It isn't possible to raise up the poor WHILE the vast amount of wqealth is being held by a tiny minority--and that minority is not creating jobs.
<quoted text>
Boy have you got yourself all twisted backwards.
The rags to riches "scenario" is a world wide human condition reality that few make it to the "riches" part.
It has ALWAYS been this way and it ALWAYS will be this way. No matter what the economical or the political situation in ANY country on Earth, this reality holds true.
EVERY society has poor people. EVERY society has rich people.

YOU propose "raising up" the poor by pulling the wealthy down and redistributing their wealth - which means you GIVE money to the "poor" that is TAKEN from the wealthy. That has NEVER worked in ANY society on Earth it has been tried.

YOU propose that YOU make the decision of WHO "gets" to be wealthy based solely in what YOU think is fair". You are wrong. A person's ultimate "status" as a rich person or a poor person, is to be left up to the individual themselves and their own ability to achieve it - IF they choose to do so.

You fall for the age old trap of misunderstanding reality, or you are an intentional mouthpiece promoting that misunderstanding and deceit.
YOU bash capitalism because it unequally and naturally sorts the rich from the poor, in favor of a system that "equalizes" and forces the people into shared mediocrity and misery.

Buying at tiffany's doesn't help the economy, twit. That's the rich paying the rich.
One of the first things the rich do is find ways of not paying taxes. That is not paying even their fair share, much less is proportion to their elevated status in terms of civil perks.

Well gee Einstein, if there is a corrupt tax code system that has created so damn many lopp holes and shelters for one's monies, than of course they will "work the system" to their best advantage. DUH !!!

If you force legislated extortion on them, guess what happens to their "wealth" then dummy? They invent a better mouse trap and figure out ways to "shelter" it even more. HELLO !!!!
If you INCREASE their tax burden, guess what they do then Einstein? They PASS IT ON TO THOSE BELOW. Guess who pays them dumbass? The middle class and the poor.

If you are going to have an income tax at all, make damn sure it is actually fair - and the ONLY fair tax, is structured like sales tax - EQUAL PERCENTAGE RATES FOR ALL.

It's not moot at all. If they are getting governmental preference, they should be paying for it--and not in bribes.

Hardly true. Actually most inner cities have FD's much closer to them than affluent suburbs do.

thte fact is that the wealthy get teh same amount of gov't as everyone else. in fact, it ccould be argued that through gov't programs for the poor, they actually get more.

That's because the rich don't want those ugly stations in their neighborhoods. But when one of those stately manors
need a call, they are going to get a faster response and more personnel/equipment.

The rich have far more influence on the government, and reap greater benefits. To say otherwise is to live in denial.

How would htat happen if they don't have those ugly stations in their neighborhood? Seems against logic, doesn't it?

Everyone can participate in the political process to the degree they wish to. it does not take money to do so.

Please elaborate on how the wealthy have this influence others cannot have for me...

Wealthy neighborhoods are usually near poorer neighborhoods; the help have to live somewhere.

Yeah, a guy making $5K a year has the same access to government officials as the CEO of a corporation. Not even you believe that.

Interesting.
I get phone calls from one of my senators about once a month and actually talk with him. I email many government officials often and actually get some back too.
I sure as hell ain't rich son.

Just like Woodtick said,(paraphrased) you get what you put into it. Most folks just sit back and whine and cry about things and never lift a finger to try and change their position or state of affairs. When was the last time you spoke with or emailed a US Senator or Representative on capitol hill? Did it concern the economy, or Iran, or USFS acts and actions, or grey wolves or did you just whine about same sex legislation?

Why can't the 5K guy participate in the political process as much as the CEO?

Who affects the party more, the gal working from the grassroots, being a delgate for the party, helping make the platform, helping choose the candidates they endorse, or the guy who sends a check to the cndidate that the former helped pick?

Finally! Somebody stepping up!!!!!

Washington (CNN)-- The suspect in a shooting at a conservative Christian policy group in Washington faced attempted murder and other new charges on Wednesday, including a terrorism count not previously sought by prosecutors in any case.

Floyd Lee Corkins II, who previously pleaded not guilty to other charges related to the August shooting that wounded the building manager at the Family Research Council, is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday on the new allegations included in a superseding indictment.

They include attempted murder, aggravated assault, second-degree burglary -- all while armed -- and three counts of possession of a firearm during a crime of violence.

Corkins also was charged with committing an act of terrorism while armed, which had never previously been prosecuted.

It about time when is he going to come out that he was abused by the pedophile that mentored him and gave him whiskey as a child.
