Has nothing to do with it. The vast majority would be rich whether genius or retarded. However, they don't STAY rich by being stupid. Although honestly, with the way this country is setup, that bar is set pretty damn low. Think pro sports players, rappers, and toothless lottery winners.
Those constitute a flash in the pan. Not a real good comparison. Romney could possibly live comfortable on dividends and his salary alone. The principle stays intact. Plus the fact if he wins the election he will continue to draw his salary for life. Now I call that a sucessful businessman. BTW..separate the word setup. A setup is a noun. Would someone constantly grading your grammar irritate you, even when it is possibly a typo? No one else seems to mind a simple error on any site except (oh yes) you. Give it a rest. It's just rude.

Romney would be rich right now regardless of any action taken. Same for the large percentage of "successful businessmen". He hasn't done anything in his life that requires working harder than millions of poor people in this country (who don't have nepotism and daddy's money to fall back on) do every day. He is 100% dependent on the silver spoon and would be pretty much guaranteed to be another nobody without it. He is not aware of this fact, and apparently neither are you.

As for typos, I don't care. I make them all the time. I thought you actually believed that's how you spell it since I've seen you spell it that way elsewhere. My bad. Might want to let your knight in shining ineptitude know that you disagree with his assessment of your spelling being just fine and that you did make a typo.

BTW, I have no issue with people pointing out my typos. If it's a bad habit, I can learn from it and improve, so it's a good thing. I would only have an issue if it was the basis of any argument. Notice how I didn't make it a basis of mine?

I'm always busy. Just like the challenge to be honest. This doesn't change my life one way or the other. I laugh, I pretend to be upset at times. Just funny antics. No more to me than a game of checkers. Just left the Air Force 6/11 after 6 years in. Like the R&R. I've taken on way worse new boots than is on here.

LOL! I just call it a woman's right to free speech in a man's world. If I took the world seriously I'd go insane.

Yes I agree, this discussion about a hotel foreclosure is ridiculous . We have multi-billion dollar corporations frisking the middle class for millions in taxes they avoid. What's your take on that Ms. Dove?

I don't think the people realize how much money you have to make annually to be considered middle class.(Google it). To people like me they are still the rich folks. All some politicians worry about is making it easy on the middle class. What about the poverty line citizens that make up a large percentage of the country. Many who think they are middle class are only above the poverty line. People who have money find all kinds of loop holes to avoid paying taxes on it. Too many tax shelters.

What do you think of a straight across the board tax percentage wise for everyone? No matter what you make you pay the same percentage of it as the rest. If it's $20K or $200MI. that you make.

You must have read Bortz book? Or listen to his radio show ? Yes it technically would work if implemented properly, that's a big if.

Flat taxes only make sense with a corresponding large flat deduction and elimination of any and all loopholes for any and all sources of income. With the current cost of living, a deduction along the lines of $35-40k per tax filing individual and dependent would probably be appropriate. This would essentially only tax "disposable" income and allow every person living in the country to be able to afford a decent standard of living and wouldn't punish small business owners or people of lower income who want to actually save money. If these things happen, it makes perfect sense. But elimination of the loopholes will probably never happen without a concerted effort to remove money from politics.

It would certainly stop a lot of the problems. In reality tho, I don't expect it to ever happen. Politicians make promises to these big corporations to help them get in office, then after they get in they have to pay the piper. To heck with what the people want.
