No it's just a fact of a progressive tax system. More spendiing = spending mostly more the rich people's tax money. It is what it is. Best system ever invented, too. You seem to be enjoying it so far.
The most unfair tax system ever conceived actually and no I'm not enjoying it at all.

Fairness would be a single rate flat tax for everyone, no deductions, no credits, no special tax deals for anyone.

Yeah, you have the luxury of saying that, knowing it won't change. And it won't change ever, because it is the best system ever invented. You're welcome, so to speak.

I say it because it is true.

That competes with the gold standard for stupidest economic idea, in the 21st century.
Pull our head out of your ass and learn about the difference in marginal and effective rates.

Yes. Probably a stalemate. Taiwan is 100 miles from the coast. We could pick off transports like sitting ducks. So China would rain missiles. Can't land 200000 troops, when your own missiles and bombs are falling on them.

This risks China just obliterating Taiwanese cities, à la Putin.
Which risks the US and Taiwan levelling Chinese cities raining missiles and bombs down on them.

Putting Troops in Taiwan 🇹🇼 is not wise and not because I love China 🇨🇳 so much but it could actually ignore the World War Putin is wishing for…

It all ties together, so if China invaded Taiwan there isn’t much the U.S. can do except sanctions and tariffs on China…

i would think they wouldnt.....it would destroy what they have built up over the last few decades...
It could also be that the Chinese government caused the COVID outbreak because their economy is on the rocks.

Lol. Expansionist desires…lol. Really? What countries have they expanded to?

We have no credibility. When our government invades nations with impunity, you think we have credibility. Lol.

Think better.
They currently lack an expeditionary capability necessary for such a sea campaign but they are rapidly building up same and have been for a decade while slowly setting the table for future such actions.




The US doesn't launch wars of conquest, we haven't in a hundred years.

Where does it say that?

They had shared bank accounts and Hunter was paying his bills for the last decade.
