resolution would be best to all the great content providers that being robbed left and right the government has to stop this robbery and but that's not Google doing the robbery if this -- nineteen certify would you go were arrested yellow pages for a listing.
Businesses were in correct.
You you've got to that you've got to crackdown on the pirates the problem -- you can get on the Internet anonymously without being traced and that's what has to be addressed to go to way to Trace every website.
And everybody if you will go on message boards and say anything.
In -- without Wikipedia today.
People have nowhere to go on post false information about other people the -- it's a terrible plan.
But that's the real key is -- you can put an untraceable website but that's what needs to be addressed.
Okay fair enough -- thanks so much Marco wanted to get your opinion on this 15%.
That's the number with concentrating on America's got it appears to be the effective tax -- that Mitt Romney paid.
Because he gets his money out of these investments 15%.
Long term capital gains tax rate your responses.
What is the problem is Robbie is so disciplines and at least two disability doesn't open his mouth and say something here which is.
He pays the same tax rate everybody else -- Which is 35% you know he made about 400000 speaking fees and I'm sure he paid 40% of that that was his income -- investment income.
He pays the same rate everybody pays 15% but it but to -- at.
Rich person and I denied that -- -- took the man in the street but the average person.
Tax rate seems extremely low for a very wealthy guy but he doesn't explain this if you know fireman or policeman you've got a pension when you -- -- retirement account.
Those are investments you get taxed at 15%.
What -- the Democrats talking about raising capital gains.
But you know what that would do to senior citizens people -- retired all over the country.
Yeah I gotta raise one other issue it calls coming to this because.
Mitt Romney said that told about his speaking engagements you make 347000.
Dollars last year from speaking any tax at the full -- -- the -- of the full right.
You know what he said about that 347000.
You said that's not very much.
A politician should not be saying 347000.
-- from -- is not very much don't say that it's a -- -- well he's got a little George H.
Bush country club kind of guy you're kind of approach but.
Maybe you wanna go back to that old fashioned kind of patrician politician that Roosevelt -- of carry.
And a lot of people like that sort of stuff Monday night it's not gonna play well that that and I know you wanna take that one back but I think what he should talk instead of -- percentages when he talks about what he pays.
He's -- talk about the actual number of people though I paid.
X amount of millions of dollars in taxes.
Yeah that might get a few people who say OK that's that sounds better to me get in -- are talking percentages I think thirty fibers and you can be obtained.
That -- employer paid 35 right adept but the but the overall arching point to me is that you know the other White House automatically sent.
Communique last night saying them -- -- pay its fair share.
Yeah people's understand by the way according to the Tax Foundation 75% of Americans pay less than 15% yet yet -- -- folks voted in line when Mitt Romney.
He would have the biggest margin of history -- -- this -- for the white and cut all.
Appointed to senior citizens and working people -- pension funds that's the 50% saluted the Democrats -- talking about going after that and raising your attacks on your retirement your pension.

In investment income income and us.
The effective tax rate they pay just 24%.
To a default so can the average for all to all those people who pay federal income tax the average tax rate is 17%.
At 42% of people who -- paid no federal income tax apple.

Exactly the richer over -- right now believe or not they're paying way more than their fair share we have probably.
Too much revenue coming in the federal government right now we're on a revenue problem we have a spending problem you know running for office -- -- -- -- and -- Warren Buffett who says yes I -- text you know that this guy has been suing the RS for the last couple years.
Saying he's overtaxed it's in his annual report you spent a fortune on this and -- -- the reason pays a low of 50% is he doesn't take any real low salary.
But in the year 2010.
Wealth went up by eleven billion dollars that was on tax and time it just -- wealth went -- -- tax.
