Have you looked into how the wealth is distributed across the populations in very well educated countries?
Have you looked at what your so-called "progressives" have done to our education system?
Wouldn't you conclude that, given your so-called "progressives" have destroyed our education system and replaced it with the most expensive education system in the world that generates the most ignorant workforce in the industrialized world, we are becoming less educated in general, and a natural effect of becoming less educated is the wealth will migrate increasingly to a smaller percentage of the population?
Want to have a more evenly distributed wealth? Fix the goddam education system you destroyed. Your only other option is to steal it from those who are still sufficiently educated to maintain a good paying career.
You created this mess. And, now that you're sufferring from what you caused, you want to steal to compensate what you're not worth today.
The only think that will happen with your plan is there will continually be less wealth to redistribute, until there is no wealth.
So easy for you to talk your shit since you work for an industry that has no regulations on the amount it can charge for its product. And that same product must be used by every American. Exxon made the largest profit of any company ever in world history by screwing America and there is nothing that can be done about it. There was a time in America before Reagan that a person could have a middle class life working for a company. Those days have pasted and those jobs are few. The Rich sent the middle class jobs to China to pay slave girls .30 cents an hour to produce their product. Now I know you think .30 cents an hour is fair but losing over 30,000 companies in the past 20 years has destroyed the nation.

That is a HUGE news story. Don't you wonder why all the news networks are pretending it didn't happen?
There were 3 times more police officers than there were moslems. Guess we have more terrorist moslems than most like to think...they didn't want to show their faces.

NYT continues pile on

As Obama Pauses Action, Putin Takes Center Stage
Yet suddenly Mr. Putin has eclipsed Mr. Obama as the world leader driving the agenda in the Syria crisis. He is offering a potential, if still highly uncertain, alternative to what he has vocally criticized as America’s militarism and reasserted Russian interests in a region where it had been marginalized since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Here I thought they were Obama syncopates but it turns out embarrassing Americans is their top game.

At least one half-dozen protesters attend the return of Benghazipalooza

"Thousands"? Seriously? Take a look at that photo at the top of this post. That's the rally they were talking about. If you think that looks like thousands of people, then you are one of the blessed few who can see the evidence supporting President Obama's impeachment. Everybody else just sees nothing.

Bush simply said Obama was in a tough position and had to make a tough decision. Obama was too naïve to know about tough decisions as a corrupt Chicago politician and wanting to try Bush and Cheney for war crimes as the president because they made tough decisions.

Obama never said anything about putting Bush or Cheney on trial for war crimes YOU GODDAMNED LIAR! No Bush and Cheney didn't make hard decisions , they were planning on invading Iraq even before the Al Qaeda attacks on 9/11. Unlike Obama they were as shown in the downing street memo fixing intelligence around their intention to invade. Obama is not planning on sending troops to their deaths without ant post invasion plans like Bush did but to use our airpower to prevent Assad from using his chemical weapons against his own people.

So decades of wealth redistribution towards the wealthy is now because of our education system.

Even though the trend has been toward more & more people completing HS & getting college degrees.

I mean it can't because the wealthy set the policies in this country & have for decades, bending the laws & tax codes to their advantage.

Its because the evil liberals made everyone else stupid.

If anyone working hard is making minimum wage, they just started working hard the other day, or maybe just this morning.
Anyone who works hard as a way of life will not be in the position you describe. They are in that position because they made the choices that caused them to be worth only minimum wage, if that.
Anyone who is still making minimum wage after two years in the work force is worthless.
I suggest firing anyone who has not progressed above minimum wage after two years. Perhaps they are just in the wrong place. If that is the case, then they needed to change jobs. Sometimes that's the only change that needs to be made.
If you don't like making minimum wage, make the choices that makes you worth more than minimum wage.
No employer should be forced to pay more for the same worthless product.
So you think companies with minimum wage jobs, fill those positions & they all get advanced within that company.

You people keep telling me companies can't survive if the minimum wage is raised. Even though todays rate is far lower than it was 30 - 40 years ago in comparative dollars.

So certainly there must be a pile of minimum wage workers out there & they certainly aren't all getting promoted within two years.

So companies pay a wage that two wage earners in a family still don't make enough & we have to subsidize these people with food stamps & government programs - rent, heat, healthcare, school lunches, etc.

Earned Income Tax Credits was passed by Republicans to avoid a hike in the minimum wage. So tax payers pay instead of the employers. A subsidy.

I thought you free market" people were about no government help?

But here you are ( with or subsidized salary) telling us the government needs to subsidize the workers of companies that pay minimum wage.

So many of people working to get off welfare & make it on their own & you call them "worthless".
