huh - not as much as crapping out diamonds, I'd warrant.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

Most of those demonstrating around 70% work either full or part time, it's not a problem with employee productivity it's a problem with greed. You and those who prescribe to your economic conservative rhetoric will find that you are killing the golden goose " the american worker the american consumer and now the people are starting to rise up trying to protect thier future and the future of generations to come.
It's plain to me that you have no idea of how a business operates, it's plain to me that you have no idea of the value of the employeee to the company, every cog in the economic wheel is needed whether it's the server at MacDonalds or the CEO to keep the wheel turning, when the server no longer has employment the CEO no longer is required
I am hardly poor and didn't get to my status by stealing from anyone, nor did you. The fact that someone who has nothing invested can demand more and you support that mentality says a lot about you.
Love the projection, "it's plain to me that you have no idea of how a business operates" is typical coming from someone who doesn't know me or my background. The market will decide what someone else is worth or feel free to start your own business and pay them what you think they are worth. How do you know that will be enough and is the same as those workers believe they are worth?
The point is that we should not be envious of wealth, nor look at it as the sole purpose in our lives. There are as many opportunities today as there always were but it seems those who are new to the country can more easily see them. Others who have become dependent on the government have not only become blinded to the these opportunities, but are expecting to be led to them as well.
People should stop worrying about the rich and how much they should be taxed and think of their own lives and how they can improve them by utilizing whatever skills and gifts they possess. Chanting slogans, blocking traffic and camping out will not improve their overall present situation at all, and certainly not for the term either.
