      ...you're a little confused in your quest for positivism. In your world, being "positive" means ignoring reality. That's not positivism. That's fantasy. Have a great Sunday!

    •  Obama is becoming rather famous for saying the (0+ / 0-)

      right words - wonderful words - and taking the opposite actions.

      Today, he wishes to address the income gap and growing inequality.  But, still today, his own cabinet and sub-cabinet appointees are of the "make the rich richer" ilk.  Until he appoints people to posts who actually care about addressing the income gap and growing inequality and pushing legislation doing the same, I'll not waste much time putting much "hope" in his "leadership."

      He's done precisely the opposite of his words over and over.  Just recently he was pushing "strengthening retirement stability and security" all the while that he is ALSO pushing the Grand Compromise to reduce SS benefits.

      The man needs a mirror, badly.
