You're exactly like that woman who went totally bonkers in Food Lion that day she asked me about the quality of the sliced roast beef I was about to pay for, and I told her that I didn't eat it, but that my dog sure liked it. She started yelling about homeless people, poor people, poor kids, blah, blah, blah...
What she AND YOU can't comprehend is that my money is my money. It's not your money....it's not our money....and it most assuredly is not the government's money. I earned it. You didn't. The government didn't.
Are you the purchase police? Who are you to decide what is a necessity and what is a luxury? Should everyone be driving a Hyundai or can a wealthy man purchase a Jaguar? Suppose a millionaire in Beverly Hills has a grand entrance hall at his mansion, and this fountain would be perfect? There's something evil about him? He should give that money to the government instead? He should have his taxes raised because YOU think he has too much? How do you claim any right to his money?
A cursory look at IRS statistics shows that the problem in this country is not wealthy people not paying "their fair share." Nor is the problem wealthy people buying expensive items. (If you want more jobs, you WANT them spending their money, Einstein.) The problem IS forty-eight percent of the population paying NO income tax at all, with a large percentage of them actually collecting large, taxpayer funded payouts while being totally non-contributory toward the nation.
So let's review for you and the OWS vermin: My money is MY money. I will decide what I spend it on, and I will shred or burn it before I will give it to the governmnet to redistribute it to worthless bums.
