    Why are you so afraid to tell me the title of that book, Conservative? Don't you defend what you post? Or is what you post such BS that you realize it's not worth defending?

Still waiting for you to give me the month that GW Bush had 25 million unemployed or under employed Americans?
    Herbert Hoover had a 25% unemployment while he was in office which comes out to be 40 million unemployed. Looks like your claims are lacking factual evidence.

Doesn't it bother you that the 25 million plus number is in September 2011 over 2 1/2 years into the Obama term? That is why Obama has a very low approval rating, one that you continue to ignore.
    Since when do you post payroll survey data, Con? Why are you selectively switching between the two and settling on the one with the smaller employment growth numbers?

    Show me the BLS offical press release that says there were 400K net jobs created? If there were 400k jobs created why didn't the unemployment percentage drop? You don't think 400 net job growth would cause a percentage reduction?

    So what? BLS didn't exist during the Hoover years. How do you know how many unemployed there were during the Hoover years and why does that even matter now?

    We have already gone over this, 400 thousand (Jobs created) divided by 25 million (Unemployed) Gives .016. Seeing as how the unemployment is only measured in tenths...

They don't pay taxes because it's almost impossible to survive on 12 thousand a year anyway. Don't try to say that your number is just inaccurate. What you have proposed is a flat tax. A flat tax is without a doubt predatory to the poor. To say that everyone should be taxed the same percentage of their income is one thing but to assert that everyone should pay the exact same amount of money is ludicrous. Say everyone pays 5000 dollars which still probably wouldn't be enough. Then the man who makes 10,000 dollars a year is taxed at 50% of his income. The woman who makes 20,000 dollars a year is taxed at 25%. The college grad who comes out into the workplace at 45,000 a year with massive debts pays 11.1% a year. Finally the wall street executive making 450,000 dollars a year is taxed at 1.11% of his income. The more you make the less you pay in. The less you make the more you pay in. Even then a flat tax raises a lot less revenue than a progressive tax, if the top 20 percent possess 93% of the wealth and your taxing them at 10% or less, even if you tax 100% of the income of the bottom 80 percent you stand to raise no where near the same amount of money. It's just common sense. I've also noted that you don't understand why the wealthy should pay more. Other than for the reason I just mentioned it becomes necessary to point out that in 1945 the income tax rate for the top bracket was 91 percent. 1981-86 (your boy reagan) the effective income tax rate for the wealthiest of Americans was 50%. Point being the top tax bracket needs to stop whining.
    why should people who already are useful to society have a duty to pay so much more than those who are not. Your idiotic reference to historical rates ignores the fact that the income tax was supposed to be temporary and did not exist for more than half of our history

    Nature is hard on those who don't provide for themselves and to suggest that isn't the natural order is silly
