Political: Should the poor be taken care of by the government or the rich?

If the rich take care of the poor, they set the rules on care.

If the government takes care of the poor, they spend whatever it takes to give everyone what they want.

You could reason that today's system is passionate slavery.

You could reason that the rich DO take care of the poor today, but the government has intervened and sets the rules on how to spend the money for the rich.

I too want turdly to take care of me. What are your rules turd?

In France, a citizen just went to Russia because the rich are taxed 75%.

If there are no rich people left in the U.S., what happens to all the poor?

Then the poor are the new rich and we keep raising the debt ceiling....

Is there a difference? Govt. tax the rich, the rich pay for it. It's like snaking your name on a gift that you didn't buy but get credit for.

The "poor" (with their 50" TV's and smartphones) should thank a wealthy person each time they encounter one. They should be thinking to themselves, "That's one of the people who MADE something of themselves and, as a result, are able to support my unproductive lame ass....and 50 more just like me."

Of course, we won't be holding our breath.

"...IS able to support..."

(trying to clean up my grammer this year)

My plan is simple;
The more you make the less taxes you pay. A reward for aspiring.

CCC camps/retraining for the terminally unemployed.

Bracero program reinstated.

SERVICE GUARANTEES CITIZENSHIP.

20% FLAT TAX.
GOES DOWN IN STEPS AS INCOME INCREASES.

unfair to poor?
Aspire to not be poor.

Unemployment benefits are a LOAN, not an entitlement.

How many wealthy people have you ever met? I suspect few if not zero.
by jusross January 3, 2013 3:42 PM


And by "wealthy", I suppose you mean those making over $250K/year?

WOW. I've met hundreds! Maybe thousands.


by Fire for Effect January 3, 2013 3:46 PM


But...I get your sentiment juross. You support ungrateful, unproductive folks.

by Fire for Effect January 3, 2013 3:47 PM


Didn't realize turdly was so soft.

20%?

Start at 75%. Do the opposite of France.

Wealthy and rich are different; no?

Rich as in plantation rich. own big companies.

Wealthy have money but no ability to hire/create jobs. Tom Cruise is wealthy. Warren Buffet is rich.


by the voice of reason January 3, 2013 4:12 PM


Eight figures is rich, seven is wealthy.

That's Cash in bank, not stocks or bullshit ghost equity/silver positions.
I'm not soft, I'm practical. 20% is enough.
by turdly January 3, 2013 4:24 PM


...umm if you think $250K a year equates to "wealth" I should probably leave this conversation.

Wealth never goes away...Mike Tyson, (once rich), now broke. Michael Jordan, even with all of the gambling, wealthy.

Very different.

$250K, that's just, in my definition, extremely well off.
by jusross January 3, 2013 4:59 PM


Just going with Obama's bullshxx definition jusross.

Entertainers do nothing but entertain. Who are the job creators? Those guys that take companies public and create jobs. Bill Gates is rich not wealthy. Now turd, set the bar at 500k for 20 percent. At 20k u pay 50 percent.

Wealth never goes away?

Depends on who ends up with it. When wealth meets a Mike Tyson type, It is destroyed. Mike Tyson had wealth. He still would if he didn't let the parasites that latched on to his wealth run things.

Parasitic wealth accumulation is a wonderful thing.

Advantage given to the vapid, advantage TAKEN by their betters.
