But, looking at your imaginary scenario, if that person did it LEGALLY, then I have no problem with it.


I gotcha.

I hope I never get that in love with an ideology...because it is sad even to see it in someone else.

@Frank Apisa,
I believe in the free market, not an ideology.

I believe that anyone has the right to earn as much as they are legally capable of earning.
Its not up to me, you, or anyone else to tell someone that they cant do something thats legal for them to do.

Unless, you are willing to make it illegal to earn over so much.
Then you need to set that arbitrary amount, and judging from what you have said, that amount is $500,000 annually.

I think we could ask congress to set up some sort of cap...although I much prefer raising income taxes at progessive rates.


Libs are all for imposing limits on others until their own income gets set at a limit they feel is below their own potential...

Communism and socialism were both pieces of ****.

The only reason capitalism looks so good is that it is being compared with them.

But as now constituted...it is as reeking a pile of **** as either of those other two.

Until we finally get a rein on it...it will, in the end, be just as destructive at they were.

But in order to "finally get a rein on it"...we will have to shitcan American conservatism.

Luckily for us...American conservatism is doing its level best to shitcan itself.
