"Let them eat cake."

"They would die under the blade of the guillotine. 

For over a hundred years Versailles stood for the power and prestige of the Bourbon dynasty.

But it also stood for a society that was fundamentally, unfair and corrupt.

Romantic, but royally debauched.

Glittering, but grotesquely unequal.

Magnificent, but profoundly immoral. 

A society who's time was up."

 

- from The Rise and Fall of Versailles 

 

 

Those words ironically, describe the situation with the would be aristocratic and self-absorbed ruling class in America today.

Out of touch with reality, selfish, arrogant and walking straight towards what just might be the beginnings of an uprising, not seen since the days of the French revolution of 1789.

How long do you think it will be before the cake gets baked that they'll have to eat too?

The chief ingredient of that cake that will bring down the lightning, so to speak, is their arrogant approach to their lawlessness.  Instead of trying to hide it as they have for so long, they now smile as they screw the commoners over.  Just look at Strzok and Brennan.  When respect for law and the willingness to comply are lost, it all falls down.  It really IS that simple an equation.

Right and today "bread" is what a lot of people don't have because of the cake being baked (to oust Trump) by the criminals in power who won't stand for the rule of:

We THE People.

Scrawled over a filthy urinal in the backwoods of Mississippi:

"Please don't throw gum or cigarette butts into urinal

It makes the gum salty and the butts too hard to light"

:P

Bull.  What do you call investing in the stock market?  How many billionaires do you think could come up with a billion in cash?  Probably none because their money is all in play.

nothing will happen, there will be no uprising, that is why media and ruling elite spend so much effort to divide us, they will provide 1 group what they want, in return to opposing other group.  money\riches have always ruled the world, and it will never change.

Remember that back in late 18th century France, "cake" was just bread.

And in Roman times, the bread in "Bread and Circuses" was just bread.

And we shouldn't try.  Accumulation of wealth is what improves the human condition, not redistribution.  The goal of humanity shouldn't be to create a better NHS, but to better the individual.  Have each individual being capable of supporting themselves and family, not burden others (government).  There is plenty of wealth to go around if we are willing to develop it, instead of stealing it.  This nation is far from perfect, but it is on the right track.

We the people, not we the Trump.  Do you understand the concept of E Pluribus Unum?

i agree, that is why i get angry when some deadbeat who has not  held  a job for more than a week, says rich people owe him.   no i'm not talking about op here. this is what entire concept of redistribution looks like to me

whose reality? i hope you do not suggest reality is the same for all of us, cuz it is not, we build our own reality around us, our priorities, choices we make in life,  make our reality.  a reality for a crackhead is very different from a doctors reality.  just as they both are different from a bus driver reality, they all have different needs, priorities, and make different life choices

Which changes nothing about the real reality.

Absolutely and that is why we should cut off the welfare states now,  Virginia, Kentucky, New Mexico and West Virginia all get back more in federal welfare than they pay in taxes.  Virginia gets about $2 back for every dollar citizens pay in taxes and this has been going on for years.  Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Arkansas, Arizona, and Louisiana are all swilling from the federal trough slurping up about $2 for every dollar they pay the feds. In all 40 states get back more than they put in.

Cut off these dead beat states now and unleash the power of states whose economies generate more money than they get back in handouts.

New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts have  less than 12% of US population and produce 18% of US revenues.  California, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, and Washington are also on the contributor side.

 

What is it with all of these socialists that disguise themselves as Republicans?

I think you probably meant  redistribute in the sense of giving money to non-working or unworthy.

Money accumulated is not the same as money working, only when it is used is it a value to the economy.  A million dollars buried in your backyard does no one any good.  When you start a business and redistribute your money to other people for their labor or skills then you are doing something.  When you redistribute your own salary to buy clothes, groceries, a house, a car, a hair cut or whatever then you are making money work in the economy.  Money is only a useful counter to trade what you want for what I have or what I can do.   The exchange of money is what drives me to make you a new dining table or fix your car or grow your food. That allows me to choose to work hard and grow a lot of food or buy tools to fix more cars or invest in a cabinet shop.

But I get your point,money is a way to make things happen.

state A grows food for states A,B,C.  state B makes cars for states A,B,C. state C makes clothes for states A,B,C.  all pay taxes according to their income, there is  a lot less income margin for selling food and clothing than for selling cars,  management of states, aka feds, allocate tax revenue according to state needs, but according to you, states A and C are getting more than they pay, so they needs to be cut off,   now with no food and clothes where does it leave state B?? 

do you really think you are looking at big picture, and consider all variables? from your posts it sure doesn't seem that way
