“…will make you cry.”
I always say “Don’t mourn, organize!”
Oh yes. It does take quite a few more than 999 of me to match his earnings.
@Mujokan Well played!
Except for some speaking work and royalties, which amount to “not very much,” Mitt Romney doesn’t EARN anything.
He collects dividends and interest on his couple-hundred-million-dollar stock and bond portfolio.
Dividends which are taxed at a very low rate, compared to those of use who actually produce goods and services.
I understand the rationale behind the lower capital gains and dividends rate . . . but really, it has had its chance. The whole trickle down theory is a bust. It grew the economy alright, but also resulted in both a dangerous concentration of wealth, and a boom and bust cycle as “stupid” money in the hands of financiers went looking for quick bucks.
I agree. It will be so much better when we have an egalitarian society like Cuba or North Korea…
What a ludicrous straw-man argument.
Yeah, sure, that’s the only other possible alternative.
I don’t think that word means what you think it means.
I’m uncomfortable with the implicit value judgement in this post’s use of the word “earn”. Is there any chance you could replace it with something more neutral? “Leech”, for example.
Are you implying that it takes no effort to destroy jobs and strip companies bare?
well, that puts me well below the average boingboing reader…
My income: 0 (long-term unemployed)
“In 2010, Mitt Romney made $0 in 0 seconds.
It would take you Infinity years NaN seconds to make what Mitt made in 2010. “
Derp! Trust the programers not to have even considered the /zero error…
if you’re the average Boing Boing reader, this presidential candidate earns your entire year’s salary in a couple days
Man, the average BoingBoing reader makes about $120,000?
Shit, I guess you all are just pretending to be on for hours every day, and instead you have your secretaries log in to make witty comments…
People who have secretaries generally spend the day socializing while the secretaries do all the work.
Just a bit over 9 hours. Cripes….
