I cleaned house - again - with the uninformed Right Wingers.

Right Wingers always believe what is convenient, not what is accurate, Obama is a Muslim Kenyan hiding those weapons of mass destruction somewhere in Iraq; a war that paid for itself; and Bush left us with a great economy, no deficit, and he reduced the national debt.

Right Wingers love their fantasies.

Right Wing Wacko World is all yours and you can have any beliefs you like.

The rest of us here on Planet Earth will chose reality, thanks.

Why, you can even chose to believe I didn't just make mincemeat out of your pathetic attempt to avoid acknowledging having your ass handed to you.

It's fine with me.

Yea, I just saw a prospectus from a South American multi-national corporation that is buying over a hundred buildings owned by a midwestern state. It's rated the equivalent of AAA.
With the depreciation schedule and tax benefits it appears the annual return on investment (ROI), will be over 9%. Because its a hedge fund offering the maximum tax rate is 15%. The ROI is based on a 20 year leaseback to the state itself - now that's secure.
Minimum "buy in" is $5.0 Million.
Ain't it a great and fair tax system, we all have access to 9% returns on our investments and a 15% tax rate.
Anyone working for a living and receiving a paycheck paying a 34% tax rate - just buy into this investment. Surely everyone has at least $5.0 Million in extra cash sitting around the house so stop whining.
Yep, rich people pay 15% or less in taxes cause they are smarter and better than those idiots who work for living.
It's obviously a fair tax system for the working man.
Damn, I am one of those idiots, I left my $5.0 Million in my other pants.
Here's the thing. How do you know those investers were ALWAYS financially secure enough to invest? Perhaps some of those investers grew up in the hood and worked and ACHIEVED that status. Why is it that you who aren't financially able to do that are so BITTER toward thoses who are? It makes no sense. If you had that VERY SAME OPPORTUNITY, you would DO THE VERY SAME THING. You haven't reached that status, SO you want everyone who has...TO PAY, PAY, PAY. I don't have that status and I DON'T CARE what they do. They made great decisions and are reaping that benefit. I simply DON'T CARE. Kind of like how you all give passes to Obama and what he DOES. YOU don't care. Well, there is ONE difference. You think everything that Obama does is for YOU. What a laugh! I don't think the money the big dogs make is necessarily "right", but I also don't think it's right to forcefullly take it from them.

Now that we've proven Democratic fiscal policy works on a large scale we can move on to other things.

Let's look at Republican Fiscal Policy. What? you say. That's right. Paul Ryans budget was rejected last month by the Senate. For people with attention spans, we could go deep into the implications of his budget, but let's just say this: America has rejected that bit of idiocy.

And specifically, the Senate voted on a "No Vouchers for Medicare" amendment specifically banning that bit of insanity. It passed the Senate with a 96-3 vote. Even Republicans can't deal with their own policy.

So now that we have firmly established that Democratic policies work, that even Republicans can't choke down their own policies that they promoted during the election - what else is there to talk about?

Oh - ObamaCare. Republicans tried to repeal it late last month. That failed again. For the THIRTY-NINTH TIME.

Those poor souls. They just can't get a grip around the idea that America wants the Patient Protection and the Affordable Care Act. They're going to have to go back to their corporate lobbyists and tell them they failed.

George W. Bushs legacy grows more impressive

The retention of 98 percent of the Bush tax cuts by the most liberal president to hold office reminds us that a mere four years after leaving office, George W. Bush has a legacy that is becoming more impressive with time. Kevin Hasset of the American Enterprise Institute puts it this way:After everything settles, people of both parties will have to agree that this was a big win for Bush. Almost all of Bushs favored tax policies have become a permanent part of the tax code. The top rate is higher, but marginal tax rates on rich people with incomes below $400,000 are even lower than they would have been if Bushs tax cuts had never passed. He emphasizes:It is especially important that dividends will probably never again be taxed as ordinary income. Even Republicans in the House were against Bushs dividend tax proposal to begin with. Now, even Democrats agree that dividends should be taxed less. So much for Warren Buffetts secretary.

Yea, what a surprise, Right Wing Obama caves in to the Extreme Right Wing Wacko that ran Bush.

Imagine, a Tweedle Dee "caves in" and adopts the same policies that Tweedle Dum" adored.

We are all shocked, shocked.

Of course the answer can't be that Obama is obviously about as liberal as John Ashcroft.

Oh no - that makes sense and denies the Wackos a Leeeeberal Boogeyman.

Equal Opportunity, Our National Myth
By JOSEPH E. STIGLITZ

"The gap between aspiration and reality could hardly be wider. Today, the United States has less equality of opportunity than almost any other advanced industrial country.

Study after study has exposed the myth that America is a land of opportunity.

It’s not that social mobility is impossible, but that the upwardly mobile American is becoming a statistical oddity.

According to research from the Brookings Institution, only 58 percent of Americans born into the bottom fifth of income earners move out of that category, and just 6 percent born into the bottom fifth move into the top. Economic mobility in the United States is lower than in most of Europe and lower than in all of Scandinavia.

But then we changed, in several ways. While racial segregation decreased, economic segregation increased. After 1980, the poor grew poorer, the middle stagnated, and the top did better and better.
Disparities widened between those living in poor localities and those living in rich suburbs — or rich enough to send their kids to private schools.

A result was a widening gap in educational performance — the achievement gap between rich and poor kids born in 2001 was 30 to 40 percent larger than it was for those born 25 years earlier, the Stanford sociologist Sean F. Reardon found."

Joseph E. Stiglitz, a Nobel laureate in economics, a professor at Columbia and a former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers and chief economist for the World Bank, is the author of “The Price of Inequality.”

For once you are somehow at correct, the only error is that it was Bush's Bailout Plan that Obama adopted, they are both puppets for the billionaire banksters.

AP News:

WASHINGTON — Struggling to stave off financial catastrophe, the Bush administration on Friday laid out a radical bailout plan with a jawdropping price tag _ a takeover of a half-trillion dollars or more in worthless mortgages and other bad debt held by tottering institutions.

A grim-faced President Bush acknowledged risks to taxpayers in what would be the most sweeping government intervention to rescue failing financial institutions since the Great Depression.

Congressional officials said they expected a request for legal authority to buy up the bad loans, at a cost in excess of $500 billion to the government.

Democrats were discussing whether to try to attach middle class assistance to the legislation, despite a request from Bush to avoid adding controversial items that could delay action.

The federal government already has pledged more than $600 billion in the past year to bail out, or help bail out, some of the biggest names in American finance. That includes the rescue of investment bank Bear Stearns in March, the takeover of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac earlier this month and the takeover of the world's largest insurance company, American International Group, just this week.
