Who Decides What Fair Share Is?

So they did it to us again. "Once more into the breach" if you will. At the eleventh hour our so called leaders rammed through more pork laden lunacy disguised as a fair budget deal. It seems every year we avert disaster by these wise souls. What a laugh! These suntan spray salesmen are absolutely worthless if you ask many.

And now, they are running the victory lap and they, being primarily on the left side of the aisle. Hoorah! We are soaking the millionaires and billionaires. Happy days are here again. Just more political theater of the lowest order.

If memory serves, aren't we all to be treated equally in the eyes of Lady Liberty? What is up with creating this deep division over this nation amongst the different levels of income earned. I personally find it despicable. Equal is equal. No PHD needed to decipher that.

The irony is that many of this administration's most  loyal supporters are being unduly punished in the job market over these inane policies and the unforeseen consequences therein. I say inane as the policies are not well thought out and provide little to no relief to the symptoms affecting this country. What makes Washington convince its inhabitant's that they are omniscient? Must be the water or better still the royal treatment these poobahs receive. We know "power corrupts absolutely" and Lord Acton was dead on and ahead of his time and of course most wise in revealing this observation.

The so called rich are in my opinion, paying way more than they should. Witness the accompanying IRS chart for confirmation and I would suspect, only an unreasonable person might object. Numbers do not lie. I am of the mindset which presupposes equality for all. Extrapolate this sentiment and it yields "we all pay the same rate". Simple concept but pollution circulates and inculcates the minds of many which proceed to get whipped into a frenzy of envy and jealously. Just a few deadly sins.
