    Six percent of the American public know that the federal budget deficit has been reduced by half since 2009. Six percent.
    -
    Four hundred Americans own more wealth than the poorest 150 million.
    -
    The Walton family own more wealth than 1/3 of the American population. One hundred million people.
    -
    Americans do not know these things, and their minds are full of lies and disinformation because 6 corporations control more than 90% of the media in the United States.
    -
    Remember Pravda? The state-run propaganda machine of the USSR?
    -
    Who is Ramirez working for then? Just wonderin?

    Ramirez has mad cartooning skills, but his efforts almost always come across as campaign ads for the GOP or reinforcements of misinformation handed down from Faux News.

    Poor Obama, He tried not to use a meat cleaver to the poor kids or the sick kids, instead he told the kids they can not come over to his house to play.
    I bet the sign on the door is “Closed: Out Playing Golf”

    Just for reference, where do you find this data? You state some very specific data but don’t provide a link.

    “Too bad Romney’s houses are closed to public viewing. After all that’s where all his tax avoided money is so we should be allowed to dirty his rug too.”


    You really are desperate for someone to throw rocks at aren’t you? For you reference, avoiding paying tax is completely legal and expected by the IRS. It means that you are complying with the law. You imply that he is evading taxes, which is illegally sheltering income from taxation.


    If you don’t like the law, work to change it, otherwise you are just part of the problem, not the solution…

    “And if you live in the USA and make 34,000 then you my friend are in the 1% of the world.”
    You’re using a false equivalency. If you live in a third world country, you can live on about $100 US a month (or less, in some instances). This is why we export our labor there. Try living on $.50 an hour here. If inflation and prices were standardized to US wages worldwide, $34k would still be just above poverty for a married couple and poverty for a family of four.

    They are going to open up the White House for the Easter egg hunt so let’s see how fast the trolls change their tune and decry wasting federal money on an Easter egg hunt.

    I haven’t seen any cartoons anywhere about Scott Prouty and the 47% video. I guess they don’t think it was important.

    You said:

    “Six percent of the American public know that the federal budget deficit has been reduced by half since 2009. Six percent.”

    And yet these stories disagree.

    Oct. 8 (Bloomberg) — The U.S. government ended its 2009 fiscal year with a deficit of $1.4 trillion, the biggest since 1945, the Congressional Budget Office reported.

    The deficit amounted to 9.9 percent of the nation’s economy, triple the size of the shortfall for 2008.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=aA8lChe4zUQU

    WASHINGTON — A new estimate puts the deficit for the just-completed 2012 budget year at $1.1 trillion, the fourth straight year of trillion dollar deficits on President Barack Obama’s watch.

    The result was a slight, $207 billion improvement from the 2011 deficit of $1.3 trillion.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/05/budget-deficit-cbo_n_1943058.html

    2012 Projected Deficit: $1.33 trillion, 8.5 percent of GDP; 2013 Projected Deficit: $901 billion, 5.5 percent of GDP; 2018 Projected Deficit: $575 billion, 2.7 percent of GDP; 2022 Projected Deficit: $704 billion, 2.8 percent of GDP.

    So how do you deal with those facts WM? And it isn’t like I got the information from some far right radical blog. So maybe I should ceck the math.

    Budget deficit in 2009 1.4 trillion
    budget deficit in 2012 1.1 trillion
    change? 0.3 trillion

    If the “deficit” had indeed been cut in half wouldn’t the projected budget deficit for 2013 be 700 billion or less? The White House doesn’t have that number appear until 2022.

    @TheTrustedMechanic

    Rant on in your ignorance TM. Maybe you should try some research instead. OR, you could look at the references I gave to refute connelly’s statement on the “deficit”

    It’s the job of the congress to raise the money to run the country and work out a budget to spend it.

    @Fourcrows

    I think I have made my point very clear. You are only adding to it.
    SO FREAKING WHAT! is what I want to say to all these Obama brainwashed class warfare wealth envy mouth breathing mouth pieces.
    I am not equivalency anything! YOU ARE! I live in the USA. And with out mommy government wanting to make things fair a person CAN make 34,000 a year no problem. A Person CAN live in the USA on that money better then almost anyone else in the world. Of course you will not have the new car or big screen TV, unless you take my tax payer mommy government hand outs that is.
