Been on here a couple days and I see an interesting trend in the commentary.
Money when owned by people is Evil, Money given to the government is Benevolent
Money earned from inevesting is Evil, Money earned from labor honorable
Money cant fix things if owned by people, but if the government takes it from the people or prints more the problems go away
People who pay taxes are asking for spending restraint, people who pay no taxes demand more free services & benefits
Why is that money held by people and used for their interest is worthless and evil and money taken by government can solve EVERYTHING?
Social Security is broke - Answer? Take more money from the people
Education system stinks - Answer? Take more money in taxes, pay teachers more (never mind that we had higher test scores when Dept of Ed had a $32B budget vice the $70B budget today)
401k's have postiive returns over 30 years - public sector union pensions are broke, but if the greedy rich just paid more they could fix that too
