    But they can't wrap their heads around the truth of what you just said.
    Obama and Bush are both Corporate Capitalist jerks, selling out America to the highest bidder.

    And your link means what?
    That countries such as China, Indonesia have a growing economy and increase of- wait for it- middle class.

    you claimed the middle class was disappearing. My link says it's growing.

    It's always about envy, as you point out.

    How many people in the US face starvation? How many suffer and die because they can't get any medical treatment? How man children are abandoned in the streets, or even the wild?

    In America, "wealth redistribution" is about having what the other guys has, not about need. The progressive left throws out this gibberish, touting this and that as "income discrepancy", which is another way of saying "I get an SUV too!"

    the same crowd, will throw down money to prevent development in Africa and the third world, where having an SUV is a ****ing pipe dream. They create nasty but neat sounding votes in the UN which say "Sorry, Africa, but you don't even get to have universal electricity because, well the world's heating up and we have to "save" it, and, well, somebody has to make the sacrifice"

    While the likes of the all too comfortable Nancy Pelosi, the pampered Barack Obama, and a host of "celebrities" demand 50" screens for their supporters and illegals, child starvation is routine in much of the world, life expectancies are a fraction of the US....

    But, we can't talk about those things.........

    Why?

    When we have all this crap about other people's money, how come the suffering never get mentioned?

It's a purposeful march to ensure the rich stay rich. And that 1% ain't even safe. Eventually we're really going to be looking at the 0.1%, and even many of those in that 1% will find themselves down in the slums with the rest of the serfs.

    This is the movement to reinstate a true aristocracy. Corporate America is but one necessity in that quest.

    That has nothing to do with world wealth distribution.....or the propensity to spend. you are bonging while we bing.
    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.
    You seemed to have a VERY hard time believing the math, questioning it many times....and you STILL do not have correct numbers.
    Now keep running from the question posed, you do that well too
    I feel no need to answer ALL of your off topic non-sequiturs, get back to the OP.

    see my link. You haven't answered my question.


    I don't see middle class towns being raized for projects, or low income homes.
