The 99% is only mad at the 1% because they aren't rich too.
Michael Texeira (el 04/11/14 a las 12:22 am)
It's amazing how many people commenting here clearly know absolutely nothing about modern economics, nor the state of the current wealth distribution. Anyone who thinks that people who produce nothing of value for humanity (people who make money off of speculation [essentially by driving up prices...actually hurting the majority], people who make money off of usury, people who retain money by avoiding paying their share of the taxes that pay for the roads and services that they benefit from) deserve extreme wealth more than people who provide vital services for humanity (teachers, farmers, sewage workers, water treatment personnel, etc.) has a serious mental problem. Stop drinking the Fox News Kool-Aid. Theft is, at its roots, the taking of something which doesn't belong to you. McDonalds makes huge profits partially by paying their employees so little that full-time employees qualify for benefits. They essentially have shifted the burden of paying their work force partially onto the tax payer. Monsanto makes its money partially by suing farmers whose fields have, through no fault of their own, become contaminated with Monsanto's patented seeds. In a sane society, these actions would not be allowed. McDonalds, relying on its labor force for its business would pay them enough that their employees could rely on their employers for meeting their basic needs. Even slave owners supplied their work force with places to live and food to eat. McDonalds gives less to its employees than slave owners gave to their slaves. Here's some interesting facts. When a loan is issued, the bank essentially creates that money from nothing. The money comes into existence at the point the loan is issued. This means that the money doesn't really exist. Money is supposed to be a stand in for actual valuable resources. So, when a bank loans you money, they are really giving you access to real resources that the bank itself possesses. In this case, the bank doesn't possess any resources except that of the public perception of the bank's stability...its image. It costs the bank nothing to issue you a loan. It merely appears on a balance sheet. No actual work is done to produce this money. If, however, you cannot pay this loan back, they will take the objects that you have spent actual labor in acquiring, such as a house. They give you imaginary money and take real assets back. The bank always wins. There is a common conception that the poor have just as much opportunity to be rich as the rich do. Every study done on the matter, however, shows that it is much more difficult to rise out of poverty than this conception would imply. The jobs available in low-income areas often have little opportunity for advancement. They are dead-end jobs. Also, because competition for limited work is often quite fierce in low-income areas, employers can often get away with paying less money than a living wage (which in a compassionate world would be unthinkable), forcing people to take on multiple jobs in order to make ends meet. This, of course, increases the competition for jobs. In the end, the more motivated and intelligent people in low-income areas may often have more than one job while many people can't find a single job. This lack of gainful employment creates the need for alternate economies, and so gangs and drug dealers, pimps and prostitutes find a niche there. Most importantly, the stress of being poor increases ones susceptibility to illness, psychological disorders, substance abuse, and a host of other ills. A sane species would realize that poverty hurts everyone and wouldn't think twice about taking money away from those who have more than they can ever spend to remove a social problem which causes crime and other symptoms which spill over into everyone's lives. We, however, are not a sane species. We are a species of people who are adept at ignoring facts and believing what is repeated rather than what the evidence supports. We are amazing at rationalizing our beliefs in order to avoid cognitive dissonance, and exceptionally good at shutting down empathy so that we can use our iPhones and drink our lattes in peace while the mentally disabled stumble around us, homeless and hopeless. In these last bits, I'm as guilty as anyone, because the actual depth of daily human suffering on this planet is so astounding in its intensity that it almost paralyzes me. So, I shut down and distract myself with the internet, or video games, or some other activity designed to numb me to the pain and sorrow of billions of people trapped in war zones, kept in abusive relationships, incarcerated for victimless crimes, forced to work for almost nothing in companies they hate, being evicted from property that will end up sitting vacant simply because they don't have little slips of paper, watching their communities be torn down in order to build another place for people to buy things that they don't need, watching their children die of malnutrition or disease, getting forced into militias in war-torn nations, and worse. So, if you think that the 99% is mad because they desperately want to live opulently while others starve, all that means is that you're so disconnected from basic mammalian empathy that you can't even imagine what it might look like in others. Congratulations, you're a sociopath.

Millionaires deserve their money. They worked hard for it.

Someone working at the register of McDonalds shouldn't be making as much money as the CEO.

just in everyone who actually supports shitty rich people doesnt realise that a good amount of poor people have college degrees but still get low income jobs. that the minimum wage was created for people to be able to live off it.

I'm the son of a CEO of a small legal firm in Texas. My dad paid for his own education, sacrificed ALL of his money by starting companies(3, one of them Ivita, look it up) and worked 14 hour days for most of his life. He deserves his money, fuck you assholes who claim that the rich don't earn their money. I'm not saying the rich shouldn't give back, but it shouldn't be by way of taxes. Taxes are bullshit, people don't even see the use of it anyways. Seriously, sit your ass down, and think about what you see your taxes do. Public school, hospitals, and roads are just about all you come in contact with daily. Public schools are shit, healthcare is a joke, and roads where I live are too fucking small, we don't even have bike lanes! Taxes are so high, not to mention complex. The tax code is a thousand pages- no shit. Please for the love of god, do not believe the rich should be taxed more, it doesn't benefit you if we are! Don't even get me started on increasing minimum wage either... dense mother fuckers are leading this nation. Thank god we have so much wealth. hmm thanks rich people.

Honestly, I don't think there should be a tax just for people with more money. Why should someone have to pay their hard earned money just because they have more? It's like forcing someone to give to charity. It's a nice thing to do, but you shouldn't be forced. And it's just the rich people? Yeah, not everyone worked hard for their money. Some people had it given to them. But there are some people out there who really did work for their money, and just because they have more shouldn't be a reason for them to give it up.

"What do we have?!" "Most of the money!" "What do we want?!" "The rest of it!" Yep. Sounds like politicians to me! XD
