    Oh no doubt. I just find it funny how the older generation complains about taxes. Hell I have come to gripes with the reality that I will probably be paying more in taxes than my parents did or probably many of you here.

    America's poor are still wealthier then most people living in the world.

    Even if the release of this was timed, it's still relevant to the midterms and taxes.

    Now is not the time to give an additional tax break to the wealthy and super-wealthy.


    wow grew last year? I thought Obama fixed that.

    Re: Census finds record gap between rich and poor

    This is not a gap between "rich" and "poor". It is a gap between top wage earners and low wage earners. Someone making $100,000 a year is not rich in this country and I would hope people making more than $100,000 a year represents 49.4% of all income earned. This headline is contrived bull****. The cut off for rich versus poor is arbitrary. What do you expect coming from Washington though. And duh, it is only one year and we are in the middle of the worse econonomic crisis in how many years?

    I measure rich not by how much I have, but how little I need.
    Certainly a lot of us want more than we need, which is a good thing for the economy, UNLESS you are buying your wants using credit.

    Best way to do it.
    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.
