5. He just played some linguistic games...
...he claimed "the bottom 44% pay no taxes" - (ABSOLUTELY FALSE)

then went on to say that they didn't share in the Federal Income Tax burden. They still pay payroll taxes, sales taxes, luxury taxes, etc. He's a liar and a terrorist ally.

7. Yeah, you don't pay federal income taxes if you don't make any money..
I'm talking about income that is below poverty level.

6. HAHAH...Caller just called Norquist the devil! LOL!


Almost on cue.

Norquist is a fucking fork tongued asshole.

Blah, blah, blah...the poor are fine...blah, blah, blah...the rich are overtaxed....blah, blah, blah....the rich pay too much....ugh..

All debunked bullshit.

The tax rate on the rich has gone DOWN. The rich have paid less and less and that is a proven fact.

When you factor in investments and offshore accounts and the estate tax being abolished and etc, etc...

There is something about rich fucks whining that they pay too much as they make 100s of times what their employees make whil moving their money offshoe...ugh...

Just total bullshit.

14. "Lou Dobbs bashes immigrants. Don't put him on the right."
So now the "conservatives" are protectors of immigrants?

12. LOL! He is squirming!
His answer about the tax burden was such a non-answer. That sort of jumbled up bunch of words that Republicans are good of creating that means absolutely nothing.

He must be thinking..."why aren't my talking points working?"

20. Whorequist is bold enough to flip-flop within one interview

Leaving aside all other issues with Whorequist -- especially that any interviewer should warn their audience that Whorequist's overriding goal is to "Starve the Beast", that is, decimate funding of government and eliminate the social programs implemented over the last 100 years -- I found Whorequist's parsing of "immigrant" and "foreigner" on tonight's Laura Flanders Show most telling.

Whorequist, on Lou Dobbs: "Lou Dobbs spends most of his time bashing immigrants."

Whorequist, on David Kay Johnson's list of "conservative" economic scholars advocating that tax systems should be based on "the ability to pay": "You listed a bunch of conservatives that you... that you know... they're a bunch of foreigners, frankly. (giggles)" ... and later ... "You can't quote a bunch of Europeans and tell us that's what Americans think."

"Immigrants" are good, 'cause they might be able to vote; foreigners are bad, no reason needed.
