Debate this: What someone else is earning is of no consequence to you unless you believe in forcefully taking that money from them or from the company; that’s called socialism and communism. If you feel a company makes too much money then don’t buy its products. If you are angry that you are not as successful as you would like to be that is not anyone else’s fault. Get another job or an education that will improve your lot in life. Taxe rules and regulations are at the hands of congress men and women who make the laws. Direct your anger at your reps and senators. Posted May 6, 2024.

Debate this: “The entire community gladly shares the burden of education. What is unacceptable is that the standards of education continue to be substandard, the quality of the teachers is being infected with DEI instead of raised with merit and the expansion of the administration is over and above the community’s ability to pay. Unacceptable, unacceptable and unaceptable. ” Posted March 26, 2024.

Debate this: ” We need to simplify the multi-thousand page tax code so that everyone pays an equal share of their gross income. Now, that’s fair.  The “effective tax rate”  is the average percentage of taxes paid for each progressive bracket of income you fall into. Most wealthy Americans own businesses and they will simply raise the prices of the products they manufacture to pay for increases in taxes they will pay. The low to middle income classes will be stuck paying for those tax increases by paying more for stuff they buy. The top end tax bracket in 2023 for single person filers earning $609,351 or more is 37%. The low end is 10% for those earning $11,600 or less. Corporations pay a flat tax of 21% on profiits.”  Posted March 27, 2024
