2 Why don't we start by taking money from Michael Moore.  He's a good liberal, you probably only have to ask nicely and he'll fork it over.

7 but, like, you forgot to cut all the military...cuz, like...bombs and stuff hurt people. We could, like, give all that money to the poor, and stuff... In all seriousness, I'm a capitalist. If you take all of my shit away from me today, I'll get it all back tomorrow. What can I say? I have mad money making skills like that.

Maybe his lard will catch fire. They would never be able to put a grease fire that size out before his rotten maggot infested innards were cooked, assuming anyone would try. Hell, I wouldn't piss on his burning ass if my bladder was bursting.

16 If you take all of my shit away from me today, I'll get it all back tomorrow.

Only if there's stuff available to replace it- and there wouldn't be.

Also, it took the ultra rich (in most cases) years- even decades- to amass the wealth they have.  If you took it all away today (and, remember, that requires liquidating all their assets, too, so they have no capital), they would eventually make it back- but not in time to help with the next several years' taxes.

24 Has anybody seen a picture of Bill Gates recently? Suddenly he got old. It's a reminder of how far back in time the PC revolution was, relatively speaking. Then was the dot com boom and bust. What's the next big thing that will generate sudden millionaires? Anything? That's why I think we're in for a long spell of stagflation/semi-depression.

I can't watch either, but I'm guessing the gist is Iowahawk's point from a recent post- you'd basically have to confiscate so much wealth to run the government without a deficit that there would be virtually no wealth left after just one year of doing that.

Which is a rather sobering thought.

31 @19: One of the themes of Dreams From Bill Ayers is Obama's terror of being found to be not authentically black (given his upbringing was best described as "rich white preppie").  If someone can poke him there properly, it'll really throw him off.

I generally think that anyone running in the primaries is a good thing.  If he's as conservative and well spoken as I'm hearing, he could put a whole lot of pressure on the actual possible nominees to push their game forward.

Posted by: KG at March 31, 2011 09:46 AM (DeCj1)

35 And yet they think the problem can be solved by yet another tax hike. History has shown that every time they hike taxes by a $1.00 they raise spending by $1.25 and more.

Why has no Republican yet made the statement that these insane 3.7 trillion dollar budgets were supposed to be temporary stimulus to avoid a catastrophic failure and that they must return to where they were before 2008?

And that doesn't even address the fact that the so-called stimulus was nothing more than the pent up socialist demands of the welfare set which resulted in NOTHING.

It's always a negative when a candidate who's not capable of winning in the primary runs.  All they do is split the primary votes, resulting in candidates "winning" a state with 20% of the vote.

I like Cain, and I'm sure he'd make a good President.  His complete lack of experience in elected office or the military makes him a non-starter though.

Oops.  Should read:

38 It's even worse than mr. Whittle presents.  he seems to be overlooking the fact that laws and taxes do not apply to wealthy, connected liberal democrats and their corporations.  Just the vermin.

Posted by: Raving Lunatic at March 31, 2011 09:51 AM (reXpC)

39 Its a nice video version of Iowahawk's written work.

While its nice to see a mathematical "proof" that you can't run a welfare state by seizing the wealth of all the rich, in fact we know its empirically true by the catastrophic failure of every single regime in human history where its actually been tried.

Of course logic and empirical fact have no sway over emotional arguments by liberals, explaining why Communism still manages to have some appeal even in the 21st century.

Bill double counted.  First he took all the money from folks making 250K, something like 1.4T then he killed and took everything from all the billionares and almost billionares again later on for 1.2T, which would already be gone from the first round.  Oh and selling all the houses in Beverly Hills at current market value?  Who will buy them if all the rich are broke?

So bottom line is, we dont even have enough money to get us through half a year at current levels.

49 ....Which begs the question....What does this obscene amount of money buy us anyway?  At 1/10 the price we still don't get our money's worth out of this shitty government.

Posted by: Lemmiwinks at March 31, 2011 10:58 AM (54F2e)

50 Another thing.  Ultra Rich people don't put their cash in mattresses.  Most of their wealth is not liquid assets so you would have to seize assets not cash.  How many bills can you pay with used factory equipment that you creditors don't want.

You should have walked up to him with a coke in hand, saying "wow, Michael Moore! Can I get your autograph?", tripping and dumping the coke on his head.

Apologize profusely, stating that you're a big fan.....and once he's calmed down, give him a wink and a smile as you walk out the door. That should ruin his day.
