That is just the most recent country to crumble into poverty and lawlessness due to socialism. There are plenty of others. The thing about those countries, including Venezuela is that the political leaders and people who are already rich are not eating out of the garbage or killing dogs, cats, and rats in the streets.

Pick the one socialist country that is doing poorly. Don't look at the reasons it is doing poorly. Assume that socialism is why. Great argument, *Slow clap*

If I had a dollar for every time trickle down economics worked every banker and insurance executive would have all the money and use it to buy tax policy like they did this week and wages would be flat over the last 40 years while corporate profits soared to record levels. Oh wait. That IS what happened.

Trump was already a billionaire, he inherited a lot of money, and provided goods and services and invested to earn the rest. How exactly does your meme apply to this thread?
reply
4 ups, 1 reply
Perhaps you should look into trumps tax scams over the last 30 years. NY'rs know all about his sleazy business dealings. How about suing the bank so he could get out of payments because 'the market crashed and it was not his fault'... look it up.

Is the gop tax plan automatically bad because scumbag Trump is president? That's called a genetic fallacy and it doesn't hold water. Explain to me how Trump being a scumbag, liar, and thief (allegedly) takes money away from me even though I get to keep more of the money I earn.

Unless you are making more than 250k a year, you will either pay more in taxes or lose services. So you can give more money to those making more than you.

Nobody ever got a job from a poor person, but these liberal ass hats keep demonizing the wealthy and have NO IDEA how economics works. They just keep parroting "trickle down" because some millionaire talking head on MS-NBC told the liberal lemmings to say that, as though it were a bad thing.

All of capitalism is trickle down, it always has been and always shall be. And all the wealth in the world was created that way. But try telling that to some idiot that listens to Rachel Maddow.

I say a great deal more than that, but all that sticks in your insect brain is "liberalism is a mental disease". And since it is effective, one of the few things that has any chance of registering in your insect brain, I will continue to say it again and again and again.

Let's make this easy, shall we?
1. I have the brain of a human, because I am a human
2. I point out your habit of mindlessly repeating the same thing over and over, and your super intelligent response is to repeat it yet again, thereby completely missing the point
3. The only things you say other than that are more pathetic insults; nothing productive, ever
4. It's actually not effective. Insulting someone repeatedly, and using the SAME insult to boot, is not effective. It only makes you look mentally challenged.
5. I expect you to keep saying it, because you have nothing worthwhile to say, so tired insults will suffice.

Happy holidays! :D

I actually did go and upvote a bunch of your comments, but since ninja2016 offed himself I guess not much harm came of it? Huh. ninja2016 was one of the first right-wing a$$holes I came into contact when I joined. Had quite a few dust-ups with him, then I just came to ignore him. It was easy to do so since, as this comment stream proved, he had no content to his arguments. He either fell on his own sword or got kicked off finally. Either way he's likely to be back. Probably be easy to detect since stupid is as stupid does; he'll 'argue' the same way, or just call himself ninja2017. XD

Okay, ass hat. Let's try it your way and see you fall on your face once again. Because if you didn't have a tiny insect brain, you would remember going down this road before, quite often in fact.

Answer this simple question: Why is it greedy for me to keep my own money, but not greedy for you to want to take my money and redistribute it to someone else?

"Why is it greedy for me to keep my own money, but not greedy for you to want to take my money and redistribute it to someone else?"

I never said it was greedy of you to keep your own money. I believe that taxes should be collected so that things like police and fire services and the military can be funded, because these things protect everybody equally.

Do I believe that the means of production should be controlled by the government, like in a communist country? No.

Does that answer make sense to you?

You aren't getting tax breaks. The only people getting tax breaks already have more than enough money. Otherwise taxes are going up for people like you and me, making your whole point extremely moot.

VOX lol!

You can call it a genetic fallacy, if you even know what that means. But I don't read partisan propaganda. Do you read articles by FOX? Neither do I.

Even if I granted the position that the article takes (I presume): that Venezuela's decline into forcing it's people into eating garbage is the fault of the current and previous leadership and *not* the political philosophy at work, I don't trust the politicians in my country to bring about any other outcome if free markets and individualism fail to remain the deciding factor (i.e. free market capitalism.)
