    World Income Inequality

    Ok, I'll hear no more bitching about the rich paying their fair share.

    America's poorest 5% are among the richest 30% of humans in the world.

    Capitalism has done you all well. Stop the envy. Stop the jealousy.

    If you are dirt poor in America, you're still among the richest 30% of humans on the planet. If you are middle class in America, you're among the richest in the world.

    This argument from the left is PURE envy, not necessity.

    That graph actually shows the income disparity in America is extremely irrelevant compared to Brazil, India, China.......nations our left wing want us to creep slowly more in line with.

    So, under status quo American capitalism, our rich are filthy rich. Our middle class are filthy rich by global standards, but not as rich as their rich neighbor. And our poor are among the top 30% of wealth earners in the world, but must look up to their fellow rich countrymen.

    Our left is pissed at this situation for some reason.

    everything is relative.
    Comparing the USA to an African country for the purpose of this thread is asinine at best.
    Deceptive is more like it.

    Success by racing to the bottom.

    By that logic, the people in the other 49 states shouldnt' give a shit about what happens on Wall Street.

    What if the rest of the world began demanding WE, all Americans, forfeit our wealth to them out of fairness? I bet our "poor" wouldn't like being called the filthy top 30% who need to take care of Africa and India, right?

    OWS- pure envy.

    So the top 30% of wealth earners in the world aren't indebted to the bottom 30%? It's a global marketplace. Shouldn't the UN force all Americans to forfeit more to the global cause?
