1) People like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates have more because they contribute so much more! A liberal could be worth $50 billion too if he could invent something and sell a $trillion worth of it! Its far easier for an envious psycho liberal to encourage tax theft or flap his gums than to actually invent and market a product that helps raise our standard of living from the stone age to here.

2) Overall, the combined wealth of the 400 wealthiest people in America rose to $1.5 trillion according to the "Forbes 400" survey.

Private assets in America are worth $70 trillion (see debt clock). Governments at all levels own another $85 trillion mostly in land and buildings, 70 million single family homes are worth $12 trillion, autos are worth $1 trillion alone; so the top 400 own almost nothing to speak of.


3) 300 of the top 400 qualify as business owners so liberal tax violence toward them would , in effect, be stealing new jobs and products. This is the last thing we want in while in a great liberal recession.

4) the top 1% pay 38% of Federal taxes as it is. No nation (not even beloved socialist Europe) depends on the rich as much as America. This means no nation punishes itself by crippling its job creators as much as America does.

You're putting too much effort into it.

The truth is those who are protesting ARE the richest 1%. Because guess what if you could eat 6 consecutive meals, own more than two pairs of shoes, and have a change of underwear, you are the richest 1% of the world.

Im just sick and tired of these people who are blessed with so much acting like absolute children whining for more.

well need to pray and pray that people like Jobs and Gates want to give us more and more. That is how we got from the stone age to here. As a liberal you will lack the IQ to understand

1) Steve Jobs was liberal.

2) You're not very good at math. Divide $70 trillion by 315 million.

3) Liberal tax violence didn't stop them in the 50s.

4) Yep... we do depend on the wealthy more than just about any other country, because most of our peers have far lower wealth disparity -- which allows for more even taxation.

Allow me to simply ask but one question.


Why are most of us scientists center/left leaning?

If we ask Steven Hawkins where he falls?

Oh wait..

I entered the health care debate in response to a statement in the United States press in summer 2009 which claimed the National Health Service in Great Britain would have killed me off, were I a British citizen. I felt compelled to make a statement to explain the error.

I am British, I live in Cambridge, England, and the National Health Service has taken great care of me for over 40 years. I have received excellent medical attention in Britain, and I felt it was important to set the record straight. I believe in universal health care. And I am not afraid to say so.

Why do that? We can just go to the source of all wealth: God. And then we can work our butts off.

Steve Jobs didn't invent anything. He came up with concepts and marketed them. But Steve Wozniak invented the early Apples, Xerox invented the GUI, teams of people invented the iMacs, iPods, iPhones and iPads. I don't have a problem with this, I just like to point things out.

Meanwhile, oblivious to the author of this turd-sandwich of a post, Jobs was in fact a pot-smoking, Buddhist liberal. He must have "lacked the IQ to understand."

Ah well. Not the first example of profound RW logic fail.
