You people make me laugh. We had 15 years of the redistribution of wealth from the bottom up to the top and you act like the "wealthy" are being taken advantage of. You really don't have a leg to stand on.
It's wayyyy past time to restore tax rates for the richest Americans to the levels of the 1990s when the economy saw rapid growth. That would not be a bad thing at all.
You already have, plus adding the ObamaKKKare taxes...so what's next...

Who told you that you cannot become a millionaire in the United States?
Who?
Your interpretation of things follows no logical path. However, I will answer your question with a question. Who told the wealthy they could become richer by stepping over everyone else?

To stop the inequity that exists in our tax codes, we need to tax all sources of income as ordinary income...capital gains, dividends, carried interest and estate taxes. It's time we stop letting millionaires shirk their responsibilities.

Heck, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that taxing carried interest as ordinary income would increase federal tax revenue by $10 billion "from 2012 through 2016 and $21 billion from 2012 through 2021".

I knew it, I knew it. I told my wife the other day, we need to find out the background of who got this contract to build the website. I knew it would be some minority contractor, and hence why it is so fuked up. I am sick of these federal contracts going to these minority firms when they are incapable of doing the job. This is Obama my friends, an incompetent who intends to destroy our country by pretending to build our country with incompetent minority firms. He is a racist pos.
this is a big story, but more because of cronyism than because of race...Chicago politics at its worst....

how much kickback goes to Barack and Moochelle???

Most of the articles on FoxNews are from AP or Reuters, or similar news services.
Just as both Drudge and HuffPo are aggregators who link to articles from other news sources.
So, what's your point?
Not discriminating enough to separate fact from opinion, regardless of source?
If not, too bad for you....
Hmmm. You are ducking and dodging. People don't listen to Fox News for AP or Reuters stories. They can get those anywhere. They listen to Fox News because, like a moth to a flame, they are mesmerized by sensationalized journalism. They don't give a damn about Facts.

You do realize that the estate tax dates back to the 18th century don't you? Too bad, so sad.

You, on the other hand, really should be apologizing to all for constantly boring us with examples of your obvious lack of refinement and education. You only embarrass yourself.
My supposed "lack of refinement and education" makes me real. The Salt of the Earth sorta person.

Your bombastic, nauseous intelligentsia and pompous azz portrayal is something that you should ashamed of.

"Thanks for your courage Gavin.The Anti-Human, Anti-Science, Anti-Family, Anti-Life Feminists must be told and reminded repeatedly: Boyhood is not a mental illness. Pregnancy is not a disease. Fatherhood is absolutely vital. Homemaking is not a wasted life. Children need a mother and a father. Men & Women need each other. Strong families create strong societies. Marriage is the union of the two halves. The Welfare State is tantamount to forcing women 'back in the kitchen', and the replacement of husbands and fathers with an atm card.
Leftism has been disastrous. They had their turn. Now we need to do what works based on the lessons of history and understanding of human nature. If ever there was a perfect moment for a principled Conservative to lead the way out of the darkness, it's now."

In a very real sense, there is a pitched battle today between Good & Evil. It's not just a 'culture war' and it's not a Fire & Brimstone Bible Thumping.

It is a fight between right and wrong that needs to be fought hard until the likes of Magic Negros become fading nightmares of history.

Random post on Columbia...

{I'm so glad you asked. So I'm not the only person who's wondered about this. I attended Columbia U. School of General Studies, 81-85, and attended many classes at the College. Columbia is a big place, so I can't claim to have met everyone, but it's always bothered me that I don't remember Obama, because at that time, there were few black students there, and I remember all of the ones I met. Yes, all! And I never heard of him either. When I read that he was sort of a classmate of mine, I had a sense of being gaslighted."

..."descent with modification..."

"Darwin came to understand that any population consists of individuals that are all slightly different from one another. Those individuals having a variation that gives them an advantage in staying alive long enough to successfully reproduce are the ones that pass on their traits more frequently to the next generation. Subsequently, their traits become more common and the population evolves. Darwin called this "descent with modification."

Darwin did NOT believe that the environment was the cause...
It was Nature that gave the species the tools to survive...

He failed because they were already educated.

When blacks are caught raping, robbing, selling drugs or emptying public coffers with a wheelbarrow, the black community grumbles about how white society forced them into a life of crime.
