Listen up Comrade Quebec, the cold war is over and you lost. You can smugly post the latest anti-capitalism drivel from your sophomore poli-sci class professor, but the gig is up, and I’m calling you out.
15 yards, personal foul, repeat first down.
That’s right, the Berlin wall was torn down and it’s time someone tore down the socialistic propaganda you keep spewing on these forums. Sorry pinko, but the buck stops here. If there is one thing I can’t stand, it’s a stinking communist. I’ve let this go on for long enough. It’s time someone rolled up their sleeves and took out the trash. So gather around folks, we’re gonna have a good old fashion hippie bashing.
I hate to get into the nitty gritty with you, after all, maaaaaan, I’m sure you just want to talk about ideas, maaaaaaaan, like what life would be like if we weren’t slaves to the dollar, maaaaaaaaan, but if you want to talk economics, you have to talk numbers.
So, what did you want to propose? Banks and corporations should pay their fair share, 10 times their current taxes to contribute to society? Let’s just do a little arithmetic here my chai tea drinking socialist. Let’s say corporations pay taxes in the United States at 40% of their taxable income. You would like to increase this tax rate by ten times? Let’s see…using my fingers and toes…that comes out to income taxes payable of 4 times their taxable income!
Wow, comrade, even a co-op shopping hippie like you should see that idea not working. I think that patchouli smell must have some second hand effects. Can you imagine the interest rates banks would have to charge? Or the lay offs that corporations would face before eventually going out of business? But then again, for a communist like yourself, I’m sure you would enjoy seeing long lines of unemployment, it would remind you of the good old days in the motherland. Brrrrrr, lines.
Quick, search www.communistcomeback.edu to spin this one comrade, but it won’t work. You can regurgitate all the party line propaganda you want, hell quote me rage against the machine lyrics for all I care, but the fact is, my background is in business economics and your background is in conspiracy theory communist drivel.
Not on my watch pinko, not on my watch.
