As GRANDPA mentioned in another post, a new study shows that the 85 richest people globally are worth more than the 3.5 billion of the poorest people.

"The extent to which so much global wealth has become corralled by a virtual handful of the so-called 'global elite' is exposed in a new report from Oxfam on Monday. It warned that those richest 85 people across the globe share a combined wealth of £1tn, as much as the poorest 3.5 billion of the world's population."

And, "The wealth of the 1% richest people in the world amounts to $110tn (£60.88tn), or 65 times as much as the poorest half of the world...

Oxfam also argues that this is no accident either, saying growing inequality has been driven by a "power grab" by wealthy elites, who have co-opted the political process to rig the rules of the economic system in their favour."

If Sammy and lil Loco think that our biggest issue is Marxism, get real. It's a 'one world government' alright, a world dominated by the 1%.

Lil teepee....are youready to pay? After all, you are among the richest 1% of wage earners in the world.
If you make more than $50k per year, you are among the top 1% wage earners in the world.
So, let's keep it in perspective lil teepee...or.......start paying up most of what you earn to level the playing fied for the other 99% of the world.

· Got $2200? In this world, you’re rich. Assets (not cash) of $2200 per adult place a person in the top 50% of the world’s wealthiest.*

· If you made $1500 last year, you’re in the top 20% of the world’s income earners.**

· If you have sufficient food, decent clothes, live in a house or apartment, and have a reasonably reliable means of transportation, you are among the top 15% of the world’s wealthy.**

· Have $61,000 in assets? You’re among the richest 10% of the adults in the world.*

·If you earn $25,000 or more annually, you are in the top 10% of the world’s income-earners.***

There is no end to the jealous standard that liberals employ in order to push for socialism/comunism.

Only a moron or a completely brainwashed t bagger would compare $61,000 in assets to a multi Billion dollar fortune, therefore I suggest that…

You are one of the wealthiest 1 % of the world.
When will you show how truly sorry/guilty you feel and turn over your entire salary to the other 99% who truly need it?
C'mon now lil teepee......if you want to attack rich people in this world, you need to begin with the man in the mirror.
Compared to most of the other 7 billion people in this world, you are one of those rich biyatches.

Those “Evil, Rich People”– are Democrats
From the,“you never hear about that from the media” file – Those “Evil, Rich People” that Democrats are always wailing about are actually – Democrats.

While I don’t agree in referring to rich people as “Evil”, Democrats are often making such accusations. But what most people don’t realize is that the Top 3 “richest” people in the country are all Democrats. This list includes: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett & Larry Ellison are all Democrats. Together, they are worth $126 Billion Dollars.

An analysis of the Top 20 Richest People in America (from Forbes Top 100) reveals that a full 60% are actually Democrats. Furthermore, if you look at it from a “family” point of view and not as individuals, that ratio widens even further to: 25% Republican / 75% Democrat.

The self loathing liberal pure ignorance, and duped stupidity? It is mind blowing!!!

You grandbaby nicoliar are a completely foolish duped moron... and tee pee too!
The lies that you morons eat like candy and vomit back out on these pages is an incredibly strange thing indeed!

Who said anything about republicans or Democrats…?

But pray tell, why is it that mentally addled conservatives always defend, side with and root for the ultra rich instead of backing their neighbors and other people of their own class…???

My neighbors and friends struggle with high taxes and high fuel prices.
They care not about taking on the responsibility of billions of dollars. They simply want to work and enjoy their families and their lives.
They DON"T suffer from terminal jealousy/envy, and do not want to punish those who happen to be very successful with money.
In other words, they are decent people.

Meanwhile the richest 85 people possess a combined wealth larger then that of 3.5 Billion people, probably including your " neighbors and friends."

Your "neighbors and friends" would not be struggling if the richest folks on the planet were not so greedy and paid decent wages and their share in taxes….

But you conservative morons just go ahead and take the side of the richest of the rich and maybe, if you are lucky, they will invite you to clean the toilets in their country club...

and the answer is.........shrink government, lower taxes, open up developement(keystone pipeline for instance) PUT PEOPLE TO WORK, and allow those who wish to move up in the world financially to have the opportunity to do so.
Duherrr!
Why do socialist morons feel that government is always the answer?

Just look how the obama administration has screwed the pooch over the last five years...
and, he has doubled the national debt in th process. The money has been spent and the results? Not much to show.
The problem is that we owe the money anyway. It will take decades to unwind the damage that obama and the liberals have done.

Suuuuuuure!

According to conservative morons, "the answer is" to let big business do whatever it wants, pollute as much as it wants and pay the workers as little as it wants…

Ronnie Reagan and bush the W were "screwing the pooch" long before President OBAMA's name became a household word, and yes, it will take us countless years to repair the damage Reagan and W caused, thankfully….

President OBAMA set the nation on the right course...

Only a complete and total moron like you would consider a $9 Trillion debt when the lying POS oblamer, took office to five years later, a $17.5 Trillion in debt as "on the right course"???
The proper way to have writen that would have been,'on the left course', you duped dope!

The Oxfam report discloses that--

The report says:

* Globally, the richest individuals and companies hide trillions of dollars away from the tax man in a web of tax havens around the world - it is estimated that $21 trillion is held unrecorded and off-shore.

* In the US, financial deregulation directly correlates to the increase in the income share of the top 1 per cent which is now at its highest level since the eve of the Great Depression.

* In Europe, austerity has been imposed on the poor and middle classes under huge pressure from financial markets whose wealthy investors have benefited from state bailouts of financial institutions.

Wealthy elites have co-opted political power to rig the rules of the economic game, undermining democracy and creating a world where 85 richest people own the wealth of half of the world's population.

And only a totally ignorant fool like you does not know that much of the $ 8.5 Trillion went to pay off bush the W's phony wars, his drug plan and to get the Nation out of the deep, deep economic hole were bush the W left us in…

But what can we expect from conservative right wing nuts like you…???

You've just described the oblamer clan. Just look at the top three in that list of yours... demorats!
And don't forget about Petrobras, jeffery immelt and his GE Corp.!!!
And that is EXACTLY how the demorats get their votes... they buy them from the duped and uninformed voters, why do you think that they give illegals every welfare program available???
And why do you think they want more illegals???

You fools better be careful! You keep going like this? You will get what you are asking for!
And you really believe that oblamer cares about you??? LMAO at you all!

Overall the entire population of the World is better off than we were 20, 50 or 100 years ago. Wealth is increasing world wide. China and India have developing middle classes, life expectancy is going up and all this is because of the free market. The people who really suffer in this world are those living under left wing tyrants. Just ask the people of Korea.

It is far worse than that Sam.........teepee truly wants to confiscate money from the wealthy in the same manner as the facist did back in the 30's.
and he wants to do it by spreading propaganda and inciting class warfare(duping voters).....just like....well just like our current potus.
I am not sure whom he expects to be the employers after all of the wealthy turn over their money......It won't be worth running a business/hiring folks if the government confiscates everyones profits
