    that is funny coming from you-willful blindness is no defense and a review of your posts proves the point I made to the newbie

    life is regressive

    paying for food, cars, gasoline, housing etc is "regressive"

    and what is wrong with that? you should pay for value received

    Sorry i don't want to pay 3.60 a gallon for gas is not going to cut it at the local BP station

    or telling the car dealer you ought to pay half as much for a 20K car then a guy who makes twice as much as you do

    and if YOU Truly cannot afford government services you believe you TRULY need, you should not be demanding others pay more and more taxes

    that oozes spite and envy. I don't need your help I have been doing fine dealing with the parasitic left here for close to 6 years. And your other posts suggest you are part of the problem I have noted

    You're obsessed with rich people - they OWE you and everyone else apparently. Here's the list, I've included the links too. Oh and by the way, there were 8 (that's E I G H T) more threads I didn't both with which was a treasure trove of your class warfare ideology, along with donc, rangel, petey, and a few others. Quite the class warfare clan you have going.

    When I look at this stuff all at the same time, it project class hate. You hate rich people. You dislike the tax cuts because it favors rich people. Rich people deserve to pay more to support those who don't have as much - ie., spreading the wealth around. You even claim you're glad to be a socialist in one of the little clips. I mean, are you really now going to deny it and try pulling some nonsense that I'm a liar?

    Just go back and look at every other political cartoon picture you've ever posted in that long thread - 50% or more all have to do with class warfare and ugly rich people or a picture of some rich dude holding bags of money and whatnot.

    Here's the part where you claim it's only 49.9% and not 50% or make some other lame-o excuse. At least be a man and stand up for what you are and admit it. Don't back pedal now - it looks weak and paltry.

    Next time you need a DP reset, I'm your man. Consider yourself set straight. :
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane, but your search and your claim failed. Nowhere are the quotes you claimed I said that the "rich are evil and dastardly", or where I suggest "spreading the wealth around".

    But hey thanks for showing folks once again how dishonest you are!

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Well, I finally got you to admit the Fair tax is regressive! That's a start!
