My Comments of the Day: undermining government, tax blackmail, fact v opinion

By Olivia LaRosa, April 23, 2013

Q: Do you approve or disapprove of Bush’s handling of the economy?

It’s WAY worse than no one minding the store…it’s agency capture by the industries they are supposed to be regulating. Reagan, Bush 1, and Bush 2 all put agency heads and employees into our government whose sole mission was to destroy the effectiveness of the agency. Remember, for example, how Regent University law school graduates were purposely placed in the Department of Justice because of their ideological views? Regent University is a right-wing “religious” institution with the unstated mission of enabling capitalists to steal more from the public purse.

Tax havens unfair to small businesses

So, am I to gather from your comment that you support multinational companies’ attempts to blackmail the American people with this “tax holiday” nonsense? $300 Billion is really small potatoes compared to the estimated amounts in tax havens that run over $20 TRILLION dollars.

Sure, you have the tax rates on the books, but the big players cook their books so they get CREDITS, such as the multibillion dollar credits that GE has raked in from ME over the last several years.

George W. Bush, Eternally Serene

Here’s how I decide who to engage in conversation. I ask them to define these words: fact, and opinion.

If they get the answers right, I am inclined to continue. If they do not, well, there’s no point in having a chat because WORDS MEAN SOMETHING.
