#5 Despite?

Income taxes are like fining people for driving fast. Only a leftist moron would be surprised that people drove less and drove slower.

#6 g(r)omgoru Hello!, We have an economics professor I won't say where who has the worst credit rating a person could have. Maxed out with his credit card to purchase a used vehicle but was declined. Another professor has a hybrid Honda just a couple years old and the motor is shot. They may be intelligent but extremely poor keeping basic maintenance done timely.

Just remember how hard it was for many of our ancestors to leave the 'old country', where generations of them had grown up, to get away from the authoritarian looting class.

..and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable..

#13 Unfortunately California is out front in our financial meltdown. They are demonstrating what will happen next month after our loving government raises taxes on the wealthy. They will move their money and invest outside the US at a minimum or leave....
