Is taxing the rich to give to the poor really "moral"?

You seem to think that fanatical ideological drivel is some kind of scholarly text.

OK.

BTW it's not so much 'unassailable' as unreadable & uninteresting. Over & over you post the same kind of stuff.

Meaning you have no answer? Neither Marx or 4F agree with Republicans on most issues. You must not have read many of their posts.

ROFL I just said I wasn't going to go into repub rhetoric with 4F so why would I with you. I doubt you're so helpless as to be unable to google their bs. & you're right I haven't read much of their stuff. The stuff I have seen is on the extreme side.

You expect people to argue with your cut and pastes? Why not give the e-mail address of whoever actually wrote what you copy and we can argue with them. At least they contributed their own words. Maybe.

Why bother? Every person who ever wastes their time disagreeing with you just gets called a dupe or some such idiocy in your predictible rants.

marxy, Your problem is with your ability to think. You are not able to understand what I write so you allow your lower self free rein to cuss and write like a person with mental problems. Try really hard to get away from all that mises nonsense and you might just be able to understand.

vrwc The size of the government will maximize when all the problems government can cure no longer exist. We haven't reached that size yet.

Perhaps you can find a video clip that is better than the one you just posted that will explain why a larger government is needed.

kbw [[Such as if we were sitting around a fireplace. ]]

Nonsense again. You are referring to others like tweenies do in middle school. Join the clique. LOL

============================

doesn't matter, we can do what we want.

You are just like a little kid William. You latch on to something and then you wear it into the ground. Continually telling people to grow up is quite childish. You do it other places on the net too, not just on amazon. So, it's not just me. It is you, and it makes you look like you have an OCD disorder. It make you look bad, not me.

kbw, such puerility. Are all liars like that?

====================

you should know since you are a liar.

Puerility? What, you learned a new word today and wanted to use it? So, BFD, you can call someone childish in 20 different way, who cares, we already know you're a snob. All it does is show that you are still obsessed with telling people to grow up or that they are immature. You're broken record and it is not very mature of you. LOL

kbw [[Grow up and quit playing word games ]]

You make it obvious that you have never been treated as a mature adult in this world. Specificity is very important when communicating amongst mature adults.

Why don't you let the addressee answer the question.
=================================
how about you understand it in the first place and not waste people's time answering your stupid questions.

So you are gay too. Interesting.

He and i are joking around. You took it to where your mind is. So now you're reading your gay fantasy into posts, that is, when you're not at the beach ogling children's mothers in their bathing suits?

True. There's a lot I don't understand.

and that is the worst snap you''ll get from me, btw. I'm never be meaner. You're one of my favorite people I disagree with. Some people hit you harder, but from that night we have that long talk, I know you're a sweetheart.

[[But if we're for paying down the debt, then we make cuts where we can & we increase income where we can. ]]

Obama is not even pushing it as that Sug. He is pushing it as being more "fair." It won't do anything to help the deficit. It is estimated to bring in $5 billion a year. We have a 1500 billion deficit. it is only 5 of 1500. But it won't even bring in that much. Net deductions increase with a higher rate. Buffet is a shrewd investor. There must be something in it for him. Look at this picture of him. Look at his eyes. http://images.politico.com/global/news/111012_warren_buffett_605_1_ap.jpg

here is what the obama friendly NY Times says.

The Buffett Rule, which would raise an estimated $50 billion over 10 years, would not make an appreciable dent in the deficit or provide a lot more for essential programs. By comparison, letting the Bush-era tax cuts expire for taxpayers making more than $250,000 a year, as the president has also called for, would raise $800 billion over 10 years

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/11/opinion/mr-obama-and-the-buffett-rule.html

even at the 800 billion amount, it only $80 billion a years. that starts to help. but we're still 1420 billions short.

visionary says: government workers such as school teachers work more hours for less pay than non-government workers;

===================
unsupported nonsense. LAUSD for example. Los Angeles Unified teachers on average earn $63,000. That is less than teachers in districts ranging from New York City and San Diego to Chicago and San Francisco. They are considered underpaid. Add in benefits and the generous pensions and they get and they are well above the middle class average of $50k.

Again you have no clue what you are taking about. Can't wait for your empty trite answer in effort to try to cover your ignorance.

lets call it dues.

How come 60 million people don't have to pay their federal dues?

We've paid down debt numerous times.
===========================
not really. The debt has increased every single year, even under Clinton.

did you mean deficit instead of debt?
