    ahh chu

    Rand just tore him up..

    to answer the OP question..

    we give the billionaires loans, as payback for the hefty presidential campaign contributions.

    does anyone think these people donate out of the goodness of their hearts?

    Well exactly. What do you do with billions of dollars? You can only have so many mansions and Ferraris, so what do you buy? Influence, you buy influence with billions, power with billions.
     
  5. The government robs from the middle class and rich to give to the poor, then robs from the poor and middle class to give to the ultra rich.

    The middle class gets screwed in both cases. American fascism destroys the middle class.

    "The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation."

    - Lenin

    Just replace bourgeoisie with middle class and that's America.
     

  6. Well bourgeoisie is just an outdated term for middle class so it works.
