She was 100% correct.

    The more I read from the left, the more I honestly think they just simply are not based in ANY sort of reality. People like the above. Assumptions and obvious lack of understanding of different types of 'income' and how taxation on them works.

    Then just admit the point is to soak the 'rich', because you feel they have 'too much'.

    See, a 'RIGHT' to a car, a 'RIGHT' to a house. No wonder we are so freaking messed up. The whole point of personal responsibility and earning your keep is so lost on so many people.

    So you want to let 'rich' people keep a whole 10% of their efforts? How freaking generous of you. How do you justify taking so much from them? And how does that provide ANY incentive for people to excel in life?

    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    (Although you will argue that they should move but how are they supposed to move if they don't have transportation or funding for that project)
    Getting a ride from someone only lasts as long as their patience.

    Oh my, let me guess, it is the job of everyone else to seek out these people and give them a job right? Heaven forbid anyone put forth effort for their own success in life.

    Sometimes that works. I pay a high school kid $30 a week to mow my yard. And it only takes him maybe 45 minutes. Think of all the money you could make if everyone gave you $20-$50 a pop.

    Do you have a job, Jryan? How old are you?

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.

    A right to a car and entertainment...wow. Not even I would go that far.

    Do you realize how much it takes to do adequate maintenance on a vehicle? A car is an investment, not a toy.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    First of all, this is my OP:

    So leaving out that you totally changed (I have since changed this a little), right to a roof over their head to 'RIGHT' to a house, I'll say that a roof over your head is a need. People have to be able to be shielded from the elements. While you can live outdoors, it is a miserable existence and we left that 10000 years ago.

    Secondly, how do you suggest (again I have altered it slightly) people get to work, find a job, or go get food without a mode of transportation?

    So you want to let 'rich' people keep a whole 10% of their efforts? How freaking generous of you. How do you justify taking so much from them? And how does that provide ANY incentive for people to excel in life?
    Not setting a limit of when I would propose someone be taxed at these levels but 10% of 20 million is still 2 million. If you can't live off a salary of 2 million dollars a year, and I mean live lavishly, then you are not a millionaire.
