World of Class Warfare - The Poor's Free Ride Is Over


 

Comments

Warren Buffet (and the many people like him) shows us that it's not always about rich versus poor.

Middle- and lower-income people who rationally look after their best interests want richer people to be taxed progressively so that the lower-income people can advance themselves as far as they are able, and also have a safety net if they fall behind.

Rich people who are smart want to be taxed progressively because they want the government to invest in infrastructure, which will boost the economy (and keep all those middle- and lower-income employees in employable shape) and that helps the rich stay rich in the long term.

Note that I am qualifying these two groups with "rational" and "smart", because we have a third group who populate neo-conservative parties and their propaganda networks (eg. Fox News). These people are not rational or smart. They are deluded and ignorant. Sociopathic corporate entities who only care about the next fiscal quarter are their enablers, and they team up with equally insane bigoted religions, and the result looks frighteningly powerful...

The blatant manipulation of the redneck elements of the lower-middle and middle class by the Murdoch-Ailes-Limbaugh-Beck-Koch... group is gets so obvious it is breathtaking. Make sure you keep 'em hating the 'freeloaders' among the poor who are loafing their way to 1% of all income - so they don't think about you siphoning off 25%.

I sometimes see it like "Murdoch-Ailes-Limbaugh-Beck-Koch" are the priests, and the "redneck elements" are the flock. And they all want to put their Kool-Aid in the water supply.

One of the best Daily Show bits in a while. The thing is that right-wing morons just refuse to back down on any of their lunatic stances. How much income equality would be too much in their opinion or is there no limit to how unbalanced we can become financially?

It is quite clear that there is no limit.

Look at bachman and Perry, these people adore "unbalanced".

These clips constitute some of the best things the Daily Show has done since the Presidential election (I'm thinking of Jon's reaction to Sarah Palin's 'Real America' BS). I'm so glad you reposted it.

Bam, you are a conservative.

If we are unable to identify reality and therefore unable act upon what we see, then we are not simply childish but have reduced ourselves to figures of fun—ridiculous victims of our unconscious. The conscious human holds happily onto a sense of his own ridiculousness. - John Ralston Saul

The FOX News position is becoming ever increasingly, utterly, ridiculously, insane. And yet the mouthbreathers out there who buy into this insanity believe it like it's holy writ.

The Daily Show remains t he most brilliant mix of reality news and comedy out there.
