One of my favorite comments from months ago.....

The reason that I love and adore getting comments, is that I get to laugh at the angry leftists that think that what they say is either going to have an effect on me or they think that their psychotic rants actually make some kind of sense....

You'd make an excellent dictator - Kill all the people that want a piece of the dream and keep everything for yourself by exploiting others. The less they have, the more you have. By the way, you're already an American terrorist. Please send your passport back. You must love China where the exploitation is just getting started.

Ha ha. you are funny. If I earn it, I want to keep it. The founders of the Republic understood the problems of the tyranny of the majority. You and I will come to regret the socialization of the USA. In certain respects, China is freer than in the US.

What if people earned their money through the exploitation of others? Should our economic model be if I can get away with it, it's mine? Does big oil who made obscene record breaking profits and claimed to be a victim have any obligation to take some of those billions and give a raise to their 45k a year truck drivers or secretaries. How is the US socializing? How is China freer than the US? Wait let me ask the millions who are starving or the families of those that dissapear in the night. You're not a terrorist. That would connotate passion or dedication to a cause. You're just a pirate looking to enrich yourself off the backs of others (didn't I see you on a tanker off the coast of Somalia?)
I love this word exploitation, the noun, exploit, the verb, and exploits the other noun. since using the word against someone somehow is supposed to define them as a 'bad' person. But semantics is not something that interests me.

What I find most entertaining is this concept that such people or entities that make 'obscene' profits are somehow obligated to support others, specifically economically. Is someone like Warren Buffet or any other successful investor or businessperson is obligated to support people above and beyond the 10's if not 100's of thousands that they already employ? Is someone that buys shares in a company such as Coca-Cola exploiting people to gain profits? Yes. Should they be severely punished? If one does punish them for that activity, they will do a lot less of it. So if one punishes the exploiters, you will get a lot less of it. You will get a lot less investment, a lot less employment and alot less availability of goods and services. Welcome to the world of Obamanomics. Punish people that work and save to the benefit to those that live profligate and reckless lives. Its a pure recipe for complete disaster.

Should morality and money be connected in any way? If so, how? Does it feed your ego to have the wealthy decide who gets what? If the money is there (as in big oil)why not compensate the "lower level" employees? If you only used your U.S. education system smarts for good instead of evil the world might be a little better off. Go kick a homeless person, it'll make you feel good.
