rfaramir - I feel like I hardly have time to join the OWS crowd in pointing out that there is foul play contributing to the widening gap between the rich and the poor, I spend so much time trying to point out that the most prevalent (and obvious) methods of narrowing the gap will make the country a far sight worse off.

We ought to stop government from giving money (including tax credits) to corporations and wealthy people, including farmers, end subsidies and tariffs, strip government of the power to do those things in the future, and let everyone seeking to make a profit fend for himself. OWS types, from what I can tell, have given up on that, and just want clawbacks. It's like trying to get a $2,000 bonus that will bankrupt your employer when you should be getting tools to be more productive and earning a $200/week raise. Very shortsighted and destructive.

How are you doing at convincing the right?
