Cute, except those weren't built by slaves. They were built by taxes. Somehow "Taxes get shit done" doesn't have the same ring.

I'm gonna have to call BS on that one Onyma. Slavery or working to pay off your taxes to ones in power is slavery anyway I look at it.

Why does the U.S. Federal gov get 25% of all working americans income? Beats the fuck outta me... Why does the U.S. keep spending Citizens tax money on others that don't work for a living and have not earned it. It's a never ending cycle.

Oooh, I can really piss people off with this topic, where to begin!
Most nations are built on slavery of some kind, it's the cheapest way to increase productivity in a commercial world. Ever since money was invented there has been slavery. The pyramids are still a bit of a mystery however, I think the kings (and one queen) were just mean bastards!
Let's take the USA for example.
Americans should acknowledge their save loving past but move on and think of the future, try voting for once!

and i think we ought to bring it back. 33 percent of blacks are in, have been, will be in jail/prison. we should take these losers and put them in the fields picking berries so we can kick out the beaners. at least the niggers are, embarrassingly, U.S. citizens. though i would bet those 33 percenters could not pass the citizenship test or any intellectual test foe dat matta.

actually the Egyptian pyramids being built by slaves is highly argued and confused topic. the truth is noone knows for sure if they were slaves.

i think they were a class of people created by the pharaohs as masons. each man was a highly skilled individual; in different phases of construction. there's the masons themselves who quarried the massive blocks, then there's the architects who oversaw the placement of the stones. there are the stone carving artists who decorated the walls etc. and there are the people who actually moved the blocks. these i believe were not slaves but willing class of workers/subjects/worshipers and genuinely believed that their work was for the pharaohs passage into immortality thus gaining them favor in the eyes of the future eternal god.

There isn't much evidence of an Egyptian military police, to keep that many slaves in line. However some jobs on the building site would have certainly been done by slaves. I like to believe that they were massive civil works, providing employment to the lower classes. Until the Jews came along an ruined it all...

They were slaves kept for work and hosts. Those pyramids were built to land their space crafts. The gods of that time were alien symbiotes living in human hosts.

Yeah! Jgoins is right! then will smith and tommy lee jones and a pug dog kicked thier busted ass out of town cause the preditor and alien wanted to play hunter with sigourney weaver. Then the romulans came but they wanted to protect us from the imperial storm troopers but found there were no match to yoda and his magical NBA team call the force. the real tragety came when they found out the all the alien abductions of cattle was to build a stronger cream cheese, because the last moon they built rotted and was eaten by dr. who and danger mouse from the BBC. true story!

Do you think that if income tax was abolished you would earn 25% more? Uh, you would probably get less in real terms as all of those `free` services would have to be billed to you, then privatised, then billed at higher cost. I pay over 30% in tax where I live, but then I live in a country frequently rated in the top 3 best countries to live in, rated by those studies I keep reading about in the news (not the news from here I might add).

Look at it this way, your earnings are linked to the tax you pay, higher taxes equals greater cost of goods and services, so you have to be paid more to afford a basic standard of living, so a rise in taxes will equal a rise in earnings (but in real terms if they each increase by the same percentage then nothing will change). And anyway, I think you probably don`t pay any tax on income at all, the company you work for does.
