Probably not.

4. It's really that simple. Yet still the little lambs will hop and bounce their way to the slaughter.

Some people are just so overpowered by their gut feelings (hatred, racism, etc) that they will push away all logic to follow their 'gut'.

8. We made the graphic

The link to the Brookings study is here:

http://www.brookings.edu/research/papers/2012/08/01-tax-reform-brown-gale-looney

...our calibration of the upper limit suggests that even by eliminating tax expenditures ‘starting at the top’—where we combine the proposed rate cuts with complete elimination of tax expenditures for taxpayers with income over $200,000—after-tax income would still increase by 4.1 percent among taxpayers with income over $1,000,000 and 0.8 percent for taxpayers earning between $200,000 to $500,000. (That translates to a tax decrease of $87,000 and $1,800 for those two groups.) However, on average, after-tax income for taxpayers earning less than $200,000 would need to decrease by 1.2 percent, an effective tax increase of $500 per household.

Here's another chart:

10. That graphic you did is the best I've seen.

Simple enough for, well, for the Tea Party to understand. Thanks.

18. Credit goes to Skinner on this one

Like most of the daily pics it was a joint effort conceptually, but he did the artwork today. Glad you like it though!

9. Repubes will look at this and

see the opposite, then pass it around before realizing they've been spreading the truth.
