    I do not know what country you think you inhabit. In the America I live in ALL citizens have rights. And that obviously does not please you.

    So here is the plan:

    • Next year we raise the taxes on the rich to 100%. That oughta bring the deficit down.
    • So the following year the "rich" will all be broke so they won't have to pay any taxes. That should make them happy.
    • And since those former rich bastards are now broke and unemployed, they will be collecting Unemployment Benefits (which Pelosi assures us in the BEST way to inject money into the economy!!!)


    Lordy. This plan looks like a WIN/WIN situation for everybody....!!!!!


    .
    All except those of us who had to read this comment and wade throiugh your questionable degree of "humor". Hook !

    Sounds like you're talking about super rich Corporate America fat cats. Either that or illegal alien invaders.

    2) Firefighters agree to their wages. Howard's take is based on how much he makes for his clients. If your AGREEMENT WITH ME is I get 10% of what ever I make for you and I make you a million my commission would be 100k If this guy is good enough to manage 10 Billion in assets and he increases the value be a billion he's gonna make alot of money

    3) your concept of fair is emotobabble that has no relevance to the market or anything else objective for that matter.
    You said it all in your last sentence > "...relevance to the market..". i don't give a rats ass about "the market" or any market. All that is a scheme designed to create and maintain plutocracy. What I'm talking about is fairness and that as a guideline, not some stupid "market". And your concept of fair has no relevance to fairness. It is only related to that market thet you worship. Get the right people into DC, and the whole market idea is sawdust.

    If you don't like the USA Constitution, and the rights it bestows, there's always Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia. Love it or leave it !

    no I am talking about retirees who think the rest of us ought to pay their way in life

    what is really funny is that you parasite class enablers constantly whine about billionaires yet your schemes really impact the upper middle class the most. why do you bitch about people like Bill Gates when you plan on screwing over your doctor or (assuming you had a job) the guy who once employed you

    YOu whine about the super rich yet your masters' schemes target people making between 200k to a million a year-hardly the super rich but those are the people who are going to get hit the hardest especially if they say built a business then sold it and live off of dividend income. some of those people could see their tax payments DOUBLE so sloths and slackers can continue to pay too little and use lots of government services.
    Maybe some time in the future, you might get into a car accident, become paralyzed from the neck down (like Christopher Reeve). Your insurance company suddenly seeing you as a (big) loss rather than a profit drops you like a hot potato. Then guess what ? You are a "sloth and a slacker", dependent on government and the generosity of the rich (only ones who have the money to pay the taxes to support your mountain of lifetime personal and medical care).
    You better hope they're in a generous mood.

    As for whether people hate or not, you have no clue, and its not your call.
