America is quickly becoming a third Wold Country now that is has 50% (makers) working class and 50% (takers) welfare recipients. Maybe we should all just quit our jobs and set on the couch and talk on our Obummer phones

Excuse me, but the average American job pays $26,000 per year. Have you tried living on that? And that is the median, so half of jobs pay less than that! We have huge unemployment. We have the wealthy and corporations running off with all the profits and you blame the poor? The poor have been created by the wealthy capitalists in this country whose greed has become so utterly disgusting that our nation is sinking into demise.

The only takers in this country are the greedy capitalists who literally steal from their workers with low wages and who purchase our government right from under us to ensure the legality of doing so.

The majority of the poor is being created by an incompetent leader. He is doing little to nothing about the trash coming in from China, Hell even his job czar Immelt (CEO of GE) is outsourcing many of their jobs to China. Obama is also killing millions of obs by refusing coal miners and oil drilling to continue

No. It's the economic system that doesn't work for the majority of people. We need to regulate it to make it work for everyone or we need a new system.

The lower 90% of Americans haven't had a raise in the last 40 years under both Republican and Democrat administrations.

America still produces an abundance of wealth. But all of the gain now goes to the top 10% who make 50% of all income.

lets not forget the land was supposed to belong to the people, but it has never been shared with the people. bankers, government, and elitists hoard it up and "manage" it under a bureau of land management government buracracy, fulfilling thomas jefferson's prediction.

Yes. Decide you dont want homeowners insurance and see how much you "own" your home.

Fall short on your property taxes and see how much one "owns" their home.

[-] -1 points by freewriterguy (882) 2 years ago

get a land patent, and you wont have to pay anyone anything on your land again. people are dumb, like sheep to the slaughter.

there is an exemption on your title insurance for land patents, proof that our country was stolen from us and given to banks, by our government, elitists, and corporatists.

[-] -1 points by Nowsmichigan (-310) 2 years ago

The Gov is still buying "land grab" thousands and thousands of acres around the US. Although some of it that is "off limits" to Americans citizens that paid for it by our tax dollars

Why don't we all start government contracting privatization frauds, banks, hedge funds and other non productive businesseses? When we're all rich off usury and corporate welfare no one will have to work.

We can have a debate without the name calling. You started it and I was defending myself

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

But you're the one using racist slurs like "spic" & "illegals.

You're a racist piece of crap.

So the name calling is your style.

[-] -1 points by Nowsmichigan (-310) 2 years ago

People that enter the US "illegally" are called and have been called for many centuries "illegals". Were you just born or are you from a different Country??

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Centuries"? WRONG!!! only foryears by racist republicans. Thats why they lost the election.

You're a Racist piece of shit!

Best to overstep the safe boundaries, and have to demand a bailout.

How else could you afford a holiday in the Seychelles?

100% reactionary, retarded rightwing comment. Thank you....but naaah! Keep trying though. You have been sensible before and can be again.

[-] -3 points by Nowsmichigan (-310) 2 years ago

What is retarded about the comment, because it is the truth?? Roughly 50% of Americans are on Gov assistance

[-] 3 points by Ache4Change (3316) 2 years ago

100% of corporate banker gangsters are on 'Gov assistance'! If only 50% of your brain was working you would only be half as dumb as you appear to be!

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

"retarded" is another slur.

Please refrain!

Have some respect for your fellow human beings.

If someone attacks me with slurs then I fight back

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

You START attacking. And use racist slurs ("spic" "illegals") because you are a racist piece of shit.

[-] -3 points by Nowsmichigan (-310) 2 years ago

Go away loser

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Racist piece of shit!

Just more meaningless name calling.

Your racist ignorance is so 19th century. Progressive people have rejected your kind of intolerance!

Anyone so hateful they would use the slur "retarded" must be denounced as ignorant, hateful, intolerant pieces of shit!

Isn't there a rock waiting for you to crawl under?

LMFAO.

Racist piece of shit!

You are not for progress but only here to "stir the pot" and promote hate against each other

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

You promote hate by calling people names, using racist slurs ("spic,", "illegals") and other hateful intolerant slurs ("retarded").

Didn't you and I argue about native Americans and gay people also?

You suffer from a lot of 'isms don't you.? Your hateful intolerance is what has destroyed the republican party. You are a republican aren't you?

[+] -4 points by Nowsmichigan (-310) 2 years ago

You call me a racist when you yourself make many slurs on here also

[-] 3 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Nope. You degrade people by using hateful slurs like "spic", "illegals" & "retarded."

You are a racist piece of shit & should be denounced roundly by any considerate progressive people who come across your ignorance.

You are also homophobic? & misogynist?

[+] -5 points by Nowsmichigan (-310) 2 years ago

You only promote hate and nothing else. You are garbage

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Homophobic? Are you afraid of gay people?

Do you hate womyn too? Or just latino & mentally ill?

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Gosh. I think you need to form a union...........:)

Nothing better than unionization, for the middle class.

America was already a third World country for many that live here.

We have people that are "under employed" for the benefit of the company and, if possible, work a second or third job as "under employed". So, you can pull a 90 hour work week and still come up short.

I would also like to point out that these are not the best of times. It wouldn't have received any attention if the middle class didn't take a hit or two.

You left out the WallStreet takers.

Why do they always miss that simple fact?

[-] -1 points by Nowsmichigan (-310) 2 years ago

Wish we could get some of the money that WallStreet gave to the Obama campaign

Keep wishin', besides they gave more to Romoney.

On that note, you also forget Adelson.
