Ahh , so you know that poor people eat more rubbish food along with drinking more soda and beer than rich people. If you know that then how come you know very little about climate change or is that just selective memory loss.
And who is keeping them poor.

Well I thought you would be smart enough to work that one out as well, so lets take America's highest value company, Apple. As part of their workforce they have like 30,000 bread n butter employees selling products for them and at least 2/3rds of those work in the US and only make about $30K a year.
Compared to Tim Cook who is worth over half a billion$ with stock options.
Then we have those Chinese factory workers making these products who also work like slaves making very little money. So who does that leave, just a few Apple execs who are very well off the rest don't get to share in any of the company's wealth.

To top that off, Apple bases its financial headquarters not in the USA but in Ireland so gets away with not paying it's proper share of tax in ALL the countries it operates in , it also pays its employees peanuts. Will you ever hear this on Fox news or within Republican ranks, nope not a whisper but they will scream loud about welfare fraud. But ignore the fact half of Walmart employees are on food stamps and it's people like yourself that keep defending this practice as acceptable, avoiding tax, paying peanuts and then tell us welfare causes all economic ills.

Corporate Greed, which you value as more of an entitlement than someone who just survives on food stamps. There is no point valuing a company that puts most of its employees in survival mode than paying them a fair salary. Any company that does is basically worthless & more of a burden to the country than a asset. That is the key cause of wealth shift.

Great article for "Climate Cultists"!
"While climate skeptics are denounced for mentioning “uncertainty,” the terms “uncertain” and “uncertainty” appear 173 times, while “error” and “errors” appear 192 times, in the 218-page chapter on climate models in the latest IPCC report released last September. As the IPCC admits,“there remain significant errors in the model simulation of clouds. It is very likely that these errors contribute significantly to the uncertainties in estimates of cloud feedbacks and consequently in the climate change projections.” The IPCC’s latest report rates the confidence of our understanding of clouds and aerosols as “low,” and allows that it is possible that clouds could cancel out most of the warming effect of greenhouse gases. If anything, our uncertainty about future climate change has increased with each new IPCC report."

Oh-oh! Volcanoes, not man melting glaciers!
A new study by researchers at the University of Texas, Austin found that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet is collapsing due to geothermal heat, not man-made global warming.

The study does not make the conclusion that the melting is due to geothermal heat and not to man-made global warming. That was from the Daily Caller, another conservative mouthpiece.The study said both geothermal and warmer seas were causing the melting. What do you suppose causes the warmer seas? Could it be global warming? Another question, How long has the geothermal activity been a factor? Was it possible that it was happening when the ice was deposited?

If they work at all, they are probably getting $1 million each from somewhere. Most likely they don't work.

Amy Carter?

She is a member of the board of counselors of the Carter Center that advocates human rights and diplomacy as established by her father.

Poor ole LordH has been sold the dream anyone can make it , just get off your a$$ and do it.
A simple slogan, but in reality you can only make it by coming into contact with a 1%'er to give you that break in the first place. So it doesn't matter if you are Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Elvis you need help somewhere along the way. With the shrinking wealth shift of the population your chances are less than 1 in 10,000 to make that happen just slightly better than winning the lottery. 55 + years ago it was a chance of 1 in 20 that's a huge difference.
That same corporate machine which has deniers squawking their interests thinking they are protecting their own interests but all they are protecting is the status quo. A system that is designed to make the poor even poorer.
