    Way to twist the true meaning. The makers who work and pay their taxes. The takers that won’t work because they’re making more not working sponging off of entitlements that they didn’t pay in to.

    And where does the capital come from to get the materials and pay the wages?

    Oddly enough, the conservative mind has no trouble with exploitation, wage theft, financial inequality and corporate welfare, all while trying valiantly to destroy the middle class.

    Let’s see: Some guy with money

    Bought the lot
    Bought the materials
    Paid the workers

    And Luckovich apparently thinks the workers are the ones that should reap all the profits after having invested nothing in the project.

    I have nothing against those in the 1% who actually create goods, jobs, technology, services, etc. They earned it. We need more people like Steve Jobs. The same for people like Warren Buffet, who invest for the long-term, which enables others to create goods, jobs, etc.

    My problem is with those in the 1% who make their money based purely on short-term return-on-investment, which benefits few outside of Wall Street. And they make huge campaign contributions to politicians who let them continue doing what they do, and write tax laws that allow them to pay long-term rates on short-term profits (15% instead of 35%).

    Good job! You used “moron” twice and “tea party” once. I was beginning to wonder if you started taking your meds again, Guess not. .

    The bank? Nope. The investors behind the builder? Wrong again.

    Ultimately, the capital comes from the working people who will actually buy & live in the house.

    All the profits? No, but it would be nice to have our fair share. Used to be that way, not anymore.

    Nobody, NOBODY, who is a billionaire got their money in a legal and/or moral way. They all have skeletons in their closets…

    While Jobs & Gates didn’t become billionaires without making enemies by being on the right end of some lopsided arrangements, they did actually create an entire, new industry. They are the minority. Most of our 1% are glorified Wall Street middle men, who have figured out to make billions in an instant.

    Only a total retard, or a tea party moron, would believe that the top 1% are anything but the worst criminals in the world, they do not earn any of what they steal from all of us.

    While I agree that a few dealmakers have gamed the system, I don’t think calling people who haven’t figured that out yet, ‘morons’ is going to get them to think about it.

    Investors deserve a fair return, executives & dealmakers deserve a fair bonus. The links between performance & pay seem to be broken, though.

    That’s why the guy with the money paid the workers. That was their fair share as negotiated between them and their employer. Unless the workers also invested in the project wtih their own money they don’t deserve a cut of the profits, just a paycheck.
