THE 2 PERCENT don't share. That's why they are rich. Their fortunes are offshore, sheltered from paying taxes, making the rest of us pay more.

THE POST OFFICE does not make its revenue based on delivery because that would be impossible. Postage and sales are their revenue. Duh!

AGAIN THE Republicans in the state House and Senate want to give education funds to their private school friends ... another plan to eliminate public education?

A MANAGER OF a Pilot store can't pay employees $8 more per day while he gouges customers? He can't be serious!

WHY IS IT politicians who claim to be independent always seem to vote Democratic?

TO WIN POLITICAL office by gerrymandering, your district is like an athlete getting a big edge over competitors by doping. It's cheating to win.

THE OIL COMPANIES must be having trouble changing over to summer blends. Prices went up, then down, and now way up. Bless their hearts.

GUNS DON'T KILL people. Oh, wait, they do!

TENNESSEE HOUSE says it'll pass the guns-in-cars bill not because it is needed but because it keeps them from doing important business. Really?

I WOULD REALLY like my sons to go on a Boy Scout camping trip with gay leaders and members. A real learning experience!

I SUPPOSE if the 100 people camped outside of the new Chick-fil-A are gay protesters they will not get a free meal.

Why is it that politicians who claim to be Republican vote Democratic?

Your ignorance is breathtaking. Share what? The 2% pay over 60% of income taxes already. How much more do you want to steal from them?

By the way, Has anybody else noticed the left turn most of these rants have taken? Not one conservative rant today, not one. Same old Times Free Press.

"The 2% pay over 60% of income taxes already."

Your ignorance is breathtaking. The top 1% pay 37% of the income total income taxes. The top 5% pays 58.7%. The bulk of the income tax falls on those not in the top 1-2%.

"How much more do you want to steal from them?"

Nothing is being stolen from anyone. If you don't like paying taxes, then don't live in America.

Taxes in Russia a pretty low. Maybe those who object to supporting the US would like to move there.

Timbo says: "Not one conservative rant today, not one." Really? So, conservatives do support gerrymandering, and off-shore accounts so the rich can evade taxes? I suspected as much.

When the people who now pay no taxes get their skin-in-the-game we all will be better off including them. The politicians will be less likely to try and over tax anyone when all are paying attention.

slEasy321...when I don't think you can be any dumber, you go one step further.

Percentiles Ranked by AGI

Percentage of Federal Personal Income Tax Paid

Top 1% $343,927 36.73%

Top 5% $154,643 58.66%

Top 10% $112,124 70.47%

Top 25% $66,193 87.30%

Top 50% $32,396 97.75%

Bottom 50% <$32,39 62.25%

As usual, you're info is biased. The bottom 50% pay 2.25% of all income taxes and you think that's fair.

You proved my point you imbecile. You socialists are warped.

Are you mentally retarded?

"Top 1% $343,927 36.73%"

From my post:"The top 1% pay 37% of the income total income taxes."

"Top 5% $154,643 58.66%"

From my post:"The top 5% pays 58.7%."

"As usual, you're info is biased."

My information was exactly the same as the stats you just posted. Again, are you stupid or illiterate?

Here is what you originally said:

"The 2% pay over 60% of income taxes already."

As you can see by the stats that I and yourself provided, you were wrong. The top 2% DO NOT pay over 60% of income taxes. Are you stupid or illiterate?

"The bottom 50% pay 2.25% of all income taxes and you think that's fair."

I didn't say a word about it. Try again.

"You proved my point you imbecile. You socialists are warped."

You have to be the dumbest son of a bitch I've ever come across.
