According to Internal Revenue Service data, the entire taxable income of everyone earning over $100,000 in 2008 was about $1.582 trillion.
That's interesting, because the GDP in 2008 was about 14 trillion. Considering about 20% of the population made over $100,000, there should have been about 1.8 trillion there even if that entire 20% made ONLY $100,000 a year. With a GDP of about 14 trillion, and considering the wealthiest 1% of Americans have as much money as the bottom 90% combined, well, the wealthy are making out like bandits if that's all the IRS can squeeze from them.
Sounds to me like "taxable income" means "what they were actually required to pay" and not "what they could have paid if it weren't for tax cuts and loopholes."
Ok, now we're going to get slash fiction of Wint x Kachi somehere... rule 34 and all...
Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.
Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
