    Uh people who live off of money that was voluntarily given to them by those who earned it are not parasites no matter how much you try to label them as that due to an envious view of those born rich.

    Your pathetic attempt to equate voluntary bequeaths of wealth with government redistribution of income that is based on coercion is typical but flawed

    What is this "welfare socialism"?

    And on the bailouts: Well the right wing was pretty damn quiet during those bank bailouts under Bush... Do you recall that TD?

    First, an individual wealthy person may not be impacted by Earl's suggested taxing policy as he or she could be retired or own a company that is totally in the U.S. Second, his plan is tyranny in that he is dictating to companies how much of their business has to be in the U.S.

    Tyranny: Oppressive power exerted by government.

    What Earl is seeking is oppressive, authoritarian tyranny. If a company does $60 billion in the U.S. and $40 billion overseas, the company cannot expand their business unless they come out with new products for the U.S. market (which may not be in their best interest) or are able to capture a larger share of the U.S. market (which may not be that likely). God help them if they lose market share to a competitor in the U.S. or gain a new contract overseas.
    Earl merely demonstrates that many on the left have mutated from seeing the government as a tool to comfort the afflicted to merely wanting it to afflict the comfortable.

    Its a form of societal vandalism. If I cannot have wealth I want the government to prevent others from having it to.

    I have not been appointed spokesperson to speak for those people. I have always opposed said bailouts-bailouts that the unions were very much in favor of

    using the bailouts as an excuse to wage class warfare against everyone in the top 2% is pathetic.

    The bank bailouts was used as an "excuse.... by unions.... to wage class warfare against everyone in the top 2%"?

    Rich Kids are not parasites on anyone. They aren't feeding on the system. The money they got was from the free will of others.

    those who support income redistribution-mainly to buy the votes of those addicted to entitlements-feel a need to excuse such behavior by whining about heirs

    and then they claim ENVY does not motivate their postings

    Who are you to use a system of force to make me pay for a service for you? You can demand all kinds of things and believe you are entitled to it. You are still not entitled to my money.

    Without the working class, there is no wealth for the uber rich to suck away. This was the lesson of the 1920's that we are seeing repeated today.
