He is over the top no doubt but even the poorest in the United States is probably worth more in dollars than 10,000 Kenyans. That is how it has been on this planet since man came about. There always is gonna be someone who has more than others.

and again, what you say is simply not true. mankind is close to 100.000 years old, the concept of personal property, surplus production, trading of goods and ownership of land, in short capitalism, is 10.000 years old.

for 90% of the time our species has been around the concept of 'i have more than you, so i must be better than you' was just not true.

but again, certain powers wanna make you believe that this is normal, that it is 'how it always was', so you don't ask the wrong questions....

Not gonna argue back and forth about this today. It is just the way it is and regardless of how much everyone bitches about it, nothing will change.

'they're rich and my wages haven't increased and i'm close to losing my job and can barely put food on my table, but by god it's the american way and i'll defend it to the end!'

Well it sounds like everyone here has it all figured out. The good news is I am not going to run for public office, but you all should. You seem to have what it takes to fix this whole mess up there in your brain nuggets. Best of luck.

I will watch it Deja, but my point is even if we know how to fix everything we couldn't do it anyhow. The rich are gonna stay rich and the poor are gonna be poor.

Deja, glad you decided to give it another go out here with all the nut cases.

what does 85 multi-billionaires have to do with 3.5 billion poor people?
4 years ago
Has to do with 85 people alone have more money that 3.5 billion other people combined. 85 vs 3,500,000,000.

and no this isn't real news... kevin oleary is a rich, successful business man, and he just verbally spars with the chick about current financial issues...

and what he said
4 years ago
In Africa the people who have the capability and the motivation to be part of those 85 richest people, they usually end up as corrupted dictators, taking all the money from foreign aid for development.
