Quote of the Day

In the comments of QandO, found this gem:
Reviving a bankrupt argument
"I think a better analogy for our liberal friends is the chicken-tax-payer. Given that you think the deficit is going to ruin this country and taxes must be increased (as opposed to reducing spending on things like farm subsidies, earmarks, a completely superfluous federal Dept. of Education, prescription drugs for affluent senior citizens, means testing social security, etc.) to avoid this calamity, why don’t you liberals pay more. Provide us with copies of your tax returns to prove that you have foregone any available deductions and you will no longer be a chicken-tax-payer. And don’t give us any crap about how you are merely taking deductions allowed by law. No one has to take any deductions if they don’t want to. If you think that the government is so wonderful, then put your money where your mouth is and pay for all the wonderful programs that you think it should provide to us.

I live in Los Angeles and have worked in the legal field for 15 years. I deal with my clients’ business and tax matters every day. The ratio of liberals to conservatives amongst my colleagues and clients is about 10 to 1. Every single one of the liberals does everything he can to pay as little income tax as possible."
