Of income, or wealth? For an example someone who makes $104,000 a year is in the 5th quintile of income, on the contrary you need a net worth of around $600,000 to be in the 5th quintile of wealth. You need to make over half a million dollars in order to get into the 100th percentile of income. And to get to the final point the 59th< percentile pays about 95% of taxes and the 100th percentile pays about 40% of federal income taxes. Stop crying about your “not paying their fair share” BS. Graduate middle school and get a job. Get a dog if you’re not happy, baby sit for a friend, grow a garden, go to the gym, start eating a healthy diet, etc. you’ll be happy in no time.
The only reason America isn’t up there is because there’s a bunch of angry atheist blue haired lesbians burning down building and naked men marching around cities. Happiness is a choice. What dictates wether you decide to covet other people’s possessions instead rejoicing in your own. All it takes to be happy is a pair boxing gloves, a dog, a shooting range, an oddly large amount of philosophy books, and at least two siblings.
What exactly is the “rich”? Is it the 5th quintile? Is it the upper half of the 5th quintile? Is it simply anyone over the 51st percentile of wealth? I’m pretty “the rich” that decide our political opinions is Mr. 82 million voters.
Well, you’re forgetting something a huge something. Conservatives believe in equal opportunity, liberals say “If you’re a minority that joins our party you get free cookies”. When you constantly offer a positive reinforcer to the equation of course they’ll vote for you. It’s the same reason Nikacado Avocado’s morbidly obese, he kept getting money from it. When you say “Here each time you poke yourself with a needle I’ll give you a hundred dollars.” People are gonna keep poking themselves with needles. But speaking of abortions, how can you say liberals aren’t the real white supremacists when most Planned Parenthood facilities are built oddly close to areas with a large amount of minorities?
