We could call liberals hypocrites but that would only be an understatement. Stephen King is your typical liberal and typical hypocrite.
In an obscenity laced and poorly written tirade in the Daily Beast, he is whining that he is not paying more taxes.
Conservatives point out that the members of the ultra rich left, like Stephen King can pay more taxes if they want. Oh, they hate that point.
Too bad. The truth hurts, sort of like having a massive tub of pig blood dropped on you. Perhaps Stephen King should work on his next bad novel instead of telling us how to run America.
Perhaps Stephen King would like to sponsor the next GSA convention in Las Vegas. He could even bring in Columbian prostitutes for the GSA and it would not even have to be on the taxpayer’s dime.
As with almost everything that comes from the left, what King says is a lie. Higher tax rates are not about higher taxes. History has proven repeatedly that if you cut taxes, you spur economic growth and more revenue comes into the Treasury.
Higher tax rates are about the rich pulling the ladder up after them and not letting anyone else join the club. Stephen King does not have to worry about his wealth. He has already made it.
The guy he has to worry about is the next struggling writer who will write the blockbuster that will push his book off of the bestseller list. He is worried about the next novelist who will become super rich. When you tax income at confiscatory rates, people are not able to accrue wealth the way Stephen King has.
It would be great to see Stephen King’s tax returns. I’m willing to go out on a limb and make a few guesses. I bet he has a legion of accountants who work on his taxes and I bet they do everything in their power to minimize his tax liability. I’m willing to bet he deducted everything he could to reduce his taxable income. I’m also willing to bet he would not release his tax return because it would show that.
In other words, Stephen King does not care what the tax rate is. He really cares about how much he really pays.
Honestly I am tired of liberal hacks like him.
There are hundreds of billions of dollars in identified waste in government spending. Why the hell should I, or anyone else, rich or poor pay another dime in taxes while that kind of waste is going on?
The GSA can blow a million dollars on a massive party in Las Vegas. Why the hell should I or any other taxpayer have to pay for that?
Here is a message for Stephen King. If you want to pay more in taxes, move to California. California’s taxes are almost at the confiscatory rates that you desire. Move there.
If you really believe what you say, write the government a check. Give the government all of your money. That might pay for another Obama vacation.
But let’s remember one thing. Your ideas have been wrong every time they have been tried. I wouldn’t listen to a doctor or a lawyer who was wrong every time so why should anyone listen to a hack writer who is consistently wrong.
Amen, Judson! And doesn't it drive you crazy that they keep pushing these lies even AFTER you have proven to their faces how wrong they are?
Wasn't it Voltaire who said, "Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities"???
Socialism, Communism, Nazism and Fascism all have lead to a common fate . . . . . millions and millions of innocent deaths, decimated national economies, plus decades and decades in Gulag-style Indoctrination and Re-Education camps.
Will the Left ever learn this one . . . . simple . . . . FACT? Surely, Mr. King's research has uncovered the FACTS!
Hollywood elites stick together . . . . only a few display good-old-American Common Sense and Patriotism and do so at the risk of their careers - - they prove their Patriotism by their actions.
All of Hollywood are traitors to our country,that being said,why do so many people read his books or follow these goons? I don't read books out of hollywood,or watch any TV program out of there.
Is everyone in Hollywood liberal? Was John Wayne a liberal? I hope not, but really don't know.
I didn't know he was balding either.
On the lighter side: Good ole John Wayne:
Obama threats when he wasn't getting to raising the debt ceiling?
Threats: (1) not pay: Social Security Retirees, (2) Military Retirees, (3) Social Security disability, and (4) Federal Retirees. BUT…
He did not threaten
to stop payments to illegal aliens
to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates
to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired
to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting around the world
to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff
to take benefits away from welfare recipients
threaten the food stamp programs
threaten to not pay foreign aid
threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters
The list could go on and on. He is in full political re-election mode! (Liberal Arseholler Mode)
Why are we allowing this person to destroy this wonderful country with his selfishness and his lies?
His type of change is killing our country. He needs to be stopped and only our votes can stop him.
Do not forget about his tactics when it's election time.
Vote Obama out of the Presidency in 2012.
Hold your nose if you may, vote GOP Romney, and RUBIO is not Natural Born so skip that win'nier!
LOL....this election is more to 'vote against' someone the proverbial 'lesser of two evils(smacked-asses)' than ANY other election, Ya know, Billy!
Dear Judson, since I didn't see another name, I assume you wrote this. I agree with everything you say, as I usually do, but I take issue with your denegration of King's talent. I have always respected you, because you write well and state the facts, but I can't remember you making personal attacks on people - that is beneath you. I don't buy King's books, but I've read several and they were excellent, if you like that genre. There's a reason he has all that money you speak of, and it's because he's a good writer. If he wasn't, he'd be poor. In the future, please stick to the facts - like what he did wrong - and don't attack the person or his work. Sincerely, Ronald DuBois Bogota, NJ
King is a liberal. That says it all.
I take it you don't like Stephen King. :)
I see liberal people all around me. My "I don't like" list is getting longer and longer.
Hey, I think they are taking over. Conversations are easier on the topic of Christianity now instead of politics.
I never though about it until now, but maybe thats why so many blog on this site. It's nice to talk with people of like mindedness.
