On behalf of the citizens of the United States, please accept THIS apology for the past three years of inept leadership by an incompetent President, the worst in history.

On behalf of all Richmond voters, please accept this apology for the conduct of Eric Cantor who is probably more responsible for this rejection than anything else. Cantor was an embarrassment when he walked out of the White House budget meeting and when he required offsetting budget reductions to provide emergency funds for Irene's victims. His silence is now deafening.
He was also too gutless to present his defense of inequality speech yesterday because the audience might have included folks other than buttkissers.

I suspect you were taught to read, but never learned to comprehend. From Mr. Cantor's speech: "They are trailblazers like Steve Jobs. A man who started with an idea in his garage and ended up providing iPhones and iPads to millions and changed the world. Job building and community building are what successful people can do. Through his example, you can see that America needs more than a jobs plan. It needs a Steve Jobs plan. In a Steve Jobs Plan, those who are successful not only create good jobs and services that make our lives better, they also give back and help everyone move just a little bit further up the ladder and everybody wins.

Instead of talking about a fair share or spending time trying to push those at the top down, elected leaders in Washington should be trying to ensure that everyone has a fair shot and the opportunity to earn success up the ladder. The goal shouldnít be for everyone to meet in the middle of the ladder. We should want all people to be moving up and no one to be pulled down. How do we do that? It cannot simply be about wealth redistribution. You donít just take from the guy at the top to give to the guy at the bottom and expect our problems to be solved.

Instead, we must ensure fairness at every level. We must ensure that those who abuse the rules are punished. We must ensure that the solution to wealth disparity is wealth mobility. We must give everyone the chance to move up. Stability plus mobility equals agility. In an agile economy and an agile society, people are climbing and succeeding."

You might be right, it started with obama-Biden in 2008.

The cowardly little man did not have the nads to visit Louisa or Mineral during the "Chicken and Grape Soda" bus tour of Virginia. Good thing for him becuse he would have had to answer the FEMA question without his brain. The brain (telaprompter) is most likely on it's way to the Bellwood Flea Market.

Spoken like a true "I deserve it because I am me" type person.

Steve Jobs, "Greedy Bastard", I do not think so, fact is that Jobs used the greed of the music industry to start his company. The poor little whiny bitches were crying about NABSTER and the spin off file sharing community and Jobs created a vehicle where they could get some money and people could still down load music. Your envy is so apparent.

By the way, I have gone down to the Occupy Richmond area twice and to be honest they are a joke, just like the rest of the groups from Wall Street down. When you cut through all of their bull shit about not wanting outsourcing of American Jobs (all the time hooked up to their I-Pods and driving their Hondas, Toyotas and one Volvo) all they want is everything to be free to them, starting with free college.

I want to see how many of them are still camped out in January and February and then we will see how many of them are really dedicated to their message and how many are there to party and demonstrate just for the food, beer and girls.

i didn't bother reading Cantor's crap. Did he mention the FACT that we, the US, are losing out economically, not to low-wage countries like China, but to Germany and Japan which combine high wages and advanced technology with socialist policies and good-quality public education?

Coincidently this article came to my attention this morning:
STEVE JOBS REPRESENTED MUCH OF WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE U.S. ECONOMY TODAY
ď[snip] for all the praise heaped upon Steve Jobs over the years, it's clear that his role in making the iPhone a reality was greatly exaggerated. Jobs' role was akin to Aladdin rubbing the magic lamp. The super-sophisticated high-tech manufacturers of Japan and Germany then brought Jobs' ideas to reality....

The fact is the real heavy lifting and the technological wizardry that makes the iPhone possible comes from Japan (and to a lesser extent, Germany). This shouldn't really be surprising: virtually all of the world's most advanced manufacturing takes place in either Japan or Germany these days.

About $61 of the $179 price goes to Japanese workers who make key iPhone components,$30 to German workers who supply other pieces, and $23 to South Korean workers who provide still others. Around $6 goes to the Chinese workers who assemble it. Most of the rest goes to workers elsewhere around the globe who make other bits. AND THE SHARE OF THE U.S. WORKERS (WHOSE ROLE IS MOSTLY RESEARCH AND DESIGN ON THE IPHONE): A MERE $11.

It's clear that the iPhone is really much more of a Japanese product than it is an American product. The key, crucial enabling components that make smart phones like the iPhone possible are made only in JapanÖ..Apple is not a particularly large company---and most of the jobs it creates in the U.S. are unskilled and not particularly well-paid. The only real U.S. beneficiaries from companies like Apple are the handful of people at the very top, as well as the stockholders (which, of course, are not only in the U.S., but worldwide)Ö.

Far from being the "crown jewel" of today's economy, it's clear that Apple represents a great deal of what has gone wrong with the U.S. economy since 1980Ö.Jobs has been hailed as a genius and visionary who contributed a great deal to the U.S. economy. But I beg to differ. In reality, he was nothing more than a narcissistic, greedy, modern-day Robber Baron whose policies account for a great deal of what is wrong with the U.S. economy today as America continues its long-term decline.

As indicated in the above article I was wrong. Most of the manufacturing was done in Japan and Germany with their high wages and advanced technology with socialist policies and good-quality public education with only assembly type labor being done in China. http://www.beggarscanbechoosers.com/2011/10/s...

I apologize for the error.

In your original post you stated,"The Only Idea For Addressing Income Inequality In Cantorís Non-Speech: Donít Say Mean Things About Rich People," and now you admit that you "didn't bother reading Cantor's crap," I'm afraid you sir,madame, or hermaphrodite, have no credibility and anything you post is beyond suspect.

I did not say: "The Only Idea For Addressing Income Inequality In Cantorís Non-Speech: Donít Say Mean Things About Rich People."

That was the headline on the article linked:

Well, Placebo Boy, feel free to head out for the 3rd World country of your choice. You might want to be a little careful though, most 3rd World countries have lots of folks with a penchant for chopping off limbs with machetes for no particular reason.

Of course, the inequality would probably be better than the US, if you overlook the machete thing. I recommend Nigeria.

Stick with it Roy. it might be futile but one hopes that a post might stick in the mind of a person on the verge of becoming enlightened. Your detractors can't stand to hear the truth but we shall overcome. It might take time to outlive these neanderthals with they're dreams of a by gone era but the quest is righteous. Capitalism is a dead horse now, brought about by the very ideals some posters stand on. Curious they don't see irony. I'll be leaving this corrupt land in a year and taking my retirement and social security with me to live in Europe, no its not perfect but at least they try. Here, citizens can't see past they're own greed and fear, the very roots of corruption.

I didn't make any mistake about the 3rd world. I made a mistake (& immediately corrected without anyone pointing it)in my comments on Apple's destructive manufacturing policies.

The FACT is the US has a higher degree of inequality than many 3rd world countries. Among the developed countries, only Chile, Mexico, and Turkey have worse income inequality than the US.

According to the CIA, countries with worse income equality than the US included: Senegal, Venezuela, Turkmenistan, Sri Lanka, Cote d'Ivoire, Azerbaijan, Croatia, Kyrgyzstan, BangladeshÖ.there are more. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-...
