bhcompy: Fissile: This is why we need a 95% tax rate on the wealthy.

Her gambling addiction provided more economic value than a 95% tax rate on income she didn't earn because she inherited it.


==================

America needs a 95% inheritance tax on every dollar over a million.

Spending that money on infrastructure repair would have produced a much greater multiplier than pissing it away in a casino.   The US ranks 26th in internet service, below such counties as France........hell,  the Czechs have better phone and net service than we do.    Yeah, I know, boot-strappy, tax cuts, free market, millionaire job creators, Ayn Rand, blah, blah, blah.....

Man, I'm praying for a comet strike.  Please, please, please, please.......

TwistedFark: Abe Vigoda's Ghost: Fissile: This is why we need a 95% tax rate on the wealthy.

Hard to tax money that was not on the books. She embezzled from a charity.
But don't let facts of the story get in the way of your class warfare shiat.

They're still not giving it to you.


And I don't want it. I make my own way through life. Sometimes it's been shiatty, other times pretty good. I don't worry about other people being better off then me because they had the luck of being born into wealth, or amassed it on their own. I'm certainly not foolish enough to believe that handing extra money to the government is going to improve my life in any way. It will however improve the lives of the politicians.

According to TFA she only embezzled $2 million from the charity. The rest was her former husband's fortune that she inherited. But don't let facts get in the way of your total bullshiat.

I knew a few people that were addicted to video poker. Addicted sounds weird but I don't know how else to describe it. Once they sat down at a machine they would just get a trance-like stare.  We drank at a bar with a couple machines for "entertainment only". One guy would show up on Friday cash his check in the bar and start playing till he was  broke or the bar closed. I've personally seen him lose $600 or more paychecks often. Didn't go over with the wife and finally cost him his family. Poker machines are devil boxes.

/ I go to Vegas at least once a year but you couldn't force me to sit at a poker machine.

MrBallou: After losing the first couple hundred million, wouldn't the thrill kind of go flat? I'd at least want the illusion that I might win.


Negative attention is just as addicting as positive attention. The brain's  reward centers are funny that way. '

That's why losing at gambling is just about as addicting as winning. It's also why trolls keep trolling if you tell them they're idiot losers.

FTA: "The attorney added that her net loss was in the end was $13 million."

Still a lot of money, but it ain't no $1 billion.

O'Connor frequented Las Vegas where she was given VIP treatment.

Ya think?  People losing $1 BILLION to the casinos tend to have the casinos very happy to see them.  Was Rick covering this story?
