    No need. You are not capable of having an actual discussion. Pointing out the flaws in your thinking is boring....
    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.

    Talk about nonsense.
    I never once said I excuse that theft. If we catch the people that did it, they should be arrested, tried, and convicted, if guilty. They owe a redress to society, and to the people whom they robbed.

    Opinionated drivel knows no bounds.

    Too much?

    Concentration of owned wealth that actually negatively affects everybody else.
    Actually, that's the best answer to that question I've ever gotten. And one I'll agree with.

    Now for another one...how much of a concentration of owned wealth negatively affects everybody else?

    Your silly attempt to liken the funding mechanism of government to a petty thief is in plain view of anyone who enters this thread.

    And yet, you are still not address my point. Either put up, or shut up.

    If theft is the taking of another persons property without their consent...and income taxes are not supported by all those that pay them...how is income taxation not theft? Your previous answer was because it's the law. But I'll tell you this right now...making it legal does not suddenly change the definition of theft...just like making killing legal does not change the definition of murder.

    Petty theft is not wealth redistribution. Forcing tax payers to water down their money pool and give all the sugar to failing banks = wealth redistribution.

    OWS:
    "Get governemnt and wallstreet out of bed."
    "Stop backroom contracts."
    "Stop watering down my money"
    "Get the CIA off of wallstreet big wig bench"
    "Yay for socialism!" (a very small percent. Usually dumb kids that are parroting stuff they probably heard from a teacher or something)

    Cheer squad for this thread:
    "AHAHAHA THE STUPID liberal hippy Communists want to steal from the businiess type American and now they are being stolen from... AHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAH!! BWAHAHAAH!!! BAHAAHWHWHAHAH TRORLROLOLOLLLOLOLOLOlllllolo!!!Lol1ol."

    It's the same thing. Confiscation against your will.

    You can get out if it the way the thread is going doesn't work for you.

    Banks paid it back, with interest.
