    Well that is pretty stupid as the vast majority of crimes are committed by a small number of criminals.

    Oh, and guess what is the major cause? Prenatal and infant nutritional issues.

    But never mind, you feel no need to give back to society from which you benefited.

    go ahead and revolt. I actually would like to see that happen rather than the long slow slide towards mediocrity where most people will allow it to happen
    Keep pushing for inequality and you will get it. But this is the same crazy, nutty attitude that caused some to want the banks to collapse in 2008.


    start the revolution and we will get rid of the malignancy of public teat suckers rather quickly

    and you should start your revolution on my driveway. I have all these neat tools that I'd love to test out
    You are just a sad person.

    It's down right stupid to call a police force that is more likely to not be around when a crime happens a security force. No offense, but if that is a security force it's a downright ****ty one.

    actually I am very happy. I don't sit around whining or worrying that someone else might be wealthier than I am

    I also don't feel a need to pretend I am doing something for "the greater good" as you do

    Re: Income Inequality

    Back in the 50's there were less things to purchase (appliances, electronics, technology, etc), people were more prioritized (mature) towards providing the basics first and corporate wealth had not hit the point of having such influence on political decisions, or having extensive industry monopolization and harmful global trade.

    Eventually, in every historic setting of a successful economy, the flow of wealth spreads evenly before going steadily upward. The strain and disintegration of fiscal responsibility winds up imploding the markets and federal gov't in a series of ruptures. What happened in 2008 is doomed to reoccur on a more protracted scale, since enough serious steps to prevent it didn't happen.

    It's only a matter of time before the FED pumping up market assets, with QE, will have to stop. Then there may be a domino of corrections, which starts another downward spiral. We can't continue to grow the economy with credit, social programs and money printing, it's a flawed concept that needs a set of balancing factors.

    As I said, you still will not admit to the destabilizing that inequality brings. 2008 did not phase you, perhaps a revolution would.
    Lets hope so. The tree of liberty must occasionally be refreshed by the tears of liberals.

    I don't question your consciousness, but I wonder about your conscience.
