    Thank you, Obama administration.

    What? MORE uninsured, even with Obamacare passing? Sounds like what happened in MA with Romneycare.

    Why does Obama hate black people? (for the terminally stupid, that is a parody of people who claimed Bush hated black people).

    Notice the people in the soup kitchen line and then notice the people working to provide the food. Notice any thing unusual. I didn't either, it is just a case of people that work helping people who don't and their savior sold them down the river and never batted an eye. You got to have the money to fly the dog to the vacation estate.

    Fucking bank ATM's and airport kiosks.

    Seriously, this is how Obama and the Dems want it, the more broken people there are, the better the Dem chances.

    Now that the wealth has been successfully redistributed, when is the change gonna come?

    We were first told of the Grand Bargain back in the 1980s. It was called, variously, Supply Side Economics or Voodoo Economics or Trickle Down economics.

    The idea went something like this: if the rich get more money through tax breaks, they will inevitably spend that money to create jobs.

    Well, the 400 richest families in America now control as much wealth as the bottom 50% of tax payers COMBINED. The top 5% of the wealthiest individuals control more capital than the bottom 85% of wage earners.

    Now that what the Right fears most about Obama (wealth redistribution) has happened, I, and many, many other Americans sit waiting for the trickle down to begin! What's going on here, Conservatives? Did your theory become a turd in the punch bowl yet again?

    You got everything you ever wanted! The richest Americans are cruising along with a negligible tax burden, the corporations are sitting on piles of cash, the rich are richer than ever before! Where's the trickle down? When's it supposed to start?
