You know, Crinkle, that most rich people have EARNED their money? That most of them pay their taxes? That most of them have jobs?

Now the ones who sit on their butts all day and collect welfare deserve to have the money taken away. Not the hard-working entrepreneurs who abide by the laws and do what's right.

@Crinkle, urrgghh.. Reading your "I'm leaving Junction City.." thing just.. Oooh.. Really makes me mad.
Basically, you're like, "I'm gonna vote, HAH, not like I care about people in my community or anything, psssht! It's not like I'm gonna live here my whole life!" You have no idea how much that pisses me off. Mad

This goes for other voters who vote like this too. Who vote for anything 'just cause' they arent gonna be in this certain community, state, or country their whole life.

Its like, gee, I wonder why you wanna leave so badly... Because there are people like that who make ignorant decisions such as that one.

Think a little more about others here.

The rich work for their money as JediJoe stated. Its not always fair, but some poor people just plain out made some really dumb decisions, while others are just dealt with the wrong hand of cards & thats understandable that the rich SHOULD help with that.

But that tax isnt gonna do anything for them. NOTHING!!!!! Its just gonna make it harder for people & create more of them people who were dealt with the wrong hand of cards.

Okay.. I'm done with my rant now..

No.

Most rich people are not greedy.

I don't know how many times I've heard this very WRONG stereotype. Alot of rich people I know aren't afraid to spend money. And there are lots of rich people out there. The only ones who make themselves known are the greedy scoundrels.

True James, if people actually have worked for their wealth honestly, then I personnaly think they have earned that wealth.

My family is what I would consider 'Well-Off'.

My parents both came from families with little money. My mom's family had like 8 kids, divorced parents, etc. My dad's family just had no money. When my parents started the Montgomery Heating and Air business, it was just my dad going to peoples houses and fixing their stuff. Now we have full blown employees, a fleet of 4 trucks, and the cash flow to keep us afloat. My parents have worked an hour for every dollar they've earned.

This measure wont DIRECTLY affect us, because we dont make enough money, BUT I WILL affect our suppliers. Which means our prices will rise, profit will drop, and we will lose customers. Thanks Crinkle, for making our lives that much harder.

Yeah, I know for a fact your dad works like crazy all the time. And I can respect someone who works to earn their wages. Yeah, it should have failed, but it comes down to this. In general people are stupid and simpleminded. They are not capable of comprehending cause and effect, and don't think things through when they make decisions. Thus these measures passed, Democrats control everything, and Obama is president....
