That means that there's a good chance we're about to get a look into the ins and outs of Google's advertising backbone: what information is shared with who, and when."
However, there are ways to do so. One good example, jump to the next generation of planes:
"Another way of cutting our losses would be to abandon the fifth generation fighter entirely (apart from existing Raptors and F-35s), and focus instead on the development of sixth generation fighters. Expectations for Gen Six fighters generally focus around stealth, supercruise, and networking capabilities, potentially with tailless configurations, the capacity for the installation of laser weaponry, and the possibility of unmanned operation. Several other countries have played with this concept. Japan, Russia, India, and France have all examined the possibility of skipping the fifth generation and moving directly to the sixth. Expectations of relative great power peace over the next decade, combined with still-large Cold War-era fleets, have made this a plausible option.""

Lets first look a single person making 20k a year they pay no federal income tax, $1240 in FICA that's 6.2% in taxes they have paid. Now lets look at sales tax items, lets say they pay 10% sales tax on everything else that's $1876 for a total tax rate of 15.5%. This is not a true rate as this person would qualify for tax credits and assistance which are not accounted for.
Now lets look at someone making 40k they pay $4k in federal $2480 in FICA , $3k in property tax we'll assume they don't have a mortgage to deduct
Now lets look at someone making 100k they pay 18k federal 6k FICA, their property taxes will be around 8k and lets pretend that is all the taxes they payed that's still 32%. Even if this person defers the taxes by investing the money they still will pay taxes on it when it's moved out of their IRA, 401k,
Rich people don't earn the majority of their money as income
Profits from any companies they own are counted as income, capital gains are taxed as income once the stock is sold. How exactly are the rich earning money without it being taxed?
Since that time, there has been a large segment of the population who, while still gaining the benefits, and using the services of this country, have actively refused to live up to the basic responsibility of living in this country. They have acted like leeches, sucking the life out of this country, using up it's resources, and driving the future generations into massive debt. They can't be bothered to pay for the government they use, because they're greedy, self centered, egotistical, myopic assholes, who don't give a damn about this country... just about themselves. They are nothing more than thieves, stealing from the future to ad their pockets in the present day.
How much should the top 10% of income earners pay? Is 50% of their salary enough? Currently the top 10% pay 70% of all federal income taxes yet only account for 40% of that income while the bottom 48% pay no federal income taxes.
In the 1940's, during the war, millions of men were called up to fight, with hundreds of thousands paying the ultimate cost for this country. The top marginal tax rate was over 90%. Now, we are paying close to the lowest rates in 60 years, and there's no requirement to submit to a draft for military service... yet we still have a segment of the population who bitch and whine like little toddlers with shit in the diapers that taxes are too high. These people are THE problem in this country. They undermine everything that this country has ever done, and spit on the graves of those who gave their lives making this country a better place... all because they're greedy little bitches.
No one likes to pay taxes, but taxes are the cost of living in society. As for the ones stealing.... those are the worthless little bitches who don't support this country, even after using everything this country offers every day.
In the 1940's only 30% of the population paid no federal income taxes while in 2013 48% paid no federal income tax that is the highest rate since the 16th amendment was passed. How many people should get a free ride on the backs of all hard working Americans? Who is stealing? It certainly is not the people paying the abundance of taxes.
Some people will invent regardless if a system is in place but there will be fewer people bringing those inventions to market. I doubt you have ever been through the prototype and testing phase of a product, it can be very expensive as multiple iterations are needed to get the product ready to go to market, then you have tooling costs where you can go through multiple iterations too. These are iterations that your competitors won't have to go through and can offer the same product for a significantly lower cost. They can charge the same amount and spend the extra cash on marketing or keep it as profits, a luxury the inventor doesn't have.
A patent system is needed to protect inventors, they deserve a chance to make their money back. Unfortunately many companies take full advantage of these protections and use them as market barriers. The best example I know of is due to the greenhouse gass ban on CFC's inhalers, the new propellent used was HFAs and a patent wall was put around them, my son's inhaler went from $15 a month to $150 a month. I'm all for shorting the term to 3-5 years but inventors need to be protected.
