[quote="homecomfort]Charity donations are voluntary, so who , in their right mind counts that, oops, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why, good republicans totally believe that people who do not have to actually work for their money should pay half as much in fed. taxes, therefore, requiring actual workers to shoulder the difference in money that is not collected by the gov. Bringing up charitable donations in the subject just provides more devastating proof of the lack of brain cell activity among republican supporters. Lick their boots if you love to, but do not include me in that . Republicans are bad for the country, Democrats are Good for the country, but since we live in an imperfect world, the better half are stuck with ya's like the plague and poverty.[/quote]
Of course you can't for the life of you figure it out. You work for someone else and don't have the capacity to run your own business. So you are always looking over the consumer side of the counter. Well theres that and the likely case you don't have enough gray matter in the noggin. I don't think there should be ANY tax on investment income. Investments are what drive the economic engine of this country. If the tax on it was removed you'd see this economy take off.
