Go On ! Admit it !! You ain't "1%" ; You just 'wannabe' !!!

The reason that The 'One Percent' OF The 1% (the real source of The Evil Psychopathy) ... "are a very heavy burden on society." is that they are PARASITES !!

Ad Iudicium !

income? i'm at 500k/yr, so that's 1% i guess. assets? nah, not 1% yet. only in my 30s, need some time to get that high.

i've got about 180k in my checking accounts that im having a hard time giving away lol

Now I remember you ... that supercilious, smug tone and that distinctive whiff of Prime 'BS' !!!

There is really No Shortage of Needy Recipients for your largesse in The United $tate$ of Amnesia (Gore Vidal), so it'll be no problem donating your funds !!

Good luck with that !

verum ex absurdo ...

"The one percent are a very heavy burden on society. "

Very astute FriendlyObserverB (506) .


Not all are corrupt or rotten.

But.

I think it safe to say that quite a damned lot of them are like arterial plac the clogging fat that is driving this country and the world into having a massive coronary.

If you hate the 1%'rs so much,,, why do I see union workers protest at the construction site of corporations that dont hire union workers? If you hate 1% THAT MUCH, then why would you want THAT job?

So what are they costing you? Who are you sending your payments to?

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

$14+ trillion in debt

[-] 2 points by Stopinstigating (7) from San Antonio, TX 2 years ago

I'm sorry, I didn't think my questions were that difficult!

Let's try again:

What are they (the 1%ers) costing YOU? Who are YOU sending your payments to?

Some of us need more than nebulous accusations against people we've never met and know nothing about.

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

I didn't think the answer was that difficult! Let's try again:

the 1%er's cost us $14+ trillion

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 2 years ago

no that what the government costed you, what do the 1% cost i already know the answer i just wanna see what you put down

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

Daniel, I thought I told you to stay off my threads.

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 2 years ago

o well i talk about you in class today. Cost-based pricing or capped if government mandated. We talk about how it would be a good system for a market that does not change supply or demand. It would be good for a market that does not change at all. My professor did say this that it is a very hard way to live because the market are constantly changing. He also said that this could only be done for certain products and not across the board. Food items would be fine and that is about it. The rest of the products have a small life where price changes are constant due to technology and demand

also this inst your website and im not trolling im providing ideas to think about. I sense anger in you because you idea was flawed and a group of peers denied it. if you make a website sure ban me but until then im going to use this website to spread ideas of a free economy, capitalism and less government influence in our markets and lives. So accept it

I have developed an advanced economic system that will remove and abolish tax collecting, provide opportunity and jobs for everyone, and completely unleash the full potential of mankind. The professor and students in your business class are merely trying to learn the rules ..like sheep. They are no peers of mine.

[-] 1 points by DanielBarton (1345) 2 years ago

no its a management class where we learn how to make people follow orders in it. Again i think that some of the class had better ideas. your idea isn't original others have gone there and it was never acted upon for major reasons

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

Like I said, advanced economics is beyond your understanding. Now go away.

[-] 0 points by DanielBarton (1345) 2 years ago

no it is not guess what buddy your looking a future CEO of a company. You are just mad and a sad person because you didn't spend your time like the rest of us reading and practicing our business edict. Im sorry you missed out but im not paying for people who are ignorant to how things actually work. SO i will never leave until i know people like you understand the principles of design and how the market works on a global scale. a high school student could make a better design than that come on people recognize what you brought up but again like i said before there is a reason we don't have that system. That reason is that it doesn't work. you were not the first person to bring up that idea nor will you be the last but it will never be implicated on the Untied States. Try Somalia they have no government right now so its a great place to start

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

The greedy business design you are studying is part of the problem , not the solution. You are in fact the enemy to equality and fairness. Now go away wannabe backrider.

Attaboy! Don't let him come on here and trick you into using logic and reason!

the 1%er's designed and orchestrated the theft ... the govt is not that smart... they just sat idle and watched it happen ... and then after the fact they decided ... no problem ... we'll just pass it on the the unemployed American People to pay it back...

[-] 2 points by DanielBarton (1345) 2 years ago

really they wanted to lose millions become and embarrassment of business just to make more people poor!?! also the government gave them the check.

The problem was started from three parties the lenders, the people taking the loans, and finally the government for setting the low interest rates and guarantee to pay back the loans. All parties are guilty and all parties should of let the banks fail let the people lose there houses. the ship wasn't sinking till the dumb asses pulled it down.

congress is in on the scam too otherwise it would never would have happened

[-] 1 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

Yeah! They just up and took it from us! The government had 14 trillion dollars when they went to bed, and all of a sudden the next morning when they woke up, they were pennyless! Darn you 1%ers!!!!! You mad me spend the people's money on welfare checks!!

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

someone sponsored that 14 trillion dollars, there was a banking transaction discovered Lord Blackheath who brought it up at the british parliament for 15 trillion dollars by one man. But instead of an investigation, it got dismissed cause no one beleived it could be that much. Lord Blackheath investigated it for two years and is asking for an investigation, that leads right to the us treasury.

After a heady day of actions...Oh, to converse with a .01%er... (The dream starts) ~ Cadillacs? Wifey's got a couple of 'em. The price of a gallon if premium unleaded gasoline? I gotta guy for that. How would I know what that costs? Why would I even care? My company? I actually own several, so which one ya talkin' about there, Sparky?

I'm told by another one of my people that one of my companies actually is involved in this shale gas business. My guy tells me that all that guff about the possible contamination of ground water is nothing to get upset about. Says his guys hired a company that does that sort of research. They say it's all good; say not to worry about a thing. It'll be taken care of. The governor's a good friend, ya know?

Oh, and apparently, I have a company that takes money from profits and puts it in Swiss Banks and some banks in the Cayman Islands, where ever the hell that is. My guy.. uh, Fred Jones - I call him Jonesy - he says we're saving tons in taxes. Good thing, too. Those freakin' yachts cost a bundle to maintain. And don't get me started about the jet and that helicopter. They're leased through the one company, ya know Sparky? So, they're a write -off. I mean don't get me wrong, they're really neat-o keen and stuff but...anyhoo can I get ya another Budweiser, Spark ol' pal?

Listen to this! Jonesy tells me there's a gal that works over at Bear-Boobs Investments and she's supposed to have this algorithm worked out for...well, let's just say we could do VERY WELL, Sparky. Jonesy says the suckers'll never see it comin'. How's your Bud there, Sparkmeister??

Listen. Great chatting with you, Sparks. Gotta go and get to the furriers. Mommie caught wind of my weekend with that DSK dude and, you know, I'm kinda in the doghouse. I mean, she's not gonna kick me to the curb or anything. Hell, she ain't crazy Spark-Spark! Got a pre-nup in my pocket, dude! Bye now!

I love the 1%ers. They hsve money to buy my stuff. Its people of limited wit who have no money that should be removed. Poor peope just suck.

[-] -1 points by JuanFenito (847) 2 years ago

What is the cost? Are you advocating getting rid of the 1% or just not paying them anymore? The latter sounds easier.
