Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
There was no middle class in China, and yet there was domestic demand. People built restaurants, factories, all based on domestic demand. Like I said before, one company built Air Conditioning units for domestic demand. Another built a massive network of small restaurants, from domestic demand. Another built a company to produces roofs for homes, all based on domestic demand.
There is always.... as in ALWAYS.... domestic demand. I've already gotten you to making blind proclamations of 'getting me to concede' something I never opposed to begin with. Are you just admitting that you lost this discussion?
And I've already shot down that irrelevant article in the other thread. Nothing has changed between that thread, and this one.
I'm an independent thinker. I consider both sides of every story, and I analyze every bit of information I'm given.
Unlike the idiotic left, of which you seem to be identifying yourself with, I don't simply hear some statement by anyone... even the OECD, and blindly accept it as divine truth from some pseudo-god. But apparently you, like the vast majority of leftist, do simply switch off your useless brains, and just drink the cool-aide, and start parroting whatever dumb talking point you read or hear somewhere.
In short... I think. Something most of the left is largely incapable of. That's why you read a bunch of Huffington Post articles written by unpaid, and largely unsupervised staff, mindlessly repeat them like they were engraved on golden tablets, and then whiny like a baby about conservatives listening to Rush Limbaugh or whoever. Hypocrisy and the left go hand in hand.
Then when you come to me with your enshrined divine wisdom from the OECD, and are shocked I actually check the sources, check the research, analyze the findings, and even.... dare to commit the heresy of disputing the claim! *GASP!* Sparkles questioned our divine pseudo god's wisdom!! And of course like any blind follower of some divine fake truth, if anyone questions it, you attack them with sarcasm and insults. Welcome to the leftist Jonestown.
No, you have just decided to toss your brain in the trash can, in order to accept anything you already agree with as truth. I have chosen to learn and question independently of your dogma.

many of those in the bottom 20% are paying sales taxes with moneys taken from others and given to them through income redistribution programs. It is a bit dishonest to bray about how much taxes some of those people pay.
Your rants about what my child deserves or doesn't deserve is specious nonsense. Its pathetic for you to even have any say on this issue
