Republicans 2016 – Mitt Romney Still Lying After All These Years – ‘For Romney, Income Inequality Talk No Longer Just for “Quiet Rooms”

romney3

‘Speaking to an RNC audience in San Diego on Friday, potential three-time GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney explained how version 3.0 would differ from the first two voters previously rejected’.

“First we have to make the world safer. Second, we have to make sure and provide opportunity for all Americans regardless of the neighborhood they live in. And finally, we have to lift people out of poverty.”

‘But Mitt felt differently after winning the Florida primary on February 1, 2012’:

I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs a repair, I’ll fix it.”
‘Mitt Romney on Wall Street and inequality’

LAUER: “Are there no fair questions about the distribution of wealth without it being seen as envy, though”?

ROMNEY: “You know, I think it’s fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms and discussions about tax policy and the like, but the President has made this part of his campaign rally everywhere we go, or where he goes”.

The Republican Fringe – ‘Beck: Our Founding Principles Require That Christianity Receive Preferential Treatment’

beck

The Constitution Article 6 Section 3 – “…..but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States”.(2)

Glenn Beck : “We are clearly a Judeo-Christian nation.”

‘For the last three years, right-wing Christian groups have been distributing Bibles to students in the Orange County, Florida, public schools system every January on “National Freedom of Religion Day.”

‘This year, after atheist groups and Satanists sought to likewise distribute materials to students, the school system suspended the program and Glenn Beck is predictably furious’.

Greed – ‘The Global 1%’

poor17

The remaining population accounts for just 5.5% of global wealth, and their average wealth was $3,851 (£2,544) per adult in 2014, Oxfam found’.

‘That compares with an average wealth of $2.7m per adult for the elite 1%’.

‘The wealthiest 1% will soon own more than the rest of the world’s population, according to a study by anti-poverty charity Oxfam’.

‘The charity’s research shows that the share of the world’s wealth owned by the richest 1% increased from 44% in 2009 to 48% last year’.

‘On current trends, Oxfam says it expects the wealthiest 1% to own more than 50% of the world’s wealth by 2016′.

[…]

‘The charity said the research, published on Monday, showed that 52% of global wealth not owned by the richest 1% is owned by those in the richest 20%’.

Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man Thief…… – ‘Rich Couple Lives Beyond Their Means – Complains That They’re Broke’

rich rich

‘Apparently Canadian 1%ers suffer the same
indignity, at least according to one Vancouver
couple, who makes $25,000 (about $21,000 U.S.
dollars) a month. That’s each month, not each
year’.

‘Eric, 41, is a physician who makes $200,000 a
year working at a medical clinic and an additional
$100,000 a year teaching at a university. Ilsa,
39, a dentist, is currently on maternity leave and
when she goes back to work, her income is
$150,000’.

‘Their $450,000 per year income equates to about
$376,000 in U.S. dollars. This puts them at about
the top 2% in U.S. income. They earn more than
five times British Columbia’s median family
income’.

‘Granted, the physician/college professor and
dentist have five kids, but even taking that into
account, their monthly expenditures seem
extravagant’.

You’re going to want to sit down for the next
part…..
