(Washington Post)   Rich people are not the reason poor people are poor, so let's stop victimizing the rich through draconian taxes and inflammatory rhetoric and work on real solutions for income inequality, like giving the top 1 percent a tax cut   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 12

For starters, the poor are not poor because the rich are rich. The two conditions are generally unrelated.

for starters, cat shiat smells great.

for starters, McDonald's makes quality food

for starters, the earth is flat and 6000 years old

for starters, this guy's mustache is cool

I personally think taxes are too high across the board.  Our debt problem is the result of out of control spending, not a lack of funds.

However, I damn well better get a tax cut before those 1% bastards.  As a single guy making just shy of six figures, I'm being raped by the tax man.

Also, increasing the income tax on the rich won't bother them.  Very little of their money comes from "income".  If you want to get their attention, threaten to increase the capital gains tax.

Bloody William: . But you're not helping. Why is that, Leon?


What color is this tortoise?  because a red tortoise killed my father.   The sucker fell off a 50 story building and right on his head.  To heck with all red tortoises.

Between the two of us, there is a table with 50 burgers on it. Through various means, the analogy is made increasingly literal and picked apart pedantically to the point that the original poster of the analogy is probably regretting not putting in several more details to make the situation reflect reality more closely. The intent of the analogy is lost as the literal interpretation of the situation as posited is picked apart separate from the issue the analogy is attempting to describe. The tortoise lays on its back, its belly baking in the hot sun, beating its legs trying to turn itself over, but it can't. Not without your help. But you're not helping. Why is that, Leon?

You know I'm really thinking I should get two stamps one of them should say "Fark the poor!" and the other "Eat the rich!". Then I should stamp $100 dollar bills with the "Fark the poor!" slogan and $1, $5, $10, and $20 with "Eat the rich!"

mayIFark: Just a tax cut for the top 1%? Let's follow the recent suggestions and give them all a yellow star too.


Not just yellow stars, but we must tattoo their bellies with yellow stars, so they can be star bellied snatches.

Perhaps if the rich stopped demonizing the less fortunate by calling them lazy, mooching welfare queens buying lobster with their food stamps who should probably work another job if you can't feed your family oh and if you just got married all your problems would go away plus you've already got a refrigerator and anyway you could have it worse somewhere else, all while loudly proclaiming their own righteousness as "job creators" and fighting tooth and nail against or actively trying to dismantle programs that help people, poor people might stop punching back.
