    being truthful is even more fundamental. you are lying since the rich pay income taxes on all their income while the working class do not. In fact half of the united states pays almost no or no federal income taxes

    The super rich even have access to lawyers for loopholes that are embedded in the system for their benefit (which could possibly be due to their influence and that they shape policy, maybe, who really knows, it's not like data support this), so they pay even less than the aforementioned low amount proportional to their income.
    this is silly-what is the "super rich" anyway?

    I was responding to "woe is me nonsense" from Henrin so it only seemed appropriate.

    and they don't pay a lower rate on investment income

    try to disprove it if you want

    you are pretending investment income is the same as earned income which of course is wrong

    So they stole from people or were they given it by those individuals?

    Since that is reality then your point that I have no point is pointless.
    Not really unless the avenue they took to gain their wealth is similar.

    I'm sure you have been very specific about all your herefores, wherefores, howfores, and whatnots to have made legally correct statements - but it's really quite amusing none the less.

    You never bother to prove your idiotic drivel. Do you think you're "special"?
