No, greed is just a part of it. Zionism will and has already destroyed America.

Do you think it is greedy to not work, when you are able, and sit and receive unemployment, food stamps etc? Do you think it is greedy to go on disability at age 25 because your are overweight and don't take care if yourself? It is not right for people to do that and it is not right for the government to allow it. This is why western Europe is collapsing. Government assistance in those situations should only be temporary, a hand up not a hand out. I think it is greedy to take from average people who work hard everyday year after year, to support those who are lazy, greedy and feel we owe them.

Is it greedy to make more money than you and your gradkids can ever spend and still ship jobs to China to make a few dollars more?

The fact is that the Government must get money to these people somehow to keep the money flowing in the economy. If it were not for this re-distribution of money, there would be riots in the streets like in other countries around the world.

If the rich were supplying good paying jobs in America people would work and be proud of working. But the sad fact is that people can live a life just about as good not working as they can at a $11-12 an hour job. People used to get paid for thier productivity now they just get paid as little as possible. So just the system is set up to keep the money moving in the economy and since the rich are not paying people decent wages the government give more and more benefits to keep people from rioting in the streets.

So yes stop giving these people benefits, make them take low wage dead end jobs and watch America go up in smoke.

Giving them money is not sustainable. The reason they are rioting in Greece is because they can't take care of them any more. It is not the job nor the responsibility of the rich to provide . That is not how America became great. You want to be rich? Go make it happen. Giving people the same quality of life for sitting on their ass that people that work all day gave kills incentive for those who don't work, and angers those who do. America is all but gone. People like you and the way you think are to blame. The government is not in place to take care of you from cradle to grave.

The reason they are roiting in the street is because a few bankers in America figured out they could make a SHIT LOAD OF MONEY if they crashed the Greek economy. The debt crisis is designed to make a few rich people richer and have middle class working Greeks pay the bill.

And yes this will happen in America when enough bankers decide they can ull it off and live to tell about it.

And America became great when the top tax rate was 74%, go figure. Better not go figure because your tiny Fox News brain may explode.

Sounds like there is a disabled lazy ass food stamp collecting ass wipe posing about the big bad rich people who get up and go to work everyday.

Sorry, but the rich aren't the problem here. It's the lazy ass, the govt owes me everything people that's the problem. The fast of the matter is, you can't tax enough to get out of the debt this country has obtained. This country will have to work its way out of debt. So get off your lazy ass and get a job!! And if you can't find one, create one!!

Why do the democrats have to be do rude? Just reading the posts, I happen to agree with jonathon. But if I didn't I would not be rude and hateful. My parents taught me manners. The reason they are rioting in Greece is the government is taking away some entitlements. Ecsuse there is more money going out than coming in. Many feel that we are on the same path. Whether you agree or not, have some class and manners and debate like an adopt for goodness sakes.

The media and the Democratic Party have created a huge divide in America and bread hatred among its followers. They are taught that anyone without their beliefs is evil, racist, sexist or any other bad word they can come up with. Until they learn how to love instead of hate, nothing is going to change.

Are you saying that $32,200 is not a living wage? Is that what you're saying?

Not being rude. Calling it like it is. Sorry if I offended anyone, but I'm tired of people thinking govt, business and business owners owe the worker something. If you don't like the job, get another one. If you don't like the product, buy something else.

It's not govt's job to provide for people. It's the people's job.

I didn't whine about it when that's all I made. I went out and worked 2 more jobs. On certain days I'd work 8-5 at my day job, then I'd wait tables from 5:30-9:30, and then go bartend from 10pm-3am. But I guess I had the option to sit around and whine about my day job not paying enough. But you know what, I didn't...because I'm not lazy and I had the ability to provide for myself.
