    The Obama Rosetta Stone

    The Obama Rosetta Stone - WSJ.com

    A "moral" argument. tell me is it "moral" to confiscate one's property when that property was not acquired through illegal means?
    "

    I would like some sort of evidence that every single "evil" rich person did not play by the rules or did not live up to their responsibilities.

    It seems Obama thinks that the responsibility of the rich is to pay for everything he wants.

    No prudent investment in these things were ignored by self aggrandizing politicians more concerned with getting reelected and securing their "legacies" than in doing the right thing.
    when the president said "it's time to do away with childish things" in his inaugural address, he obviously didn't include childish jealousies or class based vindictiveness.

    :lol::lol::lol::lol: That's just hilarious. And when those estiamtes prove to be wrong, what will the president do?

    You guessed it.....raise taxes and not just on the "rich".

    Gee isn't that what I've been saying all along?

    In other words, Obama's ultimate goal is to tell you how much you should be able to earn.

    I hope the superrich are paying you very well for the asskissing you just gave them.

    So in your opinion, every single "super evil, super rich" person somehow broke the law and shirked his responsibilities to acquire his wealth?

    Skull the rich most of the time have so many ways of getting out of paying taxes most of the time they dont even pay the 30+ percent they are suppose to. So why are you whining about it.

    That's why we should have a flat tax on all income with only a few basic deductions, the mortgage interest deduction not being one of them.

    You are obtuse.

    Did you miss the part where taxing the evil rich won't bring in the revenue needed for Obama's vision?

    If you think you won't be paying higher taxes, you, sir, are an idiot.

    Just as many "good" poor people broke the law and shirked their responsibilities as those "Bad" rich people did.

    The top 1% of earners make 22% of the wealth, but pay 40% of the taxes. In fact, it was 36% before President Bush's tax cuts. Our tax system is progressive.
