    No one said that, you really shouldn't fly off the handle with your straw arguments.



    I agree, yet it is clear that they do. Or, at the very least liberals use that emotion of jealousy, and envy to stoke the very hate we are speaking of...



    In my world? No...Wrong again...I really don't know why you have to personalize everything instead of discussing it. The only thing I can think of is that you really don't have a good argument against this, so instead you go into a comfort zone of attacking those who don't think like you do on these things, and lash out in an emotional attempt to shut down debate.
    Or maybe you're just full of it.

Leftists don't complain that all members of the same movie or baseball team are paid the same but will make this argument about paying CEO's less. They can't seem to understand that people have talents in different areas and are often paid accordingly.

    I see similarities between the long propaganda campaign of Germany to stoke antisemitic viewpoints, and that against those here against Corporations, and Banks, or wealthy people for the past 50 years.
    It seems obvious but when those victimized by propaganda won't see that because, like the example with Jews, they believe it all to be true. That's why they gave such support to the loutish and remarkably stupid OWS protesters.
    Did I insult you or something? Because I can not figure out why such a childish attack, lashing out would be in order.
    That's leftism. I stopped being nice with most of them because it's seldom, if ever, reciprocated.

    It's difficult to keep up with that snappy leftist repartee.

    Well, when you've spent 50 pages stubbornly insisting this guy is right despite numerous people telling you how stupid it is to compare any sort of animosity against the rich in this country (such as it is) to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany, that's pretty much all this thread deserves.

    Yeah, I'm not a lemming like most demo's....So, yes, it's a discussion...You remind me of the kid that is losing at a board game, and tips the board over and yell's, "This is stupid, and you're a cheater...." Right before he stomps off crying...
