Wealth Inequality in America

yeah, its pointless arguing with someone that believes self serving government statistics are "scientific method" and rejects real world experience over numbers that have been doctored to keep the cash flowing

you're so willfully ignorant that its not amazing that you have to come onto a message board to espouse these views since no one in real life will listen to you suck

i was wondering how long it would take for you to call relevant data the product of a vast conspiracy

what other science do you believe to be a conspiracy? global warming? evolution? plate tectonics?

it's amazing how people like you will place your lives in the hands of science when it benefits you while wildly denying any of its results that don't fit your broken ideology and dumb gut feelings. the idea that the government has a vested interest in manipulating data to draw attention to our horribly broken system is fuging laughable and (surprise!) unsubstantiated. i'm noticing a trend here. you know i've seen you use plenty of dumb 4chan poo to deride the religious around here but i fail to see the difference between their belief in a benevolent god and your belief in just-world hypothesis bullshit. it's funny how their god is silly and there's just no proof, but your god is totes legit u guys

maybe willfully ignorant was too strong in terms. perhaps you're just naive.

of course a government agency has never, in the history of mankind, ever doctored or fabricated information to serve its own ends, especially not our own, wonderful, flawless government from which all our liberties and securities flow from

because ultimately none of us are responsible for the decisions we make, we're all just rats in a maze producing black and white results

you see the government wants everyone to know that social mobility is poo, income equality is comparable to that of big bad china, that minorities are still marginalized in virtually every aspect of life, et al because: uhhhh idk my big libertarian brain hasn't actually thought this part out yet. hmm let's see the same government responsible for the overthrow of multiple democratically elected, left-of-center governments purely for private interests and worldwide influence, is for some reason comprised of secret communists hell bent on stirring up class warfare because: uhhhh idk my big libertarian brain hasn't really considered this part either

anyway, the moral of the story is that you're a sheep if you ask too many questions about my rock solid argument

I'm just skimming the thread, but do you have data that contradicts the data you're taking issue with? If not you're just using an ad hominem fallacy to attack the source without providing any relevant info yourself.

just because your 12 century english poetry major isn't worth poo doesn't mean social mobility is poo. your "rock solid argument" is entirely based upon the way you perceive injustices in the world.

just because everything isn't handed out for free here like in the socialist utopias that are crumbling around the world under the weight of government excesses, wastes, and frauds doesn't mean there's no social mobility. i would argue there's less of a caste here than almost any country in the world.

in fact, capitalism has moved more people out of poverty and created more opportunity for individuals, even minorities, than any other system in the world.

no, you're a sheep because you believe things that you haven't or cannot verify for yourself personally and go around spouting it like its gospel.

i mean, the bible was written. i guess that means its 100% true. hell. the quran is a political document in some countries. guess that verifies it as "rock solid"

you're either naive or just spouting some self-serving diatribe. do you work in a branch of the public sector that depends on handouts or something?

you mean about the percentage of people that are intentionally deceitful with the intent to get as much for free without working?

oh wait, that only applies to people that work for their money.

in other words, "no but that's not going to stop me from posting about it anyway"
