    The American Che Gueverra - you know the exiled Cuban Commie who lives out in the Great Plains and changed his name to Warren Buffett - says that class warfare has been waged in America for a long time now. He also says his side is winning. And his is a billionaire.

    You might increase your relevance in this discussion by keeping up with such things and avoiding falling down the rabbit hole of being uninformed.

    Of course you do. This sort of opinion is an excellent example of the attitude being pushed by the authoritatians of the libertarian right who beat their chests loudly and scream such cliche platitudes as LIBERTY and FREEDOM as their badge of honor. Sadly, they only believe in such words when they apply to themselves and only themselves. For their ideological enemies, they do a bad imitation of the Queen in Wonderland and repeat over and over and over again "OFF WITH THEIR HEADS".

    The really nice thing about this OWS episode is that it completely and utterly exposed the man behind the right wing libertarian curtain as an old humbug. Long after it ends, we will still have the satisfaction of all of you exposing your true feelings on the FREEDOM issue. And that is very satisfying.

    That's class warfare!!
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith

    Unfortunately this would be true if we let dishonesty like yours set the narrative....

    good thing that there are smart people in America that see through your BS.

    Now thats sweet of you to say. Except he is the American capitalist personified and admits that his class has been waging war against the rest of us for a long time and they are winning. So you can call him any name in the book and invent some of your own - but, in the end, a billionaire admits to class warfare from the top down and that utterly obliterates your denial of the same concept.

    But we have already established that 2/3 of Americans agree with me on issues of concern about income distribution and the things that you claim do not exist or are not a problem.


    Poll: U.S. wealth gap unfair - MJ Lee - POLITICO.com

    Nearly two out of three Americans believe that wealth is unfairly distributed in the country, a new poll shows.

    Sixty-six percent of people said money should be more evenly distributed in America, while just 26 percent said the current income distribution is fair. Seven out of 10 Americans believe the policies of Congressional Republicans favor the wealthy, according to a CBS/New York Times poll.

    So try again when the facts are on your side.

    You only like him because he serves yours, and Obama's narrative....If he would have come out and spoke the truth about the tax rates, and been honestly apples to apples then you would have dismissed him at the drop of a hat. So forgive me if I could care less what your bitch Buffet says.

    It is irrelevant what he might come out and say if he lived in your world. The fact is that you claimed one thing about the reality of class warfare and a very wealthy rich American billionaire stands up and tells you that you do not know what you are talking about since he sees it and his side is waging it successfully against the working people.

    That is the point.

    I do not care what you care or do not care about. I do not care if you feel a need to call your ideological enemies silly names.

    This is debate. It is enough for me that you were proven wrong.

    If you expressing your innermost feelings and expressing them with name calling makes you feel better and heals your wounds from getting beat so badly on the actual issues being debated, that is your right.
