Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
"True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero
Indeed you did:I didn't say I was paying higher taxes, do you always make stuff up?
I am paying a higher rate to support their benefits.
Probably, if this is the quality of your bringin' it.Have you tried the Chat threads, you might find those more enjoyable.
2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Yes that is life. Misery, inequality, all a part of life. The same can be said about happiness, love, etc. The point is that we as complex MAMMALS can CHOOSE to be happy. Regardless of what our material wealth is most people in this nation have food, a roof over their head. And if they do not it is because they are morons with money or because they just are stupid.So you accept whatever comes your way with an attitude of "that's life?" Interesting.
Ok, because most of the crap you post is better? I didn't think so. Quit posting crap from some extremist organization that if they had power the leaders would be just as corrupt as the ones we currently have now. And frankly taxing the hell out of everyone so that you can provide food, housing, healthcare for everyone is a dumb idea. That just makes everyone dependent on the government and that makes them weak.I'm sorry, I don't really understand your babble.
READ the sources you have posted. All are complaining about rich people and how they have so much money and how much money they make compare to everyone else. What is their equality that everyone earns six figures? That is stupid and frankly it is complaining about not having enough money, ie not rich.I think you have a problem with comprehension. I've not read any post from someone complaining about not being rich. Perhaps you would like to point it out to me.
No instead of playing you want to steal that is always better than playing by the rules and doing it with your head. You instead like the government want to do it with force.Thanks for the enlightening information. Now, why don't you take your own advise and go and do that, I don't have time to play right now.
New money comment. Its not true for all. I did make a generality. Look at the Gates family. They are new money but look at all of the good they are doing. I have also dealt with people who have old money. They seam to be much more calculated and calm regarding finances. When you make a comment that 450K is not enough to live on and that if taxes go up people are stealing from you then you come off sounding selfesh and uncaring. One out of seven Americans makes less than 20k. Maybe a little gratitude for the go a long way.
Putting them together: Trickle-down being bunk does not mean that nobody got rich. The number of wealthy people has gone up consistantly over the last two decades. That does not give validation to trickle down.
