    Would it be easier if we thought more in terms of wealth ownership?

    Seeing taxes as a way to reward/penalize people is a scary proposition. I'm surprised you'd propose such a thing. Who gets to decide if someone is working hard enough or not. Why would you want to punish people for investing?

    No it doesn't help, it just makes me feel sorry for someone that is so envious of others success that they would expend so much energy in figuring out how they can bring that success down, instead of using that energy in how to be successful themselves...It's pathetic.

    Oh, and "thinkprogress"? Really

    So it doesn't help to know just how much wealth is owned by the rich and just how much is being hidden? I would hope you had more curiosity than that.

    Sorry dude, I don't really care. See the wealth pie is not static. Just because they have what they have doesn't mean that I can't bake my own pie....Oh, and I am not concerned in what my co workers make either....

    Are you actually denying that you complain about your taxes and advocate any scheme that comes along which would reduce your own personal tax bite. In case you have forgotten about so many of your previous posts, I have them close at hand and will be happy to post them for you with you in your own posts and in your own words changing positions on your tax "principles" as fast and as often as the wind changes in a bad storm.

    One can point their finger at the entire rest of the world but it is still complaining repeatedly about your own taxes. That is not "a silly claim". That is the gospel truth. It has been done right here in this very thread. And scores of others.

    I have a right to complain-I pay more FIT than 65 million americans combined. and they get far more benefits from the government than I do yet many of them demand more benefits and demand people like me pay more taxes

    As an addition to the post i made earlier

    The money you earned and invested is not being taxed again, but the work the money is doing for you. Remember it is capital gains that are being taxed not the capital itself
