    This is why you discourage workers from sharing paycheck information. Someone is sure to get angry.

    Except the Occupy Wall St. parasites don`t think they should have to produce a rock, or anything else of value, for that matter.

    And, right on cue, here comes OldOllie to infect a funny video with monkeys and turn it into vitriolic partisan political ultra-right-wing conservative bile.

    Dude, it`s a monkey throwing bits of cucumber. It was posted by one of your own team (AJ). It`s cute and funny. But no, Ollie.

    I winced at the Wall Street reference, because it is so forced, but the behavior is so funny and cute and human.

    davy, in case you missed it, it was that prick narrator who turned it into vitriolic partisan political ultra-left-wing liberal bile by equating it with the Wall St. protests. There`s a difference between getting equal pay for equal work and demanding a share of someone else`s pay for doing no work. But then I guess if you understood that, you wouldn`t be a liberal.

    @OldOllie I note the other monkey is not sharing his grapes. Nom nom nom.

    Some of us have evolved beyond monkeys. If you understood that you`d be a liberal.

    oldollie - next are you going to claim that they were trained to act that way? this is why the thought that keeping the paycheck amount secret is retarded. its just another way to screw people over. if your doing the same work and have been there for the same amount of time the pay should be the same. if they do a poo job get rid of them, if they put forth more effort promote them.

    oldollie - the best part about you is the fact you only have about 20 years left. and in about 10, you will be leaching off of the same system you have been bitching about your whole life. that or you will have one accident and be forever poor. makes me wonder though, will you still keep the same ideals you have now?

    @Draculya, liberals are really generous with other people`s money. When it comes to their own money, not so much.

    @jops, if you`re so damned much smarter than all the employers in the country, you should be able to start your own business, hire all the best underpaid workers away from the mean skinflint employers at a "fair" wage, and out-compete them in the marketplace. So, why haven`t you done it? You`re a typical arrogant liberal, just like Obama. This assclown has never run anything in his life except his mouth, and he needs a teleprompter to do that, yet he thinks he`s more qualified to run a business than the people who actually do it.

    And they`re not "ideals"; they`re principles. You ought to get some.

    @chacklet, you can just go f*** yourself, that is if you can get it up.

    " if your doing the same work and have been there for the same amount of time the pay should be the same."

    Sure... Now show me where you have two people doing exactly the same work for exactly the same time that are getting paid different amounts.

    OldOllie- the `prick narrator` is actually showing results of research into animal morality. Monkeys and apes are showing some interesting ideas about how morality formed in humans, what adaptive advantages it shows and so forth. so perhaps, if you disagree with the results, you should do some reasearch yourself. Get the funding and get it

    I don`t disagree with the results; I disagree with his INTERPRETATION of the results, in particular, his false analogy that the parasitic OWS scum are contributing just as much to society as the so-called 1% and therefore are entitled to be equally rewarded.

    Meanwhile, you really should learn how to hit the back button, edit your post, and delete the previous post. It`s not rocket science

    No, that quivering is caused by you spanking it while you`re reading my post out loud.

    @OldDollie
    ROFLMAO at YOU! That is two posts where you seem to be imagining me in various sexual acts... though I am flattered, I am also quite disgusted and offended. Please keep your demented fantasies limited to your usual children and furry animals (but you must promise NEVER to act out your sick desires, okay?). Seek some help, would ya`? I`m sure Obamacare can help you out!

    Old Ollie- did you read the bits about the duck? If you disagree with his results then ask for the raw data and reinterpret it....

    madduck, is it too much to ask that you actually READ my posts before responding to them? I already said I don`t disagree with the results, just his dishonest, factually incorrect, and politically motivated analogy at the end. Using his analogy, the OWS crowd don`t think they should have to give a rock to get a grape -- they think they`re just entitled to someone else`s grapes by virtue of their mere existence.

    @OO,

    I missed, or chose to ignore, his OWS comment. You are right to challenge it as it is not representative of the information presented by the monkeys.

    If only the people interpreting the information were more honest, like the monkeys, then we wouldn`t have so many crazy scientific pronouncements which so often lead to laws.

    The monkeys were paid differently for the same job, their complaint is legitimate. Bankers and politicians are thieves and liars, they still claim a wage while stealing from all of us, including you. They deserve cucumber. I believe it is readily available in prison.

    An-egg, I wouldn`t have a house or a business if it weren`t for bankers. They perform an essential service in a free-market economy, and they`re paid what the market thinks they`re worth.

    If you want to know what a country looks like without private banking, look at the old Soviet Union, East Germany, Cuba, or North Korea.

    However, a country without politicians...now THAT sounds like a great idea!

    oldollie- your "principals" will only last as long as they are beneficial to you. as soon as your health/paycheck goes south, so will they. also i do own a business, we have around 30 employees ad they get payed according to their job, simple as that. there is no differences in pay due to me liking someone else more than the other. if i think they deserve more i allow them to move up in the company. if they drat off most of the day, i warn them then eventually get rid of them. i am not biased, i give what the work deserves and my employees show that. granted i cannot compete with those that constantly receive government help but i do fine. what have you done lately? how do you help your community?
