"A word to the rich who think that taxes are too high"
A word to the rich who think that taxes are too high.
[Stand by for the Chekhist liquidation squads?]
LEAVE. Take your money and go. America will survive without you.
[Um...see all that stuff in your basement? Say goodbye to them too.]
People who who think nothing of throwing money away on exclusive country clubs or luxury cars for every day of the week complain that taxes are killing them. well did paying taxes ever take food out of the mouths of your children? They do for the working poor. Go away if you want to tax the poor further, they cannot afford any more taxation then they already have.
[What tax? At poverty level there is no income tax. Only benefits.]
Many rich are living here because our tax structure lets them keep more of their money than other countries. But even here they complain. What do you want, no taxes? Why do you not want to give back to the society that made you rich in the first place? Is the thought that some poor person may benefit from a social program so repugnant? If you would rather people starve, then leave we do not need you.
[You're going to need the enormous amount of tax revenue that the EVIL rich generate.]
America is the best country in the world to be rich in. When you pay country club dues you do it with the knowledge that being there gives you access to business contacts to continue your decadent life. Taxes are the membership dues for America. They allow you to live like kings here in relative safety. If you like your peasants even more desperately poor go elsewhere.
[With his hangup on country clubs, I'm guessing that DUmmy angrycarpenter is a socially awkward jerk who wouldn't be allowed into a country club even if he could afford to pay the dues.]
So rather than ruin our country for the other 90% whom you despise. Go away. Take all of your precious money and go elsewhere. Even if it means depression we will be better off in the long run without your manipulation of our government just for the sake of having your cake and eating it too.
[A slight dose of reality from DUmmie angrycarpenter since he realizes his dopey plan would mean a depression. But that suffering would be worth it since the EVIL rich folks would be purged from America. And now to hear from his fellow Bolshevik DUmmies...]
I do agree that they should shut up, but we do need them
They do help fuel the economy with all of the expensive stuff they consume.
[Like the yachts that Teddy & Co. tried to impose high taxes on. The end result was fewer yachts built and more workers tossed out of their jobs.]
No, we really don't. Wall Street needs them and politicians think they need them, but the country as a whole not only doesn't need them, but would be a far better place without them. They are a huge and constant drain on the rest of us.
[The Stalinist faction of DUmmieland speaks up.]
The ultra wealthy have no place in america... I have seen these super rich individuals spend the equvilant of a year's worth of a working man's salary on meaningless shit.
[Like those Gulfstreams that Algore jets around the world in?]
Well, there's one good thing that will come with global warming. These child-slave-f*cking assholes will be drowned.
[Don't hold back. Tell us how insanely angry you really are.]
They are here to use our country for no other purpose then to get more money. They use their influence to control our government, destroy our environment, and turn our poorest citizens into a resourse to be used and then discarded. I am sure that there are rich who do not fit into this description, they can stay.
[How very tolerant of you.]
Wealth should be taxed progressively.
[It already is, DUmmie.]
Who are you to decide who deserves wealth? Stop being so arrogant and allow people to live their own lives! If you want to fund a program, then ask for voluntary donations. Don't force anyone else to pay.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Remember, those who guard your gated community are from the class you are trying to keep out.
[Uh-Oh! I better check to see if an angry DUmmie is working at our front gate.]
They have every intention of leaving, once they have bled out every penny from the economy they can. Then they'll leave us in the gutter living off the scraps.
[You have my permission to gnaw on the chicken bones I am tossing into the scrap heap.]
Do you realize that by the standards of the history of the world, YOU are rich.
[And this DUmmie WINS a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity!]
Demonizing the rich for not wanting to pay more taxes is not going to improve anything. If you frame the debate as us vs them, you are just going to make things worst.
[Perhaps but you are sure making things FUnnie!]
Us Vs. them is how they operate. We are the designated losers.
[You sure are a loser.]
