The Super Rich are mad as hell - and doing great - Jan. 28, 2014

Can we please stop hurting their feelings?... I think someone needs to start a charity .

Can we please stop attacking these billionaires? It's getting out of hand.

Yes, it is. Just like everything else with you left wingers do. Shut up, get a job and earn your own pile instead of constantly stamping your feet and demanding someone elses.

Considering blue states provide more federal revenue than red states maybe it is you that should get a job. This argument is such bs I get sick of it. Go get your free Safelink phone that Bush signed for while you're at it.

The most ridiculous thing in that article wasn't the statement by the rich guy. He's professionally out of touch. It's to be expected. What's truly crazy is that the list of solutions to our inequality at the end are labelled as "far left." Nationalizing banks would be far left, ok I'll give them that one. But we did just have a collosal financial meltdown, after all, in which the government had to step in and save the day. The rest are hardly even left at all. Taxing unearned income at the same rate as earned income? Straight of out of the pages of Marx!!! (Sarcasm)

How pathetically typical of you to start throwing such simple minded sterotypes out there as soon as someone challenges your self-entitled elistist garbage. You libs all claim to be the kings of compassion and tolernance when in fact most of you are the absolute worst types of hypocrites. Shouldn't you be at a Harry Reid fundraiser?

Now, I'm going to quit posting in this thread before I really get mad.

Calm down, pal. After Obamacare kicks in you'll finally be able to get the meds you so desperately need.

The attacks are unproductive..an absolute waste of time.


OWS' time would be better spent Occupying a Work Station.

Right, they are just one more minimum wage job with no benefits away from freedom.

As soon as I saw the name Schwarzman and the term Nazi - that was enough for me. Watch the documentary 740 Park Ave.

I'm telling you, the billionaires have it rough! If we keep taxing them, not only will they have to cut down to 15 or so mansions, but they might also have to get rid of the car elevators, put off buying the 10th 200 ft yacht, and reduce the illegal immigrant estate staff. I feel for these poor, poor billionaires, I really do. I'm an empathetic, compassionate person, and I hate to see anyone experience true suffering, real adversity, hardship of such crippling magnitude. No one, absolutely no one deserves an existence of such penury, such bitter poverty. It's truly heartbreaking. The billionaires always, always fight for us, so let's fight for them! Let's all do what's right and fight for our billionaire brothers and sisters! We cannot tax the billionaires, we must not tax the billionaires! Come on everybody, shout it with me now! All together now!
