    I didn't expect anything less than a condescending comment from someone who makes Gruber look smart either. You don't seem to understand that the economy grows and if you choose not to capitalize in the opportunity to capture more of it then stop blaming the rich people for your own actions or in your case lack of action

    Really? at any point in time there is not a finite amount of wealth?
    the fact that the fed can add money to the system at any time.

    Again with the straw.
    nope no straw at all. the fact is between how liquid the economy is and that the fed can expand the money supply as needed
    means that the 1% can never hold everything.

    I am sorry, you apparently just aren't that marketable and it has nothing to do with any rich person. Just class envy on your part and jealousy over what someone else has.

    They can't keep taking more of the pie forever, it is the trend that is most distressing. It doesn't matter if the pie is growing if they keep taking bigger pieces of it.
    good thing we can always add more pie. something you still don't seem to get.

    prove it is in a foreign account some where first. this is just a meme of the left with no traction.
    The fact is the federal reserve can increase the money supply as the economy grows or shrinks.

    that is there job. to ensure that all those evil 1% people can't have the whole pie for themselves.
    they make sure that there is plenty of money in the system.

    Um, an infinite amount has not existed.

    I never said they could.

    there is more wealth available than stealing stuff from those who are more talented or intelligent than you are

    the zero sum nonsense of the income redistributionist left is hilarious

    you probably blame the valedictorian of you HS class from preventing you from getting A grade

    You are still avoiding the argument, a finite amount of wealth exists, and if a group has captured an ever growing share, there is no escaping the fact that less remains for the other 99%.
