The guys on the AK side put me up to this. We want our AK logo back whenever one clicks on the "AK community" forum button. Here's my reasoning: The AR-15 is just as socialist as the AK-47, so I might as well look at and use the version that works the best in adverse conditions.

How can both be socialist? Well yes, I know the Soviets taxed people 90-95% in proportion of what they earned. What about America today? Let's run a sample calculation.

Assuming no inflation or inflation adjusted with interest from money sitting in the bank, let's say I make $250,000 per year, which is possible considering I'm studying to be a doctor.

Net = 30*(250,000) = 7.5 million

Problem is, I pay 40% taxes for income, state and local around St. Louis.

Gross = 7.5 million - (7.5 million)*0.40 = 4.5 million left

Problem is folks, I die at some point, and although you can't take it with you, it's nice knowing your children can, which really is the whole f#$king point of working to begin with: create a dynasty!

Enter the inheritance tax (55%):

Final Amount Left = Gross - 0.55*Gross = 2.025 million.

So let's see here:

Real Taxation Rate = ((7.5 - 2.025)/7.5)*100 = 73%!!!!!!!!!!

So that's how much better than the Soviet Union?

95/73 = 1.30137 times better or rather 30% better.

I rest my case. We need our AK logo back.

See the logo in the left upper corner? It's an M4 Carbine. The logo on the AK side of the site was an AK. It is now the same M4 Carbine.

WE WANT OUR AK BACK



Well, how about it Goatboy!

I think Goatboy said it was one of things he didn't get to during the GREAT UPGRADE OF 2002 and he'd handle it when he finds the time. I think that's reasonable enough.
