    Default Hail the rich

    Read a collumn written by a feminist professor that naturally works at the university of Amsterdam. Her outlook was rather, well let's just call it 'university of Amsterdamistic', nothing good ever came from these FARC-recruiters except their beta's who must feell like Alice in Wonderland.What amazed me is how she wanted to raise property taxes and income-taxes even more. Hellooooooo these people are already pulling the wagon dead weight included. They work 70 hours a week, never really have a day off they wear their lack of time in their pockets called cellphones. What in their left mind do 36 hour at max have asking them for even more? It's a whole different mentality, you just don't have the right to feed upon these 70 hours, money is relative to spending time no?

    You are aware that the CEO earns slighty more than that are you?

    Try 650 hour weeks... And that's not counting extra grants, or the US CEO gets to work 9000 hours a week.

    Yes a CEO is more important and usually works more than the average worker, but the salary difference can easily become ludicriously large.
    We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled. But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?

    So what? The guy who packages toothpaste didn't invent it, but somehow he just got to have his share because he puts it in boxes

    The guy who invented it (aka an engineer) usually get 2-3 times more than the worker.

    Most money goes to the parasites anyway, you have a much too romantic view on rich persons. Not all of them are parasites, but a great deal of them are.

    The money I'd need to be paid to work 50, or 60 or 70 etc hours a week goes up almost exponentially as my time to "live" is eroded (finally to even sleep). And I mean the money I get not the money that gets taxed - so for me to do 10 more hours a week would be a load more money as I'd loose about 45% straight away.

    There is rarely one engineer who has an amazing idea. There are some entrepreneurs but most R&D is done by a massive company and everyone is a wage slave doing their bit, and can be replaced in an instant. CEOs et al supposedly offer something that can't be (although often this is not the case).

    An enemy that wishes to die for their country is the best sort to face - you both have the same aim in mind.

    Why so blackmail? I guess blackmail can't be taxed as well then

    It isn't exactly a secret that the Dutch royal family are the founders of the Bildenberg-group, wiki would do fine. But if you want more aluhead, why don't you ask Beatrix van Amsberg why operation Market Garden exactly failed, I mean they were just waiting for them. Pretty simple, Bernard Lippe was a nazi spy who tipped the Germans of.
