Indeed successful Roman Gladiators had a comparative wealth greater than the top paid quarterbacks or home run hitters in modern America.

    your counter is ignorant. I might say, men have owned weapons for ages. and your counter would be akin to saying some societies had no weapons

    do you see your error?

    You think there are not wealth disparities in tribal societies?

    many rich are

    while its an imperfect argument-there is some truth to the point that rich conservatives are rich despite the government while rich liberals are rich because of the government

    its irrelevant. that some tribe in borneo might have egalitarian wealth distribution patterns does not establish that we have wealthy people in every first world and almost every other nation these days

    I couldn't care less. we have had wealthy individuals somewhere in the world for at least three thousand years.

    Or you could ask the 298 million who are either employed or don't want to work. Those people would probably be much easier to find.

    Maybe you can ask the over 10% African American unemployed why Obama hasn't created an economy that helps them.
    It would probably be much easier to ask the 90% who aren't unemployed.

    Yep, we saw how happy those people are in the last election. Those that continue to support liberalism are making Gruber look brilliant. Only a true idiot continues to buy the liberal lies.

    By the way we have a labor force of 157 million and child labor laws that prevent that number from rising to 298 million
