I just know I’m going to Hell for publishing this. My only hope is that I can skate if I don’t identify this guy. So from here out we’ll just call him Steve.
Steve is a guy I met on another site; got into a discussion with; figured out that he was as deaf as a stone to what I was saying; and moved on. But Steve (that clever little scamp) followed me home like a Borellian Nomen on a “Blood Trail”
He took the tour and found my article on “The Effects of the Bush Tax Cuts”; and commented on it; sort of.
Anyway; I’ve never published anything just flor a laugh and I don’t mean to make fun of Steve; Really.
But the way this thread went and how it turns out at the end (so far) seemed so damned funny that I felt I had to share it with you.
Yes I turn out to be a smart ass again and yes I know your not supposed to laugh at your own jokes etc. but; well read on and see what I mean and if anybody wants to lay into me about what a conceited asshole I am; I won’t blame you and I promise not to argue. Unless that’s what you want…………………….

if tax increases stimulate the economy are good for us, why not just up the rate to 100% and bring on the good
times. we call all sit around eating bon bon’s, rainbow stew and free Bubble Up while we all wait for our government checks! That’s your Progressive problem, somebody has to keep working to provide the income for all you free loaders to steal. Once you remove all the incentives none of the workers will continue to be fleeced!

Seems pretty sad that a hard worker like yourself would just stop
playing if you don’t get to keep all the marbles. By taking away the incentive I assume you mean the right to hoard vast wealth while others suffer. The right to stand by and watch as your nation becomes the most war-mongering country in history. As our military invades and terrorises yet more nations unable to defend themselves from our “Help”. The right to drive multiple millions of Americans into ever deeper poverty so you can brag about what a sharp business man you are. And probably the right to shove your Right-Wing religion down our throat. Yeh; I guess that would tend to spoil all your fun; wouldn’t it?

so instead of just ranting about how un-American I am and continue to throw names at me that aren’t true why don’t you try intelligently discuss the issue and answer my question. Defend your indefensible position. If a little comfiscation is good, why not comfiscate it all and bring on your supposed utopia? you can’t defend it because eventually all the providers will quit because you’ve takebn away all the incentives to work hard and the results of helping the true needy, not this bunch of lazy lay on your back do nothings that want to keep their hand in my pocket instead of getting up off their asses and getting their own. Go ahead and defend it without name calling. You can’t, you’ll just continue to portray me as something I’m not to justify your own indefensible position as all you libs do. The Soviet Union proved that years ago. Even China has morphed into a Capitalist/communist society. Your BS has failed every time it’s been tried. You can’t get something for nothing. If you are getting something without working for it then someone else isn’t getting what they DID work for.

First I would like to point out that not once in my previous reply; did I call you a name; any name. Not even your own as I assumed that you already knew that. You can take a minute to peruse the comment again if you feel the need. I’ll wait; Dum de dum de dum dum de do; You back? Good because before I go on; I really need to mention something. I usually don’t critique other writers spelling because it is so often just a typo when it happens in comments. I do it all the time. But this is the second or third time that you have used the word Comfiscate and I feel that I would be remiss if I don’t tell you. I am sure that you won’t take the word of a “lazy lay on your back do nothing” like myself so I have copied from Dictionary.com for your edification.
comfiscate – no dictionary results
Did you mean confiscate con·fis·cate [kon-fuh-skeyt, kuhn-fis-keyt] Show IPA verb, con·fis·cat·ed, con·fis·cat·ing, adjective
verb (used with object) 1. to seize as forfeited to the public domain; appropriate, by way of penalty, for public use.
2. to seize by or as if by authority; appropriate summarily.
“Defend your indefensible position. If a little comfiscation is good, why not comfiscate it all and bring on your supposed utopia?”
Steve; I just don’t know where to start.
Let’s begin with the simple and then move on to the more complex.
1. Something that really irks me is when I keep saying “Tan” and you keep telling me I said “Brown”. If what I meant was “Brown”; I damn well know how to say it. Tan Tan Tan Tan. Get it Steve? Fucking Tan. I do not now; nor have I ever in the past; suggested that I would support a Communist Government. Neither a Soviet nor a Chinese style Communism.
I do not like communism in my house.
I will not like it for my spouse.
I will not like it at dusk or dawn.
I will not like communism;
I don’t give a damn.
What lies you tell of me; Steve I am.
Get that Steve? Now that was the simple part. On to the more complex.
Above; you tell me to defend my position.
My position is that a little bit of Socialism mixed with our Capitalism; would be a good thing.
Then you suggest: “If a little comfiscation is good,(my idea), why not comfiscate it all and bring on your supposed utopia?” Note that the idea to “Comfiscate” it all came from you; and then you call it “MY supposed utopia” (Utopia by the way is a proper noun and therefore should be capitalised)
But as I have clearly stated several times and you alluded to when you said “if a little confiscation is good”; a little confiscation was what I suggested. So what you have done in essence is take my idea of a little confiscation; and expand on it to ask me to change it to total confiscation or in-other-words; you have taken my suggestion of adding a little Socialism to our society; and you have expanded on it and nearly begged me to support your more extreme plan of total Communism.
Next you say: “The Soviet Union proved that years ago.” Proved what Steve? That your idea of total Communism is a good one? I’m so confused.
Then we hear: “Even China has morphed into a Capitalist/communist society” (I don’t mean to be a pain in the ass Steve but Communist; when used as a label for a society is a proper noun also and therefore should be capitalized; especially when the other half of the label is capitalised as you have done here. No big deal to me Steve but I don’t want you getting any nasty letters from the American Communist Party demanding equal treatment.)
Now perhaps I should repeat your last statement. “Even China has morphed into a Capitalist/communist society”
Is this a popular thing for nations to do now? Are there many other countries spontaneously morphing into Capitalist/Communist societies? I mean “Even China is on the band wagon suggests that they have confirmed your idea that mixing Capitalism with communism is a good plan.
But Steve; You just got done telling me that what you wanted was total communism. How can you now say that you want a mix. Really Steve; I think you better do a little soul searching and figure out just what it is you do want. Is it Communism or Capitalism/Communism?
Well; let me just state for the record that I’m going to stick with my idea of Capitalism/ Socialism Steve. Tan Tan Tan But definitely not Brown Steve. I don’t know why you would ever support Brown Steve. The Soviet Union proved years ago that Brown (Total Communism) doesn’t work. Even the Chinese have found that a system as restrictive as theirs is helped when Capitalism is added into the mix. No; I think I’ve got the best idea Steve. You can keep your Communism.

Steve, Please take special care to note that not once in my entire reply immediately above did I call you a name other than Steve; which I can only assume is still acceptable to you. If I have erred; please be sure to let me know and I will refrain from refering to by any monicker at all but will refer to you simply as “You”. Thanks for stopping by Steve eh You eh; whatever.
Come on tell the truth. Don’t you feel like you can breathe easier over on this and the other Liberal sites you follow? Not so stuffy and dull and scary.
