Man, I just watched the new Robin Hood movie and left a bit confused.
First, the movie. It was IMHO a pretty decent movie; better than Iron Man 2. I'd say it was a cut below Bravehart, but good nonetheless.
I was confused a bit, though. Everyone cheers for Robin Hood, but then gets all pissed off when you do something as "wild" as say that there shouldn't be an income tax!
Please to be explaining!
Hi, don't know about that, but I noticed the critics said that Russell Crowe got the accent wrong! Evidently it sounded like a cross between irish, northern England and Australian. he was very annoyed! lol
Well, if you're talking about the United States (because I'm not sure about the attitudes of other countries) I would say that most people are afraid of what will be lost if there isn't an icome tax. Maybe more information about the Fair Tax should come to the forefront? I'm not sure a lot people understand it and/or see the benefits.
I'm all for NO INCOME TAX!!
As for the movie, I haven't seen it yet. Although, I thought the 90's version was entertaining.
I saw it the other night, the French accents were also not so French, but an entertaining movie. I think it helps anyone who goes to see it that it's the story before the real legend begins.
it's not russel crowes best performance, a movie that you can take or leave. parts of it are just boring.
this is 12th century England, a rather barbaric time period.
The question illustrates the problem. There is a difference between the cinema and reality.
I think anyone would look at a different form of taxation to replace the income tax. The problem is that everyone thinks someone else should pay.
The current system exempts capital gains from the proper income tax rates. Basicly, a fat cat who inherited millions and makes a living off the cream - stocks, bonds, etc - pays HALF the tax rate (15%) of a working professional who pays up to 35% tax on income from a paycheck.
The government provides essential services - we would disagree about what they are - but they have to be paid for. If you have a better plan, we are all ears, but don't talk about eliminating income tax until you have a better system - with numbers to back it up.
The FairTax would help the taxation system be more fair and according to some things I read would actually help the government get more money. You can't avoid taxes with it.
I was under the impression that fat cat would lose 50% of his inheritance to the death tax.
I am asking. Not arguing Doug.
