What concerned me about this thread, and the reason I edited my reply was


that I quickly realized -- it was not an attempt to have a discussion about income inequality in various professions. It was one of those lying-in-wait "gotchas", where people reply, then the trap is sprung and the "hypocrite" label is dropped on them.

The point seems to be that if conservative Wall St. bankers make huge incomes, then liberals think that is wrong; but if liberal entertainers make huge incomes, then liberals are fine with that. That's not exactly the case, because first, entertainers cannot be all lumped into one political belief system; and second, liberals who make large incomes are more favorably inclined towards a progressive taxation system.
So, what disappointed me was --- it's a disingenuous thread, because it's a click bait -- there's no intention towards an honest dialog -- only the intention of setting up a "straw man" arugument. That's why I backed out of it. -- B4E
