    Whine, whine, whine about how tough it is on the rich paying historically low tax rates. Your posts sound like a very pitiful broken record that everyone is tired of hearing,

    your parasitic rantings are worthless. You constantly howl that people who already juice the public teat you suckle from need to give you more to suck on. its time for you to cast off the scourge of dependency and envy and become a maker rather than a taker

    The trick, turtle, is to not only take other people's stuff, but to try to make them feel guilty about not wanting their stuff taken. For the victim, it's a no win situation. Either you are relieved of your property, or you are labelled a whiny bitch. "Oh, you don't know how good you have it. We're not taking nearly as much as we could."

    Don't let the looters get inside your head. Always remember that THEY are the ones attacking, they are the ones acting in an uncivilized manner, they are the ones taking the property of their fellow man.

    The government taking money from me, to give to you, is just as much theft as you holding a gun to my head and taking it yourself. Even if the government is taking it for you, the result is the same. The end does not justify the means, no matter how much you rationalize that it's *right*.

    I'm not leaving nor did I express the desire to. You were the one who has whined to high heaven about the vast majority of people here.

    Then...fire the assholes who now take your money. But...that's too simple of a solution isn't it? Seeing as how our system of politics and government is pretty much corrupt, the next assholes who take their place still have all the laws in place that allows them to be corrupt.
