    "can't bear to listen to this man's speeches anymore"

    Same here.  I have seen begging on every corner on a 1.5 mile stretch of road that gets to the highway in the city I work in which supposedly has some of the lowest unemployment in the country.  I saw the begging in the south american 3rd world country I was in a month ago and the couple of other times I  have been to these different countries in the past couple years.  In Japan in two different cities for about 3 weeks ... never saw even one person begging or panhandling for food or money.  But apparently I have no idea what my lying eyes are telling me and am just a BO basher because I have nothing better to do.  

    Income inequality:

    $300 billion trade deficit with China in 2012.  "Shatters record".... it wasn't mentioned that it was the largest trade deficit that 1 nation had with another in all of history:

    "History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance." -James Madison
