    most banks have also paid back their tarp money.

They're a bunch of snot-nosed kids who've probably never paid a rent bill in their lives. Supported by parents who taught them very carefully that personal responsibility is obsolete.
    I believe progressive taxation is theft.

    Damn straight, it is.

    The only justification for the bum taking your $5500 Mac is because you have one and he doesn't.

    Same as progressive taxes.

    Flat tax and consumption tax are regressive taxation though.

    Not the interest, the orig loan amount.

    Big deal. The money came with virtually no interest and we paid them interest on this money. We gave them the money and then paid them interest on it and then they give it back. I'd love to get a deal like that.

    They haven't given it back yet, Obama won't let them. So long as they don't pay back that money in full, Obama gets a say in how those banks who took that money are run/operate.

    You are conflating the capital injections from TARP and monetary policy objectives implemented to accurately achieve a target rate. Therefore the whole "we are not going to get that money back" comment is fruitless.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    All intertwined bull**** which is why I acknowledge that many of the complaints from OWS is foolish, I support them overall.
