Here's a simple little exercise in numbers.

Huh. Rather than respond to points, you choose to call them "nonsense", "cop-outs", "baloney"; and admonish us to open our eyes. In reasoned debate, none of those tactics would be acceptable responses.

We may not need to wait that long.

Right now, I don't have a high enough speed on internet access to stream video. So I cannot watch the YouTube link and appreciate your "OWS at it's [sic] best" comment.

people have different earnings based on:

Who they know

The color of their skin

Their gender

Their height

Their weight

Their attractiveness

[amongst others}

But the "value" of what they do? Nah, I don't buy it. In an idyllic world maybe.

Pick me up off the floor. I think we found something we agree on?

Education does not correlate to higher pay and more valued work.

Yes? We agree?

I cannot speak for Songwright.

Huh? What does this have to do with this debate? College education does not ensure a higher salary than a high school dropout. It doesn't even guarantee a job...

Maybe that's because people have different earnings based on the value of what they do!
