Cain said his economict was Rich Lowery from Ohio, and he said it was Rich Lowery from Texas. It's in the debate. Turns out Rich Lowery is NOT an economist. He works for Wells Fargo bank. They got the idea for 999 from an online casino game. The corporate tax is a value added tax on good that we would pay. The nine percent sales tax we pay, and that is on top of the 9.5 percent state sales tax I already pay. The tiny cuts to payroll taxes eliminates social security and Medicare. Then, Cain comes up with the Chilean model for SS, taxes workers 20 percent to save for their retirements, but, without Medicare, their entire retirement money would go to buy old age medical insurance. Wow. Like Grover Norquest said - it's like having three needles in your arm all taking blood out of you at the same time.

Cain figures if he gives the rich man tons of tax cuts, they will give him money. He kills off the working poor and middle class to become a billionaire himself. Wow. It's Palin all over again. Get rich quick, lie and lie, know nothing.

Dear Americans,

This is only my opinion.
However, I have a question.
If I am wrong, I will willingly change my opinion.
Please teach me, Sirs.

[1]
Our America must sell something to foreign-countries to live and eat.
Of course, I strongly believe that the U.S. needs heavy-industry.
In the future, we America will export cars.
However, under present circumstances, in short-term, we America must sell stocks.

In order to sell stocks, we will raise the prices of stocks.
And, in order to raise stock-prices, American-companies have had to slim themselves.
So, American-people were fired.

Therefore, the cause of the gap between the rich and the poor in the U.S.
must be China, Germany, Japan, South-Korea, Canada, etc.

I think that those people may be opposed to NAFTA.
Canada has been squeezing the U.S. and making money via NAFTA.

Do those people are opposed to NAFTA?

Please unite Americans!
America's enemies come from outside the U.S.!
Yes, of course, the U.S. will be better than now, than Japan, and than Germany.
And, so, yes, of course, we America may need some (legal and democratic) actions.

However, I cannot understand well yet.

In my opinion, Americans' enemies are foreign-countries.
I love the U.S.A.! I love American-people.
I will be an American-citizen.

[2]
I am afraid that Demonstration in front of Wall Street would lower Dow.

It is wrong that raising Dow by firing American-people.
(I donot care raising Dow by firing German or Chinese or Japs.)
However, low Dow cannot hire people.

We are living in capitalism-world.
There are capitalists and workers in capitalism-world.

Capitalists means stockholders.
Capitalists, that is stockholders, hold companies.
Capitalists, that is stockholders, donot hire workers, if the stock-prices donot rise.
Capitalists, that is stockholders, hire workers as long as the stock-prices rise.

So, if we want to lower jobless-rate, we must raise stock-prices and Dow.

Then, how to support raising Dow and lowering jobless-rate at the same time?

Corporate-downsizing can raise its stock-price.
However, this action also raise jobless-rate.

We America must develop overseas markets, increase exportation, and gain market-shares.
Therefore, we America must lower dollar-value, must do exportation, and must begin trade-wars.

Wall-Street, General-Motors, Rockefeller, and NY City Coalition against Hunger,
every one can agree to this idea.

[3]
Even in Wall-Street, there are many small and medium-sized securities-companies.
In those companies, many fathers work supporting their families and mortgages.
If Dow lowers, those fathers will be fired first.
Those who work in Wall-Street are not only extreme-rich-people, but also cleaners, cooks etc.

Please unite Americans!
The U.S. must have huge-trade-surplus and huge-current-account-surplus!
The U.S. and American-companies must monopolize all the markets all over the world!

Dear Americans,

I am deeply sorry to trouble you many times.
I cannot write in short and simple, because my English-skill and composition-skill are quite low.
Please forgive me Sirs.

[1]
The U.S. now has huge-trade-deficit and huge-current-account-deficit!
China has huge-trade-surplus and huge-current-account-surplus!
Taiwan huge-trade-surplus and huge-current-account-surplus!
Japan huge-trade-surplus and huge-current-account-surplus!
Germany huge-trade-surplus and huge-current-account-surplus!

There is a great difference between our America and other-countries.

Please unite Americans!

Companies will construct factories by using money.
The money is collected by selling their stocks.
And, then the companies can hire American-people.

[2]
Roughly speaking,
we Americans live on more than $100 a day.
(This figure includes all the cost such as rent, etc.)

On the other hand,
half of the human-races in developing countries live on $2 a day.
(I have NO intention to say that someone should support developing-countries.)

If we spread communism all over the world,
then, Americans' standard of living will become half of the present Americans' standard of living.

So, I am against the idea of communism.
I love rich living and want to be a rich.
We America must squeeze all over the world, and we must make all American-people richer.
We are living in capitalism-world.

Very sincerely yours,

We are working on it. We have this rich man here in the U.S. named Donald Trump. He has billions of dollars in real estate here and he saw the U.S. was going under from it's trade imbalance, especially with China. So he made our politicians put a tariff on Chinese imports. Our Congress passed the bill about a month ago. Now Mr. Trump has gotten Linsey Graham to submit a bill to force China to bring its currency up to its real value, same as we did with Japan many years ago. So Mr. Trump has started a U.S. trade war with China. He may run for president and he wants to re-negotiate our free trade agreements. He is working to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Our politicians let our jobs to go China and India. They are corrrupt and only for the rich and the corporations, so one of our businessmen had to come in and run for president and force our politicians to start a trade war with China. We have a few businessmen here who cannot move their businesses offshore because their businesses are real property, skyscrapers and casinos in the U.S. So they stepped up to the plate to handle the problems because our politicians are too corrupt to help us.

Can you imagine how insane Cain actually is?? OMG. He took 999 from SimCity computer game and thought no one would ever find out. He lies Rich Lowery is an economist and doesn't think people can go and find out of the guy is an economist?? He just makes up anything and doesn't even think about it that the press is going to go and question the guy, the press will find out the made up economist works at Wells Fargo Bank. It takes a crazy person to make up lies while running for president, and to just stand there and think no one will check on anything, you can just say anything and no one is going to check. He just passed Palin in being nuts.

Cain is an Uncle Tom who doesn't realize that if it wasn't for other people protesting against the government wrongs,he would be holding the lantern in front of some Republicans mansion.He is a perfect example of wannabes who think they are so special they acquired some cash.He got his because of affirmative action,not because he earned it.It was given to him because of the color of his skin-period.He forgets as most radical Republicans do.Where he came from.
What makes him a Tom is not that he is Republican but that he willingly says the kind of ignorant and incendiary things that some of his counterparts on the right think but won't say publicly for fear of being called "racists." One of the goofiest ironies about him is that he wants to present himself as being above race, yet he keeps making race an issue. If making derogatory remarks about Democratic-voting blacks or claiming the president has no part of the "back experience" are not racially charged remarks, I don't know what would be. I don't judge him for not having participated in the Civil Rights Movement, because it WAS dangerous. But then, no one should judge the president for that either, considering that he was born in 1961 while Cain was born in 1945. Just the same, Cain should have the good sense to appreciate the fact that countless blacks and even whites shed blood, sweat, and tears so that he could be a success in a society that wanted to hold him and others back. There is nothing "special" about him in contrast to other blacks, because there are plenty who have done even better than he has, yet most vote for Democrats. While there are also black Republicans,I would bet that if they were running for president and wanted votes from blacks who normally vote for Democrats, they would be smart enough to emphasize a positive message and not stoop to insulting fellow blacks who don't vote like they do, including the president.

They already have,and in doing it, they outsmarted the folks who wanted them out. BTW, they did it for free. Every instance of police brutality, attempts to disband them, or "pundits" deriding them has only strengthened them.

It's funny you mention it, but I see Cain pulling his version of a Senility tour. He feels he is at the top of his game and he has the usual rubes gravitating in his direction.

Cain is a joke but the media likely wants to cook him nice and slow over several weeks, almost likened to a death of a thousand cuts.
