No, I do not. If you can explain such in a reasonable and helpful manner, by all means, do so. If you going use your typical rants about ignorant people, then please refrain. I am certainly open to understanding the situation of capital gains further. And by the way, if your response is "look it up yourself" please don't bother responding.
Sorry, I responded anyway.

You will need to do your own research. I've explained it on Topix more than once, I do not feel the need to do it again. Kinda like addressing tax items, not worth the effort and too many people argue the facts.

I do promise, though, that the rationale will make some sense, as it's a "positive influence" by those that reduced it from prior rates...

Consider this idea: if you were picking fruit in someone's orchard and were told you could keep as much fruit as you wanted (the orchard you're in is limitless) except that you had to pay a 15% fee (of what you picked), would you work harder and longer than if that 15% fee was (say) 40%? You probably will do it anyway to keep 60%, but I'm expecting the effort would be greater if you were to keep 85%...Perhaps you'd invest in some machinery to help you, some additional help, etc....

Israel is not the 51st state of America. When MY country is attacked their is an end to isolation. By the way the Chinese are soon going to stop lending money to those in America who believe we are such good examples and should be the country who CONTROLS the world. Clean up your own act and STOP sitting on your little judgement seats here in this country. If that is not good enough for republicans then they can hire their own army with THEIR money and solve all the world's problems. The election in 2008 and 2012 showed us that Americans are not going to be suckered into another war by media propaganda. Now the 33% of Americans who are republicans. You are way outnumbered!
The election wasn't about the war. The election was about the economy and guess what? The dumbed down electorate voted part of the problem back in. Enjoy.

It's quite interesting that all these erudite individuals in here (unregistered, of course) can't answer simple questions that would show they don't know what they're talking about. You're using the racism word quite freely, I'm wondering if you really know what it means. Probably not, but that's not surprising.

Of all the times I've seen racism or racist claims in these types of posts, I'm thinking there is only one post that was blatantly racist, but it was obviously someone trying to stir things up.

BTW, you might want to research the difference between racism and bigotry.

This ought to be good.
Tell us all how and you, and you alone, when you were in your momma's belly, escaped long enough to personally build the hospital, and trained the doctors that you brought you into this world.
Tell us how as a child, you, and you alone, built the grade school and the high school and paid for the teachers that educated you.
Tell us how you, and you alone, built a navy, and hired, equipped and sent our sailors and troops out to defend the country,
Tell us how you, and you alone, built the roads, highways, and interstate highways you, your family, friends, employees customers, and everyone else drove on for the last 60 years,
Tell us how you, and you alone, hired, equipped, trained, and paid the law enforcement officers and fire department personnel that protect you, your family and your business,
Tell us how nobody in your family ever benefited from a 40 hour work week, overtime, safe working conditions, or child labor laws, or us when you last built a hospital, college, grade school,
Tell us how neither you, nor anyone in your family, or your employees, ever benefited from Social Security, Medicare, or the V.A.,
Tell us how you, and you alone, built and paid to maintain the electrical grid, the TVA lakes, the national parks, the State Parks.
Jeez man, stop making ridiculously ludicrous statements that cause rational people to wonder if Right Wingers were dropped on their heads as small children.
Here on Planet Earth - Obama was right - "You didn't build that".
Doesn't it suck to be confronted by someone who actually saw the video of the statement Right Wingers like to take out of context.
Kinda shows how dishonest, or just uninformed Right Wingers are, doesn't it.
Now stop embarrassing yourself quoting Obama out of context in such an obviously false and deceitful way. Watch the video of the speech, then apologize for having allowed yourself to be used as a tool by 'Ol Rushbo and Hannity.
We'll forgive you.
Gee, you take all the time to type the above, yet you conveniently avoid questions that will expose your clueless views...

And?

"How about we just tax 'me at 50%"

Tax YOU at 50%? LMAO.

Hey, Einstein, you'd be taxing their wealth, not their income. Make up your mind, if you're understanding what you're trying to do...

What are you going to do after you TAKE 50% from those EVIL rich people. How much of a dent does it put in our country's debt? What then? Tax 'em (note the proper spelling) again? Then what? Think these people will stick around?

Amazing you can argue one side of the argument (and not very well at that) yet not address questions posed that expose the weakness of your points...

Typical, yet not unexpected...

Go ahead. Tell us your predictions. Just save us the "I hate Liberals" routine you do 10 times a day. Just lay it out. What is your prediction for the future, and when is it going to happen?
This spending can't be supported. Taxes ARE going up for the MIDDLE CLASS. Paychecks are already smaller. No one seems to know WHAT ALL is covered in Obamacare(remember Pelosi's famous line? She represents your party well.), but how will it be funded? Immigration continues to be a major problem. So far, nothing is being done about that. Umemployment hasn't budged according to the jobs report that came out last week. Housing? Some houses are finally selling but at what price? Certainly not at their former value. This out of control spending just simply can't continue. Let's see if Obama's plan doesn't add ONE DIME to the current debt. Remember: NOT ONE DIME.

When is it going to happen? Um....NOW?

"The last time we had a Republican President he absolutely and utterly destroyed the economy of the United States of America.
Wall Street fell apart, millions and millions of Americans were unemployed and homeless"

So Barney Frank, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, etc. get a free pass? Typical uneducated comment. You know enough to be dangerous.

"Then the Republican Party, right after destroying the country, insulted Americans by putting up the most ridiculous and laughable candidates this country has ever seen. Then they did it again the next election."

+1 Fair points. But, IF you TRULY believe running someone that had no previous experience running anything was a better choice, you're in for quite a debate. BTW, how did that work out for ya?

BTW, McCain was not a good choice, but I don't recall anyone else that would have been acceptable. Romney was not my first choice, nor my second.

"And you REALLY want to complain about the guy who's done a great job getting us back on track?"

LMAO big time. A "great job"? Seriously? Are you paying attention to what's been going on, or are you so anti-Republican that you're missing things (too many to list)? What EXACTLY has he done? Do you know the last time we had a budget? Do you know what the country's debt is and how long it will take to pay down or get to a reasonable level?

"In fact, such a great job that America chose to re-elect him again?"

The takers now outnumber the makers. Santa Claus has shown up early. The clueless outnumber those that understand what's happening. People want to be a socialist country. Around half the country doesn't pay federal income tax. The liberal goal appears to be to have 50.1% of those eligible to vote on welfare.

I have four close friends who are democrats. They know EXACTLY how I feel about Obama and his manipulating narcissism. I have a lot of friends and the rest of them are openly concervative. I prefer to hang around with like minded people. My democrat friends and I don't talk politics. The funny thing is, though, they are complaining about how their insurance costs have gone up and they complain IN FRONT OF ME! I know their checks are lower because I know what they did for a living. They are all retired. Actually, they make wise cracks about the sorry state of things regularly. As far as my mingling with libs, I know I do. As long as they don't run their koolaid drinking delusional junk on me, I'm fine with it.

At a doc appt. this afternoon, while in the waiting room, I overheard two well dressed ladies (they may have been sales reps) discussing taxes and the $16.5 TRILLION deficit. One of them brought up an interesting point that I have not researched, but it very well may be true:

The federal government took in more revenue last year than any prior year. Yet, the deficit grew.

IF that's true, how can anyone (particularly Pelosi AND the clueless and uneducated) think we DON'T have a spending problem? There's not enough tax revenue to cover what we have, yet people want more...

As I just responded to you in another thread -

The Financial Services Moderation Act was authored by Phill Graham , of all things - wait for it - a Texas Republican. A Republican from Iowa introduced it to the House. They did so under pressure from .... wait for it!... Big Banking -(who woulda guessed Republicans doing the will of Big Banking?).

Then there was the Commodities Futures Modernization Act, brought into legislation by .... wait for it.... Phil Graham - A Texas Republican doing the will of his big-money players who pulled his strings.

At that time there were both House and Senate Republican majorities.

Wall Street Deregulation was the result of Texas Republicans and Big Banking. Fact.

Every Republican president since Ronnie Ray-Gun has added trillions to the national debt.

Ask these Right Wingers finally identify a single Republican president - who offered a balanced budget - or who didn't raise the national debt by trillions and trillions.

Then listen to the silence.

Can anyone seriously question that President Cheney - er - Bush - in eight years nearly destroyed not just America but most, if not all the industrialized world.

Thanks Bush/Cheney for the unfounded tax cuts for the rich;
The destruction of the American economy;
3,000 dead Americans under the WTC;
The destruction of the national banking system;
Three wars we never paid for;
The shredding of the Constitution; and
The creation of the largest transfer of wealth from the middle class to the richest people on Earth.

Yep- we can trust Republicans - their record is so spotless.
