    That's part of my problem with Libbos. They preach equality, then put conditions on that equality. Just like they preach and demand diversity, then put restrictions on what that is. Everything is conditional with a Liberal.

    There isn't any evidence that lower taxes for the rich means more economic growth. The tax rate on the rich peaked in the '50s and '60s, which were also the decades in which the nation enjoyed its most rapid growth and widely shared prosperity. Tax rates on the rich were lowest in the '80s, which also happened to be the slowest decade of growth in the postwar era. President Clinton raised taxes on the rich in 1993, and through the rest of the decade the economy saw its best period of growth since the '60s.

    But they have a different idea of what equality is. Everyone I think supports equality at some level.

    Do you want the government to treat people equally, or do you want people to be equal? Currently the best thing you can do to be a huge success is to be born to the right people. Inherit millions and you're guaranteed to become a millionaire! Personally, I'd like to have a system where everyone has the same chance to succeed. So I support things like a high inheritance tax and higher taxes on investment income than on wages. I can claim I'm for equality as much as anyone else. We just have different opinions on what equality really is.

    Alright, I'll take a shot:

    I'm a billionaire hot-shot lawyer who spends all my time blowing lines off of Natalie Portman's ass and calling people "boo" because it indicates that I'm condescending AND in touch with black culture.


    Was that pretty good? I wasn't sure whether to pretend I dabble in llello or to go the more traditional "drink 30 year Macallan out of Greta Van Susteren's asshole" route. I ended up just flipping a coin.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
