    that the only taxes we're hearing anything about are on income.  The RICH get about 50% of their wealth from capital gains...and the max tax on that has been 15%...next year 20%.

    Still way less than what people pay on sweat earned income.  This is an "under the radar" item...because common folks don't get into this much and don't know it's happening.   Do we think Congress is that stupid?  No...it's just another pay back to their benefactors.

    And yes...most of them are stupid...but they've got their hands in your pocket and mine and everyone else's....and they're smart enough to give a good screwing as long as we let them.   Sadly!

    The longer I live, the clearer I perceive how unmatchable a compliment one pays when he says of a man "he has the courage to utter his convictions." Mark Twain
