    I'm starting a charity for job creators.

    Works like this. We solicit donations, and then hand the proceeds out (in cash) to the richest people in America. They take the money, and of course, make jobs with it.

    The richer the person, the more they get. Basically, we'll take the 500 richest in the nation and apportion the charitable donations based on their individual wealth - if rich person A has twice as much as rich person B - they will get twice as much from our charity.

    How much are you willing to donate?

    Well I am not willing to donate a dime to those assholes, but I am going to donate some rep to you. Fantastic metaphore and directly to the point of the sheer stupidity of worshiping the rich.

    Thanks for the compliment, but what metaphor?

    Our nation needs jobs - but the job creators do not have the money to make the jobs. So we need to give them some money so they can make them jobs!


    Simple as that.



    BTW - what credit card charges 3.5% interest? The national debt is better compared to home loans than credit cards.

    Ahh if it were so simple as the simple minded.

    Sadly it's not.

    There are trillions of dollars in cash and capital being held by "rich employers".

    What this country lacks is an atmosphere for appropriate investment not just today but into the future.
    And it's that atmosphere that Obama has impeded since his election to office.

    It depends on which rich we are talking about. I won't donate to the Hollywood rich or the music icons (who btw, the left adore) those such people create very little jobs. If we wanted to start a national program where we provide capital for businesses to hire, well, all we really need to do is get out of their way and they will do it themselves.

    Very very few GOP voters support the rich, instead we support business and hope to be among the rich someday.

    Right there is the problem...magical thinking. They'll never let you in. Oh sure... you can have a modicum of success, perhaps even become a millionaire. But if you think you have a snowball's chance in HELL of becoming a Koch Brother from another mother, sitting at $25B... you're delusional. If that's the way ALL of you feel... then that's the problem with our country.

    The stock market has doubled since Obama took office.

    We have had 7 straight quarters of GDP growth.

    We have had 19 straight months of public sector job growth.

    The economy is recovering, and it is bad news for Republicans.

    They won't be able to use your bullshit excuse anymore.

    Exactly how much more do we need to worship the rich for them to spend the capital back into the system that has made them so well off?
