The Afternoon Quote

“People need to understand that the reason we worry about raising taxes on anyone – even raising taxes on the rich – it’s not that we’re looking out for the rich, it’s not that we’re concerned that the rich won’t be able to fend for themselves, because they will. It’s because we worry about the consequences that will inevitably result from that action and that will hit the poorest among us the hardest.”

–Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)

Why? Because the plutocrats are going to come home upset and whip the serfs?

    Nah, it’s because the rich will become depressed that they can not buy that 14th home, the 40,000 sq ft one in the Caymans, drown their sorrows in a bottle of 140yo Dalmore, and run over a homeless person. I’ve seen it a thousand times.

    As any oldster can tell you, there were no rich people before St. Ronnie.

    Don’t worry, moeman, until the remote-controlled barista and burger flipper has been perfected, the rich can’t export the majority of remaining North American jobs to China.


  5. Expect any tax increase on the FFR (that’s the Filthy Rich, with linguistic benefits) to hurt working folks thusly: the FFR will make DAMNED SURE that We The People feel their spiteful wrath, and dole out misery and pink slips like never before seen, just to make sure we regret having asked them to do their fair share.

    there is a reason the US government is trying to expand the use of drones at home, and you’ve hit upon it. Drone pilots in the Philippines and Guam will be operating the burger and steamed milk drones at a retail counter near you soon enough.
