worked for that pig, it should of been his pig. And if that pig was on another's land, he should of had the rights to it first, his land should provide him and his people. The only one who really got anything was the owner. The neighbor would be mad, at the owner but the only way to stop it was to stop and fight back on the slave. The slave was worked to death for nothing more then to support the non deserving owner.

Since they figured out it is a good idea to keep your slaves alive to work for you, they have been giving you just enough to eat. They also learned that if we felt mistreated, we'd fight back, so they created a middle class so we have something to reach for and keep us believing we can have what they have. We were giving jobs to preform for their pockets, while we get the change....you are still getting to work your life away for other people...they just give you a few more shiny toy and have you compare them to each other. You are enslaved...just distracted away from it with false promises and misguided truths and comparisons. They are not only enslaving us but they are now using us to enslave others for them, and to take their stuff. They just don't beat you now....they learned from past slavery, and improve upon it. You won't fight
back against something you don't know is happening.

Because of this inflation, the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar has waned drastically in the last one hundred years. Our money has devalued to the point its barely worth the paper its printed on. That is why a family must work two or three jobs to stay afloat. Accepting government assistance is becoming a necessity for many because of this. Since the US dollar is the WORLD standard currency, our inflation is crippling economies all over the globe. If China wants to buy steel from Russia, it must first buy US dollars and then purchase the steel. Since our dollars buy less and less, they, just like us, must work twice as hard to buy what was half as much a few years ago. This is the real reason why the world economy is collapsing. The greed of a handful of elite bankers who have control of our government.

"Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States."
-Sen. Barry Goldwater

It is well that the people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."
-Henry Ford

The people of Cuba are trying to escape drug lords not the free health care. pull your head outta your ass for a minute grave digger. Osama Bin Laden was trained and funded 100% by the CIA. This is not a conspiracy theory, its fact. Look it up, do a little research instead of just talking. Maybe me spreading truth is my way of helping to come up with solutions. It certainly is more productive than you opening your mouth and spreading ignorance.

You argue against your own point grave digger. Do you ever read your own post? The greedy rich are causing many problems, no doubt. But you are arguing their side. Do you not understand that right-winged conservatives ARE the rich? Yet you say its the leftist socialist that are running our country into the ground with greed?! DO you not understand that socialists want to SHARE the wealth and conservatives want to greedily keep everything for themselves? I am NOT left winged, nor am I conservative. Neither side is capable of pulling their head out of their ass. I am a populist. And I wish you were right about our government being controlled by the people. But if you truly believe that, then I am truly sorry for you. The government isn't even in control anymore. Corporations are in control of every aspect of our government. Its called lobbyists. Just so you know, people tried to do something about it during the wallstreet protests, but the government forced them to stop protesting, violating the constitutional rights to protest our government.

by the way, America is the greediest country in the world by far. The creator of capitalism, Adam Smith, said that capitalism wouldn't work without greed, and that the more greed that exists, the more prosperous the nation would be. Guess what, AMERICA is greedy!

On another note, since you bought into all the BS being perpetuated by the rich elites and believe that our country I being ran into the ground by the socialist democrats, I just thought I would inform you that the ONLY time in U.S. history that we had a budget surplus was when Clinton was in office,(a democrat), and since Bush Jr, our debt as climbed to 17 trillion dollars. But yeah, its the socialists fault right? Not the greedy rich elite? By the way these are facts that anyone with half a brain can validate.
