Leftist Greed

Post by DBTrek » Thu Jul 22, 2021 8:06 am

Oregon Congressman Proposes SPACE Tax to Penalize Billionaires Who Pay to Go to Space

:doh:

... as if no taxes were paid in the hiring and employment of workers, gathering of materials, conforming to existing regulations, obtaining of fuel, etc, etc.

I swear, it seems like leftists just sit around wallowing in pools of envy and desperately searching for new things tax. If Jeff and Richard both owned poodles they'd probably be exploring a poodle tax. Sad.

I mean…. They did invent new ways to go to space. Hard to argue that ‘nothing of value’ was produced…
SJWs are a natural consequence of corporatism.

putting aside the virtue signalling to the leftist religion, taxes are at historic lows

in the 1980's the top marginal tax rate was 70%, now it's 33%, and that's in "Socialist" Canada

the truth is that they don't raise taxes, they just fund everything with debt

the virtue signalling is totally detached from the reality

Even if nothing of value was produced - is that a justification for taxation?
I mean, consider everything you do every day that produces no value ... be kinda hard to argue that you owe the government money for every non-productive activity you engage in.

even putting aside the Laffer curve diminishing returns barring taxing their way out of the debt crisis

the ponzi scheme neoliberal economy could not survive spiralling tax increases, that will implode it

so from a low tax point of view, we've actually got the leftists by the balls

they can't both raise taxes and prop the "progressive" establishment up, it's one or the other

thus I am generally optimistic about taxes, they are too deep into this trap to tax their way out of it now

the actual fiscal gap in America, total outlays vs total returns, is $160 trillion

taxation isn't going to make the slightest dent in the massive debt crisis on the horizon

Also hard to raise interest rates when you're holding more than a year's worth of GDP in debt.
Like ... you have no prayer of paying that shit back now, how you gonna pay it back with even higher interest?
:lol:

But dammit - rich people have money and shit.
TAX THEM!
WAHHHHHHH!!!!

So tiresome.
I just wish they'd go as hard at unemployed and underperforming people as they do at billionaires.
People having "too much" is a problem, but tens of millions of others doing "too little", or nothing at all, isn't?

Get outta here with that shit.
pfffffft

it's all going to implode into a black hole long before the tax rates become intolerable

taxes are not going to be the problem so much as the total collapse of civil order

Well, maybe they can just legislate some "Disorder Free" zones, or better yet, come up with a scheme to tax chaos. That seems to be the modus operandi of these folks. Tyranny or taxation - their two main tools - aside from the hammer and sickle of course.

I don't think they actually have a modus operandi

the Neoliberal fantasy has come a cropper, and now they are thrashing about in a panic

it's a Ponzi scheme, it's running out of runway, there's nothing they can do about it

the totalitarian crackdown's in progress are the indication that the elites are aware of the pending implosion
