back to rable-rousing

September 9th, 2010 at 02:52 am

I'm sure I've spelled that wrong.

There's been so much discussion here in the states regarding who is middle, upper-middle and rich, all with the move afoot to increase taxes or get rid of tax breaks to the "rich".

How about my definition of rich, aka who would get taxed or non-untaxed?

Rich: President of the United State's salary and above. The POTUS salary happens to be $400,000.

Advantages:
1. President takes one for the team and can tell people so.
2. For the business/owner/CEO: Are you really taking more risk than the president? Really?
3. For the public sector guy: How did you manage to make more than the President of the US?
4. For any athlete whom you don't like: You are not having a better year, either.

    Yeow! I had no idea the POTUS makes that much now.

    I think that has been the POTUS salary for quite a while, hasn't it? Oh, and I love #2. And #4, which leads to a whole different topic of how NBA teams seem incapable of understanding that there is a financial crisis, and still spend money like complete idiots. Can't we get some insurance of sanity and have Dave Ramsey buy a pro sports team, and run it frugally, and win a championship? That would be awesome...

    Ever since Clinton. POTUS got a payraise in the 90's.

    Don't get me started on sports. I love and follow sports as much as the next person, but why should the entire community subsidize stadium building for one owner? Seems like a classic case of privatizing the profits and subsidizing the risks. I still think that the GB Packers have the right idea.
