“Wealth distribution”...”Income inequality”...”The gap”...WTF does this even mean?​

I'll translate for you:

We must tear down America and make it into a communist country.

You're welcome
The Citizens of each State shall be entitled to all Privileges and Immunities of Citizens in the several States.

How "communist" according to the Right-Wing.

What is “wealth distribution”?
Do Lefties really believe that Father Government or some higher power is “distributing” or handing out wealth? It doesn’t make any sense that people make different decisions and choose different pathways in life which lead them to different levels of wealth?
We hear Lefties always whining about these things and I always wonder why. I can’t wrap my head around how my quality of life is different because my neighbor makes more than I do and or has accumulated more wealth than I have.
I’m hoping sealybobo and rightwinger and some of the other beggars will get in here and make sense out of it all.
Yes. From tax breaks that benefit the rich and shift the tax burden more on to us, or lead to cuts in social services and programs to turning a blind eye to illegal employers to allowing companies to move their operations overseas so ceo's, shareholders and consumers can benefit at the expense of American workers.

Kroger grocery company CEO Rodney McMullen cut COVID-19 hazard pay for food workers last year just months into the pandemic — then scooped up a record $22.4 million in compensation for himself, Bloomberg reported Thursday.
McMullen’s pay package was revealed Thursday in a regulatory filing. His compensation rose almost 6% from the prior year, padded by a bigger bonus, a salary hike and stock awards, Bloomberg noted. That was McMullen’s biggest take ever since he became CEO in 2013.

What other ways have the rich waged class warfare on us? If Kroger employees were unionized, that CEO wouldn't have gotten $22 million. He would have got $11 million and Kroger employers would get the other $11 million.


Another indoctrinated government school grad.


Here, in America, there is no perennial class of 'the rich.'

"...economic mobility. About 60 percent of the households that were in the lowest income quintile in 1999 were in a higher quintile ten years later. During the same decade, almost 40 percent of the richest households fell to a lower quintile. This is a nation where you can rise or fall. It is a nation where you can climb the economic ladder based not on who you are born to, or what class you are born into, but based on your talents, your passion, your perseverance, and the content of your character." https://imprimisarchives.hillsdale.edu/file/archives/pdf/2013_05_Imprimis.pdf
Tell that to the blue collar worker who worked for Ford or GM and made great pay but then his job was sent to Mexico or China.
The days when you could get out of high school, work at the plant for 40 years, let your wife stay home and raise 6 kids that you send to college, then retire at 65 are long gone and they will not return. The global market and automation has changed all of that. Let's face it, we had a huge advantage for decades because the rest of the world's manufacturing was decimated by WWII, but those days are gone.

Wealth distribution / re=distribution= Socialist Ideology BS

Not 1 Democrat wants to / will pay 1 more dime than they are paying now, none will 're-distribute' any of their wealth to Middle or lower Class Americans.

'Wealthy Paying Their Fair Share' = PROVEN 70% of tax increases on large companies are paid by Middle Class

'Won't Cost A Dime / Will Pay For Itself' = Liberal Progressive Socialist Democrat LIE

'People making over $400 won't pay a dime more' = LIE, it's really $200K ...uh, wait, it's really...."

Tell that to the 74.2 million who know the truth and voted for Trump.



Now....about Trump's economic miracle....



"He created perhaps the greatest economy in U.S. history before COVID-19. And now he's doing it again!
Who's gonna vote against that?
Remember the brilliant wisdom of Democratic strategist James Carville: "It's the economy, stupid."

The first time, Trump had to rebuild former President Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden's disastrous economy. Obama and Biden were even worse when it came to jobs. It took them four years to get unemployment below 8%. But after the start of the disastrous COVID-19 pandemic, when unemployment hit 14%, it took Trump only five months to get unemployment back under 8%.


Let's go back to GDP. Because economic growth is what really matters. That's how you create jobs. That's how you make Americans feel "better off." The Atlanta Fed is projecting the third-quarter GDP number released on Oct. 29 will be 34.6%. That would be the fastest quarterly economic growth in history. Even if the projection is high, even if the number comes in at 30%, or 27%, or 25%, it would still be the highest in America's history, by a wide margin.

But wait; it gets better. Trump achieved this miracle with a large portion of the country closed for business. Trump did it with deep-blue states such as California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Illinois and Michigan mostly locked down and closed for business for most of the quarter.

What if all those states had been open for business?


But it gets better. On Friday, the government announced U.S. core retail sales were up a stunning 9.1% year to year -- the greatest rise in America's history. Again, this happened while a dozen blue states were still mostly shut down. They didn't even have indoor dining in California and most of New York City in September.



Optimism of small-business owners climbed to an all-time high in September. Even more significant, the National Federation of Independent Business optimism index October reading of 204 points was the highest since January. That means small-business owners are the most excited and optimistic they've been since before the pandemic.
By the way, economists predicted this small-business optimism index would rise to between 99 and 102 in September. Instead, it doubled to 204, ..."

2022 is going to be a booming year for business. That won't help you in the midterms. And you can't see what's coming 3 years from now. If you could you would have seen the Great Bush Recession was coming before it came.

I will agree with that. And in a way, I approve. This planet is overpopulated so I'm glad we don't have an economy where every couple can afford to have 2 or more kids. So in this new normal I would expect fewer people having kids and people who would have liked to have 3 may only have 1 or 2.

Me? I didn't have any kids and I don't mind one bit. I have 4 nephews/niece. so they cost me $800 a year. That's plenty. And I'll get to go to all the baptisms when they all have kids. I love kids I just don't want one of my own.

My pontoon $27,000
Paddleboard $800
Quad $7500
E Bike $2500

And my fat 401K because I don't have to put any kids through college.

I'm kinda interested in freedom, liberty.

Not this:

The Democrat Party is now running on full-blown anti-white racism,
socialism,
infanticide,
opposition to free speech,
substituting illegal alien voters for the American citizenry,
support for rioters, arsonists, murderers, and anarchists,
accepting payment from Communist China for future considerations,
and anti-Semitism… the knuckle-dragging, atavistic pagan party.
And, perhaps you can offer your analysis of which Trump policy turned Americans against his policies.
Well.....you could if there were any.
Otherwise we're left with the theft of the election explanation.

What other ways have the rich waged class warfare on us? If Kroger employees were unionized, that CEO wouldn't have gotten $22 million. He would have got $11 million and Kroger employers would get the other $11 million.


Another indoctrinated government school grad.


Here, in America, there is no perennial class of 'the rich.'

"...economic mobility. About 60 percent of the households that were in the lowest income quintile in 1999 were in a higher quintile ten years later. During the same decade, almost 40 percent of the richest households fell to a lower quintile. This is a nation where you can rise or fall. It is a nation where you can climb the economic ladder based not on who you are born to, or what class you are born into, but based on your talents, your passion, your perseverance, and the content of your character." https://imprimisarchives.hillsdale.edu/file/archives/pdf/2013_05_Imprimis.pdf
Tell that to the blue collar worker who worked for Ford or GM and made great pay but then his job was sent to Mexico or China.
The days when you could get out of high school, work at the plant for 40 years, let your wife stay home and raise 6 kids that you send to college, then retire at 65 are long gone and they will not return. The global market and automation has changed all of that. Let's face it, we had a huge advantage for decades because the rest of the world's manufacturing was decimated by WWII, but those days are gone.
I will agree with that. And in a way, I approve. This planet is overpopulated so I'm glad we don't have an economy where every couple can afford to have 2 or more kids. So in this new normal I would expect fewer people having kids and people who would have liked to have 3 may only have 1 or 2.

Me? I didn't have any kids and I don't mind one bit. I have 4 nephews/niece. so they cost me $800 a year. That's plenty. And I'll get to go to all the baptisms when they all have kids. I love kids I just don't want one of my own.

My pontoon $27,000
Paddleboard $800
Quad $7500
E Bike $2500

And my fat 401K because I don't have to put any kids through college.


" This planet is overpopulated..."

Another of the false doctrines of the Left.

. "The entire world population could fit in the state of Texas and it’d only have the population density of New York City!
There are 6.8 billion people on Earth. Calculations show that if we wanted to make everyone in Earth live on a space that had the same population density as New York City, we could fit everyone in about 666,265 square kilometers, which is less than the size of Texas!.


Not only does that leave the other 49 United States open, but it leaves all the other countries clear and open, too. So, it is pretty safe to say that we have enough space, the entire world except Texas, to farm and ranch for our food supply.


Would water be a problem, though? It's calculated that we need 350 billion liters of water per day to properly hydrate 6.8 billion people. It seems like a lot, but the Columbia River alone could produce that amount in less than a day.

By the way, the Columbia River is the U.S.’s fourth largest river. So, again, that leaves the rest of the world’s water supply open and ready to serve. So, we’re not really overpopulated." The entire world population could fit in the state of Texas and it d only have the population density of New York City - OMG Facts - The World s 1 Fact Source

What is “wealth distribution”?
Do Lefties really believe that Father Government or some higher power is “distributing” or handing out wealth? It doesn’t make any sense that people make different decisions and choose different pathways in life which lead them to different levels of wealth?
We hear Lefties always whining about these things and I always wonder why. I can’t wrap my head around how my quality of life is different because my neighbor makes more than I do and or has accumulated more wealth than I have.
I’m hoping sealybobo and rightwinger and some of the other beggars will get in here and make sense out of it all.
Yes. From tax breaks that benefit the rich and shift the tax burden more on to us, or lead to cuts in social services and programs to turning a blind eye to illegal employers to allowing companies to move their operations overseas so ceo's, shareholders and consumers can benefit at the expense of American workers.

Add up federal, local, state, fees, fines, etc., and see how half your income goes to these folks:

By the way, Trump only had 2.3% growth in 2019. Looks like his tax break in 2018 didn't work.


I'm kinda interested in freedom, liberty.

Not this:

The Democrat Party is now running on full-blown anti-white racism,
socialism,
infanticide,
opposition to free speech,
substituting illegal alien voters for the American citizenry,
support for rioters, arsonists, murderers, and anarchists,
accepting payment from Communist China for future considerations,
and anti-Semitism… the knuckle-dragging, atavistic pagan party.
And, perhaps you can offer your analysis of which Trump policy turned Americans against his policies.
Well.....you could if there were any.
Otherwise we're left with the theft of the election explanation.
Freedom shmeedom. I'm for a government that takes care of the masses. One that doesn't let the rich rule. Liberal progressive Democrats are for we the people. Conservatives are for every man for himself. You call it freedom? Free to take over our government because they have enough money to do so?

Exactly.
The motto of Democrats, Communists, Fascists, Socialists, Nazis, Progressives, fools.


Let me explain it to you on a level you may understand:

The Dog and the Wolf​

A gaunt Wolf was almost dead with hunger when he happened to meet a House-dog who was passing by. "Ah, Cousin," said the Dog. "I knew how it would be; your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you. Why do you not work steadily as I do, and get your food regularly given to you?"

"I would have no objection," said the Wolf, "if I could only get a place."

"I will easily arrange that for you," said the Dog; "come with me to my master and you shall share my work."

So the Wolf and the Dog went towards the town together. On the way there the Wolf noticed that the hair on a certain part of the Dog's neck was very much worn away, so he asked him how that had come about.

"Oh, it is nothing," said the Dog. "That is only the place where the collar is put on at night to keep me chained up; it chafes a bit, but one soon gets used to it."

"Is that all?" said the Wolf. "Then good-bye to you, Master Dog."

Better starve free than be a fat slave.

You guys only want freedom for things you like. Free to smoke pot? Not if you had your say. Free to marry someone of the same sex? Not if you had your way.

What you want is the Insurance company to be free to deny people because of pre existing conditions. You want the corporations to be free to pollute and create monopolies.

One day you cry unconstitutional and the next day you are attacking people's first amendment rights.

You're a hypocrite.

I can be more precise:
The Founders, classical liberals, conservatives
a. individualism, free markets, and limited constitutional government.
“free markets, free voices, free people”

Fascists, Nazis, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Democrats
b. the collective, command and control regulation of private industry, and overarching government that can order every aspect of the private citizen's life....right down to control of his thoughts and speech.


None of the totalitarian forms of political plague have the slightest concern for human life: not communism (gulags), not Nazism (concentration camps), not Liberalism (abortion), not Progressivism (eugenics), not socialism (theft), not fascism (murder).

The Democrats check every one of those boxes.



They only differ in the final outcome: slavery, serfdom, or death.

Do Lefties really believe that Father Government or some higher power is “distributing” or handing out wealth? It doesn’t make any sense that people make different decisions and choose different pathways in life which lead them to different levels of wealth?
We hear Lefties always whining about these things and I always wonder why. I can’t wrap my head around how my quality of life is different because my neighbor makes more than I do and or has accumulated more wealth than I have.
I’m hoping sealybobo and rightwinger and some of the other beggars will get in here and make sense out of it all.
Yes. From tax breaks that benefit the rich and shift the tax burden more on to us, or lead to cuts in social services and programs to turning a blind eye to illegal employers to allowing companies to move their operations overseas so ceo's, shareholders and consumers can benefit at the expense of American workers.

Kroger grocery company CEO Rodney McMullen cut COVID-19 hazard pay for food workers last year just months into the pandemic — then scooped up a record $22.4 million in compensation for himself, Bloomberg reported Thursday.
McMullen’s pay package was revealed Thursday in a regulatory filing. His compensation rose almost 6% from the prior year, padded by a bigger bonus, a salary hike and stock awards, Bloomberg noted. That was McMullen’s biggest take ever since he became CEO in 2013.

What other ways have the rich waged class warfare on us? If Kroger employees were unionized, that CEO wouldn't have gotten $22 million. He would have got $11 million and Kroger employers would get the other $11 million.

Here, in America, there is no perennial class of 'the rich.'

"...economic mobility. About 60 percent of the households that were in the lowest income quintile in 1999 were in a higher quintile ten years later. During the same decade, almost 40 percent of the richest households fell to a lower quintile. This is a nation where you can rise or fall. It is a nation where you can climb the economic ladder based not on who you are born to, or what class you are born into, but based on your talents, your passion, your perseverance, and the content of your character." https://imprimisarchives.hillsdale.edu/file/archives/pdf/2013_05_Imprimis.pdf
Tell that to the blue collar worker who worked for Ford or GM and made great pay but then his job was sent to Mexico or China.
The days when you could get out of high school, work at the plant for 40 years, let your wife stay home and raise 6 kids, then retire at 65 are long gone. They will not return. The global market and automation has changed all of that.



Taxation ended it.

Add up federal, local, state, fees, fines, etc., and see how half your income goes to these folks:

By the way, Trump only had 2.3% growth in 2019. Looks like his tax break in 2018 didn't work.


I'm kinda interested in freedom, liberty.

Not this:

The Democrat Party is now running on full-blown anti-white racism,
socialism,
infanticide,
opposition to free speech,
substituting illegal alien voters for the American citizenry,
support for rioters, arsonists, murderers, and anarchists,
accepting payment from Communist China for future considerations,
and anti-Semitism… the knuckle-dragging, atavistic pagan party.
And, perhaps you can offer your analysis of which Trump policy turned Americans against his policies.
Well.....you could if there were any.
Otherwise we're left with the theft of the election explanation.
Freedom shmeedom. I'm for a government that takes care of the masses. One that doesn't let the rich rule. Liberal progressive Democrats are for we the people. Conservatives are for every man for himself. You call it freedom? Free to take over our government because they have enough money to do so?

"Freedom shmeedom."


Exactly.
The motto of Democrats, Communists, Fascists, Socialists, Nazis, Progressives, fools.


Let me explain it to you on a level you may understand:

The Dog and the Wolf​

A gaunt Wolf was almost dead with hunger when he happened to meet a House-dog who was passing by. "Ah, Cousin," said the Dog. "I knew how it would be; your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you. Why do you not work steadily as I do, and get your food regularly given to you?"

"I would have no objection," said the Wolf, "if I could only get a place."

"I will easily arrange that for you," said the Dog; "come with me to my master and you shall share my work."

So the Wolf and the Dog went towards the town together. On the way there the Wolf noticed that the hair on a certain part of the Dog's neck was very much worn away, so he asked him how that had come about.

"Oh, it is nothing," said the Dog. "That is only the place where the collar is put on at night to keep me chained up; it chafes a bit, but one soon gets used to it."

"Is that all?" said the Wolf. "Then good-bye to you, Master Dog."

Better starve free than be a fat slave.
You guys only want freedom for things you like. Free to smoke pot? Not if you had your say. Free to marry someone of the same sex? Not if you had your way.

What you want is the Insurance company to be free to deny people because of pre existing conditions. You want the corporations to be free to pollute and create monopolies.

One day you cry unconstitutional and the next day you are attacking people's first amendment rights.

You're a hypocrite.



I can be more precise:
The Founders, classical liberals, conservatives
a. individualism, free markets, and limited constitutional government.
“free markets, free voices, free people”

Fascists, Nazis, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Democrats
b. the collective, command and control regulation of private industry, and overarching government that can order every aspect of the private citizen's life....right down to control of his thoughts and speech.


None of the totalitarian forms of political plague have the slightest concern for human life: not communism (gulags), not Nazism (concentration camps), not Liberalism (abortion), not Progressivism (eugenics), not socialism (theft), not fascism (murder).

The Democrats check every one of those boxes.



They only differ in the final outcome: slavery, serfdom, or death.
Let's just say I believe your side has won so I don't know why you're complaining. Labor costs are low. CEO's are highly paid and they deserve it. Taxes are low.

Me? I basically have surrendered. If you can't beat them, join them. There was a time I was paid what everyone else was paid. Hard to get by on that pay. And I don't have any kids and never had any student debt. I have lived my life exactly the way Republicans would say to. Save 401K. So I have. Have the masses? Nope. So it is clear that today's masses don't have it as good as the baby boomer generation had/has it. They gave themselves great pay and pensions and when they retired or amassed a fortune they decided that we can't afford to have it as good as them.

If I would have went to work at Ford when I was 17 and graduated highschool I would have retired 3 years ago with a 30 year pension. Today I have way more than a half million and 15 years left to save more. Do you? Do the masses? And even as good as I have it, remember I have to now work till I'm 65. If I would have went to work for a union I would have saved all that time and money going to college and retired at 47.

You Americans are suckers.

One of my lady friends stopped by today. Worked for one company for 30 years. She was jealous that all her friends were teachers and have pensions. She's 65 and says she can't afford to live on social security and medicare. That's sad. MAGA my ass.
