Video clip of the day


The hypocrisy of these supposed "Patriotic Millionaires" is exposed when asked to give voluntarily to the Department of the Treasury in this 3 minute clip from the Daily Caller.

"It would be of no impact whatsoever"

You said it, champ: Quite similar to the effect on the national debt it would have if they raised taxes on you people.

We're going to have to assume that these "patriots" inherited or otherwise fell into their fortunes unwittingly as taking this stance demostrates an economic illiteracy that suggests they did not make all that jack by their wits, alone.

And what is particularly galling is this notion that they think of themselves as being so noble as to quantify a level of patriotism commensurate with the amount of money they give to the government. That is patently absurd on its face.

Perhaps these jackasses would like to visit Balboa Hospital here in San Diego and the wounded warriors convalescing and re-habbing there to get a much needed recalibration with respect to the term.

I think I read 11 billion dollars. Sounds like a lot but, of course, it ain't.
