Billionaire has spilled the beans on the 1%'s dirty little secret.

Billionaire has spilled the beans on the 1%'s dirty little secret.
The rich are not job creators,

I AM A JOB CREATOR!
I once wrote a brief summary on how my family helped create jobs, for an on-line petition. I can't remember the petition but I've located the word doc that I created with my 2 cents worth:

---
“Congress keeps mum on how jobs can be created; they seem to be telling us with their silence that, THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO CREATE JOBS. How strange is that, when my family has created jobs by repairing our infrastructure… i.e. NEW ROOF (the old one was shot and leaked) NEW SEPTIC TANK (the old one cracked and became a health hazard) NEW WATER PUMP (the old one quit working and we were without water) not to mention, washing machine, air-conditioner, hot water tank, and ALL AROUND HANDYMAN repairs. Congress can’t create jobs, but my "low income" household can, WHAT GIVES?”

It goes without saying how we, the 99 % buy gasoline that keep BIG OIL filthy rich with profits; Purchasing food and umpteen other needs that make those who payout dues to ALEC, wealthy beyond their dreams. {{{American Legislative Exchange Council}}} (www.justice.org/alec)
And, I can't begin to express how much of our hard earned LOW WAGES goes out to Big Pharma, Big Medicine and Big Insurance... Oh, and let us not forget the $$$, we shell over to Big Education making DEBT the real lifelong college career.)
Yes indeed, we are the JOB CREATORS and each and every one of us should thank one another for keeping this country running. (Yet The Corporate Personhood will step on our face every chance they get, TELLING US, IT'S OUR OWN DAMN FAULT BECAUSE WE ARE THE CAUSE OF THE PAIN WE FEEL.)
It's enough to make us SCREAM a collective “UNCLE”!
UPDATE: The above statements are all true and we the 99% have been clamoring the inequities from THE TOP OF MOUNTAINS and until now, our Uproars have fallen on deaf ears.
The 1% corporate personhood have made this country's income inequities a business where only the VERY WEALTHY reap any rewards. Not only that, they have convinced many of the populous, that only they, know what's best for we hoi polloi.
They call themselves JOB CREATORES and it doesn't matter who proves them wrong because Fox Fake News comes to the rescue and convinces their loyal viewers it's all a LIBERAL PLOT to take down our country.
Please sit back and listen to ONE OF THEM, one of the ONE PERCENTERS TELL IT LIKE IT REALLY IS.
Mr. Nick Hanauer, please tell me sweetheart, WHY DID IT TAKE YOU SO LONG???

The liberal ideal is that everyone should have fair access and fair opportunity. This is not equality of result. It's equality of opportunity. There's a fundamental difference. ~~Robert Reich~~
Equality of outcome, equality of condition, or equality of results is a controversial political concept. Although it is not always clearly defined, it is usually taken to describe a state in which people have approximately the same material wealth or, more generally, in which the general conditions of their lives are similar. Achieving this requires reducing or eliminating material
inequalities between individuals or households in a society. This could involve a transfer of income and/or wealth from wealthier to poorer individuals, or adopting other institutions designed to promote equality of condition from the start. The concept is central to some political ideologies and is used regularly in political discourse, often in contrast to the term equality of opportunity. A related way of defining equality of outcome is to think of it as "equality in the
central and valuable things in life."
Equal Opportunity, sometimes known as Equality of opportunity, is a term which has differing definitions and there is no consensus as to the precise meaning. In the classical sense, equality of opportunity is closely aligned with the concept of equality before the law, and ideas of meritocracy.
Equality of opportunity is in philosophical contrast against the concept of equality of outcome.
Examples:
Some use it as a descriptive term for an approach intended to provide a certain social environment in which people are not excluded from the activities of society, such as education, employment, or health care, on the basis of immutable traits. Unfair opportunity practices include measures taken by an organization to ensure fairness in the employment process. A basic definition of equality is the idea of equal treatment and respect.
In job advertisements and descriptions, the fact that the employer is an equal opportunity employer is sometimes indicated by the abbreviations EOE or MFDV which stands for Minority, Female, Disabled, Veteran.
------------------
Equal opportunity 1) n. a right supposedly guaranteed by both federal and many state laws against any discrimination in employment, education, housing or credit rights due to a person's race, color, sex (or sometimes sexual orientation), religion, national origin, age or handicap. A person who believes he/she has not been granted equal opportunity or has been outright sexually harassed or discriminated against may bring a lawsuit under federal and most state laws, or file a complaint with the federal Equal Opportunity Employment Commission or a state equal opportunity agency.
2) adj. a term applied to employers, lenders and landlords, who advertise that they are "equal opportunity employers," subtly suggesting all others are not, even though they are required by law to be so. (See: affirmative action)
