  •  Puleeze! Who has health insurance or sick pay? (0+ / 0-)

    There are people who work in this world. 401K? ha ha ha ha

    As I said above I'm happy anyone makes lots of money, but most people in this country don't. Poor people in NY don't make any more than poor people in east bum fuck.

    When someone is making more than 99% of Americans, they have to realize they can't be a fuck up, if they do they can go find out how everyone else lives.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      I am sorry you don't have a good job.  But that is no reason to vindictively stomp on those who have them as if they are some kind of mythical creature.  You make yourself sound so petty and mean doing that -- as if you hate those members of the 99% who are doing a little better than you, simply because they are.  

      Would it make you feel better to have everyone as physically and spiritually impoverished as you are yourself?  Must we all drown in the mud before you are free to look up at the sky and help us work for something better?

      Do you realize that's exactly the attitude the Republicans have been fostering, nursing, encouraging along for the past 30 years? Hate the poor, because they are beneath you.  Hate the slightly more well-off, because they have what you don't and they don't "deserve" it if you don't have it, too.  And the wealthy?  Honor and admire and worship the wealthy.  They have caught the brass ring -- and they will do their best to convince you that you might be next -- while never releasing it from their hands.

      There are lots of people with health insurance, sick pay, and 401(K)s.  And they are not glitteringly wealthy, they are not the bloody 1% and they do not owe you any saintly infallibility to "pay" for the sin of making a decent wage.

        Where I work, most teachers make in the forties. Many aren't paid extra for graduate degrees.  We pay for health insurance which for my family has covered nothing (deductibles are high.) We get five sick days a year. No 401ks, but a pension if you teach long enough and it is reduced depending on if you would be receiving social security and how much SS payments are.

        Stormicats has a point - that principal doesn't have to pay for making a decent wage.  I feel she should pay for her cruelty.
        I am sickened by the principal, not because she makes, likely, 100k, but because she is sadistic.

          Her pay has nothing to do with it.  If what is reported is accurate, her actions would be equally reprehensible if she made $20,000 -- or $200,000, or $2,000,000.  Wrong is wrong regardless of the pay grade, and neither a high salary nor a low one makes it more or less so.
