It's time to abolish the personal income tax.

This constant, chronic kvetching about how some neighbor is getting rich by not paying his fair share has got to stop.

It destroys the public peace and creates lasting enmity among individuals who would otherwise not have a reason to hate each other.

I propose we round up all of the advocates of the personal income tax up, including those demanding the current tax be raised on others, and take them out and fence them in permanently.

“These are large multinational corporations — Viacom, GE, Rupert Murdoch — that own these studios,” said Moore at the Traverse City event. “Why do they need our money, from Michigan, from our taxpayers, when we’re already broke here? I mean, they play one state against another, and so they get all this free cash when they’re making billions already in profits. What’s the thinking behind that?” - Michael Moore

Weeks later he got himself a subsidy.

"...to demand higher taxes on corporations..."

Aren't these the same liberals who are screaming about corporations taking jobs overseas?

Supporters of MoveOn.Org have organized more than 300 gatherings around the nation on Monday to demand higher taxes on corporations and wealthy Americans who are "raking it in and continue to get tax break after tax break."

Well, when it comes to corporations like G.E., the Libturds have a point.

G.E. paid zero taxes on over 14 billion dollars profit last year.

And as the charts below show, the top 5% of wage earners already pay over 50% of income taxes. So, clearly, they have their heads up their Bidens when it comes to "the rich" not paying their fair share.

Every time this theft-by-tax proposal is made it should be noted that none of this is a “tax the wealthy” scheme. It is a “tax those who are trying to get wealthy” scheme. The wealthy have already made and kept enough money to be deemed wealthy. When one of these Pluto-Commies proposes to tax the accumulated wealth of the wealthy I’ll believe they’re serious. I still wouldn’t support it, mind you. I’d just like to see them squirm.

"The right-wing wants to convince us we're broke so that they can push through their radical agenda," which includes slashing public services, eliminating workers' rights, and destroying jobs, MoveOn.org said in an email message to supporters.

And they say drug use is a victimless crime.

HOW MUCH IS “YOUR FAIR SHARE”???

In Medieval times the Serf’s were REQUIRED to give up 50% of their daily output, They were considered SLAVES.
Currently the average Middle Class Family pays roughly 50% of their earnings to Government. Couple that with the Chains of insurmountable debt being passed on thru GENERATIONS to Hundreds of Millions of INNOCENT CHILDREN. I would like to know just HOW MUCH IS MY FAIR SHARE??

CORRECTION:

"The rightLEFT-wing wants to convince us we're broke so that they can push through their radical agenda AND SPREAD EVERYONE ELSE’S WEALTH," which includes slashing public services PROFITS THOUGH NONSENSICAL CAP N’ TRADE LAWS, eliminating workers' rights ONCE THEY HAVE TURNED AMERICA COMMUNIST, and destroying jobs AS THE LEFT’S POLICIES ALMOST ALWAYS DO.

There, fixed it.

Michael Moore. What a wad!
He’s one of the wealthiest people who ever lived.

He can give up his fortune and retire to a country that is already Communist instead of trying to ruin ours.

If you’ve ever listened to the song “I’d Love to Change the World” by Ten Years After, you are familiar with the liberal illogic of higher taxation on the wealthy:

Tax the rich
Feed the poor
Till there are
No rich no more

The purpose of higher taxes is not to help those less fortunate, but to punish those who have the audacity to succeed. Liberals always claim they are trying to help, when in fact, they are really trying to destroy.

(Nice guitar solo, though)
