You should be grateful that people risked their capital to create all the products and businesses necessary to provide you with the means by which you are able to earn a living, and they should be grateful for employees who work hard, develop specialized skills, and add value to their endeavors helping them realize a return on their investments.

Which industry in this example produces more capital and more jobs - earthmoving equipment manufacturers or shovel manufacturers? To only see that fewer men with shovels are required due to the use of the earthmoving equipment is to be very shortsighted. Productivity is the key to building wealth. And wealth builds jobs. Gov't by its nature is inclined to steal wealth from the productive.
The world should not belong to those who slander the god-boy Kim Jong-un.
"We need to be outraged when local law enforcement and the justice system repeatedly allow young, unarmed black men to encounter police and then wind up dead with no consequences."--William Lacy Clay, Jr. D-MO We need to be outraged when cowardly members of Congress repeatedly lie from the pulpits of Christ's church on behalf of a thug who robbed a store, assaulted the store clerk, assaulted a police officer, attempted to take the police officer's gun and then charged the officer. These congressmen use those lies for self-serving purposes in the name of a real and courageous reformer, MLK. They are a disgrace to their ancestors, to their families, to the communities the represent, and to the nation. Oh, and Congressman Clay, there were consequences. More people died, communities burned and became less safe in part because your solicitous deceit emboldens more lawlessness.

Highlights of Obama plan to tax wealthy

"Eliminate a tax break on inheritances. The White House says the provision costs the government hundreds of billions of dollars in annual tax revenue." It's a liberal fantasy that all income belongs to government and we should be grateful that they let us have any of it.

And they keep hoping that by contributing to his fund raising they'll be spared from IRS investigations.

When calculating all the booty he fantasizes will be filling his gov't coffers as a result of his lust to penalize the productive segment of society, Obama and his ilk always misjudge how creative productive people can be when it comes to finding ways around new punitive taxes.

I have done business in Santa Barbara the last few years and I'm always struck by the large number of middle-aged juveniles I see when I'm there. It seems an unusually large segment of Santa Barbara's population sees it as a Neverland where they'll never have to grow up.
No doubt next on Holder's target list will be Barney Frank and the rest of the Democrat lawmakers who maliciously mucked up lending laws in order to buy votes by requiring lending institutions to offer cheap easy mortgages to people they knew couldn't afford them. I'm sure we can bank on it.
That very same thought struck me when I opened Townhall.com today and was greeted once again by numerous solicitous ads full of lies and deceit. Too bad we have to wade through so much effluent when visiting this and numerous otherwise good websites.
