That isn't how I see the world, but it's not far off it.
Tbf, you see the world from a biased lense - everyone does!
Hello Alex. Happy new year.
I have a question for you; which world would you rather live in?
World A: There is inequality. However, people have the freedom to do well (therefore, equal rights and some opportunity equality). The poor would have a better quality of life than they would under a more equal system (due to MNCs offering lower prices, private investment, etc.) What I am trying to say is people are paid based on contributions, demand and supply and although people are unequal, the poor don't suffer that much.
World B: There is more redistribution of wealth. However, there is a disincentive to work due to high taxes and generous benefit payments. The government works against human nature and worsens the "class divide" by assuming a severe one exists. Basically, they're wiping people's arses for them without encouraging self-sufficiency.
I don't earn 400k
Ill past the email I got from my boss
"All, please be aware that starting with pay date 1/4/2013 (tomorrow) all employees will see a decrease in net pay resulting from the recent 2013 tax changes that was signed into law today.
Some highlighted changes:
The reduced Social Security rate of 4.2% has expired effective 12/31/12. The tax rate returned to 6.2% in 2013 (starting with tomorrow’s pay check).
Withholding rate of 25% will return to 28% for all supplemental wages effective 01/01/13.**This includes all/any bonuses paid in 2013.
Medicare Tax for wages paid in excess of $200,000 increases from 1.45% to 2.35%
How can I get more information on the tax changes for 2013?
Please visit and subscribe to ADP’s “Eye on Washington” web page, located at www.adp.com/regulatorynews for the latest updates.
If you still have any questions or concerns after reviewing your pay checks tomorrow, please contact me.
Those democrats always screw me in the ass
On the fiscal cliff thing, John boehner and the rest really need to resist Obama more. He is destroying our country and not enough people are trying to stop him.
It doesn't have the worst schools in the west. Stop making stuff up Alex to support your anti American hate.
I bet you don't understand logic much tbh. I do computer science so I think I know more about logic (and pretty much everything) than you.
The USA is a force for good. You just don't wanna accept the fact. The old European empires were bad, but the USA is not the same. If you have to label the USA as imperialistic (which it isn't) then you should say it is a benevolent empire.
Maybe because the funding is too much and could be better spent on either other welfare areas or on defending our nation from attack. US education is good. Judging by you, education in England isn't so good.
If the USA hadn't invaded then communism might have taken Asia which would have been followed by Europe and finally the rest of us. The USA was fighting for freedom and the bad actions of a few American troops soiled the US' good record.
It's not propaganda that the USA is not imperialistic. We are a good force for the world.
That's just your own paranoia speaking. Republicans want to make the USA a better place for everyone. The democrats try to suggest that the poor cant make money themselves and are hopeless without government support. This is clearly not true.
The USA is not imperialistic. Where it has interfered in the affairs of others it has only helped those nations, Vietnam included. It would have been far worse had we not invaded. South America is screwed up because we didn't have a chance to help them to be more like the USA. If they were then there wouldn't be any issues there. The USA fights for freedom, democracy and what is right. That is what American values are.
It hasn't destroyed me but Obama has definitely made me poorer. I have an email from my boss telling me my taxes are going up and I'll be making less money on 2013
So much for only taxing the rich
That's just your opinion. Capitalism is about equal opportunities. Private schools mean less people in public schools which makes them better for the poor. Why are you complaining?
The USA isn't imperialistic. It never was and never will be.
nor do i! We should help the poor, but punishing the rich is not the right approach. And nor is taking away the people's choice of healthcare insurance. Capitalism is about equal opportunities. The free market takes care of everyone, not just the rich, not just the poor.
