“Could someone please tell me how many of the 1% are Democrats?”

“41 percent identify themselves as independents, while 33 percent say they are Republicans and 26 percent are Democrats. The 99 percent of the population is also mostly independents, consisting of 39 percent of independents, 28 percent of Republicans and 33 percent of Democrats.
“Hey, why hire someone for eight hours a day when you can pay the thre guys already working for you time and a half for two extra hours a day? Come out much cheaper especially with the new mandated health care costs.”

“Corporate profits are the highest in US history.
Only 2% of big companies are affected by the ACA.
And, all businesses w/ 50 or less employees are exempt.”
“No. It is observation of the facts. Clear the mud from your eyes and see the world as it actually is. Personal reponsibility makes the successful succeed, not handouts. Those who opt not to better themselves and sit back and accept handouts for doing nothing will be and are contributing to the downfall of society. Those with your views only enable them to continue. Hate is not allowing people to be responsible for themselves.”

“No one can force these people to buy food just as no one can force them not to buy alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, lottery tickets, cell phones, cable tv, etc., etc., etc....”

“Yes, we know... In your world all the poor are on drugs and stealing your taxes. It must be wonderful to have such a simplistic and bigoted assessment of people in trouble. I bet you even call yourself a Christian. I keep wondering though, does such an assessment come from Hate of your fellow man, just pure personal greed, or is it a total and willful lack of an understanding of reality?”
“Look, the market isn't going to crash. Most stock is held by the wealthy and by the corporations themselves via the buy backs. These two groups, whom most think are Republicans but in actuality are neither Republicans or Democrats, will not allow the market to crash until they decide to sell off their holdings, reap the cash then buy up all the stock again after the crash.
These rich never lose and are beholden to neither political party but use both as needed.”

“It can crash, if Obama is the one holding it up. I read he is doing just that. This where why we should shout from the roof top the warning signs, because we think this country can't fail. Look at what this administration is doing to this country. We must change the direction this country is heading. It will take Americans waking up....Do you want Jobs, and a robust economy? Then we must change who is in the white house. We must put someone in the white house, who will change the direction of America. what this administration promised you, is a bunch of lies. TO.. kalelreg”

“Short term thinking. When I was in collage in the early 70s, the Dow has just hit 1000. So while it does fluctuate, it has continually gone up over time. And yes, it does reflect the global economy so one should be prudent when investing and not look at it as gambling!”
“Well, most of us are dumb enough to know that when you don't have enough to retire on that you keep working as long as you are able. After that, you live on what you have as well as you can and hope your property taxes and medical bills don't force you to sell off your house and end up living wherever.”
“I will not question whether or not this man's grief is real. I can only assume that it is true having children and grandchildren myself. Anyone who questions this or any other parent's grief obviously has never had children.”
“It really doesn't matter either way. We can't afford either Obamacare or Anyothercare.”

“You are saying we can afford plague and unnecessary deaths and weaknesses?
I would agree we cannot afford wasteful care or pay medical providers greatly more than we are earning ourselves. We can certainly afford more medical aids, nurses, and paramedics. Surveys indicate that total money hospitals spend on janitorial services are a better indication of their effective health care than the total money spent on doctors.”
