You can live in a poor state making 250,000 a year and be in the one-percent.

Nation wide, and world wide, it's way up in the billions. The Gates. Warren Buffett, the Duponts', the Rothchilds, the Rockerfellers, et. al. THOSE people are the REAL one-percent, and the ones whose decisions buy power. Not little millionaires. Sorry I pissed you off by telling you you are not in the one-percent. At least not in the actual ONE-PERCENT that we mean when we talk about the one-percent.

I heard Joy Behar, a TV personality say one day SHE was in the one-percent, and I started laughing. Don't have a clue what the one-percent actually is.

But hon, if you want to think you are in the one-percent, you go right ahead, I don't want to hurt your ego.

Those aren't the 1%. They are the .0001%. BIG difference. The 1% meme is misleading and false.

As I stated, in the US to be a 1%er, you only need to make $375k. To be a 1%er in terms of wealth, you need to have about $8 million in assets.

GLOBALLY, to be a 1%er, you only need to make about $37k/yr. Wealth wise, you need about $700k in assets.

The take away is that almost anyone who works a full time job in the US is considered part of the 1% globally income wise.

What you don't get is that your liberal handlers love to talk about the .0001% (taxing the hedge fund guys make $50 million), etc but then when they write the tax law, they are actually just taxing the upper and middle class. In case you can't count, there is a significant difference between making $375k and $50 million. The $375k guy is a 1%er but he is not in the same social circle as someone making several million a year.

Pretty soon all the middle class will be poor. I guess that's what the USA wants? A few super rich and everyone else poor?

I think it's nuts for anyone to cheer for someone else having to pay more taxes, in the first place. Are those people mentally ill?


They're just paid seat-fillers....they'll cheer for anything....

I think she just misspoke but why the idiots in the crowd clapped...I would have been like "Wooo wait a mo what did you say? raise taxes on the middle class booo!".

Would this be considered "proof" that those sitting behind Clinton are paid to be there and applaud everything she says?
The rest of the cheering may well have been over the speakers, they did that at the DNC along with the prompters telling people what to chant and when.

God bless spontaneity.
That woman is flying by the seat of her pants suit I tell ya.

Oh for FRACK'S SAKE. You people have selective goddamn hearing, I swear to god. She said AREN'T going to raise taxes on the MC, not are.

Your first tip off, by the way, that the article was rightwinger bullchit was the retarded article author who spelled it "right", not "write".

Edit: And yes, it is supposed to be "write" fairer laws, not right fairer laws. Why correct laws already fair? Poor writing, period.

“Because while Warren is standing up for a fairer tax code, Trump wants to cut taxes for the super rich. Well we’re not going there, my friends. I'm telling you right now… We're going to write fairer rules for the middle class and we are going to raise taxes* on the middle class.”

*Barking seals start their applause right on cue.


Now I can see an argument from the Hillary lovers that she said "aren't"... there is some kid of tick there that could be something and she can't be a total moron, but I don't hear an inflection or change in tone to suggest she was saying a negative or contradiction of the statement. Her cadence for "we're" is the same as when she says "are" So when I have this clip cranked up to max volume on my computer I am not hearing 'aren't.'

If it can't make it out clearly to all of us, and if there is debate this long on this thread, how are those people behind her hearing it clearly? All they really heard is "we are going to raise taxes" before they start clapping... assuming she was about to say 'on the super rich.'

She said "aren't" with a very soft T, but she said aren't

Read her lips..


besides, why would you follow-up "fairer rules" with an immediate "we are going to raise taxes"..

the worst feeling here is that I am defending one of two horrible candidates., stop making me do that.

I'm going to go sit in the corner now and strum my lips....




Hillary and the [SNIP] have to raise the taxes on the middle class...Starting in 2017 all the illegal immigrants that Hillary will bring into the country are eligible for Social Security benefits...Hillary and the people that support her are flat out nuts...

What in the world is the appeal to hillary??? She's done nothing...She proposes nothing...
