One thing is for sure, Nooseman didn't build anything.

I wonder if Obamascam covers treatment for Wraith Derangement Syndrome?

BirdBrain needs to join liars anonymous before reality just becomes a distant memory for him.

ThrillSlober "It’s wonderful that Bill Gates is encouraging his fellow billionaires to give something back to the society that helped make them rich."

Proving every day, that reading comprehension was never his cup of poison. Stop going off half-cocked all the time. Breath...Get a grip.

obie wants to be a benevolent dictator, because he knows it's for our own good. This just makes it easier to beat all those horrible right wingers blocking his wonderful plan for us.

Notice you aren't hearing Buffet quoted in the news anymore? He's stopped pushing the millionaire tax because it was coming close to home, and he jumped all over obie for the health care debacle.

Harry needs a reality check. Billionaires want to pay more? Tell that to Warren Buffet, noted Democrat, who has been fighting the IRS for years over a billion dollars in unpaid taxes.

It’s wonderful that Bill Gates is encouraging his fellow billionaires to give something back to the society that helped make them rich.

It’s pathetic that envious Goosy is parroting Bill Gates in a jealous whine that she deserves a cut, and interprets his call for generosity as a call for more Government wealth confiscation and redistribution of others' wealth to her. LOL

Myer, you have stooped to a new low in misinformation. You should be in Congress with your buddy, McKinley. You'd be right at home.

Goose just proved there are liberal billionaires, a fact that Harry Reid continually overlooks. You need an intervention Goose. Drop the needle, it's killing you.

"Yes I know many of you money people worked hard as did I, and you survived and prospered where others did not. A fair economic system should always allow for an opportunity to succeed. Congratulations. Smoke that cigar, enjoy that Chateau Lafite 1989. But (mostly you guys) acknowledge your good fortune at having been born in the ‘40s, ‘50s or ‘60s, entering the male-dominated workforce 25 years later, and having had the privilege of riding a credit wave and a credit boom for the past three decades. You did not, as President Obama averred, “build that,” you did not create that wave. You rode it. And now it’s time to kick out and share some of your good fortune by paying higher taxes or reforming them to favor economic growth and labor, as opposed to corporate profits and individual gazillions." Bill Gross, the billionaire founder and chief investment officer of Pacific Investment Management Co.

Reid is out of touch? You might want to take back that "Out of touch with r

"Developed economies work best when inequality of incomes are at a minimum. Right now, the U.S. ranks 16th on a Gini coefficient for developed countries, barely ahead of Spain and Greece. By reducing the 20% of national income that “golden scrooges” now earn, by implementing more equitable tax reform that equalizes capital gains, carried interest and nominal income tax rates, we might move up the list to challenge more productive economies such as Germany and Canada."

"Wealthy people need to stop whining about the taxes they pay, realize their success is mostly dumb luck and pay even higher taxes to help the less fortunate, Bill Gross, the billionaire founder and chief investment officer of Pacific Investment Management Co., wrote to his wealthy investors on Thursday.

"Having gotten rich at the expense of labor, the guilt sets in and I begin to feel sorry for the less well-off," Gross writes in his latest monthly missive, entitled "Scrooge McDucks," posted on the website of PIMCO, the world's biggest bond fund. His letters are usually colorful and sometimes self-critical. But this one is notable for its direct mockery of his own wealthy peers and clients:

Admit that you, and I and others in the magnificent '1%' grew up in a gilded age of credit, where those who borrowed money or charged fees on expanding financial assets had a much better chance of making it to the big tent than those who used their hands for a living

Harry Reid claims this months "Out of touch with reality" Award!

"The rich are willing to pay more. They're not the ones out here saying, 'please don't tax me.' The only people who feel there shouldn't be more coming in to the federal government from rich people are the Republicans in the Congress. Everybody else, including rich people, are willing to pay more. They want to pay more."

This one is sure to make the Top 5 All Time!

Free market selection of what's best for each customer is what will benefit the OV. Government meddling and favoritism of one industry over the other for ideological reasons is always bad for the economy.
