Re: Due When? Why?
If you make over $500K a year every dollar over should be taxed at 50%. And we go up from there. At $10 mil you fork over 80%. Same for corporate taxes, different amounts, of course, but the same principle. And we can finally do what should have been done decades ago and end this heretical, blasphemous policy of not taxing churches.

Those who benefit from the socio-economic environment that the US provides should pay to support it. Those that benefit the most should pay the most to ensure it keeps providing the socio-economic environment that they benefit from.

What is ironic is that those were the type of effective tax rates we had in the 1950s. A time that was very prosperous for the United States. Also (ironically), a time that right wingers often cite as being the 'good times'. While conveniently forgetting that back then, we had much higher taxes and we subsidized education much more.

Oh the humanity!

It is funny, but is it real or a photoshop?

I just did a quick set of searches and it appears that this is actually a fake. She never claimed Benjamin Franklin was president.

However, she DID claim that the Founding Fathers worked tireless to abolish slavery and that Carbon Dioxide is not a harmful gas because it is 'natural' and exists in 'nature'.

And of course, let's not forget that she famously said vaccines can cause mental retardation in children. To which, she responded to the person making the claim by exclaming: "Mom??!!"

Ok, I made up the last part.
