    If I am happy and I like my home and my job, why the hell should I care if Bill Gates is a billionaire? That's just Commie thinking. Bill Gates can be a trillionaire for all I care. As long as I like my life I won't envy others theirs.

    Grow up for Pete's sake. Live your life and stop sweating other peoples' lives.
    Your level of understanding on this particular subject is frighteningly non existent.

    First, start by wiping your brain for the notion that the lower class are just jealous. That should free up your mind on why huge income inequality is such a bad thing.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    The richest 1% of the population will own more than half of the worlds 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.
    yea because we all know that the economy is a zero sum game.
    the fact is that this is not monopoly and this market is more fluid.

    money constantly changes hands up and down the pay scale.
    so it is not possible for this to happen.

    more so when the fed controls the money supply.
    when will people drop this absurd theory.

    if they weren't jealous then they would stop trying to take what doesn't belong to them. that is just a start.
    they wouldn't lead with the "it's not fair" meme that so often is the main point in their argument.

    if being rich was easy then everyone would do it.
    getting to be rich isn't easy and is in fact hard. it takes a lot of discipline and money management to get to be rich.
    something most people don't have.

    I did not ask about the cure- I asked about the costs.

    Of course poverty has costs. What does that have to do with this thread?

    It would seem they have nothing in crybaby points about "fairness"
    As do the flat/fair tax crowds

    typical non-argument from you that addresses nothing.
