So you feel that a dope smoking high school drop out should make as much as a college educated person who's been a productive member of the work force for a good number of years?
If the college educated person was part of a system that was totally bailed out for it's failures, using money that then is not available for main street and distorts the entire economy so that there are less and less jobs for the dumb asses while there are more and more people competing for them, illegal immigrants, out of simple survival instinct, the smart college educated person needs to think about what ought to be done to quell the masses and make sure they see hope and reason to work and try and do better.
The reality is that we rewarded failure at the top. The best and the brightest got bailed out. The dumb asses don't see hope, don't see opportunity and, if computed properly, we're looking at 12% unemployed or so, so, all those people are not helping.
If we say 'too bad, survival of the fittest' then, OK. All well and good. However, in my view, that is a recipe for disaster when enough people stop caring and don't see the opportunities and the optimism for the future that our generation used to see back when we were kids an the only adults at McDonalds were managers. Of course, in our day, when someone on Wall Street screwed up real bad, they ate it. They didn't get a bonus for it.
We have more and more lifelong poor and we have more and more rich, all at the expense of the middle class. Recipe for disaster IF we all agree that the US's strength is that it is, was, a middle class driven nation.
