Tell that to the full-time workers toiling away for wages so low they qualify for SNAP (foodstamps). Only folks getting rich in that equation are the factory owners.

SNAP eligibility takes into consideration a person’s income, expenses, and other non-financial things such as age, student status, and immigration status. There is not one single guideline that determines a person’s eligibility for SNAP.
reply

Federal SNAP eligibility is based solely on income and number of dependents. Perhaps your state takes other factors into consideration for the distribution of state benefits?

Nevertheless, you realize the factory owners are essentially the real beneficiaries of a government handout; their substandard wages are subsidized by taxpayers (like you), allowing them to pay their workers less and earn more for themselves.
reply

In which case, that's a problem with the government for subsidizing the company. And you want this same government to be in charge of equal distribution?

As I suspected, the website from which you are quoting your information is particular to Massachusetts programs, a state known to kick in a good deal of it's own money to increase the assistance provided by federal programs. Try looking here:

https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/eligibility

for federal guidelines, which are based solely on income and dependents, with some exclusions for households with large asset bases but low income.

The arguement here is not against capitalism, but specific patent laws. He was allowed to buy a patent on a product that he did not create.
Also, he only bought the patent on the latest version. If the medical establishment allowed slightly older (and working) models of the epi-pen to be sold, he would not be able to extort money.
Also his "moral justification" for upping the price was that consumers wouldn't be paying for it, insurance companies would. In other words, he bought the liberal bullshit that we can somehow force corporations to pay for stuff, but it won't affect others.

it's linked to capitalism because it's linked to the private ownership of something on which you shouldn't be able to speculate on... if it were socially owned...

It's about self-interest vs. public interest...

That not how it works. It works by transferring money from the rich to the working and middle class.

You give people a very fine incentive to work to better themselves; if they work hard and become successful, someday they can be in the wonderful position of having their money taken from them to give to people who didn't earn it.

Socialism and charity are NOT the same!!! Jesus NEVER advocated taking others money without their permision (that is theft). He advocated giving your own money VOLUNTARILY.
Stop with the "Jesus was a Socialist crap" and the "Sharing is Socialism" crap. It is the Government cooersion that people object to.

Note: I recognize some taxes are necessary. And that the exact balance and needs are constantly debated.

Am I supposed to feel entitled to her money because my parents weren't rich and hers were?
reply

well, I'm sure her parents got rich because they were really intelligent but also because they could have healthy, educated workers, roads, public services, police, ... Not sure Hilton Hotels would have had such succes in Somalia.

So we've gone from talking about a first-world heiress to a third-world economy? How is the one correlated with the other?

The fact that there are people suffering around the world doesn't change the fact that that woman's money belongs to her, not everyone else. Possession is not determined based on need.
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
there is no correlation that's what i'm saying... Her success was possible in the US because there's a specific context. Her dad is not a self-made man, that's what I'm saying, because they have to rely on other people.... it's a team effort...

Taking other people's money doesn't make you a self made man either. It's stealing via government force. Otherwise known as tyranny. BTW, prove that he wasn't a self made man. If you can't then your wrong and simply trying to rewrite history
reply
3 ups, 1 reply
Government force is not always tyranny (e.g. the police...) I guess the difference is justice. what standards a specific country has regarding the concept of justice can be different.

I'm saying nobody is a self made man since you always need to rely on a specific context, people... And what taxes pay for, is enabling for companies.

Study US history. The removal of freedoms or free will by the government has always been considered tyranny. I'm a self made man. The government hasn't given me anything. I earned everything I have.
reply
0 ups, 1 reply
Well you think you're a self made man but
-who built the roads which enable you to go and earn what you have?
-who pays the judges that assure you have equal rights and competition is fair?
-who pays the police that makes sure you don't get robbed what you own?
-where did you learn to read and write so that you can do your job?

Would you have earned what you have in a country with a corrupt government and no public infrastructures?
reply

Infrastructure was built by private companies and paid for by taxpayers at the request of the people. The government didn't build it and they don't own it. The infrastructure is owned and paid for by hardworking Americans and politicians exist to represent us not control us. The government doesn't give us anything. We pay for it. Our government is corrupt. What country doesn't have an infrastructure?completely Irrational argument.
0 ups
Well, ok, the members of the government didn't come at your front door to build the road, I agree. But as you say it, at the request of people (the taxpayers) the government bought the services of private companies. This is a socialized investment, quite far from tyranny. And yes the road is publicly owned instead of privately owned. Of course the government doesn't give you anything, it's the people giving to the people.

Of course I exagerated with "no" public infrastructure, I should have said "significantly less" infrastructure. In some countries, in some areas, there is no police, no roads etc...

My point being, what you can do what you do today business-wise, is linked to the level of services and infrastructure provided by your country (government+administration+taxpayers...), thus self-made men don't really exist.

As for the corruption of US government, the fact that you can say that your government is corrupt without being imprisoned show that there are different levels of corruption in different countries...

I think it's the result of people investing in businesses that were successful and paid off. The result of hard work, risk and some luck. In America there's nothing stopping any of us from trying to do the same thing. Doesn't mean we'll be successful though.

You can't invest in anything if you don't have money in the first place or if the bank won't take the risk...

So yeah, what stopping you from doing the same is your birth... Paris Hilton can take "risks" and still live tomorrow. Most people can't...
