    x% = m (middle class professional)

    m – taxes, bills, etc = n (not much)

    m/n = please don’t quit your day job, because people like you are the folks who are keeping the economy afloat!

    Well said.

    You are, for now, whether you like it or not, a 53%er. By this post, are you implying that those in the 53% do not care about other people? Otherwise I can’t imagine why what you’ve written there makes you any different.

      Nope, there is no implication of that. There is no evil in the photo but what people bring to it.🙂

    The national debt is by far the biggest problem we face as a nation. Those who truly “care about people” are making that their top priority, as it threatens to bring the whole country down.

      Debt is a major problem-which is why I have been consistently in favor of fiscal conservatism. We should only spend more than we take in when it must be done (such as a war threatening our survival or when the alternative is economic collapse). Too much debt is one way to kill an empire.

    Trying to find the post where I predicted Obama would be a one-termer. Probably back in ’09. You said you’d by me a beer, Mike, if he lost. I think you’re gonna owe me.

    And further more, a Democratic leaning pollster who worked for B. Clinton says “Danger, Danger”…

      What? Mike said they were protesting against the exact same things Greece did to get itself into trouble.

      Yup. These people are part of the reason we can’t move forward. They haven’t a clue how the world works. What do you have to say to these people, Mike? Are they wrong?

      • Michael LaBossiere said, on October 23, 2011 at 6:43 pm

        Which people? I can’t tell from the comment.

        • WTP said, on October 23, 2011 at 7:46 pm

          Because you are obtuse. Obviously, it’s the supporters of socialism. Certainly not the Russian guy who lived under it (“it” being socialism) for however many years.

    • T. J. Babson said, on October 23, 2011 at 11:22 am

      The happy Russian!

      Seems like a perfectly balanced analysis. I’d expect nothing less from ABC.

      How did the Tea Party, whose spiritual leader is Ron Paul, go from being about lowering government spending, to being depicted the way it is depicted? Does the left fear Ron Paul?
