    If we could find a way to cut the 1% by 1/10th, then there would be a whole lot less of them.

    Cute replies are all the intellectually bereft have. Also, the intellectually dishonest. I don't see Kobie shouting, "Koch brothers! Everybody drink!".

    The richest 1% of the population will own more than half of the world’s wealth by next year as inequality continues its relentless rise across the globe, a new report out Monday says.

    The report, by the U.K.-based charity Oxfam, shows that the top 1% have grown their share of global wealth constantly since 2010. After dipping at 44% in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, it rose to 48% by the end of last year and is poised to top 50% by the end of next year.

    you can take away all the wealth of the 1% that you want to. give it to the poor and it will funnel it's way back.
    why? because they have the knowledge to build it back up.

    there is a reason that 50% of the people that win the lottery are broke or worse off in 3-5 years of winning.
    so handing people a bunch of money won't solve the issue.

    why? they don't know what to do with it and blow it on stupid crap. they get involved with shady business deals, because they lack the knowledge.

    yea but it is easier to demean and try and go after those people. it makes for good talking points when the rest of your argument fails.

    If socialism is sooooo great, why is this still happening? Decades upon decades of socialism in Europe, and the USA becoming more and more "progressive" all the time? What gives?
    I don't understand it either. It isn't a static pie. it use to be when we had the gold standard but we don't anymore. countries can increase or decrease their money supplies at will
    so there is no way for the top 1% to own everything. this isn't monopoly where there is only so much in the bank.

    liberal logic at it's finest but it makes for a great appeal to emotion. darn those evil 1%'s going to own everything and no one else will have a dime to their name.

    Psst. Obama is a democrat, dude. And just look how he proposes to handle this 'problem.' He is going to raise taxes on the evil rich by $32 billion per year. That should fix it lol. Just for the record, it is probably better to vote for the party that doesn't care about the wealth gap than it is to vote for the party that only pretends to care about it. Unless all you are really concerned about is symbolic 'solutions' to manufactured 'problems.'

    quite snippy there

    did you get a raise? did you provide more to your company during the year? does your company do reviews?

    i have found the following to be fairly true (not absolute, but the majority) depending on the business, and the financial position of the company

    a. that most give cola raises to their employees to keep up with inflation
    b. that their best performers are always awarded in one way or another
    c. and that they look for dead wood among their employees...people not keeping up

    Do you negotiate on your own, or are you part of a union?

    If you work for any government entity, you are at the mercy of the budgets.
