    LOL, you don't seem to understand that we have a 3.7 trillion dollar Federal govt. that liberals want to fund with tax revenues but only from the rich and evil corporations. None understand how little those tax increases will benefit the Treasury.

    All you had to do was say you didn't know anything about marginal utility.

    You're wasting your time. All he is going to do is repost the same thing over and over until even he can believe it. People like that are in no way interested in a true meaningful meeting of the minds to correct a downward spiral. He is so full of hate all he wants is for the country to crash and burn so he can sling more propaganda around.

    Waiting for an answer to the question, how do tax increases put 25 million unemployed or employed Americans back to work or do you even care?

Maybe this crowd can put together a valid case of the most labor intensive production and services feeling a pinch from regulation (the largest would be the minimum wage), but this is only a positive reaction in both the short and long term.
    hey man, no disagreement here
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You are a bit dense, aren't you? Since you didn't seem to get it from my last reply to you after your crude insults I will try once again. You are not worth my time, you have nothing meaningful to say IMO. This will be the last response you will ever receive from me so please, read for comprehension this time. **** off.
