I here all the time about the pathetic lot of the upper 2% having to pay more taxes.

Yet when I was carrying those boy's rifle in Vietnam, I scarcely heard a word of protest about the ability of the same people, indeed, almost all the upper middle class' ability, to buy their way out of combat and sacrifice for their country. (I so much enjoy the bellicosity of chicken hawks. Cheney is a nutless wonder)

So I have an idea. As a rider to the tax increase. If the person who's taxes are being increased agrees to five tours in Afghanistan, we'll waive the increase.
