    I've seen lots of people make a living without a boss, but I've never seen a boss make anything without someone else doing all the work.

    When was the last time you complemented your boss for being smarter and better than you - and acknowledging that's why he makes more money than you do?

    The entire conservative theory of Money follows hard work is completely busted. Money follows a lot of things but hard work isn't it or I would have been rich when I was young and poor now that I have an easier desk job.

    "I'm still wondering how all the "workers" in America think that if we strangle the "rich" who are the ones who usually create jobs how they think that is going to help America."


    The rich aren't the real job creators.

    The job creators are the working classes. When they are able to have enough purchasing power to buy things, jobs are created. When they don't, jobs are lost and the economy stagnates.

    We've now seen a decade of rich people earning record profits and we've seen the worst job creation decade in almost 100 years.

    Uhh...Liberal Larry, many of the "American" cars you see are made of components manufactured in Mexico and China. Some of the Japanese cars are more "American" than the "domestic" cars so what is your point?

    I wonder if Mitt showed the President his new car? According to the web site "Laist":

    "The son of Detroit was spotted driving a new black Audi Q7, a luxury sport-utility vehicle manufactured in Slovakia."

    I guess Romney is giving a little pay back to the industrial midwest.

    I'm still wondering how all the "workers" in America think that if we strangle the "rich" who are the ones who usually create jobs how they think that is going to help America.

    If the "rich" were not excited about risking their capital over the past 4 years then what makes you think that they are going to change their mind now?

    It is not going to happen. Which makes the "workers" more dependent on the government.

    Nice one America. Thanks for being so selfish that your reverse Pride hurt us all.

    Romney: Let's tax your employer, the dynastic banking families who make a percentage on all federal government debt, they are the truly rich.
    Pres: Well, I would but I am indebted to them. They just love Marxist philosophers like me and can control the mainstream media in my favor.
    Romney: Oh, I see now. But can we at least tax at 99%rate, the wall street bankers who float the bonds and make a percentage on all big government debt.
    Pres: That would get me in the same trouble that Kennedy found himself in when he attempted to eliminate the federal reserve and print currency as US bank notes.... You know what happened in Dallas right?
    Romney: Oh, well then you had better not put yourself in harms way. But I sure feel bad that your path will create a collectivist government and we will lose our Constitutional Republic. ...Who's idea was this left-over thanksgiving turkey anyway.
    Pres: It wasn't me, although I did see Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid with chefs hats on when I passed by the kitchen.

    "blah blah blah" funny funny funny. If this dialogue ever occurred it would have included "Mr Romney you made millions during your career, indeed, during a period of much higher tax rates on the wealthy. Why do you therefore object to a modest increase in taxes for the top two percent. Their share of American wealth is expanding. The disparity of income between the top two percent and the working middle class is widening dramatically. Where is your true patriotism? If you love this country you will love workers as much as businesses.
