    Talk about jumping to conclusions DemNow.  Your post was laden with prejudice against the mainstream GOP.
    Stereotyping because of a few extremist remains the staple of the Democrat playbook.  Does the lying, 
    exaggerating, and hate ever get tiring?  I realize Democrats are getting desperate as the election nears, but
    please try to contain yourself.

    However, since you are so obsessed with thuggery and true colors, look no further than the President you so
    admire.  The President for whom you are willing to fall on a sword.  The President whom you probably strolled
    to the polls and help vote into power four years ago, acting much like a naive lamb on the way to the slaughter.

    True Colors?  Obama is the dude who flapped his jaws prematurely against the Cambridge Police in the Gates
    arrest.  He's the guy who sat in the pew during Wright's condemning sermons.   Your President is the possessor
    of a character association with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers.  So do not lecture anyone about thuggery until you
    admit that the President himself has practiced bigotry on a grand scale.

    The History of the United States is littered, unfortunately, with slavery and white supremacy.  But to act as if no progress
    has been made, and continues to be made, is an outrage.  As a nation we have come so far, that hate mongering such
    as yours threatens to set us back 100 years.  Think before writing.  

    Marco Rubio is coming on, I've gotta go.

    A lot of criticism of European colonialism, especially by the British.  Mentions more than once the act of President Obama returning
    the bust of Winston Churchill to the British government.  Dedicates a lot of time to the President being heavily influenced by Barack Sr, even though
    father and son spent little time together.  Herein expresses believe that the President harbors silent rage towards Britain, and Europe in general,
    over his father's experience growing up in colonial Kenya. This in turn causes author to express belief that Obama wants to enact a new world
    order that would shift traditional power and wealth away from the US and Europe towards the third world, while allowing Islamic Nations (i.e. Iran) to
    achieve nuclear weapons parity with the West.  Very critical of the President's administration having driven up the debt the past 3 years, and leads the
    viewer to believe that it is a deliberate attempt by Obama to throw our nation into financial ruin and be at the mercy of our creditors.  Predicts
    a financial collapse of epic proportions if Obama is re-elected with the debt continuing to climb.  Further addresses things we recall from the 2008
    campaign' such as Obama's mother's socialist activism, and the President's negative character associations while in Hawaii, going to college, and
    after he moved to Chicago.  I think it is worth a second peek, and I am going with my son again tomorrow.  I suggest all of you check it out.

    I just returned from viewing "2016: Obama's America" at my local theater.  Anyone else
    seen it?

    Schmidt:  you and I have disagreed on most issues, but I am glad to see you continue to post.  I presume that means you and your
    property has been spared by the wildfires sweeping the eastern slope of the Colorado Rockies.  I hope the homes of your family and
    any friends have been spared too.  Prayers and best wishes for your community.

    Why hasn't Eric Holder resigned by now?  And why, if President Obama ran a campaign promising transparency, won't the White House release records on Fast and Furious?

    Raising the minimum wage is basically a dog chasing its own tail.  The increase in labor costs will simply be passed along to a corporation's customers.  Please you Liberals, give me something I can use!  Your graphs, surveys, and attachments are putting me to sleep!  They are simply the propaganda of a bunch of think tank elites living off the tax payer dollar in our over tuitioned Universities, most of whom have never had to make a payroll or work at a real job.

    Yeah, he's a fellow alum of mine from USD.  Never had the pleasure of meeting Thune personally, but friends I have back in SD say he's squeaky clean and is very small town.  He has worked hard for his home state.  Already know I'm voting Romney in November, but I would really like Thune on the ticket.

    I'm going to let Liberal/Progressives in on a little secret.

    Unless Obamacare is ruled unconstitutional, or unless it is repealed; there can be no wage growth.

    We will not be able to grow this economy if all businesses (small to large) end up being required to provide a health care plan that is too massive and over regulated to be successfully sustained.  Businesses are not hiring at this time because the future of Obamacare hangs in the balance.  No business, as I write this, can make P & L projections because of Obamacare. 

    Wage inflation would be welcomed by the Conservative community.  It's Obama and his socialistic policies need to be piled upon the ash heap of American History.

    Schmidt, the Eisenbrey & Gordon graph is interesting, but it doesn't address the other
    dynamics that occurred during the final six decades of the twentieth century that also
    contributed to the decline in union membership.  Among these would be the largest post-WWI immigration that began in the 1970's from Mexico and Latin America, closely
    followed by immigration from SE Asia after Vietnam.  With Europe and Japan rebuilding for two decades after WWII, American labor had little global competition for the production of durable goods.  As we know, this changed once Japan and Germany began to export more steel, automobiles, electronics, and later become powerhouses in the technology arena.  Also a longer life expectancy for seniors in the US has created a greater need for service sector, entry level jobs that all too typically have never been unionized.

    I thought that lately the complaint has been with how much reported income the top 1% earns, now it's the top 10%?  What is next?  The top 20%?  30%?  51%?
