How on earth did I "derail the thread to talk about taxes" when the OP is about taxes?Originally Posted by hazlnut
Okay!So why is the middle class getting poorer and the rich getting richer? I suspect it might have something to do with the systemic dismantling of our manufacturing base that sent millions of jobs overseas and the packing of the SCOTUS with activist judges that have consistently ruled in favor of corporate interests over democracy and individual rights. Never was the later more apparent than in their recent ruling Citizens United vs Federal Election Commission which has allowed the Koch's blatant and obvious attempt to steal the upcoming election. And of course, the banks, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan have entrenched themselves in the government and now literally have this country's economy by the balls. We the people don't stand a chance against this corporate oligarchy...see my sig. Viva la French Revolution, history is about to repeat itself again.
