So, I see 70% on the top part income was done in 1981. What a communist country America WAS. Did Beck tell you how socialist and wealth redistribution is at an pretty low right now?

And a thing about corporate control by government and the founding fathers:

Q: The corporations of the early days of the republic were very different beasts than those of today. They seem to have been creatures of government — or at least of politicians — right?

A: That's right. Americans inherited the legal form of the corporation from Britain, where it was bestowed as a royal privilege on certain institutions or, more often, used to organize municipal governments. Just after the Revolution, new state legislators had to decide what to do about these charters. They could abolish them entirely, or find a way to democratize them and make them compatible with the spirit of independence and the structure of the federal republic. They chose the latter. So the first American corporations end up being cities and schools, along with some charitable organizations.

So where does FOX and Beck get the arrogance and the idea that small government and no corporate regulation is socialism, unamerican and not something the founding fathers stood for?

Ha, good points OP.

I am reminded of the Ronald McDonald trademarking of "I'm Lovin' It!" as a trademark. Isn't that a hoot!?

I mean just the notion of that being theirs, by law, is totally fucking hilarious on its face. Period, end of sentence, end of statement, that itself is funny as hell.

But then when you consider the ultimate irony of it, that McDonald's as such, part, parcel and whole, is the total anti-thesis of love, and therefore, cannot EVER BE "LOVIN'" ANYTHING, it becomes almost pathos-inducing.

And then, the next level higher, is that really, the phrase, "I'm Lovin' It", is actually on the lips of the CUSTOMER, so it is the "love" or the stimulus/response/comfort feelings, which they are mocking us with, and which they then deny to all of us.

So in fact, those of us who go to Mcd's (and yes I do, and I enjoy their food) though we are possibly even "Lovin' It", we are disallowed from using the term in any business endeavor, meaning, we cannot allow the word "Lovin'" or any derivation of that phrase, to our endeavors, or to the feelings that our customers may have. Whatever our friends feel when they enjoy our product, they best not be "Lovin' It", else Ronald will get the courts to destroy them.

Yes, this thing at which you are tilting, allows some fucking scary red and yellow clown to own all the "Lovin'" in the world.
