  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greece On Verge Of Default [View article]
    More baloney Bob123. You spout the left platform, with no discussion of solutions. Probably because your suggestion of solution is so dang radical that it's impossible, eg, take it all away from the "rich" via death taxes and then do what with it? Give it to the poor? Give it to the school teachers, so they'll do a better job? Build public housing in Beverly Hills? What? There are some very fundamental problems that go along with being poor, and some very fundamental reasons that people are poor. How do you make a kid stay in school? How do you make him get an education? How do you keep a teenage girl from getting pregnant? Etc, etc, ad nauseam? Lefties don't have solutions for those things, because they really don't want to solve them. They been working on them for 50 + years.

    Ha, User29356625 - I can just see the guys in the trenches saying, "Hey wait, I already put in my 8 hours today. Ask the Colonel if he's going to approve my overtime?".

    BOB123 - I challenge you to articulate what you think is "fair" for the "1%" to pay in income taxes. This should be fun.

    Soon we'll realize that we don't have to worry about the protectors of the Constitution any more. Now anything goes. Don't worry, all will be well. We are protected by the good intentions of the SCOTUS....regardless of what the law says.

    Brett...great statistics....what do they mean? Poor people don't own stock. Obvious. Why are they poor? I have two daughters that are poor. They are not poor because they lacked advantages and opportunities. They are poor because of life choices. That's obviously not the case with everyone.

    I get very tired of people complaining about the 1%. If the 99% don't like it, why not make a change. They go to WalMart and make the Walton's richer because they want to shop at WalMart. They buy flat screens and make Samsung richer because they want TV's.

    Any idea how many Inc 500 companies were started by people who were not rich?

    Speaking of Sugar - I noticed 11 oz bags of candy - Snickers for example -were $3.48 at WALMART last week. That's twice what they were 4 or 5 years ago. Perhaps Mr. Corzine and his new fund are trying to corner or control the world's sugar market??

    No Bob...those third world hell holes have absolutely nothing like the Constitution to make them a place where anyone would want to go to live. Your argument is flippant. If you think the increase in the minimum wage is good...why not raise to $30 an hour? Because you know very well that it wouldn't do anything but shut businesses down. Sure the government could require it to be paid for Federal Workers, and then who do you think would pay the taxes to support it? Certainly not those in the bottom 47%. So yep, you could raise taxes on the "rich" and see where that gets you. Every wealthy, smart, flexible person in the country would begin immediately to look for alternatives. Hmmm maybe Belize or Puerto Rico or maybe they would decide to start a private company, sell shares, and buy Hawaii or Delaware, then secede from the Union.

    There is no such thing as "Trickle Down". All consumers purchase "stuff" on which they pay a margin that gets passed on to via Trickle Up to the owners and senior managers of the companies from which they bought stuff. If you want to see poverty reduced have them invent stuff and build businesses that will make them money! Oh wait, that's a tall order for the poor and uneducated isn't it?

    Clinton was all over the idea of Sadam having WMD. Said he would never allow him to use them against the world. That was back in 1998.

    Well, we recently came up with the idea of legalizing pot so they can move to Colorado and roll cigarettes?

  • 15 Years Of Stimulus: Nothing To Show [View article]
    Our society doesn't force debt and college, but there are a lot who encourage it. Shame on a parent who would send their kid to school sucking up college debt for degrees of seriously questionable value. Shame on parents and kids who would think that the first two years of college (while incurring debt) are times to play and experiment socially. Pitty the poor students (of mind) who do not have a clue what they want to do with their lives so they can't focus on a course of action. Shame on college advisors who can't help get a student in a correct path with the potential to graduate in 3 years. Sucks to not be able to get to AP classes that will give you one year of college credit for free. Shame on college elites faculty and administrators who make more than 90% of the private business employees. Yep, we pretty much have shot ourselves in all ten toes.
