    Phil won both the Scottish Open and the British Open over the last 2 weekends and earned 2 million-after all taxes-Scotland, GB, Cally and US he gets to keep 41%- and you libs are still whining about how the rich do not pay their fair share

    Just curious, but where did you pull 41% from?

    But while we're on the subject of sports taxes, I read this the other day:

    Now, that is unfair.

    No one should ever have to pay more than 15% of their hard earned pay.

    What's the % for not so hard earned pay? Or undeserved pay? :joecool:

    Simple. We need a govt agency to decide what percentage of each individual's income was earned the hard way vs the easy way.

    Any legitimate income is considered hard earned pay.

    It's funny how those on those thread play their semantic games to hide their money- grabbing socialist ways.
