Maybe taxes should be raised on everyone except for the poor. Would you be up for that or is it more about spreading the wealth so incomes are more equal?
    It is more about spreading the wealth so incomes are more equal. Yes. There still could be stratification of incomes but not to the ludicrous degree that that are in today's out of control "system".

    why should those who work hard and smart have to have their income taken to fund those who are stupid and lazy? that only encourages more stupidity and laziness. How is society made better by watering down the work ethic?

    I agree totally. Now let's get back on the subject I was talking about. Those who are "smart" and don't work hard, while they let their employees do the hard work, should have income taken from them (notice I didn't refer to it as "their"), because they have simply manipulated money and people to enrich themselves, at the expense of everyone else in the society, who, unlike these lazy smart aleks, have been working hard, including the employees of these rich business owners.
    This also improves the work ethic, by getting money (reward) into the pockets of those who actually worked for it (while their big boss was out on his fishing boat or the golf course). Get it ?

    what i get is class envy and a hatred of the concept of capitalism and the freedom to contract from you.

    Sure. Because you're in total denial, because if you faced the truth, you wouldn't be able to carry on with your immoral practice of manipulating to your own advantage, at the expense of others. So let's get to it TurtleDude. I came clean a while back in the thread and openly revealed my stake in the issue. As I said before, I owned my own business for 10 years. I have no class envy, then or now. I'm not a materialist who worships money and the material things it can buy.
    Even today, I'm spending what little money I have to take a stray cat to a veterinarian to treat a skin disorder (instead of spending those bucks on myself). No TurtleDude, you are the obsessed-with-money one in this thread, and it's written all over you. Only thing is you have the limited vision to think that everybody thinks like you.

    So what's your bio ? Business owner ? Millionaire ? Greed freak ? I'm just wondering from what perspective you're talking from. Maybe if you're so involved in this tax cuts for the rich thing you should recuse yourself from the discussion ?

    Yup.

    Dude. You don't know the current lingo, you didn't know Silence of the Lambs, you keep referencing Burt Reynolds . . .

    Are you aware of anything cultural that's happened since 1982?


    I just wanted to correct the misperception that you created about being an Independent.
    By confirming that you were doing exactly what I said you were doing . . . and I'm the one with the misconception? Shoo-wee.

    You may be interested to know that there is a very populous school of thought that doesn't share the idea that the income that manipulators who succeed in raking in millions (or even a Billion/year),, isn't really "their" income. That's only your perspective. Nothing more.
    In fact, since the majority of the American people oppose the tax cuts for the rich, it looks like the "their" perspective is in the minority.

    You're saying most people think that the income of the rich doesn't really belong to them?

    And you object to being called "fringist"?



    Between this, the "Islam isn't a real religion," and the militant veganism, dude, you're about as fringe as it gets.

    The "view of the independent," indeed.
