re: Whats the big deal with releasing Tax Returns? - ShortyRob
[quote]Whats the big deal with releasing Tax Returns?[/quote]Simple. 95% of Americans don't understand taxes in the slightest meaning that they can be led to believe ANYTHING regarding a given tax return and don't possess the personal skill to evaluate assertions. So, releasing your return is bas...

re: Minimum wage, what about those of us that can't raise the price of our services? - ShortyRob
If I own a company, my "cost of production" is whatever I can get someone to do the work for, or, in the case of the backhoe, whatever I can get it for. I don't ask the person who sells me the backhoe if he can stay in business selling it to me at that price. I just buy it. Same if I rent it. It...

I'll give German credit for this. Fit such an insanely fricking stupid position regarding his definition of the cost of production, he's fleshed out a whole lot of the stupidity. The best part is how gloriously at odds his concepts are with basic reality. I can only thank goodness that at lea...

re: The top 1% pay half of the income tax in this country - ShortyRob
I'd like to add to this thread, as I've noted in all tax threads that with rare occasion, whenever the govt gives us tax number breakdowns, they do so by HOUSEHOLD income. This makes comparing over time almost fruitless. The U.S. marriage rate is near historic lows. This means that single fi...

The middle class hasn't eroded. That is easily the greatest lie of this generation. On a pure lifestyle basis, Anyone who would trade being in the bottom third of today's middle class for being in the top 10% of the middle class in 1950 is a fricking tard too stupid for words. ...
