    So, where has wealth been created? Sure, the government ripped people off with the increased property tax, but where does the property owner realize any increase in his billfold? He doesn't, does he? The only thing he realizes, is that he's paying more taxes.
    He pays those taxes with after-tax money he earned working. So he gets taxed twice.

    You need to stop embarressing yourself and work on explaining the tactical transition from the Air/Land Battle Doctrine to assymetrical warfare.

    What does this have to do with the stimulus?

    What does it mean to create wealth? How is it done? How do you know when you have wealth?

    It's simple, if I make $30,000 dollars one year, then make $40,000 the next year, wealth has been created. Not once, since I've been in the private sector has any government money created wealth for me.

    LOL, next thing he will claim is that the highway system is not a form of "wealth".
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Nope, government run power plants aren't wealth, either.
