    You complained about limiting assets. I'm saying that many things limit assets, not just people / government.

    Without any motivation to what you said, I fail to see how it is relevant.

    It seemed to me that you were complaining about the limiting of assets, well it happens naturally and through other means separate from "men."

    So is this fair capitalism or are the rich just using the system to amass and hoard wealth for the sake of it?

    What makes you think its capitalists - as opposed to Saudi princesses, dictators, Chinese officials and other among the crappies tyrannts around the world?

    It is curious that you assume it is "capitalists" - which means the HATE AMERICA pitch of the President, Democrats and their media is working.

    And computers with internet access so they can whine to others about how unfair life is or what rich people do with their money.

    Nothing wrong with that.
    Citizens have the responsibility to reduce the cost of the interest on the national debt: tax the rich till they bleed.

    Re: Super rich hold $32 trillion in offshore havens

    OK, remember, this is an OPINION.

    There are a very few people who have an astonishing amount of money. Their greed is insatiable. This isn't about spending, it's a race for accumulation.

    These multi-billionaires and maybe even a few trillionaires, are what may have saved us from complete disaster. The government has created inordinate amounts of money and yet, that inflation explosion that should have resulted, has not. If this money were in circulation, I suspect the US Dollar would be toilet paper and instead its the hottest item on the planet.

    As for the US economy, it is limping and will continue to do so indefinitely. There aren't enough good jobs for 307 million people. We're not particularly competitive. We're only good at making a limited number of things and we're a fractured nation.

    So, much as I resent these mega-rich scum, I laso appreciate them for saving the dollar from destruction.

    I was being something of a smartass myself. Sorry about that, for real. You didn't mean what you said about how taking everything from the rich every 10 years would be great for the economy, right? Obviously you can see how that would keep people from even participating in such a system. It doesn't even have to be that draconian before taking and redistributing wealth starts discouraging people from taking the risks necessary to invest in innovation and create successful businesses (and soulless corporations, lol). Profit is a huge motivator, and most of the things we have that make our lives better are due to someone wanting to make a profit.
