Neighborhood Watch: You know, posting comments on Fark.com doesn't pay.What's amazing is how many liberals will sit here and do it all day long... while complaining about how 'unfair' it is that they're broke./wasting time on Fark is DEFINITELY not a job that's been shipped overseas
HotWingConspiracy: Infernalist: OnlyM3: HighlanderRPI2013-09-17 07:56:21 AM/ObligReagan has been out of office for how many years now? Bush disagreed with his economic beliefs calling them "Voodoo economics" and changed the course.... leading to the bush recession. Remember "It's the economy stupid"?So, how long has zero been in office? You're blaming Reagan who's been dead longer than zero has been at the helm.So, you think that the bad economy of the late 80s is because of Bush sr.? lol oh god, it burns.Hyper conservatism can never be wrong.
Katolu: Can't wait to feel the warmth of the liquid gold.

marsoft: bunner: marsoft: People are paid what they will accept, influenced by what others will acceptAnd it better be a damn sight lower than your poor ass thinks it should be, cause there's a 1,000 serfs waiting in line to do it for less.I already said basically that in the second part of my sentence. So what was the point of your posting?
maddogdelta: Lady J: regardless of libs vs cons; whatever (all boring)what's to be done? you can't march into people's houses and take wealthIt happens all the time. It's called "Illegal Forclosure" and banks have gotten richer, and nobody goes to jail for it. EVERYONE WINS!Except for the poor people who lost their house, but who gives a flying fark about them anyway?
Joe Blowme: dready zim: Joe Blowme: dready zim: Lady J: Carn: Lady J: regardless of libs vs cons; whatever (all boring)what's to be done? you can't march into people's houses and take wealthNo, but reasonable actions can be taken to attempt to lower the gap in future earnings while at the same time adding funds to our still unbalanced budget.Add a couple more higher tax brackets and raise income taxes on the wealthy.Count capital gains as income over 100K and tax at same rate.Get rid of the ceiling on earnings for paying social security.Make sure estate taxes stay around or are reinstated.Add a very small trading tax on the major US stock markets (.03%) to dampen high frequency trading and gambling for short term profit. If you want to gamble trade commodities.Reinstate Glass Steagal or a new version. Don't let banks be in the mortgage business and trading business.Raise the minimum wage and peg it to CPI, inflation, or some other sensible metric.Create a new Federal works program with the goal to rebuild every single defunct federal road, bridge, dam, or other in America. This will take decades. If you grow the bottom and middle, the vast wealth at the top becomes less dangerous to the economy.see, this is what I meant. you get a 'smart!' clickAlso, DO put a hard limit on individual wealth gain. Peg it to the minimum wage to give them an incentive to increase that...fark your american dream that lets a few people ruin the world for the rest of us.Yes, by all means lets punnish success and see how that worksSuccess built on the hard work of others deserves punishment. It would work better if we rewarded hard work, not your ability to screw over others.How you get your success matters. A lot.But it is ok to just take it from those whom you feel didnt "earn it" properly? If they break the law aquiring it, im with you. If they did not, i can not.
MithrandirBooga: We're nearing the point in human history where the supply of labour will be so high and the demand for labour will be so low that the effective market price of that labour will be Zero.What in the actual fark do you think is going to happen when that happens?
Dinki: DrPainMD: A poor person isn't poorer because someone else is rich.Actually, yes they are. If the rich guy gets his money by paying the poor guy a minimal amount when he could just as easily pay the poor guy more.
Madbassist1: Joe Blowme: Yes, by all means lets punnish success and see how that worksWanna know how I know you are not part of the successful crowd you're white knighting?
HotWingConspiracy: DrPainMD: Is this the thread where everybody biatches about other people's money when they should be out earning money for themselves?Yeah massive wealth inequality exists because people are lazy!
Lady J: regardless of libs vs cons; whatever (all boring)what's to be done? you can't march into people's houses and take wealth
Neighborhood Watch: I've never understood why liberals are so obsessed with other peoples' money (and/or private property, in general).
