    Then why is it that red states are the highest welfare recipients? Shouldnt they be blue if yojr analysis is correct?

    Ever consider that wealth WANTS people on welfare so it can avoid the consequences of its actions? Hunger breeds revolution and adoption of.socialism, historically.

    So foster various forms of welfare, then bitch about welfare. Pay PR flacks to convince people ON assistance to hate assistance.

    Hell, both parties use of techniques developed BY the Nazis is never condemned. Its protected by the very folks claiming to be treated like Jews. Defending the very mechanism by which the Nazis obtained public support for the
    Holocaust.

    Pretty ironic.

    Is it that kind of fester or the American Revolution or French Revolution kind of fester?

    Hatred of Jews is based on a number of things. Occupy doesn't hold the rich responsible for the death of Jesus, for instance. Doesn't think they're responsible for the Black Death. Makin bread out of babies. The list is extensive.

    The aristocracy in France was taking too much of France's wealth unto themselves. And the majority of new productivity in the past thirty years HAS gone to the 1%.

    The Jews were scapegoated. And the Nazis weren't the first to do so.

    The rich, on the other hand, have a history of greedy misbehavior, so its not inappropriate to suspect they're doing it again.

    Of course there is the alternative to greed, which is that the rich are smarter, better educated and work harder than 99% of other people.

    Could it be that 99% of people should become greedier in order that they too have more stuff?

    Or maybe there is more to life than that.

    Without God or money Leftists seem to get quite frustrated with their situation.

    And in essence what he said is true ?

    When did America ever decide it was ok to focus on envy as a legislative jumping off point ? Seriously, thats the childish central theme of your Presidents state of the union address...

    It's literally the best he can do considering how sick this Countries economy is. Take from those who have more and let the Government do it for you.
    So were the Founders envious of the King or the Dutch East Indies company?

    Or is it possible that things OTHER than envy can motivate questioning the status quo?

    Someday I hope to find out how much the rich pay for things like "envy" and "job creators". They certainly did.

    There's a receipt or pay stub for both, bet your ass.

    PR is a ten billion dollar a year industry, outside of those in direct employ.

    Somewhere there's a guy on a yacht paid for by " you're just envious of the rich because you're not". And a mansion bought with the proceeds of "the rich are job creators".

    why? they have no legal power, no special privilages over you, so maybe some bad street crime. no mugger can take near as much away from you as the bankers can, and they can do it legally.

    NOBODY is thousands of times smarter, harder working, or better educated than everybody else. Simply not true.

    Dozens, maybe even low hundreds. But not thousands.
