    Yep, us "silly and beaten" folks are the ones that pay your bills.

    Pretty rich from someone that claims profit is not a necessary prerequisite for hiring new people.

    Next time actually read what I posted, and you won't look so silly next time.

    You don't pay my bills jr. There's nothing new about a progressive tax, and all we're talking about is going back to pre-Bush tax cuts. This is hardly oppressive. And we weren't doing badly with the higher tax rate.

    But don't let facts influence you when you can just be snarky.

    He didn't say that, way to misrepresent yet again.


    Look Joe, Let's say you're right, let's say that taxes on a business mean nothing at all to it decisions in running, or expanding that business. Then can you explain why it is that the reports of uncertainty in business today are hinging on what the liberal controlled congress is going to do with the "Bush tax cuts"?

    Oh I know, libs have been in love with "progressive" taxes for a very long time. They love to take from those that produce and give to those that take.

    Oh, and I'm older than you.... junior.

    Most governments in the world have a progressive tax. And we've had it with a republicans in charge as well democrats. Again, it isn't new. You may whine about it, but it is common and something that has not prevented people being rich. hell, they still prefer being rich to being poor without a second thought. So, your whining on this doesn't impress me.

    Oh, and if you really are older, try acting like it. Be more civil in your discourse.

    I wasn't trying to impress you, I was trying to educate you. That is obviously a waste of time. You are too embedded in Obama's "share the wealth" philosphy.

    Well, you have to present some factual information to educate. And you propbably shouldn't say something silly like tax cuts mean more than supply and demand. And then when you type something so idiot based as the "share the wealth' stupidity, well, I don't see how you can educate.

    Notice the word you use, "reports." Who is reporting this? And how do they know? I'm sorry, but when people are willing to spend, some one will step up and meet that demand. Business is never too scared to make a buck. Shooting yourself in the head because you're uncertain that someone might step on your toe is just too silly to accept. I'm sorry.

    You have the nerve to request factual information?????

    You can start by attempting to show where I made such a claim, then for a follow-up, you can apologize.

    By the way, you should know that personal insults are frowned upon here. But you should already know that with your post number, so I can only assume that you choose to ignore the forum rule.

    You said people buying don't matter (supply and demand) and that taxes do.
