    I asked a question....Are you not sure what "?" stands for?

    good rule of thumb : if you find yourself comparing anything to Nazi Germany, don't.

    I understand what you are saying, but Nazi Germany in the 30s did happen, and we as a people on this planet have a great propensity to forget the lessons of history, largely because we don't want to discuss things in comparison because it is just too painful, until we are faced with another like situation, and we all say how could this happen again? I say go ahead, and compare if it will quell another situation like it.

    No one is looking for an exploding bomb or anarchy. It's just a bit difficult to feel sorry for people because they have a huge pile of money. If it's a problem, they are welcome to unburden themselves of it. I'd be happy to take their problems over. If people want to blame the ills of the world on me, I'd be happy to let them. I won't be able to hear their laments while flying to Bermuda on my private jet anyway.

    Forgive me if I observe that you are making my point here.

    There were decades of demonizing the Jews as money grubbing blood sucking non-humans before there was a government in place willing to put into action the kinds of policies that were only talked about previously.

    The left is awash with bloody imagery and psychopathic day dreams at this point. It's no secret that if the government did start locking up and killing the wealthy that there would be a disturbingly large number of the left cheering. Hell, they idolize leaders that did precisely that in other countries!

    comparing marginal tax rates to Nazi Germany won't prevent anything but a cogent argument.

    Can you post an example of this radical hate speech?
