Seriously flawed thinking.

After talking in this forum, either my thought process is flawed regarding this subject, or "their" thought process is seriously flawed.

 

Please tell me. What justice or right, does a individual have..suddenly deciding that his or her neighbor is making "too much money?"

 

What is "too much money?" What "right" does a person have, to the wealth of their neighbors? (who cares how they got their wealth. who cares if their family sold Whiskey during the days of Al Capone. that's not the focus here)

If we apply the logic outlined in your opening statement, a robber can rob banks, take "their" money, and the neighbors will have nothing to say about.

The money is the "fruit" of the robber's labor.

In your opening statement, you wrote that it mattered not how the money was acquired.

How about Bernie Madoff?

He is entitled to the "fruit of his labor," gotten by a Ponzi scheme?

You might want to rethink the parameters of your discussion.

You might be interested in a new book: Ghosts Of Gold Mountain.

It highlights the stories of the Chinese workers on the Transcontinental Railroad, in this country, and how the "fruits of their labor" we're essentially stolen from them.

This country owes them reparations.

Speaking of reparations, does it matter if a "family" earned its wealth off the labor of slaves?

You seem to be making a case for Communism.

Is that the best description that you could do?

I am focusing on the working Americans (CEOs or upper-middle class workers) pulling in around 6 to even 7 plus figures per year,

 

and you come up with two criminal examples?

I think they are just thieves trying to pass legislature to steal from working Americans. 🙂

 

This is why I can't vote for the non-conservative party.

You brought up criminals.

Al Capone was a criminal.

You stated it didn't matter how the money was obtained.

I followed your lead.

How about earnings from slavery?

It was legal.

You completely ignored that example.

Why?

You should reread your opening statement.

Taxes are necessary.

What the right-wing doesn't seem to understand, is that WE are the government.

And a society has security, safety, infrastructure, medical and social programs and goals that benefit all of us.

And that is why I will never vote for a right-wing candidate.

And this is why I will never vote for a left-wing candidate as well.

I am still waiting for you to answer my question about earnings made legally, off of the backs of slaves.

Many families in the south, used those earnings to build wealth and give their children "silver spoons."

According to your parameters, my question is a legitimate one.

What about those Chinese railroad workers?

Please tell me. Did an ALLNURSES.COM member posted that his or her neighbor was making "too much money?" Can a link to that post be posted in this topic.

I really want to understand this thread.

May I use the word, "dude?"

 

Dude. How does your rhetoric fit into the "recent immigrants" that became an American, who are deemed

"too successful?"

How about the bunch of Irish or Italians or even the Chinese immigrants who came to this nation after the Civil Rights act was passed?

And are deemed..

"too successful?"

 

We (our side) can see the truth. What your side wants, is to establish that subjective variable where a basic nobody gets to decide and say..

 

"you have too much money. you need to share, and you will share it."

 

Sounds like stealing.

Dude.

Who are you speaking about and for? Who has spoken about establishing a standard for determining excessive (financial) success besides yourself? If a specific question is asked and the respondent ignores the question and instead publishes generalized opinions and thoughts, is that an example of "blank talk"? Was that the term you used?
