    The tax cut did nothing for the poor, did nothing to create employment in the USA, it contributed to the deficit and now the middle class, the poor and elderly are being told that they have to give up programs that helped them survive and those that benefited the most don't want to give up the tax break.

    Your posts seem to suggest that your politics change depending on who beats up your idiotic posts the most effectively.

    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.
    NOt relevant. the point is-existing within a certain distance of a wealthy person does not entitle you to any of that man's wealth

    Cowardness is hiding behind your wealth or social position when it's time to defend your freedoms
    the poorest people aren't the ones making up most of the military so your rant is silly. and its stupid to send off some guy at harvard medical school to be in the infantry. once a draft is enacted, individual rights no longer matter since they are subservient to the "common good" and the common good should be concerned with efficient allocation of talent meaning very smart people should be assigned to tasks that require brilliance while cannon fodder can be staffed with dullards

    this thread is all about another outlet for those who are upset that they are not successful to whine about those who are

    Can you go a single thread without accusing those who disagree with you of being envious? Seriously, it's a childish argument.

    Uhh... dude. If you want to discuss religion, start your own thread. Like, we're like... uhh... whining about the wealthy scabby bastards in this thread. MMkkay? Stop trying to derail the thread.
    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.

    No he's a rich old **** who's going to die soon, and is trying to get into Gods good graces.
