Oh pleeee eezze. Bill Gates asked one of my friends to be his first investor, so did Steve Jobs. There are a trillion nerds. How do you figure Bill
Gates by the age of 21 or so earned the right to a personal fortune of what is it now, 80 billion dollars. At least ALL the money should have been
divided up equally among the people who did the work, all the EMPLOYEES.
How about all the risk takers who start businesses with no money, they take out loans or use their savings or home equity, like the lady who
invented Baby Einstein, not knowing wether they'll end up in bankruptcy.
I have no gripe with those people. They're not obscenely rich, are they. HOWEVER, there should be income caps ... since money is imaginary by popular
consent to have value in the first place, why not share it instead of letting people like the international bankers OWN AND ENSLAVE US?
This country was built by hard working risk takers.
Very naive baloney. Historically, ALL the great "blue-blood" fortunes in this country were earned by opium-running, slave-trading, war profiteering,
oil monopolies, corporate land grabs by bribing congress, and private bankers who own the Fed's inflation-deflation pyramid schemes.
Would you sacrifice all your time or money to do what these people did with no guarantee on return?
Are you out of your mind? 99% of Americans do this RIGHT NOW. The only saving grace of America is social security, and the dam* capitalists are trying
to privatize that ... while calling it socialism.
Dam* right. REDISTRIBUTE ALL WEALTH IN THE U.S. RIGHT NOW, democratic socialism is the only way to go. REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH.
Cap individual earnings at a million dollars, and/or just give a million dollars to everyone in america. period.
Either you believe in Mr. & Mrs. God or you don't. Either you nurture people, or you don't. Either you have compassion, or you don't. But we should
never allow ourselves to remain as mind-controlled robots.
You're NOT a capitalist, you have no trust fund and YOU can't go take out a thousand dollars spending cash out of your trust fund every day LIKE THE
CAPITALISTS CAN -- you're a make-believe capitalist, don't you get it?
