Pamela Anderson had more like 15 years than minutes.

Oh, wait, you mean the new politician that literally just took office. She's half your age and has accomplished more than you, but of course you dismiss her as just "that chick." Much like how yesterday you called another woman a "bitch."

You really love using dismissing women like this. Which is probably why you hate AOC. Her politics would help you immensely, and as others have noticed, your politics are solely "what's good for Cutter is good for everyone, and anyone that disagrees is evil!" so you should like her, but then again, you love dismissing women, so...

I've been saying it here forever, but going back to something similar to Eisenhower's tax plan seems like a no-brainer. It's so odd to me that so many people that would benefit from it, and have no hope of ever making $10MM a year, seem to think it's a bad idea.

It's easy to say "take" what doesn't belong to you.

That said... going back to 24 tax brackets, everyone paying higher taxes, tax laws have changed where property is on longer considered "depreciation"... you are smoking some good stuff.

If anything... it should be a flat one bracket tax with ZERO deductions for EVERYONE. (except of course poverty level being exempt)

Yes we would mostly all pay a little more... but the asshats in congress wouldn't be paying 15% while the rest of us are paying higher percentage brackets. Everyone would be paying the same percentage, which is fair.

Unlikely given he is a Canuck.

What is really amusing is how the right how clearly lost their minds over her existence. The posting of the dance video was especially telling. A woman dancing in public! Get the torches, build a bonfire! She probably has gotten more press than she "deserves", but this can be said about plenty of people. And I think I'd rather hear about a new House Rep. who is excited about her job than some stupid reality star, or musician going through their third rehab.

It is difficult to define "fair" in this context. But I suspect a very large majority would prefer a graduated/progressive tax system. There were plenty of extremely rich people even when the top bracket was 90%..

You're thinking about it wrong. A flat tax is an absolute disaster, because it just gives the people with wealth, who ultimately decide who keeps wealth, absolute incentive to keep it for themselves. A marginal tax rate starts giving incentive not to.

Back when Eisenhower was president, you didn't have CEOs doing things like cutting 10% of the workforce then giving themselves a $10MM bonus for having done so. Why? Because they couldn't do that. They'd keep 9 cents for every dollar they paid themselves, ultimately making that raise, or bonus, somewhat worthless to them. But employees that kept 75 cents for every dollar saw much more value in every dollar paid to them, so salary, y'know, actually trickled down. The fantastically wealthy had little incentive not to, let's coin a term, "share the wealth."

"Belongs to" is a weird term. When you decide what to pay the people doing the actual work, you think it all belongs to you.

Well, there goes every charitable organization. They're done.

And we better start building about 200 million rental homes/apartments, because nobody but the 1% will own a house anymore either.

There's nothing radical about a national healthcare system or in asking the ultra-wealthy to pay a high rate on the extreme ends of their income. A vast majority of the developed world does the former and we used to do the latter, until really rich folks started writing tax law. What ought to scare you is the Mango Maggot controlling our nuclear arsenal and the fact that he is just plain stupid enough to use it during one of his Twitter meltdowns.

Because it's literally a different way of thinking about it. He's approaching taxation as paying for things, I'm approaching it as a salary cap. Literally thinking about its purpose differently.

You'd call "isn't that chick's 15 minutes up?" an opinion? Or at least one worth bringing up? He didn't criticize her policy, he complained about hearing about her. Given that she was just sworn in this month, he's going to be hearing about her for a long time.

"I disagree with her policy on XYZ" is an opinion. "That chick sucks" is something a moron says.

In this case it would be radical since it's entirely different from what's already been established. My tax dollars go to healthcare systems that we currently have in place to make sure the elderly and poor have coverage, and it makes more sense to improve upon existing systems versus create an entirely new system (again). Obamacare failed miserably. AOC's ideas are unrealistic and she continuously fails by presenting 'great ideas' without having a feasible plan to implement.
