Right! The US is one of the most avarice oriented countries on this
planet. Your laws support that concept and many of your citizens
follow that concept religiously.
Yet, you want to limit someone from doing exactly what your
constitution and personal rights have guaranteed.
You might just as well add a 10% personal tax onto your top 2%
wealthiest citizens and curtail that fiscal cliff you're about to
Unfortunately, a 100% tax on those two percent would hardly put a dent
in the problem the problem. When you spend $3.8 trillion and only take
in $2.4 trillion and add the fact that the sum total of all salaries,
wages and tips is $4.8 trillion annually, falling over the cliff can't
be avoided without very large spending cuts. Currently, SS, Medicare,
Medicaid and the new Obamacare can't be supported with current revenue,
even if everything else including military, foreign aid, government
payrolls, NASA, etc was entirely eliminated.

Where they got the idiotic term "fiscal cliff", when it's merely
expiring tax cuts, I'll never know. And don't blame only the Reps for
it. -All- of congress created the default scenario, -all- agreed to
it when they couldn't agree last time, and -all- are guilty of neglect
at this point. Obama's rape of the Medicare/SS system funds has to be
stopped NOW! Gov't fraud and waste have to be stopped NOW! Fiscal
sanity has to start NOW!
Neither the gov't nor the people seem to understand that at all, Doug.
<deep sigh> The gov't is acting like a 16 y/o girl with her first
credit card from Dad, complete with ZERO instructions on how to limit

The methodology of the left has always been:
2. Repeat the lie as many times as possible
3. Have as many people repeat the lie as often as possible
4. Eventually, the uninformed believe the lie
5. The lie will then be made into some form oflaw
6. Then everyone must conform to the lie
