He isn't? Is what you mean that this story has no merit because it's O'Reilly that debated it? Or do you mean that O'Reilly is untrustworthy because he's on Fox News? Or is just Bill O'Reilly himself you think is untrustworthy? Or are you insinuating that the story is false because it was on O'Reilly?O'Rielly isn't the most legit news source I hate to say.
Actually that picture was just a dig on O'Reilly, not on the tax plan. And I didn't make the picture: Apparently there are others out there on the net who seem to think that O'Reilly is full of shit too!So when you say "you're proving me wrong" in this context here, you must be intimating that you support a wealth tax? ...as contrary to the principles of this country as possible, almost literally.
Otherwise, your little picture has no context here.
...once more, proving that you and I should, in point of fact, be running this country.Actually that picture was just a dig on O'Reilly, not on the tax plan. And I didn't make the picture: Apparently there are others out there on the net who seem to think that O'Reilly is full of shit too!
I might lean liberal (gosh what a shock, eh?) but I also think the Flat Tax plan presented by Steve Forbes, a Republican, (yes, I agree with a Republican) seems to make the most sense. It's not a 100% perfect plan, but it has some reasonable foundations in there.
A wealth tax is generally conceived of as a levy based on the aggregate value of all household assets, including owner-occupied housing; cash, bank deposits, money funds, and savings in insurance and pension plans; investment in real estate and unincorporated businesses; and corporate stock, financial securities, and personal trusts. A wealth tax is a tax on the accumulated stock of purchasing power, in contrast to income taxes which is a tax on the flow of assets (a change in stock).
The United States Constitution prohibits any "direct tax" on personal holdings (as opposed to transactions such as income or capital gains) unless the revenue collected is apportioned among the states on the basis of their population.
Bingo sonofabitching bango. I cannot even believe that people are talking about this in any serious manner.Blade, I dont care if O'Reilly is an idiot or not. The mere fact that libs are even considering this to have even the SLIGHTEST chance of being a good idea makes me wonder what kind of brain control the Democrats are using. There isnt even a debate here. It is absolutely preposterous, in any language, by any race, on any planet. You cant seriously think that the "text", as you call it, for "we are going to arbitrarily take your shit because you have more than we think you should because we are the government" is good for anyone. Rich or Poor.
