try this: YOUR favorite entity, BIG Govt bailed out YOUR favorite enemy, Big Business... and YOU voted for the ONLY candidate to vote for AND implement such action!
when you are 'going', do you meet yourself 'coming'... or, is THAT something you've learned to fake?:)
NTR, you post and articulate soo many different viewpoints, how is ANY one supposed to take YOU seriously?
the only thing you are consistent about is bashing those posters you can't or won't answer directly.
now, how many brain cells do u suppose all of the above took?lol
Not more than a few to reach the wrong conclusion - again.

How many times must I tell you that I agree we must cut spending, but I also believe we must have revenue increases that aren't simply passed along to the struggling middle-class at the STATE and LOCAL levels - which will automatically happen when Federal cuts result in shortfalls to vital services at the state level. Again, it's a matter of priorities and human costs. We can't keep paying corporate welfare to the degree and extent we do now without a huge cost to society if cuts come directly from education and social programs and exclude the wealthiest among us from the formula.

<quoted text>I fear that plutocratic rule, under which we are already operating will result in Oligarchy. I'm not worried about Socialism. I'll leave that to you to concern yourself about. I'm worried about the demise of the middle class and the dearth of opportunity to move from one class to another through one's own efforts. I worry about a society where your birth status defines you for life. Call that whatever you want to call it, but I don't see a place where your birth station defines you for life as being America, at least the one in which I grew up or expected would be there for my children and theirs.
To his credit, this President has articulated what nobody wanted to say about it and made preserving a middle class his mission this term. I have no doubt that this perspective is what cost him the financial support of so many corporate donors this time. Can he overcome the pressure and the influential power brokers that dominate our Congress and our legislation? I don't know. I wish him well.
his, Obama's, vision is to make ours a two class society: 1% Elite/Ruling Class and the 2nd as 'Other', period.

Obama has done as much as ANY Admin of the last 50+ yrs to promote the entitlement class and to TAME the Middle Class... by breaking it with UN-employment and ever-higher HIDDEN taxes (gas, tobacco, etc...).

if people like you could ever see past the trees of class/race/rel hatred jinned up by pols/ideologues like Obama, you would see the FOREST that is to BE what America, the America of OUR youth, is being transformed into.

you stick with THEIR program... some of us will take the 'road less travelled' but TRUE TO OUR ROOTS AND GREATNESS.

Q: which is worse: to die in a nursing home/under a bridge becuase one has NO insurance to cover ??? or to be deemed expendable and not worth the cost of such ???? the former is tough-titty-Life and the latter IS the Progressive/Big Brother Govt Ultimate Goal.

the former is chance and the latter is by design... the New World Order Design.... AND YOU VOTED FOR IT.

again, CONGRATULATIONS!

fortunately, I know MY enemy. UNfortunately, you either don't know or are in denial of your chosen ally.

Lately, Bush has been riding scores of miles on a secluded spread on Beltsville and on the rolling hills of Quantico, Virginia, far from the White House whirl.
"He's become a biking maniac," said Mark McKinnon, his media advisor and frequent cycling companion.
What originally began as a way for the president to stay fit, after three decades of running had wrecked his knees, has now become his passion. Besides the calories burnt at a 1,000-per-hour clip, cycling gives Bush an emotional rush that often surpasses that of the one he would get from running.

----------
Next week in Texas former President George W. Bush will host a 100 kilometer bike ride with 14 U.S. servicemen and women who were seriously wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Dubbed the “Warrior 100K,” the race will take place in Big Bend, TX from April 25-27.
“I’ll be riding across the deserts of Texas with wounded warriors to show the unbelievable character of our men and women in uniform,” President Bush said in a statement.“It’s a 100-kilometer ride in the desert, and it’s not a leisurely ride; it’s a ride to herald people who were dealt a severe blow and said,‘I’m not going to let it tear me down.’”
Bush is an avid mountain bike rider who put his Secret Service detail through some grueling workouts during his White House years and rode on his Texas ranch with cycling star Lance Armstrong. The former president took up mountain biking after running proved to be too tough on his knees.

He wasn't a cyclist when he was a sitting President.

<quoted text>What was your point? Your point seemed to be that Obama enjoys "lavish" vacations at taxpayer expense while his predecessor spent his vacations at "the ranch". Did I miss something? George LOVED the ranch.
I suppose you're going to feign surprise and claim no knowledge of the this administration's use of class warfare - its constant demonizing of the wealthy and how we all need to sacrifice and 'tighten our belts'.

Bush has nothing to do with this discussion as the frequency of the Obama's vacations is not the point. The blatant lavishness of them IS. Maybe you don't mind their 'Let them eat cake' hypocrisy, but millions of struggling Americans do.

**********

WageClassWar.org (WCW) was launched on November 15, 2012 as a project of the Campaign for America's Future (CAF). As articulated by CAF co-founder Robert Borosage, WCW's mission is to protect the interests of middle class people who are “besieged” by “America’s extreme inequality and rigged [economic] system” and are “looking for champions” to stand up for them.

Toward this end, WCW supports progressive Democratic political candidates and openly advises them to engage in “class war” in order “to win the who’s-side-are-you-on battle” in the eyes of the voting public. The surest way to achieve this goal, says WCW, is to constantly emphasize “the reality that the wealthy and special corporate interests [are] rigging the rules to benefit themselves, while the middle class [is] getting crushed.”

According to WCW, the Occupy Wall Street movement—through its ceaseless repetition of slogans about “the 99%,”“the 1%,”“inequality,” and the evils of “Wall Street”—“brought this reality to national attention and demonstrated widespread American sympathy for its analysis.”

I just thought it was incumbent on me to make sure you know how and why it is that all of your phoney baloney protests of how mean and evil I am don't add up at all where you're concerned. You deserved to be reminded of exactly what you are, liar.

I don't believe a word you say, so save the itinerary for somebody who does and who cares.

Yet Bush isn't the only participant at risk. For the Secret Service agents and others who have ridden with him, it can be a hazardous experience. At least one agent has broken several bones trailing the president.

It can also be demoralizing, they say. Bush is infamous for leaving stragglers behind. Yet those that ride with him say it is never boring.

While the president may be alone with his thoughts on his fast-paced rides, he's hardly by himself. An entourage of medics, sometimes including White House physician Richard Tubb, and Secret Service agents with firearms strapped under their biking shirts clatters along. Other agents can be spotted along the route, said people familiar with the rides. Often a helicopter also buzzes overhead, keeping the airspace clear and Bush in sight, even if he is gleefully leaving his riding companions in the dust.

well, bright-girl, when YOU vote the status quo... for ANY office... you endorse the very behaviour YOU claim to be against.

how many people tell us that we do not need term limits IF WE VOTE THE PEOPLE OUT THAT DON'T DO THE BEST FOR ALL (sometimes that means doing the NOT-best for all, too!).

Obama failed at least 47-50% of US... and YOU found that acceptable.

if Romney/whomever had done the same, vote his ARSE out in 4 yrs, too. duh!?! WHAT DON'T YOU GET?

I GET that you don't need to worry about Fed taxes ANYMORE and that LESS FG spending would mean more State spending and TAXES and thoae taxes would affect YOU... so, YOU voted for YOUR interests over the Nation's(whole). I get THAT.... that you are me, me, ME.

we have too much such myopia. whether it is Exxon or NTR or lil' miss welfare queen or mr deadbeat babby daddy or plain ol' Joe Taxpayer.... we have TOO much 'Ask what My Country can do for ME...'.

when we MOST need a JFK we get a BHO!

thanks, again....

7. Arne Sorenson, Marriott International

In 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice prosecuted Marriott International for using an illegal tax shelter swindle dubbed “ Son of Boss .” The scam involved setting up a series of complex paper transactions between company subsidiaries to create $70 million in fake losses that could be offset against Marriott’s real profits. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a long-time friend of the Marriott family and named after Marriott’s patriarch J. Willard Marriott, was the head of the hotel giant’s audit committee in 1994 at the time the board first approved the Son of Boss transaction. According to Bloomberg, Marriott has also shifted profits to a Luxembourg shell company and avoided hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes through one federal tax credit for so-called synthetic fuel that Senator John McCain dubbed an “expensive hoax.”

To prove the efficacy of its proposed “class war” strategy, WCW in November 2012 identified several Democratic politicians who had expertly used it to their own great advantage in that year's elections.

For instance, WCW claimed that President Barack Obama, who had a sub-40% approval rating in mid-2011, was able to win re-election just 16 months later because of his “decision to engage in class warfare, to directly engage the class war being waged by the 1 percent against the rest of the country.”

In certain key battleground states like Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, said WCW, Obama “took on the class warrior role” with particular aggressiveness by:

“constantly reinforc[ing] the contrasts” between himself and Republican challenger Mitt Romney “regarding the middle class”;

“indict[ing] the 'you’re on your own' economics of Republicans”;emphasizing his desire to “eliminat[e] the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy”;

and “painting a believable picture of ... Romney as the plutocrat who ... can’t empathize with your struggles.”

Further, noted WCW, Obama had gained “a clear advantage” as a result of Occupy Wall Street's “reframing of the nation’s most important economic issue.”
