    But the fact remains, most of the rants about the tax cuts comes from those who don't have the juice to be major league tax payers and are envious of those who do.
    The fact remains that you have never demonstrated in any thread even a basic understanding of the tax code or economics.

    Though, you are quite talented at parroting talk radio talking points.

    Why would I need education from you? I completed law school
    Well, since you brought it up, I have never seen anything that verifies that statement. IMO - You're complete lack of knowledge about the tax code would also indicate that you are not credible. Perhaps if you would actually post something other than generalized partisan talking points, we might be more convinced.

    tell me hazlnut, if you are so wise about economics how come you aren't close to being in the top tax bracket? I have seen nothing from you that demonstrates you have a clue about how taxes work. All I see is someone who is mad that others are wealthy and you want the government to punish them.

    I posted many detailed explanations for you, hoping to help you get a handle on some basic concepts... but you were unable to respond with any specifics, just the same broken record mindless talking points.

    For example:

    All I see is someone who is mad that others are wealthy and you want the government to punish them.
    - another broken record talking point.

    Next time we cover some economics or tax topics, I'll try to go slow when explaining things.

    Yeah I amused at your attempts. perhaps you ought to apply your vast knowledge to your personal economic condition and you can join me in being a high net taxpayer and with that perspective you will understand why its idiotic to keep jacking up taxes on other people

    From your replies in those threads, I'm pretty sure I was talking over your head.

    Again, the broker recored. That's all you ever say. You can never actually explain your position beyond the broken record moronic right-wing radio talking points. You just repeat the same delusional nonsense over and over and over... But you never really say anything.

    I agree with Hazelnut. First of all, you talk like the goal in life is to make to the high tax brackets. My goal is to make sure I have enough to live on retirement comfortably and afford my children's education. Anymore is called excess. Excess should be taxed. Why is cigarettes taxed heavily, a table taxed moderately and food taxed none in WI? The first is not necessary. The second is necessary some of the time. And the third is necesarry all the time. The same applies to people who obviously dont work 20x more/harder than somebody, but makes 20x more than somebody.
    and so it goes...

    Good points....too much money causes problems that most of us don't want to deal with.

Those people could be trained by the company itself to do what needs to be done, they could even train people for the jobs that do require hands on work. And really, wouldn't a company rather have someone that is trained for the specific job they need with their particular quirks in mind than someone fresh out of college that thinks they know what the company needs?
    I've always been an advocate of hiring from within, but I'm sure there's more to this "knowledge and technology" issue than either of us could hope to identify in a few brief posts. Still, you do make a valid point.

    Sounds alot like class envy to me.

    Just because that what you want out of life doesn't mean that you get to force everyone else to accept that out of life.

    Bottom line is, some people are more motivated and more ambitious than others. Those more motivated and ambitious people shouldn't be punished.

    How are you going to feel, if one day, an agenda come along that says that having, " enough to live on retirement comfortably and afford my children's education", is considered excess and tells you that you must give up half of it? Basically, that's door you're opening.
