      Yes, it's true.  East Hampton, NY, the Upper East Side, his prep school in Rhode Island, the UK, Yale, Columbia and Vermont are all flush with Canadian dollars.

    I always liked Burlington.  I had a drink with Bill Lee there, his son was pitching that day and Bill was still in his baseball uniform... though I thought he said he played softball that day. I can't really recall now (1999).

    In Response to Re: SCHILLING'S firm is in trouble? : You're confused.  If you buy something with your hard earned money, and that something generates income for you, you pay taxes on the income it generates.  Not on what you've put into it.  If that something costs you money (you sell a stock or home for a loss) you do not pay capital gains taxes - in fact, you can write off a capital loss. Have you noticed how readily CEOs agree to work for an annual salary of $1?  That's because they receive bonuses and dividends that are then converted to capital gains.  Then they pay 13% instead of the top marginal rate of 36%.
    Posted by slomag



    No I'm not confused.

    The money you have in your pocket has already been taxed.

    Then taxed again when you buy and then sell at a profit.

    I've already said in prior posts that the tax loop holes need to be cleaned up that the top 10% of earners pay 60% of the income taxes that 50 percent of earners pay no income tax. I don't care how rich they are that's not fair. Everyone has to pay something.

    I'd prefer a flat tax.

    Income tax aside capital gains tax is too high it hurts the economy by discouraging investment.

    I was just having fun. Vermont is a nice state, Burlington is a nice town.

    I worked in a lot of areas in VT in the 80s. I installed a phone system in Bridgewater across the street from what was then a field I'd walk across to fish the Ottauquehee River after work every night.

    On the field today is the Long Trail Brewery. A great beer too.

    When I worked up by Middlebury doing some work for Shoram Tel installing a fiber ring for their subcribers service we all stayed in the Middlebury Inn and could walk downtown to the bars everynight and drink the locally brewed beers and play darts, it was a good time and a nice town.

    I'd prefer a flat tax, too, but capital gains cannot be exempted.  

    Here's a scenario for you - you and I work the same job at the same salary.  We both invest in a stock.  You work harder than I do, and put in longer hours and show more initiative.  You get a raise the second year.  At the end of the third year, the business tanks, and we're both laid off.  You have made $15K more than I have, but my stock has increased $15K in worth while yours has not moved.  I decide to sell the difference to make ends meet.  Who should be taxed higher on that extra $15K over 3 years?  Your income or my capital gains?

    Usually when we're talking about capital gains we're talking about stocks or homes.  If you buy stock in Burger King, you're relying on a lot of people you don't believe are paying into the system.  The cashiers and janitors are the guys you are talking about not paying into the system, but without them what would your stock look like?  They don't pay property taxes, but the guy who owns their apartment does - what would he do if he couldn't find a renter?

    The top 10% of wage earners control 80% of the wealth.  If they are paying 60% of the taxes, then that doesn't sound like enough.

    How about those that pay no tax.

    and I really don't care how much wealth of the country the rich control. I read recently that 30 percent of millionaires is family wealth the other 70 percent earned it in their life times.

    I know a few self made millionaires my younger brother is one. We grew up in a low income housing project in NY, 7 kids in three bedrooms. We had nothing.

    My brother worked his butt off and still does, and left a few cushy jobs that most people would be happy with, he took chances went totally broke a few times.

    To say he has too much and should give more to the system is bs.

    The rich pay enough the spending needs to stop.

    This is Obama's game the politics of division, the rich are evil they control too much so he can redistribute to all the have nots who in turn vote for him.

    Sounds like the seeds of the Bolshevik Revolution.

    This man needs to go. He's destroying this country.

    4 more years of this and we're done as a world power.

    Um, TWM, if you grew up in a low income housing project, then the Government has already helped you and your brother out.  If anything, he should be more willing than most to give more back.

    Not everybody pays income taxes, but if they work they pay payroll taxes, and medicare and social security.  And if they don't they still pay sales taxes and they pay rent, which contributes to the income of those who pay income and property taxes.

    We moved from a slum into a low income housing project and the government helped us out?

    You don't have a clue.  The housing project was worst then the slum.

    I'm sure it was terrible, but it was Government subsidized.  You were a have not, and you were living off the taxes of the 60%.  You don't feel any obligation to give back now?  Maybe help raise the standards of housing projects across the US?

    I'm sure I give more than you do and enough as far as I'm concerned.

    And it's not the money that I give that I have a problem with, it's the way its wasted.

    And spent by politicians who use my tax dollars to buy votes.

    My friend, it seems to me that you really have issues with successful people.

    This is very sad.  You shoud emulate success instead of viewing them as hosts for parasites.

    What would emulating success be in this case?  Sucking off the government teat until a million dollars falls in my lap?  TWM said his brother quit several jobs and 'went broke' several times.  What do you want to bet there were some unemployment claims involved?  What other Government aid is in their history?  Food stamps?  Wellfare checks?  Medicaid?  

    Basically, his position seems to be that Obama's socialist policies are creating a wellfare state, which is only acceptable for his immediate family.

    When I was in my twenties I had two friends (both Liberal) who went to college and collected unemployment, they never really looked for work. I don't assume only Liberals do this stuff.

    I remember I lost two jobs in my twenties and I did not collect unemployment because I thought only losers collected unemployment.  I was wrong about that though... not everyone who collects is a lazy loser.

    Am I rambling? U Betcha!

    I'd say you're leaping to a few conclusions.

    No one in my family takes hand outs, no need to when you can work.

    There are always jobs out there, always will be.

    Do you really believe that every family needs Obama and liberal government programs to make it through hardships?

    Talk about stupidity. Dead beats do.

    If you're not afraid to go out and do what it takes to bring home a paycheck you'll always be ok.

    There are jobs out there if you really want to get one.

    I leapt to the conclusion that somebody spewing all this right-wing garbage about socialism and handouts had never taken a dime from the Government.  But then, you didn't even realize that the projects were government subsidized, did you?

    You obviously don't have the capacity to understand your own hipocrisy, so I apologize if I offended you.

    PS. Obama should, and will be re-elected comfortably in November. You can take that to the bank!
