Christie is an overrated, bloviating gasbag who relies on bullying to compensate for a lack of intellect.

There. I criticized him without making a comment about his weight.

It's hard to argue with Buffett's logic, so "shut up" is the best Christie can do.

Who do you side with in the debate?
Warren Buffett
Gov. Chris Christie


I wasn't aware that this is a "debate."

Warren: Our deficit and debt is out of control, and we need to help fix that by increasing taxes on rich people like me.

Christie: Oh, just shut up. Just send in an extra check to the government if you want to give them more money.

Warren: That's not going to do anything to fix the problem. And no, I'm not going to shut up.

Its a debate in the sense that one side is identifying a problem between our revenue intake and our spending and suggesting a solution, while the other side repeats a nonsensical catchphrase "We don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem!" ad infinitum; presumably in the hope that like a mantra, repeating it often enough will somehow turn it into a greater truth.

"He should just write a check and shut up," the governor told CNN's Piers Morgan. "If he wants to give the government more money, he's got the ability to write a check."

He's done that already. He's also said he'll match any check a republican (congressman?) sends in to the IRS. So for, only one of them has taken him up on the offer.

Your move, fatass.

Is anyone shocked that the person on the 'liberal' side of the position was far more eloquent and nuanced than the ham-handed reaction of the person on the conservative side?

I didn't think so.

The just-send-a-check-people believe that government is a charitable cause:

1) No one should have to write a check if he doesn't want to
2) If one does write a check, one should get some direct government benefit in the form of lowered taxes

In short, the just-send-a-check-people really aren't Americans. America is something they look down upon, just as the people at a black-tie function look down on what ever group they're going to drop a pittance on - that is if there's any money left after the bills for the caviar, Cristal, and truffled mousse pâté come in.

I'm just happy you managed to work a ham reference into that. Christie is a buffoon, a fool unable to see that he is, in fact, a fool, and so continues to bluster along as though he's rolling 10 deep.
 
2012-02-29 09:32:39 PM
About 2 weeks ago there was a radio guy who was at a Starbucks when Christie and his personal assistant came in. Tweeted the whole hour or so that the governor was there. The play-by-play was amazing.

Has anyone figured out who is forcing Mr. Buffett to treat his income as capital gains instead of wages? I understand the current tax code allows him to do so, but does the tax code force him to file in this manner?

Now if he and others wish to argue we need to change the tax code to make sure Wall Streeters cannot treat income as capital gains, I would be in full support of this effort.

On a seperate note, and I honestly do not know the answer to this question, but if there is someone up on tax law.....

As part of the health care reform, there was a tax on those who make over $250,000, given that Mr. Buffett and others on Wall Street "don't pay income taxes" but pay "capital gains tax;" would Mr. Buffett pay the health care tax if all of his income is treated as "capital gains?"

You know, that's not much different than the "write a check" argument. I don't know what would happen if he opted to pay taxes as if his long-term capital gains were taxed as income, but I do know that suggesting that he do that sort of concedes that he's right about us not having enough money to pay for the government we want, while at the same time is the equivalent of shrugging and saying, "Eh, fark it."

none of this speaks to the question of whether he is right. He is correct. That said, there is nothing stopping him from paying more in taxes and he should lead by example.

Derailment.

Tax policy only works correctly when we all chip in, and in fair proportion. Saying "lol write a check to the IRS if you care so much" ignores the whole point.
