I would think you would have more respect for a person who violently disagreed with the government did something about it.

The percentages you asked for are: The top 1% had an income increase of 281% since 1979 and the top 20% had an increase of 95% which was less than inflation. Those in the bottom 80% made less. Yes its true that 60% of the richest Americans made it on their own but that doesnt mean much when you actually read what RGR wrote. The income of the top 1% represented 23% of total income in 2009 and it was 10% from 1950 till1980, 15% in 1990. Calling someone a moron doesnt make them wrong it just holds you to a higher standard of intelligence which you clearly cannot afford. If you are not smarter than he is then I guess you have to be an idiot or an imbecile.

The real moochers are republicans. Although I am sure that arithmetic doesnt matter, Of the top 20 states who get more from the federal government 16 are red states. The same congressmen who voted not to fund relief for the 9/11 workers or victims of hurricane Sandy were the first in line when their states had floods or storms.

The top highest paid 50 federal employees are all doctors who are paid less than they would make in industry but none of them make more than the head of a washington "think tank". What percentage of the overpaid idiots in the DC area are lobbyists, think tank parasites, and lawyers as opposed to federal employees and who does the most damage.

Not that it matters to anyone involved in this discussion but the numbers tell the story. The banks in Cyprus have deposits amounting to 8 times their GNP. If US banks had the same ratio they would have more than all the money in the world.Their banks were (are) being used to launder money
Great idea we would quickly retire the national debt as corporations account for 9% of revenues and to eliminate cap gains discounts would raise taxes on the upper 5% by at least 20%. Dont think its happening we wouldnt want to tax the "job creators" who pay for election expenses.

So what's the solution? Laws or regulation to stop this sort of short term investment bank looting? High taxes on people who make money by destroying companies? How about this suggestion? If you are an investment banker you have to pay tax on any money made by leveraging other people's money as ordinary income and the rate for any income over 10 million is taxed at 50% or how about make them personally responsible for the company's bankruptcy
