    I think they must have given it all to you. I was just fired because they didn't want to trickle down anymore money to me.

    Fixed it for you, Mr. Independent.
    You distorted my post and in doing so demonstrated again that Leftists are not too bright.

    The point was that Leftists pit Americans against each other through the use of divisive slogans, such as the "War on Women". Your inane examples miss the point completely, as did the poster who gave it a 'like'.

    The corporate fat cats bag millions whether or not the business is doing well or they make the right decisions. Take a look at JPMC for example. Jamie Dimon received a 74% pay increase this year despite the tens of billions in penalties for illegal activity and his misrepresentation of the London Whale. The firm still had robust profits and a significant increase in share value but it was announced that salary increases for the peons would not happen. Guess they had to get the extra millions for Dimon from somewhere.

    Well, what she got one thing right.

    Trickle down economics is abhorrent. Sooner or later the people who vote for the GOP will figure this out.

    JPMC and Dimon are crooked but you should be pleased.
    That way he could do stuff like this ...

    "From 1989 to 2009, the banker and his wife gave over half a million dollars to Democrats, according to a Center for Responsive Politics analysis. That’s 12 times what they gave to Republicans during that same time frame. "

    here is true inanity
    pretending that the mere identification of competing interests in conflict, such as 'war on women', is the same thing as pitting Americans against each other

    You might want to rewrite this post...
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    You don't understand what the term means, do you? Would you prefer 'trickle up' economics?

    These terms have little to do with complicated economic problems but are instead meaningless slogans designed by politicians to oversimplify the issue for a gullible electorate who think they understand economics..

    You don't believe that charging an opposing political party of engaging in a "War on Women" is divisive?
