It is totally understandable why members of the Billionaires Club would have a hissey fit at the idea of paying taxes at the same rate those who actually produce something. However even they should be able to comprehend why the wage slaves are not totally repulsed by phrases like "To each according to their contribution". This feeling is reinforced when those who make Billions (notice I didn't say EARN) on Wall Street etc. attempting to justify their special tax perks and incomes on the fiction that their money is at risk when the Fed. bails them out, allowing them to keep their profits, and shifts the losses to those who pay earned income tax rates.

The Libtards are winning largely because the only priority of the Republican party is preserving and expanding the wealth of the uber-rich. It was the ONLY issue in the last Presidential election. Given a choice between raising taxes 1% on those who have reaped the benefits of technical progress made in the the last 40 years and destroying forever the idea of homosexual marriage, abortion and every other Libtard agenda, they would opt for keeping the current tax laws in place.
I perfect example example of REAL problem the party faces, something the article ignores. I am a 64 yo White Christian Male living in the South (Georgia) with an MBA and a JD and despise Libtards (see urban dictionary definition of term). General wisdom is that I should be a hard core Republican. But I am not. The problem the article ignored was WHY Bush II was anointed by the RNC. The RNC viciously attacked McCain and saw to it that Bush II was crowned leader because McCain had reservations about THE, and THE ONLY issue the RNC is concerned with, making the Uber Rich richer, including cutting their already LOW taxes even more. Ditto in 1012.They anointed a cult member who's ONLY platform was continuing the tax cuts.

You are so right. I just retired after working at CDC for 20+ years. They actually counted having meetings as progress.

But we have real choice. The people who rule Washington also rule the state and local political parties. The one thing they agree on is fighting any competition from a third political party.

Looking at it from another viewpoint, taxation is the act of taking something from an individual. Before 1913 (Federal Reserve Act), the only way the government could take from citizens was to actually take either property or cash. However the Federal Reserve Act gave the government an easier way. Just print more money. The more there is of something the less value there is. This allows the Federal Reserve to impose a tax by inflation any time the Fed. sees fit. The only way Cypress differs from the US is that the money on deposit was is Euros, thus the national government could not, by itself, generate a taking via inflation. Those with cash in American banks could see an inflation tax MUCH higher than the Cypress tax.

The idea of taxing property is not new. It has been happening in America for centuries. While we gripe about it, Americans have come to accept the idea of a property tax on everything from our homes, to cars, to business inventory. Property is property. Why should the person who decided to use their money to buy a house (with income which has already been taxes) have to pay property tax every year whereas the person who decided to put their money in the bank does not have to?
Republican politicians are against Big Government. Unless of course they can make a buck out of it.
PS: I am not a Democrat either.
The Republican party doesn't give a damn about the people. Only about their own power, and furthering the goals of their masters, the one percenters. And they wonder why they having problems getting votes.
So why was the student suspended for questing the authority of the instructor. That is the issue of the story.
