As we all know the most pressing threat to the world today is rich people becoming less rich. Today we watch the continuing media circus as several late-middle aged rich white christian males take time out of being the richest people in the world to attempt to become the most powerful man in the world, and late-middle-aged rich white christian males everywhere celebrate, because their voices are finally being heard. It's shameful to watch as a man is confronted by his attempt to have an open marriage and still have as much casual sex as possible, ignoring the important issues such as his daring policy that even if a woman is raped or impregnated by incest, an abortion is illegal. When will the news media stop beating up on rich white christian males? American values of hard work and drive to suceed are being fatally undermined by people touting notions such as "hard work and screwing your neigbour are not intrinsically linked" and "There is such a thing as enough money" or "People exist even when you hold your hand over your eyes so you can't see them". Socialism, the dangerous notion that money and success are subsidiary to quality of life for anyone you have never had a drink with, threatens to destroy our very way of life. The great danger posed by a group of people asking "where's all the money gone" to our right to uphold capitalist values such as dumping toxic waste in rivers and seawaters must never be underestimated. To provide an excellent analysis of why the capitalist system must be upheld is our resident member of the 53%, Rich/white/christian/male (delete whichever is inappropriate), Terwonick. I can't directly oppose this, but it feels a little like saying the next civil war will start in Ridlington-By-Thames, population 140 or something. What do you mean by "lowest economic state"? And by "it must be 2x worse for everyone else? Which 130 years were these? Were they concurrent? Are you skipping the great depression, the first world war, arguably the second world war, the cold war, the 1980's depression, starvation in third world countries, and americans selling weapons to gulf states? I want to get my facts straight, see. Of course you could be referring to earlier years. The 130 years between the hunting to extinction of bison, the trafficikng of human slaves, the deaths of hundreds yearly by cigarette smoke due to carcinogens that it's more capitalist to take money from than to regulate, and the invention of the fiat pinto, the only car more temperamental than your average vidogame explosive barrel, because when human lives interfere with money they must be instantly dealt with. I just want to get my facts straight, here. 0.0 ;.; Tax money goes back into the economy. Except, instead of going to the people that do a good job of shouting ME ME ME MONEY HERE, it goes to things like schools and hospitals. Admittedly, considerably less than perfectly, but would you have given that money to womens refuge shelters? I'm going to place a wager before i click on this link, or google that name. Peter Schiff will be a late-middle-age, rich, white, christian, male. Its good that their voices are being heard. EDIT: Shit i'm good.
