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

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.

And of course, when teacher told the "free"man to do his homework, he copied it off little Susie, rather than do his own research, and passed her work off as his own. (WorldNetDaily, perhaps...speaking of parrots)

"Trickle-down" is a pejorative term invented by the liberal opposition to try and obscure the dramatic turn-around our economy took under Reagan's leadership.

The left today likes to call Reagan's stellar results, a myth. I wonder what they'll call Obama's. They also need to learn to pronounce words a little better, as words have meanings. Obama...Pariah, not Messiah.

Bush II = The black unemployment rate reached a low of 7.9%.

Obama = Black unemployment 14+% and worsening. Do you really want me to highlight all his other numbers showing what an abject failure he is by every measurable matrix?

Why do black people and other medium to low income people do so much better under much more conservative leadership? I thought Democrats were all about the blacks, the poor, and the poor blacks? It's just another lie. By voting for Democrats, their lives and those of their children suffer greatly, disproportionately even...from the actions of Democrats. But still, they gravitate with overwhelming majorities, to the Democrat Plantation, like moths to the flame, and moths don't fair too well in a flame.

JFK would be a conservative by today's standards. "A rising tide lifts all boats" is a quote from he.

"I genuinely and deeply believe the economic package we've put forth will move us toward black economic freedom, because it's aimed at lifting an entire country and not just parts of it. There's a truth to the words spoken by John F. Kennedy that a rising tide lifts all boats. Yes, I know it's been said, "What about the fellow without a boat who can't swim?" Well, I believe John Kennedy's figure of speech was referring to the benefits, which accrue to all when the economy is flourishing." (Ronald Reagan)

Reagan = The black unemployment rate went from 21% (from Carter's term) down to 11.5%. Net worth of families earning between $20,000 and $50,000 annually grew by 27%. Inflation reduced from 13.5% in 1980 to 4.1% by 1988. Real gross national product rose 26%. Prime interest rate reduced from an unprecedented 21.5% in January 1981 to 10% in August 1988. Rebuilt the American military and won the Cold War without firing a shot.

I don't believe I've ever hollered about companies moving off shore, just the money that the wealthy were supposed to trickle-down into America.

To my earlier point, I would just like to know what the heck I'm going to have to pay the "G" without having to play at "guess where the law is". Maybe, (if all goes well), we'll actually have a budget for 2014, that might help with the predictability problem. Still have to navigate through the "ObamaCare Nightmare" and other whims of Congress. My deductible, by the way, doubled and even after it's met, I still have a 80% copay. Ohhh, that "Affordable Health Care Act" sure hooked me up. Thank you Mr. President. I don't qualify for the mandate to offer health benefits but I have been told by employees that they will take the $95.00 per year penalty until they get sick then sign up. I'm sure Uncle Sam will fix that little "hitch" in the "plan".

Don't pay any attention to normanlake, why bother even responding to Mr. Read Uponit, aka Parrott Boy.

At some point, jax, there has to be a limit to what you can ask of any group of citizens, wealthy or not. Stagnant wages in the middle class is a problem, I feel it, most of us do.

You seem to think that the "trough" will never run dry. You holler about corporations moving offshore and, in the same breath, call for higher taxes. I'm confused.

Why not set a flat rate, no loop holes, for everyone. Make it progressive but predictable. Right now the unpredictability that is rampant in our system is hampering organic growth. That's a problem. You cannot just keep taking from the successful and expect a incentive based system to function. Surpluses in the federal coffers are a reflection of decreases in private capital. When the "Public Paul" is running a surplus, it means that "he" is stealing from "Private Peter".

WHAT great words do you think you have written? I see NONE. Trading blurbs with YOU is like having a conversation with a squirrel. Nuts!

Yet all you've done all day long is respond to me, and****at my heels.

Look at what I've written versus what you've written. You have zero writing skills, no creativity, no originality, you're dumber than a tupperware toothpick, and are a goose-stepping commie.

Eat sh*t loser. My socks are smarter than you.

Its about time YOU, little feller, graduated to FOURTH GRADE, you need to come up with some more original taunts. I would 'pass' you just to be rid of your immature presence.
