  •  Right (0+ / 0-)

    The income tax on incomes over (pick an amount) should be close to 100%. Especially in so-called wartime.

    •  Well I would not agree to that but... (0+ / 0-)

      I would agree to a war profits tax on nearly 100% of all profits made by corporations and their officers on the Iraq war.

    •  So you are advocating (2+ / 0-)

      slavery?
      Wikipedia:

      Slaves are held against their will from the time of their capture, purchase, or birth, and are deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to receive compensation in return for their labour. As such, slavery is one form of unfree labour.

        There was a war profits tax of 90% (over a certain amount of minimal profits) to fund the war and to compensate for all of the corporations making lots of money from the war effort.

        If we are at war, the war corporations should not have excessive profits...it only gives more incentive to continue fighting.  Take the profit out of war and the war will stop really quickly.

    •  Ah, no. (0+ / 0-)

      Progressive taxes, yes. Confiscatory, no.

      The Cubs WILL win the World Series in '07. I'm not saying which century, though.
