    Is in fact a non-reality per the other comments I've made here...  That is the rhetoric of demagogues that ignore the very rapid advancement of standard of living we've seen in the past couple of hundred and even the past 40-50 years.  How many homes have washing machines and high speed internet capability?  Who is going hungry?  I don't condone unchecked greed, but trying to repress it through redistribution retards innovation and hurts us all...

      it into Truth. Back to Texas with you... you've got your own serious demagogue skills to add to.

      Where have we heard that crap about "everybody has a microwave and TV, so it proves we're all better off" before? One of the favorite RW baits?

      As to who is going hungry, you hang around here and read the dairies, maybe -- so you should have a pretty good picture of who exactly is going hungry. And how many of us. And the plans to strip ever more wealth and income from the many of us to ensure the, ah,, "comfort" of the few of us.
