Horowitz is my source for much of this stuff. He's on C SPAN and the Mark Levin Show from time to time discussing the racket that is now our education system and the organized criminals that are now our teacher's unions.

0failurecare is a similar hijacking of our healthcare system by liberals. Now they can tax and ration care to ensure they and their idiot relatives can get care at my expense.

barock and the surrendercrats are quickly reversing that trend. The next elections will not be kind to the traitorcrats who spy on their own citizens, while letting muslim savages run amok in the Mideast.

As you've driven Conservatives from college professorships, the students get dumber and the costs keep rising at double and triple the CPI every year. The views have become narrow-minded and anti-American. This is because you infuct everything you touch. Most colleges would be bankrupt if they didn't have sallie mae keeping them afloat. That's the next liberal bubble to burst after municipal pensions that are bankrupting liberal-run states.

A recent Yale study shows far fewer young adults aged 18-29 identify themselves as Democrats than did in 2008.
Few ran to the Republican party but a swing of 30 points in 5 years indicates if either party is a dying breed it would the Democrat party.

A strong economy means better pay.
Then higher minimum wage will just mean a stronger economy. Probably will because a better paid work force will consume more and thus drive sales and from that you get corporate expansion.

But the 70% increase is corporate pay for the CEO has not made the economy stronger. All you get is competition among the elite for who CONTROLS the economy, so they bid up the PRICE of resources. This just makes it harder for the working classes to get by as those costs drive up the price of basic goods and services.

You seem to still be trying to push the 'trickle down' theory that was proven totally bogus back in the Reagan era. Must be some sort of brain defect. Are you by any chance a conservative?

So your argument is that the market system has failed to restrain prices, and somehow giving the working classes a decent wage for their work will somehow create a monopoly power where they can raise prices without resistance from the consumers? Or you are saying that the poor will spend unwisely once they have enough to eat (frugally)? Either way you are not in touch with Econ 101. According to you, having them work for free should lower prices until they can afford them!!!!

Thanks for exposing your warped perception of micro-economics.

Business owners don't keep 99% simply because they want to. Businesses are financed in many ways. Most small businesses are financed with a personal guaranty of the owner who loses his house if it fails.

Many people with business ideas have no capital, just lots of energy like Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg. You put them together with someone that has some money to invest, like Eduardo Savarin, and they start to hire people. You think it's fair for the next 100 people that start working at facebook to be entitled to their billions by simply walking in the door? This is an extreme example.

Most ventures fail. A large percentage just survive. A tiny fraction become Exxon and GE. Today, liberals would stymie Rockefeller and Edison from helping our society progress. You should change our mantra from progressive to regressive.

You ever have a bank call you and tell you there's not enough money in the payroll account?

It's no wonder you ignorant liberals have no clue how much harm you've caused with 0failurecare.

Bernie Marcus, one of the founders of Home Depot, said recently that they would not be able to start the company under todays rules, red tape, useless regulations, govt hassles and so on. Our own govt puts up roadblocks to hiring, opening a biz, running a biz, red tape, stupid rules and then they want 35% of the profits, if any, as IRS Taxes at the end of the year.

There is a drive to make higher 'barriers to entry' for business but it is being driven by the mega-rich and the control of markets by the 'mega-corporate' entities. The problem is that they have also cornered the poltiical sphere by making it too expensive for 'grass roots' to run so the result is a fascism run by a few oligarchs.

But you too miss the point that too much 'income disparity' is the death knell of economies. The hype about 'take from the poor, and give to the rich' anti-robin hood just illustrates that the typical elite is King John (or his tax collector).

Too bad that these bozo's don't understand simple economics and are willing to distort the economy until it breaks.

<quoted text>Pssst, moron....When you raise the minimum wage, your costs go up.
Yup. That is the short view. And the CEO may take home a few million less. But the long term is that this is like giving 99% of the blood of a body to the liver and starving the brain, muscles, kidneys, etc. It sounds good to the liver which then gets fat and dies off along with the rest of the body because of starvation of the OTHER parts of the body.
Liberals R Defective wrote:
<quoted text>You pass that along to the consumer, ie,
By that logic, the CEO and the investors should double prices so that they can get richer. Hmmm. Something REALLY stupid about that logic. Mostly that you cannot just raise prices. Microeconomics shows that your income increases while you are in the area of demand higher than supply. But once you price things beyond the means of the workers, you just lose money. Not hard to understand, but you seem to fail to grasp it.
Liberals R Defective wrote:
<quoted text> How many poor people have you worked for in your wretched life?
Mostly I have worked for companies. If that company is built from $10 investments from one million people or $10M dollars from one investor doesn't make a bit of difference to ME. My wages are what keeps ME spending and therefore the economy rolling.

Recessions and depressions are mainly because the WORKING classes are not working, because the rich has sucked the life out of the economy or wasted it in ponzi schemes (leveraged loans, buying stocks on margin, etc). Wiht nothing being produced, the economy is in a moribund state. The NEED for a strong economy is to put money in the hands of those who need it to live (i.e the working consumer) NOT the fat cats.
Liberals R Defective wrote:
he rich got that way by not doing stupid or insane things over and over.
The rich generally get rich by having rich friends and relatives that will give them backing to start up companies. Or they inherit money themselves. Even though nine out of ten tries, the business fails, eventually they will come up with a winner. If not, they can go into poltics like GWB. Have you ever played Monopoly? Good thing it is just a game. Trying to make an economic theory based on it (the rich get richer) just goes to show you up as an idiot.

Odd thing. Having a dozen bastard children and getting hooked on drugs seems to be more prevalent among the super rich than the poor. But you aren't debating facts. Just your 'view' of the world as 'us' vs 'them'. "It's them that do the bad things" (Jingo).

The same thing can be said of many conservatives.My favorite quote on this is..

"An intellectual is a man who takes more words than necessary to tell more than he knows." Dwight D. Eisenhower

but you haven't shown that I am an intellectual or that I have said more than I know, so it doesn't apply. Keep trying. If you can form some substance to go with your rhetoric, you might get an edge.
