Well, that's it. There's no incentive left to be wealthy. Might as well walk away from the mansion and go lie down in a cot in some shanty in Cambodia shivering and sharting on yourself from dengue fever. Obama's pretty much made it the same existence.

I'm curious how the rich managed to survive when their tax rate was 92%.


I've worked since I was 15, and even with a Master's degree, I can't afford anything but a small house. Can I have your mansion after you abandon it?

TofuTheAlmighty: they're indisputably and actively trying to implode the economy.


Has this really been in dispute? By thinking individuals, I mean.
