    I still don't understand why a billionaire must wait for a law to be passed, before giving more to the government, if that's what they feel must happen...


    Money ----------->mouth.

    Make it happen.

    Do you think the poll results would be the same if the SAME MAJORITY were the 'rich'?

    I don't think so. Union power was never in the numbers that were in the membership, but more so in the allies that held real power as with most quasi criminal organizations.

    If the middle class was not hurting, no I don't think you would see the same majority.

    who really gives a damn about a poll that has some wanting OTHERS to pay for them

    as I noted, if you asked every victim of AIDS or ALS or lung cancer would they favor sacrificing 10000 virgins not related to them if that would cure their diseases, I bet 95% or more would say YES!

    Big frigging deal
