You all mock AOC, but if she continues repeating "people who work should not be poor" and stays away from "abolish ICE, let everybody in" she will be veeeeeeery popular. America has too many working poor for her not to be popular.

Most poor people in western cultures are poor because they make poor decisions. You could throw all the money you want at them and they would waste it. It’s an insult to assume those that know how to crate and accumulate wealth have any obligation to help those that simply never help themselves.

AOC is a dolt, and most of America knows it.

I am certain that the powers that be are already busy setting her up for a fall.

If she poses too much of a threat to the power structure, she very well may find
herself in a much worse circumstance.

Re: 26 Billionaires Own The Same Wealth As The Poorest 3.8 Billion People
CNN Business) The world's billionaires are growing $2.5 billion richer every day, while the poorest half of the global population is seeing its net worth dwindle.

Billionaires, who now number a record 2,208, have more wealth than ever before, according to an Oxfam International report published Monday. Since the global financial crisis a decade ago, the number of billionaires has nearly doubled.

The annual study was released ahead of the yearly World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, which brings together some of the wealthiest and most influential people on Earth. The 106-page report is meant to call attention to the growing gap between rich and poor.

[link to www.google.com (secure)]
 Quoting: Ohio chic


Let's just pretend that these billionaires decided to spread the wealth

What do you think most people who are poor would do with the money?


Sure some would pay some Bill's to get caught up, only because they have to

But once that's caught up they wouldn't care about the future and being behind on rent, food, etc... nope

They would go and start buying TVs, cars they dont need, games, clothes they dont need, shoes they dont need, things they do not need but want

When I say things they dont need, i mean extra shoes like Jordan's, etc...

The people who hasn't had much in life would go crazy with all that money

This is why lottery winners, most go broke in so many years

So, no they should not share

First of all that is not how a country should operate

This would discourage people from trying to make lots of money

2nd the poor most would waste it anyways

Who would open a business And work their asses off,to just have to end up giving it all away to lazy or people who dont try as hard?

You see how much sense then giving their money away would not make?

People need to be reminded. Children are given from above, this is a school that streams souls in.

AND, our nations are having less than replacement level for kids with a huge focus on MONEY. But even more than this, home ownership is priced out of average incomes, which is ridiculous and your grandparents generation would have had a revolution under current system. The majority need to own homes like your grandparents generation did.

1 bedroom overpriced apartments. Roughly 800-1200 a month depending on area, are not suitable to raise 2-3 kids in. And the current average income in BC is 27000 a year. And anyone incapable of doing the math on all living necessities and the savings, and can't realize they don't even have savings is retarded!

So the people who suggest the poor should stop having babies, guess they're the elite. Or they've drank the elite's koolaid.

The world needs to be set up for EQUALITY AND FREEDOM.

We don't need money. A moneyless abundance with clean high tech energies for everyone is needed.

Within a framework of Borders and Protection from all extremists who don't wake up and take their own nations back.

And I would be perfectly happy with 1% of the population or even 0.5% arrested and thoroughly investigated from behind bars, all of the elite. The number of innocent convictions would be very small indeed.

You're not thinking like the poor my friend. This woman is using their emotions and way of life to get their votes just like Bernie Sanders does, and just like Trump did. She's targeting the poor and youth to gain power. She's very smart. If you think she's not, Bernie Sanders is proving you wrong. The poor do not care about their taxes going up, or cost of living going up if they are receiving free shit like healthcare, college, subsidies, and etc. They only are thinking of the now. The youth are naive and hear the word free without throughly understanding what that represents. As for open borders, this woman is feeding off to gain power from the bleeding hearts of the country and the minority to gain their votes. Again, just think of Bernie Sanders. If Hillary didn't burn him in the elections, he might be sitting in the oval office, not trump.

Well, there's a thought?
You must be very young.......I'm just going to leave you to your bubble while your sjw gets ground off, the more you try to create this imaginary world where any of that is even real.....just be careful. One takes a lot of damage "dying" for idealism that does not exist in the vast majority of humans.

If you ever did get your way, the "me's" would all look at each other in disbelief, start the "ok dummy?" hopper and make the dummies "soylent pale" that we could poison and sell to others on the superstition that eating whitey will turn you white. It would work too.

Its not the "good ones" we have safegaurds, laws and policies to try and keep a lid on or the good ones that are the cause of our worst problems, hence, there is very little the "good ones" can do except keep thier selves and think maybe whoever is left in 10 or 20 years might be able to live like that....until they breed piles of fail for everybody to support as well.

I disagree with your last part - those billionaires will still have the brains that got them success thr first time and eventually they'll succeed again.
 Quoting: Bright Side


I agree they will succeed again, but it will take more than 6 months; however, the "poor" who received the billion$ will only need 6 months before finding themselves poor again.
 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith


Define "the poor."
 Quoting: PharmaceuticalsShrinkCocks


You are correct -- "poor" -- is relative.

By global standards, there are no poor in the US.

What do I mean by "poor"? I am referring to the turd worlders with sub 90 IQs who do nothing but reproduce like vermin. People who have zero desire to do anything to improve their situation, but think they are owed something.
 Quoting: Lady Jane Smith


so you are talking about the poor in the ununited states then.. doubtful those who walk miles for water every day think like the masses (poor or not) here. or point fingers of hatred nonstop at someone not like them. Probably wonder what it is like to even have running water that they might have heard about. are tv's and radios usually given to those countries commoners as they are raped of their dignity and country's resoureces by the billionaires and those who work for their peanuts..

keep those hearts filled with hatred!!

Re: 26 Billionaires Own The Same Wealth As The Poorest 3.8 Billion People
but its ok to pay an actor who reads lines millions while a construction worker who actually contributes by building a product like a house that people need only makes a modest wage, yeah thats fair
 Quoting: crestedone


So what are YOU doing about that?

Do YOU watch any movies?
WHY?

EVERY time YOU watch a movie YOU are effectively PAYING that actor MORE money (yep ... the stars get residuals from every eyeball that watches that movie, even over "FREE" TV)

Do YOU listen to any music other than in small clubs?
WHY?

EVERY time YOU listen to music, yep even on "FREE" radio, the writer of the song and now the performer GETS MORE MONEY!! (yep ... even if you listen via "FREE" radio).

Have YOU ever paid to go to a big concert?
WHY?
Go to a concert ... guess who is being paid BIG BUCKS to perform there? ... and YOUR money is part of the money they are getting. Go listen to Joe Steelworker sing Karaoke after a few beers down at the Legion Hall instead!!


Do YOU buy any products where some Movie or TV person "PITCHED" that product via TV, Radio, Billboard, or in a Magazine?
WHY?
Every time somebody buys a product "Pitched" by a celebrity the company selling the product says to themselves: "What we paid them was worth it!"

I don't know you but I bet!! ....
YOU go to movies or watch them on TV
YOU listen to music via a music service or via the Radio
YOU have at some time gone to a big name concert
YOU buy products "Pitched" by some celebrity

In other words YOU are part of the reason why those people are making MORE money than Joe Construction Worker!!


(I too personally think actors/top musicians etc. are paid unbelievable amounts of money for what they do ... BUT ... people have ALWAYS paid big bucks for GOOD entertainment, how do you think Shakespeare got rich, VERY rich?)

you are right and I have issues with Billionaires too myself... in fact I believe people only need millions to be happy and secure..

but she is saying this from the script and following the commie line... a line that saw people like Castro in Cuba for example become a Billionaire himself.

the best way to help the poor and America at the same time is get people contributing and making the country better.

the time is coming to deal with the super rich because it cannot continue much longer.

Why are those poor people making so many babies, babies they can't feed... why is no one talking about issues like that, like these poor people are always so innocent when many of them are not.

"Oh I'm going to have all these babies, I live in this mudhut and can't even feed myself but damned if I'm not going to have a baby"

Then these shits come to my country and mess it up.
"But you can't hate on them, they're like poor and shit, so what if they come rape, steal and murder, they're poor people you're supposed to give them apartments and free living because f*** you!"

Maybe they should stop doing that and wait until they can afford having children?
Why are they not accountable for their own actions?

So the 26 billionaires that are in Davos need to figure out how to guilt you into letting them steal more of YOUR money to make them feel good about themselves. How about getting bent.

And a billion people live on 1 dollar a day and a bowl of rice.

They also live in very remote areas with no industry or structure. It's not my responsibility to make their lives better. They need to stop marrying at 12 and having a litter of ugly dumb children that will do the same and feel outraged when you suggest they stop doing things that are traditional to them.

Instead of stopping successful people from doing what is traditional to them as if it could save the dumb ones.

That's because poor people are stupid and won't learn from the rich people.
 Quoting: BRIEF


Why is it that as a society we allow CEO's to earn millions while their workers make $10 an hour.

I remember in the eighties the japanese tried to switch to our economic distribution, and the society was scandalized and did not allow this sort of disparity in income. (not sure if that's the case now, probably not, we all devolve)

While I am by no means a socialist, it is not right that the wealth is in so few hands, but we allowed it, and now it is likely to late to change it as everything is going to robotics and most of us will truly be useless eaters in the eyes of the rich.

Did not think that THIS would be the fulfilling of revelation where you work only for a day's food, but so it is, and becoming increasingly so. Rather thought there would be a cataclysm to accomplish it.

Beware all you who currently make a good wage. Right now they are programming lawyers, teachers, accountants, and any number of professional occupations into robots and AI. You will also become obsolete in time. Robots are now doing surgery.
 Quoting: godblessya!
I don’t understand the current obsession with Robots in the workplace.Don’t get me wrong there are good uses for Robots in Car/Airplane/Agricultural/ industry, medicine, tricky operations.

We now have situation though, where Big Business are using Robots only for maximizing profits. Especially in the unskilled labor sector. They are literally forcing unskilled workers, for example a hypothetical Burger flipper in to a long-term unemployment useless eater, State dependent situation.Big Business might save say £4 an hour in overhead costs using a Robot to flip burgers.
However, the government picks up the long cost of having to provide unemployment benefits, housing benefit etc. Likely running in to tens of thousands of pounds for an unskilled worker.

There are millions of people here in the UK that fall in to the unskilled labour category. Mostly In the retail industry, losing their Jobs to self-serving Tills, Robots etc.

Over the next few years Robots are ear marked to be taking millions of Jobs from the unskilled worker sector. Many of these people will be poorly educated, and have no chance of getting a Job in the skilled sector.

Big business will see negligible rise in profits from each one of these people forced in to unemployment. However, the government will pick up a bill that could run in to billions as more, and more, are forced in to long term unemployment. Big business does not give a shit about the socio-economic impact of their actions. In my opinion this is a financial ticking time bomb.

I dunno about the economics of it, but the companies will do what garners the most profit with the least hassle both work wise and regulation wise.

China is already way ahead of us in robotizing their factories, and do not think that this will affect only unskilled workers.

As I said, robots are doing surgery and doing it better than people. They are diagnosing, and doing it better than people.

They are doing accounting and not making any "human" errors. They are teaching, they are learning law, they will soon be driving and at some point I think it will become illegal for us to drive our own car.

We will gravitate to the limit of technology as we are in the time of increased knowledge but little understanding and just as in today's schools they don't want people to excel, the world of tomorrow will be much more uniform as even the most motivated, intelligent person for the job will be beat out by a robot.

Not sure how long that will take, but it's coming and incrementally, people will be replaced in all fields.

I am quite certain that there will be a mass culling one way or the other at some point, as like you say, the govermnent's will have to foot the bill for all who cannot support themselves.

We will be back to feudal times in a way, but since we are no longer agrarian, there will be no need for serfs, only a few to service the machines, and all this malarkey about a universal wage is just bullshit out to appease the people and prevent worry. They'll slaughter us wholesale.
God Bless You!

Re: 26 Billionaires Own The Same Wealth As The Poorest 3.8 Billion People
We need wealth redistribution
 Quoting: Reilly_


At the end of WW2 Japan had NO INDUSTRY left.

It's cities were in total ruins due to the fire bombing campaign against virtually all the urban areas in Japan.

Today, and for the last 40 years, Japan has had one of the highest living standards of ANY people on the planet.

Why?
They had an Educated Population.
They had a Hard Working Population.
They allowed their businesses, and the businessmen who started and owned them, to MAKE PROFITS, and REINVEST THOSE PROFITS into their businesses.

Over time those profits started to naturally fall out to the workers as higher wages, more benefits, and better working conditions.

IF Japan had taken it's entire WEALTH in 1945 and distributed it out to the population, but NOT allow it's business people to make profits, it would never have developed it's dynamic economy. Japan would be like Venezuela is becoming.

NO PROFITS?, or if you do have a small amount it is "Redistributed" to those who aren't making "Profits", why would anyone wish to invest their money in anything risky?

"Profit" is a dirty word to Socialists ... but it is what provides the Capital to expand a company, to invent new products, to compete in new lines of business.

NO PROFITS ALLOWED ... why would anybody risk their money doing anything?

Why does anyone care what someone else has? You've got more envy than 2.2 billion people who mind their own business.
