There are a lot more taxes than income and capital gains. Add up all the gas tax, sales tax, excise tax, property tax, dining tax etc. and before you know it you're talking about real money. <br><br> Vote Yay Vote Nay [i]Now watch this drive

And, if it's truly about the oil then we attacked the wrong country, we should have invaded China who will be challenging us for more and more of the stuff very rapidly. The saudi's and other oil producing countries are under our "control" only in the sense that they make the most money off of the States. As soon as China becomes more profitable, they'll whore themselves out to China instead of the U.S.<br><br>**Edit- I do agree with nutty's assesment of payback for trying to assassinate his dad.<br><br>Also, the recent links from Russia probably played a part if indeed the information is credible, and I don't think Putin would be lying about it.<br><br>
Hey I'm an F'n Jerk!® twitter.com/SgtBaxter facebook.com/Bryan.Eckert
it's high economics, so i don't want to go into that since neither of us has enough understanding on this issue. all i can say is that there are MANY who disagree with you on that in the Middle East. <br><br>

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> i think it's funny that all of these "millionaires" you are railing against are for a gov't that taxes them more and not you, but you guys who aren't "millionaires" fight tooth and nail to protect them at your own expense (increased property taxes, increased user fees, increased state taxes, increased everything else). i wonder if they are using some weird jedi mind trick on you? <p><hr></blockquote><p>A Jedi mind trick! But there really is no other explanation is there. The Bushco apologists who will never have to worry about those gouging taxes incurred on stock dividends. Ranting about the 70% of taxes paid by the top three percent of the ultra rich. I can fathom Rush Limbaugh. He's rich and he makes a good living tending the sheep.<br><br>But the rest must be a Jedi mind trick. This Moore movie must be messing with the mind trick big time because the sheep are sure restless.<br><br><br><br>

About oil .. <br><br>If it was about stealing oil, wouldn't be easier to just steal oil from Venezuela? It's closer. Also, if it was about stealing oil, why didn't we do it in 1991 while Saddam's army was in ruin? Wouldn't it have been easier?<br><br>****************<br><br>
