Capitalists, Socialists, and Anti-War Protesters

Bono wants you to pay more in taxes while he shelters his income from taxes.

Revenue from the Vertigo tour is funneled through companies that are mostly registered in Ireland and structured to minimize taxes. ``U2 are arch-capitalists -- arch-capitalists -- but it looks as if they're not,'' says Jim Aiken, a music promoter who helped stage U2 concerts in Ireland during the 1980s and 1990s.

Socialists John Kerry and John Edwards seem to enjoy their wealth--heck, Edwards lives in the largest and most expensive house in his county!

John Kerry was married to one of the richest people in the country,and John Edwards was a good ideological pick.No word yet on Edwards or Kerry voluntarily paying more in taxes to bridge the "gap" between the two Americas.Who ever said socialism was a movement of the downtrodden?

Actually, there was word. Massachusetts has a provision in which taxpayers can opt to pay a slightly higher tax rate--just check a block on their income tax return. Kerry chose not to.

And now the anti-war protesters, who are in reality either anti-American or anti-Bush.

None of these people are (sic) anti-war. They're only anti-America. There are about 20 wars going on in the world today and the only one that any leftist anywhere can get excited about is whatever America is doing to protect itself.

I don't heart leftists of any stripe, even when they use capitalism to make their stupid points.

In case you haven't realized it, there's a whole new set of requirements for running for president.
1. You must write a book. It doesn't have to be good; it doesn't even have to make sense. You don't even have to have actually written it personally, you could have simply dictated it.
2. You must have a meaningless but PC political issue to address. It could be manatees. It could be gays. It could be polar bears. It could be gay manatees being victimized by polar bears. The issue doesn't matter, but which celebrities also back the issue does.
3. You must hobnob with the hoi-polloi of Tinsel Town. Preferably at the Oscars. Call Babs.
4. You must not be named Osama, Adolph, Hussein, Hirohito or any known war criminal.
5. You must never ever ever say what you really think. Watch Best Little Whorehouse for some ideas.
6.You must have a slick internet movie/ad. Preferably one directed by a Big Name Director Who Is Doing This For the Good of Personkind.
