Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

The Economic Policy Institute which Jaxocommie cites was founded and run by socialists. Robert Reich is one of them. Robert Kuttner another. Approximately 30% of their revenue is from Unions.

Why do they put out lies for the consumption of fools? Take a wild guess. Like I keep saying, lies are all they have.

Between 1980 and 2009 the lowest income earners saw their incomes increase by 49% or $7,700.00. The next highest 20% group saw their incomes increase by 37% or $15,400.00. The next highest 20% group saw their incomes increase by 77% or $74,900.00. The highest 1% saw their incomes increase by 159% or $532,100.00.

The above info was taken directly from the Congressional Budget Office.

5% in 28 years?

No. Not even close.

So the typical American household is making almost $2,400 less per year (in constant 2013 dollars) than it was four years ago, when the Obama "recovery" began."

Like I said, up is better than down, dumbass freak.

"Well, the economic "recovery" has now spanned an Olympiad, and during that time the typical American household income has not only dropped—it has dropped more than twice as much as it did during the recession.

New estimates derived from the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey by Sentier Research indicate that the real (inflation-adjusted) median annual household income in America has fallen by 4.4 percent during the "recovery," after having fallen by 1.8 during the recession. During the recession, the median American household income fell by $1,002 (from $55,480 to $54,478). During the recovery—that is, from the officially defined end of the recession (in June 2009) to the most recent month for which figures are available (June 2013)—the median American household income has fallen by $2,380 (from $54,478 to $52,098).

"According to you, shrinking is better than growing?"

Another RS trademark, putting words in the other person's mouth.

Boom!

Oh-oh, is that a rifle report I hear?

RS, shot down again.

Income grows 5% in 28 years, and RS comes out with another cliché: "It's better than nothing."

Goes well with "At least you have a minimum wage job."

The shill talks about the illusory 'free market'. There is no such thing in America. He speaks of 'critical thinking skills', yet spouts bible verses. Fantasy is NOT reality.

Invest IN America, not through it. I predict the guillotines will come out before all this 1% nonsense is over.

By the way, citing some obscure bible phrase to illustrate some obscure point you are attempting to make does NOT 'prove' any point you are attempting to make. Just to be clear, if you wish to show us something from your version of the bible, show us some verses you choose to ignore.

What's better growing incomes by 5% or shrinking income by 5%, mindless boob, brainwashed, cliche' repeater? According to you, shrinking is better than growing?

Got it.

Thanks for the vivid illustrations backing up my thesis.

But clichés like "Must we actually run completely out of other people's money" are what the GOP has. Why the GOP is determined to no longer invest in America is what should be brought to the table. "According to the Economic Policy Institute, between 1979 and 2007 income growth for the top 1 percent of all U.S. income earners was an astounding 390 percent. For the bottom 90 percent, income growth was only 5 percent over that same time period."

Yet there are nitwits who think we are "running out of other's people's money". Brainwashed, mindless boobs who repeat clichés ad nauseam.

"Must we actually run completely out of other people's money before you come to the logic table?" The only people running out of money is the middle and lower classes, which by design are ignored by Republican policies. Every single law coming out of the House now is an attack on anyone except the wealthy.

That's exactly what you should say.

I rest my case.

"It does not follow that taxing the heck out of the wealthiest folks helps the poorest folks." No one wants to tax the heck out of them. But America's best times have come when the tax made sense. Romney sending his money overseas instead of investing in America makes no sense. Trickle down failed under Reagan, is still failing.

You also spend money faster than you could possibly burn it.

Why not learn the lessons from the failed socialistic experiments of history? Are you incapable of learning? It really appears that you are. Must we actually run completely out of other people's money before you come to the logic table? You want to keep repeating the experiment until it fails one more time? You want to keep trying to solve algebraic problems using the wrong formulas and impossible variables? You repeat these blunders over and over expecting different results? You are quite literally, for all practical purposes, insane.

You place all of your faith in a Government you want to keep growing, and zero faith in people to do for themselves in a relatively free manner.

The free market is the idea. Of course there have always been rules, even right after our founding. Don't kill anyone is the main one. That covers a lot right there. But giving the power of law to tens of thousands of pages of regulations without anyone voting on any of them? Turning out regulations like there were a reward for it? Attempting to micromanage everything a business or an individual does? No. That's Marxism. Authoritarianism. It's anything but freedom.

You scream about Christians trying to impose their will (which they don't) while actually ramming your will down everyone's throats. You seek to avoid defending 2% of the people while offending the other 98%. In short, your side is stupid, foolish, couterproductive, devisive and hurdling over the precipice of no return.
