But that was the tax he took from his kid's breakfast.
This is ice cream tax.

In Denmark it would be around 50-60% depending on your income...
User avatar #19 to #17 - nefarian (10/25/2012) [-]
But isn't hospital and **** like that free?
#23 to #19 - leawesomeme (10/25/2012) [-]
Yes most hospital and operations is free.

But remember everything is more expensive aswell. Eg. Cars cost 220% more.
User avatar #24 to #23 - nefarian (10/25/2012) [-]
I live in Faroe Islands, and everything here is EVEN MORE expensive.
And we pay the same percentage of tax.

User avatar #67 to #17 - johnnybtrollin (10/25/2012) [-]
i bet most of it goes to the welfare.
User avatar #75 to #67 - fosforgasxiii (10/25/2012) [-]
It goes to immigrants. The socialist party gives the taxmoney from the working Danes to immigrants and in exchange the immigrants vote for the socialist party so they can keep their power. ****** up system, I know.
User avatar #81 to #75 - johnnybtrollin (10/25/2012) [-]
yeah i see, and the vicious cycle keeps repeating, bringing and "accepting" more bad immigrants into the country.

bad immigrants as in uneducated assholes who think they deserve everything for free and dont assimilate with the local customs/culture.
User avatar #20 to #17 - alfjnn ONLINE (10/25/2012) [-]
Yeah but Denmark is also Socialist and **** , and that money doesn't just pay for useless roads and bridges, it also pays for other things.

But you live there, not me, so I'm prolly wrong.
User avatar #33 to #20 - garyleneville (10/25/2012) [-]
'usesless roads and bridges', wut.
User avatar #36 to #33 - alfjnn ONLINE (10/25/2012) [-]
It's a New York Joke.. The City Never maintains the Roads, its such **** here, and after they finally do rebuild it, it gets ****** up in a matter of months.

Sorry, it was kind of inside.
#51 to #36 - anon (10/25/2012) [-]
I just moved to Staten Island for college and i must say the roads here are absolute **** . and it smells awful all the time
User avatar #60 to #51 - alfjnn ONLINE (10/25/2012) [-]
That's cause Staten Island is a Landfill, bro.
#79 to #60 - anon (10/25/2012) [-]
so ive been told.

Like. It physically is though. Like, not even a joke, it used to be where all the garbage went until recently.
User avatar #38 to #36 - garyleneville (10/25/2012) [-]
Ah right, cheers. I was confused because I thought that roads would be one of the things taxpayers would be happy to pay for. But if they don't maintain them then fair enough.

ping -t -l 14000

What does this last bit do? ^
User avatar #54 to #47 - dango (10/25/2012) [-]
The -l option sets the buffer size, causing overflow at the server, where the server's NIC tries to do some processing which inturn making network and processor slow.
The -t option pings the server until you stop.

after eating 38% of his ice-cream, give him something else for it!
User avatar #57 - SilentRaver (10/25/2012) [-]
I'm going to have one kid do chores for his ice cream, and then teach him about welfare by making him give me 38% of it to split with his brother who gets to just play video games.
User avatar #6 - LiteninStruckTower **User deleted account** (10/25/2012) [-]
Taxes suck. There's no way to get around it.

But using that analogy, it should be like eating 38% of a 5 gallon tub, or eating 15% of a small cup.

Millionaires act like they're getting robbed and they have nothing left, but if your annual income is $389,000 you lose $147,820, leaving you with a solid $241,180 to spend on groceries, which cost virtually the same over all economic classes and then on luxuries.

People with an income of $15,000 pay $2,250, and that only leaves them with $12,750 for necessities.

Yes, millionaires are paying a lot more, but who can still afford a family, a mortgage and all other expenses after their taxes?
User avatar #43 to #6 - masterfluffydubs (10/25/2012) [-]
because people making $389,000 only need groceries ever. They have everything else for free. Your ass-backwards logic suggests that over a third of your income lost to taxes doesn't affect someone.

The fundamental flaw with that (assuming you are even from the United States and have a solid understanding of capitalism, which is sounds like is doubtful), is that well over half of the people who are in that kind of income bracket own their own business in some capacity. When that happens (you are "the boss", etc.) all of your profitability is controlled closely by you as an individual, even though you may be responsible for the salaries of many other people, based on the money that your business makes. These people aren't "greedy" - they can't afford to be. Think about it. If you kept all of the money your business made, you couldn't buy anything for your business or reinvest, making it bigger and better. Additionally, you couldn't pay your employees, so they would leave. Your business would fail. There is a whole spectrum of costs associated with business ownership that you are overlooking, as well over half of the populous you are trying to attack for their success employ people that may very well be you or your family members or friends.

All of that aside, this is a fairly ignorant post my friend. You have two very specific incomes, and a misconception of how taxes work, I think. "38% of a 5 gallon tub"...wat. Your first analogy is comparative to 390K with 148K in taxes. That's 38% of a 1 gallon tub if anything. Surpluses like that don't exist except for the "1%", and the wealth that they have amassed is not usually is in investments, futures, etc. A typical college-grad who is *able to land a job, such as myself (and I am thankful) finds themself almost by default in a 25% tax bracket from the get-go. We'll negate insurance, and other incurred costs. I don''t know where you're getting 15%, and for that group you have to assume tax breaks...
User avatar #7 to #6 - winsauceiswin (10/25/2012) [-]
it's not the people with an income of 300k+ people are worried about it's the smaller businesses that are taxed on an individual level rather than corporate level. it's those people who need taxes lowered.
User avatar #44 to #7 - masterfluffydubs (10/25/2012) [-]

I didn't see this before responding, but yes. I elaborated slightly above.
User avatar #9 to #6 - bec (10/25/2012) [-]
Another problem with the analogy is that he's taking their ice cream which offers them no benefit.
We might get taxes taken from us, but those taxes pay for our education, healthcare, roads, etc.
