Greed


intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.

Greed, or avarice, is an inordinate or insatiable longing for material gain, be it food, money, status, or power.

As a secular psychological concept, greed is an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs. The degree of inordinance is related to the inability to control the reformulation of "wants" once desired "needs" are eliminated. Erich Fromm described greed as "a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction." It is typically used to criticize those who seek excessive material wealth, although it may apply to the need to feel more excessively moral, social, or otherwise better than someone else.

The purpose for greed, and any actions associated with it, is possibly to deprive others of potential means (perhaps, of basic survival and comfort) or future opportunities accordingly, or to obstruct them therefrom, thus insidious and tyrannical or otherwise having a negative connotation. Alternately, the purpose could be defense or counteraction from such dangerous, potential negotiation in matters of questionable agreeability. A consequence of greedy activity may be an inability to sustain any of the costs or burdens associated with that which has been or is being accumulated, leading to a backfire or destruction, whether of self or more generally. So, the level of "inordinance" of greed pertains to the amount of vanity, malice or burden associated with it.

Whether it's paying Amazon $3 billion to move to New York or giving American corporations a trillion-dollar tax cut, trickle-down economics doesn't work. The better way to grow the economy is from the bottom up, by investing in our people -- their education and skills, their health, and the infrastructure the links them together.

Every time Democrats have a popular and effective proposal on the table Republicans call it "socialist." They called Franklin D. Rooselvelt a "socialist" for passing Social Security. They called Lyndon Johnson a "socialist" for passing Medicare. It's the same tactic they've been using for at least 80 years.

More conflicts of interests inside the White House. Kushner Companies is seeking a $[sign in to see URL] billion loan from federally-owned mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to purchase apartments in Maryland and Virginia. It could be one of the biggest deals in the history of the company.

Meanwhile, Jared Kushner still serves as a key advisor to Trump, holding tremendous sway in Washington. But he has retained control over the vast majority of his interest in Kushner Companies, worth as much as $761 million, according to government ethics filings. Trump and the family members he’s brought into his White House don’t give a hoot about public trust.

Re: Greed


While the wages for most Americans have gone nowhere over the past decade, the salaries of top executives continued to climb. The average S&P CEO now makes 273 times more than the median employee. At some companies the ratio is much worse. For example, the CEO of Mattel makes 4,987 times more than its median worker.

In the 1950s, the so-called Golden Age of American capitalism, CEOs of America’s largest corporations were paid, on average, 20 times the pay of average workers, and the top marginal tax rate was 90 percent. We must rein in these huge salaries in order to rebuild the American middle class. What do you think?

Re: Greed


People have always been immoral, shiftless, and self-gratifying. For ages, humankind struggled to find a conceptual system to operationalize their spiritual shortcomings.

1.
Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.
============================================
With your democrats its all about Black Pride, and the arrogance of democrat lawyers and so-called, journalists. Hollywood gawdlings

2.
Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation.
======================================
This is your socialism, and you take away from others what you don't earn.


3.
Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires.
=====================================
Hollywood, Wall Street, Silicon Valley monsters-all democrats

4.
Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body.
=====================================
Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton, hollywood.

5.
Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. It is also known as Wrath.
===========================================
Most acts of violence emanate from the democrats in action. It's a weekly occurrence.

6.
Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. It is also called Avarice or Covetousness.
=========================================
Socialism, gaining from unearned income at the cost of those who do the work, your Wall Street Hedge Fund Chiefs who FUND the democrat party.

7.
Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work.
========================================
Again, democrats, are good with any dictatorship that gives them free things.
