    Davos elite: Capitalism has widened income gap | General Headlines | Comcast

    We are headed down the toilet,we are slowly being headed toward socialism.

    DAVOS, Switzerland — A four-year economic crisis has left societies battered and widened the gap between the haves and have-nots, financial leaders conceded Wednesday — with one suggesting that Western-style capitalism itself may be endangered.
    Some 2,600 of the world's most influential people came for the forum this week amid increasing worries about the global economy and social unrest due to rising income inequalities.

    The Obama regime WANTS the free enterprise system to fail.

    The Obama regime WANTS the United States to become a Euro-style economic and socialist nightmare.

    Government intervention is destroying "capitalism", and has changed the word "capitalism" into a derisive, negative, divisive monster that must be destroyed.

    Why do we always hear about the "rich getting richer", when there are THOUSANDS of "rich" people who have lost EVERYTHING in the past five years or so?

    Why do we always ridicule and point fingers at those people who invested their money in a timely, wise, and often-times "right place, right time" manner, profited from their investments, and are now considered to be one of the "evil wealthy"?

    Last time I checked, we all still have the freedom to do whatever we want with our money, as long as it is legal. We can invest our money, spend our money, gamble with our money, earn more money, lose money, give our money away, loan our money to family and friends, etc.

    It's not failing, it is working as intended. Every working person in America is now willing to settle for less and happy just to have a stinking dead-end job.

    That's how Democrats intend it to work.

    Yet again another call for equality in treatment or outcome when it benefits a person or their chosen cause, but no problem treating someone else unequally to get to that goal...

    Disgusting

    Equality or inequality in OUTCOME does NOT need to be addressed, unless you want to get rid of freedom all together

    Inequality does need to be addressed and soon. The potential for social upheaval is becoming too large to ignore, especially since it is now clear that the leaders of the finance industry are too powerful to bring to justice for any kind of fraud or manipulation.
