Quite interesting ( and admirable, I must say) to note a self-made member of the Forbes 400 publicly call for a greater tax burden on himself. We, at “Daycoup” a college city/campus deal start-up with mobile apps on Android and iPhone platforms (daycoup), hope to meet with people as yourself someday!
Designed to generate 6 million jobs and assist 4 million small firms, a few of the incentives were tested in the 1977 Jobs Tax Credit
He is wrong about taxes. The United States of America was started because of unfair taxation, the exact same thing we have now.
In a condo association, those who pay the most, have the most say. But in our system, each person gets one equal vote. Democracy is 2 wolves and 1 sheep voting to decide what’s for dinner and that is why we have a republic.
Government is so far out of control. We need a REVOLUTION! Those in Congress are all guilty of treason because they have not upheld the US CONSTITUTION. They pass laws and exempt themselves. Do you think Washington, Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, etc… would tolerate that? Of course not, and that is why there is the SECOND AMENDMENT. But government doesn’t fear the people because they outgun the people. They talk about criminals outgunning the police. But that’s the tail wagging the dog.
Anything else should be left up to the private sector including and especially education and health. The government has proven its incompetency in these and other areas.
On the same site, now note the little known threat of multiple nuclear meltdowns from a very possible Solar Superstorm
Don’t you find it odd that most of your tax dollars go to Washington, DC instead of staying in your community or state?
Then read A New, New Deal, on the same site. It is designed to use well proven private capital techniques to grow the economy and generate jobs with small business the focus.

That last item, encouraged to occur on a 24/7 basis, may save millions of lives. In the process, it could Mississippi installment loans generate far more jobs than might be imagined and reboot the economy.
-Standing Up for what is Right- Mark, guys who think like you give me hope for the future of your nation and other nations in desperate times. (The youth taking charge in the Middle East also offer such hope.) The way things have been going, the arguing heard and seen on the divided US media by thoughtless evangelists, Fox Network in particular, the negative condemnation of the poor and disadvantage by many forum posters, doesn’t give much hope for the future of your nation. Your lone voice speaks above them and should be supported and spoken out loudly, far and wide, by those who believe in the dignity of all sentient beings and those who truly wish all nations to support the needs of their citizens.
-Many Talents Make a Nation- A complex nation is made up of complex and varied citizenry, and in that mix there are many great talents. Every nation is made up of great athletes, artists, entertainers, great thinkers, entrepreneurs vested with great ideals and dreams, skilled craftsmen, caring people who sacrifice their time and efforts for others, individuals who try their best with whatever skills they possess. Yet it is only those who have the skill to make money that are held up as truly successful and valued for their beliefs on how our world should be designed. Some of those moneyed people are kind, caring and sharing. Some actually earn their worth through honest enterprise that creates jobs and support their communities. But from the look of America today, most do none of these services. They make money purely by monetary manipulation and speculation with little regard to the harm they do to the nation. Were it not so, then 1% controlling 90% of a nation’s wealth might be a good thing.
