    Top 1 percent pay 40% of all taxes

    We all believe and we all believe they are not paying enough or their fair share. The country will become more wealthy if we tax them more. The worst thing you can do is run a inflation tax on everyone, and pray the country does not hit hyper-inflation due to the failed suply-sided economics of the morons Reagan and Bush II. At least Bush I called it what it was voodoo economics.

      How can someone as obviously ignorant as you even find an investment board?

      Since I refuse to believe that our school system could possibly be this bad, from which country are you posting this bs?

    • --we all believe they are not paying enough or their fair share.

      No, you all believe that. I believe I'm taxed too much.
      I believe that 75% of all government programs should be shut down today...tomorrow is too late.
      I believe that the government that governs least governs best.
      I believe that the governments job is to protect me from my's my job, thank you, to protect me from myself.
      I believe that the federal government should be the 20% in the 80/20 rule for on-the-ground regulation with states holding all the playing cards.
      I believe it's uninformed assholes like you who are going to ruin our country.
      I believe that it was government fault, though flooding the market with cheap money and pushing regulations requiring home loans given to people who could clearly not afford them, for this whole financial collapse.
      I believe that this is NOT a liquidity crisis but a confidence crisis; confidence that the bank you lend to will be solvent when you call to collect later. Right now no one knows becuase a great deal of the liabilities CANNOT be valued based on the fact that the markets for them never existed in the first place.
      And finally, I believe that people like you, who clearly and most assuredly are fucking dumbasses without a clue, I believe people like you should just shut the fuck up and get out of the goddamn stock market.

    • How much are you getting paid to post all your vitriol and lame-brained comments?

      I sure hope you aren't wasting your life doing it for free!
