i stopped when he said "ideal distribution" shut up. If you don't like capitalism then move. The world hates americans because even our most poor indigent (relative to the rest of the population) people live better than a majority of the rest of the planet. Not my fault. You can always just move here; legally or otherwise; now the natural borns have to respect them "illegals".... fml a world based on economic equality means no choices; don`t you understand!?

But how about a wealthy class that is only rich enough to live very, very comfortably but not rich enough to sock away millions and millions (in some cases billions) of extra money they will never finish spending and won't do charitable acts with?

What the hell do you think these people do with their money, fill up a room with $100 bills and wallow in it naked? They INVEST it in stocks, bonds, banks, venture capital, etc., thus making it available to entrepreneurs to build companies that produce valuable and desired products and services, and thus create jobs.

When capital is controlled by the private sector, we get Apple, Amazon, and Ford. When capital is controlled by socialist central planners, we get Solyndra, Fannie Mae, and Trabant.

lt633c-"NO ONE's time is worth 25, 50 or 115 MILLION dollars a year."

Your opinion on the matter is neither required nor relevent.

t633c-"How could a cereal stacker "significantly" affect the store's success, so that he gets paid more ?"

Demonstrate that theres a better way to stack the cereal, or that he`d be a better asset to the company in another job. You know, impress the management.

The reason cereal stacking pays so little is pretty much a trained monkey can do it. Demonstrate that you`re worth more than a trained monkey.

t633c-"Most workers at Wally World can`t support a family, as most are part time employees earning just over minumum wage."

That`s because they have no job skill worth a salary it takes to support a family. They`re working jobs designed for high-school juniors because they have no marketable skills. If they did, they wouldn`t be stocking cereal.

It`s not the Walton`s fault they decided to raise a family with the inability to support them.

I don't get this talk from these lazy people demanding a revolution against the wealthy. Most wealthy people have worked very hard for their wealth or at least someone before them. Everyone has the same opportunities but no one takes it, they just want hand outs for the small amount of work they do.

It`s America for a reason, everyone has an opportunity. In another country with a caste system people accept their place and never grow out of it and they don`t complain that their are people more wealthy than themselves. But you`re right in the country of opportunity you should whine and complain that you`re not being treated fairly rather than go out and actually DO something.
