??? Are you insane???? There hasn't been opportunity for a long long time. It takes money to make money and if you don't have any, you can't get any. Business owners???? Yes, owners of Walmart for example. They own more than 60% of all Americans.

I always wonder why the GOP takes such pride in this figure. Clearly if you have a job, and don't make enough to buy food, shelter, health care and pay taxes, you don't really have a job. That means bush pushed the unemployment rate to 47%. Why are you so proud of that?

Maybe avg for North Bumfook, MN, but in any northeast metro that's starting, right out of college. Get a masters and 10 years experience, now you're at 100K. Why do you think RE taxes are five figures? It's to pay for the schools, and the biggest cost is teacher salaries/benes.

I agree that you don't understand the numbers. 47% refers to TAX RETURNS, not # of adults.
