The Ineffective Death Tax

As a life-long conservative (and former US Army Officer) I am very much in favor of the Estate Tax for purely political reasons. Once an estate reaches a certain size the generations of owners live very wealthy lives without ever have to earn a cent. By the 3rd generation, the born rich are totally divorced from what it takes to produce wealth. Call it guilt or whatever, many of these ignorant, hyper-rich develop very liberal political beliefs such as using other people's money to assuage their guilt and to prove their self worth as human beings. Vacuous as Paris Hilton or politically active liberals like most of the Kennedy and the Rockefeller clans, there are many notable examples of the born wealthy, divorced from reality, spouting inanities and other liberal mantras. With the near future seemingly likely to greatly extend human lives, we are in danger of becoming a massively stratified society where the elites live in the clouds and never have to find out what it means to get their hands dirty.

Germany deserved to be punished? Revisionist nonsense. Germany was no more, or less, responsible for WWI than any of the other "Great Powers".

"stampeded" ? The Senate backed regime change prior to 9/11. No one ever claimed Saddam had anything to do with 9/11 or with the anthrax scare. The fact that he had and used WMD has been well established. Once again Pat Buchanan rants his hysterical nonsense.
Last chance before catastrophe? Didn't AL "made millions off green scams while living the life of a massive polluter" Gore say we had to act within 2 years to stop catastrophe? That was 12 years ago. Catastrophe hasn't happened yet. The truth is various "scientist" have been warning of imminent catastrophe since I was a kid in the '60s. Back then it was Silent Spring about exaggerated pollution dangers, Global Cooling and The Population Bomb. Oops, western countries are not even reproducing their own numbers much less over populating the world. As third world countries become wealthier, there is every reason to believe they will also naturally control their population numbers. Lest we think this shrill alarmist rhetoric is a modern phenomena, back in the middle ages, numerologists predicted the end of the world in the year 1000. We will always have Chicken Little's running around crying that the sky is falling. The trick is never let them get access to your wallet.
Of course they have to pass it in order to find out whats in it. Thank you Madam Pelosi.
Kerry betrayed American servicemen when he spouted his lies to Congress in order to propel him into power. His character has not changed since. I likewise had no hopes of him ever becoming anything other than a waste of human flesh.
This article is a childish attempt to challenge evolution. I read Townhall articles for their intelligent response to the MSM, but this article makes conservatives look like knuckle dragging apes. Do yourselves a favor Townhall and put Frank Pastore out to pasture.
Although Oblamer richly deserves impeachment for numerous crimes, politically it will never fly. He will not be impeached for the same reason he was elected. He is the first black president (tata bill c.). The dims scream that any criticism of him is racism. If the House was to impeach him, the dims will be screaming racism for another generation. Besides, the Senate will NEVER convict. SO... calling for impeachment is self-defeating. It's right... but it is not going to happen and it is self defeating.
Valerie Plame was not a CIA operative. She had long since been in a non-covered status when her husband attempted to use their relationship to slander George W. Bush.
