    It’s always amusing when the kind of people whose greatest contribution to society is that they haven’t robbed, killed or raped anyone in at least a month claim that they are being oppressed because those who actually maintain society don’t give them 90% of their income.

    It’s almost as amusing as when they claim that the rich, who pay every year 10000 times more in taxes than they will pay in their whole life, aren’t paying “their fair share.”

    you think the rich got that way simply because they were smart? that they didn’t use anything that our society has to offer, and that they did it on their own? that the US military had no role in protecting them from the unwashed world around us? show me someone that did it ALL on their own, and I’ll agree that person shouldn’t pay back into the society that got them to where they are. Until then though, I expect anyone that gets rich to give a good chunk of it back to the rest of their community to help… Read more »

    Its nice to know that you support slavery. That’s what it is when the fruits of one’s labor are seized and given to someone else. No one should be obligated to support someone else. Nearly 50% pay $0 in income taxes, the bottom 40% contribute around -4% of income tax revenues, due to refundable tax credits. The bottom 40% contribute something like 5% of all revenues to the federal government and the top 20%contribute something 85% of all revues. When is it enough? How much is enough? What is a “fair” tax rate for the wealthy? What is a fair… Read more »

    It amazes me how many people have swallowed “persecuted rich” story the right is pedaling. It’s just sooooo tragic that the richest 1% pays lower tax rates than everyone else. What’s even worse is how shamelessly people are using the recession to swindle the country. Here’s a time line of the rhetoric for those not keeping track: 2008: OMG the sky is falling. If we don’t bail out the rich WE’RE DOOMMED!!!! 2009: Corporations rebound and profits rise. Sorry, they still can’t make any new jobs. Oh yeah, you want Health Care reform so you won’t go bankrupt if you… Read more »

    My god you’re an idiot. By your incredibly loose definition of slavery, having a job is slavery. Guess what, when you do your job, a portion of the fruits of you labor are taken and given to someone else. Usually it’s given to someone higher up the food chain. This is actually where the massive unbalance of wealth comes from in this country. The elite few reap the benefits of the hard work of the majority. You might know who I’m talking about. They’re the people you characterize as people whose greatest contribution to society is that they haven’t robbed,… Read more »
