    I would say that we have the wealth to easily provide the necessities of life to everyone. We should at least do that, and if people want more material things, then let them work for it.

    Nah, there is another thread on this.
    Social & financial costs incurred can cost much more than the cure.

    The question remains: So what?

    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.
    You. Do, Not. Get. It.

    With an ever so dwindling pool of available money to be made, how would the bottom 99% increase their median income?
    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.

    I'm afraid you don't get it. The "pool of available money to be made" is never dwindling.

    Oh well? It's just an irrelevant statistic being made hay of by a leftist organization.

    Soros! Everybody drink!

    You have some really warped ideas of what "leftsists" want. Have you made a post yet that isn't oozing unbridled hackery?

Whatever. If they're counting on him to improve their lives, though....
    How is Soros "in the news"? I am so utterly sick of the incessant whining about this guy.
