Re: Extended Unemployment a Civil Right?
Well... the question is; what has the state been doing in terms of legislation to conditions conducive for businesses to hire more people?
If a government can't see to it that its people prosper, or provide for its people when it fails to do that, then why is the government even there?
North Carolina is such an interesting state - by raising sales tax, they're putting the burden of the tax on the poor. If the CEO of BofA and I each buy a Coke, I'm losing a higher percentage of my income to sales tax than that CEO is.
They don't have the balls to raise actual income tax, do they?
Especially when so many big banks - the "too big to fail" banks - are headquartered in North Carolina. They're in so much debt, and those cowards won't go after the big businesses. They go after the poor and unemployed.
