My argument was that our country fared just fine when the rates were high.
    So his argument was that reimplementing a high tax on the wealthy would hurt the economy, while your argument is that it wouldn't. How is that different than what I just said? You're still the one who got off on a nonsensical discussion of net wealth and gross tax revenues, while the rest of us were continuing to talk about income tax rates and economic progress.

    He doesn't understand it or doesn't want to.
    I'm done with trying to explain some what complex subjects to people who don't want to understand.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Yeah, please ignore all things not related to your view of the subject. I just don't get it because I refuse to accept your opinion. Have fun!
