    I would LOVE to see an increase in Cap Gain taxes.  We've all been pushing for that for YEARS.

    Obama raised it a little, but there is still PLENTY of room to go there.

    Im just not sure why would we be looking to see the market go down or why we would be upset in seeing it go up.

    The diary seemed a little confusing to me....

      I know,  Don't worry, be happy.  I like Bobby McFarrin, too.

        Wisper asks a legitimate question and you give him a snotty answer that explains nothing.

        I'm a "right-wing freak show," or at least that's what one nobody on DKOS seems to think.

          position that is akin to painting myself into a rhetorical corner.  Too many obvious blind alleys and known trapdoors there that people have debated for decades and never seem to find their way out of.

          Forgive me, but I'd rather not.

      it would be good for them to lose a shit ton of money. I hope they lose it all. I hope Wall Street goes broke and because of all the bullshit in DC the politicians can't get it together to bail them out and Wall Street is left to go broke because the scumbags don't invest they gamble and they fix the outcomes as much as they possibly can. They are scumbags that don't deserve our respect. There should be all sorts of taxes on transactions on Wall Street.

      So mark me down as person who cannot stand anything about Wall Street put me down as someone who thinks they do way more harm then good. It is time to destroy them and start again.

      I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

        of the US economy that would make the real Recession of the 1930's look like a boom. The people who would come out on top are those who have cash and access to cash. Those aren't the poor folks.

          We need to bottom out in order to rebuild. If not we are going to be stuck in  rut we are never going to get out of.

          I'm getting too old to wait around for incremental change. The rich folks just keep getting richer at every increment and we keep getting screwed. I don't see how it gets much worse.
