    Yah they bring the cops and have you arrested if you lay a hand on any of them. And if you try anything where a cop can’t see you get shot by the guy that has a conceal and carry license.

    The words "fair" or "fairness" are meaningless to use to decide any real figure.

    Then we shoot all the cops and all the goons with guns that are traitors to thier class........

    Ludlow massacre
    "In retaliation for Ludlow, the miners armed themselves and attacked dozens of mines over the next ten days, destroying property and engaging in several skirmishes with the Colorado National Guard along a 40-mile front from Trinidad to Walsenburg"

    How about this to prevent al l that........... you follow the NLRA. But we know you have not for the last 30 years....

    But if the trans national rich want to make slaves of US Citizens, they will be sorly sorry.

    To really solve the problem we need a law like mexico has.

    Theft is theft no matter what you call it.
    First, who said anything about this? I didn't bring it up. I was just discussing the general principle that:

    1) Distribution of wealth simply refers to the actual distribution of wealth, not the rightful or just distribution of wealth.

    2) If wealth is distributed unjustly, clearly redistribution is the right action.

    Would you not agree with this principle? It seems pretty clear-cut to me. But if I'm right, redistribution of wealth, in itself, is not unjust or morally wrong. Which means, in turn, that your first reply to my question is false. Redistribution of wealth is not always theft.

    Second, I disagree with your assessment of poverty and wealth in our society. But you're doing nothing other than asserting. What sorts of arguments can you bring in support of your position?

    Not really, it is entirely possible to have growth with large unemployment these days. You do not need to make anything to make money, or you do not need to make anything in AMERICA to make money.
