ALL taxes are redistribution of wealth, for all of the ignorant douchebags cheering John McCain. ALL taxes. You people seem to need to return to civics class. Taking tax dollars and paying for public schools? redistribution of wealth, Einstein.
What’s funny is how the closed-minded are now using “socialist” as an epithet, much like they use “liberal.” Firstly, I defy any of these people to actually, accurately define socialism. Secondly, I defy any of them to show anything socialist about Obama’s platforms.
Trickle Down Economics was supposed to be the Republican, Capitalist, Friedmanesque way of redistributing the wealth. Privatization of gain, and socialization of loss seems to be the end of that line. You want to start talking about redistribution of wealth? All of it upward? I’ll take Robin Hood over Gordon Gecko, any day of the fucking week. Even the goddam Kevin Costner Robin Hood.
And the Obama campaign didn’t say one thing against Joe the Plumber; that was the media, who merely checked out who he was, something the McCain campaign signally failed to do.
I haven’t heard Obama say he was going to cut cheques for the poor as a way of reducing their taxes, either. But we know how poorly Sen. McCain did in school, so it’s understandable that he would not be able to see any other way of reducing taxes. Oooohhhh, and with his next breath he talks about the two wars the US is fighting. He hasn’t bothered to tell anyone how he’s going to pay to fight those wars, with his tax cuts.
I’ll take one SecState Powell over any number of Haigs, Bakkers, and Kissingers, too. You go, Colin Powell! One of the very few honourable figures of the entire Bush II administration.
Amy Poehler’s Palin rap is the best thing I’ve seen in ages.
