Did he compensate them fairly? Not at all.
I have to agree, Bill Gates did not invent the PC. If he did, then Al Gore single-handedly invented the Internet

Don't make bastille day necessary and bastille day won't happen. You sold out your country for a bag of fritos and a can of Koch. That makes you so much worse than a communist.

Do you even know what my political stance is? I have serious doubts that you do

Party A is destroying this country, all they do is pander to special interests. This is a moral outrage. It is just so gosh darn wrong for them to do that, it makes my blood boil. Class warfare has gone on long enough in this country and it is high time it comes to an end.

That is why I strongly support Party B. They will pass laws that will cater to my class and will finally pass laws to the detriment of the other classes, so that my class can begin to benefit from that which we have long been rightfully deprived. Finally, my class will begin to prevail once I elect Party B into office. We're going to make the other classes pay, and pay dearly.... as they so richly deserve.... make them suffer, and finally we'll get politicians in there that will do for us. Finally, there will be no more class warfare and special interest pandering in this great country that I am going to help to fix by getting politicians to side with my special interest group, instead of their special interest group!


Yep.... rejoice.... things are really going to be different around here once "my group" takes control. No more class warfare and special interest pandering like those evil Group A people are guilty of doing, and no more passing laws that benefit Group A which was a moral travesty. Now, we're going to pass laws that benefit Group B.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Democrats are most against the middle class. They are a coalition of elitists and the underclass teaming up to destroy what's left of the middle class.

All I know, being middle class, I lived far better under an R president than a D....

Anyone else I've ever asked to be honest says the same.

They pander to the voters. Maybe the national animal should be changed to the pander. The Chinese would enjoy the irony.

As far as I'm concerned no human being on the face of the earth deserves, has worked for or earned the right to have that much money or that much wealth. Sorry.........until we get population under control the global planet needs some serious redistribution of wealth. And it can start with the billionaires of the world. Take, at gunpoint if necessary half of all their wealth!

if the banks weren't bailed out, that reset would've taken place in 2008. i love the way they twisted it though saying they were doing it for the little guy. hilarious!

we don't need a new income tax bracket. what we need are laws which allow people to start and run a business without the heavy hand of govt doing everything in their power to shut them down!
