Tucker Carlson is an insufferable little piece of #!&*
http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/node/37922

This little trust fund baby who's never known a day in his life of hunger or poverty says:

There aren't enough rich people in this country to pay down the debt to the extent is needs to be paid down. So we're going to have to turn back, it seems to me our expenditures and that means cutting entitlements; Social Security and particularly Medicare, that will need to be dealt with.

I think the basic assumptions of American life which are the assumptions of, increasingly of Socialism, that government will be there for you and take care of you are going to be reexamined pretty soon. I hope so and the one other thing I would say is the trend in the last thirty years in this country has been away from risk. Risk is bad and anything that is even slightly dangerous is terrifying; smoking, see-saws, you know anything that's going to hurt you is really, really bad.

And the result is the country's gotten grayer and less interesting because the flip side of risk is of course joy and I hope that we're moving back from that and maybe accepting risk as part of life. We all it turns out, I have heard anyway, die in the end and maybe we should just accept that and live with the greater degree of courage and happiness. Maybe be a tiny bit more like Israel it seems to me would be good.


For Pete's sake his mother is a Swanson Food heiress and his father was a PBS honcho who got him a job. He's never done without anything he ever wanted but he thinks we peons should all step up and assume some "risk". For him to even be on TV makes my blood boil.

2. Fine. Here's how you "deal" with them
Lift the earnings cap of FICA taxes.

Problem solved. It's really not that complicated.

Besides FICA is for peons.

3. Dear Tucker - it's the rich people who did this
who voted for the little bush, who backed his decisions and encouraged him to screw us all and he did it for the rich people so they could get richer!

19. Cut the defense budget? That'll hurt his stock portfolio..
Ending our participation in two wars would solve most of our budgetary problems. Cutting "corporate welfare" would help also but once again it would hurt their stock portfolios. In essence we're all working for Tucker (and his investments) and he wants us to suck it up!.

6. Most people in his situation keep still about "the small people"
They know better than get wrapped up in hypocrisy.

11. Best comment so far is "tax your ass at 44%" like they do in Isreal...


lets be a little more like Israel and tax your ass at 44%

Monthly Income level (US$) 2005 2010
1,650 2,475 32 25
2,475 3,555 37 30
3,555 4,420 37 32
4,420 7,655 39 32
over 7,655 49 44

AND they have socialized medicine!

13. There are too many rich people...
...to be paying the debt to. How about we settle up with them at 10 cents on the dollar for all the bonds, bills, and notes that they hold and call it even?

22. You mean the little scumbag never finished college?
University: History, Trinity College, Hartford, CT (attended, no degree)

If he was Dick Carlson from Evanston IN he'd be lucky to have a job at the local Jiffy Lube.
