“Harming people in the name of helping them is one of mankind’s favourite pastimes”

I love this.

President-Elect Joe Biden delivered his first major national address since the Electoral Count was certified Thursday night; calling on “everyone at the top” to pay “their fair share” so we can rebuild and rescue the American economy. “What I just described does not come cheaply… We simply can’t not afford to not do what I’m proposing,” said Biden. “Even Wall Street firms have reinforced the logic. We must invest now, boldly, and smartly,” said Biden. “Asking everyone to pay their fair share at the top so we can make permanent investments to rescue and rebuild America is the right thing for our economy,” he added.”>thisthis:

President-Elect Joe Biden delivered his first major national address since the Electoral Count was certified Thursday night; calling on “everyone at the top” to pay “their fair share” so we can rebuild and rescue the American economy.

“What I just described does not come cheaply… We simply can’t not afford to not do what I’m proposing,” said Biden. “Even Wall Street firms have reinforced the logic. We must invest now, boldly, and smartly,” said Biden.

“Asking everyone to pay their fair share at the top so we can make permanent investments to rescue and rebuild America is the right thing for our economy,” he added.

A Keynesian solution to a bloated government. Pure genius.

And don’t worry, Mitch, it won’t last, but in the meantime: Poll: 91% of GOP voters still with Trump … McConnell worried?. The Republicrats will fix it, but until then:

A poll taken after the Capitol Hill rioting that Democrats blame on President Donald Trump reveals that more than nine out of 10 of his supporters would still vote for him – results that could spell disaster for Republicans such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who have supported efforts to impeach the president.

The favorable Trump numbers relayed in a Washington Examiner report revealed the findings of pollster Frank Luntz – numbers that reportedly should have many Republicans who sided with the Democrats very concerned.

“Despite their criticism of his conduct since November 3rd and last week, 91% of Trump voters say they’d still vote for him if another presidential election were held today,” Luntz tweeted Monday.

Will also add this: POLL: Few blame Trump for Capitol riots. But all the media, all of the leaders of the Senate and House on both sides, and the President-elect and the V-P elect do, so what does a poll result have to do with anything? The minions on the left never debate among themselves, they just listen for instructions and then immediately sign on. Whatever the mantra of the moment, that is what they will say and think.

    Encouraging poll about the blame for the riots. The MSM and Democrat line is so obviously bullshit, but it is easy to see that people who support law and order rather than reflexively taking their own side might, given the saturation of misinformation, been persuaded that Trump was somehow responsible.

    I think that, as the Biden/Harris Presidency continues to unfold in the disastrous way their stupidity and corruption ordains, the ones who assign blame to Trump or his supporters at all will revise their opinion.

    The Konstantin Chernenko of US politics.

    We are one stumble and fall away from the glorious dictatorship of the Harris vagocracy with AOC as the digital Lavrentiy Beria of the new century.

    And ‘fair share’?

    This childish formulation you would expect to hear on a school playground is deployed to appeal to the low information voter. Gillard used to use it, and now we have Biden.

    No one can object to ‘fair’. But what does it denote? In the school yard it means that everyone gets an equal portion. But even in the school yard no one is expected to dole out a bag of Minties they bought with their own money.

    But what has Joe in mind? Well, as a lefty he thinks that a person who has earned a lot of money ‘owes’ it to people who have not. And the government will take it and spend it on the ‘have nots’ on their behalf.

    Bill Gates, for example, is a deeply flawed human. But his right to the money he has earned with his software cannot be gainsaid. He produced a product that tens of millions of people wanted at a price lower than the value of the product to them (they would not buy it if it was worth less to them than the price and, in the improbable case of the price and value being equal they would be as inclined to not purchase as to purchase).

    So he enriched all those people providing something more valuable than the cost and made money himself. He also created jobs and helped grow the economy. His software also created its own impetus where use of it by ordinary people revealed new possibilities in software that could be provided. (It is his politicking where he falls down.)

    But Joe thinks that is not fair. It is not giving enough.

    I wonder if the new imposts Joe is thinking of are applicable to cash in brown paper bags and the financial value of cocaine and Chinese hookers?

    “We simply can’t not afford to not do what I’m proposing,” said Biden

    Err what? Let’s “unpack” that.

    “We simply cannot not afford to not do what I’m proposing,” Remove the two redundant (and contradictory) “nots” and the idiocy then becomes:

    “We simply cannot afford to do what I’m proposing”.

    So the foul ol’ syphlitic geriatric speaks the truth, just as he did when describing the dumbocrats development of the most comprehensive voter fraud organisation in the history of American politics, which has just gifted those vile corrupt criminals the last election.

    What a joke.

    And ‘fair share’?
    Thanks for your comments. Two points I’d like to add: 1) Gates is reported to have effectively stolen DOS which became the forerunner to Windows (lots of history on that), and 2) Don’t expect Gates and the Oligarchs to be caught in this new tax bite, their foundations are tax free. So who gets caught? Well just like here the PAYG high earner who really should think about setting up a foundation. Thatcher once said in words to the effect “socialism is great until you run out of other people’s money”.

  7. SIMON NICHOLAS MORGAN says:

    About time Hollywood stars, particularly de Niro, Baldwin and Penn, took on the heavy-lifting as far as tax revenues are concerned.

    They don’t need that extra luxury water-front property, not when there’s starving Guatemalans pounding the pavements of LA, SFO, Seattle & Portland, do they?

    Thou shalt not steal, except by majority vote

    “Envy is spoken of in strong language in scripture as a great evil. But envy has been institutionalized now.
    Helmut Schoeck, a sociologist in a book published in 1970 entitled simply Envy, pointed out how the politics of the modern world which is destroying our civilization is the politics of envy. We are teaching people to envy anyone who is more successful, not to work, not to emulate, but to envy. And so envy has become the instrument of confiscation, of trying to gain what one does not rightly have.

    Now envy is a product of inferiority, people resenting those that are better than themselves.
    The sad fact is that democracy fosters envy, because democracy on the one hand tells everyone that they are equal and the facts of life then deny their equality.
    Envy then operates using the democratic structure to strike at others. But we have to say that envy is more than equalitarian. Envy always grasps at privilege, because it equates life with privilege. It seeks privilege for itself, but resents privilege in anyone else.
    Envy, as a result, is very, very destructive socially. It is death to any society. But envy has been politicized in our day and is at the heart of political life.”

    That article is very sobering. If not outright depressing.

    Indeed, Dianeh.

    Otoh, it will favour conservative Republicans at the mid-terms and POTUIS 2024.

    McConnel should be worried! Project Veritas has just released documents pertaining to his CCP connections through his (Chinese) wife and her father. Seems they are all linked, financially, via a shipbuilding entity all funded by CCP!

    calling on “everyone at the top” to pay “their fair share”

    Dear Mr President-Elect,

    Can you please explain how you will define “fair”?

    Will everyone pay the same dollar amount of tax? Or will everyone pay the same percentage of their income?
    What will your definition include in the term, “income”?
    However, you said “those at the top” as if those not at the top were already “paying their fair share.” Whom do you include in that grouping “at the top”?

    Concerned citizens want to know…
    Asking for a friend…

  15. Mother Lode says:

    Honestly, is it possible to imagine a more infantile and woeful campaign slogan than ‘Build Back Better’.

    Grammatically inept, all it has going for it is alliteration. Probably helps Joe.

    And while Make America Great Again can be reduced to the acronym ‘MAGA’, ‘BBB’ sounds like the noises babies make with much spraying of saliva when lying in their crib.

  16. Kneel says:

    ” Gates is reported to have effectively stolen DOS “

    Nope.
    He paid $50k for it, and the seller remains happy with the deal.

  17. Gregg says:

    I hope blind hatred for a single guy was worth allowing a new crew to destroy our freedoms and go in a direction no American will like. Except the top Elite, which will be small and many who think they are safe, won’t be. Why did it turn into a war of personalities instead of policies? So many are scared and don’t no what to do.
