this time even the poor has been getting ripped off, Medicaid and Medicare cuts is what is starting to head our way since the first part of Obamacrap hit the nation this year.

The welfare state is growing incredibly and people still do not even put one and one together and wonder where all the jobs had gone, well the jobs are nothing but welfare jobs for those that are already in welfare to pay for it, and those that used to be a productive earner and tax payer is falling now in the welfare status.

Wake up people, wake up.

Let's see....

I work for a company that has 50-some people working out of this office. The job pays barely over minimum wage which means that I barely make over the exemption threshold for being exempt from buying insurance. Now, the company "offers" what is called a supplemental policy in the insurance business that is barely is less that what I could purchase on my own. But this sort of policy is not Obamacare compliant.

So does the company which cannot afford to pay the workers a higher wage pony up to provide proper insurance, work to make a "better deal" (about what I would pay finding a policy on my own, thus making my pay lot than minimum), do they ignore all that and just pay the corporate fines or just trim the workforce below 50 workers to avoid everything?

I have my guesses add to what happens...

My friend, Both Parties believe in Redistribution.

The only Difference is in which Direction.

GOP = Money heads North, Rich get Richer
Dems = Money heads South, Poor receive aid


Repubs & Dems = Corporate crony capitalists that make the rules for their handlers to fund their re-election and make more laws to funnel more $$$ to the handlers. The poor or rich getting money? Your a laugh riot and a believer in the well scripted hate fueled Kabuki dance of good cop - bad cop to keep the voters at each others throats which keeps us from seeing THEY are the real problem.

Give a man a fish, he eats for the day, teach a man to fish, he never goes hungry again....


Until the lake is so over fished that there is no fish left. Then the government gets called in because there's no resources there and the people there can't make a living. And then they get called entitlement people by the Republicans who want to charge them higher rates of taxes on money they don't have because the democrats want to over tax the rich to take away everything they have.

Sigh.

Yeah, redistribution my big Latino arse.

Even according to your post, it seems that Mr. Obama does indeed redistribute quite a few taxpayer dollars through his "Reward for Failure" policies.

See ya,

Capitalism is the most diabolical redistributive system of wealth ever devised.
It takes from the workers and gives to the ruling class.

That's a mathematical fact.

Democrats want Americans to hate business, Republicans want Americans to become business owners. That is the main difference in a nutshell. Obama would have you believe a Socialist America will be one big party for everybody when the truth is it will be one big party for the few. There will always be disparity of wealth. At least Republicans give every American opportunity to achieve wealth.

Nonsense!

Capitalism is based on the buying and selling of goods and services. Until "Obamacare" was passed, no one in this country was ever FORCED to buy one of those goods or services.

That's an economics fact!

Obama is for redistribution at least at a certain level, so everyone has a shot ? WOW, I couldn't agree more ( to me his idea sounds like leveling the playing field that has been unlevel for years and is so apparent in the economy, many of the rich that get upset at this kind of talk have more than likely obtained their status on the backs of others and not just by pure capitalist methods , in many cases it is not hard work and honesty that made many so rich to begin with, it is greed, deceipt and dishonor in many cases that have made these multimillionaires and billionaires wealthy) don't be fooled....one thing I can assure you, President Barak Obama is one of the the greatest thinkers and presidents when it comes to analyzing the economy, politics and overall ideology of the individual and the family that we have ever had and many refuse to own up to it, he is about 47% smarter and saavy than the two clowns combined that are running for president and vice president, what I am not for is redistribution of American jobs overseas, so folks like Mitt Romney who can further add to the redistribution of wealth and lining of his bank account and further assist those who already have much more and have acquired it on the backs of workers, free or slave labor or in much more nefarious ways, I am definitely not for redistribution to banks or Wall street either at the expense of all taxpayers like has been happening for many years , not just the 47% who don't pay taxes .

WOW! That is one of the longest sentences I have ever struggled through. After trying to read it three times, I'm still not sure what you were trying to say. I reckon it will remain a mystery, because I'm not trying again.

I believe in redistribution too! Just not in this NWO, Fascist scarcity style. Its not redistribution. It's not empowerment to all the people, equality and freedom wedded together. it's not infinite rights and co-ownership with all having land and resources. It's not the Venus Project, adapted to the empowerment of citizens, ie. councils of citizens and proportional democracy. It's not, endless education and opportunities for all to contribute as they choose to do so, with most choosing to, sharing work and always able to retrain and develop gifts/talents. Under the current system most of the world never gets to contribute and use their talents. They're whole lives are wasted and they're treated as fodder.

I believe in retristribution too, only in a system of ABUNDANCE and FEEDOM. No need for money at all.

Also Obama likes to redistribute form the middle class to the poor, impoverishing everyone. I like to redistribute from ALL THE DEMONIC ELITE. The Rothchild's, Windsors and Catholic Church have the lion share of the worlds income, on board, and hidden below the radar, in their pockets. But rather than ask for it back, just get rid of all money, even the online kind, or credits. NONE OF THE ABOVE. Abundance, Equality and No Slaves or Forcing.

Seriously, this tactic is getting old.


Give me one example of something Romney said that is untrue, and an analysis of why it is not true. I keep asking, I never get a reply.




Let's see...middle income is 200-250k, that 47% of america is nothing but worthless, entitled mooches....and thats just in the last week.

Give me an example of something he has said that actually outlines what he would do as president. How bout that? I keep asking, I never get a reply.

Well, here's Romney's five point plan for a stronger middle class:

But I hate his official website because the homepage is a huge page asking for donation.

Ugh.

Agreed the current adminstration is an abject failure just like his "trickle up" schemes.

Just like the trickle down schemes have been a roaring success. Just how is Obama robbing from the rich? The DOW is the highest it's ever been CEO's that the taxpayers bailed out are making more money than before the bailout and he hasn't raised taxes. So where is this robbing from the rich? Your just as out of touch with reality as Romney.

Trickle down works man haven't been paying attention to those billions being pumped to China?

Where they should be pumping money here and the reason they aren't is well know because it is more expensive here than there.

There is nothing wrong with redistribution of wealth. Not all the citizens have the ability to earn high wages, yet they are just as vital in their roles as Americans. Remember, the penthouse apartment cannot exist without the basement floor of structural beams.

And redistribution of wealth is not so polarizing. Alaska gives 1000 dollars a year to its citizens for the oil revenues. I don't see anti-socialist protesters picketing the Alaskan government. They just shut up and cash their checks.
