If you took every nickel from every billionaire in the US and distributed it equally you would receive about$17,000. I don't think Bernie knows that. He thinks there is a magic pot of gold out there that will pay everyone a hundred grand a year.

Obama and his wall street and banking cronies are making a fortune on the backs of average Americans. If you think Bill Clinton made a lot of money when he left the white House, just wait, Obama will make put him to shame!

But you are making extra money by posting Right-Wing Talking Points in every Internet Discussion Board. It's a tedious and really dishonest occupation, but I suppose it supplements the numerous govt benefits you already receive.

I suspect that other members of your cretin clan are doing the same thing, and not claiming the income from Fox News, who is your employer.

Maybe if you moved out of your mother's basement, got a real job, and got help for your pornography addiction, you would get a life. In the meantime, please get dressed and get rid of those old, sticky magazines... Ewwww!

WTF are you babbling about? Put down the pipe, turn off Chrisy Matthews and Butch, and get some help. Hopefully, someday you'll be able to get off the taxpayer's backs, but I doubt it, you sound like a loser.

funny how the Mossad/CIA false flag op in Paris has taken our minds off the CIA/NSA hacking of Sony's computers

Notice how the very same leftists who so support Charlie and 'free speech' now were the very same ones who cried for the multi-culturalism that brought about the Islamic threat to Europe!

The Paris attacks-Points To Consider
http://www.activistpost.com/2015/01/6-points-...
Vindicated -It Was a FF
http://www.activistpost.com/2015/01/vindicate...

1. Mass mainstream media buildup and rollout, with ready-made “placards” to call global attention to event.

2. Questionable videos and details of the event, as well as drills or security buildup prior.

3. Military training for the perpetrators, while the “terror” suspects with deep state connections and rap sheets run free.

4. A false dialectic of left versus radicalism polarizing public consumption of propaganda.

5. Investigators and key individuals in the event end up “suicided.”

6. Media quickly fingers low IQ duped patsies based on magical ID appearance (think 9/11).

7. More funding for militarization, surveillance and police state with media replaying past terror events ad nauseam.

The top #2 investigator of the incidents has now turned up dead from, you got it,“suicide.” Important individuals in the 9/11 event mysteriously turned up dead, too, and members of the power structure that pry too deeply end up gone.

meanwhile the restaurateurs and merchants in downtown Bratt are losing customers--people are sick & tired of the aggressive panhandlers creeping up on them while they try to get in / out of their cars or walk the street shopping etc.

Most of the rich ran quickly after the tax cut was signed to find loop holes, but President Trump closed most of them. Now they have to find new ones or pay their share. What some politicians do not seem to understand is we can look at a paycheck, and tell if we have more money then we had last year. We know if we got a bonus, and never had one under the last Administration. We aren't deterred with bimbo stories. The Democrats cannot run for office on porn queens, and gun control.

That's a big problem in many places with busy downtown areas. The panhandlers just seem to grow in numbers.

My pay check has increased, as did most of the people in my family. What kind of work do you do? And you see no increase in you pay?
