    So are the poor in your book as miserable as the libs claim they are? From what I have seen the poor have ot pretty darn good thanks to the generosity of liberals with other peoples money

There is simply too much labor available and its an employers market.

    You cannot just change the Law of Supply and Demand when it comes to Labor just becuase you do not like the social consequences of that law.

    Globalization means the uneducated are going to lose and will not be able to achieve a middle class lifestyle as easily as earlier generations did. "Average is Over". Simple fact that you, your "progressive" economics and bleeding heart cannot change.

    and meanwhile the left continues to demand the "rich" pay their fair share

    When is eneough enough for these people?


    The Top 10 Percent of Earners Paid 70 Percent of Federal Income Taxes

    Top earners are the target for new tax increases, but the U.S. tax system is already highly progressive. The top 1 percent of income earners paid 38 percent of all federal income taxes in 2008, while the bottom 50 percent paid only 3 percent. Forty-nine percent of U.S. households paid no federal income tax at all.

    Well according to some of the posters on here. No one who makes less than 75k a year should have to pay any income taxes at all.

    Which is nothing anyway since the bottom 50% of taxpayers pay a measly 3% of all Federal income taxes collected

    We should and they should. The problem is that people like you have drank for the massive VAT of intoxicating beverage, which doesn't even allow you to THINK outside of the 'economic' box your mind has stepped into.

    Things CAN and SHOULD change. And the people living here in America, should exert as much influence politically and legally as they could ever muster.

    This man is correct, in my view.

    In any case, money the major component of what ails America. More specifically, how it is used corrupts many... and most here will not escape its effects.
