Ah, I love it when things are taken out of context.


Removing all things, including wealth. The rich man will become rich again. The poor man will remain poor.

Giving away crap, that was first taken from someone solves nothing.



Why is the rich man rich?
-generational inherited wealth and business
-access to post secondary education where one is not bound by debt in gaining it
-contacts created through one of the two above scenarios...

Poor person
-didn't try in school because was hungry due to the closing of the factory where mom worked...all the owners reaped windfall profits from moving the labor to china. They toasted with scotches and played golf.


Karma will come your way.

Of course you leave out the possibility that someone gets rich in an honest or hardworking manner
and some one is poor because the mean old rich man took from that.

Not because the poor person is a drunk , a drug user, a gambler ...

Being poor is no more or less noble then being rich..

You are the one with the foot in your mouth.

Here is your statement about wealth distribution.

You clearly see wealthy people as superior, that the rich will always succeed beyond the average.

All you are looking for is a king to worship, might was well bring about a new aristocracy in your world view, the war lard police state, because the rich, according to you, will always rise to the top.

I suggest you watch this interview of David Simon from Bill moyers

If you still don't get it you are part of the problem not the solution

That's great, do you have the Matrix stream as a background also?

What I know is being successful isn't bad. Achieving financial stability isn't bad. Having a good job in a field that makes a difference, isn't bad. Being happy in life and living it the way I want isn't bad. Along the same lines being poor doesn't mean you are a crook or desperate. People want to use economic class as a convenient way to explain their problems and that is just not something I have time for.

I paid off $26000 in credit card debt because it was my fault for accumulating it and i wasn't going to ask for a do over with bankruptcy, I know what it's like to have to spend weeks at a time living off water and ramen.

I'm not going to feel bad for not having to do that now and if that makes me part of the problem, oh well..I'm part of the problem.

Which part of my stance on the OP is ignorance?

The part where I said give homeless people free housing for 2 years with the expectation they will use free training, schooling, medical treatment then kick them out of they don't change so some one else can use those resources? Or some other part?

I have news for you..the world as a whole is screwed. It's easy for people here to blame everything on the TPTB , NSA, CIA, Masons, Illuminati , whatever. Having a scapegoat makes it easy to fail.

Do all countries in the world sit on the precipice of chaos? Yes and it's been that way since forever because the one common point to all of it is mankind. You have very wonderful and noble rich people, very horrible and evil poor people, rapists that have all the money in the world, someone that has $5 to their name and gives it to the family living on the street. Humanity is the problem and all you can do is try and change the world in some way.

Because he/she learned how to create their wealth.

All the rest is your biased retorts, using envy and jealously in disguise.

You clearly don't get it.


Nowhere in that statement, does it elude to, suggest, lean towards a police state, bigger Govt or worship.
You truly need to re-evaluate how you are reading things.

It in the very basic form means that all the Socialist Utopian wet dreams of wealth redistribution can occur. At the end of the day, the person that was right before, will be rich again. The poor will be poor again.

Wealth has very little to do with economic situations, and more about the person.

Would be a good idea, to make use of abandoned, dead properties that are simply being sat on. Redevelop them into housing for the poor and homeless, with incentives for job retraining and home/apartment ownership. It actually worked quite well in Britain, when Maggie Thatcher made council houses available for purchase by their inhabitants. Ownership creates pride, ownership is incentive, motivation. There is no motivation in the current system, and there is so much waste in terms of the amount of property not being utilized. Banks and other institutions simply sitting on property without doing anything useful with it.

I would much rather see tax dollars go to helping to fix the massive urban blight and poverty problems within our borders than being spent propping up dictators, buying 40,000 toilet seats, or bailing out banks and other irresponsible, unethical financial institutions. Or giving subsidies to oil companies who continue to gouge the crap of my paycheck with the cost of gas and electricity than any taxation has ever done.
