      The Top 1 Percent Are Taking In More Of The Nation’s Income Than At Any Other Time Since The 1920s: Not only are the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans taking home a tremendous portion of the national income, but their share of this income is greater than at any other time since the Great Depression, as the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities illustrates in this chart using 2007 data:

      The real reason why Super Rich hate Obama: He's calling them out on fairness, so they call him a socialist. As you can see, the Income Differential between 1923-1929 (pre-Great Depression) is similar to how it was 2002-2007 (pre-Great Recession). Our country flourishes best when the Middle Class grows at a similar rate to the elite class. Republicans have pledged to make this income inequality greater & to further lower taxes on the super rich, & raise taxes on the already weakened middle class.

    This is Sharia. Choosing to ignore this is behaving just like those who ignored the holocaust or who ignored slavery. The Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law need to be stopped.

    There are MANY things I don't agree w/ the Left on and SOME things I don't agree w/ the Right on but still... Freedom of Speech for ALL!

    Today a distant relative of mine posted a link from the Tea Party's FB page. I guess it was the same thing that makes me a horror movie fan that made me decide to follow the link to the page. We are ALL subject to the confirmation bias, seeking out information that confirms our beliefs; but most of us also try to balance what we want to be true with what IS true. Tea Partiers are at the other end of that scale to a frightening degree, warping even articles and studies that are already slanted i…

    The Real Reason Sodium Fluoride is Still Added to Almost of Municipal Water Supplies - Must-Read! Perhaps it's not my imagination that I've lost IQ points since moving into the city and losing my well water (and evening margarita). When I lived here years ago, I had an expensive reverse osmosis system, but can no longer afford one - and I have a 5 year old to protect! Are there any safe & inexpensive water purifiers with scientific proof showing they eliminate flouride? Comments welcome!!!

    Key provisions of the Patriot Act are expiring, including what the NSA exploits to collect data about every phone call we make. We need an expiration date on this unconstitutional surveillance. Tell Congress to vote against Patriot Act provisions that don't explicitly ban mass surveillance!

    Or the $60 dollars for an aspirin or the $2300 dollars for an MRI that costs $189 dollars in other countries. This is the other problem with healthcare, out of control price gouging. We need government controls like they have in most other countries. that's the truth!!!! I'm in medical sales!!!!!!
