Fox & Friends: “Unfair to the Job Creators - 650,000 Homeless Pay No Income Tax!”

“I want to start this segment out by bringing up something that the main stream media never tells people about,” said Steve Doocy, wearing a half crooked smile and a bright yellow tie. “Apparently they don’t want anyone to think about the fact that there are 650,000 homeless people out there, living high on the hog and paying no income taxes whatsoever.”

“Meanwhile,” continued Brian Kilmead. “There are billionaire job creators paying ten, eleven, sometimes even twelve percent of the money they can’t hide in the Cayman Islands… It’s unconscionable!”

“Exactly!” Gretchen Carlson said, sporting a wide eyed, ‘You know they’ve landed’ grin. “Of course everyone now agrees that the disabled, those living on Social Security and the working poor need to pay a lot more. A LOT more, but the homeless, they’re not even mentioned. They have some powerful liberals working on their behalf in Washington and it’s time someone shined a great big spotlight on this gaping hole in our tax system.”

“It’s a cover-up that we on Fox & Friends aren’t afraid to tell you about,” Steve Doocy said, picking up without a pause. His eyes revealing his mind is devoid of thought. His, ‘Patented secret to being a successful news anchor,’ according to his soon to be released autobiography, Don’t Think! “We just know that George Soros is behind this. Liberal, socialist, left-wing, Nazi, anti-capitalists like Soros are always trying to figure out ways to hurt real Americans by helping those that already have it too easy… No taxes at all. It just burns me up!”

“You’re so right, Steve,” said Kilmead, almost bouncing in his seat. “Soros and the homeless thought they had the perfect dodge, but no more. Now that Fox & Friends have uncovered this, it’s time for everyone to get outraged!”

Bemoaning the fact that homeless people are stealing our oxygen, but the silver lining is that those bums are chock full of delicious meat ready to be marinated and BBQ'd. Time to "liquidate" the homeless' assets and fire up the grill!

10. HIGH ON THE HOG!!!!!

Sleeping in parks, wearing the same cloths for a month, not sure where the next bit of food will come from, degrading yourself for a quarter.
The homeless don't make any money! Those DUMB "JOB CREATORS" WON"T HIRE THEM!!!
I want them to live 2 months with only a $200 Food Stamp card on the street. Do it during winter so they can get the full effect. Then they can say something.

38. So......

people are homeless just so they don't have to pay taxes? What a clever plan! I could save a shitload of money by being homeless. Would it be OK if I kept my job? How does that work? But wingnuts don't want to pay taxes either. Does that mean they want to be homeless and get kicked and abused by their fellow wingnuts who aren't smart enough to figure out what a windfall being homeless is?

40. This is for real, believe it or not

Today on FOX Saturday Business show, the panel spent some time crying for France as they are sure France will soon be bankrupt if it raises the highest tax rate on all their millionaires and billionaires; they all will undoubtedly take citizenship in another country as Depardieu is doing. Then one of their "financial experts" (Nobel in economics I'm sure) said "It is not fair that so many people in the US pay no taxes; it means that they will never vote to decrease taxes because they depend on the government to take care of them. If they had to pay taxes they would have a stake in how the government is run." The next genius said, "That's why I'm for the flat tax; because it's so fair. Everyone pays the same percent of their income."

Took me a few minutes, since I don't have a PhD in econ, to figure: if my income is $20,000 (more than the minimum wage) and the often suggested flat tax rate is 10% I would pay $2,000 in tax, leaving me $18,000 to live on (without, of course, the free higher education and health care the French enjoy).
If your income is $200,000 you would pay $20,000, leaving you $180,000 to live on.
If your income is $2,000,000 you would pay $200,000 and you would have to make do with $1,800,000.
I couldn't go higher as my calculator is old and I was weeping for Depardieu.
