I was wrong about HermitMaster being SkipT.

Why would I say this?

Because I finally cracked the True identity of HermitMaster
and of course, knowing the true identity, it makes sense that accusing him/her of being SkipT would illicit No response,
this person would never respond to questions or accusations of any sort.

Just a Troll that would check once in awhile and throw in some fire bombs about how he/she hates Obama and the libs.

and this person did know a lot about what was going on 2 years ago when LEb and SkipT were posting, but hasn't been seen Since!


In Fact!!!

His/Her last post as this person was "Romney is going to Win by a landslide" on Nov 1, 2012!!!!!

The point isn't which Billionaire is the biggest bastard. The point is this income disparity is out of all sense of balance.

Ah, so the fact that George Soros, a well-known supporter of progressive-liberal political causes and a key player in that large disparity you speak of, means nothing.


Just the point of the disparity.


Isn't that the "American" way of the "Free Market" principal?


Or should we abolish all the "Free Market" principals and go straight to wealth distribution so that those individuals that do not nor have worked any time of the lives, can reap from the work of others.

And you post shet asking why I am Anti-America.

Are you talking about the uber rich here?

The poor are called poor for a reason...so what wealth distribution are you talking about?

The rich have it and most didn't work for it.

Really!

Please do cite a ref for that assertion.

Let's start with Bill Gates.


Or, let's see, how about George Soros himself.


Or...


Just about every "rich" I dude I personally know, started with just about nothing and busted his/her ass to acquire what they now have.

Chief, for a guy who sits behind a desk and answers phones, you seem to have it out for the working stiff.

You don't understand the issue of wage disparity. Perhaps the word "wage" might give you a clue. It has to do with WORKING people. But of course, you immediately make the statement that those near the bottom who WORK, "have never worked in their lives". Must be how you think of your work, eh?

I also like how you seem to be viewing teachers. Sort of the same as navy chiefs, I guess. You'd know best if they are lard asses, sitting all day and pretending to do work, while they are actually producing paper.

But I guess you must know. They don't deserve to make a living wage, either chiefs (who get their food and shelter FREE, unlike the teachers), or teachers. No value to society to either one. If you say so.

Does it make you happy that there are Billionaires on both sides of the political spectrum?
Does it make the dark money of the Koch's, Hunt's and the Sherman Adelson's more palatable knowing there is some other Billionaires like Gates and Soros on the other side?
Did it make all the impeachable crimes of the "Tricky Dick" Nixon administration less of a scar on your Republican psyche to be able to bandy about slogans like "Slick Willy"? How about all the other false equivalent accusations the right wing talking heads burble up every day? Does it make you feel like less of an idiot for supporting the Shrub?

E-1 Base Pay in 1974 was $276 a month.

E-5 (Married) Base Pay in 1978 was a whopping $498

E-6 (Married) Base Pay in 1982 got me rich at $655

The reality of Wealth distribution:

"In the United States, wealth is highly concentrated in a relatively few hands. As of 2010, the top 1% of households (the upper class) owned 35.4% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19% (the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 53.5%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 89%, leaving only 11% of the wealth for the bottom 80% (wage and salary workers). In terms of financial wealth (total net worth minus the value of one's home), the top 1% of households had an even greater share: 42.1%. Table 2 and Figure 1 present further details, drawn from the careful work of economist Edward N. Wolff at New York University (2012)."

Meanwhile teachers across the country are spending their own limited funds on supplies for the students.

That does not state shet about how them rich dudes that you are all jealous about, acquired their money.


I personally know a dude down in Fontana that started his business with a $5000 loan from his Grand Dad some 12 years ago


He is now worth well over $69 Million



So, we can now assume according to BOBDA, that Bill Gates is one of them scumbags that didn't work a day in his life.


WTF is a PX?


Free Health care??

Last year alone I paid over $6988 dollars in Co-Pay charges. The year before, $7345.


Wow... you guys really are ignorant.

Sorry $69 million though nice and worthy of a hearty congratulations is chicken scratch. He wouldn't even be allowed to valet park for the real 1%.


And so what exactly do these hedge fund managers who make so much do to earn this whopping windfall?
I can tell you exactly what teachers do every day and it is worth more to this country than any Billionaire. Think about, where did Bill Gates really get his start?

Christie, Not Quite Dead Yet

Michael Tomasky
03.27.14

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/03/27/christie-not-dead-yet.html

Politically, this new report “clearing” Chris Christie is anticlimactic and largely irrelevant. I put the irony quotes around clearing because, well, what did you expect a report commissioned by Christie and conducted by a long-time aide to alpha dog Christie defender Rudy Giuliani (I refer to Randy Mastro) to conclude? That Christie should be indicted?

So that’s what makes it largely irrelevant.
