We Have a Winner!

The best comment ever has been made:

Warren Buffet sacrifices a lot less when he gives up 10% of his income than does his secretary when she gives up 10% of hers

But we as a society lose out on a lot more by taking Warren Buffet's income than his secretary. He has shown that he can use that wealth to create vast amounts of wealth. His ROI is much better than what the federal government is going to get on it.
His secretary has never created jobs and wealth for others, like Warren has. Wouldn't we be better off as a society if Warren was able to keep his wealth to generate a bigger pie for us all, rather than trying to just take a slice of his and divvy it up among us?

Yes, the rich are just better people and we should give them all of our money so that they can make us all as rich as they are!

I'm going to pass out.

Well of course, because gov't. is all about "ROI," & has nothing to do w/ anything else. By the way, what's the "ROI" on hundreds of billions of dollars spent annually on the "defense community?"

It's even dumber because Buffet has been a vocal critical of the Bush tax cuts for years.

Wealth doesn't trickle down.

How stupid do you have to be to believe that it does?
