Well, according to you, I just got out of my "Emperor-size" bed, which has a mattress stuffed with money (mostly $100 bills). Now I'm in my basement sitting in a pile of gold & silver coins, tossing them into the air and saying: "Mine, mine... they're ALL mine!". Then I laugh at things on TV which show poor people suffering.
That is what you think, isn't it?
That's because you have a comic book mind and that's the narrative that Obama has told you repeatedly. He believes it too, because he has no experience, no credentials, no accomplishments and has never run ANYTHING in his entire life. He's a far left-loon and Alinsky's rules told him that class-warfare is the way to go. ObamaZombies are just 21st century storm troopers & suckers, nothing more. You are not doing one damn thing to help anybody.
The "rich" are the real heros. The truth is that "the rich" (which ain't me) keep their money in the economy, mostly in stock, bonds and invested in their own companies in the form of equipment, personnel, training, etc. Yes, child, that's what they REALLY do with all that "loot".
When Obama starts draining it to feed the welfare monster, he'll drag the economy back down. Eventually it'll even begin to weaken the "safety net", which means you're on the side that's HURTING the poor, not helping them. La-La Land, like everything else that's imaginary, cannot be unlimited, no matter how many fools, children and liberals think otherwise. Bleed the economy enough to fund it, everyone suffers, especially those on the bottom.
That, deary, is reality. Live with it.
“There you go again.” No, the middle class are the real heroes. The stock market, 71% of it, consists of the capital of the middle class. Of the total invested by the wealthy, about 60% is invested in the US in various financial instruments (stocks as well as bonds, treasuries, etc.) with the remaining 40% invested overseas (China, Brazil, India).

Do yourself a favor, as a Republican, stay away from fact-based statements. Facts and Republicanism don’t mix.

Would YOU bank on it? We are in debt over 16 trillion dollars worth AND there is TOO much out of control spending still going on with no end in sight! Debt, beholden to another country AND borrowing just to pay the interests on that debt!

YOU should not post and watch TV! Take your own advice there madame!

Hmmmm..... neither does this:
com·mu·nism [kom-yuh-niz-uhm]
noun
1. a theory or system of social organization based on the holding of all property in common, actual ownership being ascribed to the community as a whole or to the state.
2. a system of social organization in which all economic and social activity is controlled by a totalitarian state dominated by a single and self-perpetuating political party.
3. a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned
Yep, no mention of idiots or morons there either. Guess you were right. My apology.
Oh, but it does seem there are some other features in the above definition that seem to tie in nicely with you and Herr Obama, particularly the notion that everything should be controlled by the state, a self-perpetuating political party and class warfare.
But that's a bit extreme. You're not communist...yet. Tomorrow we can look up "socialism" and "fascism" and see how many of their traits apply to liberals as well.
This is fun! Glad you took us this way.
In the definition of communism you showed just take out Political Party and put in Corporation. Now doesn't that sound more like the radical rights thinking? Think about it.

<quoted text>You lost the election. Now, try to adjust to REALITY.
The welfare monster is Defense spending for not ready for prime time projects with huge cost overruns, corporate welfare at more than double the rate of social welfare spending (which protects primarily our children and enables their custodial parents to stay upright and able to care for them). But, over in Oklahoma, Republicans there are at it again - working in spite of Constitutional Laws, to prevent elective abortion and to compel us to subsidize unwanted children and the mothers who don't want them. Bummer. You can really count on those children growing up to be happy campers and contributors, huh?
Why do you never ever focus on what the wealthy are really doing with their wealth? They're using the excess to buy more for themselves of what should be spread across all income sectors. I provided you an example with the end of corporate pensions - 50% of us no longer have a defined corporate pension. So, you want to slash Social Security and Medicare too? What do you want to do with old folks? Should they stay in jobs that younger Americans really really need - since younger workers are losing defined pensions and need to start like yesterday to save?
[sigh]- When Obama's Free F*cking Apples Forever runs out of apples, there'll be an awakening. Or maybe not. It could be we'll all starve to death while the dollar becomes worthless and riots break out, as has happened in other socialist wet-dreams. Who knows? I'm smart, well-educated and logical, but unlike liberals, I don't claim any magical powers, like foretelling the future with 100% accuracy.

Deary, life does not end with one tiny election, which he won with fewer votes and a smaller margin than he did in 2008. Blame-shifting, lying and propaganda will only take Herr Obama so far.

The nice thing about reality is that you can't BS it forever. But Obama IS indeed an excellent teller of tall tales. Maybe with him in charge it'll just seem like forever. LOL!

As for the "wealthy", I look to socialism's past and present record. All I see is that things shift around, but there's always an elite. Socialism's bunch are just the most rotten, consisting of the scum of the earth in some cases, to the grossly incompetent at best.

As the old saying goes: "Those who can, do; those who can't, teach." Similarly, those who can run a business and create REAL jobs do so, those who can't join government and bitch like little children in order to take over those same businesses, putting everyone out of work. It isn't an "old saying" yet, but after Obama it probably will be.

La-La Land cannot change human nature. There will always be scumbags. With Obama and the libs, they'll just shift over to government work. That'll give us a sagging economy AND scumbags, as government has never been efficient in the entire history of man on earth.

You can believe otherwise, but you're just wrong. Human evolution doesn't occur because we wish so hard to be "better people". That's unscientific and illogical. Liberalism is counting on making us all "better", the same way the communist promised they'd create a "new socialist man".[Note how they used communism and socialism almost interchangeably.] Ain't going to happen. Sugar plum fairies will also not fly out of Obama's butt anytime soon either.

Did you know that the detectives took Zimmerman back to the scene and walked him through what he claimed to have happened. Even had him lay on the ground in the position he was in when the presumed struggle over the gun took place. They aren't charging him with 2 Degree murder unless they have evidence that he's been lying.
Just like he did with the judge about his money and his passports.
By the way you didn't answer my question about what would you think about this scenario if it had been someone you loved that had been killed by him.
did the gf lie about what she said TM said?

did the original eyewitnesses not see what they reportedly said they saw?

did the ME fudge the autopsy report?

did GZ injure himself?

why do you and others keep bringing up the bail hearing? didn't it occur AFTER the incident and faux Arrest Warrant?

the thing about this travesty is, if GZ today, who tomorrow?

if FL gave in to domestic terrorism, which state is next? yours? mine?

what's next, military drones flying over US soil? Oops! already there!

maybe our FG selling guns to drug lords? Oops! already happened!

a sitting 'peoples' Pres equivicating about whether or not killing NON-violent American people in violation of the Rule of Law? Oooooops....

as far as answering your question about about a BS hypothetical 'what if', when are you, or any one else, gonna present any evidence to contradict the FACTS as we now know them?

you are an intelligent person, take off your 'tragedy' hat and put on your Common Sense hat and follow the FACTS only.

or, are you like NTR, and rely on using 'negatives'(mythical things that never happened) to argue/prove a point (like Obama's wonderful actions to-date has prevented worse)?

did we get to this SORRY national state by one Pres/Party's fault? or, several Admins/Parties over several decades?

so far, this case is bad enough. think what we will become if GZ is convicted on the NON-evidence we have now?

arguing this case is like arguing whether or not Obama is a FAILURE: the obvious need NOT apply.

does it not give you pause that the Super of WH Staff calls the Pres a liar?

our Pres tells lies about Benghazi? and then tells lies about telling lies?

that our new Sec of State can transfer millions of dollars to Egypt with a mere word but the previous Sec of State couldn't spend $1 on additional security for our consultate in Libya?

White House, Holder respond to Rand Paul:‘The answer is no’
March 7, 2013 | 1:21 pm | Modified: March 7, 2013 at 2:00 pm

Attorney General Eric Holder wrote Sen. Rand Paul,R-Ky., to confirm that President Obama does not have the authority to kill an American on U.S. soil in a non-combat situation, Obama’s spokesman announced today.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney quoted from the letter that Holder sent to Paul today.“Does the president have the authority to use a weaponized drone to kill an American not engaged in combat on an American soil?” Holder wrote, per Carney.“The answer is no.”

Carney added that,“if the United States were under attack, there were an imminent threat,” the president has the authority to protect the country from that assault.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized Paul for posing the question.“I find the question offensive,” he said on the Senate floor this morning.

Did this several times for six years. Loved the pulled pork sandwiches at Daryl's across from Fayette Mall, loved the Diego Salad and (do not laugh)lamb fries at Columbia Steak House off of Alexandria Drive. Too bad that managers wife killed him and burned the place down! Loved the Dawahares at Garden Springs or was it Gardenside? AND that factory outlet store on Southland Drive. They would cut the name brand labels out-loved to buy jeans and sweaters there. Loved the Landsdowne Shoppes off Tates Creek. Ah, the memories...my friend and her husband live in Bealetown, Va and work in DC. now. Well thanks NTR for the Lexington mention. I am like you here, love the place. I actually bought a new Camaro Z-28 from Countryside Chevrolet in Laweranceburg BECAUSE it was sharp AND I wanted a car with Ky. on it somewhere!

A mildly interesting, incomplete and wholly ridiculous analysis. But thanks for pointing out that the nasty "rich" also help the middle class, who are also invested in stocks, bonds, etc. I appreciate you unwittingly helping my case, even if you did it by accident.

Those nasty business leaders run those places where the middle-class have their money invested. Those places also give the middle class their jobs. Government? Nowhere to be seen, except that it's where the losers go who can't run or work in a REAL business. Kind of like Obama, who's never had a private sector job, or run anything at all, in his life.

You think good thoughts on occasion, but you have no idea where they came from and most certainly no idea where they should take you. It is indeed, however, a complicated mix, which you did take us to, even without meaning to go there. I'll add that government does indeed have an important role.(I'm not an anarchist!) But that's a topic for another day.

McCain and Graham attack Rand Paul’s filibuster
Posted by Aaron Blake on March 7, 2013 at 12:29 pm
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-poli...
Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) filibuster appears to have exposed a divide in the Republican Party,
McCain and Graham said they support the president’s right to use deadly force — including drones — against U.S. citizens on U.S. soil who are engaged in terrorism, when there aren’t other options available.
“I don’t worry about [drones killing Americans],” Graham said.“Here’s what I worry about: that al-Qaeda has killed 2,958 of us and is going to add to the total if we let our guard down. And I will do everything in my power to protect this president — who I disagree with a lot — and future presidents in having an ill-informed Congress take over the legitimate authority under the Constitution and the laws of this land to be the Commander in Chief on behalf of all of us.”(cont.)
further proof that the Country NEEDS a NEW Conservative-voiced party.

I'll not hope or hold my breathe waiting for such a National movement... clearly half the population have lost their way... like here.

"According to a February report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the sequester includes $42.7 billion in cuts to discretionary defense spending, a 7.9 percent reduction; $28.7 billion in nondefense discretionary cuts, a 5.3 percent reduction; $9.9 billion in Medicare cuts, a 2 percent reduction; and $4 billion in other mandatory cuts, a 5.8 percent reduction.(See Table 1-2 on page 14.)
Claims that the sequester only cuts 2.4 percent (or 3 percent) of the federal budget ignore that the sequester does not apply to the entirety of the federal budget. Rather, it mostly targets discretionary defense spending and domestic spending. Those programs will see budget reductions more than two to three times higher than the amount claimed by the Public Notice ad and some Republicans."
