The point is that the top fifty percent take home over ninety-five percent of all income, so they should be paying most of the taxes. The math is only simple if you aren't willing to do it right or do more »

Please give us a breakdown of percent of total earnings paid in taxes for each of those groups. It might not support your point of view. more »

If you are consistent, then you also thought the Patriot Act was government overreach.
Otherwise you are just overly partisan.

Compare apples to apples. Poverty and inner-city life are very different.
Until you account for those factors, you are still using biased data.

If you are referencing pre-1960ish, then you should study American History again because you have no idea what you are talking about. Strom Thurmand was a democrat once, then he switched parties to th more »

Any discussion about crime rates without mention of socio-economic factors and urban population is useless. Should we throw around white multiple murderer stats? White murder suicide stats? Do you eve more »

Never let the truth get in the way of a good stereotype.

Maybe he was just standing his ground when this guy got out of his car and approached him. Do you know how many kids today smoke pot and have inappropriate pictures of underage (15-17 year old) girls more »

No, I think disingenuous is the right term. You intentionally compare apples to oranges and pretend they are they same. If the numbers are different with some level of statistical significance within more »

To state those crime facts without the context of living situation and socioeconomic standing is disingenuous. Is the crime rate for suburban upper-middle class blacks any different than suburban uppe more »

Are you sure that the fact that he IS the president isn't the reason for increased racial tension? Not him specifically being president, but one of his "type". I can't wait until a woman gets elected more »

Waking back to his parents house. Not breaking any laws. Not carrying anything illegal. Yet, he is being followed by an older man in a car. Why? When the guy gets out and approaches him...who should more »

When the comment is specifically about how this administration is different than others, then referencing others is the only logical rebuttal. Unlike many other partisan fools, there it's no denial of more »

The point is that all of a sudden you are hyper-sensitive to misleading/false statements from the POTUS. Clinton was a liar, the Bushes were liars and Reagan was the least believable of all. Please do more »

Have you forgotten about the Patriot Act? Go back and see who was for and against this act. If you ever believed that "those who aren't doing anything wrong have nothing to worry about", then please d more »

There are so many holes in Mr. Jacoby's argument it is almost laughable. First, compare teachers to employees of equal eduaction and experience, then argue try to that they are overpaid. Second, when more »

People should read Charles Seife's recent book "Proofiness" and how it challenges the mathematical reasoning (or lack thereof) of many accepted ideas. He specifically mentions the Laffer Curve and how more »
