DamnYankees: Heads will roll.


And how do you expect this to happen without the factories to make the guillotines?  The workers to sharpen the blades?  The children to take the heads away?  EVEN WHEN YOU WANT TO KILL ME, YOU NEED ME.  AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH.

You know what? The guillotine is a bit too old-fashioned and inefficient to deal with today's type of plutocrats.

Time for us to bring out the wood-chippers!!!

Captain Dan: ongbok: Never heard of the French Revolution and the bourgeoisie?

If the French Revolutionaries had been well-fed to the point of obese, and had access to TV, porn, and marijuana, then France would still today have the Ancien Régime.


Nobody in France had a refrigerator at that time so therefore and such as.

WraithSama: Lionel Mandrake: the one percent simply "work harder" than everyone else.

That may be generally true...but they don't work many thousands X harder than everyone else, you farksticks.

And it all depends on what you mean by "hard work."  One day in the fields with farm workers would probably kill you shiatheads.

That is the single argument of the rich that pisses me off the most.  If some rich asshole tells me he's rich simply because he "works harder" than the poor, it would take a not-insignificant amount of effort to not throat punch him on the spot.  It does (usually) take hard work to become rich, but it takes an equal measure of opportunity (plus the random factor of luck), and opportunity is not something everyone has.  That's kind of the point.

Besides, I've heard it said before that if all it took to be wealthy was hard work, then unwed single mothers would among the world's richest.  I don't doubt it.


NO, you see, rich people work 2000x times harder than even unwed mothers, and that's why CEO's make 2000x the amount you do.

Doesn't that sound reasonable, kemosabe?

plewis: fark these people.  fark the nameable very very rich.  And SUPER fark them if they just sit on their mountain of gold, the farkers.  THAT shiat is what is killing the American economy.  No one would begrudge them their wealth if they farkING WORKED!


Fiat money, that is, federally licensed IOUs have one useful attribute.  One.  They move around.  They make an economy an accessible thing to the broad scope of the populace when they move freely.  Because if everybody plays along with the con, the con mostly works.  But that's ALL they're worth.  And when when a handzful of people use them to leverage more IOUs and, because we let them, actual wealth - and stuff it up their asses - the economy shuts off like a 20 year old dog on a euthanasia table.  Check your watch.

Aside from doctors, many of whom work their asses off, rich people generally don't work any harder than anybody else.
