    Fitzy please inform us of what facts we have wrong?

    Matthew, Did you calculate that percentage yourself? For 2011, it comes out at 50% make under $50,000 and 25% under $25,000. Now this includes teenage workers, college students and the retired.
    Also I didn’t say that divorce and single wage earners were the only cause of the growing difference between the “have” and “have nots” It coupled with the large number of retires in a country make it appear that in the last 10 years, the salary gap has grew greatly.

    The good news is that the dems no longer need the right wing House to do anything. The economy is recovering nicely, slower because of the GOP obstruction…but the GOP has become IRRELEVANT. AND future elections will go to the dems…How does it feel to be irrelevant?

    And get a load of the freaks appearing to the CPAC comedy convention–it’s really embarrassing for the GOP..the moderates are cringing…..

    “The treasury has nothing to do with any thing.”

    Thank you for proving to all just how stupid you are

  • Cathy

    Fitz, Obama is for death panels.

    As for ab0rtion and the death penalty. So, it’s better to murder an innocence unborn child and keep a serial killer alive (knowing that as long as he is alive it is possible for him to kill again.) The democrat position.

    Then to let the innocence unborn child live and rid the world of a person that will kill again if given the chance. The republican position.

  • Matthew

    Matthew, Did you calculate that percentage yourself?


    For 2011, it comes out at 50% make under $50,000 and 25% under $25,000.

    Based on whose figures? Are you mixing up household income and individual income?

  • Van

    I have only one question for the Loony Left. Do you guys run your home budget like Obama runs the United States budget? Oh yeah, he has NEVER ran a budget. NEVER! Not in Chicago or as a Senator. I am waiting for an answer……it’s a yes or no question

  • Bsotgnw

    Always wondered why libs were for killing inocent babies but keeping convicted killers alive. When we are importing babies from othe countries and keeping killers in prison runs up to a quarter of a million a year all in!

  • Mark2

    @Cathy “Yep Maddow took the demo but get killed in total viewers.”

    Come on rookie, you and I both know that the 25-54 key demo is the only thing that matters.

  • usa8888

    BS–“treasury bond yields.” not “treasury”……you must read carefully….

  • Bsotgnw


    30 year mortages is based off or treasuries (yields) DUMB ASS

    I’m glad to see you back from your Black Hole vacation :-)

    *US to Beef Up Missile Defense After North Korean Threats, Sources Say

    It’s getting kind of tense over there boys and girls

  • usa8888

    BS–so What? Means NOTHING!!

  • Coffee Steve

    *Washington Times to start a cable news network…

    Herring Broadcasting, owner of the Wealth TV network, and The Washington Times announced Thursday that they have joined in a strategic partnership to create a new national cable news network called One America News, set to debut nationwide this summer.

    The intent is to provide credible news and thoughtful analysis for “viewers with self-described independent, conservative and libertarian values,” Mr. Herring said. “Fox News has done a great job serving the center-right and independent audiences. But those who consider themselves liberal have a half dozen or more choices on TV each day from which to get their news,” he said.

  • usa8888

    Bs–your points are worthless, as I indicated. Go back and re-read them (mine)and take some finance courses while you are at it…..
    You and the right wing are pusing water uphill. You and your backward party are DONE……Irrelevant!!!!!!!!!!

  • TZCA


    You said “30 year mortages is based off or treasuries (yields).”

    This factual statement requires tiered level thought that the resident TROLL is incapable of thinking.

    The resident TROLL is only capable of regurgitating HuffPo and MSNBC talking points; single tiered thought such as when I poop it stinks, therefore poop must stink. Even if that link is too complicated, then the TROLL will should be able to regurgitate Democrat good, Republican bad, ooga booga.

    Kudos for trying though.

  • Coffee Steve

    A Local Liberal on the City Board stood up tonight and wanted to bring up a ordinance to ban Candy for Easter this year. If you could gave heard the dead silence and everyone looking at her in total shock you honestly would have checked for brain waves coming from her, this is the same lady that wanted to have a tax paid for every tree on peoples property.

    Next she will propose a flush tax and you’ll have to pay a tax every time you flush and the potty will have a flush meter installed :twisted:

    You asked a few days ago about solar/wind and cost. I had little to say about cost (and still do have little to say). But in my rattlings of solar-electric and wind farms, I totally forgot about solar-thermal. I came across some project documents on Ivanpah Project in southern California. Basically, it uses acres of mirrors directed toward a boiler located atop a large tower, in which water is boiled to drive the turbines of a generator. A pricey project however, but could be a viable long term solution. I read some project reports that environmentalists are currently studying the impact on desert tortoises.

    I have a solution to the tortoises, Turtle Soup :-) No more Tortoises problems
