    It's nothing like consensual sex versus rape.

    Your posts imply that you see wealth accumulation like in the Old West, where enterprising capitalists had to make their fortune from an uncompromising frontier. In contemporary times, it is more like the supermarket. The amount of risk and effort isn't comparable.

    Repeal the tax cuts across the board, what does a cut in taxes do for the poor? Without revenues this charade of cutting programs that benefit the poor and elderly will just increase the hardships that they deal with.

    Cowardness is hiding behind your wealth or social position when it's time to defend your freedoms
    Oh the rich will come up with a new thing to get out doing anything for thier country but take ...maybe deferments for acute whining and too much of a load dropped into their shorts...but no matter what the last resort...this time instead of running to canada...they can run to china

    The greed is so thick you could cut it with a knife! They seem perfectly willing to let the economy fail just so then can continue to protect the their tax cuts.

    The ignorance and misinformation is so thick I need hip waders! If only some of you could intelligently and honestly discuss what the tea party members are about... I know that's asking a lot and is doomed to failure, but... hope springs eternal.
    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.

    The thread is - What purpose did the tax cuts for the wealthiest serve? We were discussing the greed of the wealthy. If you would like to start a thread on the tea party agenda, knock yourself out!

    Yes I know what you were discussing... more of your Class Warfare line of complaints as Ipast identified the "teaparty pigs", to which you lent your complaint about them allowing the economy to fail. Denying your discussion to exclude me pointing out your BS now Catawba? Just don't have a good argument or do you just not want to admit you were off topic as well?

    If you go back an look at the post I was responding to was talking about the wealthy. The "they" I was referring to were the wealthy, in a thread about the wealthy.

    Go figure huh?
