Let me guess, she's talking about all the moral and ethical issues of the Justices in recent times? Remind me again how the Justices get their jobs?

She really is MTG level stupid.   And Raskin smiles like he can’t believe some hot chick is standing that close to him no matter how stupid she sounds    lol 

 

 

She's not stupid and she's not wrong. 

 

If any two people sound cut from the same cloth in this recent development, it's ideological dips#!t Marjorie Taylor Green and hugely influential Supreme Court Justice Sam Alito. Thus making AOC's point. 

 

And yes, she's hot Archy. But you need to respect her for her mind, too.

Well once again you leave off the reason why, as I just multiple times now it’s not being rich in and of itself.   At least get that right :facepalm: then we could discuss the merits of my actual opinion.   

I've addressed it in multiple posts now. It's not my fault if you don't understand it or failed to read my post.

Yes, we know how the tax system works.   Certainly doesn’t change the fact that if you think someone wouldn’t feel a bit hosed by paying 50-60% of earned income in taxes and still have people like you clamoring to take more of it,

I've addressed this as well. I'm sure there are irrational people that don't understand the math or don't understand that they are taking home way more money or are just plain greedy and always want more, but you've dropped the word "rational" which you used originally. Rational people understand why they have a good deal and are not getting hosed.

 the question is still why won’t you donate half your income and see how much you enjoy it.  Everyone loves to take others money, up and until it becomes your money they take. 

I addressed this as a ridiculous question and posed a better question that you failed to address.

 

But I'll indulge you and dig into this further. I would happily get taxed more if I also earned more. I'm completely in favor of it. I favor higher tax rates on those that can most afford it and lower tax rates on those least able to do so. And that includes my own earnings, which are higher than the median and at higher tax brackets. I don't think we should bump up tax rates for no reason, but I strongly favor bumping up higher earners tax rates for either paying down the national debt or reducing the tax rates on the lowest earners.

 

And because of the way progressive tax brackets work, I as a higher earner actually pay the same amount of tax on my lowest earnings - the same as everyone else. The higher taxes are only on the highest earnings, which you say everyone understands, but you keep ignoring that since it means everyone is paying the same tax rate. The only difference is the earning levels.

Yikes.  I mean, compared to other people in the government I guess, but, that is easy comps.

To the bolded, I actually don’t.   That would be like respecting a porn star for her acting chops :lol:

 

to the first part, her and her squad partners are equally as stupid as MTG and the Boebart’s.  Congress will be better  if/when they are all replaced.

On one hand you've got folks with actual doctorates, people who graduated cum laude and had all kinds of fellowships.

 

On the other, you have a high school dropout who just got a GED certificate in 2020 and worked as a McDonald's assistant manager and a file clerk along with a business major undergrad from Georgia with no educational or intellectual achievements of any kind.

 

Back on the first hand you've got plenty of hot takes and unapologetically leftist ideas that are quite unpopular with some but are nonetheless informed by actual developed political and economic theory. Extreme, but not uneducated.

 

To be fair though, on the other hand, you've got claims that elementary school kids won't get killed if they're armed with assaut weapons, that jewish space lasers caused wildfires, that Ilhan Omar is a terrorist, Obama is a muslim, and that most of our government officials are actively worshiping Satan.

 

 

So yeah, seems like an even matchup.

In a world where John Stoessel knows more about econ than Elizabeth Warren, and Marjorie Taylor Greene is just as smart as AOC, any idiot gets to be king.

Ehhhhh, slippery slope when you just assume people with a lot of formal education are the smartest.

 

I am willing to bet I have more formal education than just about everyone that posts here.  A lot more.

 

And face it...no one is confusing me for being the smartest poster.  

 

In fact when we do have posts about my field of "expertise" most posters assume they know more and even think people with ZERO formal education in my field and zero experience in my field should have a say and know more.

 

I mean, that only works when you are talking about the fire department.

Yeah good point.   Or she didn’t know she would get her upper body stuck in the cabinet under the sink?

You actually think the morons that make up the Squad have intelligence that translates to being good at their job!?!?!??   Ooooppffhhhh.  Guess I didn’t think it was that hard or a stretch at all to call out their ridiculous moronic political chops but here we are.  

 

Speaking of McDonalds assistant managers….wasn’t AOC a bartender before being elected?  

 

I am hoping we can agree that there are some extremely smart people or people who have degrees from what are considered top tier institutions that would have trouble making it out of an escape room (or generating non insane political ideas).

Extremely stupid, sure!   Again you equate book intelligence with common sense intelligence of which they have very little.

Well, didn’t one of them try to or even accomplish marrying a brother?  And they totally love terrorists in the ME if they are targeting Jews, cry at the southern border along the fence as their border policy, worship at the alter of Jeremiah wright who again hates Jews, not to mention the insane policies those dumbasses come up with…..so yeah, they are equally stupid.   I’ll never understand why you support those clowns based on the above.   I have no problem calling out the Republican clowns like MTG, Boebart, Gaetz.   Come join the train…apparently there is more room on it than I thought there would be.
