But, hey, those guys are working 390 times faster than the rest of, right?


"Incomes rising fastest at the top" - who cares? How is their wealth taking money away from you? Why do you think you are entitled to someone else's money?

There are 3 possibilities here:

1) they are spending it: good for them, they are boosting GDP!

2) they are investing it: good for them, they are providing jobs!

3) they are hiding it under a mattress: then who cares? It actually helps you by deflating prices. If your neighbor had $20 Trillion dollars in his mattress that nobody knew about, how would it affect you?

The problem is not the rich, the problem is that we, the middle class, are not doing our part. We priced/regulated ourselves out of the global workforce and India and China are building up their middle classes at our expense. It is time to stop whining, stop blaming others, roll up our sleeves and get off our asses. Others are willing to do our jobs for less - we have 2 choices: work for less still, or do a better job. That is the reality that is beating us over the head right now. Taking every penny from every billionaire will not even begin to solve our problems. Wake the F up. Do you think the millions of Indian programmers or tens of millions of Chinese laborers sit around and complain about a handful of rich people? They don't, and that is why they are kicking our a$$es right now.

No... on second thought, Norton, don't nuke the thread. It's a thread like this that let's the climbing community discover it's "special climbers".


And Crack addict is clearly "special".
