On your first sentence, ....the people like Jeff Bezos and Gates, et al. They are billionaires. What would have been a better plan for them under your government? Jesus. Are you fellers for real? They oppressed somebody???? Jesus. You fellers are emotional wrecks. Angry, too. Maybe jealous of the successful people?? (Who create may many jobs for the 'oppressed ...[text shortened]... ul. Dnt forget this link!!!
"(Who create may many jobs for the 'oppressed workers'😉. "
A job where you have to pee in a bottle just to meet quotas for a crappy wage is no job at all.
" For purposes of debates, we must stipulate...there is no criminal tax dodging, murder or kidnapping. "
Wtf are you talking about. They dodge taxes all the time? Is your point that if it's legal it's ok? Who made those loopholes in the country where you can buy politicians for a fraction of what return investment they could give you?
"I do agree decent wages and good working conditions. "
Then you should be fine with government regulating and enforcing those conditions. Because sure as hell billionaires won't dole out good wages out of the goodness of their hearts.
" Funny you actually say that I can keep more money than you do, which is against Marx , which you are"
Just because you cannot comprehend the fact that socialism is a spectrum and is perfectly fine with incorporating capitalism (which is also a spectrum) doesn't mean that the world is comprised of marxists and randians (and nothing in between). Your ignorance on the subject is funny. Or maybe you know full well this is true but you can't debate against it so you reduce it to the simplest of terms.
"What is obscene, and how is it cheating the system and how is it at the 'expense of others'.? Walmart has rich owners, and employs near 100,000 people."
And many of them are on government welfare, welfare which you, the citizens pay for.
"Tell us that their money is made the 'expense of others'"
It is. Low wages, low prices, low quality products bought in bulk, driving other stores in the area out of business.
"I think your buddy Suzianne says on the 'the backs of others'."
For some reason she can't stand me but that's besides the point. Yes, it's an adequate expression, meant to signify what walmart workers (or amazon) are: wage slaves.
"Start about how we should attack the rich, and attack the corporations, who made your computer and your car"
"Attack", such a strong word for "making rich people pay their fair share of tax, share that has diminished constantly since eisenhower".
"Uhhh, your computer wouldn't have been made in the USA, would it?"
Probably China more likely. What's your point? If there is evil in the world i can't point it out until i have rid myself of all earthly possessions and live in a cage.
"Your next paragraph, abut Bezos, et al, not worth discussing. You need to get with the program. I bet your neighbor got an amazon pkg today. "
Some people live in ignorance. Some people don't know what suffering their comfort has caused. That doesn't make them bad people. People can choose what they get outraged about and it doesn't make them hypocrites because lots of things are built with pain and suffering.
"You prob never do order from Amazon, do you??"
"What kind of world do you want, anyway?"
A better one than today.
"Do you think we should all just go into our basement and make what we need? "
No. This reminds me of a charicature of people using idiotic arguments like these. Someone says "Society is unfair and we should improve it somehwat" and an asshat like you says "Yet, you live in this unfair society and benefit from it. Curious. I am very smart"
"So if I invent the cure for AIDS, and give shots in my living room for $1000, should the government be able to tell me to lower my price?"
Glad you brought it up. Did you invent the cure for AIDS with research grants from the government (aka tax payer money)? Then of course the government should be able to tell you what to charge.
If you discovered AIDS cure on your own hoewever, you may charge whatever you want. But the government should be allowed to say "you want the protection of a patent? So that nobody else can manufacture it? Then you can't charge more than X". It would be the price you pay for a service the government provides.
