    You touched on a point that has been pissing me off for some time now.

    The problem I have is that lower class don't just make it through anymore. The system has enabled the lower class a middle class lifestyle on lower class resources.

    I have invested twenty years supporting myself and my family going week to week check to check and I still am. I am in the middle of my life and was coming into a middle income lifestyle until the housing disgrace devalued everything I have invested my hard earn years paying my dues into. I don't have much of a portfolio nor do I have that tremendously great of an income. But what I do have in income and my home has been devalued so significantly by either the housing market fiasco or inflation that I am no better off, and even less off then the lower class who have thrived during this same last 6-8 years.

    Now we have 30-40k income people qualifying for homes more expensive then mine making 20-30k less income than I do. They are living middle class lives making lower class incomes and now I'm paying for it because the system has devalued the middle class.

    This redistributing the wealth is bull****. This giving the lower income a hand out is bull**** as well.

    I support and encourage hard work and paying your dues until you achieve what you want. You live with what you need until you earn what you want. Those who achieve and overachieve should not be penalized or burdened with unfair taxation.

    Not everyone is or should be a home owner. Not everyone is upwardly mobile. Living The American Dream is not a right that everyone is entitled to. It is not for the government to distribute or hand out. It is something that you earn.

    I want my middle class life back!

    Yes, but somebody earned that money. Because someone makes enough money to better progeny doesn't mean that money is worthless. If you look at the Forbes richest person list, you'll see that many people took inheritance from their parents and used it to make more money and expand the economy in the process.

    Is what you're saying is that only the person who makes the money is entitled to it? Is passing money to future generations bad?

    250k huh, you my friend have been lied to. Most IT guys get out and make less than 50. My buddy did crypto and retired after 20 and only makes around 70k, as do most. Information Officers don't even make that much when they get out. And the whole running a 22M network thing, thats funny. How about I was in charge of a missle system worth alot more than 22million and i still only make about 70k.

  6. i'm so mixed up with this. let me explain that i am a homeowner, but do not make good money. in fact, after paying the mortgage, i've got money for food, and thats about it. g/f's medical bills pile up and such, and it sucks, but thats life.

    trickle down economics works in one scenario only : when the people that get that handout, use it to better themselves.

    sadly this only happens in maybe 5% of the population or less. my old neighbor got social security, worked full time, bought expensive ($300) pairs of sunglasses, but didn't buy milk for her kids. the problem isn't with economic theory, the problem is that when you hand money out to people, you lessen their ambition. ambition is what makes businesses. ambition is what drives you to do better. when you hand that money out, you are stifling ideas, by convincing people that you can do less, and still "make it". props to the few, and i do mean few, that take a government handout, better themselves, and come off it. that is what it was intended for - not a frikken crutch for people to survive off for 10+ years, which is quickly becoming the norm.

    by the way, welcome back b5150! we missed you.

    You are pigeon holed working missile systems. I fortunately am not. I already have a job lined up with the Geospatial Intelligence Agency when my separation comes time. And that coming out, first job is at 104K. Your friend either doesnt have the drive to make the money, the knowledge I possess, a combination of all, or the wrong market.

    It all depends on your exact skill set, who you know, and where you do it. I guarantee a private contractor in Iraq or Afghanistan with Adams' credentials makes a lot more than 50k.

    What you also have to look at is who is a better investment? Someone who has shown a propensity to make money, or someone who has shown a propensity to NOT make money.

    Rich people have made money or received it from someone who has made money. Companies are not created by people making 40k a year. It doesn't happen. Why give those people free money.

    An example is Donald Trump. He became a billionaire, lost it all and then did it again. There's a good chance with the credit crunch that he loses it all. If he lost it all and he had no money, I'd still invest in him to make money any day of the week and twice on Sunday. He doesn't need a handout, he needs government to stay out of his way and keep taxes down so he can make money and hire employees, thus ensuring the lifeblood of the economy is there for future generations.

    I agree with much of what you said but trickle down economics is most definitely not a hand out to individuals.

    What is most funny is people associate this to Reagan who did cut the tax rate from 70% (can you imagine?) to 28% for the top tax bracket but it originated with none other than John F. Kennedy.


    Oh no's!!!!

    What's really funny is that people assume Kennedy would be a Democrat if he ran today. Lets see, big on national security and spreading democracy, lowering taxes....

    You, and every other liberal has shut your brain off to the plight to small business that Joe the Plumber brought up. If you don't try to understand the difficulties a small businessman with tight margins feels, you will not.

    October Surprise - Michelle Obama Racist Rant! by Scooter Van Neuter — october surprise, michelle obama, phone tape | Gather

    This is just one article I found in a google. I also saw a youtube video and several other articles. Apparently she likes using the word "whitey" with a negative connotation.

    I also read something about the Republican party having a tape of a sermon she gave at Rev. Wright's church with several phrases denouncing "whitey".

    I haven't looked much into this. I find it interesting, but I think Barry has just as many questionable ties as Michelle. I wish they'd get examined more thoroughly by a major news network.

    she is in unlimited supply of race cards and its borderlined disgusting! she has been spouting 'racial undertones' since early '07. i am far from prejudice or raciest, just my observation and that of millions more.

    i think she is and crazier than hillary to boot. i just hope she doesn't cause her husband the election...which many dems have said they will not vote for him due to his wife.

Thats not my issue here. My issue is the people who DO take advantage. I mean WHY work when you can get paid to do nothing.

    And your part about not getting what you put in is wrong. My family worked hard and now each one of us is successful. My mother doesnt even have any post secondary education and made something out of herself, because she put in the effort. Because someone doesnt want to do the "Disgraceful" jobs of flipping burgers, or concrete construction is not my fault. Hell, I will swing a hammer in a minute if I have to. But redistribution makes people ask why... when I can get the benefits for free.

    No it doesn't, I call my friends nigger sometimes, get called nigger by them sometimes, only 2 male friends I have, 1 is black 1 is white, I'm brown.

    By your definition, we're all racist right?

    Which is idiotic in my opinion, what if someone says "I hate all white people or black people or brown people" but NEVER uses a "racial slur" does that make em not racist?

    not what I am saying at all. In fact, my career drive is for the benefit of my daughter financially, so she will not have to struggle the way I had to growing up and early on, while on my own.

    Also, I am not a fan of a redistribution, my issue was with those saying "you get what you put in". Which is not always true, as I gave a prime example, after watching my father work himself to death, 7 days a week the majority of my life. He put in, and did not get nearly equal out.

    Yet the site that you posting on right now is an example of its success.

    Wow. You seem to step in and blindly justify everything that is negatively said about Messiah Obama.

    Shoot, look at the attacks on Sarah Palin. I don't see the right justifying every little thing she does... in fact, they just do not care, and don't feel the need for every little thing to be justified.

    Since cognitive adulthood, I have not spoke that word, and don't allow people around me to utilize such negative influence. If so, I seperate myself from those people. I don't join in for the thrills of it.

    Unless we are saying Mrs. Obama hasn't reached conginitive adulthood, then I can see why you would justify her actions.
