    7th Annual LvC Beach Party 2012 discussion Thread

    I am sure it will be another great meet - but not this year for me... The caddy's big trip this year is to Indy this fall - and the big oval - yep, he gets to go on the track at the Brickyard. I guess you get to do about 5 laps.. and they are sort of picky about the speed, but heck on that last...

    Reality

    Shag - I am always fascinated by your narrow world view when you approach belief - You seem to create this narrative (or in this case cut and paste) where you limit your overall perspective to an 'American Christian' mindset. Why?

    CTLS - why did you ignore the Republican only poll - a poll that still showed that a majority of Americans want to tax the wealthy more - and all republicans work and would never, ever live off government money... So that sort of blows your idea about how it is the 'takers' skewing the...

    Are you living in a cave, it has been all over the news how Americans are asking for higher taxes for the wealthy (and they can't be all progressives and occupiers shag)... Here - CNN did a poll about this - One of the best questions... Taxes on wealthy people should be kept low because they...

    Vote Republican

    Nope - we had the guy you could have a beer with - Bush. But, with Romney you are getting an elitist, with no ties to the middle class. Oh, Daddy's connections got Romney his job at Bain to begin with - true, Romney parleyed Bain into Bain Capital, but without Daddy - that road would have not...

    Shag - I wasn't going along any narrative with regards to the Industrial Revolution - other than pointing out that it wasn't the common worker that invested in those companies (because we don't consider 'work' to be an investment). So, you can quit espousing all the anti-Marxist rhetoric -...

    Vote Republican

    Romney is Bush with more money-CTLS - and 'self made man' - come on - his rich daddy paid for education and his rich daddy connections are what made Romney. And he will do exactly what Bush did - wow - and the hill will be republican, just like it was during Bush - the country can't handle...

    And we didn't have income tax until Lincoln shag - We didn't have corporate taxes until 1913 So, no, the industrial revolution was financed by a fairly small, exclusive group, there were very few 'working class' people who speculated in the market - unlike today, where most retirement...

    Vote Republican

    'when I drag the nation through 8 years of incompetence and carnage and I leave the place a bigger mess than Lindsey Lohen's trailer, then blame the Democrats for cleaning up too slow... you will wake up refreshed, confused, and somewhat paranoid, and you'll remember nothing and vote Republican'...

    Shag - didn't you like the tea party? However now you are saying they are using the 'class warfare' pointy stick, what happened? Are they marxists? Since Reagan got into office wealth inequality has been tipping to the 1% - so that right now it is about 33% of the wealth that is concentrated in...

    Not higher - equal - tax all income equally - 18% flat tax... period. Once again - the rich will never go for it - because they largely depend on capital gains... it isn't 'bad' economics - it is fair economics. No shag - if that were the case we would have seen huge expansions in business in...

    I know how dividends are taxed - and they are the only part of the capital gains game that is taxed twice. If I own part of a small company - the company pays taxes on the profits each year, if I get dividends from that company (a portion of the profit) - I will pay taxes on that dividend -...

    As a whole, capital gains are not taxed twice shag - every time you sell stock - no one has paid taxes on the gain you have realized... so why are you insisting that they have been. Dividends are different than when you realize gains from buying and selling. Keep the lower tax rate for dividends...

    Once again shaggy - until you get into the real world of investment - don't pretend you know something about it - I make no dividends on Apple stock - they don't pay dividends - they take their profits and pour them back into the company (so since those profits are used to buy stuff, invent...

    But the gain on the stock isn't part of the profits by the company. Perhaps I bought Apple when it was $45 a share. If my stock in Apple goes to $600, Apple didn't paid any additional taxes over the years because my stock is worth more. The street has decided because of various things that Apple...

    Shag - I am no way stating we shouldn't have investment - your ramblings are becoming disjointed... way out there shag... The fact is shag - that as a percentage of the money out there that the same percentage was used for investment when the tax rates were at 28% as they were when the...

    No - I don't think it is, until it gets very high - certainly much higher than our current 34% rate. Clinton's 38% rate certainly wasn't punitive. There is a 'sweet spot" (laffer curve) but, we certainly didn't hit it with Clinton's rates - so lets at least go back to those. Payroll is...
