Workers do have the right to organize right now.

Most minimum wage jobs are done by people who don't have a family. So when you raise the minimum wage you hurt high school and college students trying to make a little extra money.

Discussion of minimum wage increase

I think that companies that outsource should face a huge tax penalty to the point that it would cost more then they could save.

I don't believe that spending more money on education is the answer. You can research the Kansas city school district if you're interested. They spent over a billion dollars to create some of the best schools with high paid teachers and it hasn't helped the students. (It may have helped some individual students but statistically it was a waste of money) I do think that we could change the school system so that in the eighth or ninth grade students would take a test and if you don't pass you should be provided an education geared towards learning a trade rather then pretending that you're college bound. That way for those not in the college bound group, they would have some skills when they got out of high school .

Good video, hardly surprising though.

There's only one way to make the rich at the top of the heap crumble and nobody would actually do that. Quit being their slaves working for them, buying fuel and goods. Dislodge the foundation. Stop lining their pockets. Of course it isn't practical when you have bills to pay. They know that and they've been making sure you keep struggling to pay your bills and eat. Their motto is " a hungry dog will hunt".

This isn't something they planned recently. They've thought this out decades ago. Set everything into place with the banks etc.

It's the same plan the royals, elites, and uber-rich have used for millennia. They use the same tactics over and over. And we fall for them, again and again.
Of course, once we realize it each time, it's too late.

I get so tired of ignorant people repeating what they hear.

These top 10% did not work harder than the people in the middle class. In fact most of them work a lot less than you or I do. They got that money by legally stealing it from you. They have a narrow scope of moral values and make that money be making it so YOU agree to work for less.

WTF is wrong with the right think mindset? I have always been a moderate, I am 50 years old and have never seen anything like these fanatics brainwashing. Its like a cheap horror movie. Night of the living right.

Buddy, I know you mean well, but you're spewing out garbage. The majority of the top 10% are not thieves, and I would agree that the majority do in fact work MUCH harder than the average middle class employee.

It's a small portion of the 1% who is actively gaming the system.

Get real.

Get real? I am as real as it gets. You do not become that rich without gaming the system. I own a cafe and work as hard as a human can. What do you do nomnom?

lol at "communist" comment.

Raising taxe for rich would not make them ( fly away ). Maybe they will try to send cash to "fiscal paradise" but they will stay in USA if they are proud of being american.

Lol, Canada got free care and USA cant afford it ? xD. Non-sense.

Good point.

Stop bailing out private corporations.
Stop the QE automated theft campaign.
Shutdown the Federal Reserve.
Remove fluoride ion from drinking water.
Conduct non-rigged elections.
Shutdown DHS.
Ban aspartame and neotame for human consumption.
Massively restrict the federal government.
Restrict the executive branch powers back to the limits of the US constitution and bill of rights.

This is obviously a pro-socialism, obozo inspired propaganda piece - just like the "life of julia", and the film about "stuff" that all college students are made to watch - brought to you by cass sunstien and the un depopulation crowd.



you are obviously a shill for the status quoe if you truly believe that..

as a Human being do you now care about your fellow Human?

did you know that we are all one species on planet Earth?

wake up, there is more to life than having more than someone else.

it's ALL about consciousness..

there is nothing we can do about it.
the rich are not going to change their ways.

all we can do is wait for the crash.

If the top 1% have 40% of the wealth I predict that the 99% will seize that wealth through force. America solves all its problems through violence. If I was in the 1% I would leave America while I can.

This is the article about the video going viral.

And here's the video...



So, if the article is accurate and this thing's on its way to being as influential as it seems like it could be, what's next? I mean, seriously, check out the video and you tell me if you think this isn't information that could really mess with the average hardworking person's ability to allow the status quo to persist in this nation.

But, short of eliminating the top 10% (definitely the top 1%) what's the answer? Tax cuts? "Free" market deregulation? Austerity measures inflicted on the bottom 80%?

And if so, are you ready for the bloodshed?



The French Revolution comes to mind when I see how slanted the numbers are.

It's not an injustice if you give it to them, and that's exactly what the 99% does.

Blame yourselves because it was your money.

The old appeals to racial, sexual, religious chauvinism and to rabid nationalist fervor are invalid.

Monetary systems are false societies. Those societies will go down in history as humanities lowest developments.
We have the brains, the know-how, the technology and the feasibility to build entirely new civilizations.
