    No. That is not what I want.

    Then what do you want? Do you want to force an employer to pay employees more than their market value?

    I haven't said what I want... I am merely pointing out that rich people make too much money and that poor people, in many instances, don't make enough. That scares people and I understand that better than most as I was raised in a wealthy family.

Those stores have to be paid for, developers don't just build huge stores and give them away to retailers.
    Haven't we dis-proven trickle down economics yet?
    Haha. Panty Hawk. I would watch that show.

    How much is too much in your world? I was never scared by someone else having more than me when growing up...

    Beautiful women get too much male attention and hideous women get too little male attention. OK. We've both noticed some pattern. Now how are we going to define what constitutes "too much" and "too little?"

    My father was the CFO of a Fortune 50 company. I know what he made - it was a lot. I know how hard he worked - it was a lot more than I do.

    $500,000 a year isn't really that much money. What should a payroll clerk in a company make if the CEO is only making $500,000? Half of that?

    When one goes to Costco and fills their basket with what they want, it is right and proper for them to evaluate the benefit of the items with the price they pay. But that does not apply to a citizens tax obligation.
    why do your posts constantly and dishonestly confuse an opinion with a fact? I argue that the tax system should be based on the same principles of most everything else in life-if you want something, you pay for it.

    and its dishonest for your posts to assume I don't know how the present system works
