Here is the problem with all of these too many wealthy people, the wealthy are getting richer,  arguments.

If money is invested, not being spent, it is not "income"..and thus not taxable.  However the companies that the money is invested in are taxed if they make a profit.

Money invested is helping provide jobs, even if it is invested in savings or bonds.. The money is lent out to others or to cities, etc, usually times 10, since a bank can actually lend more money than they have on deposit by borrowing from the Federal Reserve. .

It's true, you can't take it with you.  A lot of the investment money goes into foundations when the wealthy die, which is then used for the good of all.  Maybe it is good that people who know how to make money , build companies, start ups, etc. have a lot of money to play with. They are doing good things.

Most really rich people do not spend a lot of money on themselves. Some work in their companies for a dollar per year. A prime example of a low spender is Warren Buffett.. 

The really absurd salaries are paid to sport figures, coaches, etc.  Did you know that the highest paid civil servants in most states are coaches.. by far..in something like 48 states.  A $3 to $5 million per year is common for a coach.  A CEO that is making that much has thousands or hundreds of thousands of people working for them.  How many people does a basketball player employ, supervise, etc.   I don't knock the CEO's but I do knock the thousands of entertainment types pulling in millions or hundreds of millions.

If you want to makes things better, put a salary limit on entertainers, coaches, and ball players..  The CEO's are needed a hell of a lot more.   Look up the highest paid people in the US.. You need to know what they do and then you will forget all about the CEO's.

It is absurd to think the corporations of america are getting rich. Do people have any idea who owns those corporations?.. That's right, pension funds, college endowments, Joe on the street trying to save and put away money for his retirement.  Thank god we have a few left that are not losing money.  By the way Joe, get out of the market.  It will crash and you are going to lose your shirt.

Quoting DONTFITMOLD:

Jen sorry to hear that your family and Detroit's problems were the fault of Obama rather than the thief of pensions ..corruption etc....again greed preceeds Obama's influences.

 

But like so many "opinions" of many.. both here and in the media, most are biased to support their own opinions rather than the facts. Rave on about the President...the Congress... or the corporate greed but research the subject from different views before the Rantings  



OP;Uh Hello, lol, yeah...my "opinions" are based on factual history!!  Although some politicians are rewriting history or not telling it at all.  No need to go to CNN OR FOX. You cannot deny Obama's actions that we see. You can speculate on what we don't see with an unbiased attitude. Funny how you immediately jumped on me, claiming I referred to Obama about my Detroit woes. It took decades to ruin Detroit and more than one group did the damage.


Gotta go!! Too busy.

 "All in all... Greed takes it's place universally and yes it's our fault because we didnt see it till it was too late "

 

Oh no, you didn't!!  Hell no, it is NOT my fault, nor is it the fault of my parents so rule me out of your statement. We saw it coming in Detroit, White Flight happened, the lucky ones escaped. We were left, holding down the fort, yes, that is exactly what I did. If my family left to go out for the night, I was there to hold down the fort. Less chance of getting the house broken into that way.

 

 

Some people can leave a city, do we get to leave a country?  I saw a lot of it coming and it all affected me in a very negative way.   The greed of OTHERS has made me lose a better and safe neighborhood, lose my hard earned and saved money, my equity in my house I no longer have,etc.,etc.. The greed of others coupled with personal betrayals are hard to deal with, As a whole country, most of us will suffer the consequences, the Middle Class especially.

 

 The greed and control by people with an evil agenda creates sickness (cancer,etc.), the loss of our freedom, the loss of what was once a great country.  There can be small wins though, look at what states are doing the right thing vs. the wrong thing. Ohio just ruled out being able to vote for a third party. California just became the 3rd state to nullify part of the NDAA EO that states US citizens can be indefinitely detained without charges or a trial.  I would love for Texas to secede from the US, probably not going to happen but if they did, I would know where I'm moving!!
 

 

This blog is not hardly the place to get into the facts of what is happening, too much time & effort for it but I will give one example out of the hundreds that our socialist president has committed. He should be impeached!!

 

 URGENT! OBAMA Signs Anti Protest Bill FREE SPEECH & Protest will get you JAIL TIME!

PS I went much further in this post by adding ways we can help,etc. but it was all lost due to a tech issue, I quess bacause it timed out. Another frustrating  I have with MM. Let's see if they allow the one link.

As we both know Dak. the inequity in America is vast to be sure. Seems there are many factors involved beyond my understanding.

 

What bothers me is that the big oil companies get tax reliefs and they are recording record profits ...as with many mega companies ...Walmart...Home Depot. These companies pay minimum wages and RAKE in the profits. For their comfort???power???certainly not their employees

 

On the other end there are many "Public assisted" folks that are encouraged to have babies and make thousands a month for thier "assistence.  The government encourages them to have families sans a father to enable them to be on welfare. Seeems at looking at the phenomenon it appears to have a devious base

 

All in all... Greed takes it's place universally and yes it's our fault because we didnt see it till it was too late
