This is privilege.

Privilege is wearing $200 sneakers when you've never had a job.
Privilege is wearing $300 beats headphones while living on public assistance.
Privilege is having a smart phone with a data plan you receive no bill for.
Privilege is living in public subsidized housing, where you don't have a water bill, where rising property taxes and rents and energy costs have no effect at all on the amount of food you can put on the table.
Privilege is the ability to go out and march against, and protest anything that triggers you, without worrying about calling out at work, and the consequences that accompany such behavior
Privilege is having as many children as you want, regardless of your employment status and be able to send them off to daycare and public school you don't pay for.

Never having the opportunity to have a job is privilege? Being obliged to rely on public assistance is privilege? You know that the vast majority of taxes are paid by people who don’t work, who exploit the working class in part by creating systemic unemployment and poverty, right?

Hint: if someone doesn't work they have NO income to pay income taxes on

And? The bottom 90% pay 28%. Anybody can Google. Point of the story is 90% of the country pay dick. Don't pretend otherwise
Right. And the bottom 90% are the working people. Which was my point. Very little of the taxes are paid by people who work for a living and have incomes under $185,000 per year. They are mostly paid by people who have on average $1.21 in investment income for every $1 from labor income.

I guess we are agreed then. The vast majority of taxes are paid by people who have income and work for a living, thereby subsidizing the other 90%.

No. People who invest for a living in lieu of working. Relying on the labor of others to produce the return on their investments.

Nope not in the slightest. They did work for a living, they saved a lot as a result of their hard work, didn't covet the monies of others, and then found themselves with some extra money which they chose to invest, which is their right.

Just because your labor produces jack shit, doesn't mean that their labor and what they earned is wrong. Simple as that

By the way I've been meaning to ask, do you get a tax refund? I think I asked you once before

That’s not true. The rich rely almost exclusively on what is known as “unearned income” because it is not supplied by their work.
Do you object to people who win the state mega lottery? How about pro gamblers who make millions? You envy them their winnings? No difference to the Rothchilds really. Why does that fvck you communists up that they don't "work"?

What other lucky bastards do you commies envy?

The bottom half of personal income tax filers pay no income tax. Many of them get paid in excess of what they put in. In other words they are subisidized by those people paying taxes.
