    More idiocy,

    here is the problem

    we have an environment where those who drive government spending don't pay sufficient amounts of taxes to pay for what they want. If they had to pay for what they want, we'd have far less government. the progressive income tax was a scheme created by congress to buy votes because it allows congress to pander to the many without pissing the many off by making them actually pay for what they want.

    Your problem is that you think that wealth is a finite sum of money. You are dead wrong.

    First, you are the one that went down the path from access to right. People already have 'access' to all the things you mentioned. All they need to do if they want them, is work.

    As far as how to get out and about, um, how about doing it like hundreds of millions have done in the past? Put for the effort and make it happen. Take responsibility for oneself.

    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.
    Who the hell are you to determine that someone that makes 20 million only 'needs' 2 million? Who are you to suggest you even know what others need or deserve once they have achieved success. And I ask again, how does that provide any incentive for people to work to achieve great success?

    Hon, you don't pay employees out of your personal income. Come on now. That is the 2nd rather naive statement you have made on this page.

    What does our current economy have to do with people getting off their backsides and finding work, wherever it is, vs your suggestion that a job come to you?

    in other words those who want more and more government because they believe they get more and more power because they tend to run government.

    I don't think you have demonstrated that you have sufficient knowledge about economics to call a man who was top of his class at Harvard B School and who made millions in the investment sector and ran a successful olympic games clueless. Remind me of your education and accomplishments that gives you the expertise to judge?

    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).
