We have entered a new phase of the endless Occupy Wall Street sleepover. Not working is hard work.
It’s about time the rich started paying their fair share, according to the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters. Those fat cats aren’t chipping in as much as the less fortunate. When are they going to start spreading their wealth around?
Last week, protests broke out again in Europe, from Rome to London. The monthlong Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in New York have spread. The current unrest follows this summer's riots in London and flash mob incidents in U.S. cities. In 2009 and 2010, Tea Parties turned out hundreds of thousands in protests against the Obama administration's policies and eventually gave him the largest midterm rebuke since 1938.
At a time when the American left is beating its war drums to raise taxes on "the rich", Herman Cain wants to slash their income tax rates to 9 percent.
If being a millionaire still appeals to you, here's good news -- Michael Ellsberg has just published a new book, "The Education of Millionaires," which promises to make any numbskull ridiculously rich, even if the numbskull in question didn't go to college
Herman Cain is in the lead. Can’t believe all the racists in the Republican Party that prefer him.

President Barack Obama obviously is scrambling in his attempt to win re-election. He has proclaimed himself the underdog and has given up his pretense of being a pragmatic centrist compromiser in favor of harsh class warfare rhetoric.
Mr. WELCH: I want to take this administration out. They don't understand how to create jobs. They don't understand to grow this--America is on fire. America is still the greatest country in the world. And we have everything going for us except a government that is not supportive of capitalism.
This week the media discovered that the smell emanating from lower Manhattan was not a broken sewer line with a hint of patchouli and marijuana but was, in fact, body odor from a left-wing protest...with a hint of patchouli and marijuana.
His anti-capitalist nostrums are demoralizing to the economy.
This tax attack is the latest assault from a White House that is making a sharp populist shift to the left. It coincides with a president who trashed the Bank of America for raising debit-card fees in response to a Dodd-Frank price-control edict, and who suggests that banks do not have an inherent right to profit. It’s in league with a president who is throwing in with the Wall Street protesters.
