    What exactly have the wealthy done TO the poor ? What have they lost? How does someone's money harm them? Is a cashier a cashier because a doctor denied them the incentive to go to college?

    Would you have preferred no unemployment, or tax extentions?
    Don't you think Obama would've been blamed for raising taxes on those making less than 250,000?

    Obama shoulda thought about that, before he killed so many jobs and pissed away so much money of bull**** stimulus projects.

    If Obama were really concerned about generating tax revenue and putting people to work, there wouldn't any drilling moratoriums.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see an uprising, but it's not going to go the way you want it to.

    Do you own a business? or do you eat from the trough and as long as the trough is filled, regularly, you're good with things?

    Until those forced into the subservience of employment take control of business, the rich will always be the dominators of the poor.

    and it was repeated with this answer from apdst

    Do you own a business? or do you eat from the trough and as long as the trough is filled, regularly, you're good with things?
    Could you explain what this has to do with the question first asked by liblady?

    You're 100% right. If the poor got together and rose up I seriously doubt they'd be able to do anything substantial, even if it were the bottom 50% of income earners.

    Actually no, it happened because the economy was ****ty.
