      Wierd, Savings doesn't mean anything these days, it doesn't build value anymore. You can't accumulate Capital if by Savings the value is vanishing! It reminds me of that old Russian Joke: "In America the stores are full of things to buy, but nobody has any money. In Russia we have plenty of money but there's nothing in the stores to buy!" These Progressives think nothing of taking everything from Americans in their Cost Of Living, but the accumulation of Capital in America is all but impossible! And for some reason banks aren't Lending. I say "Income Tax vanishes the People's Capital" and smart people hit the banana peel! Even Republicans can't think what I mean. I made three thousand dollars one year, it was one week of work but they taxed it like it went on all year. By the time the Government refunded my money it was too late, I had lost my Astro Van. It cost me $20,000! Of real value.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
