Who invented the wealthy taken advantage of people who are not? Did liberals invent exploitation of people who aren't wealthy? Here we go again. Someone who is not wealthy defending the wealthy. Why? Let them defend themselves. They don't care about you. That's why CEO salaries are through the roof. Have the wages of workers increased on a similar scale? I don't think so.
It isn't about hate. People are just sick of bending over for the wealthy and their puppet politicians. Wait a minute. I guess you can call it hate. I hate to get anally brutalized by the wealthy. Other Americans feel the same way. Meanwhile, people like you worry about the poor people on stamps or aid. You lost focus as to who the real abusers are.
It's hilarious. You act like your wealth is being redistributed. When you make over $300,000 a year, start complaining about wealth redistribution. Until then, try concentrating on what is in your best interest for once in your life.
Well maplesap, when was the last time some poor ass liberal signed YOUR check? That's right, you must be getting your money from other means. Leave the wealthy alone, they found a way in America to make their money and invest it, all this hating on success, came about as an ideology by obama , because if he got you to believe it, you would support it. Why don't you ask yourself, how much money has obama given to charities? He and biden are cheap ass liberals, go and tell them to give you money. Of course we already know that they would rather piss away taxpayer money than to put theirs up....fools, you re elected this inexperienced man, who thinks he is doing what HE believes is right for this country, when his policies are destroying our country. Just keep an eye on the jobs numbers if you think I am blowing smoke up your arse.

Sorry Charlie, I prefer to read for my sources, not listen to any radio gibberish. If I really want to get a laugh, admittedly I listen to Mr. Maddow on MSNBS, Or that whining horse face, Mr. Ed. Try getting your sources by doing a little research and try being independent , not following party lines like a rabid lemming. It will only make you look more foolish and prove that you cannot function with your own ideas of freedom and require a liberal socialist to empower you. I preferred the other guy because he was about self reliance and not about bullshit taking money from other people. The way I see it, is if you can't use your brains and your back to get it, then get at the end of the line, with hard work, your chance will come. Go Bless America.

If only Mr. xxxrayted was able to net a PROFIT from his rental property, he may just end up making that coveted $300,000 USD a year...too bad he only makes a quarter of that...and a third of his earnings go into stalking people on highways and department stores, that he SUSPECTS is on welfare...LOL!

Great. Now give me one example how you personally had to "bend over" for the wealthy. Just one. Better still, give me one example of how I had to bend over for the wealthy--or perhaps your neighbor or relative.
What you liberal minded people ignore is that no matter what, we all pay for the so called attacks on the wealthy. Let me give you an example: my employer has to endure the expense of Commie Care. It's going to cost him %20,000. Now, do you really think my employer is going to go to his check book, write out a check for $20,000 to Commie Care?
It doesn't work that way; never will. It's called the food chain. Those on the top don't worry about getting eaten. They just eat more of those below them. So should I expect a raise from my employer after he pays this tax from Commie Care? Should I expect more benefits such as medical or retirement? Or should I expect no raise for the next several years? And what about our customers? Do you think my employer will charge the same rates as he did before Commie Care?
Okay, so now we see the trickle down expense flow chart. It's real, it's been going on for decades, except those who hate the wealthy that refuse to acknowledge it. So my employer freezes my pay, his customers have to absorb the cost, our customer has to pass on that added cost to his product, and you and I pay for that in the store.
But gee! Why should I stick up for the wealthy if I am not wealthy?
Better questions would be IF 'Commie Care'(as you call it) is removed, will your employer drop the cost of the goods or service that he is selling? Would you and your customer base be able to afford the product that your employer is putting out there? Without government regulations, would you be able to afford health insurance, after supposedly sticking it to the government, by banishing 'Commie Care'(your words) and doing away with restrictive socialist government regulations (another one of your analyses)? Will you get that raise that will put your wage above the inflation rate, so that your money is actually worth something when you get it, when the government isn't there to protect you, kid? You just don't see it, do you?

Envious bitter haters like you ONLY see what you have in your hand for money right now. You don't see what you are given by the government. You can always get a majority of what you put into the system back, but you figure that you should get MORE out than what you put into the system, and when you don't get it, you obsess over who has what you believe is YOUR money, not AMERICA'S money. You think that the street outside your house was built because people wanted it there? If it was up to these same people, they would have charged you 4 times the price to build that road in front of your house, because they don't care about you, no matter how much you want to believe that they do. Government ensures that these people build schools and roads for communities in which you live, while offering those people that build these schools and roads for communities certain benefits (pension, unemployment insurance, etc.), ensuring that the employer offers affordable options (like group health insurance, worker's compensation, vacation pay, holiday pay, etc.), and giving communities where bitter idiots like yourself live an opportunity to have all the amenities that you want in your community (like power, water, sewer, roads, schools, fire stations, police stations, etc.) AT A FRACTION of what it would really cost a community like yours to get all these amenities from a business if they were to come in and build it for you, xxxrayted!

But hey...socialism is evil, right? So my question to you is, why haven't you approached your employer, and asked him to hire you on as a contractor (not an employee), so that you can purchase your own health insurance, opt out from paying unemployment insurance and government pension off of your cheques, and paying your own taxes, huh?

You don't even believe the drivel that you are blubbering about on here, because if you do, then it is fair to say that you know NOTHING about American foreign affairs, or your own military for that matter...this is why Romney lost the election, kid!

America threatened Iran by conscripting Iraq to do its dirty work, while arming Iraq with chemical weapons, xxxrayted, and they put the weapons in the hands of an American educated puppet leader, of whom was a minority in his own nation (a Ba'athist Sunni...representing only 10% of Iraq's population), and allowed him to go buck wild on his opposition...as long as he continued the fight against Iran. Care to guess who that was, back in 1979, xxxrayted? Why do you think that Bush was able to say that Iraq had weapons, retard? You think that Iraq was mass producing weapons, when they didn't have the capacity of doing so, and most of Iraq's population refused to obey the American supported dictator in their nation? Just remember...it was when Saddam opened up his eyes, and saw that America was out to screw over his nation, and the whole Middle East, not even a year after the Iran/Iraq war terminated, and set to put a stop to it, as well as stopping developed nations like America from stealing Iraq's oil from Iraq, and funnelling it across the Iraq-Kuwait border, that that was when America felt that they had to go to war with Iraq, and label Saddam a dictator. Isn't it funny how America left Saddam in power for over a decade AFTER they labelled him a dictator? You really don't get the bottom line, do you? You think that America did what they did to liberate Iraq? Why do you see people in masse demonstrating against the war in Iraq, with the 'No Blood for Oil' signs, xxxrayted? Do you think America's goal in trying to destroy the cartel (OPEC) is a fairytale?

I don't even have to touch the Castro thing. A true believer in religion would never ask for immediate gratification. Are you trying to float the idea that if one were to pray for a handful of diamonds, instead of candy, from God, that they should just get it like that, xxxrayted? Government provides, but God sees to it that His subjects are taken care of, whether government is there or not. Your ranting is quite amusing, but rather pointless. Start working, rather than simply praying for what you desire...faith WITHOUT good deeds (including hard work) yields you nothing, and will definitely guarantee that you will not see the afterlife, xxxrayted!

There was a discussion on the radio about government and religion several years ago. The focus was on Cuba. A Cuban immigrant called in to tell what took place when he grew up there.
He stated that Castro would meet all children. He would do this in school with his henchmen. He instructed the children to close their eyes, hold out their hand palms up, and ask God for some candy which the children did. He then instructed them to open their eyes only to observe their hands were still empty. He repeated the experiment except this time, ask Castro for candy. And as the children held their hand out, this minions will fill their little hands with treats.
The teachings of Communist and dictator governments is to train people that there is no higher power than government. There is no God, so don't bother praying. If you need to live, to survive, to endure calamity, you ask government--not God.
In a roundabout way, this is exactly the teachings of our Democrat party. Remove God so that the highest power to rely on is government. It's no wonder why the American Communist Party and major dictators around the globe endorsed DumBama. It's no wonder why we have record government dependents.
Iran has been a pain in our asse for the last 30 years of more. Not once did we ever threaten them. At the same time, they've expressed desire to wipe out Israel. And you think Iran is building nukes for defense? Man are you naive.

But gee! Why should I stick up for the wealthy if I am not wealthy?
Sad that I have to explain this to you. But since you defend the greedy rich, I will. Do you have a cell phone? Most people do. Text messaging is one way that the wealthy have taken advantage of others. The technology used for text messaging is free. Tell me why these companies have raped people for billions of profit from text messaging? That's billions with a B. Cry me a river for the wealthy. There are some people on here who don't even know text messaging costs are financial rape. Don't even get me started on "activation fees" and other crap(what does "unlimited" mean LOL). You know your party sticks up hard for telecom. It's the main reason why they fought against net neutrality. Fracking pathetic.

Want another example of greed. Look what happened to Netflix. Here we had a company who was offering a fair service at a fair price. Everyone was happy. Content providers made money. Netflix made money. Consumers weren't overcharged. What happened? The greed of the wealthy showed its ugly face again. They started charging Netflix and arm and a leg for content. Netflix of course had to make price adjustments. Not only that, they were forced to cut content and move to more foreign content. Why? Because of the greed of the already wealthy. Couldn't have everyone happy. They wanted more and more money.

Cable companies have been sticking it to people for the last 25-30 years or so. The list goes on and on. Do I have to get into insurance companies? Whether we have auto, medical, homeowners, or life insurance, we all are a victim to their greed.

Most developed nations have socialized health care. If their healthcare is so bad, tell me why some our athletes have to go to Europe to get medical treatment? LOL The U.S. is just joining the future with "Commie care", stop living in the 18th century.

It simply costs more to live in a developed nation with a higher standard of living for all citizens than it does in a developed nation with a lower standard of living for all citizens. But it all balances itself out at the end of the day.

Stop defending the wealthy. They are the ones scamming you every time you turn around. They are the ones with lobbying political puppets to keep the scams going. Wake up!

God is removed from public settings because people have different gods. You people get very riled up over your make-believe gods. You guys start wars over whose god is real. Why not remove god from the public eye and make it a private matter? By doing so, people have one less thing to fight about. Keep your god in your home or place of worship. That is all social liberals want. We aren't trying to stop you from engaging in fantasy. Just keep it to yourselves. The U.S. was not meant to be a theocracy.

You're naive when it comes to Iran. You do know that the U.S. helped to overthrow Iran's ELECTED government, don't you? Why? For oil. You can't get me with U.S propaganda talking points because I read. Iran is saber rattling with the "destruction of Israel" talk. Iran nukes Israel, Iran no longer exists. Those "pimps" who run Iran really want control over oil without the U.S. dictating what goes down. The same reason the U.S. overthrew Iran's government is the same reason the U.S. doesn't want an Iran that is able to defend itself and its interests.

I am on the side of the U.S. on this one. I am not on the side of ignorance. At least admit what is going on. We can't have citizens ranting and raving about Iran wanting to destroy the world. This is about OIL. If the U.S. stops Iran from getting nukes, it is for oil. It is so that you can have cheap oil. It is not for freedom and apple pie. Stop buying the bullshjt the government feeds you. It's all there in HISTORY BOOKS. Read about the past to understand current events. Talking about Iran has been a pain in the a$$ of the U.S. for 30 years. lol How long has the U.S. and the west been a pain in Iran's a$$?

I'd expect someone who is wealthy enough to pay me what I am getting paid now to be a fiscal conservative. I would expect that person to vote his interests. I do the same. Let that person protect and fight for his interests. I'll protect mine. I don't have to fight for the wealthy. I know people are always there to take their place and pay me. We may be replaceable, but they are also replaceable. Usually they use all kinds of underhanded tactics to keep their potential replacements from competing with them. You guys need to wake up and stop defending the wealthy.

Regular people were fighting against the wealthy before Obama's parents were born. They were fighting against the deplorable conditions the wealthy had them working in. Remember reading in history books how regular people had to fight the wealthy for workers' rights? LOL And you think Obama invented all this "class rage" that is going on?

Let's not MISQUOTE what Iran's heads of state have said about Israel, mapleman...Iran's current heads of state haven't said that they want to DESTROY Israel...they have said that Israel shouldn't exist, in the legal sense of the word, or even the Biblical account of the present. Their comments arise from the post WWII colonization of Palestine, and Israel's subsequent aggressive annexation of Palestine and Egypt, and the Suez Canal, which sparked the 6 day war. Many Arab heads of state have said that negotiations with Israel would have to start with Israel retracting their borders to pre-1967 Israel borders, which would give Egypt back most of the lands back that Israel took from them, and most of the land that Israel took from Palestine. With Israel continuing to expand their illegal settlements and their security barrier, that encroaches into Palestinian lands, it further threatens the livelihood of Palestinians and the peaceful coexistence of Israelis, Palestinians and other Arabs in the Middle East region and Egypt!

America had the resources to quash this decades long conflict back in 1947, but instead, you have to look at one truly important factor, and that comes right back to OIL! Just remember when OPEC was in the works of being formed, mapleman. Rumours have it that OPEC was being constructed as far back as 1949, but I'm sure that talks between the countries of the largest producers of crude oil have been going on before that, with Iran and Venezuela being the first players in the formation of OPEC. Now you see why leaders like Chavez, Ayatollah Khomeini and Ahmadinejad are vilified by developed nations. America has chosen instead to arm and support Israel's inhumane and illegal annexation of Palestine, while slaughtering and displacing innocent Palestinian victims, with the hope that their support of Israel would deter Middle East countries from joining OPEC, and thus end up turning over oil for the land and the livelihood of Palestinians. Israelis are marks for the U.S., and if the U.S. gets what they want, they will abandon Israel for oil!

Every time you post, it seems you display your ignorance of our country. The federal government does not have regulation that my employer must provide me with vacation, medical care (before Commie Care) holiday pay or anything else for that matter.

I work for a small company that does not fall under the regulations of Commie Care, so it's not my employers problem. I was merely giving an example. But now Commie Care may be my problem, because the Communists will put out a mandate of minimum coverage. If my employers coverage is unacceptable, I will then be forced to get a much more expensive medical plan using after taxed money on my own. My employer will no longer provide me with before tax medical care. Now do you understand?

Now companies with a little over 50 employees are going to lay people off so they stay under the 50 employee requirement to get forced into Commie Care. Others are reducing their full time employees to part time (under 30 hours per week) for the same reason. You Socialists call this a solution? DumBama tried to fix one small problem and created dozens more in their place.
Like most libs, you don't see the writing on the wall. You really believe DumBama cares about Americans. What he cares about is making more people government dependent--that's all he cares about.

Sad that I have to explain this to you. But since you defend the greedy rich, I will. Do you have a cell phone? Most people do. Text messaging is one way that the wealthy have taken advantage of others. The technology used for text messaging is free. Tell me why these companies have raped people for billions of profit from text messaging? That's billions with a B. Cry me a river for the wealthy. There are some people on here who don't even know text messaging costs are financial rape. Don't even get me started on "activation fees" and other crap(what does "unlimited" mean LOL). You know your party sticks up hard for telecom. It's the main reason why they fought against net neutrality. Fracking pathetic.
Want another example of greed. Look what happened to Netflix. Here we had a company who was offering a fair service at a fair price. Everyone was happy. Content providers made money. Netflix made money. Consumers weren't overcharged. What happened? The greed of the wealthy showed its ugly face again. They started charging Netflix and arm and a leg for content. Netflix of course had to make price adjustments. Not only that, they were forced to cut content and move to more foreign content. Why? Because of the greed of the already wealthy. Couldn't have everyone happy. They wanted more and more money.
Cable companies have been sticking it to people for the last 25-30 years or so. The list goes on and on. Do I have to get into insurance companies? Whether we have auto, medical, homeowners, or life insurance, we all are a victim to their greed.
Most developed nations have socialized health care. If their healthcare is so bad, tell me why some our athletes have to go to Europe to get medical treatment? LOL The U.S. is just joining the future with "Commie care", stop living in the 18th century.
It simply costs more to live in a developed nation with a higher standard of living for all citizens than it does in a developed nation with a lower standard of living for all citizens. But it all balances itself out at the end of the day.
Stop defending the wealthy. They are the ones scamming you every time you turn around. They are the ones with lobbying political puppets to keep the scams going. Wake up!
How ridiculous. You say the wealthy are bending you over because of what they charge for non-essential products that you don't have to have but only purchase as an option? That's bending you over? Please.

Let me ask: if you were going into the stock market, and you narrowed it down to two companies you would invest in. One is a company that grosses 600 billion dollars, but has a 3% annual growth, The other is a company that grosses 10 million dollars, but has an annual growth of 7%. Which company would you invest in?

You guessed it, the 7% growth company. WTF would you care how many billions they have? All you care about is growth and that's it.

This is the way business works. All large companies depend on investors. In order to attract investors, they have to show growth--not billions of dollars. It's not because of greed, it's because they want as many stock holders as they can get.

You are comparing people asking for religious to be a private matter to people who want it eradicated from society? Seriously? That's an apples to "whatever grows on Mars" comparison.
God is removed from public settings because people have different gods. You people get very riled up over your make-believe gods. You guys start wars over whose god is real. Why not remove god from the public eye and make it a private matter? By doing so, people have one less thing to fight about. Keep your god in your home or place of worship. That is all social liberals want. We aren't trying to stop you from engaging in fantasy. Just keep it to yourselves. The U.S. was not meant to be a theocracy.
Freedom of religion would create a theocracy? I didn't know that. Because when I grew up, religion was everywhere; from city hall to public schools. From public schools to places that served alcohol. From places that served alcohol to your courts where if you were a witness, you had to place your hand on the Holy Bible and swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth.

Guess what? We never formed a Taliban. We never executed people because of different or not religious beliefs. Not one person was harmed, and in fact, we had more and stronger family units and believe it or not, we didn't even have metal detectors because kids didn't carry guns to school.

You let clowns like this DumBama force you into healthcare, forcing businesses to close because it doesn't meet his liberal agenda, and you're worried about the expression of God.

No wonder we are all F'd up today.
