How many times do I have to say I want to cut them all off welfare, the rich and the poor? The difference is that I want to start with the most expensive welfare deadbeats, the rich who are getting $1.3 trillion dollars per year. That's 150% more welfare to the rich than all social programs total. You think we can fix our finances by stealing granny's social security and keep feeding cash to the pampered rich..it will not work. Granny's SS isn't nearly enough savings. Starve all the baby mommas-- still not enough, cut out food stamps --still not enough, stop all unemployment compensation-- still not enough, throw the disabled veterans out on the street -- still not enough. Also, when you do that, the pampered rich will only take more. We have to put them all on their own, starting with the most expensive deadbeats, the rich. Speaking of trees---

So what exactly is this welfare to the rich you speak of?

Tax breaks, tax exemptions, subsidies, incentives, depletion allowances, government contracts (like the $700 toilet seats and $500 dollar hammers), write offs, "contributions" to congress, etc. It is so extensive that its full extent is hidden and mostly unknown. Congress attempted to give away almost $1 trillion dollars to mega agro-business in just one day during last week's session. It temporarily failed, but they will sneak it back in more slowly. Yes, there are huge amounts of money being given to deadbeats for nothing. Most of them are already rich.

So when you refer to "the rich", you're actually referring to Corporate America, those companies like Exxon that receive tax breaks, subsidies, etc..., eventhough they report quarterly profits of $24B?

"It is also time for government to do its part to help make it easier for entrepreneurs, inventors,
and workers to grow their businesses and thrive in the global economy. I am calling on Congress
to immediately begin work on corporate tax reform that will close loopholes, lower the overall rate,
encourage investment here at home, simplify taxes for America’s small businesses, and not add a dime
to the deficit. Moreover, to further assist these companies, we need a comprehensive reorganization
of the parts of the Federal Government that help businesses grow and sell their products abroad. If
given consolidation authority—which Presidents had for most of the 20
th
century—I will propose to
consolidate six agencies into one Department, saving money, and making it easier for all companies—
especially small businesses—get the help they need to thrive in the world economy" What do you think "get the help" means? Now, really think about that before you answer. Because I'm thinking a "donor list" might be coming your way.

Walmart didn't discriminate against Paula having diabetes. The entire Walmart stores are made up of obese black women with attitudes.

Yes, corporations are owned by people. The MAJOR stockholders in corporations like Exxon , GE, etc. are usually rich. They pay lobbyist to pay congressmen to pass laws giving the corporations laws that stifle competition, excuse taxes, award no bid government contracts , award US government owned natural resources and mining, drilling, fracking, etc rights for a paupers penance and even give cash incentives and tax rebates for not even paying taxes in the first place,. Example: USA owned cedar timber in Alaska is being sold for $1.18 (yes, ONE dollar eighteen cents) per thousand board feet.( I was paying over $1800 per thousand board feet of cedar 20 years ago). While the rich and well connected rob us totally blind, the public's attention is focused on the expense of disabled veterans , granny's social security and yes baby mommas. We cannot get control of our finances without being honest about what is really happening to our money.

At almost 39 thousand dollars a minute PROFIT, I don't think they give a ratsazz about "employee attitude".
