I know this is going to sounds socialist, but there is room for improvement. About 15 years ago, I saw the salary for the CEO of Coca-Cola. He made about 116 Million in salary, and another 119 Million in stock options. So in one year, one person grossed almost a quarter of a BILLION dollars....for selling sugared water. To me that is obscene. I can't see any reason someone should make THAT kind of money, when the lowest guys on the totem poll struggle to make it paycheck to paycheck.
Guess what. If you taxed him at 75%....he's still making 58 million and change. I don't see the logic in the super rich crying about more taxes when most of them have surpluses larger than small nations.
The flip side of that is the government is a wasteful overloaded garbage-fest. Cleaning that up would reduce the need to collect such taxes.

Give me a better example then? Nomadic specifically called out Zuckerberg as a rugged individual. How about Steve Jobs?

I'll give Jobs and Wozniak more credit than I would Zuckerberg. At least they started using their own resources and business set-up in a garage. And, as far as I know, they didn't require all those engineers until they needed to grow, but by then they were already heading down the road to success. Zuckerberg, on the other hand was a parasite in my view, at least in the way he was portrayed in the movie about his "invention." He used everybody around him to get his start, and his idea as I said in the previous post was ripped off from the two brothers. I'm not taking away anything from his total accomplishments, but I feel that the way he did it was on the sleezy side, not through rugged individualism. Obviously we have a difference of opinion on that, like almost everything else.
