    But wait. It’ll all trickle down. You’ll see.

    Actually, people on the Gold Coast, aka Washington DC, have done great over the past 4 years as long as they work for the government. While family incomes were dropping, they only dealt with a slightly smaller raise each year.

    O has put the BIG back into Big Government.

    Shouldn’t those tourists be East Asians???? (I can’t foresee any ethnic Europeans being able to afford to tour the ruins.)

    They won’t even fix the overpasses we are supposed to live under.

    @old1953

    LOL, wrong, wrong and wrong. I LOVE you guys when you make flat statements.”

    Perhaps you should temper the tone of your comment a little. If you go to the U. S. Office of Personnel Management, you can get the raw numbers. I found that civilian employment was only reduced 5,958 personnel during 2012.

    Other raw numbers:
    • 2009 increased 82,000
    • 2010 increased 2,000
    • 2011 decreased 20,000

    Perhaps the graphs you are referencing include military personnel. They are classed as government employees, too, and may be included in your graphs.

    They’re Canadians.

    Well, look at the help banks and big business north of 700 billion or what? Did anyone forgive 700 billion of upside down mortgage?

    @Ms. Ima

    Your personal experience doesn’t matter. You may not be in the “1%”, but your bragging makes it obvious you are doing fine. Good for you.

    Care to address Rall’s facts?

    They had to factor in the government employees laid off during the sequester.

    Except for the 600,000 Pres. Obama fired. (He’s such a Socialist after all.) Which increased unemployment and helped slow the recovery even more.

    @Ms. Ima

    Your case is most unusual, do you invest in gold and the military?

    Trickle down has never worked and was never supposed to since it was a con lie.

    “Except for the 600,000 Pres. Obama fired.”

    Between 2008 and 2012 (fiscal or calendar?) Federal employment increased by 171,400 (numbers courtesy U. S. Office of Personnel Management). I think you may have gotten your number from the number of people that are members of the American Federation of Government Employees,which, coincidentally is 600,000, and mistaken that for the number of employees laid off.
