    My avatar is of no consequence to the discussion or my ability to make relevant statements in regards to political economy. The forum does know that you have ZERO understanding of politics, finance, economics, etc..... Which is why i get such a kick out of the chest-puffing you tend to display.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Obama's vision of the US is nothing more than 100% government dependence. We all work for the government or work for an entity that pays 99% of their income to the government - that's what he wants.

    Why the hell should the private sector partake in such nonsense?

    What incentive do I have to start a business? what, so I can take home about as much or even less than an employee at Burger King while working 70 hours a week?

    I'll bet some small business owners take home less than their employees do, and are in debt up to their eyeballs. Meanwhile people like you ignorant to that fact think they should "pay their fair share" just because on paper they're worth X amount.

    One of these days I pray you get robbed by someone, maybe then "redistribution" will mean something to you.
    What in the hell, more appropriately, what the **** are you on about? Where in the hell did I list my wishes for any of those things in the post you quoted?

    For you wishing ill on me, I will do the same. I hope one day you have the **** kicked out of you for making malicious assumptions about them and pegging them to nonsense bogus stereotypes.

    Anyone worth their salt saw this coming. Austerity=recession. Maybe somebody in politics might listen this time...nah, probably. not.
    I consistently am dismissed by many when I bring this point up. Many fail to realise this fact. But it is a necessary recession, as the deficit you guys have cannot be maintained for very much longer.

    I'm talking about your ass and your tyrannical implications..

    I'm glad you want my ass whooped. A dozen people would need their asses kicked before that happens. Getting to me would be like attempting to beat a NES video game.

    Oh it most certainly is...

    Look, I didn't read 100+ books and spend 10 years educating myself just so some kid can waltz up in here with a wild imagination and pretend to know what the **** he/she is talking about. That is an insult to me and every goddamn thing I learned. Now shut the **** up and post something that is worthwhile to read that actually can be debated or go the **** away, because I have no desire to throw dung at you from the sidelines.

    Get it?

    It does me as well, but in the way our flawed western economy works, necessary.

    What tyrannical implications have I EVER listed in this thread? Or even ever?
