I would like to know how many people on this site

consider themselves Liberals , ? and if so how do you live your lives on a daily basis to support that? Please don't blast me because I don't fit in , just answer the question !

The Wealthy hoard money- Thom Hartman

The Wealthy hoard money, while holding the middle class hostage

The heirs of the Wal Mart fortune – the Walton family – have gotten a lot wealthier since the Bush recession began in 2007, while the rest of us have gotten a lot poorer. According to data from the Federal Reserve, median family wealth in America dropped by nearly 40% between 2007 and 2010. But, during that same, the wealth of the Walton family increased 22% to nearly $90 billion.

So now, the six Walton heirs have more wealth than 48 million American families – or more than 41% of all American families – COMBINED. And yet, despite the incredible wealth disparity – Republicans in Congress are pushing for even more tax breaks for the Wal Mart heirs – and other millionaires and billionaires who fund Republican candidates.

This is a make-or-break moment for the American middle class, as Democrats try to extend tax cuts for working Americans, while cutting them off for the Walton heirs. We’ll see if Republicans go along with this common sense solution, or if they hold the middle class hostage so that their billionaire buddies can hoard even more wealth. Stay tuned.

It's too late if they (our-laws) offer the opportunity for that mistake to be made again -too late

most will make the same mistake (sad to say it really is a numbers game and most scientific numbers don't lie)) and another life is possibly ruined . Way too little too late, way too late!! If you can hurt another that badly I don't think you should have another chance to walk the street free ever.I am not talking about teenagers who post stupid naked pics on line and or even give each other blow jobs, so please don't. If we give you another chance it is at the risk of innocent others , you can choose the risk you want to support.The one who has already hurt and may Not Again , or the one that might be hurt and is innocent-you choose. Give the one who hurts others another chance, or protect the innocent ones who don't see anything like that awful, possibly life altering experience coming before They become a victim. You can choose where your support lies..It may not be fair, but life really isn't fair, is it? I choose the one that hasn't been hurt yet. Rapist rarely stop raping, pedophiles rarely stop until they're very old and sorry to say but not interest in sex and or can't get hard anymore. If i could start a movement a pedophile would never walk down the street again, nu ff said.
