    Stephen King: Tax Me, for F@%&

    I agree. Of course. Everybody knows that's why people bring links and share stories, but then if you don't say anything there will be an attack. So. I'm saying something.

    This is the second 'author saying something stupid' thread you've started. It's also good to note that Stephen King is showing why the limousine liberals are bloody hypocrites with their money.

    Stephen King is right on.

    The Republican party of today continues to assume the moral high ground on selfishness.

    Riiiiiight...49 novels under his belt, hes received Bram Stoker Awards, World Fantasy Awards, British Fantasy Society Awards, his novella The Way Station was a Nebula Award novelette nominee, and in 2003, the National Book Foundation awarded him the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He has also received awards for his contribution to literature for his whole career, such as the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement (2004), the Canadian Booksellers Association Lifetime Achievement Award (2007) and the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America (2007).


    But he's a moron.

    Of course he is not a moron. He is an expert in creative writing, horror novel writing, novel promotion, etc.

    He certainly is no expert in tax policy, rather he is a moron in it.

    It's yet another silly argument from authority, thus means close to nothing, except what a horror writer believes about his taxes.

    Maybe next we'll hear what a chef thinks, too. :eusa_whistle:

    History is full of famous writers who turned out to be complete morons when it turned to politics or economics.
