As citizens, we're free to speculate all we want

How to Tax the Rich. Try giving them perks and privileges (an extra vote?) in return, says 'Dilbert' creator Scott Adams. WSJ:

If the rich can be taxed at a different rate, why not other differences in how they are taxed?

The president was too polite to mention it during his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, but here's a quick summary of the problem: The U.S. is broke. The hole is too big to plug with cost cutting or economic growth alone. Rich people have money. No one else does. Rich people have enough clout to block higher taxes on themselves, and they will.

Likely outcome: Your next home will be the box that your laser printer came in. I hope that you kept it.

An alternative to WTF?
