Im the 53%

I worked hard for every dime I have and now Im forced to put it at risk in investments that are a crap shoot due to reckless Kenyansian economic policies...

I get to pay lots of taxes on it all too...

I "Retired early" now a Mexican does my old job for 1/2 the pay...

Im well prepared for the day the SHTF and If I lost it all I be happy if we started over with a true free society and any taxes there were would be paid by the 100%...

Im the 53%....

Yep, as someone that has worked hard and saved, having to pay taxes on the money that I did acquire is okay, but then risking most of it in investments that are in fact a crap shoot because the government insists on seriously Fing with the economy in such a way that what would normally be sound investments become a dangerous game, where if if you come out ahead, you have to pay taxes on those gains as well.

The 1% pay 40% of all income taxes.
47% pay no income taxes and whine about it.

Lies. Everyone pays taxes. Practically everything has a tax, 47% don't pay federal income tax because their incomes are so slow, but they pay taxes.

We are the 53 Percent Vs the 99 Percent

Laughable, simple-minded BS.

Here's the facts: Yes, 47% of Households Owe No Taxes. Look Closer. - NYTimes.com

Does anyone else find it funny that about 1/4 of the people on that site openly admit that they are not part of the "53%".
