The ironies in this post include the presumptions that there is validity to the mythological "1%" who benefits without risk; that there are 98% who "produce" all the income (which would indicate that the 1% produces only 2% of all the income); and claiming that the study of Russian (i assume he means Soviet Union) literature would teach you how to destroy a republic when the very demands of the OWS movement that spawned the illusion of the mythological 1%, mirrored almost verbatim both the US Green Party Platform and Marx's and Engles’ Communist Manifesto.

Here's an idea wes174, make your New Year’s Resolution to read a couple history books about the topics you speak of, so you don’t sound like such a silly boob.

HAVING FOUGHT A WAR FOR MY COUNTRY AND HAVING A SON WHO HAS AND IS PRESENTLY I CONSIDER MYSELF A PATRIOT, MY HAVING A PHD IN ECONOMICS WILL PROBABLY NOT IMPRESS YOU ...AS YOUR OPINIONS ARE MORE VALID THAN FACTS...BUT HISTORY PROVES WHAT YOU DENY. Even though you renounce it history proves that without the progressive tax structure and unions you decry...America was in the industrial age a carbon copy of GB where 12 yo children worked for a few cents a day in 12 hour shifts. PLEASE READ HISTORY WHILE LEAVING YOUR OPINIONS BEHIND>>>IT IS AMAZING WHAT YOU MIGHT LEARN
PS I AM STLL A CONSERVATIVE

Peas are all the rage when it comes to talking about the country’s fiscal woes.

You might remember that in July of 2011, when fighting over the debt ceiling, president Obama- right before he left for his 17th vacation at Martha’s Vineyard that year- complained about congressional inaction by saying that’s it time for the country “to eat its peas.”

From CBSNews:

"I've been hearing from my Republican friends for some time it is a moral imperative to tackle our debt and deficits in a serious way," Mr. Obama said. "What I've said to them is, let's go."

The president...
