  • Hehe yep you busted me. I'm much more curious what the cast of Jersey Shore is up to.

    /sarcasm

    I was more interested in the article that said that the nation's millionaires control 39% of the nation's wealth. But you know, that's just me.

  • I was more interested in the article that said that the nation's millionaires control 39% of the nation's wealth.


    So, develop a business plan, work hard, dedicate your life to becoming one of them...  I have worked hard to develop my own business and am perfectly happy with my financial place in life.... I guess because I have goals and am dedicated to my future~ I don't need to be worried about what others are making... C'est la vie... ;o)

  • I find them all interesting but in order of level of interest, IMO:


    1. Fannie & Freddie got $400 million in no-bid contracts  What does this mean to each taxpaying citizen?


    2. Auto Bailout  What does this mean to each taxpaying citizen?


    3. Manufacturing orders fell  How does this impact our economy?


    4. Obama and supporters were against Palin's Wildlife strategy  Feral pigs are a huge threat to agriculture.

  • why worry about wealth when it's already been taxed? You don't get to tax wealth, just income.

  • They all make me sick! They all demonstrate how the "Progressive Elitists" are raping this country and yet "they" name the rich as the enemy, which is a joke because "THEY" ARE THE RICH!!!
