1. Ed is a national treasure! I'm working my way through all the Mary Tyler Moore Show seasons.

I'm up to the end of season four where it really starts to get good. Betty White as Sue Ann Nivens comes on about 2/3 of the way through that season. She is so viscious!

6. They devised a plan, they called it "Look over there".

Nice animation. Tax evasion explained on about the 3rd grade level so anyone, even teabags can understand it.

11. I'm not convinced.

I'm starting to think that $250,000 is too low, and it should be $500,000. There are Dual income families that bring in $250,000 but they are upper middle class. Not "rich". Moreover, somehow, Mitt Romney paid 15% on his taxes, not 35%. Or 39%. So I'm concerned that we are going about this the wrong way. We need to put caps on things like long term and short term capital gains taxes and dividend taxes, so that they are taxed fairly above $250,000. In fact, we need to look at all the ways in which Mitt Romney ended up paying 15% instead of 30%+ percent, and we need to address those things.

At any rate, I'm concerned that we're going about this the wrong way.
