**why do you believe that your story has more merit than mine? Why does the 'entitlement attitude' stink more coming off the wealthy than the poor, eh?**

Why do you see this as who has more merit instead of people expressing themselves or telling about their experience? Why does it have to be an assumption of the worst about anyone that has a different experience and would like to express it?

**The point, before your heroic deflection, was that just because you are a conservative does not mean you have exclusive right to have a 'Horatio Alger' story, not that I'm trying to 'shut down' Gina.**

It's not a deflection regardless of how hard you'll try to paint it as such, it's a fact. Gina expressed her experience and how she handled hardship which, as a result helped form her opinion. What's wrong with that?

I have no idea who or what Horatio Alger is.

*Well, if you guys would quit nominating these nutballs for high political office, we wouldn't have anything to talk about... *

I'm voting against a Republican candidate for Senate ;)

Another good one id "Drift" by Maddow. It details the drifting of our mission with our military from one of a war machine used in defence of ourselves and our our allies by a conscripted population (from the ENTIRE population) that included all levels of society to a military that looks more like a police force focused mainly on police actions and comprised mainly of poor volunteers.

It makes a lot of sense. Our fathers had the shared experience early in life (Repubs and Dems, rich and poor, etc) that taught them how to interact and work together despite those differences, our current youth not so much.

Recommendation for the SLS book club:

PLUTOCRATS - The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else

A groundbreaking examination of wealth disparity, income inequality, and the new global elite

There has always been some gap between rich and poor in this country, but in the last few decades what it means to be rich has changed dramatically. Alarmingly, the greatest income gap is not between the 1 percent and the 99 percent, but within the wealthiest 1 percent of our nation--as the merely wealthy are left behind by the rapidly expanding fortunes of the new global super-rich. Forget the 1 percent; Plutocrats proves that it is the wealthiest 0.1 percent who are outpacing the rest of us at break-neck speed.

What’s changed is more than numbers. Today, most colossal fortunes are new,

not inherited--amassed by perceptive businessmen who see themselves as deserving victors in a cut-throat international competition. As a transglobal class of successful professionals, today’s self-made oligarchs often feel they have more in common with one another than with their countrymen back home. Bringing together the economics and psychology of these new super-rich, Plutocrats puts us inside a league very much of its own, with its own rules.

"You are attempting to silence Gina as you've attempted to silence me on my outlook about the criminal, lazy, unproductive entitled OWS thugs. Shame is on you for attempting to suppress others from expressing themselves. "

Oh please s42... I'm not trying to 'silence' anyone, how melodramatic of you!

The same goes for you bubchick, why do you believe that your story has more merit than mine? Why does the 'entitlement attitude' stink more coming off the wealthy than the poor, eh?

The point, before your heroic deflection, was that just because you are a conservative does not mean you have exclusive right to have a 'Horatio Alger' story, not that I'm trying to 'shut down' Gina.

Nice try though.

Thats okay. Hit them back with the fact the emails have now emerged proving the white house knew in real time what was happening in Libya, who was responsible, and the lied about a video. Why? Election time thats why.

In this modern world, the cozy world of lazy wealth accumulation by taking the future value of American companies, selling the companies assets, and outsourcing its jobs for lower wages in China is the domain of Willard Mitt Romney, outsourcing pioneer and Mormon bishop.

Any and all other enterprises of the Romney Crime Family Enterprise included depositing large amounts in foreign and alien banks, dedicated to the principle of avoiding American taxes.

Seriously. Another crime family enterprise. Big W. Just like Dubya. Bigoted and religious.
