It IS Time To Tax Investment Accounts



August 02, 2011 – Comments (5)

IT'S TIME TO TAX bank accounts, investment accounts, retirement accounts and insurance policies...including gold/silver 
All of the above were key beneficiaries of the $23 TRILLION dollar GOVERNMENT bailout/handout/entitlement payment 
Many Fools want to tax/cut wages and benefits of Unions, Teachers, Police Officers and Firefighters because they think they are bankrupting America. I agree. 
But if we are going to tax those that are bankrupting America....nobody pushed the ball further than those who got Financial Asset ENTITLEMENT payments.

Most of that went to only a few people...the top 10%......and we could get most of it back.  A 99% tax on anything over $10K would be a good start.  As the price on everything fell, it would be much easier for our Seniors and people ACTUALLY working to afford to live.

A post like this screams that you are feeling lonely, ignored.

I recommend you go outside and expose that graveyard tan to some sunshine.

Our poor, poor Alstry has finally lost it.  Not even the most rabid Progressive would go for this "solution".  Tax everything over $10K @ 99%.  Yeah, that would go a LONG way to helping seniors already relying on meager returns from retirement investments, SS and pensions. 

Not to mention bringing the entire economy to a screeching f'n halt.  Idiot.

Alstry is. He's a sock puppet. He incessantly writes posts promoting his own (really cheap and ridiculous) web site, recs his own posts with ghost accounts...and sometimes even engages in conversations with himself using other profiles (hence the sock puppet designation).

He's rather a strong study in the lengths a person will go to to get attention.
