It's an emergency, quick, tax the rich


As part of the global push to tax the rich, Britain is now debating an “emergency” wealth tax. But the idea has hit fierce opposition from conservatives, who say the “politics of envy” hasn’t made the country rich.

Deputy Prime , leader of the Liberal-Democrat Party, has proposed a one-time tax on the wealth (rather than the incomes) of high-net-worth Britons. The details aren’t clear, but Clegg says the country is facing an economic war caused by a prolonged recession, and needs to tax the rich in order to avoid social unrest. More here:

LMAO @ politicians.  All they EVER think about is how to get more money.  More money ... so they can squander it by giving it to their buddies or buying votes.  And no matter how much they take or borrow or spend or put you in debt ... it's never enough, is it?  Think about it.

And taxing the rich is good thinking too ... pure genius ... no doubt a brain-nugget of our intellectual betters.

We can trust the rich (corporations) to just take the loss without a whimper   I mean ... they'd NEVER pass the increased costs along to the poor us in the form of higher prices ... right?  They'd NEVER do that, would they?

This, like all things "liberal," involves taking someone else's money/freedom.  Yes, they always have plans for other people but their plans never seem to expand freedom or liberty ... ever notice that?
