and you believe that the poor deserve a free cell phone?????And you don't believe that evil 1% is receiving more than everyone else combined?
Let see.... the way i would see it.And you don't believe that evil 1% is receiving more than everyone else combined?
Will that make up for being poor?
Sure, why not? It's certainly not going to break the bank.
The problem with that is that employer profits are not what creates jobs. Demand beyond current production ability is what creates jobs. So, we cannot simply say "They have money they should create jobs." We need to address how to adjust our economy in ways that help to create more demand. That is how you will get businesses to increase supply.why not bang on the job creators that aren't creating new jobs despite record corporate profits?
Just out of curiosity, who do you think are these people who don't pay any income tax?The evil 1% are receiving from the blood sweat and hard work of the 53% .... right along with the 47% who pay no federal income tax and of who are part of whom the OP is speaking about.
Strange.. But here are the figures of current full time employed AmericansA poor rationalization for allowing upward mobility to vanish from the nation, A few trinkets and appliances do not equal prosperity, long term job security and wages that keep pace with inflation do. We no longer have that at all and it started vanishing about the time Reagan began his war on the poor.
How does that refute what I said? The fact that inflation adjusted wages have remained flat for the working class for decades is not even up for debate, it is a fact.Strange..

Maybe you should look at the FACTS!!!
1) That still means one more person could get a job IF they wanted!The OP is an example of not one ounce of objective thinking was required to start this thread and the above post is just a glaring example of not acknowledging the real world.AND WHY would I want to trade places with people that CAN get a job!And yet not one of you would trade places with someone who's poor and trying to seek a job to raise their family.
I read my local paper and there are plenty of jobs for those people that are willing to work!
$150 a day picking Apples in Washington!
$7/hr washing dishes in Florida..

Healthmyths made this claim earlier in another thread. He is basically calling all unemployed people lazy.
But then there's facts:
Vital Signs: 4.5 Unemployed for Each Job Opening
Vital Signs: Four Unemployed for Each Job Opening - Real Time Economics - WSJ
It's a fact, that the lack of jobs has lead to an increase in poverty. So instead of banging on the victims, why not bang on the job creators that aren't creating new jobs despite record corporate profits?
The problem is that the poor do not suffer enough to suit themYou know what else is amazing about this stupidity? The poor getting "richer" is apparently a bad thing...? Is our goal supposed to be to make sure the poor get poorer? And even after all that, are we supposed to, for some reason, simply ignore the fact that the poor are still, in fact, poor?
I think your granddaughter is not telling you about a little business she has on the side, if she's raking in that much money.My granddaughter wouldn't trade places with one of those stupid people who work that's for sure. With all her bennies, she's raking in almost $5,000 a month.
Only speaking for self here, but being one of the poor who has pulled themselves out of poverty, going backward to trade places would not be very smart.And yet not one of you would trade places with someone who's poor and trying to seek a job to raise their family.
Hey - we don't live in the slums anymore! We're just live below poverty, which means we have to live out on the street or if we're lucky, we have to starve ourselves to pay for our rent!Wow
You know you are in trouble when conservatives try to console you by telling you that your standard of living is better then the 1900s
