Forum Post: Half A Million$$$ For Every Family

This content is user submitted and not an official statement

I think that should be our new catch phrase

since thats what every household would own if all the wealth were divided equally in the US

as ridiculous as that would be to say, IT WOULD BE FUN, and alot of poor people would join us for the fun of it

p.s. this is just a joke, to amuse myself

A joke in poor taste. Life is hard. Times are rough. We all have to take a roll of the dice. And, in this country, it can be done again and again.
That is not necessarily your fault. The problem is that there are a lot of people out there who believe in this myth of wealth redistribution.

[-] -1 points by freewriterguy (882) 2 years ago

the obvious problem is noone would show up to work, however, we could be awarded in chunks based upon job performance.

[-] -1 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

It's been said that even if wealth were distributed equally; within a a few years or so there would once again be a division of classes. I'm betting the people who are wealthy now would end up in the upper class and the people who are poor now would go right back to the lower class.

Then what? Another redistribution?

why are you even on this web site, at all, with regurgitated shit like that

[-] -3 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know this site was reserved for idiots who cannot make a solid argument.

Maybe if you're so concerned you would investigate and put in a little effort on your own part, and not rely on everyone to do your homework for you.

But I know I shouldn't expect much from half of this OWS crowd who are entitled to everything. ↥twinkle ↧stinkle reply permalink ↥twinkle ↧stinkle reply edit delete permalink

Maybe the way to prevent economic stratification is to have something like a "jubilee" every 50 years like the Jews, resetting everyone to an equal level of wealth.

Our present stratification has been developing for well over 200 years. At the rate it is presently growing, within 20 years we will have only two groups, masters and servants.

[-] -3 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

Wouldn't that be nice. It seems like a good excuse for people to squander all their wealth, since they can eventually just obtain more from someone else.

[-] 4 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

Do you honestly think that just 1% of the people earned 40% of the wealth in this country?

[-] -3 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

Hell no I don't think they "earned" it. But they still found a way to siphon and funnel all the wealth in their direction. And they'd most likely figure out how do it again after re-distribution.

I'm not condoning the ways of the elites. I just don't think re-distribution would solve anything in the long run.

[-] 2 points by jrhirsch (4714) from Sun City, CA 2 years ago

I understand your free market thinking, I think the same way too. But you can see where we are headed. As unfair as redistribution sounds, it is the better of two difficult choices. One where a few lose their fortunes to the many, or one where the few further increase their fortunes by taking even the necessities of the lives of many, reducing them to poverty.

The free market is a great system, but when perverted by injustice, corruption, and bribery, it becomes an unfair market. Don't be blinded by love for the free market system. It is not at fault, the people within it are. The system needs to be reset periodically to alleviate the economic suffering within.

This is where we are headed:

Of course you would be offended by a name like jimmycrackerson, living in Coon Rapids and all.

[-] 3 points by DKAtoday (23961) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Is Crackerson your real last name? If so was cracker baking a part of your family history?

What's the problem with Coon Rapids?

You're not writing your own sources again, are you?

[-] -3 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

Do I need to spell everything out for you?

Google: "Coon"

Kitty vs Raccoon - YouTube

Coon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coon Coon may refer to: Coon, an abbreviation for fur from raccoons and racoon dogs; Coon, an alternative name for Maine Coon · Coön (Κόων, Κόωνος), a Trojan ... The Coon - Raccoon - Coonhound

[-] 3 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

I'm more concerned with the intent of your personal interpretation.

That is, after all what's important here.

It's the kind of thing you're becoming notorious for evading.

[-] 3 points by DKAtoday (23961) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Hey I was just curious.

R U trying to say with your user name - that your Dad is a cracker?

BTW - Coon Rapids (?) coon is short for Raccoon.

[-] -3 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

That's not what I was going for when I created this log. But I can see how it's easy for you get so hung up on my username.

Especially since a lot of people on this forum take comments out of context and turn it around on the poster, trying to pass off worthless drivel as a valid argument.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (23961) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I thought it was actually kind of fitting 4 U as you spout a lot of crap.

[-] 1 points by nazihunter (215) 2 years ago

You answered it, OK. No, they didn't earn it. They STOLE it. So, the whole fucking argument about re-distribution is a MISNOMER. It's defunct. It doesn't apply

Well, I don't know who said it. And I don't have sources to back up the statement. But I do know that I read more than one time from more than one different sources. I figured it would be common knowledge to most people.

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Not surprisingly the mystery remains.

The "common knowledge" bit does make it sound like something from FLAKESnews though.

Always quick with a lie.

You made the silly statement, not me.

You seem to think you're entitled to your own personal "facts" and sources of those "facts".

Now you tell me I'm supposed to look up your lies?

Geeze you're pitiful.

Yes, another redistrbution ! You're obviously brilliant.

And thank you for turning off Rush Limbaugh, long enough to respond to my post. Quick now get back to him for more ideas

[-] -1 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

Since I found gaping holes in your stupid idea, that means I listen to right-wing talk shows? It's not my fault you're logically impaired.

Here's another one:

How are you going to go about acquiring everyone's money for redistribution? Are people just going to willfully hand their assets over? Not likely.

[-] 3 points by know1 (210) 2 years ago

It would be a joke.

but your first comment, implying the poor are poor because their own shortcomings, and thats where they would always be, is disgusting and you might as well be listening to your buddy Rush

[-] -2 points by jimmycrackerson (940) from Blackfoot, ID 2 years ago

You don't think people who sell products and services are going to jack up their prices in the short-term because they know everyone will be able to afford them?

Or should we spilt all the businesses 310 million ways so everyone gets a fair share? And if so, why would anyone want to go through the effort of running a business if they know that will just be taken away from them?

Or did you even think your cunning plan through very well?

It doesn't. It creates more wealth for people who already have wealth.

Kind of like throwing a big "sweet 16" for America when we should be rebuilding infrastructure, creating jobs for Americans, and leaving something for future generations to work with.

ur right, its scripture based, only those that work for their wealth keep it while those whom it is "given" to will lose it according to scripture, a word from your local melchizedek priest which I doubt any of you believe in.
