Millennials Mired in "Wealth Gap"

But don't you wonder how many of them still think it's Bush's fault?
Leech is good, too, but a tick is easier to draw in an identifiable manner. When the Ds glom onto the more descriptive mascot, they'll want it to be easy to identify. You don't think they're not proud of what they are, do you?
I always assume Bill Gates and Warren Buffett will be paying for most of it. And judging by their attitudes toward government, they'll love doing it. If there were a way to force rich Democrats, especially rich Democrat politicians, to pay their "fair shares," there would be less pressure on Bill and Warren, but that seems unlikely. Did failure to pay his FICA stop Timothy Geithner? No. Getting caught merely means paying delinquent taxes, at least 3 years worth, as the law requires (but nothing more).

Obama is Poisonous

Obama warned us about this, told us what he thinks of the Constitution, on NPR in 2001. In part: "If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court. I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed people, so that now I would have the right to vote. I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order as long as I could pay for it I’d be o.k. But, the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendancy to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that." Obama's all about The Little People--even though he seeks his donations from the 0.0001%, all of whom just love him -- despite the fact he apparently hates them. They're apparently certain that he won't redistribute THEIR wealth.

Sure, but rest assured Obama's voters won't EVER do that.
Say something like that to any progressive and you'll get sputtering and eye rolls and maybe an "Oh Jesus!" You will be labeled a paranoid fool. But as I watch what's going on, it just seems to me we're getting further and further into the weeds. And it's happening so quickly that I'm afraid I might live to see it. (I've been here 12 years less than you have.)
Next you'll be talking about privatizing Social Security!! Heretic!!
Galileo was dramatically persecuted by the church in the 1600's for his scientific and astronomical beliefs (how DARE he say the Earth is round?!!!), which kept science and truth from advancing for many years thereafter. Sadly, we don't remember the names of those who persecuted him. (But they did it despite the fact that huge government grants had not yet been invented!!) If the climate alarmists have done nothing else, they've turned the word "scientists" into a joke. Congrats, alarmists!
I hope you're wealthy enough to afford lots of plastic surgery. And from what I've read in your comments, you do not possess an overabundance of good manners. You just resent a gently humorous attack on one of your buds.

Perhaps not, if the vote were held today. But if Mitch keeps opening his big mouth....
