I thoroughly enjoy this guy’s posts… He puts everything so simply and perfectly…. If you haven’t happened across his blog yet, check it out. From the perspective of a one-pro cyclist… In this post: What not to eat…
A bit of nostalgia – http://wp.me/p6Enpd-3X
We can’t ship illegal aliens back? We can’t round them up and put them in detention centers and ship them home? It’ll break up families?
Hey, if 10 or 15 million taxpayers decided to simply quit paying taxes, do you think you’d hear those same arguments? Do you think the head of the IRS, who illegally targeted legal citizens and conservative groups for government intrusion (government sponsored rape, from the sound of it), would say, “Well, you know, we just can’t find them, and even if we did, if we did anything about it, it would break up families to take their money. Kids would struggle with hunger. So we’re just going to let that go.”? I don’t think so. It would look more like this:
10 to 15 million people would have everything the government could get, confiscated, each and every one of them, without a second thought. And within a year.
I’m not saying I’m for deportation, I like some of the other proposals floating out there – guest worker programs and such, with capped registration periods… I’m just saying, if the shoe were on a different foot, you wouldn’t hear the government whining about enforcing the law.
Next, these goofy kids who are complaining that they want free college and they wish for the government to confiscate money that rich people make to pay for it… Well, I’m not in the top 1% but I’m in the top 10, so I’m going to take this personally.
First, you can lick my sweaty a$$#0£€ after a century ride, you petulant f@(&. Second, you’re dumb enough to assume that I’m too stupid to miss the cap… Folks, I can legally make it work out so I’m $500 under the cap, each and every year, without suffering consequences – and you can bet your sweet ass I would. In fact, it wouldn’t even be that hard…
See, as major corporations, our tax estimates have to be a little more intricate than “estimates”. My accountant does monthly financial reports for my company that go into the tax portfolio… I know, to the dollar, how much I’m going to get nicked by the IRS.
All I have to do, if I get close to making too much, is simply turn down work. “Nope, sorry, too busy.”
My corporate tax rate stays at 50%. By $500.
Now, here’s the real bitch, you confiscatory pissants… The people whom I pay to do the heavy lifting, the hard work of building your $#!+, would obviously have to be laid off during those pullbacks to keep me under the cap. In other words, your ridiculous desire to make someone else pay for something you want has unintended consequences (get used to that word, it actually has real meaning once you leave the nursery) that hurt people you never intended hurting. The f@(k I wouldn’t, too – to avoid going from 50% to 90%? Are you kidding me? And if you think I’m harsh, look at all of the companies that cut hours to avoid Obamacare… Who got hurt? The workers, not the corporation. Nice work.
What do you think this is? Look at it this way, let’s use One Million Dollars in income as the cutoff – now, if this really was the cutoff, I’d have little chance of ever attaining it, that’s just too much to hope for for what I do, but I digress…
If I make $1,000,000 right now, the government takes half, or a little more, between State and Federal taxes. $500,000 goes to me, right?
Now let’s say we get into confiscation taxation (Unconstitutional by the way, equal protection under the law… it isn’t challenged now because it’s not worth the fight, but it would). If I make $999,995, I keep $499,997. But if I make $1,000,005, I only get to keep $100,002. Making Ten Dollars more means I have to pay an extra $400,000 in taxes? You’re frickin’ nuts if you think anyone will get close to that. In fact, rather than college, maybe you should go back to grade school for some remedial classes because you are truly dumber than my left nut.
Of course, it’ll be graduated, the confiscation… but whatever. You get the idea. I’m not going to get anywhere near any cutoff, wherever they put it. My kids would be the best-paid floor sweepers in America before I allowed that to happen.
Finally, while we’re ranting about stupid political crap (that’s the Royal “we”, there’s only one of me), allow me to express, with glee, just how beautiful it is to watch those Liberal bastions of miseducation, the “corporatized” universities, struggle through this. To see that bogus education turned around to impale those who taught it in the first place is one of the sexiest things I’ve ever seen in politics.
Unfortunately the kids didn’t get the meme (memo):
We don’t actually believe any of this shit. We just use it to f@(k Republicans. We’re supposed to be immunized by teaching you this drivle in the first place!
