Linkat has deliberately posted misleading comments about our tax system.
I did not - I just posted what your own tax system states is your tax rate.
I even stated there could be other factors including deductions and so forth in which I am unaware. I made it clear that there could be other factors.
I explained that I have relative experience in the field - I have a masters degree in economics as well as a bachelors in finance and economics along with over 25 years experience in the finance field. I've worked on both the accounting and tax side of things for investment products. So I have a good working and educational knowledge of these things - I also made it clear that I do not have experience in your country's taxation.
I made clear my strengths and weaknesses in the area. So I did not deliberately mislead anyone. I was very clear.
On the other hand - you continually change the subject to what I was stating to muddy the waters to fit whatever agenda you seem to have in place. You insult people and make assumptions - where are your facts that I have an opulent lifestyle and I do not care about poor children? My own children is working part time so that she can raise money to travel to south america to help build homes and work in a clinic for poor children. We do not have the money so she can do this so she went out and got a job to pay to volunteer for this - I know, I know- that sounds opulent and as if we do not care about poor children.
Not once did I insult or degrade your country's systems whether it be healthcare or your taxation or how you treat your poor. I am respectful others that are different from me and realize that there is not one right way to do things. All I did was just state the facts as I understand them.
You start ranting about murder and opulent lifestyles and Sandy Hook and killing children.
One these items have nothing to do with what we were discussing, two you have no facts just opinions on the matters, and three it is very offensive for you speak so easily about something so close to where I live - it is not only rude, offensive and completely cruel to so easily speak of young children being killed without experiencing it or having any intimate knowledge of it - I would have expected something better from you - I would never stoop to this level - and there are plenty of personal things that you get upset if anyone even comes close to touching upon. But I will not go there.
You like to show one side of things the negative side when you disagree - not any positive side of something you may disagree with. You show a deep anger and misunderstanding of others rather than trying to understand and be open to understand things that are different.
I have not once stated whether higher taxes were bad or not - I simply stated that your taxes are significantly higher which pays for healthcare therefore your healthcare is not "free". Not sure why that sets you off - it is a fact.
As I stated before one is not necessarily better than the other just different. I do not know your healthcare system so I would not venture to criticize - whereas on the other hand you do not hesitate to criticize anything you do not agree with in complete disregard to offending anyone but god forbid anyone else on here were to ever touch upon something that were to be personal or come across negative to you. It is your way or the highway.
I feel sorry for you - sorry that you will never be in a position to see the positive side of things to let your anger go and learn from others. Be open to those that have a different opinion or to learn from facts - that is what happens when you are closed mind and angry.
