Right wingers seem to be fools or Russian tools. Stop complaining about Taxes, right wingers. Nobody is making you work to pay taxes. If you feel you are paying too much in taxes, you must not be making enough. Find a better job. It really is that easy according to right wingers.
Left wingers seem to be fools or BLM tools. Stop complaining about Taxes, Left wingers. Nobody is making you work to pay taxes. If you feel you are paying too much in taxes, you must not be making enough. Find a better job. It really is that easy according to left wingers.
...haahahahahah--you fked up--the people making more $$$ are paying HIGHER taxes!!!!!!!
lol. The richest are asking to pay more taxes. Why are you so poor under our form of Capitalism?
I thought you twisted fucks said the uber wealthy avoid paying taxes via the tax code, loopholes, tax shelters, off shore accounts...etc etc.
Remember when Donny T only paid $750?
Make up your fucked minds please.
The richest don't mind pay more taxes. Not Rich enough?

There isn't a single person in the US (who isn't incarcerated) working a job involuntarily.

If you're working a job for less than you feel you are worth, that makes you a fool.
Well here is some simple logic for you. You ready? It is mathematically impossible for every or even most of these low wage workers to get a better paying job. Why? Because they don’t fucking exist. You do get that right? Higher paying jobs are few and far between.
If you have the skills the jobs are out there (hardly a week goes by without a headhunter calling me). If you don't have the skills that is on you.
It’s all about you, right?

In your deluded world everyone must have skills, and those without, well fuck them.
‘Individualism’ is a primary component to our nations founding.
Why would you ever think that wise people making wise decisions should be responsible for fools making foolish decisions?
How can you possibly reconcile such an ideology?
You beautifully enunciated what liberalism is all about: to save stupid people from the stupidity

......thank you--I've said it before --you can raise the minimum wage to 80$ an hour--and it won't be enough for these dumbasses because they don't know how to manage their $$$$ or life

Isn't that a tad hypocritical coming from a Libertarian/Anarchist?
No. Not at all. Why?
Isn't "fuck them" the mantra of Libertarians?

gipper is all about individualism...right up until he needs your cash to pay for his sack of weed and the rest of his foolish decisions...THEN he’s all about collectivism. He can’t be taken seriously.

I wonder if he pays more in taxes than he takes in benefits?

Frontline workers at 13 of the 20 top U.S. retail companies — including Walmart, Amazon, Kroger, among others — saw an average pay increase of just $1.11 an hour, or 10%, a new analysis by the Brookings Institution found. At the same time, those companies' profits increased 39% year over year, while their stock prices went up by an average of 33%.

“Compared to the windfall profits we've seen at the very big companies, by and large, their workers have seen very little of that actual profits,” Molly Kinder, a fellow at Brookings and author of the report, told Yahoo Money. “This is on top of wages that are often so low, they’re poverty wages. And these jobs, of course, are terribly risky.”

What’s even more bizarre about this, to me, is that impoverished republican voters are okay with this. Big Business can do no wrong!
You should be celebrating. A 10% raise is nothing to sneeze at. I'd take a flat 10% on my investments any day.

Hey asshole, all the big corporations backed your guy, Beijing Biden. Dems are locking down businesses, putting them out of business and putting many out of work. But Amazon profits are up ten fold.

So enjoy your new America, where giant multinational corporations make bank and the middle class disappears.
That has been happening under Trump and the Republican Party. Interesting to see if the Republicans in Florida attempt to do to the $15 minimum wage that voters passed what they did to the initiative that was passed to allow former felons to vote.

Capitalism isn't broken. People are.

Why don't these workers organize, pool their resources, and purchase stocks in their employer company? It's not illegal. And, if they get controlling shares, they can change the profit model/distributions to benefit them. A forklift driver can earn 1/4 Million a year if it is feasible. BUT, they MUST pay for those shares. They didn't take the risk to start that company. They should pay for the risk they have avoided to get the control and financial benefit they want.

Fair is fair.

You can take your democratic socialism (which is LITERALLY the same as communism, not one single material distinction) and go practice it in another country where they choose to be fucking commies.

We're not playing nice anymore, motherfucker.

Commies do NOT have the right to exist in America. DO NOT bring your communist shit twinkle-toed cocksucking here or we will exterminate you. PERIOD. Tell you goose-stepping buddies.

What a load of shit. Capitalism isn’t broken. Government has shut down half the businesses in this country. All the competition of Amazon is shut down, all thanks to Dems and their scamdemic.

Biden’s new cabinet is already full of corporatists that want to destroy the middle class and import cheap labor.
Capitalism is broken because there are no checks and balances on the power of big corporations. They are being allowed to get bigger and bigger. We need new anti-trust laws.

It is not communism to ensure that the power ofr big corporations are checked. Unbridled capitalism is not a desirable outcome.

Capitalism is not broken. People have forgotten how to build their future.

Employees should work together to purchase controlling interest in their employer. It will take many years to do so, but anything worth having is worth pursuing for as long as it takes

And as much as I hate anti-trust laws, I have to agree with you. We have seen how our very freedom itself is jeopardized by Google, Facebook, Other Big Tech assholes. They need to be decimated into 10 different companies.

If only that were the goal of democratic socialists.

It's not.

Don't kid yourself.

There is LITERALLY no material distinction between DemSoc and Commie. ZERO.

Where does capitalism say that average pay has to increase 39%, just because profits did?
A 10% increase in the last year, during this mess, is pretty good.
How much did pay increase in Cuba and Venezuela?
