    And not rich is not rich is not rich. No matter what era of history you lived in.

    Just plain ignorant seems to describe what you wrote. The prof was saying that people fool themselves into believing that they can identify with the rich when they are clearly not rich.

    Apparently your skills in obtaining the lesson from a parable are sorely out of shape.

    But I can see why a right libertarian would hate it.
    I dont hate it, it is just a stupid analogy and an even dumber parable. Despite your professors claim, it in no way highlights the 'fundamental difference between a man and a dog.' But it does highlight the stupidity of some college professors, though.

    that is because every thread about taxes is permeated with butt hurt whining about the rich from those who have failed to achieve

    I guess your constant responses demonstrate that tinkers dam (not damn-major error there-a dam was what a tinker used in retaining molten solder from overflowing)

    Based on your reaction, looks like he hit a home run out of the park.

    Thank you for that bit of trivia. And I still do not care what somebody believes.

    What actual evidence do you have that anyone or everyone who disagrees with you about tax policy has failed to achieve?

    Okay - fair enough. At least for those who identify their situation as such.

    However many of us who do strongly disagree with you on taxes are very successful.

    there are people who believe that having dems in power will accentuate their wealth or power. those who work for the dem party or those who are beholden to dem policies for their wealth and power.

    and there are single issue voters whose single issue trumps perhaps the deleterious impact dem policies have on their finances. Rich Gays are a classic example

    You could be describing people on the Republican side also. That sword cuts both ways.

    I do not work for the Democratic Party. I work for a State Representative who happens to be a Democrat. There is a difference and a difference with a distinction.
