Should have posted this link in this thread:

Jon Stewart exposes Mitt Romney lies and Fox (Chaos on Bullshit Mountain) - YouTube

Funny - but more serious after 6min point.

That's hilarious!! Nobody gets to the truth better than comedians.. If its not true, it wouldn't be funny... Love Stewart and Colbert..

The funny thing is I actually like both Romney and O'reilly as they both appear to be smart, able and decent guys.. but why complain about entitlement programs during recessionary times? Its like saying "I can't believe people are taking hand outs during economic hardships when jobs are scarce.. why aren't they getting a job?" That's an oxymoron.. When the economy is good, nobody ever talks about it and that's when it makes the most sense.. When jobs are plenty and you're not working, it makes a better case but nobody cares then..

Europe prior to the French Revolution was a 3'rd world country by today's standards.. What's the difference between then and now? The small elite aristocrats with a mass under class that barely gets by.. Is that the kind of society we want to move towards?

The US is not going down from overwhelmed social services weighing down our economy, its just that we now have global economic competition when we did not in the past. The US was about to enter a big recession when WW2 took us out. After WW2, Europe and Japan was destroyed and India and China did not exist.. The US supplied the world in everything without competition.. Jobs were plentiful and all you need is a HS education so the baby boomers naturally prospered in that environment.. Now that Europe has rebuilt its economy to compete with the US, and India has entered the world workforce due to the internet/and they speak English, and China has opened up its labor market, we wonder why the US is not booming financially as it did in the past and blame it on social programs.. That's way off.. The US is accustomed to a very high standard of living and now have to get used to the idea that salaries around the world will look to equalize.. That adjustment may be painful but hard to avoid.. The main blame goes to the development of a global internet infrastructure, globalization and the rapid progress of India, China and Europe.. Those are all good things but naturally this will impact the US.. Many of us feel we are upper class because we trade for a living but in reality, most of us here are just hard working blue collar guys trying to make a buck in the market.. I consider trading to be blue collar work though its fun and we can make a good living.. We're nowhere near the 1% that are supposedly carrying such a big tax burden.. If you're a good trader and you're smart, you'll start trading in your IRA account..

Art Cashin And Dick Fisher Expose The Farce That America's Corrupt And Bought Congress Has Become

Art Cashin And Dick Fisher Expose The Farce That America's Corrupt And Bought Congress Has Become | ZeroHedge


Since 1879, every chapel service at the Naval Academy concludes with a hymn that contains the following plea: “O hear us when we cry for Thee, for those in peril on the sea.” We cry for a nation that is in peril on the blustery seas of the economy. Our people are drowning in unemployment; our government is drowning in debt. You—the citizens and voters sitting in this room and elsewhere—are ultimately in command of the fleet that sails under the flag of the United States Congress. Demand that it performs its duty.

Just recently, in a hearing before the Senate, your senator and my Harvard classmate, Chuck Schumer, told Chairman Bernanke, “You are the only game in town.” I thought the chairman showed admirable restraint in his response. I would have immediately answered, “No, senator, you and your colleagues are the only game in town. For you and your colleagues, Democrat and Republican alike, have encumbered our nation with debt, sold our children down the river and sorely failed our nation. Sober up. Get your act together. Illegitimum non carborundum; get on with it. Sacrifice your political ambition for the good of our country—for the good of our children and grandchildren. For unless you do so, all the monetary policy accommodation the Federal Reserve can muster will be for naught.”

What's also interesting is that many politicians are getting rich off a politician's salary.. That's another characteristic of 3'rd world countries.. greasing each other's hands and returning favors.. Like the tax collectors in bible times that used to get rich off a tax collector's salary so I believe in smaller government but social services should be encouraged not discouraged.. Much of my family on both sides of my parents are part of that 1% and have been for some time.. they may complain but taxes don't impact their lifestyle..

Latest data: Unemployment has ticked up in half of states, but it's mostly among 47% Romney says he doesn't worry about.

I know I think Bill Clinton is worth 80 million. I am not sure he was even a millionaire when entered office. Why doesn't he give say 78 million to others or directly to the government since he is supporting Obama's redistribution campaign? He could still be a millionaire and would be showing how much he believes in the liberal message. I think his daughters wedding was estimated to cost 3 to 5 million. Champion for the poor and middle class. Hardly.

I would also say another characteristic of third world countries is government intrusion and attempted wealth redistribution. Of course the government redistribution does not work and the people in third world countries still stay poor because no jobs. Proving that these kinds of policies do not work. Venezuela and Cuba make good poster childs for the runaway success of redistribution government.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

If Clinton made most of that $$ after his office, that's not the same as making that fortune during office, which would be a conflict of interest.. I would love to be the toilet seat maker that sells the government $1000 toilet seats and don't mind kicking some back to the politician that granted me that contract.. That's the type of characteristics that are rife in 3'rd world countries.. I don't have anything against the wealthy spending their money in any way they like and if they want to splurge on their daughter's wedding, I'm all for it.. I'd do the same.. Clinton is involved with many social services and likely in philanthropy as well.. There are plenty of super wealthy people (we have more super wealthy now than any time in history) that don't engage in any form of philanthropy but want more.. Are those characteristics admirable? Those types of characteristics usually comes along with some other less than admirable characteristics as well.. If the wealthy complain about taxes, engage in philanthropy thru a non-profit.. We come into the world with nothing and we will leave with nothing.. Take care of your family and do something with your money that makes an impact, which is usually spent on people and not things.. Re-distribution is not the intent but nation building and the advancement of society is.. That's the government's job.. Just because they try don't mean they succeed, but cant blame countries for trying.. As long as the effort don't hinder upward mobility, its justified.. history has tried a lot of stuff, we have a lot of frame of reference to refer to..

Without some social safety net, society will develop chaos and anarchy.. Mad MAx beyond thunderdom.. Road Warrior...ha

Come on man, Really? If you are gonna contribute to the conversation, contribute something worthwhile. You've made some excellent points so far, but this statement is not worth the time you took to write it down. Don't mean to single you out, there's been a lot of these types of statements made by others as well that really serve no purpose.
