It is immoral because someone else says it is and wants to correct the income inequality.

I think I missed something.  Sorry if I did.

    You don't have to hit the jackpot to join the top tier tax bracket. An AGI of 400k/single, 425k/married is all it takes. The additional 3.8% Investment income/Obamacare tax starts at 200k for singles and 250k for married couples...and don't forget about the 12.4% SS tax that the Democrats are trying to take away the yearly cap which is currently at 113k.

    Lord love ya for tryin', Jill, but B2B is such a partisan hack he won't listen to facts.  His ignorance is so massive I'm afraid it can't be fixed; you can buy books for folks like him, but all they'll do is chew the covers off 'em.

      JAP69,

      Is that the way you feel or are you being an echo? These don't sound like your previous posts.

      Interesting that the someone who wants to correct the income inequality is making about $70K a month in the stock market, takes $100,000,000 vacations on taxpayer money, and encourages incompetent friends of his to form companies dealing in things they know nothing about and subsidies them.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        Yep.  Unfortunately, its not just the ones on the left.  There are plenty on the right that lack the stones to act to impeach this lawless dictator.

        Cant impeach a dictator if you never had one and America never has nor never will have a dictator

                    I wish I were that young again.  One thing's for sure; I was smarter at the age of 15 than you are now.  Answer this: how can someone so functionally illiterate as you own a business?

                      Wow you think you were smart at 15? What did the doctor at the state hospital  think about you at 15? Or better still what did the other orphans think about you?

                        Yeah, was fairly smart, got good grades, played sports, won honors in them and in academics.  I was a good kid, never got into trouble then and haven't since.  I wasn't an orphan, either;  unlike you, I was smart AND my parents were married.

                        My ex father-in-law was a doctor at a state school;  there was one young man there who suffered from encephalitis and I imagine you're much like him...drool on your chin, vapid expression on your face, using grunts to communicate.  Just because your head - like his-  is the size of a #2 washtub, you think it means you have a lot of brains.

                          Ive heard you orphaned kids have vivid imaginations, which school chum's life are you trying to immulate? You ex father-in-law...didnt know you were married...when did you and your husband split up?? Im sure it is his loss

                            Playing Dueling Insults w/ you is cruel...to you.  It's akin to pulling wings off of flies.   I've got some things to do, so I'll let you spew your vomit-like wit for now.

                            I didn't know you were a homophobe, but it doesn't surprise me.   I've roughnecked (worked on drilling rigs) with gay guys who were more of a man than you.
