    I sure do. Think you can show me in the tax code where the effective rate is reduced by deductions and write-offs, or did you read that in an op-ed?

    Do you think there are instructions in the tax code on how to bypass them, or how to buy a Governors campaign and get millions in local tax breaks as a result? Before unions it was very common place for whole towns and states to be bought off and run for corporate interest. Without unions to stop them, that is what we will return to.

    I sure do love the whole "i'm getting screwed, so everyone else should get screwed too. It's only fair" meme they've managed to install in the Foxis minds. I guess that's easier to swallow than the "your guys have been lying to your face while f*cking you in the ass" truth. Turn the middle class against itself. Divide and conquer. Sun Tsu, "The Art of War". Oldest trick in the book, accomplished with the latest in propaganda techniques. You conservatives are aware that parroting this nonsense makes you look like a buncha lickspittle dogs, right?

    Surely there's a formula used to reduce the effective rate with deductions and write-offs. Right?

    I think it would better that you show me, in the tax code, where tax rates actually go down, because of deductions and write-offs. It's your claim, not mine; it's not for me to back it up. That's your job.

    You have been shown.
    You have been taught.
    You have been educated.
    You have had the information presented to you.
    You have had the facts handed to you.
    You have had the data given to you.

    There are none so blind as those who will not see.

    I get it, you're one of the people who don't like to pay taxes. I guess the hundred of public services that benefit you, directly or indirectly, every single day all just magically happen.

    So, please tell name one privately owned business that makes no use of public services--including roads, streets, police, fire... Is their home office on the moon?
    Second highest salaries on average among teachers in the United States.

    And you're blowing it out of proportion and putting words in my mouth. Where did I say I didn't support taxes for public services such as roads, bridges etc. I have no problem with support a local police force, or firefighters, who help could be to my benefit anyday. However, me paying a majority of a teachers pension is not the direction I want my tax money going to. Afterall, how much of their tax money goes toward private pensions? Oh wait...
