Except it did save jobs?
But that wasn't his point... or mine.
So... if " When tax rates were higher, people just behaved differently in order to avoid paying taxes at a higher rate.", then why are Conservatives so absolutely bent on not raising tax rates on the ultra rich?? What a weird argument, supposedly backed up by a chart that shows...nothing. If tax rates don't matter, then great, why not let Liberals raise the tax rates on the wealthy? But don't pretend like we live in a flat tax country, where all that matters is average tax income per household. That totally sidesteps the fact that different incomes have different tax rates, and there is a large debate about how those tax rates should be arranged. Mushing taxes together into an average household tax income totally ignores the income gap

You are of course referring to when Tina Fey simply read back VERBATIM the ridiculous interview Palin did with Katie Curic? That kind of smearing from the left?

Sowell never uses any facts to back up his fascist claim, so when you say "Truth always trumps Godwin’s Law" you re going t have to do a much beter job of explaining how "Obama is a fascist" is truth. It's false, of course.

Noting that corporate profits have skyrocketed under Obama is hardly being "against corporate profit". Indeed the point is that profits have INCREASED under Obama!!! How is that against??? Oh yeah, just another Right Wing talking point/myth

And we are perfectly free as a society to NOT dole out charity to the uber wealthy at the expense of the poor. We are perfectly free as individuals and a society to choose to support government programs that are NOT oppressive to the poor, but rather which seek to assist them.

You have that luxury because you live in a time AFTER the government and unions took action to improve the living and working conditions of average Americans to a level that was above appalling and incredibly dangerous. If you did live in the laissez-faire, de-regulated, ununionized times that Conservatives seem to idealize, you certainly would not be singing the praises of business. You would be too busy working 12 hours a day in a disease infested slaughterhouse, while your children were working in the factory because wages barely paid for food. Then you go home to your hell hole of a tenament, stepping over the urine, feces and garbage at your door, and cram your entire family in to one room, hoping not to get cholera or typhoid. Enjoy!

A marxist socialist? Wow! Prejudiced against his own mother (not just all white people)? Wow! You really make smart, well thought out points! By the way, just because Hitler's party had the word "Socialist" in it doesn't mean he ran a socialist government. He was a Fascist, plain and simple. Nice stab at trying to act smart about history
