Jesus is part of the 1% and I am sure he is willing to share.
You tea baggers are deluded.
You all should be exiled.

"de+lud+ed" = to be lead into false belief
Doesn't this accurately describe every single person that voted for the current President of the United States? Just asking.

Stop being jealous of me and my girlfriend. Just because I can get and keep one much younger then I am, it is not for everyone.
#45 Jan 23, 2014
Believe me,no one is jealous of you.
#46 Jan 23, 2014
No one has ever been more deluded than the useful idiots who voted for me--twice!
Can you say WMD's in Iraq?
#47 Jan 23, 2014
Would you ever believe that it was more than Pres Bush who was convinced that there were WMDs? Aren't you forgetting that our top intelligence source on the inside admitted to lying to the Bush administration? Didn't GEN Powell also say there were WMDs, oh and by the way, isn't he now on your side? Just asking. Isn't it even remotely possible that there were WMDs and they were sent someplace else? I really don't know the answer, but I do know that Iraq had used them in the past, mysteriously none were left. Syria maybe? I don't know.

So they have used nuclear weapons before?
The Bible says Earth is only a few thousand years old and that donkeys talk.
#49 Jan 23, 2014
Only the uninformed would think that the acronym "WMD" is used solely to describe nuclear weapons.
Not sure about talking donkeys, but I am becoming more aware that d*mba**es can type. Sort of.

That's true. That's why the phrase "could come in the form of a mushroom cloud" was used to emphasize how important it was to invade Iraq. Well,it wasn't really important. I just wanted to best my Daddy.
Saddam is gone. We've created a failed state in Iraq. Raised fuel prices for my friends in the house of Saud,the speculators have made billions,defense contractors have looted the treasury and I got a golden parachute thanks to the taxpayers. I never got Bin Laden and didn't really want to. Oh well. The rich are paying the lowest share of taxes in history. Even less so than the golden gilded age.
Life is good.

The wealthy and connected wish to stack the deck. They have contempt for the average American.
Here's a local story of crony capitalism in action to further the interests of the connected at the expense of the public.

Brother,you're not alone. I just wanted you to know I applaud and support your choice of choosing a much younger partner. You have my unwavering support. Guys like us gotta stick together.
#53 Jan 23, 2014
Do you ever tire of being on your knees and providing fellatio to the wealthiest and most connected?
Your gums must be totally numb by now and your knees badly bruised.
#54 Jan 24, 2014
If you used lub and condoms, you would not stick together and could go about your business when you finish.

The obscene lifestyles of the new global super-rich
Private jets and lavish penthouses are just the tip of the iceberg
by Lynn Stuart Parramore , Alternet
A new crop of global super-rich is pouring into the United States, changing the economic landscape from Manhattan to Los Angeles.
First they want the hotel room — perhaps the storied,$15,000-a-night penthouse at the Fairmont San Francisco, where guests receive honey made by the Fairmont’s own honeybees. JFK was rumored to tryst there with Marilyn Monroe. Next they want the shopping spree, snapping up million-dollar diamond Chanel watches and $1,000-per-ounce perfume. Then they want to buy a home in their favorite playground —maybe a $90 million pad at Manhattan’s behemoth One57 , where they can pay negligible taxes yet enjoy the full menu of New York City services.
For the new ultrawealthy, ordinary toys will not do.
To help us understand this new breed of 1 percenter, CNBC helpfully launched a brand new series on Jan 22 “ Secret Lives of the Super Rich .” Starting off with a sycophantic chant of “money, money, power, power” over cheesy opening credits, the show is a full hour of nonstop douchiness (two episodes aired Wednesday back-to-back), featuring eager commentary from CNBC’s “wealth editor” Robert Frank (yes, such a job title exists).
For most Americans, half of whom live at or near the poverty line , this is something like a safari through a foreign country that strangely exists in your own backyard. You’ll probably never attend the Breeder’s Cup, the “richest two days in sports,” but you can gawk at the adventures of Justin Zayat, a 21-year-old NYU student and son of racing tycoon Ahmed Zayat who manages million-dollar horses from his college dorm room. You may never own a home with a poolhouse bigger than a McMansion, but you can follow a pair of Russian oligarchs, Irina and Joseph, as they tour a $15 million Gatsby-era estate on Long Island where they can, among other things, ascend a spiral staircase looking up the butt of a three-story stuffed giraffe.
Most of us poor souls walk around just trying to survive, but perhaps the super-rich, who have all their basic needs met and then some, end up with an amplified anxiety about death that fills in the psychological real estate usually devoted to wondering how to pay for your kids’ college. Hence they load up their apartments with stuffed alligators.
The global elites seem to spend a great deal of time wondering how to survive an apocalypse — you might call them Billionaire Doomsday Preppers . They want high-security buildings where their identities are protected, complete with panic rooms and stockpiles of food and water in case of emergency. In case there’s a Third World meltdown, they want a First World stronghold. If death comes, at least they have maid service.
Attending to the psychological quirks of the rich and powerful who don’t want to accept death has a venerable tradition that goes back to the pharaohs, who liked to hit the afterlife in a solid gold mask with an army of embalmed servants. More recently, the field of cryongenics has arisen to stoke dreams of immortality among the wealthy (whole body freezing is the most expensive, but at a discount they can just freeze your head).
Maybe the new bumper crop of billionaires signals the need for a whole new industry: terror management consulting for the 1 percent. The expert could provide a full menu of death-denying services, from customized trips to Brazilian jungles where ayahuasca shamans can help them conquer their fear of dying to a full roster of apocalypse simulations conducted in the privacy of their own home.
If none of that works, at least the super-rich can look forward to a million-dollar funeral, such as the one a Chinese businessman just put on for his mom , complete with a 600-musician marching band and gold-plated cannons firing out the final salute. You can’t take it with you, but you can die trying....

Moe feels sorrow for these deaths and prays that the 1% will be overthrown.
At Least Five Homeless People Froze To Death Last Week
By Scott Keyes on January 24, 2014 at 8:23 am
She died where she lived: at the bus stop.
Willie Mae White loved to dance. She told stories about her boyfriends. She treated everyone with kindness. She was homeless.
On Tuesday, White froze to death at the Joliet, Illinois bus stop she called home. She was 55 years old.
“She doesn’t have to worry about being cold anymore,” an acquaintance, Audrey Laye, told the Herald-News.
Living on the streets is dangerous any time of year, but that’s especially true when temperatures dip below freezing. In this past week, as a cold front swept through the Midwest and Northeast, at least five homeless people have died from the cold.
Willie Mae White , 55, of Joliet, who died in sub-zero wind chills Tuesday morning.
Glenn Donovan , 53, of Highland Falls, New York. He was found in the woods near the Hudson River on Friday night.
A Philadelphia man in his 30s. His body was found in the freezing cold Thursday morning. Officials have not been able to determine his name yet.
A Jersey City man in his 40s.“Even the people who saw him on a daily basis said they did not know his name,” wrote The Jersey Journal. He slept in abandoned junk cars. His body was found Wednesday morning as the temperature hit 5 degrees.
A Chicago man who remains unidentified after dying from hypothermia on Tuesday.
As parts of the country have experienced deep cold snaps this winter, homeless lives have been at risk, and last week’s deaths came after several died from the cold earlier in the month.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Some states, including Colorado and Oregon , and cities including Phoenix and Salt Lake City , are making great strides in getting their homeless populations off the streets and into homes.
