    Thanks. That's all I was asking...

    perhaps before we continue this discussion, you should :

    a. read the thread.

    b. read what i actually posted in the thread.

    i support a tiered marginal structure and taxing all income as income above a cap. i also support cutting the corporate rate. you would have already known this if you had actually taken the time to read what i posted before tossing out your strawman and then hitting it like a piñata.
    Gheeze, take a chill pill....I don't know what you problem is but you are awfully defensive...

    When you pretend that I advocated for a ninety percent peacetime marginal rate, then yes, I'm going to correct that and point out your strawman.

    It's really Burger King's fault. But people don't need to eat that crap, anyway. It's not really food. It's chemicals and additives and pink slime.

    I did no such thing...I asked you a question to which you immediately got defensive over...Just because you want to read into things isn't my problem...and it explains much.

    If the deal means more Tim Horton's here in the US, I'm all for it.

    I love it when I have to take a load to Columbus OH. I usually park right behind one, and the morning is that much better gettin' me some Horton's before hitting the road back.
