WOW, the more you post the crazier it gets, I think the bottom line here is... I, as a practising Catholic look for the GOOD in all people, you as a ???? look for the bad in people, I am very happy in my life and feel very fortunate to have good relationships with people of ALL nationalities races and religions, where you on the other hand lead a very shallow closed life, you make determinations based on some narrow minded view of people, I feel very sorry for you, try looking for the good in people and I think your life will change for the better, after all, you don;t seem to be very happy, hope things get better for you.

Why do you insist on getting in the mud with people like Andysdead, why not show you are above such vitriol, why use this forum to trash Teddy? There are crazy people on both sides, why would you want to put yourself in that camp?

Why is this relevant? I went to the site that Andrew help create, The Huffington Post, I just wanted to see what people on the left were saying, I read about 6 pages of the over 2100 comments and I could not find anything negative, all the comments were positive , people may not agree with his politics but they respect his rights and freedoms to express his views, you have a right to dislike Teddy, but is this really the time to express it??

RIP Andrew, condolences to the family, your life was cut far to short, I may not agree with Andrew's world view, but I respect the passion he brought to the discussion.

I didn't say there would never be a top 400, what I am saying is that having an economy where the top 400 have more wealth than the bottom 50% is disastrous, and that is not my view it is the view of just about every living economist on the planet, please give me the name of one who would disagree.

"This class conflict strategy of the left appeals to those who know they have failed at life and desperately need someone on whom to blame that failure."

We are pointing blame at a failed system, a system that has allowed a Plutocracy to exist, a system that has allowed money to take over our political system. a system that has determined that money is speech and therefore the ones with the most money have the loudest voices, these are just a few examples of whom we blame, these examples are some of the SAME issues raised by the Tea Party back when I was in full support of the Tea Party, why did the Tea Party s message change??

I think the bigger question here is... should the parking attendant be paid less than a living wage, should we allow employers to essentially have a slave work force? before you get all worked up let me explain myself... When slave ownership was legal, they provided clothing, food and a roof over their heads, today if you earn minimum wage you cannot afford all three of the essentials of life, oh yes, you would have your freedom, but what is freedom if you cannot afford the basic necessities of life?

The average "minimum" living wage in the US is a around 12 dollars an hour, if an employer is paying 7 dollars an hour in a state that has a minimum living wage of 12 dollars an hour, what do you call that employer??

Do yourself favour, read the findings by leading economists, check out the links I have posted for your friend Bohemond, unless you prefer to continue to go through life with your head in the sand, up to you.

"In fact, the top 1% (therefore roughly 3 million Americans) controls 22% of the wealth in the US, a figure essentially unchanged since the 1970s."

Here are the views of economists, many references available, just ask..

This is one article of several hundred backed by an equal amount of published articles: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/16/busine… - rich do not pay 80% of taxes as someone claimed.

Personally I could care less if you believe me, I certainly don't need to waist any more time on you, but if you are interested in a response to your bigoted view on Muslims please read my reply to Off Dooty.
