    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Demagogues will always cavil at some people making very large amounts of money.

    Idiotic quote. Income tax rates/policy have nothing to do with "national prosperity."

    No, see. If we soak the rich and redistribute the money then everyone does better. That's the idea anyway.

    How much money has a rich person ever taken from you?
    How much money has a rich person prevented you from investing in a business?

    1927. Just before the great crash and Great Depression.


    See a pattern?

    Damn straight nothing changes.

    The unnatural concentration of wealth leads to disaster.

    The financial services sector (Wall Street) has taken a great deal from you. It's your fault if you didn't feel their hands in your pockets ripping you off blind.

    Well, take the average salary and wealth of a rich person and deduct my salary and wealth and that's what they're preventing me from having. It's mine, dammit! All mine! And I want it now!

    It was actually two year before the Crash and several more before the Great Depression. It was a Great depression because of Democratic policies that turned a mild recession into the worst in US history.
    Notice that the top 1% paid 95% of taxes then. More than today.
    There was nothing unnatural about it. The opposite in fact. Same as today.
