OK. I see where you are coming from. Your whole argument is built on the premise that all money belongs to the government in the first place.

I completely reject that premise.

These top 10% are also the beneficiaries of tremendous amounts of subsidies and tax shelters
They could stop all subsidies for all I care but once you start them, it's hard to unravel them. How many working/middle class folks have a job today because of them?
I don't know exactly what you mean by "tax shelters". You will have to be more specific.

That would be a tax deduction; not a tax shelter. But he does seem to be angry about something. Maybe he got turned down for one of those jobs that gets to go to all of those places.

Meh he is just pissed at Daddy because he didn't take his whiny arse fishing, mainly because his father knows he failed miserably and would be embarrassed in front of his business associates.

This is good. I'd love an in-depth tax discussion. Please explain which specific "shelters" you are referring to.

Yeah, he is definitely rebelling against dad. The same dad that most likely provided for him.


He's also an 911 conspiracy guy. Go read his threads on the subject, they are hilarious.

You're referring to the businessman who has bought both the wine . . . and the other guy's food stamp?
What? I'm referring to the businessman who get's to write off the bottle of wine, therefore NOT paying for it.

Really? That dense?
Mogray, when you grow up to be an actual taxpayer like your dad, you'll understand that the bottle of wine was purchased. The businessman bought it. He paid money he earned for it. His purchase generated taxes for the government. His purchase helped the economy. So did your dad's fishing trip.

You'd prefer the Businessman not run as much overhead, be less productive on the sales end because of it, be less profitable, but pay a larger proportion of those lesser profits to the government. I get that. Perhaps you do too. Then again, perhaps not.

I don't see a problem with your father going on a business trip that is paid for with the companies money. As long as we all have an opportunity to work hard, study, and sacrifice for a good job, there should be no problem. If someone wants to take advantage of this perk, than he/she should go through the same training as your pops and get a similar job.

I think they should at least keep their property clean so that the ghetto doesn't look as trashy.
