Liberals And Their Eat The Rich Mindset
I find this to be a common theme among celebrities where they will complain about wealthy people not doing enough...until it comes to their OWN personal sacrifice. Suddenly when personal sacrifice becomes the word of the day, mum's the word. How is it that I have this gut feeling that every single celebrity that talks about people paying their fair share still itemizes their deductions on their taxes? How is it that I know that every one of them squeezes that lemon until they get every legal deduction they (or their tax advisors) can find?
Jello Biafra lives in a house worth 1.8 MILLION dollars (approximate - based on comparable sales). OK - no matter how you slice it, he's in a nice neighborhood and has a lot of money. This same man complains about the rich people trying to screw the poor people. He complains about financial abuses of corporations. Interestingly, his own company, Alternative Tentacles, recently lost a lawsuit over allegations of unfair dealings and doing what I consider to be...ta-daaaaa...screwing the poor people.
So - do the wealthy owe the poor anything? Are the wealthy evil? Do they prey on the needy? Do they cheat people left and right.
I guess if you look in the backyard of liberalism, yes...that is precisely what the wealthy do.
Liberals need to get a clue. I don't owe strangers anything. A fair share doesn't increase in size when you make more money. Taxes do NOT need to be increased. Spending needs to be cut. I will give to the needy when I choose.
