"Things are not as black and white as ... would have it..." sayeth The Hermit. Then he hollers:

The poor get poorer so that the rich will get richer..... it is a fact of life.....resources are not unlimited.. only the clever idiots believe that they are.

The price of everything can be reduced to wages+profit, we all know where the wages come from ..... but where does the profit?
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Benefits claimants here got an above inflation rise in income last year while workers pay was either frozen or cut.

That commie economies do not work is more apparent now than ever.  Even in Castro's Cuba in fact he recently said so himself.

"The landlord cannot find a way to eliminate the tenant and get income directly from the land
but the tenant can cultivate the land without the assistance of the landlord."

Obama wants to increase Federal Taxes on the richest from 35% to about 39%, a similar ploy worked for Bill Clinton and he got balanced budgets though he didn't have the huge national debt Obama has now.
