    that is not even a halfway honest regurgitation of my position.

    I am rather surprised at your employment of such dishonest tactics.

    Your son deserves the right to be a self made man. Please do not emasculate him the way your parents did to you and deny him that valuable experience.

    you have fallen down the rabbit hole and have passed the twilight zone.

    The fact is that lots of folks paid a bigger percentage of their income in federal taxes than the Mitten did.

    LOL-that is a pretty pathetic argument to justify not working hard to leave your son a better life than you have had. Its a great way to justify being a spendthrift.

    I am right, 30 years from now Haymarket junior will be whining that its unfair that his father didn't give him the advantages that his boss had (AKA Turtle III)

    that hole being your claim that you pay more than 14% effective income taxes meaning you earn over 210K year. I find that hilarious

    Which is irrelevant to the point being made about percentage of income in taxation.

    All I remember is how clueless your posts about neologisms were since your rant about death tax did not even meet the definition you constantly trumpeted from WIKI

    no its not. He is a massive contributor. He funds far more government than you do. In sum, he is far more valuable to society than those like you who pay less FIT in a lifetime than he pays in a year
