    this is utter bullshit

    I am glad you have bettered yourself

    How come you are not a millionaire?

    Cant' everyone be a millionaire?

    Obviously everyone who isn't a millionaire is a lazy good for nothing


    when we are all millionaires, who sweeps the floors?

    Let em guess, the up and coming soon to be millionaires

    People are not all equally allotted brains, opportunity or education

    Half of people are below average

    But everyone deserves to be able to eat and live indoors

    your inability to understand what it is like to be someone other than yourself is what has created the climate of selfishness pervasive today

    Well said. I 100% agree with everything you said in your previous post, and I appreciate that you called out his toxic attitude.

    Exactly. The trump cult has been led to believe that everyone in the world can be CEO's and nobody needs to haul the trash or grow our crops. It's very sad.

    Careful there. If you pat yourself on the back too hard you might injure your back and not be able to work anymore.

    Next question then. How will the people who used to sweep floors feed themselves and their families when roomba takes over their jobs? Become CEO's?

    Financialization has brought us to where we are at. The companies that I dealt with, invariably were bought up by "investment groups" only to be run into the ground, plundered by the new owners...............Which brings me to call our current economy, The Plunder Economy............And Frederic Bastiat had a very relevant quote for our time: “When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.”

    I need to take a look at the film............even though it has the stench of Barry on it, really doubt if he did anything more than "be associated" with it.........after all, he spent nearly a billion dollars on "shovel ready jobs" that proved to not be shovel ready, he even admitted to that.

    And why is there a "plunder economy"?.....simple ..Joe Punchclock demands his pension fund /investment s produce 10% pa return.,and screams when his stocks fall in value,demands a spill of the board...CEO is hired solely to "grow stock price",fired for the opposite result.Thats where the plunder economy comes from.

    I think they paid to distribute it.

    So much better to just give money straight to your cronies, or preferably yourself like trumpski does...

    I wish more would actually watch the film, then we could at least have a conversation on the merits of whether it is a commie documentary or not

    Pretty funny since investment banks buy a company to first plunder its pension

    AS crooked as the UAW may be, it cannot be purchased and liquidated, which is why, even with the corruption union pensions continue to exist

    I remember when 401k's were being pimped, the sales pitch was "we can't guarantee that you will get 8% every year, but wink wink, you're going to make 8% a year"
    With the destruction of other interest bearing investment opportunities, the stock market has been left as the only viable way to get ANY return. I was fortunate to be out of it during the '08 debacle.......but as with a lot of people, have had to get in, or not have anything. As long as the Fed keeps creating funny money, which helps to drive asset prices, I have done pretty well, but I am not under any illusions.

    I love it when people are afraid of information they might disagree with or (more likely) won't understand.

    My objection to all the asset inflation by "easing",is that the land I live on rises in value all the time......its still the same weed covered ,worn out farm it always was,but the tax value has gone over $2 million Oz pesos,consequently ,my property taxes are sky high .I also have another block of land ,just a stinkin swamp,but because I sold the next door block for a million pesos,Im taken to the cleaners on that too......I get no more value out of any of this land than I ever did,less actually since I became decrepit.....yet I pay ever higher taxes/

    You get no value from this land, but you sold part of it for a million bucks, and the rest is worth more and more all the time...

    Sounds like a raw deal, I'll take it off your hands for you bud, just to save you the hassle.

    Fail to make those tax payments and see who actually owns it.........We are all just renters.
