ComicBookGuy: blacksharpiemarker: Joe Blowme: And yet another jealousy thread

I don't think any of us here give a shiat about how much money someone else makes. The problem is that the majority of us don't have enough money to meet our own essential living costs.

Live and let live.

And the fact that the shiatty lifestyle of the poor is definitely fueling the opulence of the rich, and the retarded lower/lower-middle class Teabaggers voting against their own economic self-interest is rage inducing.

The poor aren't fueling anything for anyone and the above average educated and above average income teabaggers possibly have more ethics than a person who consistantly votes for their own economic interests.  Everything is not outcome based for everyone.  It is in my economic best interest to murder an old couple down the street and search their home for cash and jewelry, but I'm not going to go and.....come to think of it, I have been torn between a Rem 7600, cheap used 7400, a BAR and I've been weighing those against others things I want to buy like a shed for the yard, a new car, some motorcycle parts, and a media PC.  I could just buy it all and not even have to use my own money.  fark it and fark the tea party and all the legal governance shiat.  Self-interest is where it's at.  Might divorce the wife and hook up with a skank with two kids living in $150 per month section 8 housing while I'm at it.   I'll be living like a king.  I suddenly feel total rage towards anyone who is retarded enough to ignore their own self-interest.

SordidEuphemism: I think it would be impressive if (more) CEOs made sure they were only paid 10x more than their lowest-paid employees. Everyone can grow together. But that would require a rethinking of profits, corporate structures, and the like

Sure.  Effective immediately, everyone who gets paid less than 1/10 of what the CEO wants to make is no longer an employee but a consultant.

When you're paid in beavers...

Sadly, as a Canadian and I can testify that I have never been paid for anything in beavers.

Less wealth disparity, better economy, better healthcare, better education, and once this global warming thing gets really get going and melts the permafrost they'll have even greater area for development and agriculture.

I'm putting my bet in now that after we lose to China, and China collapses, Canada will be the world's power.
