Did someone say Trump? Now look what you've done:

As a libertarian-leaning, small government conservative, I am mystified at the sycophantic fawning Trump has generated among self-proclaimed conservatives. He’s a big government establishment whore all the way down to his silk undies. He’s been in bed with the worst of the parasites for decades, and given money to Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Rangel, McCain, Weiner, (wonder if he traded dick pix with Carlos Danger)… He has proposed massive tax hikes; continues to celebrate the Kelo decision, which has enabled him confiscate private property to enrich himself and the state; and he’s flipped flopped on just about every major issue - most prominently immigration, which seems to be the calling card he’s used to move to the front of the line. He’s always been open borders & pro amnesty, right up until about 6 months before he announced. Then he suddenly changed his tune. He’s the ultimate ‘wet finger in the wind’ political hack whose only criterion for saying anything is whether or not it’ll get him some ink. I’m baffled that anyone would believe a particle of the spittle that spews from his mouth.

And then, of course, there’s the whiny bitch routine he defaults to whenever he’s challenged or disagreed with. Anyone who presumes is fat, stupid, ugly, a loser, bleeding from her whatever (!)… He’s an adolescent bully; a malignant punk who belongs in the back seat of Ted Kennedy’s Buick.

But that aside, I think he’s just SUPER. Really.

/Rant off.

Income tax distributions in 2014:

$0 - 24,200 account for 4.5% of total US income, pay -2.2% of federal income tax.

$24,200 - $47,300 account for 9.3% of total US income, pay -1% of federal income tax.

$47,300 - $79,500 account for 14.8% of total US income, pay 5.9% of federal income tax.

$79,500 - $134,300 account for 20% of total US income, pay 13.4% of federal income tax.

Above $134,300 account for 51.3% of total US income, pay 83.9% of federal income tax.

Those percentages as derived from the various income levels have been essentially static for 50 years. I'm at a loss to understand how that's insufficiently progressive for the "progressives" among us.

The destruction of a single animal ≠ "a sterile world where we have nothing to fear." Nor "irrational fear and overreaction." Despite your hyperbolic whining to the contrary; regardless of how you try to justify it with juvenile pretensions of sarcasm. Your refusal to recognize the distinction just makes you a demagogue - at best.

Yep, I do. You are clearly oblivious to the difference between sarcasm and hyperbole. One tends to be ironic; the other ascribes malignant stupidity to those with whom you disagree, for the same reason my dog licks the empty pouch where his testicles used to reside. Maybe you can bone up on those distinctions before your next GED reunion.
