Why Class Warfare/Soaking The Rich Does Not Work
here a link in further support of what I have said:
Had lunch yesterday at "Pizza Company" here, they were Pizza Hut once before the franchise takers in Thailand decided to increase their profits and betrayed mama Pepsi. Had to wait about half an hour before my fast food Spaghetti arrived, and in the meantime, the employees were chating away happily, and playing their favourite musics, and essentially doing nothing. Customer focus is an unknown term in this country. Watched this countless times. They don't work properly.
Seems to me they managed to unite the worst of capitalism and communism. You contributed the sickening nationalism, always good to plaster social issues, unlimited exploitation, skyhigh profits for a precious few, and a life of poverty and constant uncertainties for the many. And from the communists they adopted the personal cult, no, its far worse here, a pretetermined life without career chances if you aren't born to the VIP's, and therefore a lax approach to work. Why not? Makes no difference to earn $ 10 instead of $ 5 a day. That's not the difference between a Chevy and a Merc, that's no car in either case.
Everybody stays in the social class he's born to, the rich stay rich and care about nothing but maintaining their status, and the poor remain poor.

And that's the agenda you are pursuing here. And that will make you fail as that variant of communism did.

Then go somewhere else Genius!! Reward efficiency and good service, instead of bitching about how terrible things are. As my former mother-in-law used to say, "Either Pee, or get off the pot".

Oh, and pull your head out of your "Backside" too, so you can think correctly.

Jeeze, where is wisdom when you really need it? :twisted:

q-rat: I was surprised you had a good post.. right up until your batship crazy conclusion.

Fortunes rise and fall. The rich families of 100 years ago, for the most part, aren't rich families anymore. The richest man in America is Bill Gates. Was he born a billionair? No, he made his money himself. Before him, the richest man in America was Sam Walton. He got his start sweeping floors at a Five and Dime before he founded Wal*Mart.

If the top marginal rate is high, then the rich will protect their money instead of investing it. If it's low, then there is opportunity for the poor to become rich. We tax INCOME in America, not SAVINGS. If you have a billion dollars in the bank earning 5% you're taxed ~20 million dollars. If you MAKE a billion dollars, you're taxed ~400 million dollars. With a top rate of 90%, you're taxed ~900 million dollars.

LOW top marginal rates encourage advancement. HIGH top marginal rates preserve the currently-rich.
Oh, I forgot one other thing, which is what I do. Have you ever considered complaining to the management. And if you don't get good results, have you ever considered going up the chain of command? It works, AND you will feel better because you actually did something other than whine.

how much more evidence do you need than 50 bankers whose jobs it was to funnel money past the tax authorities now being told by their company not to go to the US.

I personally think they should all go to the US turn state's evidence and stick it to UBS. Make the whole thing public and expose the financial services industry and the tax regimes of the US and Europe for what they are.
