Your view of the market is shallow and you have no idea how economics work. The gap between the rich and the poor is being perpetuated by government, not the rich or left (though the Left helps a lot) or right. You want the poor to come out of poverty? Deregulate the market and lower taxes and unnecessary spending. The only rich people you should blame are in the government.

There are some inaccuracies in this comic.

1. The poor man is fishing.
2. The rich man is fishing.
3. There is no middle class.

For this comic to be accurate-
1. There would be many skilled middle class fishermen selling their fish to a few rich people.
2. These few rich would then turn and sell the fish they just bought to the poor, who are poor because they lack the skill to fish and spend what little money they have buying it from someone else.

The rich people pay proportionality more taxes, for stuff like welfare and other bullcrap, so really this gif is BS.

No, the poor one should be the one stealing the rich man's fish. It's called Welfare.

You do realize the rich people you are depicting aren't the ones who own the oil companies or other large businesses. No I won't call them saints, they do do bad stuff in the name of money but you should look at people like Obama, Nancy pelosi, and other politicians who pull in millions from being professional politicians. They just passed a law allowing inside trading. Which you must realize allows them and wall street to make deals using insider information. Which if you didn't know is what causes depressions because they get a tip that something is failing before everyone else and all of them buy out and all us regular folks lose our pensions and 401ks

Someone should tell that poor guy there's a whole basket of **** behind him.
It appears the 99%'s biggest problem is that they keep looking forward.

It's funny how the OP conspicuously left out any mention of the immoral government stealing from them both.

Consider it a non economic viewpoint. Our economy should first take care of human needs

I see a lot of people complaining about welfare.
But so few about the lack of accessible, well paying jobs.

I mean, I think every single person can agree that the 19.7 Million children living on welfare doesn't need to increase.
And there should be less than 46 million people, living in poverty. (In the US)
Of which 72% are employed.

One's circumstance is not one's own fault, and responsibility for it needs to be taken. But goddamn it. There's a ******* you cannot control and what you can certainly isn't enough to compensate.

I think it's the other way around. Wellfare, social security, unemployment, etc...

this isn't accurate. the guy on the left is clearly vintage, which as we all know costs a lot of money at Urban Outfitters or fake thrift stores.

obviously the guy on the left is richer, just look at that sepia-tone hat, scraggly stubble and tight jeans.

Its all about convincing the feeble minded and their offspring they need your service or product. Do that and you wont have to "fish money" from the poor like the picture above because they will give it to you.

it's actually the other way around
#1 - anonymous (05/07/2013) [-]
