Too much.

The SS tax is probably the tax that I hate the most.

14.2 % of my taxable income going to fund that program. If I make 90K per year, do you think I will ever see more than 5% of the cash that I sent to SS in my retirement years.

You should like it, There is a regressive cap on it. They don't tax you on anything you make over $114,000.

The electoral college system is a relic from before instantaneous cross country electronic communication. It has no place here today.

Exactly.

True popular vote is exactly the best solution.

A vote in NY should carry exactly the same weight as a vote in Montana.

A Repub vote in Mass is worthless...just as a Dem vote in Wyoming is worthless.

Can't think of any logical reason to keep the electoral college.

the smart money was AHEAD of the cliff because they are smart and have balls. once the uncertainty was over, the market responded properly.

smart people never ever never ever wait on the govt.

nope. i started one thread about making sure people adjust their portfolio for the cliff. never once did i say doom and gloom and to sell. but to be prepared.

never at least looking at what you own in stocks or your retirement plan and just assume its always going to go up is not wise.

today was one day out of 360(give or take some bank holidays) and you always have to just pay attention to avoid getting blindsided.

If by fabricated hoax, you mean sensationalized with the help of ben bernanke, then sure.

If you mean something like an illuminati distraction away from the truth, then please go on.
