Or How to get something without really trying!

So far, they want free education, free food, free car, free housing, and free jobs.

They don't like police but complain when their stuff is stolen by other 'share the wealth' protestors.

They want the top 1% to pay all the taxes even though they already account for over 38%. The top 5% pay 58.7%, and the top 50% pay 97.3% of all fed taxes.

The pols are talking party politics. The other side says the lowest wage earners are paying 99% of all Fed taxes and both sides have some good resources for their figures. Comes down to whom you believe and which category you fall in, somewhat. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle. I have no trust in any of our 3, Shelby, Sessions or Brooks, who served in the Alabama Legislature as did Richard Shelby who served in the Senate as well as the AL AG office before Sessions.
*this post is corrected, as usual I had something backwards.

Please note correction to above post. Libs are saying the lowest wage earners are paying 99% of taxes not 1% as I erroneously reported in the 3 a.m. post.
Should have been in bed but couldn't sleep, turns out I could not post either, lol, at least correctly. What a Face
