"We" wonder why people aren't spending money & there's slow job growth.

((Yes, let's. In fact, we could even dispense with demands for answers to a hypothetical situation. ))

I don't think my question was unreasonable. The original poster and others were upset that the rich were getting richer. One poster mentioned that her husband was fair with his employees and gave them a fair bonus when the company could afford to do so, but she also said she didn't trust other companies, and thought that many were not fair.

So, I asked the simple question of do they support the government getting involved to help with the income inequality that they are all so seemingly upset about. Not a single person answered or came up with any sort of plan or idea how to address the very problem that they are upset about.

I find that interesting that they are more concerned about where I spend my summers and what time I am up in the morning. Then I am accused of lying and being somebody who has been banned. Clearly, the MO here is when you can no longer debate, then be disruptive and start baiting.

Therefore, I no longer wish to debate on this thread. Sorry, it's just too hostile for me.

I never claimed she said "all" companies besides her husband's were unfair.

((Do you disagree that some are?))

No, I do not disagree that some businesses are unfair.

Do you disagree that that some businesses are fair?

This is what you previously wrote:

Funny how those small business owners like your husband feel that THEY do a good job with their employees but NOBOBY else does.

Perhaps you missed my answer since you didn't acknowledge that I answered your question.

<<< Unless its contractual, those kind of "agreements"...not promises...are always predicated on how well the company is doing. >>>

No, not always. A promise is a promise. Nothing was stated about how well, or bad, the company would be doing in a year. He wanted my friend's expertise and made a promise he should have kept, whatever it took.

I was taught growing up that a man (or woman) is only as good as their word.

I guess some people don't feel the same way.

Ummmmm.... that poster was me. I know what I wrote. I also know that you are paraphrasing my words and have become incensed when others did the same with your words. Pick a standard and apply it equally and evenly or you will lose even more credibility.

No, your question was not whether government should help find ways to reduce income inequality. What you asked is this (verbatim): "Does your DH want the government telling him how much money he is "allowed" to make? Does he want the government telling him how much of a bonus he should pay his employees based on his profit? Or should that be best left to the owner of the company to decide? " Let's stick to the facts of what was written, OK?

It was a classic straw man setup. And many of us simply didn't take the bait, so please spare us the "Not a single person answered or came up with any sort of plan or idea how to address the very problem that they are upset about."

I don't relish efforts at manipulation. Nor do I care for people who act as though they're innocent victims when their actions and words show provocation and deception.

This is a news debate board - not strictly a political debate board. We also have 'lite news', 'women's', etc.

Locally, kids started getting out a couple of weeks ago, but the Seattle schools get out today. It's a wide range even in-state. Why would you, or anyone else, assume that libraone's question was anything but friendly?
