19. I work with a bunch of rich Republicans...
... and every time this topic comes up, taxing the rich and corporations, they always blather on about how those companies will simply leave the U.S. and we'd all get fucked when that happens.

I call bullshit on that when I hear it. I also say: Good, let them leave. America's beautiful and someone will rise up and fill that void. There are tons of small and medium businesses waiting for such an opening.

So let the shit bags pull up stakes and leave, we're better off without them.
