What’s fair?

The top 10% income earners in the US pay 71% of the taxes.

47% of the taxpayers in the country pay zero income tax.

47% of the taxpayers in the country think that their income tax payments are just about right.

Who woulda thunk it?

    Dumb is the operative word. i heard a woman call into Cspan the other day in regard to the repub convention. She said she is voting for Obama because “he got her social security, medicare, and her drugs”. Now that was one of the dumbest things I’ve heard.

    No constitutional right to vote for president. Presbo wants an amendment so that rich people don’t have free speech. I would just about trade that off if he included a rider that stupid people couldn’t vote.
