Wasn't TM supposed to be the solution to that? Of course if you can't afford TM then what would be the point? :-D

You're saying that only an elite group should run the world?

And... have you ever been a manager? I have. Actually a lot of companies throw people to the wolves when they make managers. We do now have some good training around but back in the day you had to "fake it." Turned out being a leader of a music group helped as well as teaching things. If I had it to do over again I would but be more black and white about expectations.

This is the mistake that Hugo Chavez made. He turned over businesses to the workers but didn't train any of them to be a manager. You have to find the individual who will naturally be good at it and train them. I would also suggest a quick workshop for everyone in the business to find replacements and to keep check on the manager.

What we are moving towards is a society of oligarchs running things and everyone else is their servant. That's very oppressive and should not be tolerated in any way whatsoever.

Management skills are simple. They can be taught in a few short hours. The balls to apply them is the hard part. The uber rich are often all balls and no reason. They just plow ahead like Mac truck slamming through a store and leaving a mess in it's wake. A massive correction is needed for the big party the uber rich have had and left the hotel room trashed.

You can't give wisdom or management skills. They are learned.

The uber-wealthy share of taxes paid is down to 17% of their income. I never paid a tax rate that low. Ever. Considering that they control 25% of the wealth of the entire country, they ought to pay much more than 17%. That is obscene. And the reason I refer to it mental illness, is that they have cornered not only this staggering amount of wealth, but the entire country is now rigged to increase their wealth, at our expense.

We are not talking about a wealth of millions of dollars, a sum that would make the rest of us unimaginably rich. No, these are all multi-billionaires. A billion dollars is equal to a person living to a hundred years of age, and spending ten million dollars annually, nearly a million bucks a month, from infancy. That is just ONE billion. Incomprehensible.

Any time there is a bump in the economy, who benefits? The rest of us, who haven't seen wages rise in 55 years? Nope. Always the wealthy.

We keep hearing from the servants of the rich, the media and politicians, how we are a mighty and wealthy country, a world super power, and yet the game is now so strongly rigged *against* the efforts of the populace to get ahead, to have stable, prosperous lives, that no one is listening.

This could be easily fixed, by bumping the rate on taxable investments to say, 30 to 40%, what the middle class typically pays of its stagnant wages to the Feds in taxes. Close some loopholes too. I am not asking the one percent to contribute unfairly, only to the degree that the rest of us do. There should not be this unspoken rule, that once we achieve a certain level of wealth, we are then above the law. The truly galling thing about this, is the rich would never miss it, wouldn't even notice.

The wealthy pay less in taxes? C'mon now! The top 10% pay 70% of tax revenues. The remaining 90% pay 30%, while 47% pay next to nothing. 66% of spending is on Social programs i.e. SS, Medicare , Medicaid, Welfair, CHIP, etc. The remaining 34% is on the military and the cost of running the government and various discretionary spending.

Its deeper than that. All of those voting have watched their parents work hard without getting ahead, and profits skimmed by the wealthy who pay less taxes. In addition, the 1.2 trillion in student debt hampers many graduates the chance for a fresh start, and they are the group supposedly driving the economy. Its a rigged system, now more than ever, and the incremental change offered by all of the candidates except Sanders, amounts to treating the symptoms but not curing the underlying cancer of growing economic inequality.

Your quote by Benjamin Franklin is spot on, in light of all the crony capitalism going on, off shoring profits to avoid taxes, while pointing the finger at someone collecting food-stamps, or throwing people out of jobs that go overseas, and then complaining about them collecting unemployment for too many weeks. That kind of greed is a mental illness and must be stopped for the good of us all.

Yeah, Bernie definitely offers more *free* stuff than Hillary. Bernsie wants to offer *free* higher education to all. Hillary just wants you to pay lower interest rates on your student loans. If you were a student, who would you vote for? When the people discover that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.

You know, he makes some excellent points. It is true that Hillary is not a great campaigner and she gets defensive, which doesn't come across well all the time. Politically, neither her logo or her slogan say it's about the people. They say it's about her. It is true that Trump will do everything he can to lynch her and he won't let up. If she defends, she loses. He will continue to play on people's fear and she will be facing plenty of sexism, the kind that isn't talked about, but that surely exists in the minds of both men and women. The undermining has already started and has been quite effective. I will agree that the more interesting match that would force us to choose ideologically would be a Sanders/Trump choice. SuperTuesday is around the corner.
