tax of the “Super-Rich” is just plain stupid. And it avoids the important questions. Not only does it make no economic sense, but it just doesn’t work mathematically. But it makes good quips for a self-proclaimed “populist.” Empty quips, and ultimately utterly unsatisfying to the thinking crowd, but good for the masses. And it provides some sort of absolution to Buffett, at no actual cost to himself. Talk about cheap grace! This is grace at bargain-basement prices.
But like many commentators, I wonder why, if Buffett is so whacked out about the super rich not paying enough in taxes, he doesn’t just write a check to the IRS. He certainly could. I mean the guy is worth somwhere north of 30 billion. I bet he could write a check for on 5 billion to the gov’t. Yeah, I thought so. Just another hypocrite who is Jonesing for your money. If Buffett were a man of principle rather than a man of mere hot air, he would write a dang check! I just want to say, “Shut up and put your money where your flapping gums are!”
But no, he’s just another “celebritard.” Same goes for the myriad of empty-headed Hollywood turds. Shut up and sing, already! I like my paid monkeys mute. They are, after all, just paid monkeys.
