War on the Rich

Not going to get into it. Seriously.

Yeah, the tax cuts for the wealthy that served us so very well are going to expire. As they were designed to. Yeah the top bracket rate is returning to 1990s level rather than 2001-2008 level. If your memory of history is so bad you think the economy was better in the latter than the former, I can’t help you, see a therapist.

Really I only want to make one comment, from Al Franken’s Lies (And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them): A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

Barbara Tuchman described a 1358 peasant revolt in her own book, entitled “A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous Fourteenth Century”.

During that revolt, peasants took control of one of the manor houses, killed the knight, and roasted him on a spit…in full view of his wife and children. Up to a dozen of the peasants raped the widow, then forced her to eat the roasted flesh of her husband before they killed her — all in front of the children.

That is class warfare. A four point jump back to old levels in taxes, is sound economic policy. Get the difference through your thick skulls, and STFU.
