    Well **** the prison benefits the poor. Most people in prison are not wealthy and they get a cot plus three square aday!

    your credibility does not exist with me so your claims have no merit to me

    I realize that socialists try to pretend that this country isn't socialist enough

    but this country oozes the scum of socialism

    Says the one who pukes out Beckish hyperbolic nonsense. I hear ya.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    yawn-why do you spend so much time wanting people like me to pay more taxes when I get nothing additional over what you get

    envy and spite is clearly what motivates such nastiness

    you need to work more and stop whining that others need to be looted more

    First, I showed the wealthy do get more. And second, I don't whine because others pay less than I do, so why should you whine because you pay more (while getting more-assuming you are rich).

    Do you think you could say why that is so instead of just saying that it is? I mean, the rich do benefit more, but they pay the same proportion of their income, so a higher total amount. Mind proving why that is not enough?

    I also see above someone questioned Sowell. I told you I have read him before. He tends to let ideaology color his analysis. This tends to make him have different conclusions than others make. I have avoided mentioning this and simply tried to show you that what he claims isn't so, and by giving you a variety of sources showing the same thing. I suspect this won't convince you. Whether you suffer from the same problem as Sowell, I can't say. But the problenm you suuggest doesn't equal the conclusion you've drawn. More rich and more poor, and less middle means there is a gap between rich and poor.
    I'm done with this. You're not even responding to the criticisms I am putting forward.

    no you didn't

    you claimed that the rich got tax breaks

    the top 1% pay 40% of the income taxes--are you claiming they get more than 40% of the benefits provided by those taxes

    you didn't

    you fail
