Democrats Make Too Much Money

Filed under: Defending America,Democratic Idiocy,Taxes — Sisyphus @ 4:43 am

Via Copious Dissent, we learn the reason why Democrat politicians hate honest, hard-working Americans and their values: Democrats have too much money to care.

Recently I read an article out of Washington about Millionaire Congressmen. From the article I learned that Nancy Pelosi holds stocks and property worth well into the millions. Harry Reid reported property around his hometown, as well as investments valued at several million dollars. Ted Kennedy reported four Kennedy family trust funds worth $20 million to $100 million. Mrs. Bill Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton, made more than $10 million for giving speeches (they presumably hold joint bank accounts). Then in an effort to keep the story balanced, we hear that Mitch McConnel, the only Republican listed, had property worth between 1 and $5 million, along with retirement accounts worth close to $1 million.

I agree with his analysis of this, too:

Before I address two quick points, I must clarify that I am not against making obscene profits; we live in a free country and everyone has a right to their own pursuit of happiness. With that being said, it is pretty obnoxious that the people who want to tax the crap out of the economy, attack businesses that produce goods that people voluntarily purchase, and pretend to support the middleclass, are the ones who make the most money doing absolutely nothing.

I think the obvious solution would be some form of patriotism tax or war tax. We all know that freedom isn’t free, and neither is free speech. So why not tax people every time they say something unpatriotic in wartime? Say whatever you want, but pay for it. Questioning the President? Fork over $1,000. Saying the war in Iraq is lost? $5,000. Supporting Islamism? Sure, but pay $10,000 so we can buy some more guns to kill Islamists with.

I’m pro-tax, too, Dems, but only if the tax is narrowly tailored to helping America win this war, both at home AND abroad. And I suspect this particular tax will fall squarely on the people who deserve to pay it the most- the moonbat politicians who enable the terrorists with their defeatist remarks. Either they’ll suddenly become much more pro-American, or they’ll find themselves poor and then they’ll wind up living in pro-American neighborhoods anyway.

  1. Yeah. If we can have a Death Tax, why not a Defeatocrat Tax?

  2. Just copyright all words that deal with defeat or any other form of anti-Americanism then sit back and enjoy the royalties.

  3. Well, how about a politician tax, seeing that the reps aren´t any less wealthy or corrupt.

    Or just make the jobs in politics to be without payment. (Except job expenses like travelling and such.)

    “We all know that freedom isn’t free, and neither is free speech.”

    Not if you´re born in a democracy.

    “So why not tax people every time they say something unpatriotic in wartime? Say whatever you want, but pay for it. Questioning the President? Fork over $1,000. Saying the war in Iraq is lost? $5,000. Supporting Islamism? Sure, but pay $10,000 so we can buy some more guns to kill Islamists with.”

    Okay, but only if:
    Say that we should attack Iran -10.000$
    Saying that we should ignore the Un -25.000$
    Saying that we should nuke something -50.000$

    Honestly, democracy can´t work without free speech and you´re right now trying to restrain free speech. So:
    Why do you hate democracy?

  4. Actually, I think the only way to ensure that the freedom of speech is actually maintained in the manner in which it was intended, is to tax all those who EXIST to question the white, Christian, male power structure for which President Brownback represents. In other words, there should be a daily penalty, expressed monetarily, exercised against those who fail to demonstrate ideological purity. Obviously homosexuals go straight to the top of the list, as do scientists, those with college degrees, women with high school degrees, ALL “persons” who are not citizens of the United States of America, those who do not carry the Bible with them at ALL times, those who give any credence to the constitution (or the rule of law, or due process, or equality, etc.), and generally all those who refuse to take the loyalty to Brownback oath.

    Of course, the enforcement mechanism behind the “In Defense of Free Speech Act,” will have to involve intense monitoring of all individuals, and probably the internment of the entirety of the federal judiciary at Gitmo.

    This is the only way to make sure that the right Americans may always enjoy the right to free speech, and the right to practice strictly the word of Christ.

  5. Hmmm, the democrat party is the party of the rich capitalists, the republican party is for the common man and the poor, the world is flat, Brownback is going to be president…

    Sisy, are you from that alternate universe where everything is different?
    (That would explain a lot!)

    America founded democracy. We also founded yours, despite your contrary wishes. We can handle our democracy however we choose, to butt out of it.

    Baby steps, St. Legalize. Baby steps.

    I’m from planet Earth. Maybe you liberals should come visit it once in a while, but to most of you it’s just “flyover country.”

  7. How about we eliminate the income tax and just have a poll tax and just on Dhimocrats?

  8. There’s nothing wrong with being rich. All true Americans aspire to this. But it isn’t American to interfere with the lives of other people. All these communist Defeatocrats should be trying to get rid of the death tax to make their own lives better and should leave the poor to Jesus.

    Yeah, Jesus takes care of the poor, just look at all those Christian poor people in Ethiopia, they have it so good (famines are staged by liberal media!)

    Wait, what? I’ve been to Ethiopia and Sudan and there are a ton of starving, poor Christian kids there who will kill to get a candy bar.

    Maybe if you left your house.

  11. “Wait, what? I’ve been to Ethiopia and Sudan and there are a ton of starving, poor Christian kids there who will kill to get a candy bar.”

    A ton? OK, finally, some hard data. If you figure that each starving, poor Christian kid weighs 50 lbs on average, then that only adds up to 40 kids in two whole countries, which I think is pretty good. In fact, I think it’s safe to assume that these 40 kids are probably just actors imported by the liberal media.

    Face it. The fact of the matter is that Skeptic is right. This is all just made up by the media.

    Is it just me, people, or is Skeptic getting smarter?

  12. Nope, I’m not getting smarter, just getting more sarcastic…

  13. “All these communist Defeatocrats should be trying to get rid of the death tax to make their own lives better and should leave the poor to Jesus.”

    Exactly. Jesus Himself said, “The poor you have always with you, but I am with you only a short time longer.”

    “Nope, I’m not getting smarter, just getting more sarcastic…”

    I’m very sorry to hear that, Skeptic.

  14. I’m not. It just adds to the humour, when B4Bers decide that maybe they’ve ‘converted’ someone to Brownback-olatry.

  15. lol @ DPS

    When I said a ton, I meant, “they were everywhere.” Of course, there were a great deal of starving Muslim and athesist children as well.

    Worst thing I ever had to do was obey the military rule about not giving these kids anything. As a contractor, you’d think I’d have some flexibility, but no. Bush does not want me giving my food or money to starving kids because then there’d be no pity movement for him to play on at G8 conferences.

    It broke my heart when I had to say, “no” to a kid and he said, “Jesus bless you anyway, sir.”

  16. ALL “persons” who are not citizens of the United States of America

    You know, they are not living in your country and your government could require them to pay all day. The only answer would be be: Screw you!

    “America founded democracy. We also founded yours, despite your contrary wishes. We can handle our democracy however we choose, to butt out of it.”

    The thing is, you´re not talking about democracy here, but rather about some kind of religious fascism. That´s what the USA would get turned into by your ideas. So, why do you hate democracy? (PS: Weren´t the ancient greeks first?)
