    Nice attempt to dodge the reality of the tax preferences for the rich with this nonsense about "earned income" - what ever the hell that is. News bulletin: its all income if it goes in your pocket.

    I have never argued tax policy.... I simply told you that you were wrong in assuming people on get tax refunds based on the amount of money overpaid. Again, you were wrong and still are. You argued with me for pages, and kept insisting you knew more about taxes because you once took some tax law classes. Now your calling me dishonest and mistaken... lol.

    I cannot recall any other poster bringing those two up. You seem to have a fixation on them-I had never heard of the former until you starting constantly spewing claims about him.

    you seem to think its wrong for capital gains to be taxed at different schedules than earned income but the earned income schedule was created by the same laws that create investment income rates

    in other words, your argument is stupid

    if the progressive rates are proper then so are the rates on investment income

    Ron Paul has some good ideas He is a bit nutty personally and his foreign policy is a bit too naive for my taste but he's far far far better than Obama

    so tell me what would Mr Paul's position on taxes be

    So now its my fault that you and some others here are not as educated and informed as you could be?

    if the progressive rates are proper then so are the rates on investment income
    Do you know the difference between an apple and a banana?

    Do you know the difference between a volleyball and a baseball?

    Do you know the difference between an elm and an oak?

    Just because things may fall into a category does not mean they are the same. Progressive tax rates are one distinct and separate thing. Preferential tax rates designed to screw the progressive rates to benefit the wealthy are an entirely different thing.

    You have made this fundamental mistake many times before and each time you have been schooled on it. So why you continue to make it over and over and over again can only be chalked up to willful belief over reality.
