If the top 1 percent gave all their money to the poor, they would all just be poor again in a thousand years.
Patrick saysThe third world is in my experience much scammier than here in the US. Everyone constantly seems to be trying to cheat everyone else.consequence of being dirt poor

The idea that we should expect life to stay the same here in the U.S. while the global population growth is such that it doubles every few decades, is beyond silliness.
Reality saysBoth workers and owners of capital are results of mutually willing market exchangesBut capital rigs the markets with Open Borders and Zoning/Density Laws.

I agree but the biggest theft against the middle class worker. Is we can't earn interest from our money in the bank. And our Corporate laws are set up to oppress Mom and Pop operations that have no greater aspirations out of their business than to keep just one location afloat, pay their employees, have it finance their lifestyle and not lose money. That used to be the goal of 90% of the businesses in America. Now if your business isn't growing every year, and you're not big enough to add a new location in a couple years. Then it is considered a failure and the banks, competition, and the government will do what ever it takes to get you the fuck out of the way so Buffet and Bezos can make millions your keeping them from.
And complex entities that cost big money to set up and maintain, but pay off big over the years in tax avoidance. Something Dr. Goldberg the Surgeon can't do with $1.5M, but Ramesh Gupta the Indian Steel Magnate with $500M could do.
Redistributing money to poor people does nothing. They simply remain poor because they lack the education, discipline and motivation to do better. It would be far more useful to realign welfare to fix those problems instead of primarily focusing on EBT and section 8 type programs.
Further, Dalio points to a survey by the Federal Reserve showing that 40 percent of adults can’t come up with $400 in the case of an emergency. “It gives you an idea of what the polarity is,” Dalio said. “That’s a real world. That’s an issue.”Wonder how the clusterfuck will work out this time? Are the rich getting scared?Flaunting one's wealth is not a great idea when the majority feels the rich have taken advantage of the poor.No right or wrong just: "We will be taking what you have,over your dead body if necessary,or you can SURRENDER IT NOW!"
What Marcus and some of the same political ilk have not brought up is that all the top 10% needs to be examined, not just the top 5% and top 1%. When the Left examines how many make $200,000 to $400,000 there are opportunities to raise taxes there to realize a large increase in tax revenue.
You guys really don’t get it. Someone ALWAYS wants the power. If it’s not the rich it will be the politicians. If not the politicians, then the military.I’m not proposing a solution because there isn’t one.
Nah, it'll be that Ocasio-Cortez cunt.
To witness hunger in America today is to enter a twilight zone where refrigerators are so frequently bare of all but mustard and ketchup that it provokes no remark, inspires no embarrassment. Here dinners are cooked using macaroni-and-cheese mixes and other processed ingredients from food pantries, and fresh fruits and vegetables are eaten only in the first days after the SNAP payment arrives. Here you’ll meet hungry farmhands and retired schoolteachers, hungry families who are in the U.S. without papers and hungry families whose histories stretch back to the Mayflower. Here pocketing food from work and skipping meals to make food stretch are so common that such practices barely register as a way of coping with hunger and are simply a way of life.
A pound of ground beef costs $3 (pork and chicken would cost only $2 per pound); a pound of flour costs 50 cents; a pound of flash-frozen veggie or berries would cost only $2-3 (apples, oranges and melons would cost far less, about $1/pound). So a total of $5/day can can deliver 3 meals of feast (of balanced diet) that only Kings and Queens could dream of not long ago, and even today only the dictators and their families and friends can dream of in socialist paradises such as Venezuela, North Korea and Cuba.Where ?

Let me guess - Norway is so flush with Oil Money they can afford to completely subsidize EV's.
SunnyvaleCA saysGive them an IQ test in EnglishThat would eliminate a lot of native born Americans as well. What is our official religion going to be ? Are there going to be official new sources, required reading etc ?

Reality saysEnglish literacy is an existing requirement for naturalization, and has been the case for over a century . . . as is the pledge of allegiance to the US Constitution (if you consider that a religion).Oath Of Allegiance Changed: Pledge To Military Service No Longer Required For Naturalized Citizens - this was in 2015Naturalized citizens will no longer have to pledge to defend the United States through military service when reciting the Oath of Allegiance if they have certain religious or conscientious objections, according to a new policy set out by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.https://www.ibtimes.com/oath-allegiance-changed-pledge-military-service-no-longer-required-naturalized-2021564

Reality saysAlso, being in jail or on welfare should automatically disqualify a person from voting during that time.What the fuck has someone being on welfare got to do with someone's ability or eligibility to vote? That's a good chunk of team Trump supporters in the fly over states and old rust belt cities - got to get them clean enough off the meth and crack to get to the polls first though.Wrap that flag tighter around yourself and get a few more signed Trump bibles to sell on E-Bay - claim to be a patriot.

which frustrated the unification of Germany—one goal the revolutionaries were trying to achieve.
During the American Civil War, Marx wrote about his support of the Union Army, the Republican Party, and Lincoln himself. In fact, he named the president as "the single-minded son of the working class."
that was when I said inventory is a form of waste in the world of Continuous Improvement otherwise known as Kaizen.
A lot of places don't pay teachers nearly well enough. You get what you pay for. But yeah, the number of those stories of female teachers going after adolescent boys is surprising.
Not talking "dogmatically" here or "just in time", nor do I require assistance to tell me what I am thinking.Inventory is a manufacturing waste because it is value that is being held at a cost. In the most literal sense, Inventory is valuable product or material that is waiting either to be sold to the customer or further transformed into something of greater value. The entire time a product sits in Inventory, its profit margin is reduced because overhead must be paid to maintain the product in Inventory. Maintaining Inventory requires the addition of Motion and Transportation wastes.
Here is another link concerning Lincoln and Marx from an economist's perspective - not that anyone will read it.https://economistsview.typepad.com/economistsview/2014/02/lincoln-and-marx.html
guessing you are not a fan of Six Sigma
Reality saysWhat's missing is that inventory of critical parts and some semi-finished and finished products can be a hedge against supply / distribution disruption and unexpected / hard-to-anticipate instant demandKindly show me exactly where I stated that - please. Not having a good grasp of C.I. leads to faulty conclusions.

That's another piece of bought-and-paid-for communist propaganda.This allegation is based on what?

@Reality - didn't need to wait for the Tsunami in Japan to see the weak link in Just In Time - auto production has been disrupted numerous times by a strike at a supplier, nature, work "slowdowns" at any point in the supply chain.Does not mean JIT is bad, just need to appreciate the problem areas. As for the critical spares etc. that is a key component of C.I. - knowing what to keep and what not to keep on hand, what can be express shipped in if need be etc - doing a cost benefit analysis.
