you are clearly a twit, so brainwashed by profits, that you of course assume every other person is too. you are sad, and more than a little bit pathetic. envy is when I want something that you have, personally being a millionaire, does not bring about a just society.

What we want is a just society, not to be above our peers, to have power over them, but to be with them, on a level playing field.

keep your money hording schemes on the corporate business sites, thanks.

"envy is when I want something that you have" That's exactly what OWS is all about. Good luck

[-] 3 points by jph (2652) 2 years ago

I see, you are unable to read;

"What we want is a just society, not to be above our peers, to have power over them, but to be with them, on a level playing field."

Don't tell others what they want,. you have no idea at all.

[-] -3 points by Dell (-168) 2 years ago

never happen there always has & always will be have's & have not's. Good luck

[-] 3 points by jph (2652) 2 years ago

You appear stuck in a feedback trap; your premise that change is impossible is not upheld by evidence to the contrary. There used to be only royalty and landless surfs,. times change, they are changing even now.

[-] -2 points by Dell (-168) 2 years ago

and there will always be haves & have not's. when has it ever been any different?

[-] 2 points by brochomsky (208) from Brooklyn, NY 2 years ago

I want freedom. The billionaires don't have that.

[-] -3 points by Dell (-168) 2 years ago

really? the bilionaires dont have freedom? ok. can you explain that. and if thats the case - you should have plenty of freedom not being a billionaire no?

[-] 0 points by brochomsky (208) from Brooklyn, NY 2 years ago

The problem is that billionaires restrict OUR freedom. Are you Christian? Do you know that part about the camel going through the eye of a needle being easier than a rich man going to heaven?

Boy, you got' to be the simplest son of a bitch I've ever had the displeasure to communicate with. If you really are a millionaire, then the whole premise that the brightest and most forward thinking make it to the top in a capitalistic society is a bunch of hogwash nonsense. You need to keep quiet; You're giving capitalism a bad name. As is, especially if you represent wealth in America, You are giving credence to my preconceived notion that only hard working dim wits chase the Benjamins; hard working smart people live life to its fullest and are happy with just being middle class. Too bad the millionaire dim wits are ruining it for everyone.

[-] -2 points by Dell (-168) 2 years ago

I am far from a millionaire. I am just not envious of those who are.

[-] 3 points by JesseHeffran (3903) 2 years ago

Oh, I see so you are a dim wit who believes he has the winning ticket and does not want the show to end before he cashes it. Your ego won't let you see that you are destined to be nickled and dimed until you are six feet under. You must be a child then, or at least someone who has not worked most his life. You need to drop the ego; it'll get you no where.

OR, do you believe that if you defend the riches prerogative to expropriate the nation's wealth that they may throw you a bone? Fat chance, fool. They are laughing at you, probably as much as the people on this forum are laughing at you.

You would like to be though wouldn't you?

It is far more likely to happen in a well regulated system of fair play then without it.

There will be far more well-off people in a well regulated system of fair play.

No one wants to steal from the wealthy!

We want " THEM " to stop stealing from us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We want them to stop bleeding the economy dry with the outrageous fossil Fuel prices. This is what is keeping the economy down, this is what is causing business's to fail. The monster in our yard that is stifling growth to reap pure profits while stagnating the economy and slowing down green energy growth. Fossil Fuel is a parasite in the Body of society just like a tapeworm.

Then there is WallStreet and Banking. Selling toxic instruments with no vested interest or assigned capital collateral to guarantee them. Fronting as a service agent for properties with no interest in the success or failure of a mortgage. Etc. etc etc

The for-profit insurance industry that sucks funds out of the system to pay unreal wages and bonuses to executives and so by driving up the cost of coverage as well as excluding individuals from coverage.

Greed has gone wild and unchecked for too long.

Those of us with good intentions for all are here to see this shit stopped.

The rest of you need to get a clue - Blind Marchers - supporters of the status-quo, selfish individuals who can not see or understand the concept of health and prosperity for ALL.

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

You've probably heard of them. they are called corporations.

They invent ways to steal from their consumers all the time.

It's more profitable than anything else they've ever tried.

[-] -2 points by Dell (-168) 2 years ago

oh - those organizations that employ millions of people, provide all kinds of products & services so we can live more fulfilling & comfortable & productive lives. Companies like Apple & Microsoft, Pfizer & Merck? Those evil organizations that provide life saving drugs, computers & cell phones etc. All an evil plot to do what?

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

Which of course has nothing to do with the question, nor does it address my answer.

Those employees are also consumers, and those same corporations happily rip them off too.

Not a problem. I have a good purpose in life and an excellent direction to take along with many other good people - Health and prosperity for all.

You seem to be lost though - lost in some dark and dismal place.

That would be the hole you are digging. Helpful hint - Look for the light.

We've already gone over how there is no such thing as a self made man.

They don't exist, so why do you insist on still using the term?

Is it you that's jealous of the illusion?

[-] -3 points by Dell (-168) 2 years ago

sorry - I just disagree with you (so do at least half the population) good luck.

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

You disagree with fact, and make a blanket claim about half the population.

It's you who needs jealousy to drive you to overachieve.

It's you who needs to gloss over all your negative emotions.

So much that you post an infomercial, as though it's fact.

It's not. It's just another infomercial.

all the name calling & offensive language really help you make your case. Answer the question? when have there not been haves & have nots? you are tripping about some fantasy hallucination unless you can answer the question.

//In fact, a Fidelity Investments' study of millionaires last year found that 42 percent of them don't feel wealthy and they would need $7.5 million of investable assets to start feeling rich.//

If I had $200,000 I could get my family out from under our student loans and mortgage. We would have a good quality life. When I read this quote from yoru stupid article...I feel sick inside. A million is plenty for any human being....all your article did was fuel the fire Honey....we aren't trying to get rich...we're trying to live WORKING FULL TIME only to hand it over to the richees...I don't want to be one of them...I just want happiness in life. I know freedom from debt would make my life a better quality life. I don't even own a cell phone...I can't imagine why you would want to pay $100+ a month just so people can bother you wheever you are...I was raised in the 80s...I remember and KNOW that we can get by without them.

The problem isn't that the poor aren't rich...it's that rich are poor...in class, character, concern and a give-a-damn...They say, "Ooooo look I made 200 million dollars last year!! Woot!!"

Honey....in my eyes...that's 500 families out of debt and reestablishment in this nation.

Recognize!!

[-] 1 points by FriendlyObserverB (1871) 2 years ago

actually , that would be 500 families "placed in debt" to support the 200 million. Great post though !

  4. Use other peoples money to open swiss bank accounts.

Damm, I would like to do that - how do I go about doing it? How do I go about financing my business with other peoples money - hell I don't have any collateral.

Does it take collateral or just lying so a person can get financing?

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

Ask the guys at Solyndra.

On 23 February 2012 Associated Press reported, "A Delaware bankruptcy judge on Wednesday approved close to $370,000 in bonuses for 20 employees of Solyndra LLC, a solar panel manufacturer that received a half-billion dollar loan from the federal government before declaring bankruptcy.

I wonder how much other compensation they received in the last few years?

[-] 2 points by HitGirl (2263) 2 years ago

Why didn't i think of that? Create multiple income streams and invest a lot of money. Oh, and get someone else to do your household chores! Easy-peasy. It's a wonder we're not all rich.

Hey factsrfun.

Reality? Yes in a way it is about reality. But I was making a rejoinder to :

if you don't like the road your on start paving a new one. ↥like ↧dislike reply permalink


The rejoinder being that we do not like what we see happening to our country nor do we like what is happening to our world.

So we of sane perspective are here to gather support to "re-pave" the road to a healthy and prosperous future for ALL.

Well I wish it were ( getting easier ). But the fact is it is going to likely get a lot more stressful as the insane corrupt put up a battle to remain in control. Once we start scoring on changing big issues like OSTA, Corporate Personhood, money out of politics - Then we should begin to see an easing of the way. The only easy thing right now is slapping down non-sense in confrontations.

[-] 0 points by FriendlyObserverB (1871) 2 years ago

The issues may be on a larger scale, but the non-sense will still be the same. Keep slapping.. use a knee later, as the urge arises !

[+] -6 points by DKAtoday (27542) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

I agree ( lol ) whatever comes to hand or seems appropriate, just always remember to slap with authority in that swing, non-sense still needs to be shown as obvious crap.

{:-/ {:-o {:-) {:-])

[-] 1 points by FriendlyObserverB (1871) 2 years ago

Well , perhaps we differ slightly on that.. When some one wrongs me , I have all the authority I need from that point forward ..

[+] -6 points by DKAtoday (27542) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Personal attacks "are" different, I agree, then take all the pleasure you can in knocking them down. But for those looking in it is always best to let it show clearly who was in the wrong and why.

But maybe that's just me.

There are a lot of ways to take something, your employer takes your life, every time you go to work, some do call that stealing, but most don't.

so what did YOU mean when you used the phrase? AND - an employer and an employee have a mutually agreed upon arrangement. Any other way to look at it is just twisted.

I love that all of you INSTANTLY dismiss this as folly, it demonstrates why you are failures at life.....

success leaves clues, and yet you pretend to know that which you actually know nothing about...you use your own failed experiences as the guide for what is possible, rather than looking outward at the accomplishments of others to see what is possible beyond your own small minds......

you should be ashamed, but...the failure you will experience in life until you learn the realities is punishment enough, I guess....
