    There is no other explanation for this other than that poor people are lazier than ever.

    The problem is that if those tax cuts are not accompanied by other changes in the government budget and

    well there is the answer in his own article

    we need to cut the idiotic spending -much of which is unconstitutional to start with

    that's silly

    but it does appear that all this excuse making and entitlement advocacy for young people who drop out of school and shoot each other isn't working

    time to rethink

    true to some extent but also the economic reality has changed. people used to be able to make a decent living without much in the way of an education, intelligence or skills working at union factory jobs like the Detroit auto makers. Globalization means undeducated hard working people in India or Mexico or Ghana are willing to do the same quality of work for a whole lot less money. Education and technical skills are what is needed in order to make a comfortable living. Too many of our poor engage in life choices that prevent them from getting that education or skills or come from cultures that bad mouth education

    the tax hikes actually help solidify the status of the uber wealthy
    I have siblings and other relatives who are parasites, so no, I don't turn a blind eye. But there is nothing I can do that will convince the govt that those relatives are ripping off the taxpayers. Maybe you have a plan?

    Does a $700 billion bailout for failing look like punishment to you? Does earning 400x the average worker look like punishment to you? Oh boo hoo those who make obscene amounts of money should pay the same percentage of their income as does the average worker.

    You keep talking about people who are lazy and yet you are on this forum all day, everyday, which suggests you are not working. I see on your profile that you claim to be an oil worker. So tell me how do you work as oil worker if you on always playing on this forum?

    why do people like you demand tax hikes on people making over 200K and use idiotic terms like obscene amoungs of money. The vast vast majority of people who are targeted for tax hikes by the dems aren't billionaires.

    the richest people pay higher percentages on their earned income as you do

    the richest people pay at LEAST the same rate on unearned income as you do

    the richest people pay estate taxes-you do not

    the richest people pay more property taxes than you do and more state income taxes

    so what are you whining about?

    Well, no one was forcing the plantation owners to have slaves, either. And yet the slaves labor must have been worth something if it helped to pay for all those fancy plantation homes and allow their owners to live like mini kings. I know, you long for the good ol days of slave and mastah.
