Also, what would be the incentive of someone to take a more physically or mentally demanding position within a company or even change companies if all work is deemed equal? Your grasp of what it takes for people to raise themselves up financially astounds me. It is no wonder that I shake my head in disbelief every time I read one of your long winded posts spouting such nonsense.

I'm still trying to figure our why having 47% of the work force not paying taxes is Okay. But high end wage earners should pay 40%, 50% and the so called "rich" should pay 90%. Seems ShivaT was always an advocate of everyone paying "their fair share." How is that "fair?"

From my experience talking with these closet socialist's is that what is "fair" is to raise taxes on everyone that makes more money than they do. They never see themselves as part of the problem, just everyone that has more than them.
