I wish i had a dime for every hypocrite working at the margins of politics

Yes, but she is very taxing, even for her patrons.

So? I'm pretty sure shops that sell T-shirts with slogans on them don't necessarily agree with every slogan they sell.

  AOC does not own this company. Unlike Trump whos companies have similar fines and judgments.

As someone who has to pay the HOA fees on my deceased dad's house while it's still in probate and I can't sell it yet, I'm not getting a kick...although I'd like to, up this broad's ass.

I once bought a t-shirt that said, "Just Do It" But I went home and took a nap, instead. I'm a bad man.

so, the NY Post, a sloppy, right-leaning, trump-humping, click-baiting tabloid says this designer owes a relatively small amount of taxes?

$2500 here, $15K there, $100K (from 6 combined sources) here.... and this makes her THE ULTIMATE HYPOCRITE?

no. that dress was a "get people talking" intentional act (call it trolling, if you like) referring to people and corporations worth 100s of millions and multiple billions.

and no NY Post, "oh shiat, she bought a cali house worth 1.6 million (in a part of cali where that's not very much)!" is not the breathless reveal you think it is. bad NY Post, bad. now give me your phone, and go clean your room!

luna1580: relatively small amount of taxes?


$100K isn't a small amount of taxes, but what's more egregious is that she took out payroll taxes from her employees and then just didn't pay them to the government. So unlike working under the table, she took the money that could have gone to employees and kept it. That's the kind of thing Trump would do.

But you keep doing you, defender of the corrupt.
 
2021-09-19 1:45:03 PM  
Oh good so obviously this means both sided are bad and AOC is hitler

Thank you NY Post

Alright, put her in jail or whatever justice needs to be served, then continue towards taxing the rich. Stop giving conservatives any room with these bullshiat maneuvers. Am I supposed to feel some sort of shame that she is an awful person and that counteracts the need to tax the rich. fark off.

Trump is the dress designer?

Now right wingers suddenly care about fashion?  And business owners paying taxes?  And treating employees well?

Excuse me while I laugh uncontrollable laughter.
 
2021-09-19 4:55:39 PM  
Yes, Rupert Murdoch's New York Compost. That means that any idea of ever taxing the rich shall now and forevermore be banished from any further discussion.

You are very intelligent.

Lets be honest here, none of you have ever bought anything one off from a designer. Yeah, you might have a t shirt with a fancy slogan that you stuck it to the man by not following, but it wasn't a thing custom made just for your ideology on it.

Wee bit of difference. Also, the correct answer to this question is "oh, she's a bag of dirt too. Oh well, fark em all." not "SHE IS EXEMPT FROM THE RULES I HOLD OTHERS TO!!!1!" She in this case being the designer. I doubt AOC had this knowledge going into the situation.

Sssshhh!!!  She's a friend of AOC, and this is fark.com.  Totally forgivable.

That's pretty funny.

I mean... NYP is trying to make this into some sort of slam against AOC, which doesn't really work, so the core thrust of TFA is nonsensical gibberish of no real value.  I have not fully vetted every farking cashier that's checked me out at the supermarket and would have no idea if they were secretly a murderer or whatever, and if it turned out they were I'd not feel in any way responsible for their murderin' nor would anyone blame me for it just because I was their customer once when I needed to buy some farking milk.

Still amusing, though.  farking capitalist shiatheads being willing to produce anticapitalist stuff is always a weird mix of slightly uncomfortable and knee-slappingly hilarious.

Like, I'll fully cede that the dressmaker is a dipshiat who should be held to account for what they owe and for their employment practices etc... but it's more in the 'amusing' range than the 'outrage' range at this petty level of dickery and it's not like it has anything to do with the random politician that commissioned a dress from them.
 
2021-09-19 4:58:46 PM  
This LLLIBERAL politician is a hypocrite for [checks notes] ah... says here she didn't background check a fashion designer she purchased a dress off of.

Well that's it let's call it a day, Trump is god-emperor for life.
 
2021-09-19 4:58:57 PM  
If course. Which is why we were all saying what a monumentally stupid achievement it was to go hobknob with people paying $30k a ticket all for an evening of attention whoring by a certain member of Congress.

The entire thing smacks of lunacy and hypocritical nonsense.

Wear a "tax the rich" gown while serving soup at a local soup kitchen, not AWing yourself while sucking down Cristal and Dom Perignon.

It's almost as if "justice" and "fairness" are meaningless buzzwords that can be sold to the highest bidder.
 
2021-09-19 5:00:00 PM  
Stunts like this need to be handled strategically, because they can backfire like this and the message gets lost. I am all for holding people to standard if they're going to be the face of a movement, but I for damn sure am not going to sit quietly and pretend republicans have the tiniest leg to stand on when it comes to pointing out hypocrisy.

I love AOC, and these kinds of trolly stunts are right in her wheelhouse, but when it comes to these kinds of parties targeted to assholes with too much money, I prefer to take the Bernie Sanders route and just don't participate at all.
 
2021-09-19 5:00:34 PM  
I bought a plain t shirt at Walmart, and another one at Amazon once.  I'm a horrible human being who is responsible for every outrage those two companies have every committed.
 
2021-09-19 5:00:46 PM  
Well I guess the message is pointless then, right subby? I mean we can just discount pretty much anything someone says if they're bad?

So then Ben Franklin had america wrong? Jefferson was evil?

But ya know, that Mussolini guy didn't really say much. Just made the trains run on time. So he's cool?

The business owner is a dick and we should shun that. But let's not miss the message here. Rich people got that way by either breaking the backs of the working class, or inheriting a gross amount of money that they did nothing to create. And they stay rich by exploiting a system that is set up in their favor, all while demanding incentives to move their business in to a region.

The rich don't create jobs. The rich only exist to build more wealth, and most are shiatty about how they get it, and what they do with it once they have it.

So tax the farking rich. No one needs 100 billion dollars. No one. So we created space vacations? Cool. Create a non-profit that builds hospitals where they're needed, not just where there's a profit margin. We got our goods on a two day delivery schedule? Neat. Build top tier schools in impoverished areas then give them to the city.

If they won't do something with it other than build massive car collections and even tackier homes, then tax that money and use it to actually make society better. Or, you know, run shiatty dress makers out of town with a solid public attorney office.

Or we could send another rich white guy to space. Which seems like a better use of generational wealth?

The state says I owe over 20k on profits I made selling a house. Nevermind the estate tax didn't apply and my worthless attorney filed everything except the final document for probate. I'm still gonna pay. And while not happy to pay as much as I do for each paycheck, I like things funded. I pay more than my fair share. So shut it.
