    our criminal taxation rate?

    Yes, I am hopelessly naive to think that legislators will utter the words weeks before an election.

    I don't care. It is the trickle up economy that is the foundation on which this mess is laid. Until we address the fact that families who make $351,000 per year pay the same tax rate (35 percent) as those who make billions, all of this is window dressing.

    The U.S. is among a handful of nations, Hong Kong, Gibraltar, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, without VAT. What do we have in common with those countries?

    Without the balloon of cash floating in the stratosphere ending up in the hands of investment bankers, any credit malfeasance would have been much harder to hide for so long.

    I've always wanted to be somebody, but I see now I should have been more specific. -- Lily Tomlin
