    How did these "greedy" corporations steal anything? They have to purchase everything they consume.

    I was responding in sarcasm to the quoted post. Re read in context. ( And I apparently made the same mistake!)

    Please help me understand how I was supposed to note the "sarcasm" here. I am a newbie here. How was this not your post? Thanks.

    You seem not to be following the conversation at all. For example, you keep arguing with me about a point that I agree with. I already told you that. Someone argued most terrorism is over economic disparity. I said that is ridiculous, particularly since most terrorism is committed by Muslim extremists.

    So, given that I think it's stupid that someone argued that most terrorism is over economics, when I said "Maybe Allahu Akbar means feed the people you greedy wealthy capitalists," how could you not recognize that as sarcasm?

    what are you talking about? Jesus wasn't a socialist? he cared for the least. he was given crap for wearing too much perfume to his death because of it's cost and how many it could have helped or fed. what do you call such a person? a capitalist?

    Do you understand that socialism is government? Where did Jesus advocate government do those things?

    why if corporations have been raking in major profits for the last 40 or more years as all others wages go down, should anybody worry about corporations paying more taxs? not too mention the billionaires investing don't pay taxes on their winfalls because they hide the earnings, lobby congress so they don't have to or just launder the money. you corporate lovers are killing yourselves.
