Posted on 12/19/2011 1:18:20 PM PST by John Semmens
Left-wing crank Jane Fonda lent her support to President Obamas 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. Theres 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 shouldnt be anyones option to decide how much of his or her own wealth to keep. That decision should belong to the government. Its 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.
if you missed any of this week's other semi-news posts you can find them at...
Those who want a large/larger gov’t should be the ones to pay for it.
Where was she in a coma ? This tax the rich is so old news.
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!
Well, she might as well sweep as she walks along....
Boy, I almost bit on that one! I could easily imagine her spewing that socialist claptrap!
whoops how dopey do I feel.
Does anyone care what this cow says? Drivel!
And all the while she will hide her wealth from taxes.
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.
What’s she doing speaking out? I thought she was in mourning over Kim Jong Mentally Ill?
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?
