The Never-Ending Class Warfare Crusade
Townhall.com ^ | January 9, 2013 | Daniel J. Mitchell

The most-viewed post in the history of this blog is the “riding in the wagon” cartoon, but the post that has received the highest number of star-ratings is my video on class warfare.

I hope that means people share my concerns about the destructive and punitive mentality of so many of the kleptocrats in Washington.

Speaking of which, I debated one of those people on Bloomberg TV.

We got a decent amount of time, so a lot of topics were discussed. Here are the ones that merit a comment or two.

Dan Mitchell Debating Class Warfare Tax Policy on Bloomberg TV

 

One point I failed to emphasize, though, is that class-warfare taxes won’t raise much revenue because of Laffer Curve effects. My comments about successful people escaping places like France and California touched on the issue, but I should have been much more explicit.

P.S. Was I right, or was I right, when I wrote that the real national title game was played on December 1? Such a tragedy that Georgia fell four yards short of the championship.

Since ‘Bama trounced Notre Dame by 28 points and edged Georgia by 4 points, I guess that means the Bulldawgs would have crushed the Irish by 24 points. Which would have been even more impressive than when we beat them 17-10 to win the 1980 national championship.

Bo and his witch are the masters at creating hate, division, and strife. Both of these pieces of trash thrive on causing problems for others. It is their way, the Alinsky way, the Marxist way, and the vipers way. The left is all about evil, what else is there to say?

it wil never stop.

it is to deflect anger away from politicians onto a scapegoat.

Class warfare means never having to worry the classes will wise up and come after the people pitting them against each other.

Class warfare == Goldstein. read up on the 2 minutes hate.
