    But it had the same consequences for the election and only made you the same kind of narrow-minded bigot that you hate.
  2. Demographic changes are just a fact--I do not...

    Demographic changes are just a fact--I do not fail to acknowledge it. I already live in a state in which (non-Hispanic) whites are no longer in a majority. I haven't heard any white people freaking...
  3. We have to be at war for a person to commit...

    We have to be at war for a person to commit treason.
  4. The income gains of the stockholders do not come...

    The income gains of the stockholders do not come at the expense of others. How they choose to divide that money among themselves is a different issue.

    Any gains made among just those stockholders...

    WASHINGTON – In a rare public statement, special counsel Robert Mueller's office on Friday disputed a blockbuster report from BuzzFeed News that alleged President Donald Trump directed his former...

    No matter what years I post you complain about all the years I left out.

    In 1980 the AGI share of the top 1% was 20.65%.
  7. Please paste the post in which I said "money was...

    Please paste the post in which I said "money was speech."

    I said campaign contributions are protected free speech under the Constitution according to a majority opinion written by Justice Kennedy....
  8. Your economics is faulty if you think income...

    Your economics is faulty if you think income gains by one group come at the "expense" of others. If my income increases by $1 million and yours increases by $50,000, my gains did not take anything...
  9. Those wanting harm to come to any group are no...

    Those wanting harm to come to any group are no better than those wishing harm to blacks, gays, illegal immigrants, etc. They are in the same category. Plenty of people thought Democrats were causing...
  10. Free speech does not necessarily involve money. I...

    Free speech does not necessarily involve money. I can exercise my free speech including campaigning for candidates without spending a penny.

    How often has money determined how you vote? Did you...
  11. I only ignore things that are stupid or...

    I only ignore things that are stupid or impossible. Nobody is going to amend the Constitution to restrict free speech or the freedom of Americans to contact their elected representatives.
  12. Now you are changing the debate to how their...

    Now you are changing the debate to how their share of income grew and the context?

    We were discussing the share of taxes paid by the wealthy, their tax rate, their share of taxes vs. share of...
  13. No, you are not reading again or checking the...

    No, you are not reading again or checking the links (which you complain about when I don't give documentation).

    The income of the top 1% increased 242% between 1979-2015.

    I left out 1980? I...
  14. No candidates (Democrat or Republican) refused...

    No candidates (Democrat or Republican) refused federal funding for the general election until Obama in 2008. In 2012 and 2016 neither candidate took the money because they could raise and spend much...
  15. I know. The share of federal income taxes they...

    I know. The share of federal income taxes they paid is higher than their share of income.

    Top 1% (2015)

    20.65% Share of AGI
    39.04% Percent of Federal Income Taxes Paid

    [IRS: Statistics of...
  16. I left that part out because it has already been...

    I left that part out because it has already been established we cannot ban campaign contributions because it is a violation of 1st Amendment free speech. Lobbying is also constitutionally protected...
  17. Again, you make up stuff. I never said anything...

    Again, you make up stuff. I never said anything about income "trickling" down. As the wealthy increased their share of the income they also increased their share of the taxes paid--so they are paying...
  18. We already have public financing of presidential...

    We already have public financing of presidential elections and have since 1976. It was used by all candidates for the general election until Obama who refused the money because he could spend as much...
  19. No. I said it to refute the poster who claimed...

    No. I said it to refute the poster who claimed the wealthy would rig the law so they pay a lower tax rate than the middle class.
  20. They are already the only group paying a larger...

    They are already the only group paying a larger share of income taxes than their share of the income. That is more than "fair share."

    A person doesn't care what the tax rate is when he is getting...
  21. Just what the world needs--more intolerant,...

    Just what the world needs--more intolerant, hateful bigots who want somebody to die because of their political views (whether Ginsburg or Trump supporters). And they think they are making the world...
  22. Sorry, it must have been another poster. There...

    Sorry, it must have been another poster. There are some who celebrate because white people are dying.
  23. BS. That is the effective tax rate [IRS data]....

    BS. That is the effective tax rate [IRS data]. Throw in federal payroll taxes and the total numbers change little. The rich pay most of the taxes for the bottom 80%. The bottom 40% pay negative taxes...
  24. They don't do that now. Currently the top 20% pay...

    They don't do that now. Currently the top 20% pay 88.1% of all federal income taxes.

    Federal Average Income Tax Rates Paid:

    Bottom 20%: 1.5%
    2nd 20%: 9.5%
    Middle 20%: 14.0%
    4th 20%: ...

    We thought you wanted old white people to die?? We thought you'd be happy.
