    Those middle class jobs are hard to find now. It used to be that a college degree meant something besides an ocean of student loan debt.
    It used to be people got college degrees in fields that left them employable and didnt spend 6 years getting an Art History Liberal Arts degree.

That is what i condemn. If there any truth to it, the 99% would have shoved him into extermination camp long ago.

    I'm at a top business school but have no desire to slave my life away for some i-bank or become a vulture capitalist. I'm aware of studies on happiness and how after around $60k/year, wealth makes no difference, yet rich assholes like this billionaire will go to no end to step on others just to eek out an extra million. At the same time, i'm aware that some motivation is needed for anyone to bother with medical or engineering school. My solution then:

    Wealth is capped at $70k/year
    Minimum salary $40k/year

    Confiscated wealth from billionaires will cover health care for all, food and shelter for homeless, repairing america's broken roads and infrastructure, and college costs for the 10% or so who take it seriously

    Do you happen to have a link to that survey?
    Do you for some reason think that only progressives are exploited under this system and want to take from the mega wealthy? I'm referring to the recent revelation that 87 douchebags have as much wealth as half the planet.

    The Nazis were dominated by socialites, rich upper middle class etc.

    Remember those dozens of times Glenn Beck tried to compare what's happening in America to Nazi Germany and then people like j-mac chewed it up and right wingers thought they were accurate comparisons until Lewis Black chewed him a new asshole with a 10 minute long joke about how retarded you sound when you compare things like political discourse to Nazi Germany? No? Well, neither do most of the people who think this guy has a valid point to make.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    The whole National Socialist thing seems to really confuse people which no basic grasp of history.

    Half the planet plus 87 makes for an incoherent revelation.
