“America has the most progressive tax structure in the world of modern countries. Yet the left is still wanting to tax the job creators even more……………………how stupid.

Quit spending other people money!”

~ Book of Faces status of a wingnut who believes that asking rich people to pay their fair share (not MORE, but their FAIR SHARE) is “class warfare” and liberal economic terrorism.

Have a seat over here………..Elizabeth Warren wants to talk to you:

“There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody. You built a factory out there—good for you! But I want to be clear. You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn’t have to worry that maurauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did.”

And so does Stephen Colbert:

And from his “The Word” segment:

Michele Bachmann is right.  Everyone needs to contribute, because we all benefit from the government programs she has promised to eliminate on Day 1.  (Day 2: Blink)

So, just how do these freeloaders dodge federal income taxes?  Well, it turns out half of them don’t pay simply because they make less than $20,000 a year.  That’s right.  They are living the good life in their cushy jobs as fry cooks, Walmart greeters, and slaughterhouse floor grate de-brainers.  “Oh look at me, I have my own apron!”

And before you cry for the poor, remember, 90% of soup kitchens reported increased demand over the last year.  That’s right.  The so-called “poor” have special kitchens just for soup!  So save your tears, folks.  (Makes Excellent Soup Stock)

And it’s not just low-income workers, because over 20% of these Mooch-Americans are elderly people enjoying tax-free Social Security benefits, money they use to fuel their decadent lifestyles sitting around the house taking drugs all day.  (Getting Their Plavix On!)

And I believe that we cannot stop at the elderly and the working poor.  We must also tax everyone who’s found the ultimate loophole in our income tax code: having no income.  Just because you’re one of the 16.6 million unemployed Americans doesn’t mean you can’t pull your weight.  That’s why God gave you two kidneys.  (Cry Me A Liver)

And those who say, oh you’re going to tax the poor to death, I say death is no excuse for not paying their share.  (Can’t Worm Your Way Out Of It)  I mean, just think of these lazy bones lying on their backs all day in their fancy satin boxes.  Hey, I don’t know about you, but my bed doesn’t have a lid.  (But Does Have Racecar Wheels)

So folks, let’s not just broaden the tax base.  I say, we need to deepen the tax base.  And let’s force these Cadaverican-Americans to pay, in the forms of rings, watches, and whatever else we can pry from their cold dead hands.  (Leave The Guns!)  That is not grave robbing.  It’s grave sharing.  Because to solve the deficit, we have no choice but to tax the working poor, the non-working poor, and the non-living poor.  Otherwise we might have to consider raising taxes on the wealthy.  (Over Their Dead Bodies)

And that’s the Wørd.  We’ll be right back.”

In an alternate universe I would SO totally be Stephen Colbert’s babymomma.

    Every time R’s start squawking about class warfare you can rest assured they are in the process of cutting the average worker off at the hips. They’ve already cut us off at the knees and they’re working their way up.

      And their little winged monkeys step right up to the chopping block, having deluded themselves into thinking that the majority of corporations really give a damn about the little guys and will be Daddy Warbucks to their Little Orphan Annies, if ONLY that awful gubbmint would GTFOOTW.

  2. And corporations actually get a refund from our government thanks to gifted CPAs and former IRS employees they hire.

  3. The GOP has gotten the new buzz phrase ‘the job creators’ out there and the alumni of Nutter U are using it well.

    Whilst at the Dr’s office today I was stuck watching Faux Noise..I wish I had a buck for every time I heard that fucking phrase in the span of 10-15 minutes. I could fly to DC and beat Boehner with my louisville slugger.

    LOL – if a waiting room is full I’ll put up with it, but if there aren’t many people and they are not actively watching, I’ll march right on over and change the channel to Spongebob and DARE somebody to say something.
    ( Ocassionaly, I can actually pull off the Angry Black Face!) :)

  5. Its way up on the ceiling m’dear…or I would of as no one was watching it. The brown brother was like me, he put his back to the screen, and I said..oh goody Fucking Fox Noise. He smiled and said, yeah, I know.

    Remember, I live in deepest, darkest part of Cali’s Redneckistan. :lol:

    HATE those sky-high ones.
    I’ll never forget the time I was sitting in an optometrist’s office with my son, and there was one other elderly liberal woman there waiting on her husband. She asked the receptionist to please change the channel from Fox News to ANYTHING else , and the receptionist snippily told her that “they” were Fox News people and the channel would not be changed (so much for customer service!!!!). So the lady walks back to her seat, cursing under her breath, sits there for a minute, then gets up, walks over to the TV area, sticks her finger down her throat and blows chunks. The receptionist hears the commotion and runs out from behind the desk FREAKING out, and the lady sweetly says to her ” I told you that channel was making me ill”.

    Bubba and I were both horrified and snickering our asses off at the same time.

    Just change the damn chanel, lady……..keep your customers happy and their lunches off your floor.
