Hmm.. So the choice is:

Romney: Filters Porn

Obama: Bankrupts my children, Erodes the constitution, Welfare World.

Hmm ya I'll take the porn filtration please.

You mean Reagan's taxcuts bankrupt your children, unless they're born millionaires already.

Reagan hasn't been president in how long now? Shit the guy is dead. Liberal answer to everything Tax the rich! How bout we cut some f'in spending? K thx.

1) You're talking about two different problems. "Do your feet hurt? Wear a hat!" I have no problem with reducing spending from the proper areas
2) I am not particularly liberal, but go figure, someone that fits a political profile exactly thinks everyone that disagrees with them must be the enemy
3) Yeah, Reagan is dead. No president has fixed his mistakes. Democrat or Republican. They've all kept the problems
4) Lacking taxation on the rich is a huge issue. We have a monumental wealth inequality strangling our economy. People are ridiculous about it, though. "But they're job creators!" No they aren't. CEOs made 29 times what the average employee made in 1978. Today, after we've cut taxes on the rich, they make 351 times. How? Why? Because, rather than create more jobs, they've cut costs (American jobs) and pocketed that money. Allowing the ultra wealthy to earn an unlimited amount doesn't cause them to create jobs, it causes them to find ways to earn more money! It's not hard - no one likes sharing wealth, so if people are given the option not to then they won't! This leads to the giant wealth inequality we have, which in turn leads to too few people having too much of the money, which in turn leads to an overall reduction in spending because people don't have the cash to spend, which leads to the economy dropping, etc.


Not sure why people that whine about how sharing the wealth is communist think that the ultra rich would willingly share the wealth rather than build their own bank accounts...

Holy Jesus...you truly believe that this country's wealth is a static, fixed amount with the evil "rich" taking "your" share through nefarious Hollywood inspired deeds?

The bottom line is that "adults" like yourself still suffer from the maturity of a child and all the childish envy that comes with that undeveloped mindset. It is not enough for you to whine that others are unfairly successful, you have to actually manufacture a moral justification for your childish ranting.

What another person makes is none of your fucking business and has zero bearing on your life. Grow up, try to be a man and pay your own way.

1) When did I say anything about being evil? Is wanting to gain as much wealth as possible evil? If so, I guess I'm evil. I should note here that I don't think any less of Romney for paying less in taxes - a smart man doesn't pay a dime more than he has to. I don't know why people would want a president that intentionally paid more than was asked
2) Not sure, either, when I said anything about static or fixed. I said that, when the growth is exclusively in one small segment it damages the economy by reducing overall spending. People always seem to forget that this is proportionate, and in order for a small amount to earn more the rest has to earn less. Earnings correlate directly to spending. Spending correlates directly to economic health. With so many earning so much more than they could ever spend there isn't enough being spent to keep the economy thriving. Nothing to do with static, fixed, or evil...
3) No envy here. I was fortunate to grow up in an area that emphasized education and will be in the top 1% in probably 5 years tops. Then again, I focus on earnings in the 7 digit and above range, not merely 1% range
4) It actually has an enormous amount of bearing on my life. As I keep saying, the concentration of wealth is damaging our economy. People focus on "a man should keep what he earns!" but keep ignoring that in order for him to earn it someone else can't. If he's earning it and spending it, fantastic, but if he's earning it and putting all of it in the bank then yes, yes it does have a bearing on my life by slowing the economy of the country I live in
5) Your assumptions about me are asinine
