You may call the man on the street greedy and helpless and in search of his next bowl of bailout soup and a ten thousand dolllar lexus, if it makes you feel better, keep feeding yourself the government issued caviar..... we all know which way the welfare really flows in this day and age, and some of us are saying enough is enough...

"You dont care about others!"I was expecting this answer. I spend at least 3 months a year volunteering in soup kitchens and helping under privileged kids get out slums and make something of themselves. I teach them to rely on themselves and not the government or others. I teach them to make their own opportunities in life. If this makes me evil and uncaring then so be it. Just curious how much time do you spend helping others?

It is true, at the end of the day I do put family and myself first. That is why I will succeed.

People aren't complaining that you have more money and they have less money. They are complaining about opportunities afforded them. The biggest corporations get to where they are through the halls of congress, they get to where they are on the backs of the people and the power those people represent. When they turn around and stick a knife in those people and gut them of opportunity, unrest is to be expected.

There are much less opportunities afforded to citizens of countries that are socialist or socialist leaning than in the United States. Plenty of opportunity to do very well in this country. If you are citizen of the United States you have it pretty good. Government trying to level the playing field by redistributing wealth will lead to fewer opportunities for all. Wonder how that is working for Hugo Chavez and Venezuela. Gets tiresome people running around with smartphones and ipads while calling all these corporations "evil". Corporations stated goal is to make a profit. What do shareholders want? For them to make a profit. If they profit many benefit including employees all the way down the food chain. I am sure some corporations are evil. But by and large most do much more good than government does for society.

Reality is Obama is not just trying to repatriate the wealth of the big multi nationals. He is also going after small business owner and if has his way all will suffer including the poor. I have a small business and I pay a ridiculous amount of taxes right now. If the government takes more what do you think happens. It will put many small business owners out of business. But before that happens they first will start to fire people. Lets be honest I hire people to do certain things that I could do myself. Before I lower my standard of living someone else may lose their job and I will do the work myself. Multiply this thousands of times over and what happens. Less jobs. Do you really think the money the government took from me will create jobs or will it be wasted?

Enough of my Diatribe for the day.

"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."

What is socialist? There are socialists on both sides of the political spectrum. On the far left you have the commies, on the far right you the fascists and nazis. Both are socialist. It doesn't matter if your government bureaucracy is designed to feed the working class or the ruling class, it's socialism. Why is it that republicans call everybody who is looking out for the rights of the common man labeled a socialist? It's total hypocrisy.

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. These are the "inalienable rights" with which all human beings are endowed by their Creator and for the protection of which they institute governments. When you trample on these rights in the name of" helping others and making it fair and level playing field" you stop being government of the people, for the people and start becoming a people controlled by the government for the government. This is socialism. Freedom and liberty will be gone and happiness will be the stuff of dreams.

Is this what you want?

Just been reading your last few posts and think maybe what you really ought to focus on is the rampant cronyism that happens on both sides of the aisle. I think that is a large part of the problem with our system...it's been totally corrupted
