    There's nothing wrong with this picture. Those who are fortunate enough to have wealth don't owe you or anyone else a living. If you don't like unemployment vote for the presidential candidate who has proven he can balance a checkbook.

    I read in the USA Today this morning that the BO compaign still holds a 6-1 advantage over the Romney campaign in cash, regardless of what the super-pacs have.

    One of the most important points from this reporting period is this. President Obama's campaign spent 15 million dollars more than they took in during May! More Deficit spending. His fast burn rate is due to running 6 times the ads that the Romney campaign ran. As a result the Obama campaign slowed the falling poll numbers. But they still fell.

    Millions, perhaps even over a Billion will be spent on campaigns for politicians to get/retain their jobs; meanwhile, people are starving and losing their homes. There's something wrong with this picture.
