Aren't those kinds of distributions really caused by income inequality? Don't know your tax code but in the US that's the case, which is funny because it seems like everyone thinks the rich don't pay enough taxes

I pay about 60% in income tax.

I don't think it is, everyone who's employed in private sector, whether its at Burger King or black rock has an income payed by money their company generate, politicians, teachers, pensioners, welfare etc. are all payed from that pool of money created by those jobs and companies and they themself pay taxes of their wages, which then funds something else.

I would guesstimate that maybe 50% of the tax payers in the us are private sector workers.

Someone made a calculation here and it turns out in a country of 5.5 million, less than a million people generated the entire tax renevue, the rest are in some way payed by the government or children.

Those government workers are still paying taxes, even if it's effectively a holdback. Also, our tax scheme is based upon more than the federal income tax.

I bought a bottle of shampoo. I won't be able to finish it before it goes bad on account of I don't have much hair and I use small quantities, but it don't even matter because the shampoo I bought was cheap of price. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

That's an odd name for a dude. Are his parents celebrities?

I pay over 50% on my "income", if you know what I mean by "income". Wink wink.

I hope that if Los Angeles ever gets an NFL team they will be called the Guns.

(Don't anyone even try to suggest they will be called "the Rams" that will just put me to a certain mood.)

I know corporate, vat/sales, import, property tax etc. etc., but they all essentially come from the same place.

He must either have a shit income or can't park, parking downtown Copenhagen is $>8 an hour and a parking ticket is $100.

The government can keep their healthcare and public schools, I want nothing to do with them.

I'm the only one in the office. The printer just started printing something. I didn't print anything.

Do I dare read what was has been emitted? Do I dare risk a supernatural warning of an imminent death? Do I warn my coworkers not to inspect said document? Do I just sit here, paralyzed in fear?

Maybe it has all truths and mysteries of the world written on it? I'd take that chance. Then again if it is the answers to the world's questions it still won't get you laid! Muwahahhahaha!
