It's true that everything points to Casey Anthony, it's true that she is the only logical murderer at this point, but it hasn't been PROVED. That's the biggest thing about the whole case. Yes, the common man knows she is guilty, anyone can see that and I'm sure the jurors see that, but the problem is it only points to her, it does not pinpoint her "beyond a shadow of a doubt." Casey Anthony did it, but the jurors made the right legal choice in acquitting her because by our legal standards the evidence was not enough.

@OutWest your comment is part of the whole problem with America. It's people labeling themselves or others as liberals/conservatives, democrats/republicans. As soon as you do that, you then feel like an a hole if you vote against the side you have aligned with, even if the other side has an idea that will work far better then the side you root for. Case in point, Sarah Palin. The only reason someone should vote for her is if they also invest in pistols for when people commit suicide rather than be run by chinese. However, people will still vote for her because she's Republican. (lack of space to provide Democratic example)Fact is, most people are to lazy to do research to understand what a candidate is all about so they check off when they see a D or an R. Until that changes, and people stop going all for one party because it is "their" party, we're only going to go into a deeper and deeper hole.

The funny part is that liberals always think they are more intelligent and morally superior to their conservative fellow citizens!

Does he seem to be?

He's a c*ck rag, who cares what he thinks. I wish he would quit trying to pretend like he isn't one of the "rich" people.

For your second link.
Many good topics, but frightfully biased and points to conclusions that I’m certain I’ve heard opposing opinion from with just as much vigor and certainty (and not just on comment boards, fellow economists).
One example is number 9. The example Bill Gates leaving hides the point that one man/family has accrued so much money in a system of limited resources. Further, income has risen for the middle class, but has it kept pace with expenses that are seen as mandatory (gas, healthcare, education costs). A growth of 17% over a 24 year period seems rather pathetic when compared to a required 8% yearly growth from portfolios just to grow and curb inflation... over a 24 year period that is about 305% growth from the start. To put it another way, our health care costs just jumped another 34% this year alone. Did our pay increase to offset that cost? Hasn't for the past 3 years at least.

Wish I had more time to address each point for conversation but I doubt anyone would enjoy that anyway. I’ll just make to posts and call it good. It is late, so I apologize if I made any mistakes in my argument.

For you first link
At an income of less than 30000, that is a difficult amount to live on in this country with any real hopes of saving, providing, etc. Standard responses like “get a better job” or “more education” can help... but aren’t a certainty and are a huge expense. The end of the article notes that 1646 filers in the ½ to full million range weren’t taxed even though they probably should have been due to errors in the system and offset the claim that it’s merely a matter of the lower 50% not paying.

AJ, we're in agreement on that. We disagree on who's currently paying them. it's not the rich and it's not the poor so . . . I guess that explains the deficit

@ auburnjunky ? WTH? who's not paying tax?
Okay, I'm not now 'cause I'm not working but
when I did it pissed me off that my co-worker, doing the same job paid $10,000 less in taxes because
he was too stupid to use a condom and had kids.

The Gov'ment didn't go without that money, they
taxed someone else more...and it wasn't the rich.

Still thinking with your emotions, eh Maher?

Glad you're not on a jury, Bill. You smarmy son of a bi.tch.

I'm NOT with him on the idea that the Dems are the good guys and the Repubs are the bad guys. They BOTH take massive donations from the corporate sector, and neither is doing anything significant to protect the interests of the majority.

@5Cats: "Clinton: balanced the budget by CUTTING WELFARE!"

He also rode the wave of Reaganomics which led to the prosperity of the 90's, for the US and the rest of the world.

Clinton also expanded the Community Re-investment Act, which led to the housing crisis we are in now.

Maher is a whore, plain and simple. Simple really describes him, actually. His "monologue" is so FULL of errors it's pointless to even try to address them with a 1K limit, eh?

I'll try though:
Clinton: balanced the budget by CUTTING WELFARE!
Bush: had to fight 2 wars.

Simple? yes! But not simple enough for Billy-boy.

They don't pay because of credits and things of that nature.

Here's some reading.

Sorry to chime in again, but can you clarify the "bottom 50%" and how you know they don't pay.

Is your boss part of the lower 50% based on your story that he doesn't pay his share (at 150K)?

This puts the median of income around 61K

And this says that 51% of the US makes over that median (rounded slightly)

After the personal exemptions, the effective tax rate of those at the median is about 8%
Putting them very close to your 10% anyway. So it really comes down to, why do you think the lower 50% don’t pay and get away with it. 2 3 Next >
