Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says that we should tax those nasty rich people at the rate of 70%. Now, mind you, we used to tax some people at the rate of 90%. No one ever paid it, but that’s what we were telling ’em to pay. Ninety percent
Let’s look at that for a brief moment.
Seventy percent. If you work a 40 hour week, that means that you work 28 of those hours for no compensation. Hmmm…. You work all of Monday, all of Tuesday, all of Wednesday and the first half of frickin’ Thursday for someone else. How nice of ’em to let you hang onto the rest of the much-diminished week!
That’s more than 3/5ths of the week!
Saaaayyy… that 3/5ths number kinda rings a bell! Don’t give me any hints. Oh, yeah… I remember now! At one point, slaves were considered 3/5ths of a person!(1) in America.
Let’s see, what is it you call working for someone for no compensation? Well, “Socialism” is one thing. I wonder if we can think of another word for that. Shouldn’t have to think too long, I reckon.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls herself a Socialist — a Democratic Socialist, but a Socialist all the same. We said it here, and others have said the same thing, but anyone who considers herself a Socialist is either (1) profoundly stupid, or (2) cavernously ignorant, or (3) deeply evil. There’s no reason to rule out, (4) all of the above.
People — using the term loosely — calling themselves Socialists, murdered more than 120 million people in the last century alone, making Socialism the #1 cause of premature death in the history of the world.
This boob does have one natural talent, though: if you holler real loud into one of her ears, you can hear a really nifty echo.
There ‘s another new Congresstwit, named Rashida Tlaib. One of her notable quotes is something about “impeaching the moth*****er.” I think you can fill in the missing letters. And I think you can figure out for yourselves who the “moth*****er” is. I love getting lectures about… “civility” from illiterate, potty-mouthed half-wits.
One thing of which you can always be sure: The Democrats, when taunted by graceless, cloddish, Republicans will never, ever, not ever rise to the occasion, and take any high road. Not ever. The one area where Democrats are always the overachievers is in trashiness. Democrats will never, ever, not ever be beaten for sheer contemptible, shabby, classlessness.
One other thing of which you can always be sure: If a Republican — whether he’s a real one or not — baits the Democrats, taunts them or mocks them, those selfsame Democrats will always raise the ante and display ever so clearly the vast, howling vortex of nothingness between their ears.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rashida Tlaib… add the two girls’ IQ’s together, and you still don’t catch up to a potato.
The truly dismaying thing is that anyone could contemplate electing such dumba$$ dopes to anything.
(1) It’s a poorly understood thing, this 3/5ths number. It was established by abolitionists who wanted to limit the voting power of slave-holding Southern Democrats, who were able to cast votes on behalf of the slaves they “owned.”
