    ever read the Lincoln-Douglas debates?..., 2004-02-19 12:14:05 | Main | Lt. Col. Karen Kwiatkowski..., 2004-02-21 17:15:41

    tax me if you can:

    anti... corporate... rage... seething....

    a couple notes on the appropriate response:

    1. Corporate America is more interested in funding mass transit and sewer systems in Europe than here. Think of it as a major humanitarian project, or blame French shit.
    2. The 7 percent of all tax revenues they pay puts them at [scribbling on the back of my gas bill] somewhere below the tax burden of, say, the working homeless. One lives in cars, the other exists only on paper, do that math.
    3. We need to immediately make drastic reforms so that the breathing rich aren't so easy to audit. The IRS is blaming the victim.
    4. Intellectual property law must be expanded to protect proprietary corporate tax shelter processes under the WTO. Then we can sue the Cayman Islands for infringement.
    5. Taxes are theft and stuff, the US government should just abolish them and get by like any other business enterprise: cheating on them.

    Whatever. Back to your regularly scheduled war, which works the same way.
