With all the moving, we don’t want to forget the good folks over at Red Planet Cartoons. The latest RP theme is “The Prosperity Killers”.
[T]he Democratic presidential candidates are presenting economic plans that are chock-full of ideas that reduce economic growth, rather than expanding it.
Of course, they know that.
They’re also betting that they can hoodwink enough suckers to make it worth their political while. Rhetoric is the politician’s weapon of choice.
Whenever a politician starts talking about “socking it to the rich”, hold on to your wallet. One thing you’ll never hear at a Clinton or Obama rally is how the top 5% wealthiest Americans pay over 50% of the taxes.
That wouldn’t piss off any of their supporters.
It’s a whole lot easier to fire up the troops if they’re upset.
When Democrats talk about “soaking the rich”, it always seems that working stiffs are the ones who end up getting wet.
As usual, Red Planet has some great links to back up the cartoon at the top of the post.
“The Prosperity Killers” is just a reminder of the old saying: TANSTAAFL.
There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.
