All democrats and leftards do is play word games and semantics. They have to trick people into supporting / not be against their terrible policies, ideas, and bills.

This is exactly how they argue as well. Word games, semantics, and shouting.

Correct. Leftists don't think words actually contain information. Leftists view all interactions with non-leftists as a magic battle. They view conversations as a series of incantations between rival wizards. Their objective is to win the battle with the right magic words that will make you do what they want. The wizard who hits on the right combination of magic words to use on his opponent to get him to do what he wants is the winner. You must always keep that in mind.

the only way you make inflation go away is make money more scarce. That's the only way money has any real worth. When there's a finite amount of it, it has real worth. The biggest mistake was going off the Gold Standard in the 1970s

I'm convinced it's a demoralization/humiliation tactic to name bills that are the antithesis of what they're titled. It's a classic satanic action.

TAXATION IS TAXATION

GOVERNMENT SPONSORED INFLATION OF OUR MONEY SUPPLY IS THEFT. LITERALLY STEALING YOUR LIFE SAVINGS FROM UNDER YOUR PILLOW

LITERALLY STEALING YOUR LIFE SAVINGS FROM UNDER YOUR PILLOW

Taxation. Which is why taxation is theft.

-12
EvolutionIsFake -12 points ago +2 / -14

No, taxation is fundamental to government, and is approved by our representatives.

If we don't want to be taxed so highly, then we can vote people in that will reduce our taxes. The issue is, we do want to be taxed so highly. Even in solid red states, people consistently vote for higher taxes.

When the government uses the federal reserve system to manufacture money using financial tricks, with the end result being they print money into existence out of nothing, that literally steals your savings. That is theft. That has been going on for quite some time.

Excuse me while I go pay property tax on my car, property tax on my home, property tax on my businesses, sales tax, gas tax, sin tax, import tariffs, federal income tax, state income tax, employment tax, employee withholding, federal unemployment insurance, state unemployment insurance, capital gains tax, and dog tax. I hope I’m not forgetting anything, but if so I’m sure the weaponized IRS will audit me and take whatever else I owe out of the 6 months per year worth of income that I actually get to keep and charge an additional penalty for that service.

akira2501 1 point ago +1 / -0

Inflation is literally policy. At a base level, not for terrible reasons.. but our mechanism for controlling it and even just measuring it are obviously retarded.

The bigger problem is the government wants to make markets here. They're not capable of doing this, let alone efficiently. This needs to stop. To the extent that some green tech is good, it will clearly win in the marketplace without government intervention.. picking winners and losers just makes new "green monopolies."

This is a transfer of wealth from the "oil families" to the "green families." And they want to white wash it with feel good rhetoric. Fuck that.

Barbs 2 points ago +2 / -0

But if you look at what she’s asking for, she just killed it.

Manchin and Biden both want to end the carried interest loophole, but she just said “nope.” Then to make sure it wasn’t moving anywhere she added in another $5 billion for drought reduction… in a desert.

That’s a $19 billion ask. Something tells me that this isn’t a grift, this is a brick wall. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

I hate their wording: "Brings in revenue" like it's a fucking business plan selling a decent product.

Its not brininging in revenue, it's stealing more from people who actually work.

You will never see a person so gleaming with accomplishment and pride than a politician wasting your money on bullshit that will never benefit you, but actually harm you.

Elencher 4 points ago +4 / -0

It's not just politicians. The HR drone talking about how they got you better coverage for your psych drugs (how bout we just get people off them) for just a bit more money or the exec talking about the great new office they're building rather than just paying you more. People in positions of authority love to spend your money on your behalf and expect you to thank them for it rather than just giving you the money to do whatever you damn well please.

I don't know but that sounds absolutely value destroying for small cap growth companies (hello regulatory capture)

It would push out cashflow by years and years and with higher interest rates that greatly diminishes the value of that future Net Income.

If they wanted to be honest, the reporting would be “raises $739 Billion in taxes”- people need to realize that taxes are the source of these so called government revenues.

PhilosoGuido 4 points ago +4 / -0

If you ever looked at Manchin's overall voting record you wouldn't be surprised at all. He votes with Chuck Schumer over 98% of the time. He voted to impeach Trump. He voted to confirm the radical leftist diversity hire who couldn't define a woman for the Supreme Court. His scam is to make a lot of noise to con his voters and then quietly go along with the radical left.

The inflation reduction act spends $740b, which after it's done will probably spend closer to $2T. I can't tell if these fuckers are that stupid, they think we're that stupid or both.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. These nations have progressed through this sequence: From bondage to spiritual faith; From spiritual faith to great courage; From courage to liberty; From liberty to abundance; From abundance to selfishness; From selfishness to apathy; From apathy to dependence; From dependence back into bondage.

15 percent tax on corporations.

There isn't a single corporation that can absorb that without passing the cost onto consumers.

It's literally raising inflation.
