So Gary where are you on the food chain?
I believe you are the one that is clueless.
This country has been losing jobs for the last forty to fifty years.
Millions of farmland acres taken out of production.
Things are coming to a head.
As we sit here and point out and argue how ignorant the other side is,
China sits there patiently and waits.
The growing pains of establishing a world economy.
It appears we are becoming a divided nation.
When is the last time both parties acknowledged that they really did something to benefit the whole country.
The fact that we import so many of our goods and a lot of our food,
we are losing our independence.
Just remember Gary, when the bottom of the food chain loses it's food source, you'll eventually lose yours.
Just some of the thoughts of this bottom feeder.
So what do you produce on a smart phone?
Food, Steel, Clothing.
Just hope there does not come a time when the boats stop coming.
Jason K. and Kevin N., very well said.
A couple hundred years ago one of the greatest Unions was formed in the world, these United States.
There was a time when this union provided a service for the good of it's members. Has that time come and gone?
The reality is that most of our footwear, clothing, and steel are imported, to name a few. Goods that we use to produce ourselves and made the Union strong. I wonder why our Union leaders let that happen?
You might look at your taxes as Union dues to help support the Union. Are the dues being dispersed without consideration of the views of the membership?
We all belong to one of the greatest Unions in the world and it and it is only as strong as it's members.
"United we stand, divided we fall"
"Revolutions are successful when an organized minority discovers that the majority is split, is indifferent, confused, without vigilance. Then it is revoluntionary tatics to confound and disconcert the majority by side issues, by speeches on humane subjects, by beating the drum of progress and liberalism. They play on humane distress, they create emergencies."
"Prior to 1913 we prospered like no other Nation in History because the Congress issued and controlled our currency, as laid down by the Constitution. On December 23, 1913, Congress delegated this all-powerful privilege to a Private Corporation under the control of the International Financiers-known as the Federal Reserve System. President Wilson kept Congress in session until the F.R.A. was passed-two days before Christmas, when many had left for home and those remaining, anixious to go home."
Excerpts from " Conquest or Consent" by W. B. Vennard.
Thus the beginning of " The American Economic Revolution".
Timing was everything. The rest is History.
It appears money has become the master not the servant.
There is no doubt there are some incompetant drivers on both sides of this issue.
My comment was made for the people that do care.
Bottom line is sharing the road safely, and as it has been mentioned before, by having a little respect for each other.
Maybe cyclists need to wear orange vests, like the hunters do.
They are a slow moving vehicle for most part and and should have some warning signs, such as a tractor or Amish buggy going down the highway.
In theory isn't the money in circulation like a closed loop, and when you start making profits from interest and didvidends, the money has to be created somtime to make up for profits.
So now all we are doing is putting money into circulation to make up for all the profits that were made over the past years.
The money has to come from somewhere.
Since you appear to know quite abit on how the Federal Reserve works and how it works with our money system, I had some questions for you, or anyone that might know.
When the Federal Reserve annouces it is going to raise or lower interest rates, does that mean, that is the rate the Federal Reserve loans money to there member banks?
Do the member banks eventually pay that money back at that interest rate?
We are told that it costs 'x' amount dollars a day or month to support our military actions, and the tab keeps building.
But it takes an act of Congress to bail out our problems at home.
Do we have two sources of money?
Did WE have an open line of credit for the military?
Money or the lack of it, is a pretty big issue.
No matter how much one might have or not.
It controls and affects our lives including our health.
Creating stress, the paying of taxes, interest rates, insurance of all types, paying for government programs that we argue about, stock market,
it's affect on the world economy, etc..
Just trying to get a better understanding.
I believe it will support some of what you say.
You should also JLM
" The power to tax is the power to destroy"-John Marshall
So the question is Who do We want to destroy?
You talk about the creation of good jobs and real wealth, when the fact is for the last thirty years or so we have lost steel mills, clothing factories, and factories that make parts for machinery and appliances etc. We import the majority of are goods, including food.
What if the boats stop coming?
With all do respect could you talk more of the good jobs that would or could be created and elaborate on what you believe to be real wealth.
An explaination of how Mr. McCain's tax policy would be fair and equal.
