You mean to tell me that there are people posting at DU that actually work and collect a paycheck?
I read the thread on this over at DU (it’s locked, BTW - the original poster removed it, but the comments are still there). The best I can gather, it looks like they all work as Whole Foods or Starbucks and make $10 an hour, and want to blame their economic condition on the one percent. Just my observation.
There is a guy that sits next to me at work he is around 30 years old, and he is absolutely convinced that the Bush tax cuts caused the recession. I asked him to explain this to me. He thinks that it took a lot of money out of the economy, because the “rich” kept it in their banks. If we just raise the taxes back on the rich, the money will be reintroduced to the economy. I said, everyone got a tax cut, and everyone will face a tax increase, but he seem adament that this is the solution.
I guess we shall see. He clearly doesn’t understand economics.
