    ****, the Vancouver Canucks don't have a player under $980,000, and if you add up the rosters of the NBA, MLB, movie stars, Hip hoppers, pro golfers, the NFL and Nascar drivers, you have few billion there.

    Not that i matters. The number is just a number. Who says a football player or a movie star has to give away money because someone doesn't earn as much? They don't have the ability to score touchdowns or enthrall us with make believe. They didn't bother with an education and have to work at Mac's Milk.

    So?

    DUH!
    Again, what people do with their own money is of concern to you why? Why do you care what someone else pays in taxes? How did any rich person prevent you from joining them? Please explain to me why we need a 3.9 trillion dollar Federal govt. and higher taxes on anyone?

    I forget that liberals really are the selfish people and always want someone else to pay for services and things they want. There is never enough money to fund the liberal spending appetite. Still waiting for you to tell he how any rich person prevented you from joining them?

    "NUKE GAY WHALES FOR JESUS".

    If I didn't have a habit of buying beer with the profits, I might have made a few bucks.

    It's all quite the circus, and yes, tod

    ay, there is quite an alarming bit of well thought out bait for the gullible and easily influenced.
    without the 'Jesus' end, we actually had bumper stickers that said "nuke gay wales now" and "Move, you're in the way of a pipeline."

    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.



    Can you explain to me who is buying all the middle class homes in this country?

    Any other distractions from the point you brought up? As with your trouble with simple percentages, the concept of "propensity to spend" baffles you to point of going off on "taxes" and the size of the US budget....more subjects you have proven time and again an inability to debate.

    I don't understand why you do what you do.

    What people do with THEIR money is irrelevant to me, why does it bother you so much what others make or pay in taxes? AS for math I did quite well, 1% of 6 billion is 60 MILLION so not sure what your issue is other than trolling which you do too often. Now keep running from the question posed, you do that well too

    See, I offered a better deal, with little additional cost.

    Sometimes a little humor takes the edge off. Some people could use a dose or two of it.
