    Just empty posturing and a chance to get arrested and be a 'victim'.....which seems to be highly coveted by some.....

    You also might want to mention to said group of retards they ought to stop bitching so much about those that bust their ass to succeed...they ARE after all the people the dependent class in this country is relying on to take care of them.
    Ahh the makers and takers myth. Heard of that one.

    Too bad Eliot Spitzer banged a hooker and created enemies on the far right. He was well on his way in reforming Wall St and making America a better place for it.

    when 50% of the country doesnt pay income tax and in fact recieves social services and gets 'free' earned income credit (who the hell dreamed that name up BTW), it is more than obviously not a 'myth.'

    Still have yet to see anyone that supports these retards state what they think they are going to accomplish...other than the vague term 'the bankers' and 'Wall Street'. WIth all the union supporters that post here...you have yourselves a real dillema.

    Giving income distribution I dont see a problem with half of americans not paying income taxes. We only really need to tax a couple hundred people in the country I figure.

    Most of the people who do not pay income taxes are poor and elderly. Blaming them is not the problem.

    However, Wall St. has a long history of causing economic crises. Your implication that these dishonest brokers and hedge fund managers are earning their money through blood, sweat, and tears is most laughable. Where I come from, manipulating markets at other people's expense is not considered a hard day's work. When their manipulation and dishonesty catches up to them, what do we do?

    We bail them out and give them bonuses and unfortunately, people like yourself would rather displace the problem onto the poor and elderly.

    In fact, if we got rid of the income tax, we would have to resort to a "humble" government under the Clinton administration. Unfortunately, Bush and Co. screwed up limited government and paved the way for Obama and even more spending.

    Or having the 50% start taking care of themselves. Who told you this lie that income was supposed to be 'distributed'? What country do you live in? Distributed implies given away...thats the problem. Too many people just keep lying back on their backs waiting for the magic income fairy to distribute **** to them. Then when it doesnt happen they whine about how unfair life is.

    What fantasy land do you live in? Most of the income distribution that has happened during the 5 decades has been upwards, towards the upper 0.01%. Adjusting for inflation, median household income has not grown since the early 1960's, despite the average becoming more productive.

    Where you see a problem of income being distributed downwards, reality has shown that income has unfairly been distributed upwards. The evidence is overwhelming.

    What? The economy is in many ways regulated by the very people with vested interest in how it is regulated. Millions of unemployed can't help that theyre structurally unemployed out of a job. The economy crashes then you blame the people that can't work? Your visceral hate of a perceived class of lazies waiting for a handout is crass.
