The propagnada has worked quite well hasn't it?
This entire thread has everyone arguing whether people "deserve" what they have...
Did they work for what they have?
Is someone who takes advantage of social safety nets a lazy bum? blah blah blah
I don't think anyone on this forum has yet to admit that they fall into the Rich catagory, so all we have is poor people fighting with other poor
people about $5,000 to $10,000 differences in wages and who falls into the poverty catagory!
Well congratulations! Most of you are bickering over an imaginary wage marker that tells you whether you're poor or not! If you are not a corporate
man, or a hedge fund manager, you are fricken' poor! Some of you have even been on some sort of SOCIAL assistance and can justify it just fine, but
someone else uses that same assistance and they must be lazy bums!
I love articles like this because it shows how the income desparity is at an all-time high, and how they can get the poor people to fight against
other poor people on behalf of the rich. Suckers!
I also find it funny that this entire argument is based on what these people pay in federal income taxes, but the big amounts add up in day to day
sales taxes, state taxes, property taxes, etc. Poor people, no matter what you naysayers think, pay a lot of money in taxes! Yet the very wealthy
people I happen to know are very intelligent and find ways out of paying large amounts of federal income taxes, and they roll their personal property
taxes and state taxes into business expenses.
So I disagree with the notion that the wealthy pay most the taxes. In fact, I call shenanigans on that one!
edit to add:
We need to start working together folks! Crap like this only serves to divide an enslave!
