Redistributing Wealth Upward
By Harold Meyerson | Washington Post | September 25, 2012
Which is the more redistributionist of our two parties?
Without any doubt, the Democrats. There is no <scoff> "upward
redistribution" of wealth; the very idea is absurd. It presumes,
irrationally, that market forces would have allocated the wealth to
poorer people, but the eeeeeeevil rich people intervened and redirect
the wealth to themselves. That's bullshit. The increase in wealth
*never* would have gone to poorer people, because they don't do anything
to generate it.

This is typical left-wing bullshit. It presumes either of two wrong
things: that wealth is static, and the rich increase their share only
by taking wealth away from poorer people; or, that wealth is increased
by some sort of "collective" effort, and the rich are misappropriating
an "unfair" amount of the increase, thereby increasing their total
share. Both ideas are complete bullshit.

The share of wealth owned and controlled by rich people has increased
because they are the ones who have undertaken the efforts that have
increased the wealth. Their share also has increased because they have
successfully thwarted and in some cases *reversed* efforts to
redistribute the wealth they create away from them and toward
unproductive poorer people. If I manage to put a stop to illegal
extortion that has been regularly depriving me of wealth and income I
rightfully acquire, how can it be said - with a straight face - that I
have "upwardly redistributed" the money that used to go to the
extortionist? He never had a valid claim on it in the first place.

Well it's North up to Oregon to gather your hops
Dig the beets from your ground, cut the grapes from your vine

What is communist about the lyrics?

"California, Arizona, I harvest your crops
Well its North up to Oregon to gather your hops
Dig the beets from your ground, cut the grapes from your vine
To set on your table your light sparkling wine."

It is simply pointing out that the poor contribute to wealth generation
in many ways.

The beets in the ground and the grapes on the vine are worth nothing
unless someone is willing and able to to harvest them. Tasks which are
almost exclusively undertaken by poorer people.

And seldom undertaken by the 1%

I'm always reminded of YOUR very *special personal sentiments* regarding
the attacks of 911, Bill:

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Bill Shatzer wrote:

And over 4,000 Americans have paid with their lives for that little
adventure. Plus a half a trillion dollars in national treasure
You might compare that with the number of lives lost on 9-11. Or the
economic injury incurred from that event.
It would have been cheaper in both lives and money to just suffer
another 9-11 every six or seven years.
Peace and justice,
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I think we can ALL do well to reflect on what kind of sick sociopath
would come up with those words in honor of 911...

http://communistpartyok.org/

Woody’s work was regularly featured in the Communist Party’s newspaper
the Daily Worker under a column titled, “Woody Sez.” During the
Depression, Woody performed for Communist Party events throughout
California and, after the onset of the Second World War, was an
unapologetic supporter of the united front against fascism. He felt so
strongly about the need to unite against Nazi Germany and the
ultra-right forces of fascism that he wrote and recorded a classic
workers’ anthem titled “All You Fascists Bound to Lose.”

Woody’s sympathy for working-class movements, unions and the Communist
Party is also apparent in his most famous song, “This Land is Your
Land.” The song was written in 1944 as a direct response to Irving
Berlin’s “God Bless America,” which Woody criticized as being
nationalistic and against the spirit of the anti-fascist united front.
As a testament to Woody’s sympathies for a Marxist critique of
capitalism he included a verse in “This Land is Your Land” that is often
omitted in popular renditions of this classic:

There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me;
Sign was painted, it said private property;
But on the back side it didn’t say nothing;
This land was made for you and me.

While many have attempted to revise and reinterpret Woody’s
controversial legacy since his death, Woody himself was never afraid to
let his true colors shine. In addition to writing for the Communist
Party’s newspaper, he openly fraternized with Communists and attended
Communist Party events. Although there is some debate over whether or
not Woody was ever a “card-carrying member” of the Communist Party,
there is little doubt about his sympathies and support for the work of
the party. As Guthrie himself once said, “The best thing that I did in
1936 was to sign up with the Communist Party.”

Hitler was no more socialist than the German Democratic Republic was

Wrong , you merely demonstrate your lack of knowledge and abuse of
Godwin's law.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin%27s_law

"Godwin's law itself can be abused as a distraction, diversion or even
as censorship, fallaciously miscasting an opponent's argument as
hyperbole when the comparisons made by the argument are actually
appropriate.[10]

Similar criticisms of the "law" (or "at least the distorted version
which purports to prohibit all comparisons to German crimes") have
been made by Glenn Greenwald.[11]

Swing-State Voters Say They Are No Better Off Than in 2008

PRINCETON, NJ -- A majority of voters in key 2012 election swing states
say they are not better off than they were four years ago;

The results are similar for all U.S. registered voters, among whom 42%
say they are better off and 55% say they are not.

Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan famously asked Americans, in a 1980
presidential debate, if they were better off than four years ago.
Shortly thereafter, he decisively defeated incumbent Jimmy Carter in the
presidential election.

Let's try to take it slowly so that even you can comprehend.

When "George" posts about Nazi Germany, a response to that post is NOT

On the contrary, your own pitiful efforts are a classic example of the

It's bad enough that Republican clowns succeeded in sabotaging and
slowing down the recovery from the disastrous effects of eight years
of their maladministration, fraud and embezzlement of the American
public.

Did you really think Republican clowns were going to be allowed to
go on to destroy the whole country for their own personal political
advantage?


With 10 months left to run in the 111th Congress, Senate Republicans
have turned to the filibuster or threatened its use at a pace that
will more than triple old records.

Republicans setting filibuster record

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35643530/ns/politics-capitol_hill/t/analysis-republicans-setting-filibuster-record/

GOP senators are on pace to triple previous uses of procedural
obstruction

WASHINGTON — The filibuster — tool of obstruction in the U.S. Senate
— is alternately blamed and praised for wilting President Barack
Obama's ambitious agenda. Some even say it's made the nation
ungovernable.

Maybe, maybe not. Obama's term still has three years to run.

More certain, however: Opposition Republicans are using the delaying
tactic at a record-setting pace.

"The numbers are astonishing in this Congress," says Jim
Riddlesperger, political science professor at Texas Christian
University in Fort Worth.

The filibuster, using seemingly endless debate to block legislative
action, has become entrenched like a dandelion tap root in the midst
of the shrill partisanship gripping Washington.

The decade in politics In the 110th Congress of 2007-2008, there were
a record 112 cloture votes. In this session of Congress, the 111th —
for all of 2009 and the first two months of 2010 — the number already
exceeds 40.

The most the Democrats have ever use the filibuster was 58 times in
the 106th Congress of 1999-2000.

During most of Obama's first year in office and for a few weeks this
year, 58 Democratic senators and two Independents who normally vote
with them held a filibuster-proof 60-seat majority in the Senate.

That vanished last month when Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown
captured the seat of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy, who died last summer.

However, one of Brown's first votes after taking office saw him
joining four other Republicans to help Democrats break a threatened
filibuster by his party's leaders against a job bill.

The measure, $13 billion in tax incentives for businesses to hire
unemployed workers, was quickly passed the next day with 12
Republicans joining Brown and 55 Democrats in favor of it.

Filibusters to make the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress
look inept are one thing. Quite another is a vote against creating
jobs in an economy with nearly 10 percent unemployment and elections
nine months away.

You leftists are totalitarians.
The Republicans are preventing creation of approx. 2 million jobs (as
cited by the CBO) by delaying the Transportation bill, blocking bills
the American Jobs Act, Veterans Jobs Bill, INSourcing Jobs Act,
Construction, Infrastructure, Teachers/First Responders, threatening
to use the same obstructionist hostage taking tactics AGAIN to send
the U.S. over the cliff, and then the GOP gets on TV and radio ads and
tell bold-face LIES, and try to CON you into thinking Obama is at
fault, when IN FACT, the Republicans are at fault with their
despicable obstructionism and policies . . . .

Americans should be outraged and vote ALL Republicans out of office -
don’t reward them for their obstructionism, demise of the middle
class, jobs, etc, and BETRAYAL of Americans.

The GOP has adopted a scorched earth strategy - either they get their
agenda without compromise or they SINK this entire country. The GOP
sees the U.S. citizens economic RUIN as their way to be re-elected
with a Republican president in 2012 - they want our country to FAIL,
and this should make Americans determined to NEVER vote them back into
office . . .

Vote Democrat for President, Congress (House/Senate), Governor, etc. .
Re-elect Obama 2012!

Swing-State Voters Say They Are No Better Off Than in 2008

PRINCETON, NJ -- A majority of voters in key 2012 election swing states
say they are not better off than they were four years ago;

The results are similar for all U.S. registered voters, among whom 42%
say they are better off and 55% say they are not.

Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan famously asked Americans, in a 1980
presidential debate, if they were better off than four years ago.
Shortly thereafter, he decisively defeated incumbent Jimmy Carter in the
presidential election.

Redistribution is what is killing America.
I guess we can agree on that.

Corporate welfare and siphoning off the wealth created by American
workers and pumping it into secret Swiss, Panamanian and Cayman Island
bank accounts certainly doesn't help.


Speaking of not paying taxes & entitlement, how about the 26 Fortune
500 corporations that haven’t paid tax in 4 years?

http://www.eclectablog.com/2012/09/speaking-of-not-paying-taxes-entitlement-how-about-the-26-corporations-that-havent-paid-tax-in-4-years.html

September 18, 2012 in GOPocrisy, Lies, Mitt Romney

Say, Mitt, when will these guys take personal responsibility & care
about THEIR lives?

With Mitt Romney bloviating about how half the country are tax cheats
that feel “entitled” to things like food and healthcare and housing, I
got to thinking about who else in the USA doesn’t pay taxes. Then I
remembered a report by the Citizens for Tax Justice (pdf) that came
out earlier this year. It was a report that showed 26 Fortune 500
companies — PROFITABLE Fortune 500 companies, I should add — that paid
no taxes or actually got a rebate every year since 2008.

There they are on the right. Look at that list. General Electric.
Mattel. Corning. Con-way. Boeing. A plethora of energy companies.
Every one of them profitable and every one of them paying less than 0%
taxes in the years 2008-2011.

So, tell us, Mitt, how about it? When will these parasites on society
start caring about their lives and taking some damn personal
responsibility? I mean, they use a LOT of resources paid for by real
tax payers: Transportation and road systems. Police and fire
protection. Water and sewer systems. Tax breaks and so much more.

Surely you know some of the people that run these companies. You brag
endlessly about that. Chat ‘em up, will ya, Mitt? Ask them when they
are going to stop being dependent and acting so entitled about
everything.

And another thing: what about all those companies that got government
bailouts? Like Bain Capital, for example.

And what about all those monstrous banks that the taxpayers bailed
out? When are THEY going to start caring about THEIR lives and taking
personal responsibility? I have to believe you know the CEOs of these
companies, Mitt. Would you ring them up and ask them this question on
behalf of the US taxpayers who saved their asses when their whole
world was crumbling around them because they gambled with other
people’s money and created a catastrophic global recession?

Swing-State Voters Say They Are No Better Off Than in 2008

PRINCETON, NJ -- A majority of voters in key 2012 election swing states
say they are not better off than they were four years ago;

The results are similar for all U.S. registered voters, among whom 42%
say they are better off and 55% say they are not.

Presidential candidate Ronald Reagan famously asked Americans, in a 1980
presidential debate, if they were better off than four years ago.
Shortly thereafter, he decisively defeated incumbent Jimmy Carter in the
presidential election.

Not completely. They had many more elements of far Right thinking in their
philosophy than Socialist thinking. Their Party was called the National
Socialists. But that doesn't mean they were socialists across the board. No more

No. There is no master-servant relationship involved. There is no

Obama has screwed the middle class, lowering the household income by
more than $4,000:

"Obama Fails to Stem Middle-Class Slide He Blamed on Bush
By Mike Dorning - Apr 30, 2012

Barack Obama campaigned four years ago assailing President George W.
Bush for wage losses suffered by the middle class. More than three years
into Obama’s own presidency, those declines have only deepened.

The rebound from the worst recession since the 1930s has generated
relatively few of the moderately skilled jobs that once supported the
middle class, tightening the financial squeeze on many Americans, even
those who are employed.

“It started long before Obama, but he hasn’t done anything,” said John
Forsyth, 58, a railroad-car inspector and political independent from
Lebanon, Ohio. “He kept pushing this change, change, change, and he
hasn’t done anything.”

Underlying the erosion of the middle class, defined by some economists
as the middle 60 percent of income earners, are trends that stretch back
decades, including competition from lower-wage workers overseas and
technological advances that allow factories and offices to produce more
with less labor.

As a candidate in 2008, Obama blamed the reversals largely on the
policies of Bush and other Republicans. He cited census figures showing
that median income for working-age households -- those headed by someone
younger than 65 -- had dropped more than $2,000 after inflation during
the first seven years of Bush’s time in office.

Yet real median household income in March was down $4,300 since Obama
took office in January 2009 and down $2,900 since the June 2009 start of
the economic recovery, according to an analysis of census data by
Sentier Research, an economic- consulting firm in Annapolis, Maryland.
1% Get 93%

A president who attacked Bush’s policies for favoring the rich has
overseen a recovery in which the wealthiest 1 percent captured 93
percent of per-capita real income gains in 2010, according to an
analysis of tax data by Emmanuel Saez, an economics professor at the
University of California at Berkeley.

On average, families in the top 1 percent saw their inflation-adjusted
incomes rise by $105,637 that year from 2009, according to Saez.

While there is no settled definition of middle class, the middle 60
percent of households nationwide in 2010 earned between $20,000 and
$100,000, according to the U.S. Census."

Did anyone middle or lower class get better, under the years of Obama? Most
likely, a few groups such as welfare bums, and single parents got better.

Sentier Research, an economic- consulting firm in Annapolis, Maryland.
1% Get 93%

A president who attacked Bush’s policies for favoring the rich has
overseen a recovery in which the wealthiest 1 percent captured 93
percent of per-capita real income gains in 2010, according to an
analysis of tax data by Emmanuel Saez, an economics professor at the
University of California at Berkeley.

On average, families in the top 1 percent saw their inflation-adjusted
incomes rise by $105,637 that year from 2009, according to Saez.

While there is no settled definition of middle class, the middle 60
percent of households nationwide in 2010 earned between $20,000 and
$100,000, according to the U.S. Census."

Did anyone middle or lower class get better, under the years of Obama? Most
likely, a few groups such as welfare bums, and single parents got better.
Neither Middle Class or the poor got better - but the rich did -- and the
Repugs want to make things even better for the rich and worse for the poor.

These 18 Keynesian Banksters Looted The U.S. Public Treasury!
Posted on October 1, 2012 by Volubrjotr
Bernanke Secretly Gives away Sixteen Trillion Dollars

“The first ever GAO (Government Accountability Office) audit of the US
Federal Reserve was recently carried out due to the Ron Paul/Alan
Grayson Amendment to the Dodd-Frank bill passed in 2010. Jim DeMint, a
Republican Senator, and Bernie Sanders, an independent Senator, while
leading the charge for an audit in the Senate, watered down the original
language of house bill (HR1207) so that a complete audit would not be
carried out. Ben Bernanke, Alan Greenspan, and others, opposed the audit.

What the audit revealed was incredible: between December 2007 and June
2010, the Federal Reserve had secretly bailed out many of the world’s
banks, corporations, and governments by giving them
US$16,000,000,000,000.00 – that’s 16 TRILLION dollars.”

It gets worse, much worse, in fact it’s downright incestuous. Let’s do a
follow up and see who, besides foreign banks and corporations from
Scotland to South Korea, received a large chunk of that money.

* Banks like JP Morgan benefited from the foreign bailouts – they are
some of the largest creditors of the bailed out countries. Instead of
having to write off their foreign losses the US Federal Reserve bailouts
enabled them to be paid in full.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigates potential
conflicts of interest. The GAO did investigate the $16 trillion giveaway
and laid out the findings but did not name names. Those names have now
been released – here’s three of the more shocking cases…

“In Dimon’s (JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon)case, JPMorgan received some
$391 billion of the $4 trillion in emergency Fed funds at the same time
his bank was used by the Fed as a clearinghouse for emergency lending
programs. In March of 2008, the Fed provided JPMorgan with $29 billion
in financing to acquire Bear Stearns. Dimon also got the Fed to provide
JPMorgan Chase with an 18-month exemption from risk-based leverage and
capital requirements. And he convinced the Fed to take risky
mortgage-related assets off of Bear Stearns balance sheet before JP
Morgan Chase acquired the troubled investment bank.

Another high-profile conflict involved Stephen Friedman, the former
chairman of the New York Fed‘s board of directors. Late in 2008, the New
York Fed approved an application from Goldman Sachs to become a bank
holding company giving it access to cheap loans from the Federal
Reserve. During that period, Friedman sat on the Goldman Sachs board. He
also owned Goldman stock, something that was prohibited by Federal
Reserve conflict of interest regulations. Although it was not publicly
disclosed at the time, Friedman received a waiver from the Fed’s
conflict of interest rules in late 2008. Unbeknownst to the Fed,
Friedman continued to purchase shares in Goldman from November 2008
through January of 2009, according to the GAO.

In another case, General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt was a New York Fed
board member at the same time GE helped create a Commercial Paper
Funding Facility during the financial crisis. The Fed later provided $16
billion in financing to GE under this emergency lending program.” Fed
Board Member Conflicts Detailed by GAO, http://www.sanders.senate.gov/

Below is the full list of 18 Fed board members who gave their own banks
four trillion dollars:

Jamie Dimon, the Chairman and CEO of JP Morgan Chase, has served on
the Board of Directors at the Federal Reserve Bank of New Yorksince
2007. During the financial crisis, the Fed provided JP Morgan Chase with
$391 billion in total financial assistance. JP Morgan Chase was also
used by the Fed as a clearinghouse for the Fed’s emergency lending
programs.In March of 2008, the Fed provided JP Morgan Chase with $29
billion in financing to acquire Bear Stearns. During the financial
crisis, the Fed provided JP Morgan Chase with an 18-month exemption from
risk-based leverage and capital requirements. The Fed also agreed to
take risky mortgage-related assets off of Bear Stearns balance sheet
before JP Morgan Chase acquired this troubled investment bank.
“I just think this constant refrain, ‘bankers, bankers, bankers’ —
it’s just a really unproductive and unfair way of treating people.
People should just stop doing that.”Jamie Dimon

Obama & G.E.’s Immelt also owner of MSM

Jeffrey Immelt, the CEO of General Electric, served on the New York
Fed’s Board of Directors from 2006-2011. General Electric received $16
billion in low-interest financing from the Federal Reserve’s Commercial
Paper Funding Facility during this time period.

Stephen Friedman. In 2008, the New York Fed approved an application
from Goldman Sachs to become a bank holding company giving it access to
cheap Fed loans. During the same period, Friedman, who was chairman of
the New York Fed at the time, sat on the Goldman Sachs board of
directors and owned Goldman stock, something the Fed’s rules prohibited.
He received a waiver in late 2008 that was not made public (the Fed
provided conflict of interest waivers to employees and private
contractors so they could keep investments in the same financial
institutions and corporations that were given emergency loans). After
Friedman received the waiver, he continued to purchase stock in Goldman
from November 2008 through January of 2009 unbeknownst to the Fed,
according to the GAO.During the financial crisis, Goldman Sachs received
$814 billion in total financial assistance from the Fed.

“The Fed outsourced virtually all of the operations of their emergency
lending programs to private contractors like JP Morgan Chase, Morgan
Stanley, and Wells Fargo.

The same firms also received trillions of dollars in Fed loans at
near-zero interest rates. Altogether some two-thirds of the contracts
that the Fed awarded to manage its emergency lending programs were
no-bid contracts.

Morgan Stanley was given the largest no-bid contract worth $108.4
million to help manage the Fed bailout of AIG.” Mises.ca

“The Banksters are caught in a “Short Position” With Silver in the
$34.00/Ounce Range. As of September 21st, 2012, they sold “derivative
paper” into The COMEX aka; Auction House For Precious Metals to keep
Silver in the $34/ounce range. The derivative paper silver “derived” it
value from un-mined silver still in the ground, which of course is a crime.

This was all done to scare the market place into selling “REAL TANGIBLE
SILVER” so they could buy it from you and I to replace their previous
“derivative paper silver” that they sold to the COMEX to drive the price
of silver down from $50 last year etc etc etc etc.

The PUMP/DUMP game works like this:

1) They PUMP the price of silver up by closing mines and/or hoarding
silver until it is in very short supply.

2) Price goes up.

3) For example, when silver hits $50/Ounce, they illegally sell “paper
silver” to The Comex promising to replace the “paper silver” in [lets
say 6 months or when they can drive the price of silver down to
$10/ounce] with the “real marketed silver like silver coins, bars etc”

4) By selling “paper silver” back to The Comex at $50/Ounce the market
starts to see a “surplus” of silver and the price/ounce starts to go
down. This causes doubt in the minds of other investors and they start
to sell their real silver back to The Comex. This begins a snowball
effect and the price begins to fall more and more. When it gets about as
low as they can get it – they start buying silver and replace their
‘paper silver’ with the same amount of ounces they bought at lets say
$10/ounce. So they made $50.00/ounce when they sold to the market place
with ‘fake silver’ and then they replaced the ‘fake paper silver’ with
$10.00/ounce real silver and thus made $40.00/ounce profit. Not too bad
for cronies-eh? You see, WE do not get to deal with a real ‘demand &
supply’ fair market ~ it is THEY who hoard & abscond the Capitalist System.

5) But now people have rally awakened to this scheme and are holding
onto their real silver because there is very little ‘real silver’ above
ground and most silver mine have closed because the cost to bring the
metal into the market place is now ‘cost prohibitive’.

6) The banksters will either have to replace the ‘paper silver’ with
‘real silver’ or buy back the ‘paper derivative silver notes’ with their
own money.

7) The breaking point aka; short price has now been defined as well as
possible at approximately $34/ounce.

8) When industry starts screaming for the ‘real silver’ for their
products etc., the price will sky rocket. Further, real silver is a
powerful hedge against the value of the falling dollar. Dollar continues
to fall but silver will climb.” ~ Volubrjotr

Conclusion

The financial sector parasites, the banksters and their political
puppets, that have historically fed on our society have never been so
brazen. The looting of the public treasury is very much in the open – if
anyone cares to look – and done with impunity.

This is all happening because our elected politicians do not work for
the people, our elected leaders have stuck their snouts deep in the
trough of power and self indulgence, representative democracy has been
co-opted by big-moneyed interests and political parties represent their
establishment not the people’s interests.

“The lending suites that were set up for months and years, beyond the
initial crisis point, were focused on how to keep banks profitable, not
just how to keep them alive. The banks were able to access emergency
lending facilities, or change themselves into bank holding companies
overnight, to borrow at next to nothing, and if they chose, lend back to
the government at a tidy profit. You didn’t have to think at all to make
money. And you didn’t have to worry about that toxic balance sheet,
because the government was going to help you grow your way out of it.
They will also facilitate mergers to help decimate your competition. The
money that the banks borrowed for nothing could have just as easily gone
to underwater homeowners. There’s nothing special about the banks except
that they know the Fed policymakers personally.” David Dayen,
firedoglake.com

Fed loans at near-zero interest rates, incestuous bailouts, secret
waivers, no-bid contracts, and a failed representative democracy should
be on all our radar screens. Are they on yours?

Guthrie was a fucking commie. You know it.
If you talk to people that were alive during the Depression -- there's fewer and fewer of them around -- you discover that, surprisingly, a lot of them were communists. Capitalism had, as they saw it, failed. And then, we went to war with the Fascists and the communists were our allies.

The idea of the Big Bad Commie didn't really happen till later.

Just trying to keep some sanity in the discussion, is all. Carry on.

YOU are a fucking commie just like baxturd, you traitor to America!


http://www.city-journal.org/html/15_3_urbanities-communist.html

Both songs owed much to Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land,” his 1940
response to Irving Berlin’s straightforwardly patriotic “God Bless
America.” Guthrie’s proclamation that “this land is made for you and me”
contained an accusation that an unjust social system was robbing the
country’s rightful owners—an accusation that a couple of verses made
quite directly:

As I went walking, I saw a sign there,
And on the sign there, it said, “No Trespassing.”
But on the other side it didn’t say nothing,
That side was made for you and me.
In the squares of the city, in the shadow of a steeple,
By the relief office I seen my people;
As they stood there hungry, I stood there asking
Is this land made for you and me?

The annual Woody Guthrie Award ceremony, recognizing singers “who
exemplify Woody Guthrie’s social activism and personal commitment to the
visions and hopes of people,” takes place at the Waldorf-Astoria, for
instance. What Howe and Coser wrote in 1957 remains true: “Between the
‘progressive’ sentiments of Popular Front politics, and a certain kind
of urban middle-brow cultural yearning, there was a deep rapport—most of
all, a common anxiety and pathos—which the Communists brilliantly
exploited. . . . Even after the Popular Front lay shattered . . . the
style of American mass culture retained many of its crucial elements.”

Actually, yes, there is such a "doubt". Wages are stagnant since the seventies, while the CEO take is up by decimal places. An argument can be made that wages were too high before, increased by union extortion and so forth -- but that's a ludicrous argument only made by stupid people, or evil people that stupid people follow.

That's a huge part of why wages were too high, but it does nothing to
