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:

Bear Slapped Print
Thursday, December 02 2010

A California man sued a Montana Guide Service after he was "slapped by a bear."
 
Virgil Massey of Barstow, Calif., sued the Church Universal and Triumphant and Montana Guide Service in 6th District Court.  Massey claims that while on a 2007 hunting trip on the religious group's land, a guide left him on a ridge top to watch for elk while the guide accompanied a second hunter to a deer he had killed about 400 yards away.  On his way back to Massey, the guide heard a gunshot, then found Massey on the ground and injured.  Massey told him he had been "slapped by a bear."
 
In court documents, Massey alleges the outfitter did not give him proper training on how to deal with bears or provide him with pepper spray or a handgun for protection. Massey is suing for past and future medical expenses as well as other damages.
 
According to news reports, it does not appear the State of Montana requires licensed Montana guides and outfitters to have any special training about bear encounters or how to use firearms for self-defense against bears.

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?
