    Nor would any of their binding legal documents. People tend to forget that the beginnings of the American Revolution started over a tax on tea, on ****ing tea. And these same tax everything advocates want to lay claim on monies even King George III didn't have the nerve to touch.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I suspect some of these tax hikers are mad that they weren't able to help string up Nathan Hale!

    I was telling you that I know no such thing about the facts you claimed about Romney and other tax payers.


    from your 231

    you know damn well that other tax hikers claim that working class people are paying higher federal tax rates than Romney which is based on a dishonest comparison
    The fact is that you use yourself constantly here as a model and castigate others who you feel do not measure up when you are totally and completely in the dark about the personal finances of others here that you pretend to speak about as if you are their person CPA. Its dishonest in the extreme.

    that is silly Haymarket

    what we have here are

    1) those of us who are targeted for tax hikes and tired of being told by others we don't pay enough

    2) those who pay less than we do who say we ought to pay more

    you want to take more of my property from me for political reasons while I already pay my fair share and you get upset when I say I am tired of being told I need to pay more

    Your own words and my response to them in the previous post show that it is 100% accurate and not silly at all.

    Tough. Get used to it or emigrate elsewhere where you don't have to suffer through the indignity of other citizens exercising their rights as Americans.


    you want to take more of my property from me for political reasons while I already pay my fair share and you get upset when I say I am tired of being told I need to pay more
    Until you pay what others pay on the same amount from wages or salary, you have not begun to pay anything approaching a FAIR SHARE.

    ah. "fairness". so, for example, do you think it is "fair" for all of my uncles' employees to lose their jobs?

    more moronic from each according to their ability nonsense--that is the only way you can claim someone paying several hundred thousand in federal taxes and close to a hundred thousand in state income taxes and sales taxes isn't paying a "fair share"

    I pay 35% on wages THE HIGHEST rate
    I pay 15% on investment income-the HIGHEST RATE
    I pay the highest rate on Ohio State income taxes

    but thanks for clarifying your position. its the total rate of taxes that makes fair share not actual dollars
