    LOL - actually, you already made my point so I thought I'd interject with a side of humor instead of restating the stated.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    So, do you support raising the capital gains tax?

    I'd restructure taxes altogether and start taxing the hell out of derivatives, speculation and put in a investment transaction fee. Don't know how much I'd toy with capital gains.

    Tax the hell out of derivatives? Why would you screw so many retirees?

    How would you even tax speculation? That one is hillarious!

    Investment transaction fee? Again, why would you screw so many retirees?

    Just...wow!

    Lets cherry pick in 1916 the tax rate was 2% up to $20,000 and the top rate was 15% after you made over $2,000,000, and that was in 1916

    To your second point, people would reinvest instead of paying 90% only if they could write off that investment, otherwise they still have to pay the 90%. Take capital gains, when tax capital gains you drive investors out of reinvesting..

    Taxed progressively. Not flat.

    I basically was being redundant... Investment transaction being the speculation tax.

    In other words, you did a little research and figure out that you didn't really know what you were talking about.

    It's not my definition. It's Karl Marx's.

    Look up "abstract versus concrete labor".

    Anyone who puts empiricism before rationalism is a communist. Anyone who respects hard work before working smart is a communist.

    Anyone who believes it's permissible to project "use value" behind pragmatism is a communist.
