Ahh liberal double-think.
When a conservative talking head on TV points out that in the US, ~50% of the population doesn't pay any taxes, they are attacked by liberals who point out that while they don't pay any income taxes... they still pay payroll taxes, sales taxes, property taxes (either directly or indirectly), fuel taxes, cigarette taxes, etc... and yet here when liberals are up in arms about big evil corporations don't pay 'any taxes'... the even meaner conservative is attacked for pointing out the anger is over specifically income taxes... and that still a huge amount of taxes are still being paid in many jurisdictions... just not as much as the liberals would like.
Which is it? Does the term 'no taxes' only refer to 'income' taxes... or 'all' or 'any' taxes'?
I'm sorry for liking specificity and taking things seriously... anytime you care to start it would be a welcome change.
You can attempt to justify your pedantry by pulling strawmen out of thin air, but you know what you did.
Starting off with personal attacks and ignoring what was said above... thanks for coming out of the box admitting that you are incapable of having this discussion like an adult. I don't know why I ever think you capable of anything else.
It's a tough life you lead. I wish I could give you a hug.
Actually, he stated his opinion as fact.. while accusing many of crimes as well. Big difference.
Actually, he stated his opinion, like everyone else on this board. Your failure to interpret this is just another example of faux-bergers.
So Marx is real... but Hayek, de Tocqueville, Locke, Montesquieu, Friedman and others... all fiction.
I'm sorry that anything above "Dr. Seuss's ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!" is beyond your reading or comprehension ability.
What the ever-loving f*ck are you talking about. If you keep this up I'll have to throw a strawman tea party...
So people spending their own money... caused the collapse? Amazing how this country never collapsed until the passage of the 16th Amendment.
I could say the same thing about the 13th. I'd wager we could go investigate how many of those bootstrappy individualistic mega-corps began their lives making profits on the backs of others.
But sure, paying taxes ruins everything.
Aka "You didn't build that, someone else made that happen"... the pronouncement of a lessor upon their betters... claiming an unbreakable right to keeptheir betters in a state of permanent bondage. No work, no level of taxes paid, no deed can ever repay the debt that is owed... as for every bit it is paid... the claimed need for even more money manifests.
If they want to repay the debt in full, they can sacrifice all ownership and property and walk away. If they want to exist without the inconvenience of paying taxes back to the society that sustains them, then they can start again somewhere else a little less taxxy. Somalia is beautiful this time of year.
Just go back to singing "The wheels on the bus go round and round" as again, this is an adult conversation and you clearly have no ability to participate.
I'm doing just fine, thank you.
