Ha Ha Wall Street is doing to you what you have done to others. But now I'm the 99%-right

Pony boy would be laughing his butt off right now. Now that the middle class has been getting screwed by the upper class they want to whine about how unfair it is. Comical. But I guess it's good for something. I know that if the lower class was to do this we would have been shot with real bullets already. And no one would care. And I know no one would care cause it's been going on for a long time. You think you know police brutality,unjustified arrests. Sure. I think thats why I don't see any larg minority groups involved. They know what will happen to them.

Raise your own taxes

My plan is to raise my own taxes. I hear all these statistics about folks wanting the government to raise their taxes. For my 2011 filing, I plan to take less deductions and raise my own taxes a bit. Stop saying, "Raise my taxes" and just do it yourself if you are so inclined.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!: “...Out there is a fortune waiting to be had, if you think I’ll let it go your MAD!!...”

“…You got another COMING!...”



For the Morons who hate the Occupy Wall St. Protestors.

How Libertarian Economic Principles Poison Society

The other day, on his TV show, Thom debated a conservative strategist named Anthony Holm. Mr. Holm has worked for the likes of Dick Cheney, Rick Perry and other high profile conservatives and so his point of view is not without consequence (I would say dire consequences). I know that Thom does not like to talk about his guests when they are not present to defend themselves but, as I'm not Thom, I don't mind saying that I was annoyed by the smug, self-righteous and condescending attitude this man took as he defended the libertarian economic model. It really rubbed me the wrong way.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
