Billionaires didn't do that for you.

Consumers did. Someone BOUGHT something from the place you work for.

That place would exist without mega-corporations. Even if you work for a mega-corp, someone could replace it with a smaller business.

Lots of small businesses = flourishing economy. Mega-corps = dying middle class - literally, and financially.

I cannot prove it, but it's been my thought process for many years.

We are far too capitalistic, competitive, market this and that to talk about such logic.

A thousand years ago a farmer would not purposefully grow cops in soil that does not result in food - Especially if it's not even enough food to feed his family. Nor would a hunter knowingly choose a bad route to hunt - One that does not produce

Now days, a worker will work 40 or more hours a week for a job that does not provide them enough money to feed their family. These jobs should outright be rejected by the worker, but we are in a different mind-set, we are not following logic, we are desperate, we are closer to slaves of the fate chosen for us rather than choosing our own. The inequality has gone too far, and at this point, I choose the "everyone equal " part of your quote.


I take it you choose material equality over equality before the law?

Just an example of Bernie's ignorance.

Universal Healthcare.

How do you CENTRALLY PLAN and account for expenditures when you do not even know the true count of Legal citizens in your nation needing coverage, qualifying for it, where, who, what, etc.

We don't even know the number of qualified people to be COVERED or what stop gaps we have to insure a correct central planning. And Bernie's plan would mean a total repeal of ObamaCare, an entire Congressional argument for ANOTHER 2 years, selling that idea to Congress...AGAIN...passing the votes...and retooling the entire Medical Industry AGAIN.

??? What the????

LOL...how is that even possible?


Other countries seem to handle Universal healthcare pretty well. I would say their knowledge of who qualifies and who doesn't is on par with the US.


LMAO

Take the rate of DIABETICS in our nation alone. Take the fact that we have a very UNHEALTHY populace which only LATELY starting showing up in the Obamacare data, as being the NON VIABLE drag on the system...which is why the largest insurer in America is DROPPING Obamacare.

And Bernie wants to revisit Healthcare to a NEW Republican Congress...retool the entire industry again...revisit contracts...reams and reams of legal paper...sell it to voters AGAIN...and start from scratch...on TOP of his already higher tax rates?

This is INSANITY....there is NO way this would even work. It's hysterical to even see people talking about it like we're in Disneyland and some Fairy Queen has a magic wand for all Bernie's wishes.

What happened to LOGIC?


Well, we don;t have the MOST unhealthy population, but even if we did, all the more reason for universal healthcare.

Yes, it would be a long road to go but-

"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too." -JFK


And under Bernie's 'plans' we would be a BROKE nation with great healthcare.

Which there are about 100 nations just like that across the globe and in history which are now thinking "We may have screwed up guys"

Adding 4 years onto your lifespan SUCKS when your dead broke for your entire generation.

Postponing progress due to the inability to see further than the short-term is definitely insanity.

Let's just let this nation rot and burn because we think change is too hard!

JFK ended up shot dead by his fellows from CIA as a result of the decision that has been made by TPTB shortly after, so that's why these things won't happen again.

I don't believe we would be broke. We would be healthier and have more people that can work. A healthy populace always leads to more workers, more industry and more money. You have is backwards.

I believe in what benefits the most. Not what CAN benefit someone... So I guess I do believe more in equal slices of pie, to unequal people, but only because the other way around.. The people that DEEM THEMSELVES more worthy, just take the whole pie and leave you the crumbs. This is not logical... That is not material, nor equality before the law.

A job should not logically exist if it cannot support a person. A person should logically deny such a position, leveraging the business to either close, or become more reasonable in their offer.

Maybe.

You forget that Walmart and Target and others like them already exist. They've already laid the groundwork and done the hard job of jumping through hoops that government regulations put in their way AND they existed long before the current government regulatory regime.

The regime we have in place now is antithetical to business growth. If it weren't, we'd have a booming economy all over, but we don't. It's barely eeking along and even the very large employers are having trouble.

That's OK and consistent with advocating totalitarianism.

More workers do not equal more industry.

I could be working full-time right now, but that job does not exist for me. Why? Because there is NO business creating that job.

You can have a populace that's healthy as a horse, but if none of your businesses are healthy, then it won't matter.

Right. What they are now does not reflect how they got there - But I truly believe in a flourishing economy, someone could come up with a great idea, and threaten walmarts ( If not only locally ) but.. There's no chance.

Walmart uses their super-status to leverage extremely low prices from manufacturing companies.
They pay the lowest wages possible for the work done - Huge amount of employees on welfare.
They have so many lawsuits against them for every reason you can think of.

Sam Walton is an example of the American dream.

Current day Walmart is not.

You're assuming that people are unhealthy because they don't have insurance. The problem is you're dead wrong. People have insurance and are too lazy to go to the doctor and plain just don't care about their health. They'd rather eat fast food three times a day and drink a gallon of Coke then expend an iota of energy living a healthy lifestyle.

Higher crime, more racial issues, extreme political ideology is often born in large cities...

Places like Wal mart and Target overbuilt stores. Now they are closing many.

Wal mart gave as little hours as they could, paid as little as they could and gave seminars on how their employees could apply for food stamps and medicaid. Wal mart went around local environmental laws and dumped waste in nearby streams and rivers.

I don't have much knowledge about target, but I know Wal mart has always been a bad actor and the government didn;t cause their greed. Wal mart is definitely not a good job creator. They are a drain on the system for their own greed.
