THE REAL PROBLEM WITH OUR GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM.

The folks who are getting free stuff,
don't like the folks who are paying for the free stuff,
because the folks who are paying for the free stuff,
can no longer afford to pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.

And, the folks who are paying for the free stuff,
want the free stuff to stop.
and the folks who are getting the free stuff,
want even MORE free stuff on top of the free stuff they're getting already

Now, the people who are forcing people to PAY for the free stuff,
have told the people who are RECEIVING the free stuff, that the people who
are PAYING for the free stuff, are being mean, prejudiced and racist.

So, the people who are GETTING the free stuff, have been convinced they need
to HATE the people who are PAYING for the free stuff because they are
selfish. And they are promised more free stuff if they will vote for the
people who force the people who pay for the free stuff to give them even more
free stuff.

And - when the free stuff stops we will riot, burn, steal and commit mayhem. For the "rich" owes us!
It is happening in England and coming here soon.


And - - - - - that's the Straight Stuff!

Millionaires on the rebound


By Aaron Smith, staff writerMarch 16, 2011: 1:37 PM ET
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- What recession? The millionaire population jumped in the U.S. by 8% last year, fueled by the stock market recovery, according to an industry report on Wednesday.

The number of U.S. households worth at least $1 million rose to 8.4 million in 2010, compared to 7.8 million the prior year, according to a report by Spectrem Group.

"The affluent market grew in 2010 due primarily to the stock market rebound, but despite their growing portfolios, attitudes remain significantly different than in 2007," the report said.

Tax outrage: 1,400 millionaires didn't pay U.S. income taxes in 2009
Tax outrage: 1,400 millionaires didn't pay U.S. income taxes in 2009 | MLive.com
Every April 15, there's a rash of stories about the 47 percent of Americans who pay no federal income tax. But most people don't realize that group includes 1,400 millionaires, as the Associated Press reports.

So as your Michigan tax bill goes up next year thanks to Gov. Rick Snyder's income tax hikes, it probably won't make you feel any better that 1,400 millionaires aren't paying squat to the feds.

And let's not forget Forbes' 2010 report on what the top 25 U.S. corporations pay in taxes with this depressing subhead: How can it be that you pay more to the IRS than General Electric?

The millionaires statistic comes from new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) numbers showing that the recession means 2 million fewer taxpayers.

U.S. Has Record Number of Millionaires

U.S. Has Record Number of Millionaires - The Wealth Report - WSJ

If further proof were needed of the two-speed recovery?the rich and the rest?now comes news that America has a record number of millionaires.

According to the annual World Wealth Report from Merill Lynch and Capgemini, the U.S. had 3.1 million millionaires in 2010, up from 2.86 million in 2009. The latest figure tops the pre-crisis peak of three million.

Merrill and Capgemini define millionaires as individuals with $1 million or more in investible assets, not including primary home, collectibles, consumables and consumer durables.

The wealth held by these millionaires also hit a record. North American millionaires had a combined wealth of $11.6 trillion, up from $10.7 trillion in 2009.
