Dummy Dewhawk, the Trib is a conservative paper. The Sun Times is liberal. You are forgiven for this error as you are a dummy.
Hey Boob Dummy, middle class salaries began dropping when Ronnie Raygun began outsourcing jobs. Not due to liberal anything except in your addled low IQ brain.
Hey dumbo duhawk, if there are 1000 really wealthy people in a district with 10000 middle class people, and each person has one vote, guess what the outcome is gonna be. Or is the concept too difficult for you to understand? Yeah I know, it is.
Bush and the rest of his buddies lied. They're each and everyone war criminals and should be prosecuted. But there is no justice in America for bums like him.
As usual, you did not take your prescribed medication. Please do so immediately, and it will help you control your obsessive behavior. Alternatively, seek professional help at your nearest Emergency Department.
None of those mentioned above started an illegal war for oil and are war criminals, or tried to trash habeus corpus, or want to invade your bedroom and tell you how to live your life or what you can do with your body. They support education and equal opportunity. Sure, some of them are crooked and some are scoundrels. But again, that's why I'm an independent.
I believe that BK is changing this dynamic. He's trying to have 'the right products for the market at the right time'. But he's playing catch up. He's trying to make Intel more nimble. We shall see what happens over the next several years.
Not for the superwealthy hedge fund guys, or Zuckerberg, or guys like him. They're in it for the rush as much as for the money. And they can afford to be taxed at that rate. Clinton did it and nothing bad happened. Folks should be taxed in proportion to their wealth, not their income. Larry Krudlow says the 'rich' pay something like 34% of all income taxes, like that's some big deal or magic number. Hell, make it 50 or 60%. They've been getting a break on the carried interest tax break for years, which is ridiculous. Romney is an example of this.
Oh no, many Democrats are corrupt as well. That's why I'm an independent. Republicans aren't only filth, they're stupid filth. Sharpton and Edwards are small fry, they do not hold elected or appointed office. You got to name the big boys, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Cruz, Bachmann, Brown, Cain, Perry, Gohmert, etc.. My God, there are so many of them, the list is endless.
There is no such thing as a normal day in the markets. I urge you once more to take your meds. It will help you deal with your ARM obsession and your general compulsive behavior disorder.
But they've certainly been a lot higher...with exemplary results for the economy. I think the 'rich' should be taxed at least at the 70% rate, don't you agree?
The very fact that you ask that question confirms your stupidity.
Sorry, no one can solve the income disparity problem. Simple economics. Too many folks relative to the number of reasonable wage jobs that actually need doing. Under capitalism, one is paid what one can get, and that number decreases in proportion to the number of people that are willing to accept a decreasing wage. Corporations are in business to max out profits not provide jobs. So that's what they do. Given outsourcing to low wage countries, automation, and the number of unskilled and low IQ folks, the number of poor folks is bound to increase as the population increases. Also, political crony capitalism has skewed the laws to benefit the wealthy. So, in the future America will be a place with gated communities guarded by private police, and tons of poor people. Social unrest, violence, military force used by police to keep the population under control. No way out, except to reduce the population by about 30%. Everyone left would have a good high paying job. The end game won't be pretty. Can't have fewer and fewer working folks supporting more and more poor people. It won't work.
Here you go. Now you can understand yourself.
Intelligence Study Links Low I.Q. to Prejudice, Racism, Conservatism
From the Huffington Post by Rebecca Serles
Are racists dumb? Do conservatives tend to be less intelligent than liberals? A provocative new study from Brock University in Ontario suggests the answer to both questions may be a qualified yes. The study, published in Psychological Science, showed that people who score low on I.Q. tests in childhood are more likely to develop prejudiced beliefs and socially conservative politics in adulthood. I.Q., or intelligence quotient, is a score determined by standardized tests, but whether the tests truly reveal intelligence remains a topic of hot debate among psychologists. Dr. Gordon Hodson, a professor of psychology at the university and the study's lead author, said the finding represented evidence of a vicious cycle: People of low intelligence gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, which stress resistance to change and, in turn, prejudice, he told LiveScience. Why might less intelligent people be drawn to conservative ideologies? Because such ideologies feature "structure and order" that make it easier to comprehend a complicated world, Dodson said. "Unfortunately, many of these features can also contribute to prejudice," he added. Dr. Brian Nosek, a University of Virginia psychologist, echoed those sentiments. "Reality is complicated and messy," he told The Huffington Post in an email. "Ideologies get rid of the messiness and impose a simpler solution. So, it may not be surprising that people with less cognitive capacity will be attracted to simplifying ideologies." But Nosek said less intelligent types might be attracted to liberal "simplifying ideologies" as well as conservative ones. In any case, the study has taken the Internet by storm, ...
How about the highest tax rate on wealthy folks during the prosperous Clinton years? What's your intelligent opinion about that? Maybe we should do it again.
The government steps in when private business won't. No demand for goods or services equals no corporation hiring equals job cuts to maintain profits equals low wages equals no demand. A vicious cycle. The government spends to to try to mitigate this. It works to greater or lesser extents. Simple economics that you, being a dumbo conservative, don't understand. To you it's so simple, handouts to lazy people to buy votes. Try to use your brain, if you have one, to think.
