    Obama and the federal reserve are doing all they can to make the numbers look good. They are pumping as much printed money as they can into the system, causing an inflated dollar, and a bubble that will pop.
    of course by then Obama will back away and hype some other non cause and blame someone else for what ever is going on. It is what he does best.

    “Ha ha. Obviously a victim of his poor decisions. Didn’t invest his inheritance wisely.”

    He probably chose his parents poorly…

    “Homelessness has soared since Obama became President, this is the hidden message Bennett is sending.”

    You may be right. I interpret it another way: this is proof positive that trickle-down economics doesn’t work. Rewarding the investors and “job-creators” hasn’t done a ding-dang thing to creat jobs, unless you count China.

    Anyone man enough to stand up and admit that Republican economic policies of borrow-and-spend/reward the rich and all the boats will float higher just turned out to be an expensive, failed experiment? Don’t all try at once, there’s plenty of time…..

    It’s about income inequality in America, one of the worst industrialized nations at present, and we can thank Republicans, deregulation, tax tables that now castrate the middle class to feed the rich " mountain oysters" and champaign.


    The economy IS picking up, home building and sales are now picking up in much of the country, and yet we still need to do more to “even the odds” and reduce the differential in incomes and opportunities, even if it does mean folks like the Bushes and Romneys have to pull the platinum spoons from their mouths and feed the pot that IS the national coffers.

    He has a job paying $240,000 a year, and had a take home of $8,000 a month. He’d accumulated a portfolio worth $1.3 million. But he was very lucky. The judge, once it was established that he was a cuckold, ignored the Clinton guidelines and let him off with only giving his wife $1.3 million cash and $8,000 a month (tax free to his ex, taxable to him, so 100% of his take-home pay).


    His wife and her lawyer were furious: the Clinton guidelines say he MUST be ordered to pay AT LEAST $2.6 million and $10,000 a month, so he should have gone directly to jail for non-support for Life at hard labour, without the possibility of parole. The Clinton guidelines are intended to put those most heinous of men, cuckolds, not just IN the jail, but UNDER the jail.

    @Michael wme

    $240,000 per year divided by 12 months = $20,000 per month. Take-home at $8,000 per month means $12,000 in taxes or a rate of 60%. Do I have that right?
    Is there a point to your post?
    Oh, I think I get it. You’re being facetious.

    @Tigger

    Bingo! You’ve got it!

    Or, maybe not. Income mobility in the U.S has been falling for decades & is below most every other developed economy. The moat certain way to become wealthy in the U.S. is to have wealthy parent.

    PS- Homeless rates went up during 2007-2009, but have not gone up since. Obama isn’t curing the problem, but at least he’s not making it Hoover, err… I mean worse.

    @Donald Williams

    And what the heck are the “Clinton Guidelines”??

    Alimony payments are deducted from your income before you get taxed & counted as taxable income for your evil ex.

    Mwme sounds like a lot of bitter divorced guys. Don’t be a bitter divorced guy, Mwme! It’s really not attractive.
