    No.

    With regard to the bolded text, it's highly debatable if that change has been for the good of the public, which is what you are suggesting, yes? It certainly wasn't done exclusively for the the public good, if at all.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Yes, he has provided a lot of value to a lot of people. Using tax-provided services and infrastructure to do so. And increasingly in his own life as he enjoys the fruits of his labors.

    He uses the things taxes pay for. He uses them more than most people. He should therefore pay taxes. What is so crazy about that?
    If you try to justify taxes based on what people use than how can you justify ONE MAN paying more Federal income taxes than 60 million? that destroys your idiobabble-because Zuckerman does not use as much as the 60 million, he provides more value than the 60 million yet he pays more fed income taxes than all of them combined. he is subsidizing their parasitic activity

    that is a silly response bankrupt of logic. thousands of people have jobs or make more income and thus pay more taxes due to Zuckerman. shouldn't he get a rebate for that?

    the rich usually provide value that is something the parasite mentality never understands

    but he should not pay more federal income tax than millions who use the infrastructure and pay nothing. He is vastly over taxed based on either what he uses or the value the receives vs the value he provides

    You highlighted the part I disagreed with. Not you personally. The simple fact is that any degree of success is built partially off the success and resources provided by others. S&M is right that no man is an island.

    existing within a certain distance of me in no way justifies me having to pay for your existence though

    You are correct. But I doubt anyone but a very small minority uses this as reasoning though.

    popularity is not a concern when discussing the truth. I don't owe someone something merely because they happened to be born in the same geopolitical area as I reside in. DOing well, being successful is benefiting society without having to pay high taxes just so the sloths and the slugs can live without paying for their own existence

    I agree somewhat. I believe we, as a community have a moral obligation to each other, and it is enough of a moral obligation that it is justified to be coded into law. This does not mean paying for someone just because they exist though as everyone also has a moral obligation to do what they can for themselves. This, I believe, should be coded into law as well, as both things are just plain good sense from a community perspective as well as a personal one. If you wish to delve into truth, which is always a subjective subject, we could do that I guess, but I don't see it going anywhere.

    Also, none of this discussion addresses me earlier point.

    He is taxed an appropriate amount. Without those millions of people having the ability to afford computers and internet access, Zuckerberg would make nothing. Next.
