    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.

    It's as if you were to take a motor and grease only a single bearing, and then expect the motor to work.
    Wow,

    So the left has devolved into motor metaphors ? Money is " grease " ?

    Did you just make that up ?

    Redistribution doesn't " grease " anything exept the palms of Bueracrats.

    It gets redistributed from the tax payet to the Government and that's where it stays.

    Greetings Kobie.

    I'm sick of the whole reporting process on who's funding who, and for what propaganda purpose! The last thing we need is more agitating and division in this country right now! People are already on edge because they don't know what the future holds for them and their families.

    Brothern is "the left"? Why do you ALWAYS argue labels rather than people?
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Some things about inequality disturb me but at no time in history has there been less absolute poverty and I guess I'd rather have a better situation globally than back to the time of the golden middle class in the west and people not able to afford shoes in the East.

    My now Ex Wife was from the far east, very prosperous when I first met her actually holidaying in the west. Later on discovered she could sand down wood with her feet, couldn't afford shoes when she was young so walked everywhere bearfoot. Similar stories can be told in Bangladesh and various other countries.

    So lets not decry from the heavens the evils of capitalism, if anything its equalled out the share of wealth and given wealth to the super rich at the same time. Ultimately though less people suffering.
