GREAT group and I hope they outshine the idiots in the 99%!!! I can totally agree with and be a part of this.

Being responsible for our debts and choices and working to make our way without expecting handouts, blaming others, and wanting to take from those with more are absolute foreign concepts to lefties. Pathetic.

The burger flipper pays property tax as part of their rent, pays sales taxes every time they buy something, pays road taxes if they even have a car and pays interest (private tax for using money) on the credit card. You clowns want them to pay federal income tax as well.

You are all using the standard childish whine of "if I have to so does he." I do not believe the burger flipper should pay any federal tax at all. The burden of operation the federal government should be on the top 10% that benefit most from government spending and protection. They own the country so let them pay for running it.

BTW – I am well into the 53% but not even close to the 90th percentile.

They are talking about federal taxes and you know it. But you just spew more garbage. How do you even get dressed in the morning?

Jesus has nothing to do with federal taaxes. I don't want Jesus to determine how much in taxes I should pay.

Charity is the best way to help people.


BTW I love the word "givin" the rich businessman isn't givin anything. They came up with a product that people decided to purchase. I can not think of anything more free than that.

I am part of the 53% that has to pay higher taxes to educate someone else's kids while they get a deduction for those same kids.

Right. They pay only "payroll taxes" which are for medicare and social security. Ironically, for them, they get all of that they "paid in" back and more.

For the rest of us, who actually pay income taxes, we will get nothing back from paying into social security and medicare, therefore the "payroll tax" for us is just another income tax from which we derive no benefit.

Any way you spin it, 47% of the population pays no income tax at all- just the payroll tax. We pay the income taxes and payroll tax and will get no benefit from that payroll tax, which will all go to the "47%". It is injury upon insult, yet they want more.

Give a beggar a dollar and he will want five. That is the "47%".

We are the 53 Percent Vs the 99 Percent
And we are the 53% that do pay income tax while the rest get tax "refunds" on money they don't pay.

Just curious. Do you have a clue what that verse is saying in context?

Another atheist trying to "teach" the Bible. I guess you actually need to read and study the Bible to know what you are talking about.
