Your rants are both amusing and entertaining, but that's the extent of their use.

    While I'd love to wade through that absolute mess of a paragraph chock full of juicy personal insults and generalizations about just about anyone hovering within shouting distance of the poverty line, I attempt to avoid deliberately wasting more than a mere few seconds on subject matter that happens to be this devoid of thought or meaning.
    Yes...we were. Far too many and those numbers continue to swell to what we have today. Meanwhile, while those pathetic creatures wallow on their back whining about how unfair life is people come to this country from across the globe, start with nothing, and create lives for themselves and their families. Good lord, it must be ****ing EMBARRASSING knowing that you were BORN here and fail so completely, meanwhile people with no assets risk their very lives to come here and manage to find work and manage to provide for themselves and their families. How ****ing pathetic.

    Lets do it and find out if you guys are right. If you are its win-win.
    You dont have to...all you have to do is look at the train of people that buy lottery tickets and invest their welfare and other state assistance on cigarettes, tobacco, drugs, and the latest XBox games.

    Hardly

    And that swelling you speak of couldn't in any way be related to the housing collapse and subsequent implosion of the labor market? Preposterous notion I know, but one that just may be worth considering seeing as a scant year before said collapse the unemployment rate presided at less than 5% and the howling about parasites, leeches, and other insults levied at those dirty street folk was remarkably quiet.

    It looks as if you've embarked on another quest to form an entire paragraph without presenting an idea, suggestion, fact, rebuttal or anything resembling such. From a mere glance it appears you were wildly successful.

    LOL, yeah, making it so the government gets to take 100% of what you own every 10 years if you're successful enough would be GREAT for the economy. What an awesome incentive.

    All I can say is $32 trillion dollars. Would anyone really miss a $1 million of it if it fell into my pocket?

    Re: Super rich hold $32 trillion in offshore havens

    The attitudes expressed in this thread and their consequences are a big reason we and many other companies moved as much of our operations as possible out of the USA. We now have only a minimal operation in the USA and, surprise, surprise, it manages to break even year after year.

    The USA used to be the place everyone wanted to be, our company included, but not any more. Why would that be? It certainly is not because of salary rates. Our pay rates are higher than USA rates for similar positions. We even have some employees that were formerly USA citizens.

    Much of EU went down the path you are headed and they are beginning to pay the price. Oh well, we will do fine no matter what y'all do. Bon Voyage.
