Someone figuring out the whole "working as intended" moniker?

Oh oh, people are paying too much attention to this NSA bullshiat, toss around some babies murdered in an abortion clinic somewhere to get the proles at each other!

The good news is they pay taxes so the rest don't have to.

The root problem with America is that the wrong people are dying.  if the CEO's, Bankers, CONgressmen, gated community folks, etc were getting plugged, you'd see some real change in america.


no one notices some drug dealer bum on the street getting plugged.


relax, NSA.  i'm not advocating such things.   wink.   you're so jittery these days.

demaL-demaL-yeH: Debeo Summa Credo: coyo: The_Man_On_The_Phone: Serious question:
If the 1% gets taxed out of being the 1%, won't the economy take a dive?
Aren't they holding this place together, so to speak?

Serious answer : they take disproportionately more money out of the economy than they put in. So no, they are tearing the place apart.

How do they take "disproportionately" more money? They earn what they earn, like everyone else.

Oh, look, it's the moronic argument that gambling on Wall Street is earningmoney, building things for people to buy, harvesting food and raw materials by the sweat of the brow, or providing services that have any impact on communities anywhere outside gated enclaves. They build nothing. They create nothing. They contribute nothing of any value to society. They pay lower tax rates. And they suck money out of the economy that could go toward building things, harvesting food and raw materials, or providing services that improve people's lives.

Come back when the Walton heirs do anything useful to anybody but the Walton heirs. (No farking tax dodges allowed.)


Errr, I waited on the Walton Family and their foundation at a private event two weeks ago, and they did tip me (nothing on top of the autograt, natch) so technically they personally contribute to my income

Sure they do...almost as much as Santa Claus and the Tooth fairy combined.
