    That where I get lost in all this. Frankly I dont get the fuss. The influence or impact is simply that which people allow it to be on them. The weak ones aren't those demonstrating but instead it's those who let it impact any influence on them without their own ability to assess within their own mind. Heck, what's a total joke about this is all these folks are now all upset and acting out as if this wasn't already happening before Trump used it to distract from other issues. Why didn't they burn jerseys as such before? It's all a BS joke. Their influence is nothing unless weak individuals let it be.

    The 1 preventers in a corporate career don't likely come and go as quickly.

    Opinion? Or do you have anything to back that up?

    Certainly opinion but I'll look for some stars if there are any. That said, simply think about the 1 per enters you know that are not athletes and assess how many in corporate America lose that income over a short period of time. Some, but man, not many. I'd suggest that the folks I know probably stated in that category for at least 15 years.

    You'd be surprised. The top 1% fluctuates and whoever they are that given year - they always pay in a big butt load of Federal Income taxes.

    They certainly might and they do pay I'm sure. But my point is that many of them benefit from, directly or indirectly, government programs or funding. It is what it is though.

    They pay for the programs that they benefit from? The top being housing, food and transportation.

    Not nearly to the extent to those who don't pay in and yet benefit from the said same programs. Subsidized housing. Subsidized food. Subsidized transportation.

    It is what it is though. The productive class pays for the dependent class.

    Until they went out on their own I used to annually recognize my kids with the "consumer of the year" award.

    Bang,
    Your opinions don't amount to a tinkers dam when concerning anything to do with US politics and policy. Your own liberal views is why Canucks are envious of our representative form of government. If you want to improve your stance, get rid of your socialist form of government.
