    mawilson got a reaction from Leatherneck in Business Insider: rich people can't buy all the products we need to sell to have a healthy economy   
    No need for such extremes - Hong Kong will do nicely. 16.5% corporate rate, 15% personal rate, no capital gains, VAT or sales taxes.
    I'm not arguing for a zero rate, just a fair rate that doesn't have me working through the month of August just to pay my tax bill.

    Such foolishness and arrogance.
    They think they can just keep hitting up the same group of people for more and more cash without consequences, and leave more than half the people in this country out of it entirely.
    Guess what - if you try and fuсk the rich, the rich will always fuсk you first.

    It's not your "pie" to "slice". If I made $1m or $10m this year, the money is mine and mine alone - not part of some imaginary pie that needs to be shared with the poor. We don't add up my earnings and your earnings and some poor schmuck's earnings and then redistribute it in a way that Comrade Obama sees fit. That's not how capitalism works. We all pay taxes (or at least some of us do) which pay for some safety nets, but that's about it.

    American companies manufacture abroad, sell abroad and keep their money abroad. Unions are obsolete.

    Let's just go over the cliff already. A reversion to Clinton era tax rates and a slowdown in the growth of our massive defense spending?
    I love it. A short recession is a small price to pay for that kind of reset.


    We need higher taxes for the middle class. They are not paying their fair share.

    mawilson reacted to I AM NOT THAT GUY in Anti-Obamacare rhetoric hurt Papa John's and Applebee's   
    The only thing that is limiting my restaurant dining experience is the quality of the food, the price I have to pay for it, and how convenient the place is to get to. I really don't pay attention to what corporate blow-hard's have to say about anything, from a consumer aspect. Actually, I really don't enjoy dining at chain restaurants, except to get a burger lunch once in a while when the wife bugs me enough. I am a better cook than most of those that do it for a living, at least as far as appealing to my own palate and nutritional requirements.

    Ironically, not dining at those restaurants would force them not to hire any more workers and consider cutting their hours - just like they said.
