    Today on my way to lunch I passed a homeless guy with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money."

    Once in the restaurant my server had on a necktie that read "Obama 08".
    When the bill came I decided not to tip the server and explained to him that I was exploring the Obama redistribution of wealth concept. He stood there in
    disbelief while I told him that I was going to redistribute his tip to someone who I deemed more in need - the homeless guy outside. The server angrily
    stormed from my sight. I went outside, gave the homeless guy $5 and told him to thank the server inside
    as I've decided he could use the money more. The homeless guy was grateful. At the end of my rather unscientific redistribution experiment I realized the
    homeless guy was grateful for the money he did not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he earned even though Obama says the
    actual recipient deserved money more.
    I guess redistribution of wealth is an easier thing to swallow in concept than in practical application. It’s great for the deadbeats but not so great for
    those that work.

    You seem fine with sending the manager of the resturants money to Haliburton.

    why do you think they are any less a redistribution of peoples funds?

    To take tax dollars and give them over and over and over again to corporations who have been proven to RIP US OFF is redistribution of wealth.

    It is no less so.

    You people just like to live in some fantasy world.

    KMAN didn't give somebody's elses money to the bum, he gave his money to the bum.

    We don't give tax dollars to corporations we take tax dollars from corporations.

    Well, at least until the democrats passed the bailout bill.

    the gvt takes ALL of our tax dollars and REDISTRIBUTES THEM to someone or something else, to deny such is pretty silly.

    The problem is overspending....the trillion plus dollar bailout that we gave to financial institutions this year IS MORE THAN WHAT WE COLLECTED from every citizen in this country, in individual income taxes during the same yearly period.

    let that sink in for a minute...

    corporations don't pay taxes. you and i pay their taxes when we purchase their product. yo-bama can raise corporations taxes and they will just raise the price of their product or service.

    To repetedly give huge contracts to a corporation that has proven OVER AND OVER to take the money and not deliver the product is redistribution of our wealth.

    IT IS NOTHING ELSE.

    Straight from the middle class to the mega CEOs
