    Just as Global Warming has been recast as a politically more saleable Climate Change, Poverty is now being recast as Income Inequality for the same purpose. With more people escaping poverty than ever before, it has become necessary to find new ways of pushing for a worldwide Socialist agenda.

    What, exactly, is wrong with "income inequality?" It is popularly reported that a tiny percentage of people own a large percentage of the world's wealth, but so what? Much of that wealth is ownership of companies they started which have contributed immensely to the world's economy. Just who would be better off if Jeff Bezos didn't own all that Amazon stock?

    Is income inequality really a problem in itself? Or is it just a way of appealing to people's baser emotions (e.g., envy) for political purposes?

    So you're OK with Trump's base's wages stagnating?

    Because that's what's been happening the past decade.

    of course it's a problem when Jeff Bezos is making millions of dollars a day , paying very little in taxes and has employees who are on welfare.

    I’m glad we’re all tired of business visas, off-shoring, illegals and neighborhoods that are too violent to allow for a good education.

    Back 30 years ago, while I was getting military pay as an E-5 I wasn't out there whining about how I was making a dollar a day while working to keep this country safe. No, I was working to better my skills so one day, I could find a better paying job. It just so happened when I turned 32 and was offered a job working avionics on the Saudi Arabian Air Force F-15s. I had to leave my country, leaving behind the constitutional protections, understanding that I needed to follow the law of the land. After 5 1/2 years of tax free income, and heavy investments, I now am in the top 10% income earners. Anyone, can do it, but it does take work, and a belief that what God's gift to you, can also make you wealthy. I have enlightened others to the secret of fortune making, but too many people would rather see the inside of the rectum, than go out and have to work...

    "income equality" is a Marxist term.

    Fuck Marx, he never worked a day in his life.
