Higher Taxes may force Phil Mickelson into Retirement

105 posts in this topic

I'm going to type this out really slowly.

I would find another job.

I never said anything about walking out or outright quitting.

Yeesh.

The amount of time it would take to break even from quitting and finding another job with the desired pay increase vs staying on board until another job was secured.

Lets say I was making $4k a month and my benefits were cut and was seeking $5k now.

If I quit my job like Fuzz said I said I would be losing out on the $4k per month. 6 months later I secured a job that paid me $5k. It would take me 2 years to break even on that move.

or compare if I continued working for $4k and found the same job for $5K in 6 months.

comprende?

I think you're getting a tad too deep there...

You WOULD quit your job, but you're saying you'd just find another one first... well, duh. We're not all Phil Mickelson.

btw, I typed that really slowly.

It was fuzz who drove me into detail.

I felt like I had to break it down to the ridiculous for him to comprehend.

Anyone giving almost 40% of what they earn to the government is pretty disgusting. He should move to another country with lower tax rates.

He'd take flack from liberals claiming he's running from his obligations. Another country, another county, another state, another bank in a Carribean island...it's about covetting what people have that drive liberals.

I understand what you are saying. I don't think that you and I have the same definition of quitting.

If I turn in my 2 weeks notice, now or in 6 months, I am still quitting my job.

I just think that it's funny that a program that you so very badly wanted, is not nearly as nice as the program that you have now.

That's not even talking about property taxes, sales taxes, and the sort.

Who on earth argued that public insurance would be better than private? Do you make up stances for people then argue with them like they said it?

I feel like our resident conservatives have swung so far right they've become almost certifiable

The option is needed and I stand behind the fact that it will work and benefit us as a whole.
