Kissin’ their asses ain’t got us no jobs,

I’m for some kickin’, screw them rich slobs.

If they won’t bust loose with some of that coin,

How about a sharp one right in the groin?

Ninety percent, if you don’t invest,

In a job, that keeps us up with the best.

But hey if we can’t get over that fence,

maybe as high as the country called France?

Or is that too much; for Americans to receive?

Freedom for the world; but a doc we can’t see?

I think there does need to be some more "kickin" going on. Whatever happened to punching some rich schmuck that cut's you off in in his Mercedes SUV (and almost kills you) in the face because he thinks he can because he's rich and you're not - is that the bygone era of a Chevy Chase movie? How about that asshole CEO that beats you into the ground and hands you a pink slip - he can fire you but you still know where he lives right? Seems to me there used to be a little bit of respect given brut vs wealth but now the wealthy cowards cower behind their lawyers... and think they can buy your mortgage from the bank and evict your ass. (There are special landlords out there to that deserve especially a special similar treatment.) I think the cops used to turn a cheek to this kind of little "slip" - since when did cops become the little man-servants of the aristocracy? Are we paying them too much? Maybe we need to bring them back down to our level of pay. I'm not talking about hurting someone - just a little threat of it ya know - because really that's the only thing keeping these assholes in check. Certainly the law isn't, nor the constitution... ? How do we incite some respect for the working class ...?

I was thinking more along the lines of tax policy, boring but effective.

[-] 0 points by factsrfun (6477) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

well tanks for stopping by, if you haven't seen it "Through the Looking Glass" is pretty good too.

[-] 0 points by timirninja (263) 2 years ago

i feel your sarcasm dude. i dont have problem with movies, im downloading them over free high speed internet, how that sounds?

[-] 0 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Ex-cellent.

90% tax rate on income over $1million, no deductions except American job creation. cut military budget by 50% (this will help pay down the national debt the wealthy created)

cut taxes/debt on working/middle class. to increase consumer demand/and hiring.

I'd play a game long ago, back when the internet started and everything was text, where you leveled up like an asymptote. The bigger you got the more expensive it became to get big. The system worked very well to make a domain that was flexible yet created a popular sweet spot.

What happened was that in an effort to be the most powerful, some people would just work that much harder, which resulted in them needing to kill other players even more voraciously, just like an elephant trying to satiate itself by eating ants.

Just a case study that this reminded me of. The game was created at Stanford and was pretty interesting to play. Deep down inside i feel like this kind of system could work really well, maybe just not by itself.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Except this ain't a game & it sounds a lot like 'survival of the fittest' which I could never support.

But it does sound fun.

[-] 1 points by bullfrogma (448) 2 years ago

It's just the idea of an asymptote, getting harder the further you go.

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6477) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

the problem with the current system is that it gets easier the further you go

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Cool. Sounds like fun.

[-] 1 points by bullfrogma (448) 2 years ago

It was pretty fun, that sweet spot it created made it so people had similar levels of power and opportunity. Not like some games where the way to win is to just be more powerful that you crush things, but it made the battles more fun and complex because you needed strategy and wisdom to prevail, not just hulk smash.

I know you were talking about ways to help pay down the national debt, but i've often thought about how this asymoptote structure, being taxed more the richer you become, could work in our society to make it less about money.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

I certainly support progressive tax approach, More income, more tax.

I'm not against cutting deficit, paying down debt, I just don't buy conservative fear mongering, that the high deficit/debt means we must cut (I'm against starve the beast!!) pgms for the 99%.

Raise tax on wealthy, cut tax/personal debt of working class, pass jobs bills, reward insourcing/punish outsourcing, & cutting defense spending will allow deficit/debt reduction.

the working class don't need a tax cut

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

Sure we do. Maybe you don't. But the rest of us do.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago

rent and paying interest on loans gets expensive

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 2 years ago

gotta cut our taxes/debt. but not for the wealthy.

[-] 1 points by MattLHolck (16833) from San Diego, CA 2 years ago
