Now, see, according to you, government shouldn't be confiscatory. Bad, bad, bad.
But business can be as confiscatory as it pleases, correct?
Because at the present time, business is compensating labor for only around 30% of what labor produces. Sure, there's freight, marketing and massive bonuses to consider, but without the product or service, the business has NOTHING.
Labor is now cheated AND expected to pay more of its share of taxes to keep the public works operating, while business tears up the interstates with its trucks, destroys the ecosystem (see the Opry mall in Nashville - they also destroyed themselves paving over a floodplain), dumps massive amounts of crap into our landfills (I see the waste with my own eyes on one job - it is appalling), dumps massive amounts of crap into our water and air (costing the American citizen in health expense and quality of life) and I could just go on and on and on and on.
The job creators have been about creating jobs that one needs supplemental food stamps to live on. The modern job creator has cheated labor, provides no health care and low wages and part time jobs that sometimes barely amount to twenty hours a week.
Fuck the "confiscatory" government shit. The confiscators have made off with their bonuses tucked under their arms and a big fuck you to the rest of us who worked so hard to create that wealth for them.
Maybe no one is fighting back too hard. But many many many of us know what's going on and by whom.
"History, I believe, furnishes no example of a priest-ridden people maintaining a free civil government. This marks the lowest grade of ignorance, of which their political as well as religious leaders will always avail themselves for their own purpose." --- Thomas Jefferson to Baron von Humboldt, 1813
