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

Saint Reagan in the modern era began the Capital Gains advantage for the wealthiest 'Americans', lowering the CG tax rate from 39% to 28% to 20% during his tenure as spokesperson for the wealthy. The historically low Capital Gains Tax is the largest contributor to high income inequality in America today. Crony capitalism at is most vehement,while Slashing Capital Gains, Income Dividends flow to the wealthy while we head toward another Greta Depression. NO growth, NO JOBS, NO investment. The conservative MYTH of 'job creation' and investment by those who have the game rigged, the deck stacked are earning record profits, and where are the jobs? the Freeman says the pendulum will swiing back toward the American worker when the developing nations wake up and demand higher wages, well guess what, those nations will NEVER allow unions, so it will be a long time coming.

"A rising tide lifts all boats" (JFK)

Right now we have a democrat President and a democrat senate. Tell us a lot more about how horrible things are for the middle class.

Obamacare already includes a stack of regulations 7 feet tall. Ever read a book 7 feet thick Normindless? Got any comic books that thick? Coloring books?

Every jot and every tittle that Obama and democrats spoke about Obamacare was and is a lie.

Why do you continuously belly-up to the lie bar? Nevermind, it's because liars love company. Without company there's no one to lie to. Carry on.

Corporate profits are up in the sky, workers wages are down in the dump. Capital Gains by the wealthiest 'Americans' appears,in my limited understanding to be greatly responsible for the income disparity in this 'Union'. The Class Warfare envisioned by conservatives, is exactly that, but it is the uber wealthy waging the war. Some wealthy folk pay as little as 15%, the lowest in 50 years, resulting in the rich 'earning' ALL the income gains during our latest recovery, or what passes for one, an the MASSIVE deficit. Recent history, as of the 1980's . The top 1%, the corporate scoundrels that 'earn' their wealth by moving money around, with no real work involved, while the rapidly shrinking Middle Class heroes LOSE wages, benefits, and their savings.

Get your fat arse off the couch, SHRILL, go out and explore the world instead of living in the DRUDGE REPORT; you might learn something.

Now YOU just wait a minute, SHRILL. I've put up with your racist paranoia about gays, Muslims, communists, blacks, liberals, immigrants, etc., etc., but when you start attacking pot smokers, you've crossed the line, buster!

It appears the only legitimate job provider, according to Junior here, is the Government. He thinks it's a myth that wealthy people are the job providers. If you follow that line of illogical non-logic, there's also no straw, grass, or mud in the Great Wall of China.

But that doesn't mean dummy has any objection to the coming commie state. He can't think anything through to either it's logical or illogical conclusion.

He is so blinded by ideology, that facts and figures are mere emotion to him. He hasn't allowed his mind to progress beyond the reactionary feeling stage. if someones takes his bottle or doesn't change his shorst for him, he cries. He is 100% emotion and zero logic.

Bathing his brain in weed every day doesn't help. Weed smokers make the dumbest statements under the sun, look at it, amidst the all-encompassing self-imposed stupor created, and think it brilliant, when in reality, it's absurd poopoo pudding.

D...ADD to these warped economic disparities the Health Insurance Industry is 'earning' record profits. Now, I am not as schooled as you think you are on this economic situation, but I do have a profound sense of what is right. After WWII, in the fifties, the marginal tax rate was92%. We travel thru time to ta~da, Ronald Reagan, who determined that in order to reward the 1%ers, a 50% MTR was better, even though those rates amounted to massive cuts in revenue, thus UP goes the Deficit. Bush later lowered the MTR to 35% to favor his wealthy pals (YOU would call the 'job creators', naively). Again, UP goes the Deficit. Tomorrow, we will attempt to clarify the effect of Capital Gains on Debt and Deficit. Dealing with you jokers is giving me a headache. I will remain calm and not give in to the name calling that you find so necessary in communicating, but 'two jerks' does come to mind, but I will refrain.

"Free"man, your understanding is cloudy, and while you and the shrill one cherry pick your numbers and stats, in an effort to seem scholarly in economics, and seek to marginalize opposing opinions you appear to be looking from the point of view of 'wanna~bes'. The income gap, which you are correct about, IS complex. Then, you veer into incredulity, and mumbo jumbo. In reality, in 1960, 1% of Americans held 10% of the wealth. Today, the top 1% hold 40% of the wealth, while the top 5% hold 63%, since 1980. (St. Ronnie). Also, since the 80's upper income wealth has risen 256%, while Middle Class wages and benefits have remained stagnant, even have nearly disappeared. Decent pensions have been replaced by 401K's, while more and more, Employers have contributed less, while the workers are made to pay more and more of their own health care, creating in the process a need for National Health Care.

If you want I can go into detail and break each concept down into hard numbers and the associated demographics.

Posted 388 days ago.

Freeman

The fourth, and final, concept is the effect of a successful reconstruction and the ability of the emerging global powers to compete with the U.S. The gap in wages relevant to the incomes of the capital investors is completely expected and will, over time, most likely swing back into the U.S. worker's favor as the middle classes in the developing economies wake up and demand higher wages.

Where am I going wrong Nor"irrelevant"ManLake

Posted 388 days ago.

Freeman

Second concept would be the dramatic increase in the manufacturing capability, and it's subsequent job creation, during the war years. This is important because it provides the baseline for determining modern wage expectations for the years following WW2.

Third concept is the utter lack of manufacturing ability by the war devastated world powers that left only the U.S., and its workers, as the engine of reconstruction.

Freeman

Let's all be clear. The gap in incomes is real. Do we all agree? Question is why.

If you would like me to I can describe for you my understanding of the issue. It is very complex and encompasses 4 separate concepts and their relative effect on the "gap".

First concept relative to the modern economic condition of the "gap" is the 1929 crash and it's effect on the reduction of the "gap" between the upper and middle class wealth.

Normanlake is irrelevant. Won't answer a question or even provide a source that backs up his point of view.

Mr. Read Uponit won't articulate an argument, just says that "history" proves him right.

Who's "history"? Point to the analysis that supports your position. Should be simple enough for someone who "reads up on it" so frequently.

By the way, I presented many of the actual numbers from Reagan's tenure. Nothing is more specific than numbers. You presented nothing but general lies, just like always.

Me: Numbers You: Nothin'

You either didn't read them, don't believe them, or just can't stop lying defending quantifiable failure due to ideology alone, facts and actual results be d*mned.

Being stupid is one thing, being a fool is quite another. You're both.

AGAIN with the Reagan MYTH...a broken record, play something pertinent. Ayn Ranidan greed and selfishness, a shrinking middle class, very little long term economic improvement, a rising poverty rate,oh yes the good old daze of Reaganomics, which never worked for a majority of Americans. It is far too easy for neocons to re adjust the blame, ala phony economism, and blame some other system for the disastrous trickle down economics that began with Saint Ronnie.
