Fonda Demands Higher Taxes on Rich
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 17 Dec 2011 | John Semmens

Posted on 12/19/2011 1:18:20 PM PST by John Semmens

Left-wing crank Jane Fonda lent her support to President Obama’s “tax-the-rich” mantra by recounting that “all the rich people I know favor higher taxes.”

Fonda disdained the option of voluntarily paying more. “Sure, we could freely hand over more money if we wanted to,” she admitted. “There’s nothing stopping us from giving the government more of what we have. The problem with that, though, is that the volition would still be in the hands of the individual. People could still opt not to give.”

“What this country needs is a collective redistribution of wealth,” Fonda continued. “It shouldn’t be anyone’s option to decide how much of his or her own wealth to keep. That decision should belong to the government. It’s a matter of principle. Do we want to live in a world where the individual charts his own selfish course? Or do we want a society where the distribution of output is socially determined? Those of us on the right side of this moral divide stand with the President in his quest to take from those who have and give to those who need.”

Those who want a large/larger gov’t should be the ones to pay for it.

Why wasn’t she executed as a traitor? If she was not one there is no such thing.

I could have gone the rest of my life without reading that one’s name John. Still it is another good semi-news, semi-satire article.

No we don’t want a world where the individual charts their own course Jane. Therefore, The House of Vocations deems that you shall be a Street Sweeper of the City. Let your brothers will be done!

I just can't believe the drivel this woman spews. She is just like the rest of her ilk. She really believes that your money is the Governments to take as they see fit and your selfish if you don't give it up. Yes I know hate is a bad thing but I hate these people because they are hypocrites. When told she can make a voluntary contribution she declines. So it's good for you but not her. This woman is the text book definition of a Socialist. She would be a member of the ruling class and we would be the simply the workers.

You needn’t feel dopey, ‘cause what you posted is right on the mark about Fonda, and her ilk.

So what it’s one of John’s humor articles, semi-news, semi-satire. Doesn’t matter.

How 'bout if we tax the rich who don't create, or haven't created, jobs for others? Huh, Janie? (And no, you didn't create those popcorn popper jobs. The guy who owns the movie theater gets credit for those.)

Why should anyone care what Jane Fonda, likely America's renegade representative in Kim Jung Il's state run funeral thinks?

If Fonda had her way, we'd all be wailing for the TV camera's at the news of Jung Il's death.

I wish someone would offer to film a movie with her as the star. The thing is, everyone who works on the movie will be paid the same thing, from the biggest star to the guy who cleans up after the horses.

Do you think she’d go for that?

John Semmens, my Man, I’m going to need a little help on this one: What is the difference between statements made by Karl Marx and Jane Fonda?

One said: “ - - - take from those who have and give to those who need.”

The other said: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”

Who said what: have/need or ability/need.

BTW, surely Karl is not Jane’s Grandpa?

"“There’s nothing stopping us from giving the government more of what we have."

Wow. I always chuckled that she was a commie for going to North Vietnam for a visit during the war. But after reading that it’s pretty obvious that she really IS a commie.

Traitors should have to give up their right to tell us what to do....maybe N. Vietnam would like her opinion.

So it’s wrong for 1% to dominate the economy, but they should decide tax policy?

I don’t want their money taken out of the private economy. I don’t care what they want.

Just wondering, if all the rich people she knew didn’t want to pay any taxes, would that make it the best policy?
