you do not pay 50% income tax. If you do, you are not filing your taxes correctly. And if you really are in college, you get most of those(the federal taxes) back when refund time rolls around. I know this because I live in the real world.

I never claimed to pay 50% taxes

I said I make less than $15,000 a year. I said I made around $7,500 last year. That is less than $15,000. It's not my fault you can't read.

let us assume you make ~$8400/yr before taxes.This puts you in the 10% tax bracket which puts you at $7560/yr. Assuming the 52 week year this means you earn ~ $146/week, meaning you work 16 hours a week. Lets assume an average community college tuition of (public, in district)—$2,963 for 12 credits. This means you have class for 12 hours every week (+ or - 2 hours for some courses with labs). in total, you are using only 28 hours in a week and that leaves you with 140 hours of free time. Assuming 7 hours of sleep and 24 hours of studying, this leaves you with 67 hours ($580@ $8.65/hr - time is money after all) you COULD be working. what is my point you are wondering? You are a lazy shit that likes to blame the rich for all of his problems, when in fact you are the only person to hold any blame. Fuck you, and have a wonderful life.

Firstly, when I got the job, it was in Early may, and I was still in High School. I was hired at $7.50 an hour. Calculate that into your equation. I didn't get a raise until Mid-November, where I was bumped up to $8 an hour. I only got the $0.65 raise maybe two months ago. I was going to school 35 hours a week, and working 20-25. When I graduated in June, I started taking a few extra shifts, working about 30 hours a week. Around this time last year, tourist season picked up as football season began, and they needed me more and more. From October until March, I got overtime every single week. Of course, at $7.50 and $8 an hour, overtime isn't much, especially when it was only 4 or 5 hours of overtime each week.

For this Pay period, which ends Tomorrow, I will have clocked in right around 70 hours for the week, on top of me going to school 8 hours a day 4 days a week since mid-august. Also factor in that I have a 10 month old child that happened despite Birth Control Pills and Condoms, and I do not have very much down time.

8 hours of school 4 days a week, so 8*4=32

70 hours of work +32 hours of school=102

Factor in that I go to school 45 mins away from my house:

45*8(there and back)=360 mins, /60=6 hours of driving

108 hours so far.

Factor in sleep time at around 5 hours a day, so 5*7=35

108+35=143 hours.

I do a lot of studying via Audiobooks, usually while doing other tasks, but I do have textbook work and papers to write, so say another 10 hours a week doing that.

143+10=153 hours.

I work 10 mins from my house and 35 mins from school. about 3 days a week I go directly from school to work, and the remaining 2-3 days I work I leave from home. Let's round and say 90 mins of driving to work from school, and another 90 mins driving home from work, and to and from my house to and from work, making another 180 mins of driving, which is three hours.

156 hours of total occupied time, give or take ten. 168 hours in a week, minus 156 hours occupied leaves 12 hours a week I could be doing something other than what I am doing now.

But it's cool for you to assume I'm lazy as fuck. It seems that a lot of people on the site are assuming so.

*edit. 70 hours for 2 weeks. subtract that, making it 47 hours a week before factoring in the baby, which I forgot to do in the comment. Assume I need to watch her 30 hours a week when Her mom or my friend cannot. I still only have 17 hours a week.

Its on the parentheses. 7500 [$/year] / (8.65 [$/hr] * 365 [day/year] ) = 2.37 [hrs/day]. I have no idea how high the taxes are, but conssidering 25%: 2.37/0.75 = 3.1 [hrs/day]

Very few people work 7 days a week.

I worked between 4 and 6. Lets round and say 5 days a week. First, Subtract the days When I wasn't working.

2*52=108 days where I was not scheduled to work.
356-108= 248 days left.
Also, factor in that I started in Early May of last year, removing 4 whole months from the days I worked. Jan, feb, march, and apr, so 31+28+31+30=120 more days.

248-120-148 days I Worked last year. Assume I worked between 5 and 9 hours each day I worked. Round to 7. 7*148=1036.

Multiply this by my hourly wage last year, which was $8.00 (I got a raise in Marchof this year)


I get 17% of my check taken for taxes.


There you go. I rounded quite a bit, so my number wound up lower than I said in the post. My work days were 5-9 hours generally, with a few 12 hour shifts thrown in during tourist season.

So you want to over throw one of the best countries in the world to live in? For what, what would be your plan if we did pull it off? And that's if you get lucky enough to beat the US Armed Forces, who would rape you and your retard followers in 1 week maximum. You say your different than those idiot Occupy protesters, but you are the same thing. All of those protesters are dead beat losers who are trying to blame someone for their lack of money. There are illegal immigrants in this country, who make $2,000 a year, much of that money they send back home, to their families in Mexico and other Latin American countries. So by those standards, you live life pretty well.

Oh, and people revolt when there is something to actually revolt against. When our elections become rigged, our governments begins murdering millions, and we lose our freedoms and rights, that's when I revolt.

#2837 - tonyromee (09/17/2012) [-]
Our elections ARE rigged. The popular vote does not matter in this country. Pay attention to your history, the person the people wanted in office was not always the one that wound up there. Our government has murdered a shit ton of innocent people in the past decade. Iraq did not attack us, nor did the citizens want us there. The government of the United States decided it was time to rearrange the country.

There is something to revolt. The government is supposed to be representative democracy. But the representatives are not doing what the people want. I would say it's time for a revolt. You can say I'm an idiot all you want, but you're a damn fool if you are going to sit there and tell me one of the men who shaped the country into what it is was wrong. I do not want a violent revolution of death and destruction, merely the 300,000,000 citizens of this country exercising their Constitutional right to change their government leaders. As for the military "raping me and my retard followers" As you so eloquently put it with your 8th grade vocabulary, THAT would create a real rebellion. So I would say a few deaths would be worth it, including my own.

As for what to do when we replace the leaders, I would want term limits on all Congress seats. 10 year maximum over two terms of 4 years each, with intercalary terms in between, just like the president. Put in more checks on Congress, because they have much more power than they should. Instead of having one president run a country by standards that were created 300 years ago, have three presidents; one for military, one for economics, one for civil matters. Impose term limits on the Judges of the united states. And tax EVERYONE equally. Everyone pays 15% across the board, no tax breaks, no loopholes. 15% of your income for taxes. Period.

I'm not a stupid kid without a plan. Believe it or not, as I am sure you will not, I have put thought into this. My post did not reflect that, and that is my fault for digressing from the only significant point I was trying to make.

#2839 - rjthegreat (09/17/2012) [-]
Our elections aren't rigged, they seem like that because of the electoral college system of voting that our country uses, which I'm not fond of, but its better than nothing.

Our country is not a democracy, its a republic. Although they appear the same, they are actually very different. You could look up "Democracy vs Republic", I'm sure that would explain it much better than I could.

And it is possible to pass that tax plan, but for the 3 presidents ideas, it wouldn't happen. The constitution cannot be changed. Although it can be amended, the original base cannot be changed, as it is "above the law".. Unless you want to get rid of our current constitution and draft another.

One more thing, about the tax plan. Think of it this way. If we over tax the super rich, the ones that own all the corporations and companies, they will have less money to hire people, support charities, and fund other projects. I know you think that they are taxing their personal money, and that if we didn't tax them they would keep all that money to themselves, but in reality that is not the truth. Your boss is 1 of many asshole bosses, but a lot aren't like that. A lot of CEOs donate heavily to charities, hire lots of people and pay them well, and fund hundreds of projects to make this world a better one.

#2845 - tonyromee (09/18/2012) [-]
See that's the thing with the electoral colleges though: They do not do what the people want them to do. Saying it's better than nothing is like saying having a bicycle with a knife as a seat and broken wheels is better than no transportation. It may get you somewhere, but odds are it's not where you wanted to be, and not in the condition you would like to be in. The elections ARE rigged, because the people of the country do not have a real say in who gets elected, the electoral colleges do. The colleges are supposed to vote according to the majority rule of the citizens of the state, but they do not have to. This is not the way it should be. I understand the reasoning for it, as a large portion of the voting population is unaware of the full details of either candidate, but they are still the citizens, and have a right to vote for who they choose.

As for out country being a republic, yes, this is true. However, even in a republic the people still have the right to change what the government does, albeit in a slower way.

There is nothing in the constitution that says there cannot be three leaders in the executive branch. With the cabinet system, it almost works like that anyway. When the Constitution was written, there were 13 Colonies. Now there are 50 states, DC and Puerto Rico. This is too much for one man to manage alone along with military and economic matters. There is room for a revision to allow this without undermining the entire document.

As for the tax plan, it is a much more fair way to do things. 15% for ALL american citizens is better than 17% for some, and 50% for others, and 0% for another group. Some CEOs are good, but economics is about the bottom line. How often do you hear about CEOs who have millions in their bank accounts letting go of a few hundred employees because the company is not making enough? Me, if I had a 7 figure salary, and there was the option of cutting my own pay or firing hundreds of people who rely on a 5 figure income, I would take a figure off of my own pay. Of course, I am the minority. Look at the Auto company CEOs that flew their multimillion dollar private jets to a meeting to request a bailout! Those are the people that run this country. They had the money to fix the company right there in their bank accounts, but they chose to ask the government to fix their mistake. There are good bosses who would spend their own money to save others, and almost all big money people donate to charity, but not always for the right reasons. Many donate simply to get the tax write-off. I think that's bullshit. But O'm just a 19-year old kid working a dead-end job to put himself through college and support his family. I know nothing of the business and economic world.

Dear tonyromee,
Though I have never worked in a restaurant, I do sincerely believe that sitting in "an air-conditioned room in an ergonomic chair with a pen in your hand", while 200+ employees are waiting for your choice, and one mistake may be fatal for the company and therefore your employees jobs and yours as well, is a little tiny bit harder than working in a restaurant.

This I know. My point was never to complain that I make little money, it was to explain my dislike for Romney. I just tend to digress from my points. The only reason I mentioned how much I make was to explain my background. My being poor has a lot to do with the way I see Mitt Romney. The things Romney says did the rest for me.

On a digression here, but to me it seems like the more miserable the job is, the less it pays >.>

My friend works in California as a sewage drain Cleaner for $9/hr. My boss, the manager of the store, makes $42,000 a year salary. He's been in restaurants for 35 years and makes only a decent living.

Now my father makes $63,000 a year selling cars. He started doing this 3 years ago. What gives?

Oh boy, I can't believe I'm actually doing this.

Working as a builder

got 1 object. some objects have incredibly hard planing, which is very hard to figure out, and you spend 2 weeks planing it out. got to finish it in given time. week left. not gonna make it. working 16 hours a day just to finish it in time. someone fucks up. need to fix it. 2 more objects get placed on top of that. can't complete the 1st object in time. notmyfault.jpg. if I fuck up, our company branch goes bankrupt. 1 fucked object is all it takes

If I fuck up once, not make it in time, our company goes bankrupt, we're all fucked then.
You can't even begin to comprehend what it feels like when one of your coworkers fucks up with medical surgery lamp which costs 30 000£ and it dis-attaches itself, drops to the ground and breaks, and you just thank god it didn't happen in the middle of a surgery.

Just because you worked some shitty labourer job, carrying heavy weights, doesn't mean you know how stressful and demanding it is, you get told what to do, you do it, simple.

Working in a fast phased restaurant

you know the order, you don't need to spend 3 days figuring out how to do it, you already know the recipe. the worst case scenario is, if you fuck up you loose your job, noone else does, just you, and someone doesn't get their meal in time. No big deal.

Yes it is stressful, but it is nowhere near as stressful as paperwork. Why?

Doing paperwork (secretary, accounting, etc)

You start doing it. Do it for 12 hours straight without rest. You get given even more. You are tired beyond belief. You have to finish it. 20 hours into doing it. Still not finished. You finally finish, sleep for 6 hours, go on doing it again. 7 typing mistakes in an important piece of paper, you're out.

Could keep on going. Don't have enough characters left.
Ain't even gonna argue any more. You have no idea what you're talking about kid.

From the sheer number of mistakes in your comment, I can tell you don't do any paperwork. Paperwork? 20 hours of paperwork is boring, and mind-numbing, and can be stressful, but you're sitting in an air-conditioned room in an ergonomic chair with a pen in your hand. The stress is because you don't know how to handle stress. As for errors on the sheets, all you have to do is pay attention. Paperwork? Seriously? More Stressful than restaurant work? Eat shit, anon.
