You think this new tax law is “simpler and cheaper” — and will invigorate small businesses? That is both incorrect and nuts. Flies in the face of facts.

Thank you for sharing your opinion. You may rest assured that it will be given all the consideration it deserves. (wink)

Simple facts are in play here. The traditional engine of growth in the US economy is in the small business sector. They are the ones who meet growing demand first, not last. And if you tax the shit out of them or make their business decisions for them (via heavy regulation), you’re going to hamstring their ability to meet that demand and grow jobs.

Shit. That’s fifth grade math. Doesn’t even require economic thought.

You are ignorant and uninformed.

One of us is indeed ignorant and uninformed. The purpose of the discussion is to determine which one of us it is. :-)

And you represent so many like-minded, ignorant American idiots.

You want to see an ignorant idiot? Find a mirror. :-)

I quite agree that the US is in decline. The trick is to figure out where our standard of living can reasonably maintained going forward into the future, or if it’s an inevitable never ending slide where we end up looking like a gilded third world country.

The RISK is that we give into fearmongering (that would be what you seem to be all about) and succumb to the siren’s call of Big Government, and economic systems which have never worked and which will never work (e.g., large government high tax services, socialism, the stuff that Crazy Uncle Bernie supports, etc.)
