Image of the Day: Paying Their "Fair Share?"

We recently highlighted the preposterousness of Joe Biden's ceaseless talking point that wealthier Americans don't pay their "fair share" of taxes, as well as the insanity of resting his tax and budgetary policy on that false claim.  In reality, wealthier Americans' share of income taxes paid dwarfs their share of income earned, and the Tax Foundation offers a helpful comparison graph illustrating our point perfectly:

A New Jersey man has filed a lawsuit against Continental Airlines because of its "cashless cabin" policy.

Michael W. Rosen of Ridgewood, N.J., claims he was improperly deprived last year of in-flight entertainment and cocktails on a 10-hour flight from Hawaii to Newark when he didn't have a credit or debit card with him and the carrier refused to take cash. Rosen accuses Continental of breach of contract, false advertising, violation of the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act and "unlawful discrimination against individuals who do not physically possess a debit or credit card." He seeks an unspecified amount in compensatory damages, punitive damages and damages for mental anguish and emotional distress and indicated he may seek class-action status.

"His perception is that it's a consumer rights issue for people who are subject to airplane regulations and airplane rules," Rosen's lawyer Nathan Kittner said. "He had a credit card in his luggage but his luggage was checked."

The airline maintains that its in-flight service operated "within the guidelines provided by federal law regulating rates, routes and services," and that "there is no law mandating that a private business must accept currency."

FDIC insurance currently insures bank deposits up to $250,000. Do you believe Congress should raise the amount, eliminate the cap altogether and insure all deposits, or keep the amount insured at the current level?
