A local attorney make 33 times more per hour than a local burger flipper...what a social injustice!
Ive found that the harder I work the luckier I get!
President Obama started the class warfare by saying things like "We are going to ask the wealthiest Americans to make a big sacrifice. We are going to raise their taxes and ask them to pay their fair share."
If it were not meant to be class warfare he could have said "We are going to ask the wealthiest Americans to make a big sacrifice. Even though they have already paid more that their fair share we will ask them to pay a higher tax rate..."
The first statement was divisive while the hypothetical second statement would have appealed the the patriotism of our citizenry and pulled the country together
Dusty please define the poor. If the rich are the top 1% who are the poor in your mind? Is it the bottom 20%? or what?
John Marcum if you truly want to help then you start by doing two things
Do not engage or participate in costly legal action against the Village with regard to any of the issues surrounding the recent election. Village residents spoke loud and clear in the overwhelming support for your opponent and her agenda.
You stated that you found an analyst that would help the Village asses the Village Green for development at a cost of only $20,000. Compared to the $100,000 the current council has been quoted this sounds like a good deal. Please reveal the name of this group so a cost effective historical review can be considered before any changes to the Village Green take place.
The President was probably just joking
Yes a total waste of time to vote on this but i guess Obama didn't get the memo
Backpedaling? You mean like saying "Oh, that was just a joke" when an overconfident statement turns out to be wrong.
"As an American, I am not so shocked that Obama was given the Nobel Peace Prize without any accomplishments to his name. America gave him the White House, based on the same credentials."
Dusty- you made a cheeky statement about Obamacare. It doesn't mean I thought you would really cancel your auto insurance. It also doesn't make your statement a joke. You have now made a brash statement about Newt and I hope you will eat your words again. Since you are getting a vocabulary lesson, from a big dummy like me, can you think of another word for a donkey? Now that is a shoe that might fit one of us.
