    And you need to learn to be not not so disrespectful of those with whom you disagree.

    goweeder : There are liberal papers? Where? Blogs, newsletters, yeah, but newspapers are all corporate and spend their time cutting staff and cultivating their Koch addiction.

    Wow! You’ve got me really confused. I don’t get the impression that ML is a Scrooge – more like he’s taking a jab at the Scrooges (aka Repubs).

    I am puzzled, to say the least.((??))
    I have said nothing about ‘liberal papers.;
    Perhaps you misunderstood something I said. Do you mean ’newspapers?’
    .
    On another point: I share your viewpoint on the Koch brothers and all corporations. If we are on the same side, why are you so hostile?

    John Adams was considered middle-class. He did not have a large estate to give to his children; he saved his pennies. And he was an active farmer as well as a lawyer to make those pennies.
    When he was representing Massachusetts in the Continental Congress his farm was failing and his law career was in a shambles, because he was a patriot first, and he believed in dedicating, if necessary, his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor.
    And in any case the disparity between rich and poor today is far, far worse than it was then. The richest 1 percent of Americans own 38 percent of the nation’s wealth.
    The bottom EIGHTY percent share among them a mere 7% of the nation’s wealth. Where are they going to be able to work hard and get ahead, when most of what they hope to gain is already owned by the wealthy, who get special tax breaks?
    No one said you had to be created equal financially. But getting equal financial treatment is a whole different matter. The rich pay FAR less than the rest of us.

    Going from toon to toon and copying the same post at each one is spam.
    Not agreeing or disagreeing, just that I find those who post spam as lesser persons than those who come up with original posts that reflect the toon itself.

    Turning the playing field on end is a very accurate metaphor. We don’t need to go back to the 92% top tax of the growing economy “Ike years”, but going back to the growing economy of the Clinton years is valid. Be it noted that serving the 1% is what led (under Republican administrations) to the “Great Depression”, and also the crash of 2008. (and the “dot com” crash caused by irrational greed, which makes the current DOW a little creepy, actually.)

    While there might be merit in the opinion expressed the inconvenient truth is that this depiction of "the playing field’ is plum not level.

    @davefrompaterson

    You listed the wrong items. All yours were “earned” and paid for by “contributions” that were earmarked for Social Security and Medicare. Get a clue!

    One problem with your plan. Obama has killed job creation with his policies. How about a large tax on congress and the president. They created the debt.

    You forget all The Democrats had to do in December 2010 was refuse to allow The Bush Tax Cut extension to the floor
    .
    I believe the Republicans took the House in 2010. We were trying to stave off a depression that was not caused by the Democrats, but by a wide-open housing bubble inflated by Wall Street and financial institutions that threw their fiduciary responsibilities out the window in fraudulent scams. The Republicans enabled those moves by relaxing financial regulations in place since the Great Depression to avoid that very disaster.
    .
    It was totally rattled Bush who signed TARP into law to stave off disaster and Obama who saved the American car industry. TARP made a profit of $11B, and the relatively minor loss of the auto bailout was more than offset by the avoidance of the GAO-estimated $40B and loss of 4 million jobs that the bankruptcy of the automakers would have brought upon us.
    .
    Sorry dude, the Republicans made the mess with their insane fiscal policies, and it’s been the Democrats who have been cleaning it up and pulling us out of the tailspin.
    .
    Regardless, the financial markets and Wall Street are doing just fine, thank you. It’s conservatives like you (in my opinion) who continue to bash those who are not among those elites.
