Re: Buffett Urges Congress to Raise Taxes on ‘Coddled’ Billi

It's you're, not your. And I am to take your response as serious? Plucking a couple words out of context and using them as ad hominem attacks on me? And even though your second statement is an associative ad hominem, I will say that my views align more or less with Ron Paul, although I never watch F...

Re: Buffett Urges Congress to Raise Taxes on ‘Coddled’ Billi

I agree. The US has such a budget shortfall, we should not just stop with 17, 33, or even 40 percent of Warren Buffet. Let's take it all. The US needs all of his money. I have other suggestions I cribbed from this (hopefully) tongue-in-cheek video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=661pi6K-8WQ Better y...

Re: Military Expenditures

The average adjusted gross income in the U.S. is about $33,000, over 144 million returns. Tax each of them at 2.9% and you'll come up with only 17% of what Medicare actually earned. Rich people, almost all of whom are NOT currently eligible for Medicare, are the ones funding the system. Medicare is...

Re: Military Expenditures

Military spending is one of the only real Constitutional reasons to spend money. Paying to feed Tyrone's baby, who knocked up Latisha,,,,,That's not really Constitutional. Article 1, Section 8: "The Congress shall have Power To . . . provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United ...

Re: Military Expenditures

In other words, Medicare is currently supported by rich people who are not eligible for it, not by the former contributions of those who are. According to the Medicare site, all who paid into the system for 10 years will get Medicare Part A once they hit 65. http://www.medicare.gov/MedicareEligibil...

Re: Military Expenditures

Medicare is paid for by payroll taxes isn't it? I've been paying into it all my working life, just like SS. I don't quite see how you can call it free. It's not free; for women, it's a 229.8% return on every dollar you put in. http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/the-best-life/2011/01/05/social-secu...

Re: Fructose=Poison

I don't know about Tuda, but I haven't been consuming sucrose, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, lactose, maltose, dextrose, or anything else with a suffix ending in -ose, since March 1997. Neither do I eat corn, potatoes, peas, carrots, beets, fruit, berries, wheat, barley, or any starch or grain...
