Gee, only half? It's nowhere near enough. Fast track TPP faster.

Is it soup yet?

Seriously, what will it take, sheeple?

3. Recently, some maroon on TV remarked that
the statistic of the richest 85 people being richer than the poorest 3.5 billion wasn't meaningful because the poorest 3.5 billion didn't own much. In fact, many of them had zero or less than zer0 (meaning all they had was debt).


Yes, jackhole, that bit of info really does invalidate Oxfam's statistic. :sarcasm:

4. I heard that too.
These assholes can explain away anything. Ever notice that? If Hitler was gassing the Jews I'm sure they would find an excuse.
