Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

That fact from George Will on Sameoldstuffolous's show.  He was illustrating how those people need tax cuts, and his horror that Obama might allow tax cuts to expire. It's not just Charlie Gibson's concern: it's EVERYONE's.  EVERYONE makes a hundred grand a year.  It's just YOU that isn't.

Actually he said, "100k a year is a chicago teacher, is a chicago cop."  So maybe he's got two specific people in mind, who inherited a ton of cash.   But that's not the wage of a Chicago teacher.

Will also stated that capital gains are received by people making under 50,000 a year.  It's true. Retired people living off their investments.  Why should I working for my fifty grand, pay full boat up to 28% on my wages, why someone who doesn't work pays 15% on their income?  What is so BAD about WORKING for a living?  Because Gibson has investments?

And Will lies and says Obama accepted premise that cutting cap gains taxes increases revenue.  If Will wants to pretend his OWN stupidity, fine.  But leave the rest of us out of it.
