    I guess I have a different idea of what constitutes the "parasite class".

    My view is that they all reside on Wall Street. they don't make anything, create anything or build anything.

    Then liberals should actually get a job and stop trying to get rich gambling in the stock market. If nobody invested, those people wouldn't exist.

    And by the way, unlike the parasite class, at least the people on Wall Street actually wake up in the morning, get out of bed, and go do something...

    Vidi, that is an excellent post. And it is time we all stand together. I believe you have actually changed my mind. It's time we did increase taxes for all of us, including the rich and those who don't pay now. And it's time we look at what this country really needs and what it doesn't in the short term and make those cuts. It's time we all stand together and make the hard decisions for the next generation. We owe it to them.

    Instead of being Democrats, Republicans, Independents, let's all be Americans again.

    I know Republicans are concerned about the fetus, but children can't take any more of their "attention".

    Cutting school lunches.

    Bigger class size.

    Fewer teachers.

    Cutting children's health care.

    See what I mean?

    I almost never agree with you, but in this case, I make an exception.

    You are 100% correct.

    Well said JoeB!

    thats what happens when the gov't is up for sale to the highest bidder/lobbyist/SuperPAC. McCain/Feingold AKA the BCRA tried to address some of that. Thanks for nothing Citizens United

    But what they do is largely destructive.

    And as much as you whine about the "parasite class", the fact is, a lot of people who avail themselves of Food Stamps, Section 8 HOusing, and Medicare actually have jobs.

    They just don't have jobs that pay well enough to get even these basic necessities.

    it wont be easy convincing others of the truth of it and that American resolve is whats needed in this fight.

    As evidenced by this thread, people are often too busy pointing fingers to see what needs to be done and accepting responsibility for actually doing it.

    Spread the word, Brother.
