I really pity those that can't read/understand economic reports.
 
2013-03-02 07:10:19 PM
I voted for the change.

Unfortunately, a lot of very stupid and/or selfish assholes voted for the Party of Obstructionists to positions in Congress, too.

You can't change CEOs not paying their workers better wages

That trickle is coming, I can feel it. Just one more tax break and we are there.

Japan also has a slave caste of people who work part time for peanuts. They ain't makin' no 1/11th of a CEO's salary.

You don't understand how Japan does statistics.

There's insanely low HIV rates among Japanese, but odd there's a lot of pneumonia deaths among at risk segments of the population. How remarkable.

Capitalism in action.

Well that's it.  If only we had elected Romney wages for the average worker would have gone through the ceiling!

What country would you describe as being the least capitalist? I want to know what you consider the measure of success.

Yeah, this is totally Obummer's fault, not at all the fault of the party that is constantly not only refusing to implement a rational progressive tax policy but also trying to shift even greater burdens onto the non-rich while cutting taxes for the rich, trying to repeal the minimum wage and block increases, and working to get rid of overtime, among many other wonderful proposals that totally aren't a class war against the middle class when THEY do them.

Nearly any of the Scandinavian ones.  Successful use of capitalist principles to produce profit, but profit is more equally shared.

The US is designed to help Romney, Buffett and Gates add another $100,000,000 to the pile.  It is not designed to give a single parent direct access to healthcare for their children.  Interestingly, Buffett and Gates have a problem with this.
 
2013-03-02 10:21:30 PM
And many companies could keep their workers off the job and not pay them for 3 months and not a fark will be given by the sociopath Rmoneys of the world. and still make a profit.

/Then open up again and drop wages 10% due to the company being closed for 3 months.

It's the most basic principle - you have to work with your tax base, because there's only so far you can push them before the entire system gets ripped to shreds.

Maybe the subby is suggesting that the government pass a law that says that CEO's can't make more than 5% more than their average paid employee?

I think that would be a truly terrible idea. But I would support it since nothing else seems to be any better.

After-tax pay drops to lowest level since 1959. That change you voted for? Better check the couch cushions.

All, I found was stale cheetos, an old ketchup packet, and a dogs chew toy.

What did everyone else find?

We are taxed enough. The problem is that gubberment is spending nearly double what they're taking in. What other entity can do that?

I'm not going there. Last time I disturbed That Which Dwells Under The Couch, we lost the cat.

A shame, I liked that cat.

Typical brainless idiot. Obama isn't the cause, just the continuation.

The President controls wages?

Oh, right, he's a dictator!  He should dictate that greedy executives pay workers more!  Come on, Chairman 0bongo, dictate the f*ck out of those greedy capitalists like the tyrant you are!!

You are correct. American CEOs make 380 times more than the average worker, not 475. And I can provide a citation, unlike some people.

5mg methadone pill, a dirty sock, and some good and fruity candies. Sounds like a good time to me

I'm no expert, but I'm starting to think that allowing wealth to concentrate in fewer and fewer hands may not result in a bountiful trickling down and mass-enprosperating after all.

Obama the Blameless strikes again. It's always a mystery to me how Bush was responsible for <b>everything</b> bad that happened while there's always an excuse for Obama the Blameless.

So Obama should set a maximum wage and limit personal wealth in order to boost salaries of the middle/working-class??

People like you tell me he's a dictator.  Should he do that?

And Bush wasn't solely responsible for the clusterfark of 2001-2009.  He had plenty of help from other politicians and really fkn rich people to throw this country in the shiatter.  But don't worry, the elites won't be punished for there psychopathic rapacity.  People like you and me and our progeny have been hung out to dry for their shiat.  And assholes like you want more of it.  Fkn sadists.
