    One thing we know for certain: Whoever invented the phrase “A rising tide lifts all boats” owned a boat.

    “A rising tide lifts all boats” … Not if there’s a hole in the bottom.

    Sometimes a rising tide ebbs because there are too many “taxing” drains on it or when too many people feel entitled to reap the benefits without contributing to the pot!! Let the cynical liberal retorts flow in now.

    I agree with Quaero4 completely, too many rich people want to have expensive wars and yet don’t want to be taxed to pay for it (or anything else such as our rotting infrastucture) And I’m not a liber btw I’m a moderate

    Some believe the fall of the Western Roman Empire was due, in part, to the refusal of the wealthy (Senatorial class) to pay taxes.

    I wonder, with the tax code so complex that nobody can fully understand it—and just in case they do, it changes every damn year—isn’t it time to start over with a fair and simple tax, making it impossible for the rich to evade?

    Still, sometimes a rising tide does lift all boats. 120 years ago, there were not too many cars available to the average man, nor antibiotics or other effective medications, nor calculators, nor fountain pens, nor a hundred thousand other convenient and cheap devices.
