Clueless one.....
As of 2010, the top 1% of households owned 35.4% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19%(the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 53.5%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 89% YET they are only paying 71.8% of the tax burden. THEY ARE NOT PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE!

What industry will the government ambush and take over?
Best bet would be the food industry, especially when you consider the government will begin eliminating all foods they deem unhealthy.
collective farms and government supermarkets would assure healthier foods for all Americans, as well as "food equality" and lower prices....

time to eliminate the profit motive in food...

As Warren Buffett said it best...stop coddling the rich:
"While the poor and middle class fight for us in Afghanistan, and while most Americans struggle to make ends meet, we mega-rich continue to get our extraordinary tax breaks. Some of us are investment managers who earn billions from our daily labors but are allowed to classify our income as “carried interest,” thereby getting a bargain 15 percent tax rate. Others own stock index futures for 10 minutes and have 60 percent of their gain taxed at 15 percent, as if they’d been long-term investors.
These and other blessings are showered upon us by legislators in Washington who feel compelled to protect us, much as if we were spotted owls or some other endangered species. It’s nice to have friends in high places."
It's insanity.
Warren Buffett is all talk and no action on a personal level....

meanwhile he reaps huge profits from his railroad by blocking the Keystone Pipeline....

(If this posts twice, it's worth repeating anyway.)

In the ideology of secular humanism, which the most prominent Western form of secularism advances, moral values are highly subject to change, being based upon the presumed superior reasoning of man, who is set forth as the supreme lawgiver. Being basically atheistic, it operates out of a materialistic foundation, and lacking an objective, transcendent moral authority and its moral absolutes, it offers no assurance of moral stability, and is prone to extremes of moral relativism.
~A summation of "Darwin on Trial", p. 126, by Philip Johnson

It is also the basic summation of the moral decline in this country and the cause of the political maneuvering that has divided us.

We no longer share a basic mutual moral standard with mere political policy differences dividing us. It's a total lack thereof along party lines. Progressive secularism is now the guiding force behind the Democratic Party's policies - "basically atheistic", "materialistic foundation", "lacking an objective", "offering no assurance of moral stability", "prone to extremes of moral relativism".

So we've taken sides - on one side or the other - to either preserve traditional values and a once shared basic moral standard or replacing it with progressive secularism and assuming our "superior reasoning" makes us the "supreme lawgivers".

This is where we are and precisely why we are here. Many Democrats, i.e. progressive secularist liberals, think of themselves as "superior". Just like the Roman Emperors did before the fall of the Roman Empire.

How about we start with the Presidents jobs bill???? The Republicans have voted 47 times to kill the Presidents AHC bill and not once for the jobs. I'm just asking for a little common sense here.
How about we do start with this president's idea of a "jobs bill".

The AJA’s only certain effect is to make everything worse than it already is by asking Congress to tighten the stranglehold that government regulation has already placed on the economy.

What is so striking about Obama’s shopworn rhetoric is its juvenile intellectual quality.

(I particularly liked that description of Obama's rhetoric.)

As in so many other cases, the president thinks that waving a wand over a problem will make his most ardent wishes come true, even when similar earlier efforts have proved to be dismal failures.

http://www.hoover.org/publications/defining-i...

In other words, it's just another of Obama's mishmash of taxes, subsidies, and regulations. Because he doesn't know what he's doing - or how to do it..

Republicans are standing between his incompetency and us. You should be thanking them.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. It could be true that the only ones who won't recognize this president has perpetually lied to push his personal agenda since 2008 are, like you said, woefully ignorant or perpetually intoxicated - or both - but, more likely, they've been poisoned by the progressive liberal ideology.
Or all of the above.
It could be just a severe case of mass lack of judgment of character and common sense. It's either that or the masses lack character and have no common sense.
Still trying to figure that one out.
Possible and likely causes:

1.) Public schools

2.) Popular culture

Both of these contribute heavily toward Group-Think.
