    Because race baiting isn't the topic. Get it yet? I also note you don't have anything to add remotely akin to the topic. Thanks for proving my point.
    Then you clearly haven't read the thread because I have quot e a few posts on Bernie sanders running. Meanwhile you are spending your time trolling me rather than being on topic. Oh the hypocrisy.

    And your right in that race baiting isn't the topic so go bug your conservative friend who dropped in this thread to tell us all that Obama is black. Then you may have a smidgeon of credibility when you try to play thread police in here.

    I am clearly reading this thread - what happened before is irrelevant. You apparently don't know what trolling is, you didn't back in the PCF days either. Glad to see some things don't change.

    You still not getting it - I continue to ask you to get back on topic and you don't. Reported.

    One of the top 1%ers? Probably none.

    If, however, the middle class had control of those billions, then a lot more would be spent on consumer goods, giving the businesses a larger market, which would make for more profits, which would again be pumped into the economy, and we'd all have more.

    Instead of simply creating more of a market for luxury goods, as is happening now.

    Despite expanding into new markets, the luxury-retail business has been relying on price increases to drive sales. Now, even the very wealthy are nearing the limits of what they are willing to spend.

    In the past five years, the price of a Chanel quilted handbag has increased 70% to $4,900. Cartier's Trinity gold bracelet now sells for $16,300, 48% more than in 2009. And the price of Piaget's ultrathin Altiplano watch is now $19,000, up $6,000 from 2011.

    That's what candidates and the teams that handle them do. It's not like informed voters don't know - if Sanders runs they'll do the same thing. Politicians rely on the uninformed to elect them primarily - and well placed money for the power brokers to influence groups like unions.

    George will back anyone who shares his ideology and world view. Sanders may be on that list of future supporters.

    Poor people and lower middle class people don't need to worry about Chanel handbags.

    So how much would you like to take from the 1 percenters to give out to everyone else? And how exactly would we middle classers get the money - checks from the government?

    I shop at Kohls and Macys. If the 1 percenters were taxed some more, or were forced to give up their billions, how much less would the cost of what I buy there be, and why?

    you're welcome

    Good - you, as a modest income earner, don't have to worry. I, as a far more than modest income earner, do have to worry.
    more ignorance
    you have no idea of my income, thus you are without the means to discern how our incomes compare
    but the good news is Bernie Sanders has indicated he seeks to tax the very rich. only if you are among that group should you be concerned about his platform. and if you are in that group, you should be more like Warren Buffett and welcome that shift of the tax burden to those who can most afford to pay

    Then if you're a more than moderate income earner, you're free to pay extra taxes whenever you want. I'll keep what I earn, thankyouverymuch.

    and if Bernie Sanders is elected you will continue to do so
    however, if another neocon is elected, either you will pay more taxes on your modest income, or the national deficit will continue to increase, or some of both will occur
