    Try living and working in the real world for a change and you will when you get out of school. Wait until you see how much waste, fraud, and abuse there is in our tax spending. Show me where in Google we need a 3.7 trillion dollar budget and why govt. doesn't need to go on a diet.

    Try responding with actual substance instead of mindless insults.

    Try pointing out the actual substance that I didn't respond to. seems the only ones here with personal attacks are you and the other liberals who cannot stand being challenged. Do you want to take a shot at what my "fair share" is regarding state, local, and Federal Taxes? Then explain why we need a 3.7 trillion dollar budget and when the govt. is going on a diet like the rest of the public under this Administration?

    Like far too many you believe that the economic pie is constant and never growing. Now that is probably true with a liberal in charge but not in the real world. There are a lot of wealthy liberals that want to keep people dependent but of course you ignore that.

    Here is a little lession for you on tax rates and affects on govt. revenue and who pays the taxes. Pay attention

    The "ever growing pie" claim is moot when those who have the existing pie get almost all of the new pie.

    I wonder how true the above statement is. For example when people talk about about the top 400 wealthiest people are those the same 400 wealthiest from 20 years ago? Was the facebook guy even on this list 10 years ago.

    Whose fault is it that you don't get a bigger piece of the pie? If you aren't getting a bigger piece of the pie it is probably because you expect someone to give it to you. That isn't going to happen. Work for it, earn it!

    Still waiting for someone to define my fair share in taxes, Federal, State, and local? I earned every dime in my career and chose how to spend it. Why do you think the govt. is better at deciding how to spend your own income?

    As usual, you argue what you want to argue, not what someone said.

    If those who have most of the existing pie get almost all of all new pie, the "ever growing pie" meme is a myth at best and a deliberate deceit at worst.

    As you have been asked to you believe Zuckerman was on that original list of wealthiest people? That indicates that the pie is always growing. What are you doing to get your piece of the pie? I see a lot of people here whining but I assure you that will never get more of the pie whining. Those that have much of the pie today only get more of the growing pie if you allow it and don't compete.

    Lets go over some basic math you seem to be lacking. Okay, we know that the top 1% are the richest blah blah blah. Alright, under the conservative philosophy, everyone, if they make the right decisions, can become a millionaire. How is that true? It isn't, 1% can't be expanded, it will always be the 1% unless we redistribute the wealth.
