If you are on your computer, highlight everything in this link except (click to show) and right click to select "open in another tab" then save that tab in your bookmarks. That is much easier than copying/pasting/editing the links from the gifs on the site.

Philosoraptor Meme | I GUESS BOTH COULD BE CONSIDERED GREED | image tagged in memes,philosoraptor | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
If the government has to fund defense and infrastructure projects for the common good, trying to avoid paying one’s share is greed. If one lives off welfare and never tries to earn a living, that is also greed.

Staying home and collecting benefits, when you are capable of going out and working, is greed to a certain extent. However that name is just the tip of the ice berg.

Yeah, there are plenty of four letter words that would apply.

I understand what you are saying.
You can disagree with what I believe taxes to be, many people do.
What is your definition of "one's share"?

Income tax doesn’t bother me that much, but the code is too complicated. I would prefer a 10-20% rate with no deductions for anything.

If anybody thinks they can run a society with no taxes and no help for the less well off let them go ahead but if the whole thing collapses within a year don't say they weren't warned.

With all the talk about taxing the rich, we hear very little talk about taxing the poor. Yet the marginal tax rate on someone living in poverty can sometimes be higher than the marginal tax rate on millionaires. - Thomas Sowell

Well remember a lot of wealthy people are not being paid a salary from which the government can tax them under income tax laws, they're money probably comes in the form of dividends from stock they own, they're only liable for Capital Gains Tax, which can be differed if they reinvest that money. The comparison is apples to oranges, see?

They're getting f**ked because one of two reasons: 1) They like getting f**ked, 2: They made unwise decisions and now they got themselves stuck. 3; They aren't try to better themselves. I'm self employed, it's just me, sometimes a few helpers, I've chased hurricanes and in less than 90 days put $460,000 in MY pocket! I've made a million lost half of that made another million and so on, I'm always looking to at different things to make money! I'm 43 and semi retired sitting here on my iPad f**king around on ImgFlip! Why? Because I can, I earned the right to sit on my ass and make memes! You got to want to be wealthy, or successful, it's not going to fall into your lap in a cubicle!!
