    Just because fraud has not been vigorously prosecuted, doesn't mean that it isn't prolific in the US. Just ask gov. Walker.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    You think Wall Street is up the creek now, just wait till you mess with Capital Gains.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    The best thing that could ever happen is that Wall Street would be swallowed up by the creek

    why do you keep spewing your envy of those who do better than you?

    Most losers support taxes on those who do better than them

    doesn't make that right

    that is why we need a tax system where the parasites cannot vote up the rates on the producers without suffering a like hike themselves

    "Do you realize why costs are rising?"

    Because speculators with way too much cash are driving up prices on commodities?
    Or is it the 20% a year profit growth Corporations need to keep their stock from crashing?

    The only system that can work in a consumer based ecnomy like ours is one that taxes money not spent. Taxing money that people would spend boosting the economy is self-defeating. Progressive taxes benefit all by boosting the economy and putting "lost" money to work when the Govt. spends it.
