Funny how things have changed.......now the productive are tax slaves to the unproductive......but your last post and my response probably belong in a different forum
Please spare me the sour grapes you've just fermented into whine.

The highest income tax rate in the 1950s was 91%. That was when we built things for the common good, like the Interstate Highway System. And we had one of our greatest Presidents, Dwight D. Eisenhower.

We were subsequently emancipated, although since the 1960s the cost of no longer being tax slaves means that our entire infrastructure is dying and the debt we leave our children will make them tax slaves.

The only people who will benefit from this irresponsibility is our generation of selfish and irresponsible fuckwits, misled by the American oligarchs who now run one of our political parties (and don't mind at all if our government colludes with the right wing oligarchs running Russia and protected by one Vlad. Putin).
