back in history, how the hell did this country 'survive' Eisenhower's Tax Rates????

I'm sick of the rich. Seriously. The top 2%....I'd make them 'Special People' and give them a SURTAX immediately. They have enjoyed ALL the gains in income for the past decade!!!!

Working people got nothing....and they worked. The rich just sat around and collected non-working money like Capital Gains and Dividends. They're LAZY and most couldn't create a job beyond that of a Maid.

It probably doesn't matter....we're toast anyway.

I just hoping Mother Nature levels the playing field. After all the rich can't survive by eating money. And everyone in every town knows where they live. Always on the hills (if there are any of them) and on the east side of town (usually) so they don't have to drive with the sun in their eyes when/if they do go to/from the business area of town.

Not winning the election didn't matter to them, proceeding as planned with a megaphone of fear. Avalux Dec 2012 #1
