“Why not legislate the ratio? It should not be more than 50 to 1. Force them to cut pay at the top, raise pay at the bottom, or ideally do both. They can make as much as they can, but they have to bring the entire company labor force with them. - And no exceptions for contractors or off-shore labor! Those count as well, that would stop jobs going overseas to cheap labor if it meant CEO's could only make 50 times that lowest worker's wage.”

“Do the same for elected officials. They get paid the median wage. If they want to make more, they have to make sure everyone is getting more!”

“Baike: Right on the money!!!! The bottom wage should be a liveable wage and the highest wage should be regulated to avoid the accumulation of massive wealth. These two steps would create a powerful middle class which leads to a powerful economy.”
“Cops shoot dogs. It is their default behavior. They see a dog, they shoot it. They always consider themselves justified. They don't even concern themselves with the consequences, because they think they are doing the right thing and even if they're wrong, they believe they are immune from prosecution. They need to lose their gun, badge, job, and go to JAIL.”
“Fear. Fear of the unknown creates anxiety. Belief in the supernatural provides an answer to the unknown, that answer eliminates the anxiety caused by not knowning. That is the power of belief. It is a hard wired coping mechanism for dealing with the anxieties of not comprehending the complexities of the natural world. In evolutionary terms, as human cognition grew, people became more aware of nature, but lacked the knowlegde to understand it, this created anxiety and the individuals who were better able to cope with that anxiety had an advantage over those who did not and could be more prosperous, thus supernatural beliefs being "intuitive" and persisting in modern humans can be explained as a result of evolutionary processes.”
“Very off article. Not even close to true about what men think. And men absolutely realize how insecure women are. Its what makes us miserable. Constant requests for affirmation, validation, and support for coping with insecurities are the 8th layer of hell. Here's a tip, take responsiblilty for your own well being. If you look to a man as your coping system, you are both doomed to misery.”
“Evolution is not about how life started. Evolution describes the processes by which life changes over time. Anyone who breeds dogs, ranches cattle or sheep, or farms knows its true. Darwin's famous book describes the origin of species, it does not describe the origin of life. Until you fully understand the concept you are arguing against, you will not sway anyone with your arguments.”

“That in fact is my point....
