I'm in agreement with you. Even Warren Buffett, who , for some odd, naïve, and strange reason, I admired, has turned out to be a fink.(Why should he be different from all the other fink 1%?) He recently bought Heinz. Why? Well, it's a good investment, guarantees a steady income for Berkshire-Hathaway and is a 700 out ofmany contributions these employees have made to Heinz and we are committed to treating all employees with the utmost respect and dignity."
SUUUUUURE. Bastards. Up yours, Buffett.
I apologize for cutting your post.

You have stated the absolute truth and the only cover these top 0.1% have is they contribute to charities (philanthropy).

Back in the 1880s they all were getting bad reputations from the Muckrakers so they decided to get involved in philanthropy which is a good thing, even though they just did it for good Public Relations.

The Shock Doctrine: Naomi Klein on the Rise of Disaster Capitalism
http://tinyurl.com/2aqdqh September 17th, 2007
Pinochet's coup in Chile. The massacre in Tiananmen Square. The collapse of the Soviet Union. September 11th, 2001. The war on Iraq. The Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. Award-winning investigative journalist Naomi Klein brings together all of these world-changing events in her new book, "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism." In her first national broadcast interview since the publication of "The Shock Doctrine," Klein joins us in our firehouse studio for the hour. Klein writes, "The history of the contemporary free market was written in shocks." She argues that "Some of the most infamous human rights violations of the past thirty-five years, which have tended to be viewed as sadistic acts carried out by anti-democratic regimes, were in fact either committed with the deliberate intent of terrorizing the public or actively harnessed to prepare the ground for the introduction of radical free-market reforms

We'll have to discuss this one day. I have absolutely no contempt for the rich and, like you, I disapprove of those who don't wish to honestly earn a living. I hate welfare cheating but hate corporate welfare even more as those people don't need handouts or to cheat. What I wrote in the post that you just replied to is pretty much how I feel about the whole situation. Not everyone has the will, the talent, the wherewithal to be rich - hell, there is no way more than , let's say , 5% of the population can be very rich. Were we all rich, we'd be all poor - can you see a billion-dollar rich guy doing his own plumbing and picking up his own garbage or doing the valves on his Mercedes?
There are fewer and fewer rich people who have made their fortunes from the ground up. You have CEOs who act like they own the companies in which they have less than 5% of the shares. Yet, take the CEO of Blackberry who was brought in less than 2 years ago to turn it around. To make a long story short, he ran it into the ground instead. He did manage to lay off over 40,000 employees worldwide, though. How do they think they feel when they learned last week that the aforementioned CEO had been fired but would pick up a severance pay of $22 million for TWO FRIGGIN YEARS OF FAILURE. You tell me how fair that is. Oh, his contract called for $44 million severance pay but they negotiated it down to 22. Awwww, poor bugger. When I say it's not a level playing field, that is what I mean.
I also have a difficult time trying to understand why it is the board of directors of so many big corporations shower failure with so much wealth, at the expense of the shareholders and employees that provide much of the resources to make it all possible. It does seem very unfair and even immoral, but it happens all the time. I feel about the same way about those cheats as I do the lazy and slothful poor. Whether you believe in God or not, this life we all experience is a blessing not to be squandered, wasted, or capitalized on at the expense of others.

Wong.

1. Cost of Living. From 2008 to 2013 the cost of living has risen only 8.8% in five years. In comparison in during Bush's administration from 2003 to 2008 the cost of living rose 17% in five years. Almost a 200% increase.

2. Salary. Average hourly earnings rose from 22.01 in January 2009 to 24.10 in October 2013. An increase of 9.49%. As such, average hourly earnings kept pace with cost of living during the Obama's administration.

It was payback time for the dems who didn't get what they wanted for years, that's when spending and debt skyrocketed.

Again talking through your hat. The Post Office has been bankrupted by the Republican congress, making it impossible to turn it around by refusing to halt stupid Saturday mail delivery which is a huge loss leader - not to mention the horrendous pension obligations foisted upon it,(no other federal arm of the gov't has had that done to them) in order to force privatization of the best and juiciest parts like parcel post, leaving losing money-loser home mail delivery to the gov't. And they'll keep repeating "see how the pvt guys are making money with parcel post and how the gov't loses money with home mail delivery? I'd like to see FedEx hand deliver a letter from Portland Maine to Fairbanks Alaska on a Saturday for 55 cents .
