    Romney says it’s killin him not to be President. Old Doc Capitalism says take two small companies every four hours, swallow ‘em down and — in a couple of days — he’ll feel just as spry and youthful as did back in his heyday, when he was consuming tens of millions in small company pension funds every month and calling it ‘commission’ instead of cannibalism.

    The Doc ALSO says the Mitt-man should pay something north of the nice conservative tax rate he’s BEEN payin (0-14% most years), so the neighbors will think he’s as good a citizen as he thinks he is. Gotta at least LOOK like an ant.

    The problem (for those of us that actually get up each morning and go to work) is that that “stuff” isn’t free! It may not cost those that have their hand out but it doesn’t come from the tooth fairy either!

    I’m sure you pay more income tax than required by law, correct? If you don’t like the tax laws, talk to your legislators.

    “If the ants are supposed to be the Republicans in the toon, why is it they who are dying off while the minority voters are the ones multiplying like insects.”

    See S-F story “The Marching Morons.” Not PC, but interesting.

    It is not “free stuff”, as the right tries to say. Everything we need for society to function as a whole is paid for, by us, to be there when we need it. Our taxes should go to more than just the military – they should be there to help us when we can no longer work, when our company folds, when we are sick and need help, anything to get citizens back on their feet to be a constructive member of the society.
    Do I care that my hard earned money goes to pay for someone else’s unemployment? No. Why? Because I may need it at some point as well.
    Will people abuse the system? Yes. They have and will, but as a whole people want to be constructive, and the incentive should be there for them to work hard and earn what they want. Capitalism is also abused – or do you think Berinie Madoff and Enron are heroes. I think an individual scamming $20k is far less of a crime than a company or trader scamming hundreds of billions. Both should be punished, but how many executives from Enron, WorldCom, or other corporate thieves have served time?
    Whenever we try to let capitalism reign without enough regulations, people lose. Then all that can be said is “you invested in the wrong company”. Enron destroyed many retirements because not only were their employees left out to dry, but they conned several popular mutual funds into investing heavily with them. I was young enough that I didn’t lose a significant amount, but I know a few colleagues who had to come out of retirement because they went from having $2-3 million invested in their retirement funds, to zero. THAT is what we want to prevent with “entitlements”.
    We need a fund that everyone pays into that cannot be taken away by a few greedy CEO’s.That way, if you know you will have enough to live on in case of emergencies or retirement, you can afford to make smarter investment decisions to ensure that you are well taken care of instead of being duped by investments that promise a higher return that should be considered too risky.

    Doc and you are both hypocrites. What the Dems and other libs voted for in the latest couple of elections is for others to pay more taxes, especially the evil rich.

    No one is preventing you from paying more than you have to in an attempt to decrease the deficit. If you did, I’d believe you really cared. I’m sure, however, that you pay as little as the law allows, but you feel free to demagogue others who do the same, because you believe they aren’t entitled to the same laws you are. You take advantage of the tax laws and are virtuous; others do the same and are evil because you don’t like them. Hypocrite.

    ^ You tell ‘em, Ionizer. Those Liberals are just mad and jealous because we Rich wrote the tax laws to benefit ourselves and they didn’t.

    “Romney was promoting personal responsibility.”

    That was funny!
    If you draw you can get into this business.

    “I don’t want the rich to pay more than I do, percentage-wise, I simply want them to pay the same as I do,”
    If you really do, then you should be voting libertarian. Our lovely and overly complex tax code permits the left to say that they sticking it to the rich while providing them with loopholes. They count on ignorance, at least the right don’t disguise favoring the rich.

    80% of people on some form of public assistance work at least one job, many work multiple jobs. Of the other 20%, many of them can’t due to disability. Yes, there are some who freeload off the system, but how does that even begin to compare with corporate welfare and subsidies? I’m a liberal and have never been on the public dole. I work, I pay my taxes, I volunteer and I donate. This ‘Candy Man’ mentality is nothing more than a straw man, easy to beat up. I know a couple of people on food stamps and other government assistance, they are both Republican.

    What’s a bloodsucking tick like him doing addressing ants? The ants are the ones who actually do the labor of this country while him and his fellow bloodsuckers make laws that enrich themselves to the detriment of the rest of us.

    The rich wrote the tax laws to enhance their own fortunes, not yours.
