so incredibly awesome! Holy sweeping generalizations Batman!

You really have no idea, do you.

I'd bet $1M that I am 10x more successful than youve ever been at any age in your entire life and Im just under 40.

yep, a successful Democrat that has never had a handout in his life and has never expected one.

Eu contraire mon frair, I do have an idea. I said that because I knew that comment would get under your skin/tick you off a bit. Kinda feels good, don't it?!?

I find it interesting that you support the current administration, and their attempt to redistribute wealth through higher taxes and programs like Obamacare, yet you bristle at the thought of somebody making a comment about you being dependent on somebody/thing...be it your parents or the gov't or whatever. I don't think you are as calm and collected you as you claim to be and are proud of your success...which is exactly as you should be.

So, if you are truely as successful as you claim to be, explain to me why you are OK with...no...why you want...the federal government taking more than they already take and give it to others...give it to those who have not worked even 1/10th as hard as you have to get where you are today...through forced redistribution of wealth (ie, higher mandates/taxes). Explain to me why you want even more gov't intervention in your life. Explain to me why you want the freedoms you enjoy today to be infringed upon by the gov't you pay to run. Explain to me why you want the gov't to be running more of your life than it is today.

If you are truely as successful as you claim to be, you should NOT want our government infringing on that success, and should be fighting to keep more of what is yours. I mean, if you really don't think the gov't takes enough of what is yours already...maybe your success makes you feel a bit guilty, I dunno...you can write a check to the US Treasury. If that makes you feel better...then by all means...feel free.

Other than your own personal observations, on what exactly do you base such an opinion? Very few of the "old people" that I know exhibit anything close to the anger that was in great evidence during the various occupy movements or at any La Raza gathering or any speech by a union leader or by the people hired to teach our children when they walked off their jobs in Wisconsin last year. Arthur Godfrey had a favorite saying that has stayed with me: "We grow too soon old, and too late smart."

The infamous Willie Sutton said it best when asked why he robbed banks: "Because that's where the money is!" However, neither he nor any other bank robber throughout history has been even remotely close to being as big a public enemy as are the banksters. We don't just need to audit the Fed, we need to eliminate it (as we've done four times previously in our history)!!

Thank you for your usual inane response and...what's wrong with Denny's...?...I like their breakfasts.

And, as usual, you side-step direction questions. You claim, quite proudly I might add, to be a successful person "that has never had a handout in his life and has never expected one", as if you think everybody should be just like you...you know, work hard and be successful...which is what made this country great.

Yet you support this administration...that has made no bones about the fact they support forced redistribution of wealth through taxation and programs, like Obamacare, that redistribute wealth...ie...take money away from a successful person like you...and provide handouts to others...which takes money out of your pocket, away from you and diminishes your ability to support your family and save for the future...it makes no sense.

Do you like people taking away what is yours? If somebody came up to you in the street and asked you to give them your wallet, would you comply without so much as an argument? That is pretty much what you are saying...by supporting the current administration...it's OK if strangers come and take what is yours...and you are happy to give it.

If that is the case, I'll PM you my address and you can write out a check to me as large as your checking account will support. Heck, I'll take it! Of course, if I win the Powerball tonight, I won't need it...

Re: Vote em out!

“If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty you have no brain.”
Sir Winston Churchill (a better man than anyone presently in our government)

It's gonna be entertaining to watch Manida make the transition when he finally realizes just how badly the liberals are screwing him and how desperate they are to take away all that he's worked for.

btw, there is no question that a lot of seniors are mad as hell and who wouldn't be when much (all in many cases) of what they've worked decades for is stolen from them by the crooks in Washington and on Wall Street?

Anyone care to research how many businesses fail? I DO own my business, small but successful at that. I've seen more morons run their companies in to the ground than I can remember. I sure wouldn't want them making decisions about big policy, economic or otherwise. This modern idea that all we need to do to run government better is put a bunch of business folks at the helm is idiotic. Put the best decision makers in place.
