Why do you have a problem with people receiving GOV assistants but not corporations?

[quote:Anonymous Coward 26480717:MV8yMDQzOTY3XzM0MzQ1MTE4XzI2NTZDNTY5] [quote:DOT 2 DOT:MV8yMDQzOTY3XzM0MzQ0OTkxXzIxRkNDMTE4] You make a good point in that.. the industrial revolution is long gone. As more and more jobs are replaced by process automation.. less workers are needed.. now what? Computers replace accountants, robotic assembly replaces line workers.. there is simply less need for laborers. And yet we fail to grasp the systemic nature of a changing economy and blame the individuals themselves. [/quote] The answer to "now what?" will decide the fate of humanity. [i]In movie announcer voice[/i] "This time ... it is for real" We must have out of the home 40+ hour a week jobs for people ... right? No problem, take that worker from the assembly line, and give him a gun, federal paycheck and a badge. Are american football players hitting harder than ever on the field? Give somebody a job making better pads. Are people committing financial fraud with High Frequency trading? no problem ... hire some disadvantaged inner city kid to work at the SEC. Do we have a 40% H.S. drop out rate, and a 30% illiteracy rate at graduation? No problem, hire a teacher and their spouse as a contractor to build a new school. The glue that keeps all of this together is that theoretically we have maximized tax revenue in this model. Economists would tell you that full spectrum taxation is the only way you can prevent hyper-inflation in a fiat fractional reserve economy. [/quote]
A lot of you people here on GLP seem to think people on welfare(the vets, the disabled, the old, people who make under 20k) are the problem. But there is no outrage or anger for the companies who make billions yet find ways to stick their hands in the pot. When you come one here and make threads about people who receive "handouts" when most of them actually need all the help they can get but fail to mention companies who exploit gov assistants you look like a bunch of selective problem solving hypocrite. How can you sit behind your screen and bash these people yet turn the other way at the real problem. Its like the cop who would rather chase down someone peeing in an ally instead of the guy mugging down the street.
We need to do better.
