“so wanting a hard working business person to give you money through the tax code is not selfish?”

“No. Money has to move to be worth anything. The question is one of appropriation, efficiency, and productivity. We complain about taxation from the sovereign that built this country to begin with, and it's them where our money comes from. It's a co-dependency. Try living in a free country where there is ZERO tax and see if they survive more than 6 months. If you can get your neighbors together to build a highway system without govt involvement, GREAT! But let's be real...there would be no highway system if the govt didn't build it”
“I only want them to work and earn it,not live off everyone elses labor”

“just how the corporations, politicians banks elite live of our taxes and hard work. Why are you dam special ? we as a people united are being robbed by this people. And you just care that a few normal common folks can get a good life ? seriously where is your heart and brain”
“I so wish more could be taken from the entrepreneurial rich and hard working middle class so the sloths have tv,Xbox,ac car food shelter Heath care and college without earning anything”

“Actually, the transfer of wealth is heading in the opposite direction from what you suggest.
More money is being taken from the working and midlle classes and put in the pockets of the wealthiest class.
Moreover, you seem to have little idea how a capitalist economy works. The poor and unemployed are vital to the success of a capitalist system. It's a shame that you don't have the capacity to appreciate them and the role they play.”

“As a member of the "entrepreneurial rich and hard working middle class" I would like to know in what way (actual facts, please) "more" will be taken from us?”

“So we should take away not only the TV and Xbox, but their food and shelter and health care as well?
The right wing vision of America: sick, starving people sleeping in cardboard boxes.”

“So, then you MUST be for the mandate to stop health care freeloaders.”

“they have destroyed america and the global economy. And you cry about a few people who want to study and have a good life ?”
“Dems have done this too, in fact they institute policies that make oil prices higher so their worshipful green projects can get enough subsidies to compete”

“Are you speaking of policies (taxes) that cause oil prices to rise to levels that reflect the true cost of oil during it's entire life cycle?
I live 10 miles from an EPA cleanup site. The owners of that site are long gone but the costs continue. The price of the product (creosote) was never high enough to cover the true cost of manufacturing the product. The production profits were collected by the manufacturer but the clean up costs were obtained through taxes levied on citizens.
The long term costs of oil will not be covered by the manufacturers and distributors voluntarily; these costs will be transferred to the people via the government. We must offset those future costs by taxing the current profits; this method is a fair way of defraying future costs.
Or perhaps you believe that there are no costs associate with pollution?”
“He did his most damage when in the first two yrs he had strong democratic majorities”

“Ahem! Have you not followed anything about the Senate nonsense where it requires 60 votes+ to get anything done? Or, that several of those so-called "Dems" were centrists or center-right? Meaning that Obama did not have what he needed in Congress to get all that he wanted to get done.
It's just too simplistic and simple-minded to assert otherwise.”

“Actually, he did the most damage when he failed to hold the Bush Administration accountable for their war crimes. It gave the GOP confidence to up the ante and continue to disrupt government without any fear of reprisals. Ditto with Wall Street. No arrests. Thousands of arrests among the peaceful protestors! A few prosecutions would have gone a long way toward fixing most of the problems we have now.”
“A reality based on confiscating the hard earned resources of your fellow citizens”
Wildlife2064 on Jun 24, 2012 at 09:45:00
“The Dems process at least gives you the resources first - you can take what you need and give what you don't for the good of the nation. The GOP plan is "you don't need anything, give it all to me". They don't even let you see it.
They are an enigma. They complain about all the people "on the government dole", then propose policies that will put even more people there.”
madkoz on Jun 24, 2012 at 09:35:55
“Lucky for you, you had none to confiscate so what are you complaining about?”
“What we don't need are more government beaurocracy jobs. If all government jobs were police firemen and teachers we would not be in such a debt mess. Unfortunately the police fire and teaching jobs are the minority of the jobs and represent some of the necessary functions of government”
“It will transfer resources to the private economy from the public sector which will create many more jobs that produce and multiply, unlike government jobs”
girlking on Jun 15, 2012 at 11:06:06
“you're absolutely correct about transferring resources, which are dollars, to the private sector and that's called a corporate subsidies i.e., oil companies, wall street, etc. So I guess you're okay with cutting teachers, firefighters and police officers for corporate entities that are too big to fail. Where do we want to go with this?”
girlking on Jun 15, 2012 at 11:01:41
“in the meantime, the teacher, firefighter and police officer are out of jobs. I will research your comment about transferring resources which boils down to dollars from the government to the private sector. I don't think you're correct, but for now I'll have to research that comment.”
