    Pathetic on their part for being lazy.


    I have a friend who had a job offer and he said can he wait a little longer so he can collect the rest of his unemployment?

    The job offer went to somebody else.....

    Jobs are out there all over the place. The COVID relief helped for a short time but people will be forced to take starvation wages again soon enough. Donít you worry about that!

    Still waiting on all the ďdataĒ you say you provide (see your post #5038) and in particular, data on the four destructions* listed above.

    *sounds a bit like the four horsemen of the apocalypse, doesnít it?

    There won't be any data since we only have practical data for the progressive income tax. We do have a flat tax for corporations, but they also have far more deductions than the average household does.

    Yeah, but as I said, I am just waiting for ANY data ó data on the destructions wrought by a progressive tax would be icing on the cake (in other words, since itís clear that you believe it is destructive, Iíd like to see the data on it).

    Some of the results of a progressive tax on the rich would be what doesn't get done. Jobs do not get created, buildings do not get built, $$$ does not get invested.

    Tough to come up with graphs, charts and images of what does not get done due to $$$ not being available.

    Agreed.

    At the same time tough to assert that these things would get done ó absent a progressive income tax program (not could...would).

    Iím not sure what economic things are going to happen without a progressive income tax (or with a flat tax), so I donít go around bloviating about how destructive it is unless I have something to back me up.

    Iím not even sure that there isnít in fact data out there to support his contention, but damn if Iím not going to call him out until he provides it.

    Of course jobs are out there. People don't wanna work and wanna keep cashing those unemployment checks.

    A one time $1400 payment isn't causing someone to not take a job...come on this is common sense.

    South Carolina has decided to allow a firing squad to execute prisoners on death row. They canít get the chemicals to kill people so rather than use it as an opportunity to kill people another way.

    They've been shelling out unemployment over the past year that goes well beyond the stim check. I'm sure you know this but you just wanna pretend like it didn't happen.

    Do you have money? Do you want it to be worth less than what it is right now?
