CT Dem sponsors “hoarder’s tax”. “Rep. Betsy Ritter, a Waterford Democrat… has also proposed a hoarder’s tax. This would place a levy on liquid assets – companies with a lot of money in the bank – and dedicate the proceeds to job creation programs.” When is there going to be a “stupid legislation” tax?

HA! I knew it! I have been saying that the idiots didn’t grasp that income tax does not apply to the cash and holdings already owned. I knew as soon as that clicked, they would be after the principle and here we go! I’m telling you, fire ’em all and start over. I am not much of a revolutionary, and even I am ready to take up arms! They are destroying the US and everything we have traditionally stood for.

Shut up creep. I knew that when your idol was still in school in the wastelands of East Texas. SOME of us have a brain and can think for ourselves. Of course, you would not understand that, lacking said brain.

You and Ron are both past history, really Creepy Crowley, no one here gives a shit about your wrinkled old white guy fetish and your opinion, which by the way consists of two stupid and repetitive phrases. Ron Paul won’t even be a footnote in history, as for you, well I am still hoping you consume feces and expire, have you given any thought to watching “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo?” I mean that family is what I picture yours to be like and I bet you have a lot in common, plus when they run marathons of that trailer park trash it would keep you and your two idiot phrases off this site. Again, consume feces and expire dickwad.

A TV series is in order. Let it be called “Corporate Preppers”. The first episode could be about a group of CEO’s afraid of socialism.

It is truly amazing how libtards recycle crap. President Roosevelt enacted an undistributed profits tax in 1936 with a top rate of 60 percent. FDR seemed intent on prolonging the pain and misery of the Great Depression and this tax (along with all his other tax hikes) worked quite well.

But you only judge libtards by their intentions, not the results.

There’s a reason it was the “Great Depression” only in the US…

I’m sure this is going to do CT’s unemployment rate a world of good. So what’s next, raiding people saving accounts?

“The Obama administration appears to be proceeding with a novel way of financing trillion-dollar budget deficits by forcing IRA and 401(k) holders to buy Treasury bonds by mandating the placement of government-structured annuities in their investment accounts.”

I’d close my accounts and take the penalty first. You only lose 20%, vs what the crash would do to it.
Then I’d put the money in something they can’t touch, like a mayonnaise jar in my back yard.

Maybe it is time for a “whore tax” on liberals for selling themselves out and trying to take our cash and run while leaving us unfulfilled….

The governments (Federal, State, County, City) and many of the voters who elect these idiots are getting so stupid I’m being convinced that a continental Darwin award is about to happen.

Is there a democrat politician on the planet that has ever run a business? Make that a successful business without government grants and bailouts. This dumb ass couldn’t run a pay shithouse. But people vote for her, so who really are the dumbasses?

So the next move will be to place the funds in the Caman Islands like der leader and the wookie. These dim wits just don’t get it, you can’t tax your way to prosperity. All they will do is make everyone poor. Dumbasses. So let her gets this stupid legislation through and then get it signed, then watch how many businesses flee.

Betsy Ritter is a communist. You can find the sh!t she’s calling for in “The Communist Manifesto”.

You are right, being correct is not an excuse, but it reason enough for me, & I really don’t care when the PC types object. I never have, & I’m not starting now. If the truth is on my side, I don’t back off.

That just pisses them right the hell off, doesn’t it? I love when they say, “Yeah, but your source is a right wing lunatic site.” I admit that fact, then ask them if the information is untrue.

Until owning too much gold and silver becomes illegal, too. Franklin D. Roosevelt made it illegal to own all but very small amounts of gold with Executive Order 6102 (this was repealed by Gerald Ford in 1974).
