    As Jon Stewart said, "Please call now to help these poor, helpless, going instinct super rich, by calling now to make sure their taxes dont go up from 35% to 39.6%.. So please call now."

    The joke made more sense when I realized you meant "extinct".

    THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A WORKING CLASS. If the people who comprise it now do not want that status, they can quit - others will come up to take their place. Quit acting and arguing like it's some tablecloth you can yank out from underneath that will cause all the wealthy dishes to fall and break. This whole pro-proletariat bullsnot is really beginning to irk me. I have to put up with it from all these damned teenaged socialists and pseudo-Marxists. I can't take another source.

    Workers of the world unite...and shut your yaps.
    Yea,things are going to be a lot better for your under Dicator Perry, Hope you will be happy.

    What's going to change for me? Is my office going to lose or gain a little air conditioning? Is my desk going to be bigger or smaller? Will I lose or gain a couple dollars in my direct deposit account every 2 weeks?

    Quite honestly, I'll just be thrilled when that piece of crap is out of office. Get some corporations hiring again, and then maybe I'll jump to a better ship with a higher salary.

    For those interested in cutting costs, the elderly have come up with a few ideas.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I think you shouldn't have a family if you can only get a job that pays 20K or less.....Thats a personal choice and people dont always make the best life choices eh?

    And let me ask you something, do you think you could support your family if you could only get a job that pays less than $20,000 a year, and then have to pay 20%+ of that to the government? I object to putting someone who already is in poverty that much further bellow the poverty line.

    Which is why the poor should pay a lower tax rate and the rich, who can afford it, should pay a higher rate.

    I think you have found the perfect add for Dictator Perry's campaign. But I got a good laugh out it. Thanks

    why is it that so many "poor" people who can't afford healthcare or can't afford to go to college or can't afford whatever, always seem to be able to afford cigarettes and beer and gold teeth and gold chains and 15 coon dogs and spinning rims to put on a POS chrysler le baron and $200 in lotto scratchers every month?

    good priorities...many of them don't haz 'em
