Actually I was speaking of the United States in the 50s and 60s..  Back when Conservatives valued the middle class..

That's false.

There has never been a wealth tax in US history.

Nah, I refuse to try and figure out

It doesn't have to be that way.

We're all trying to be the best versions of ourselves. We are all trying to acquire as much info as possible and find out why our friends see things the way they do.

You can join in, too.

Give but a single example of me renaming things. Just one. I'll wait.

A high marginal income tax rate?

Pete posted a link specifically about a wealth tax. That's the post you responded to.

Don't get mad at me just because you aren't reading posts!

BTW that's not in keeping with the decorum we are shooting for. Perhaps you should edit this post and remove the unprovoked insult.

You remove your insult and I will remove mine.  Otherwise move on skippy. BTW if you knew I did not read the OP (which BTW I did not).  Then instead of being the  ass that you are, you could have referred me to it in the first place.. like responding to post 44.  But nooooooo, that would be the mature thing to do. Instead, You wanted to derail the thread by pretending the I don’t know what a tariff is. Way to go skippy

lol okay. I called that one, didn't I?!

I referred you to the point when I wrote it in the very first line of my first post in this thread. How much more reference do we need?

We've got someone running around the forum calling people assholes and not reading posts.

Just a heads up.

I assumed that. But the fact is, people will simply move their money elsewhere...malta, bermuda etc...or simply take pay in equity.

Again, I'm mostly against the philosophy - targeting certain classes to pay more in taxes...

and, in our case, the US federal gov't already has such vast waste, I'd rather see massive cuts to depts, or eliminate them entirely...

let's focus on helping the slower runners run faster, versus putting weights on the faster runners.

Yet some would argue that, at a fundamental level, it is the lifeblood of the state.


this is an excellent thought - I think....

my take is if there was ever a law that stated taxes cannot not be levied as a percent of income at a higher rate based on income...ie. a flat tax all pay....

that would substantially take away from the politicians toolbox of buying votes.
