    Re: Obama: No Deal Without Tax Hikes

    from Turtle

    When someone whines that estate taxes should be "high and steep" the only conclusion to be drawn is that the speaker either is fabulously wealthy or hates those who actually have an inheritance to look forward to.
    Do you realize what you are doing in taking this stance? You are both demonzing those richer than you and those poorer than you simply because they have adopted a position on an issue which works against your own greed. So only those with an income like you who think like you based on having beliefs like you have any credibility? That is patently absurd.


    Its based on envy and its a surcharge on those who have already paid more than their fair share of taxes.
    What did Andrew Carnegie - on the worlds richest men in his day - have to be envious about?

    What does Bill Gates - one of the richest men in the world today - have to be envious about?

    What does Warren Buffet - one of America's richest men ' have to be envious about?

    Your constant whine about ENVY is without merit. It is a defense mechanism adopted by those attempting to elevate themselves on a pedestal in their own minds pretending that everybody else simply wants to be like them. The charge of ENVY is self serving and phony in the extreme.

    Nothing is funnier than someone who pretends to adopt the alleged noble views of the very wealthy in order to have the government confiscate wealth of people more industrious than he is.
    Actually, those were my views before I had ever discovered the writings of Carnegie or others. And once again, you are ignorant of how industrious I am or any other member actually is so why do you levy such irresponsible charges when you have no foundation for them or no actual knowledge of our industry?

    What Haymarket ignores is that most wealthy people work hard for their families and while some may wish to leave their wealth entirely to charity (which, of course is their right) to claim that justifies government confiscation of such wealth is specious and of course spiteful
    No. What I want is an America in which every person knows the joy and pride of what it takes to make it in this country. The rich man who clads his progeny in silk diapers with a diamond studded pacifier does a huge disservice to the fop or dandy he produces and raises. Carnegie knew that as do many many others who made it on their own.

    If you are going to subscribe to the ideology which carnegie himself criticized as craven and without merit

    "Man must have an idol -- The amassing of wealth is one of the worst species of idolatry. No idol more debasing than the worship of money."


    at least have the courage and initiative to go out and build your own idol with money you earned yourself honestly and with the sweat of your own brow.


    I can understand how somebody who is not a self made man or woman can take umbrage at that thought. After all, if one has things handed to them and starts out life with great advantages, they feel entitled to that. But that is why we as a society through our elected government have adopted the wise policy of estate and income taxes.

    God Bless the United States of America and its people.

    It usually consists of an officer Forward Air Controller (FAC), a SNCO FAC and usually a pair of signallers/drivers.

    We called you FO (forward observer), if you jumped with us. And they had some non-blood beret. Don't get smart with me, flyboy; we expected 50% on a jump.


    Are you a leg?
