    this is a silly trick-focus on minutia and claim that this overcomes an argument you cannot beat

    take all the people who have existed in known history

    how many of them have lived in societies with disparities of wealth versus those who have lived in completely egalitarian societies?

    percentages-probably 98% to 2%

    Yes, he did losing 4 million votes in 2012, losing the House in 2010 and the entire Congress in 2014. Are you ever going to get tired of carrying his water for him and making Gruber look smart?

    With an ever so dwindling pool of available money to be made, how would the bottom 99% increase their median income?


    this is only true if the the economy is a zero sum came. since it sin't a zero sum game then this line of logic is invalid.

    Yes. Liberals account for the majority of the 1% followed by libertarians and then conservatives.

    All the right wants is a conglomeration of government being controlled by corporate America with a little thrown in to fool the religious zealots, which is never hard to do.

    i gave about ten 5-7% raises.....they did better than other employees in the last year...top performers

    i gave most of the rest 2-3% raises based on cost of living increases

    and i gave zero raise to 12 employees (either too new, or bad reviews/bad performance)
    Good for you. You win a cookie!

    You being an example of how things should be done is just that, one example. In my opinion most large corporations don't work like you describe. I've worked for some pretty large companies, along with some smaller ones, and getting anything out of them is like snail racing, slow and slimy.
