Re: Taxing the rich
"Tax the fuck outta them bitches" should be someone's election slogan.

This is why I could never be a politician.

Re: Taxing the rich
I'm not ignoring this thread, just real busy (not to mention seriously uninformed when it comes to economic matters) .

Not enough hours, and all that...

Got a light?

The Bush tax cuts that have all the richie-poos up in arms(no pun intended, think NIN) were supposed to have expired 2 years ago. At that was according the "their" rules. Cream Pi indeed. The Prince song. Or something.


In regards to Deckard's post above: Married people are weird.

Yeah, to me, too. The problem is that those guys only listen to numbers, not feelings. Basing arguments on facts is much easier than basing them on something 'ringing pretty true'. That's why challenging their 'vital' assumptions (vital to business, not life, that is) is always a pain in the self-trained Internet researcher's bum.
