It's the American Dream, Stupid. Wake Up!

Fetch the smelling salts! It's time to revive the comatose. It's time to give President Obama a choice: We, the People? Or "Them" the Elitists?



From my understanding, our government is for the people, therefore, it is supposed to serve our interests, not the interests of Goldman Sachs or any other elitist entity.  So, President Obama, like it or not, is our servant, and he can't serve two masters ("no servant can be in bondage to two masters. For either he will hate one and love the other, or else he will cling fast to one and scorn the other. You cannot be bondservants both of God and of gold.") 

Smelling Salts:

Seven of the nation's 10 richest counties are in the D.C. area

The survey was based on 2009 data from the U.S. Census Bureau.  It names Virginia's Loudoun County as the top spot, with its median household income exceeding $114,000 per year. 17% of Loudoun households make more than $200,000, while only 16% earn less than the national average household income of $50,000.  Fairfax County takes the #2 spot in the country. It was the first county to  hit six figures with its median household income, and more than half its homes make more than that number now.

DOD Directive NUMBER 1404.10 -  What exactly is DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce?

(2) DoD civilian employees in E-E or NCE positions may be directed to accept deployment requirements of the position. However, whenever possible,DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce will be asked to serve expeditionary requirements voluntarily. Management retains the authority to direct and assign civilian employees, either voluntarily, involuntarily, or on an unexpected basis to accomplish the DoD mission.
The United States is more Banana Republic than Banana Republics.
The richest 1 percent of Americans now take home almost 24 percent of income, up from almost 9 percent in 1976. As Timothy Noah of Slate noted in an excellent series on inequality, the United States now arguably has a more unequal distribution of wealth than traditional banana republics like Nicaragua, Venezuela and Guyana. C.E.O.'s of the largest American companies earned an average of 42 times as much as the average worker in 1980, but 531 times as much in 2001. Perhaps the most astounding statistic is this: From 1980 to 2005, more than four-fifths of the total increase in American incomes went to the richest 1 percent."
