    Time to quit cowering from the term and just properly identify these kooks as the communists that they are.

    If that happens it would be time for the billionaires to tell this communist country to fuck itself.

    The guy is pulling chains to get attention, thus better ratings. I hope he's joking, because if he is serious, that would be pretty sad.

    I've listened to Hartmann on several occasions....This comment would be totally in line with him being "serious".

    There's a litany of reasons that AirheadAmerica shit the bed, and supercilious, demagogic little hater clowns like Hatmann and Randi Rhodes are at the top of the list.

    I started my rant about billionaires earlier, at the beginning of the hour, let me just finish it really quickly. I think we should have a wealth tax in the United States and I think all wealth over $1 billion should be taxed at the 100 percent rate. If you can't make it on a thousand million dollars, a billion dollars is a million dollars a thousand times, if you can't make it on a billion dollars, well, there is no therefore. There's nobody who can't make it on a billion dollars. So, any wealth over a billion dollars, a hundred percent of it goes to help those of us who have less. You can call it redistribution of wealth, that's fine, I am perfectly comfortable with that language. I think we should outlaw billionaires.​
    The modern liberal is engaged in in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for covetousness.


    Hey, Hartmann: You want money? Get off your ass and get to work. Sell a product people actually want to pay for. You know, like your leftist horseshit isn't.

    Calling for someone's wealth to be taken away and given to you is an admission that you're worthless and weak.

    Not a bad idea.

    Getting rid of the Aristocrat class would be a breath of fresh air.
