bigsteve3OOO: Um he lost and is no longer running.  Should we discuss Mondale?  Oh yeah if we focus on someone not currently running the country we dont have to look at a failed presidency.


You sound like a sore loser.

jjorsett: Our long national nightmare is over; Mitt Romney finally has his car elevator

Our long national nightmare of envious kvetchers making it their business what somebody else does with their own money continues.


I don't think people here are as covetous of a car lift as you think. In other words, lighten up Francis.

The people who tell him what to think want him to conflate the idea that the very wealthy should pay a higher tax rate with being envious of the very wealth and hating them. So now that his programming is complete he comes and vomits that idea all over fark.com.

marcand: How did this guy NOT connect with the American voter?


Best part: Now that Mary Burke has announced she's running for Gov of WI next year I'm already hearing the right-wing talking points.  They're all pretty much variations of "Out of touch millionaire executive" because she was an executive with Trek Bicycle Corporation.  So now apparently having a couple million dollars and executive experience is a bad thing to the same people that are still gnashing teeth about Mitt Romney not becoming POTUS.

Actually, the best part is the WI GOP has purchased http://www.maryburke.com/.  Complete with quotes that don't have a name attached, some shiat about a trip she took to Argentina (apparently having money to travel is a bad thing, as is seeing how other nations live), and something about her "taking WI backwards" when I've been hearing nothing but "We need to take this nation back to the way it was" for years.

F/cking laughable.

Albino Squid: I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score weeks ago, a great American, in whose domestic shadow we stand today, signed an application to the zoning committee of San Diego. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of wealthy people who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their parking at street level.

But one hundred weeks later, the rich man still is not free. One hundred weeks later, the life of the rich man is still sadly crippled by the manacles of city planning and the chains of bylaws. One hundred days later, the rich man lives on a lonely island of one-story garages in the midst of a vast ocean of multi-story buildings. One hundred weeks later, the rich still languishes in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile on his many spacious acres. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we've come to our nation's capital to cash a check, and a large one at that. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir, though some of us had inheritances of much greater values. This note was a promise that all men, yes, rich men as well as merely well-to-do men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Multi-Story Parking." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of wealth are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the wealthy people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds", words that we had to have explained by our butler.

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us the ability to place cars at heights that gravity strains to constrain.

[...]

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up on hydraulic lifts and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, but only some can afford vehicular elevation, and that's fine."

I have a dream that one day on the green hills of La Jolla, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together after a long day of building my goddamned car elevator.

I have a dream that one day even the state of California, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be able to marvel at the fact that I can walk from my Bentley straight into my bedroom.

I have a dream that my five sons will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the silliness of their names but by the technological advancement of their driveway!

I have a dream today!


Best post ever!
Bravo!

He CAN'T own the beach. Everything below the mean high tide line in CA is public property by law.

I'm not the one picking this fight. The commenters here don't want a car lift themselves, they just hate it that somebody else has the means to buy something that they themselves don't need, want, or approve of. In other words, what business is it of some Cheeto-encrusted basement dweller that Mitt Romney buys something they personally don't want and/or can't afford? The phrase dog-in-the-manger comes to mind.

I'm all in favor of this, as it would deprive the state of all that "millionaire tax" money. He could avoid a tax rate of 13.5% by moving to Florida and flipping CA the bird, and I think he should do exactly that.
