    Okay...I guess my attempt at sarcasm and irony went right over your head. No problem, this is the Internet after all. But...can you tell me what you mean by "MIC"? I've never seen that before.

    Dividends and CEO's will continue t o be paid, so there will be no reduction in taxes......
    Now sure where you get your numbers...they really don't sound right. But hey, it doesn't really matter to me given your alteration of definitions. I mean, those making $40K are now "rich" and those making $200k are now "very rich" (not sure where you draw the line for the "mega rich").

    To be sure, now, it's all relative. Compared to someone living in a third world country and making $4 a day, even our poor would be considered "mega rich".

    What comes as no surprise but I still find angering me is all the articles I have read state that congress is looking to postpone any significant cuts down the road. Some have stated that the goal they are looking toward is around 4T over 10 years in government cuts but those cuts will not take affect immediately but instead start years from now. This ladies and gentlemen is exactly the mindset that has gotten us into the situation we are in. They will continue to kick the can down the road while hoping we lose focus so they can continue to overspend on projects they support. In 10 years they may (by a miracle) cut some spending but in the meantime they will have added on 5x more spending during that time. It is enough to make a grown man scream in frustration. Luckily I am still growing! (outward).

    We never a presidential election where the media purposely chose a candidate and suppressed information that did not look good for Obama. That is why the left is misinformed. I've seen many post where there is facts out there that they actually have no clue what you are talking about.

    The media is selecting our president.

    MIC is military Industrial Complex

    It is IRS figures. ..

    And majority of USA makes min wage to $15hr so that makes them all rich.

    They can leave USA all they want. They STILL must pay USA taxes. USA taxes are based on citizenship, not location. And look up 877A taxes.........LOL

    Thanks about the "MIC".

    So...minimum wage to $15 an hour is rich.

    Somehow, I don't think anyone earning that much would consider themselves rich...but you are welcome to your opinion.

    Just out of curiosity, are you rich, very rich or mega-rich. By your standards, I'm rich.
