Yes I do. The debt downgrade was because the
US is piling up debt at an unsustainable rate, not
because anything Ryan did. Refusing
to allow an increase in the debt ceiling, while somewhat
extreme, at least directly addresses the problem. As
for the Dems and Obama, their only plan is denial.
And that is because they actually want the US to hit
the point that we have a debt crisis, just like Greece.
That will be one more Saul Linsky opportunity to grab
wealth from the successful.... Think of the children!
We need a 10% wealth tax and 75% income tax

Exactly the kind of guy I want in office. We already
have too many laws. We should be repealing a whole
lot of the ones that are in existence already. It's the
libs that believe more laws are the solution to everything.
This despite the fact that Congress that generates
these new laws has an approval rating of 15%. If
you had an employee that had an approval rating of
15% on his current job performance, why would you
want him taking on more responsibility?
Well, they certainly can't give tax breaks to the almost 50% who don't pay
any taxes. Duh!
Me? I'm for a "per capita" tax in addition to the income tax. We've got 320
million people in this country. If everybody kicked in just $500 per year,
we would have $160 billion extra in the government coffers.
What about the disadvantaged person who doesn't HAVE $5,000?
I've thought about that.
They could contribute a kidney.
A kidney would replace a dialysis machine whose cost is in the neighborhood,
I guess, of $100,000.
Presto! Taxes paid for twenty years!
Now during those twenty years, the disadvantaged person could contribute one
unit of blood platelets per month for a government credit of $100 per unit.
(I call this my "federal withdrawing plan"). At the end of twenty years
(after the kidney), they would have accumulated an additional 4 years worth
At the end of these four years, if the person is still incapable of
ponying-up the required $5,000, they could contribute a cornea.
Now this time scale gets compressed if the subject has, say, four children
under the age of six. I'm still working on that situation.
Regrettably, the Constitution prohibits involuntary servitude. Except for
conscription. And prison chain gangs. And mandatory apprenticeship prior to
licensing for many trades. And a few other things. Your idea, while a good
one, can't legally be implemented. Nope. Not even.
