    Paul Hogarth: Tax the Rich? Tax the Millionaires!




    Do that shit, do that shit, do that shit, teah do that shit, lol.

    No seriously, rightwingers can't defend millionaires against this when the majority of Americans, especially the middle class, are proportionally bearing a bigger brunt.

    Yep, punish success. Increase the size and scope of government with nary an idea in sight to get spending under control.

    Love these recycled old, demonstrably failed policies.

    Millionaires grow with the stock market.

    Last year the number of millionaire households in the US increased by 600,000.

    Also in 2010 the US added 5,000,000 Americans to the national food stamp program.

    With the stock market soaring over 100 percent from March 2009 lows, the richest 1% of the US population now controls 42% of all financial wealth.

    Don't expect to hear/read these numbers in the corporate press.

    The financial scam of...

    With great wealth comes great responsibility.

    Except here in America of late.

    Typical liberal bullshit.
    You got it, I don't. I want it. You can't have it.
    Blah blah blah.

    Everywhere is
    Freaks and hairies
    Dykes and fairies
    Tell me where is sanity
    Tax the rich
    Feed the poor
    Till there are no
    Rich no more
    I'd love to change the world
    But I don't know what to do
    So I'll leave it up to you
    Population
    Keeps on breeding
    Nation bleeding
    Still more feeding, economy
    Life is funny
    Skies are sunny
    Bees make honey
    Who needs money, monopoly
    I'd love to change the world
    But I don't know what to do
    So I'll leave it up to you
    World pollution
    There's no solution
    Institution
    Electrocution
    Just black or white
    Rich or poor
    Them and us
    Stop the war
    I'd love to change the world
    But I don't know what to do
    So I'll leave it up to you

    A tangential example of right-wing hypocrisy

    They agree that...

    Banning same sex marriage is equal treatment because the law is applied equally to all people.

    They disagree that...

    Progressive taxation is equal treatment because it is applied equally to all people.


    Carry on :thup:

    The funny and ironic part is, they had from 2007-2010 absolute power to do whatever they wanted, and didn't do jack squat.

    Super Majority Democrat led Congress, with two years of a Democrat President also, and yet ALL of the problems still exist, just greatly magnified! And NO complaints about that at all, from the flail-0's of the world and their ilk! :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:
