  •  Substitute the word "blacks" (0+ / 0-)

    for "one-percenters". For some reason you think you can stereotype people based on income, as if success in and of itself determines how good a person is. Just ugly.

    •  False equivalence. (1+ / 0-)

      You know, psychologists will tell you that psychopaths, who are 1% of the general population, are 10% of executives.

      It IS a special population, by definition.

      Just as you can say that center-fielders tend to be faster than players at other positions, on the whole, you can say that 1 percenters are more selfish than everyone else, too. That has also been established.

      And my own experience, with 15 years as a corporate executive and 10 off an on as a small business owner in a market heavy with 1 percenters bore that out.

      You know which customers were most likely to give labor employees a decent tip in an industry where that is customary? Rich ones. Especially those with $10M+ homes. Same people who were most likely to make bogus claims in order to get money back... Just the way it is.

      The reason the 1% is so powerful is that 99% of the 99% has a sleeping sickness. ☮ ♥ ☺
