Paul’s Daily Three for September 13, 2018

Are taxes on the rich too high, too low, or just about right?

Should lovers tell each other everything, or is it ok to keep some secrets?

What, if anything, would get you to participate in a mass protest march?

  1. Are taxes on the rich too high, too low, or just about right?

    I guess that depends on what is considered the lowest level to be considered rich.

    Should lovers tell each other everything, or is it ok to keep some secrets?

    Depends on whether they are in love or simply in lust.

    What, if anything, would get you to participate in a mass protest march?

    Nothing, mass anything is always a recipe for disaster. It would be akin to being in a motorcycle gang, or part of the Islamic and Catholic gangs.

      1. Good question, But you’re asking a non-economist to answer economic questions. I may be arrogant, but I’m not that arrogant. 😀 The best I could do is google up what people who study the problem say about it. Last time I looked, though, there wasn’t precise agreement about these things, although there seemed to be some kind of rough, ballpark consensus, if I recall now.

  2. Are taxes on the rich too high, too low, or just about right? ~I have no complaints about the rate of my own taxes.

    Should lovers tell each other everything, or is it ok to keep some secrets? ~I don’t think everything is necessary, but I do think that if you’re actively hiding something from him, you need to make a point to broach that topic, because it’s a source of potential trouble.
    Random, but once I read that financial infidelity (i.e. a secret bank account) was just as devastating to a marriage as sexual infidelity.

    What, if anything, would get you to participate in a mass protest march? ~Eh… I guess if my friends really wanted me to… I’m anything but passionate about politics.

  3. I know your game. The only people who will say that the taxes of the rich are too high are the stinking rich. It’s a great way to find our next victim. I’m pulling my stocking over my head. Who are we burgling tonight?

    I wouldn’t tell ANYONE about the time I wet my pants on the school bus, let alone a lover… damn! Me and my big mouth.

    I used to go on a lot of protest marches. If I hadn’t built up an aversion to travelling I’d participate in a mass protest against anything I felt strongly about. Protests rarely (if ever) solve the problem, but it gave me a buzz to march with so many like-minded people.
