I don't know how Moore would survive in a world where food was equally divided between everyone.

Ah, the sheeple defending the slaughter house. Nothing feeds socialism like greedy capitalism. The 1% are the new monarchy and y'all be peasants. The irony of it all. Invest in Vaseline if you have an aversion to hemorrhoids.

heh heh

sounds like you're as at a loss as to what to do about it as anyone else.

sure socialism feeds capitalism.... with interest

debt-based socialism is a capitalist conspiracy

its main victim is the fiscal viability of the future

and the innocents unrepresented by anyone

are indebted before conceived

taxation of future generations, without representation

(hey, don't they have bloody revolutions about that kind of thing?)

child abuse on a colossal scale > perfected

be proud. we all bear this guilt.

Nothing kills capitalism faster than greed and monopoly driven business.

When all the wealth belongs to the fewest hands then everything will collapse on it's self and money will have no value

I wonder if the fall of the middle class has anything to do with all the freeloaders standing around with their hands out?

The rich are carrying the load for everyone. They are the ones that invest in job creation projects for the masses and pay most of the taxes. You think the poor contribute in a positive way to the economy?

There is a quiet revolution going on. You won't hear about it in the capitalist owned media. Protest is squashed by people buying into the propaganda. Change is happening but you have to seek it out.

You are forgetting the rich are the ones playing with the economy in the first place, closing shop and moving to lower standard countries, cutting the purchasing power of the population and so on. When you look at people making it their career at McDonalds instead of it being a part time job for students then something is very wrong. I am sure to poor would love to , if they could , but what do you want to do , have them starve?

There are lots of things they could do but most require getting off their lazy asses and getting a better education or moving to where the jobs are. Fact is welfare pays too well for the lazy to want to look for a real job. Then there are places like where I work where even the newest laborer will make $100G+ a year. But you have to get off the couch and do something.

Watch the film and tell us how the rich are contributing to the economy.

Has it occurred to anyone that the 1% and Big Govt. go hand in hand? Big Govt. facilitates the maintenance of the 1%. Get rid of Big Govt. if you want equity.

Wait .... you are poor , can barely pay your apartment and you want them to get an education? On what money? I don't know where you get your facts but here anyone getting by on welfare have to count every penny. Now moving? To where? Where there is a boom and apartments and lodging are like mortgage payments of small mansions? Not all who is on welfare are lazy. There are some , yes, been like that for a few generations, but I don't judge all that is on welfare on the few I see like that. I just don't use a wide brush like that.


It is easy to judge on a few details.

I assume you can point to a period in which government was smaller and equity was greater?

I don't agree with your conclusion. Government certainly can work to benefit the rich, but without intervention there is no reason to believe that the economy is going to become more equal.

A good deal of the problems we have run into were due to the government's failure to act when they should have. For example, Canada did a lot better in 2008 because we maintained tighter financial regulations than in the US.
