After saving up tens of thousands of dollars, taking three luxury vacations a year, paying for private schools, donating nearly $20k to charity and generally paying for an upper class life style completely, we only have thousands left over!

quality nugget:

Quote
She talks about her desire to be black at a young age.

"I would pretend to be a dark-skinned princess in the Sahara Desert or one of the Bantu women living in the Congo ... imagining I was a different person living in a different place was one of the few ways ... that I could escape the oppressive environment I was raised in."

She would rub mud on her hands, arms, feet and legs, she writes.

I think it's making a dig at wealthy people who blow obscene amounts of money and then cry poor but it's hard to tell.

Jesus, no one pays an effective income tax rate of 40%.  The highest bracket isn't even 40%.

These people are morons.

Or they're trolling and then they're fucking geniuses.

Yeah, cause that's what actual geniuses spend their time doing.

40% including state and local taxes is possible in places like NYC, but that'd be marginal not effective

And even then the state and local taxes are itemizable deductions on your federal taxes if you itemize.

hey I remember this one week several years ago, when every conservative I knew was saying half their paycheck goes to taxes and they all committed the same exact fallacy, pointing to the difference between gross and net, and assuming the difference was "taxes".  in every case, I walked them through it, and discovered with them that much or most of the difference was elective withholdings like 401k and health insurance.  it was a dumb misconception and i'm sure every one of these people would have realized it beforehand if they'd thought about it for even a second.  but they were all in some weird unthinking mode, where they had to "confirm" that we all lose half of our paycheck to taxes.  I assumed it was the fox news talking point of the week ("we pay too much in taxes.  just look at the difference between gross and net!"), but I never looked into it.

lots of people simply don't understand how marginal tax rates work for some reason, too.

so the new hot take is that obama getting paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for giving speeches to bankers is just a successful black mean earning money by the sweat of his brow and you alt-left trolls would see him re-enslaved with your criticisms!

people are so "woke" that they are buying into this, lol

eta: dunno is this really belongs here tbh, didn't feel like making a new thread.
