Just had the best online support experience with backcountry.com, where the rep price matched a competitor for me. Awesome.

Wherein I propose a dumb tax plan, just like all the presidential candidates:

1. I propose that we set the corporate income tax rate at 15%. No tax breaks should be granted to corporations.
2. I propose that we tax estates at a rate of 10%.
3. I propose that we tax realized capital gains as normal income, either corporate or personal.
4. I propose that we tax dividend and interest income as normal income, either corporate or personal.
5. I propose that we set the personal income tax rate as a simple graduated scale:
5a. a 15% rate for the first $250,000 of income.
5c. a 20% rate for income over the first $250,000.

I estimate that under this tax plan, Romney would pay slightly more than 15% in taxes. I estimate that under this tax plan, most Americans would pay a lower percentage than Romney in taxes.

Nice plan, where do I sign up? The poloticians will never go for it. Makes it so that cannot use the tax plan to benefit supporters and social engineering.

It looks like they've made it pretty easy to integrate.

This story reminds me of a passage in Vernor Vinge's A Deepness in the Sky, where a character learns software archaeology on the spaceship that carries him on an interstellar voyage.
Institutional memory and reverse smuggling. Institutional memory comes in two forms: people and documentation. People remember how things work and why. Sometimes they write it down and store that info...

Translations from this MOSAID video:

"Each renewal secured terms and conditions equal to or better than the previous licensing round."
--We fleeced these guys.

"Patents are MOSAID's primary asset."
"We signaled our resolve to protect our intellectual property.... by intensifying our litigation activity."
--We are patent trolls.

"We've initiated patent infringement activities against ... Atheros, Marvel, Intel, Ralink, ... Nvidia, Freescale, Interphase, ... Elpedia Memory, Buffalo, ActionTech, and Cisco."
--And we're going after everybody.

I've thought about this a little more, and I think that the solution is to bring back the draft:

Taxation, simplified:

1. The government provides these services, Z, which cost $Y, and therefore the tax rate should be X%.
2. The government should have a tax rate of X%, which generates $Y, and can therefore provide these services, Z.

If you think about taxes from the viewpoint of option (2), what should X be? In other words, if you could pick a percentage of your total income to pay in taxes, what would that percentage be, and why?
