    So taking a valid insight about the nature of the American people and reducing it to an extremist absurdity that nobody is arguing for is your idea of making a logical point? That is absurd and fools nobody.

    Working Democrats are NOT against rich folks. They are against rich folks who are against them.

    Go ahead, fullfil everone's stereotypes -black and white, poor and rich. G'head, be exactly as you make yourself to be, and everyone else in consequence believes you to be. You will be treated as such, and the cycle will continue. The few will pay for the many, the working will be punished for the lazy, the rich will be taxed for poor, and the people who are a discredit to thier race will continue to fulfill such roles in society. Be prepared; if you choose this course of action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, and people have no problem shooting back.

    Haven't you made comments in the past that if the rich don't agree to being taxed substantially more the poor are going to rise up and take the wealth?

    or that if the rich don't drop to their knees and beg for the "privilege of keeping what they have" the masses will take it away from them?

    you dems are doing everything possible to convince the masses that they are treated unfairly because others do well. you play that game to win the votes of those who have been convinced that its "not fair" that they are poor or even middle class and the dems will "Even things up"

    but you are also pushing for a civil war with that sort of incendiary propaganda

    That makes no sense as nobody is advocating that sort of silly nonsense.

    Perhaps you can quote me on that? It seems to me you are again perverting my positions in favor of creating a strawman that will burn bright in the night sky as you right wingers toast marshmallows in the flames and pass kool-aid around like sacramental wine.

    those being those of us who are tired of paying more taxes to fund more idiotic government programs designed to buy the votes of "working democrats"

    lots of these democrats think Doing well is waging "class warfare" against those too untalented or too lazy to do well for themselves

    I have quoted your comment about the rich ought to drop to their knees within the last week. Middle of the road posters noted that was "disturbing" when you posted it

    You want tolerance? Tolerate first. You want help? Do something first. You want money? Make some.

    Warren Buffett (perhaps you have heard of him?) a capitalist of the most successful nature, blew the whistle on that silly class warfare nonsense when he publicly admitted his class has indeed been waging class warfare upon the rest of us for a long time now.... and he is proud to say they are winning.
