"Most Americans have no idea that a horrific economic collapse could happen at literally any time. There is no way that all of this debt and all of this financial corruption is sustainable. At some point we are going to reach a moment of "total system failure"."

Only 12? That's down from 22 in the other thread. I'd say that's real progress.

All these problems would be easily solved if they would just TAX THE RICH. Where has all that money gone? Into the hands of the rich, of course, the uber-rich, the billionaires and soon-to-be trillionaires of the world. Another good idea would be to tax foreign earnings far more than domestic earnings - all those companies making a bundle by outsourcing to China, etc would be forced to produce at home, like they should have been all along.

But when the poop hits the moving blades of the great big fan in the sky, and everyone's broke, there will be one place the government (with the support of a desperate populace behind it) will turn to for salvation - and that will be to TAX THE RICH. And tax them right into oblivion. Buh-bye richies, your time will have come and gone...cyas in another century or two...

Sometimes it pays to be poor...LOL.

The rich seem to be all the solution that the liberal have. That hasn't changed for decades now. But it doesn't seem to have worked too well. We now have 50% that pay no taxes and 69% that consume more than they produce. That can go on forever and still think that the others can provide wealth to evrybody has we have sen i the past. the fact is what it has done is change the market place of who are the producers and who owns the product of that production.We are like a family with a growing number of childfren to support really .

Maf763 - It is three less reasons than his spam thread from last year about the impending collapse of 2010 along with sage advice to store up food and supplies:

It is almost like watching someone with a bucket on their head repeatedly ramming into a wall.

Right... Let's all blame those bad rich people, the owners of all the companies/capital that make profits to create jobs, pay employee benefits, and grow the economy. JUST TAX THE RICH as how could it ever affect their desire/ability to create new businesses and jobs in the U.S.?

I too am getting tired of these spams on a (supposedly) professional business forum. Perhaps they can start another forum for these doomsday people who love to blame the rich for all problems in the world.
