Viva la 1%!

  • Can you find a current member of either chamber who is not of the top 1%? I won't hold my breath on that one. Though why you are pretending to be bothered by wealthy law makers is the real puzzle here.
  • It ranks number 2 in the nation for the subsidies it receives. Who will protect it better? Republican or democrat? Not much else matters.

    • Indeed, the willingness of Republicans to keep the subsidy train going is among the chief, valid attacks against the scum. But you do have to admit that the law school condescension angle is a fine variation on the theme of "Shut up, peasant!"

        Yes, well, your tea party friends want to keep their bennies also. So, if you're looking for change, you'll have to look elsewhere. Try to remind your buddy RG of that.

        And yes, the gaffe was a good one, but conflicts in no way with what I've been saying all along. On the contrary, it confirms it. But don't let that stop you from believing I vote for democrats. Your minds are set on that

        • I don't think I've ever said you vote Democrat. I do find you consistently caustic.
          • I don't think I've ever said you vote Democrat.

            No, that would be RG's lie, though you have implied it plenty of times with your either/or nonsense in the past. You have, however, directly said that I approve of the situation. And what you call "caustic", I call being direct. I'm just not interested in playing charades.

              Yes, I have. In particular, due to your persistent carpet bombing* of any effort to alter the situation.

              *Strictly metaphorical. This reply is not meant to explicitly accuse you of owning/operating/directing bomber(s) or any deployment of actual ordnance.

              • But I do have a carpet. It's not very airworthy and can't hold much ordinance. I suppose I could light it on fire to burn down the house, but then what?... Note that I an not the one taking everything you say literally, or even seriously, for that matter.

                And you're not really trying to alter anything. That too, I have already pointed out. You simply want to put a different face in from of the camera. But the people you have been recommending so far are exactly like the rest, all sucking up big money from al

                  Actually, I have offered plenty of analysis of where I think we went high and to the left, a century ago. Until we move the balance of power back to the House/States, and away from DC, we're stuck on this course. I don't accept your acceptance of this inevitability, any more than the founders accepted King George III.
                  I see your "pure randomization" program as less workable.

                  • I don't accept your acceptance of this inevitability...

                    Whoops! You did again. I wonder if you're even aware of it. I kinda doubt it.

                    I see your "pure randomization" program as less workable.

                    Being as that I look at things from various angles. This one, from yours, is very understandable. Such is the monkey trap of privilege. You will starve before you let go.

  • Considering that farmers make up just 2% of US population, the guy was barking up the wrong bonsai.

    And if you're talking about farmers by percentage of farming production, you're definitely talking about members of "the 1%".

    Hell, even the average farm family income is over $100,000/yr, maybe 50% higher than the average US family income. The image of the hardscrabble, salt-of-the-earth farmer is about 40 years past its expiration.
