    I can't think of a single better reason to repeal personal income tax. Whatever anyone makes is not the damned business of the federal gubbamint.

    This should be the ad for repealing the 16th Amendment

    Even if that were all true, so what? There are no oligarchies here. No laws against people earning money. The whole fair distribution issue is a bogus wedge by the left.

    Bank robbers earn money too. They work hard at it. Only they haven't paid lobbyist to make it legal.

    No, they don't. As usual, you have no understanding of the topic. Bank robbers STEAL money. See the difference? Of course you don't, you big dope.

    Wall Street passes out mortgages to anyone with a signature.

    Wall Street bundles the mortgagees into "securities".

    Wall Street sells the mortgages to people overseas.

    Wall Street insures the "securities.

    The "securities" tank.

    The investors from overseas lose their money.

    The people with the mortgages lose their houses.

    The insurance companies pay Wall Street and go bankrupt.

    Wall Street gets rich.

    All perfectly legal in the "deregulated" Wall Street. Hey, they have to be allowed to "make money".

    Why this isn't "stealing"? Because it's "legal". I guess that makes me a dope. Because to me, it looks EXACTLY like "stealing".

    Just as gay marriage and abortion are bogus wedges by the right.
