    A Democrat dreamland of high taxes on the few that work and then just millions of freeloaders.

    @ConserveGov

    Tell me when income tax hits 80% upper bracket, i.e level in 70’s

    Tell me why on earth anyone would want higher unemployment. The closest you come is the tradeoff where things like a higher minimum wage is implemented which may drive up unemployment, but that is a tradeoff for allowing greater benefits from the job

    In the present there are a lot of welfare bums, mostly those who believe that either

    R) entire deficit can be blamed on welfare for those who arn’t working ( takes up 12% budget, deficit is 20% )
    D) Can be laid purely on the back of the top 1%, taxes on middle class are evil

    The reality is that for a society to be functional you do require some form of broad base taxation. The concept behind social democracy is to work as a community.

    “The concept behind social democracy is to work as a community”.
    True, however the US isn’t a social democracy.
    It is a representative republic. At least it used to be.
    Social democracies always, ultimately fail.

    It must be killing you that California’s Democratic government is bringing the state back from your conservative desert of decline.

    China is not Socialist, it is capitalist with a one party fascist government of by and for the handful of megarich oligarchs. It chooses to call itself communist (totally different than Socialist) for political reasons known only to the fascists at the top.

    How is this different from me, graduating with an engineering degree during the Bush years and having to lay carpet for two years while job hunting?

    I play Lotto over here in Germany. Yes, the chances are astronomically low, but if you DON’T play the chance is zero, which is worse. I only spend about $20 for 8 weeks and always play the same numbers. I’m not excited about it, I see it more like a venture capital investment :-)

    Hey look it is Obama’s magic green jobs, except we the taxpayer have to pay a few million for each job created.

    Step right up folks, Obama has a deal for you, Just spend a few billion and we can have 910 magic green jobs.
    Obama’s lotto, We the taxpayer put up billions and a lucky few get the winning numbers and get to work for one of his magic green jobs. They are truly winners folks.

    Speaking specifically of China, their economy was a failure until they decided to go free enterprise (gasp….capitalistic). Of course, if the abuses of capitalism aren’t showing up yet, they should be soon.

    I to spend about 3$-5$ a week on the stupid tax. But hey can not win if you do not play.
    Here is one of the problems with the lotto here. It got passed by stating “it is for the kids” right. Yes the money is to go to the schools, but the money it raises at a local level might run a school system for a day. So you have idiots spending 20 -50 a week easy on lotto tickets and yet will not let a school levy pass in their city. talk about duuuh.

    yeh , I am on a roll today,
    My guess is this guy is going to waiting on Obama’s super job committee, oh wait.. they met like twice… never mind.
    My guess she must be handing him a welfare check or disability check. That is Obama’s idea of a job. That is the only area of growth since he took over.
