You think things are bad here it is all over, check south of the boarder countries and I am sure other places.  Just one example, I started to go to Costa Rica in 1993.  I could buy a box of breakfast cereal for about 1/4 of the price for the same product here in the states.  They made it here in the US, shipped it down to CR tells you how much the masses are preyed upon.  But the time 2003 came around Walmart bought up almost all super markets south of the boarder, now prices are matching or exceeding prices in the US.

 

But the wealth power thing goes way higher and narrows significantly to a few that have tremendous power! 


Honesty & Integrity Above All!

Regardless of what the US does to reduce the corporate taxes, it is foolish to think that any of that money will wind up in the workers paychecks.  Walmart announced a $11. minimum wage, when all states were required to do so, thay want the public to think they are doing something special.  Then they announced a $1,000. bonus but forgot to say (on purpose) that only those who've been with the company for 20 or more years will get the bonus.  Then laid off 600 co-managers (mostly those with 20 years or more) to achieve those positions.  The corporations are stuffing their shareholders pockets with these monies and trying to make it look like they are doing something good for their workers.  Biggest joke ever.  A good example of the right thing to do is the San Diego courts upholding the ruling that fines accessed for causing massive wildfires caused by negligent operation by the San Diego Electric company must be taken from the shareholders pockets and not passed on to the rate payers.

Well thats class class warfare for ya. And the sad part is the poorer the 99% become the less money the rich CEOs will be able to make off of us. Eventually leading to a financial collapse.

 

In fact the US is quickly becoming a third world nation: http://thesovereigninvestor.com/us-economy/third-world-america/ and the TPP would only accelerate this but fortunately the TPP was killed for the most part but Trump may pass the worst parts of the TPP through NAFTA: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2017/11/despite-victory-ip-tpps-resurgence-hasnt-cured-its-ills

Since its MLK day I found something you all might find interesting about him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSZqUGSliqU

 

And lindafran I'm not saying corporations are necessarily completely evil but when have a system that allows the richest 1% to take all the resources and leaves the mass majority of the population screwed over, thats broken system that needs to be fixed after all absolute power corrupts absolutely. Look no further than people like Stalin or Mussolini. And speaking communism why is OK for corporations to take welfare but not your average Joe?

@ lindafran

 

I can tell by the you speak you sound like your a libertarian where I'm center left I agree with some of the things you said, like that capitalism has allowed people to gain wealth much greater then people from 100 years ago. But its undeniable that there is some major wealth income inequality look at healthcare for example there are people whom been denied healthcare before the Affordable Healthcare Act bill was passed and one should not be denied healthcare like myself for example if I wasn't on Medicare I would've been denied healthcare because I have crohn's in this was before the Affordable Healthcare Act, and speaking of which everyone should have access to Medicare AKA single-payer-healthcare like every other developed nation. But getting back to capitalism my brother thinks capitalism is evil and the same for all rich people, which is a fallacy not all rich people are jerks just as capitalism isn't necessarily evil. Though crony capitalism is another thing altogether thats what we currently have in our modern society in other words an oligarchy. Though no matter how much I or anyone would explain this to you I doubt that you would change your mind in the slightest. :rolleyes:

So long as Capitalism feeds, so will Corporate Greed. I'm a firm believer that the 1% should be taxed immensely to help fund the well being of the less fortunate. No one needs in excess of 200k+ per year to live happily, it's greed that makes that a reality though. 

 

I also don't mean just taxing them to give handouts, but the money could be used to far greater things; than sitting in the equity of the super wealthy.

Agreed (with everything) wealth inequality is a major problem and needs to be addressed. Although I don't necessarily think that Capitalism is either good or bad same goes for Democratic Socialism it mainly depends who's in power. We currently live in a plutocracy.
