3. And here is the pitifully silly argument against taxing capital gains at the same rate as earnings

The notion is that if you tax capital gains at the same rate as earnings that it will have the effect of decreasing investment. Of course those same tax rates do not stop people from looking for high-paying jobs. So, if the tax rates on earnings are no detriment to a desire for gainful employment it is difficult to understand how they could hinder investment.
