Agreed on CEOs & Athletes. We pay them that kind of. $$ because of our societies values, or lack thereof...
What is happening in Detroit right now is 50 + years of proof that you cannot live on the backs of others
Thanks Maximus. Clay's a fool, like most progressives. They claim they know and understand fiscal matters. They don't. All they understand is that inequality exists and it MUST be stamped out. They perceive companies to be greedy, yet cannot fathom the ( our ) government is the greediest entity of all, always taking, always ravenous, Hungary, never really having to answer to anyone but itself.
I loathe sheeple fools who like to take from one and give to another in the name of government and call it good. I believe those men are the most evil of all. Why ? They are hypocrites and absolutely ignorant on the issue of the depravity of man. Fools like Clay believe all men are created by no one, here for nothing, going nowhere. They believe in forced redistribution by the government. They call it good. It isn't good. It is evil.
It's evil in that it simply breaks the 8th commandment.
I like the idea of Giving as God has blessed you. If any of the socialists in this thread really and truly think that the government can do a better Job of being charitable then I consider them fools.
Trickle out of my pocket ( and yours ) by force doesn't work either, and we all know why:
From J. Budziszewski
"Many Christians seem to miss the point, thinking that expropriation is wrong just because the wrong groups are in power, choosing the wrong causes for subsidy. This is where the horror stories are offered, and horrible they are: of subsidies to promote abortion, subsidies to photograph crucifixes in jars of urine, subsidies for all sorts of wickedness and blasphemy. But expropriation would be wrong even if each of its causes were good. Consider the following progression.
On a dark street, a man draws a knife and demands my money for drugs.
Instead of demanding my money for drugs, he demands it for the Church.
Instead of being alone, he is with a bishop of the Church who acts as bagman.
Instead of drawing a knife, he produces a policeman who says I must do as he says.
Instead of meeting me on the street, he mails me his demand as an official agent of the government.
If the first is theft, it is difficult to see why the other four are not also theft. Expropriation is wrong not because its causes are wrong, but because it is a violation of the Eighth Commandment: Thou shalt not steal.
Good Article from American Thinker, Joe P.
Clay never was a thinker, just a scribbler of pie in the sky progressive propaganda.
Indeed, the guvment guys at the Big table are feasting at our expense.
Suckers indeed ! Stupid Sheepal
The nix of the thing works both ways. No big loss.
We will be back to nixing photo IDs again shortly, so all the dead, illegal aliens can insure the progressive way...
ha ha "toon boy" !
