Statistically, people who continue to make statements that the Daily Show viewers are more informed than Fox viewers, dont know that the study which came up with that, was seriously flawed, and used assumptions that have been proven wrong, thus making your statement, a prime example of people who think they know more, but clearly dont.

Being rich doesn't automatically make anybody a hero. Many rich use their money for evil, like George Soros, for example.

I don't have a problem with anyone who has become wealthy through success. Successful money management, success in their career path, starting and growing a successful company. These are all good things, worthy of recognition, and are examples to be followed.

The Left should be championing this kind of success, just as we conservatives do. Instead, they ridicule successful people and try to bring them down. Why is that? Doesn't everybody wish to be successful?

We need the government to get out of the way so that entrepreneurship can flourish, providing opportunities for people at all levels to improve their living standards and build success, however they define that for themselves.

Not everybody wants to be rich. But everybody wants to make a better life for themselves. Liberals do everything they can to prevent achievement.

The "income inequality" meme, and it's companion, that there is "too much wealth concentrated at the top," is a war on success. They would really rather have limits on how much one can be paid, or how much one can earn. How often have we heard, "when is enough, enough?"

"Income inequality' is not a societal problem. It is caused by too much government, which makes it difficult for small business start-ups, entrepreneurship, that will provide new jobs at all levels, and opportunity for people to advance and grow their own careers and financial freedom.

Reagan said it best when he stated, "Government is the problem."

Why do Jon Stewart and Bill Maher have such huge annual salaries while claiming they don't believe in income inequality? Hmmm...?

Are liberals really that stupid?

Good question. Personally, I think, yes, they are.

the weirdest thing about Stewart was he was biatching about those guys debating and going after each other on Crossfire a few years ago, a debate show. lol

Default Jon Stewart Delivers Angry, Eloquent Rant On GOP's Income Inequality Problem

Jon Stewart is an entertainer and his show is entertainment, he's not really angry he is being paid to entertain you, if he was really mad he could take some of his millions and help some poor people.

he's not entertaining all that many people if we go by his ratings. I think Rush has like 100 times bigger audience despite Stewart getting all this free buzz in the media that Rush doesn't get.

One has nothing to do with the other.

Wages paid at Walmart stores (or any other store) are market driven, and based on a "value for value" agreement.

A person cannot be paid more than the value of their productivity in any given position.

Would you pay more for a product than the value of it's benefit to you?
