    The right wing is still cognitively dissonant enough to complain about Taxes while being willing to wage a common (and global) Offense with the Peoples' exorbitantly expensive superpower.

    From what I'm seeing, YOU are the one whining repetitiously, posting essentially the same thing over and over in nearly every thread you post to. Others have responded to you in various ways in an attempt to explain what you appear to not understand.

    Reading your posts is like adding zero to zero, you still end up with nothing.

    I'm certainly aware of the work ethic you address but we need to understand something. Based upon numerous different statistics I've read somewhere between 40% and 50% of all jobs don't provide enough compensation for the households to live on. All of those employed in these jobs have the exact same work ethic that you and I had all of our lives. They go to work daily, they work hard, they don't want to depend upon anyone else, and they're trying to get ahead but the fact is that the employment market is still going to prevent 40% to 50% of them from getting ahead financially. Yes, some will get ahead but effectively they simply force someone else back down into this 40% to 50% that aren't making enough to live on.

    Many like to say those hard working Americans receiving compensation below the cost of living could simply get a better education and earn more but even that's false. Based upon what I've read we have about 40 million college graduates but only about 30 million jobs that require a college degree. If we increased the number of college graduates to 50 million there would still only be 30 million jobs. That's why current statistics indicate that about 50% of recent college graduates are 'under-employed' in a job that doesn't require a college degree. Basically they're over-qualified individuals not receiving compensation equal to their qualifications because the jobs simply don't exist.

    Here's a fact. If American managed to get a PhD then we would have people with a PhD cleaning toilets because the toliets must be cleaned.

    Employment statistics indicate that between 40% and 50% of those with the same work ethic that you and I have will still end up living in poverty today because almost half of all the jobs pay poverty level compensation. One person's success effectively results in another person's failure based upon our current job market. As one person pushes their way up the economic ladder it forces someone else down the economic ladder based upon the employment compensation statistics.

    You simply need a clue and a Cause; like I always claim.

    I am not whining about taxes. A super power is a very powerful or influential nation. (examples) The U.S. is not a police state.

    Why don't you learn how to use capital letters?

    And if you think that free college and higher taxes is going to work your wrong. What makes you think that anyone would invest their money, more responsibilities, etc only for government to take more away? There is no incentive. The left does not understand human nature.

    For people who can't get good paying jobs, here, read this thread

    Yet, the right complains about taxes and does virtually nothing to discourage our useless and expensive, war on drugs. every new program is simply asking the People to pay more.

    Only if people would "just say no" (both dealing and using drugs) we wouldn't have to fight the expensive war on drugs. :)

    Instead it costs hard working American people money. Even if someone wants to stop using it costs a lot of money to help them. Just think if they wouldn't have started in the first place. Now there's a thought!
