“How are my kids’ opportunities affected by how many millionaires there are?”

“How are my kids’ opportunities affected by how many millionaires there are?”

They’re not.

This is almost as good as his February 2009 rant.

Common sense is so rare these days it’s fascinating to watch it demonstrated.

The little mash-up over at Free Beacon is too funny!

Can we work Mitt up to a similar froth? Cuz I guarantee that it resonates deep and wide throughout America.

The Debt is the issue this election, and its the only issue that matters, and the only thing neither Romney or Obama want to address, No wonder Obama wants to talk about Buffet and Romney supporters want to talk about Israel or Justices. Cause both of them are Empty suits when it comes to cutting spending.

Best economics lesson I’ve had in a while….

I just posted this on my Facebook – I share what I can with my friends. Otherwise, the buy into the MSM mis-information. I posted from TheRightScoop – didn’t see your post first. 🙁

However, I will have to watch that “mash-up” now. 😀

Can the Republican candidate please imitate the Great Santelli’s act? Pretty please?

LukeHandCool (who is only momentarily breaking his promise to avoid LI and all other addictive sites while he crams for a slew of tests)

And yesterday, Mario Bartiromo pinned a WH spokesman to the wall by constantly asking “What budget!?” every time he would refer to Obama’s detailed budget. “There hasn’t been a budget in place in over 1,000 days! What budget are you talking about? The one that can’t get even one Democrat vote in Congress?”

Obama is in trouble. If the Republicans could have just found a way to not nominate a liberal Democrat, November would be a cake walk. Now it’s a toss up… at best.

    Last time I looked there were no replies but yesterday I did ask -how on earth is this Admin getting the money with no budget?

    I read someone on the admon/Dem side say that a Budget was not necessary because they had the debt limit raised. Are they using this as a direct credit line?

    h criticisms which I realise are hard for Americns to hear.

    – There seems to be no Constitutional barriers to this action .

    – The declining mathematical skills of the American people (as evidenced by international testing ) is real & the people cannot even count much less look at big numbers.

“They’re not.”

Well… if people (that is, Democrats in office) decide that there are too many millionaires and take steps to punish them, then that DOES affect your kids’ opportunities, by making it harder for them to achieve that level of success.

All the Buffet rule stuff is to obfuscate the fact that we’re up to our nose in debt and essentially continue business-as-usual in the spending department.

Thank gawd that I don’t run my personal life like the government runs theirs…

Very few smart ‘millionares’ get their $$ as a straight paypacket. It would be given as shares, health insurance, cars , entertainment allowance travel expenses credit card discounts , childrens educational scholarships etc.

The Share portfolio might be accessed only on a time /needs schedule .

Also are shares fully franked for the 17% ?

Again your system is your choice but if there is going to be a War against Millionares can we the audience get to know the rules?

Even Cage Fight has some roools.

Carl, trying to segue out on a cute moment gave way to a great understatement that was probably beyond his idealogical blinders.

“be careful with the furniture OK…Don’t throw the board across the floor.”

Santelli responds,

“The furniture is cheap by comparison.”

Heck, a lawsuit where Santelli seriously injured dozens of people by throwing the furniture every day for the next 100 years would be cheap by comparison.

    Rick Santelli–the Bobby Knight of finance!

    Actually, our dope-in-chief could use some discipline from the General.

Watched this myself this morning and loved it. He has a way with rants!

So… if one of my kids becomes a slug and sits on my couch all day playing video games at 30 years old, I CAN’T say it’s the fault of the wealthy? Dang. There goes plan A. (Wouldn’t want to hurt his self-esteem, ya know).
