WHY?

Fact: The top 1% of wage earners in the United States pay 36% of income taxes.

Question: Is that "fair?" Why?

Question: How much of "rich" peoples' earnings should be confiscated in taxes?

Question: In this land of opportunity, why aren't you rich, if you want to be?

Question: If you were rich, how much would you be willing to give to the federal government?

Question: If a person is able to work (able meaning in as good or better condition as Steven Hawking), why shouldn't he/she?

Question: If an able person refuses to work, why should he/she receive a penny from you and me?

Fact: 40% of Americans pay no taxes at all.

Question: Why?

Question: Do you believe 40% of Americans are as bad off or worse than Steven Hawking?




Question: How can you be that dumb?

Since President BO (the Child President) took office, his "inherited" unemployment rate of 8% is still above 9%.

President BO (the Child President) promised it would not exceed 8%.

Question: Have the policies he espoused brought unemployment down to 8% or less at any time during his presidency?

Question: Has he been able to reduce unemployment with his "stimulus" packages (remember those "created" and "saved" jobs)?

Question: AT A CERTAIN POINT, DON'T YOU NEED TO ADMIT IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR FOCUS AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH YOUR POLICIES?




The Chevy Volt was hailed as GM's (and President BO-the Child President's) most wonderful invention ever.

Question: Why were only 2870 of them sold so far this year (and most of those to the government)?

Question: Why were there only 125 sold last month?

Question: Why were 16,000 Hummers (sort of the opposite of a Volt) sold in the first quarter of 2011?

Question: Why were 2,257,761 SUVs and Crossovers sold Year To Date?

Almost every one of President BO's (the Child President) policies has failed to deliver what he told us they would deliver.

Question: How effective is he as a president (even when his Party had control of the House, the Senate and the Executive branch)?

sue: Thanks. My point with Hawking, of course, was that he contributes to society by working, even though he is severely "handicapped."

You can't imagine how many roofers I know who work daily and collect disability, "food stamps" and Medicaid benefits.

I have reported one to authorities to no avail.

Color me angry, because I work daily to help pay for these frauds.

---------------

No. They have far more than 36% of the income.

Answer: Because unlike the Chevy (re)Volt(ing), Hummers, SUVs and Crossovers can get out of their own way. Because unlike the Chevy (re)Volt(ing) they can pass another car without cutting their Distance To Empty by half or more. Because unlike a Chevy (re)Volt(ing) Hummers, SUVs and Crossovers are actually useful for more than short-distance commuting, and you don't have to buy a second car if you want to drive more than forty miles in one direction. Because unlike the Chevy (re)Volt(ing) you can actually drive a Hummer, SUV or Crossover to work and back several times before it becomes a large paperweight attached to your house by an extension cord. Oh, wait - Hummers, SUVs and Crossovers don't need to be attached to your house by an extension cord (this offer not valid in really cold weather when the oil preheater is the only thing that lets you start in the morning).

So, Ducky, by that argument, are you proposing they pay 95% of the taxes, or that we should all be taxed at 36%?

How about everyone who works pays a fair share (say, 10%) and thus increase the amount of tax revenue flowing into the government coffers?

How about the government back off on business killing regulations and allow the free market and enterprising people create jobs that allow more people to earn money, thereby allowing MORE tax revenue from many more job holders (at 10%) to flow into the government coffers?

How about those who are ABLE TO WORK (again, more physically fit than Stephan Hawking) actually get off the dole and onto the streets looking for work? Even picking up trash and selling it to the recycler is more meaningful than sucking on the public teat for generations!

Question, does "Ducky" really think when he writes?

Joe said...

Ducky: "No. They have far more than 36% of the income."

So what?

Are you jealous of them?

How come you aren't one of "them?"

Are yo one of "them?"

Aren't you smart enough to earn about $300,000.00?

Just hink of it...if you DID you could help pay for my wife's insurance that she is going to be forced to buy.

Ducko, you don't seem to be able to understand the simplest truths.

What happened to you to take away your ability to reason.

You think you're reasoning, but your 4 + 4 always comes us -2.1.

I'm deeply sorry for you.

Cary: You are 100% right about the Hummers and SUVs vs Volt.

And, of course, I LOVE your flat tax position.

Robert: No.

sue: sue: As you know you are my favorite "liberal" blogger, and besides, I think you are a nice person...even though you don't want to be.
