Amen!!! I love to hear the corporatists say "taxes were already paid on that money" as if we were too stupid to understand that capital gains are only paid on earnings above the invested amount, on which taxes were paid.

Just as bad is the Social Security tax, which is capped at $103,000. Above that, your taxes just went down by between 7.5 and 15 percent. Nice!!! Fore them.......

investing is for the devil himself, lets just just take Soros, Buffets, and Gates money.
