    Wall Street tax has a great deal of merit: Pelosi | Reuters

    This is the same b!tch who SPENT nearly 3000 US dollars on flowers. Democrats have a lot of ideas how to tax everybody but they don't have a glue how to create job after spending 2 T dollars.

    If/when this comes down I see visions of "It's a Wonderful Life" and the infamous mad dash to the bank to withdraw all their money...

    2008 bank failures all over again :rolleyes:

    Um, PatriotsReign has asked that we all refrain from blaming Democrats or Republicans for everything and anything.

    And a mod responds to a thread calling the 3rd in line to the Prez a b!tch, without stopping it... something is wrong here.

    The people get what they deserve, those are the filthy scum they voted for so now they have to live with them, Obama, the old bag Pelosi, and that gang of grinning pigs that are always sniffing around behind her
    (schumer etc) are going to screw this country and the people so bad that even Hollywood and Katie Couric will vote Republican in 2012.

    TROOPS ARE STILL DYING AT THE HANDS OF THE SAVAGE WHERE DID ALL THE WAR PROTESTERS GO

    A PRISON CAN BE CLOSED AND IT'S INMATES TRANSFERED IN TWO WEEKS, GITMO IS STILL OPEN.

    GET BUSH (thats all they wanted) NOW LOOK WHAT WE GOT.

    Yay!! I finally convinced someone!

    Let's say for grins & giggles that we can blame someone for an terrible failed policy. Ok, what then?

    If we laid out every single bad policy for the past 100 years, what would we have? It would not prove either party is any better than the other, now would it.

    I guess I've made it clear what I'm against. Let me tell you what kind of discussion I would love to see more of. It's really quite simple. How about if we try discussing SOLUTIONS?

    Ah, never mind....what good are solutions?

    It's missing the point entirely - political solutions are always based on what you are trying to achieve which is always based on ... ideology.

    Want to concentrate wealth? Lower capital gains, reduce anti-trust enforcement, and eradicate or lower estate taxes. Want to spread the wealth? Institute progressive taxation, build social programs, enforce corporate taxation, and raise the minimum wage.

    You see? All solutions are contingent on the political ideals. This no left/no right idea is jest really perplexing and not at all grounded in political reality.

    So Apple if you were to substitute the word expand for the word concentrate and the word destroy for distribute you would have had an accurate post. You need to avoid those marxist professors who have never created any wealth in their lives.

    You're missing the point entirely - not surprising though.

    You finally listed some real issues which lay a solid foundation for discussion. When was the last time we had a thread that discussed solutions?

    All I see is "republicans did this" and "democrats did that" BS. Of course solutions are ideologically based, but at least we can discuss them without pointing fingers like a bunch of children.

    That has been my point all along...welcome aboard!

    Personally, I don't want to GIVE any more of MY money to our gov't. I pay enough taxes right now. It's taken me 28 years of hard work to get where I am today. I'm not wealthy at all, but by gov't standards, I'd be willing to bet they'd try to throw me in with the wealthy.

    I HIGHLY doubt we have anyone who is looking to go Marxist since that system has been proven a failure.

    Thank God we finally learned that a person who puts parts together on an assembly line does not deserve to make $80K/yr and retire at age 55-60! You get paid for your value relative to the population. Now, if we can only get CEO pay down to a reasonable level we'd be heading in the right direction!

    Who on earth would want a system where everyone gets the same?

    Answer: Very, very few indeed!

    Get Ready For A "Democrat War Tax"

    Imagine Bush trying to pull that one off.

    The more the gov't raises my taxes, the more money I'm going to make "under the table". I refuse to pay any additional taxes without compensating myself....whether I do it legally or otherwise.

    In that case, I really, really don't want to hear any more whining from you or anyone else about illegal aliens and how they come over here, work and don't pay taxes.

    Really.

    :rofl: You associate me with illegal aliens? There you go showing your superior intellectual savvy once again! Here's a hint: I DO PAY TAXES!

    I don't complain about them not paying taxes, I complain that we actually have the nerve to spend my tax dollars on them!

    I guess YOU feel you should just pay whatever the gov't says you should pay! Just join that flock of sheep over yonder on the hill and walk lock-step in usison with them.

    Maybe I want to keep the part of my tax debt that actually goes to helping illegal immigrants! :D

    If you don't like it....well, too bad!

    You better get used to it because a lot of small business might end up doing the same thing. People like Real World can easily cut deals with customers in order to get a check under the table. Although he prolly wouldn't admit it here.

    Good for you, if illegal aliens don't pay taxes we shouldn't either.

    Harry, here's another "ad-hominen" general attack for you....

    "ANYONE WHO WANTS TAXES ON THE MIDDLE-CLASS TO BE INCREASED IS AN IDIOT"

    Yep, it takes a whole lot of superiour intellectual savvy to know that breaking a law is breaking a law - regardless of if you do it by halves or by wholes.

    I don't necessarily associate you with just illegal aliens, however, I associate you with any one of a number of thieves, criminals and ex-public officials who make a practice out of income tax evasion.

    They pay taxes, too - just not all of them. I'm sure they justify it in their little heads, too. Just like you do - just like Tom Daschle did, and Tim Geithner did and Reverend Moon did and Spiro Agnew did and
    Leona Helmsley did.

    Nice aspirations you have there, PR, keep up the good work.

    Thank you my la...ah, thank you so much.

    I once made $40K in one year under the table! And that was while I had a full-time job! Not bad for a guy like me, huh?

    BTW....were any of those people you listed democrats?:rolleyes:
