Taxes for Dummies

Bob Cesca has a video of some right-wing radio talker carrying on about being “targeted” by President Obama because he earns more than $250,000 a year.

Aside from being the poster child for the Culture of Victimhood that has become the in thing for white straight patriarchs, this fellow proves a point I’ve made before: If you make over $250,000 a year and haven’t hired a tax attorney or an accountant who can find enough loopholes and deductions to get your tax rate below that of the guy who cleans your pool, you’re an idiot and you deserve to pay as much in taxes as the government can squeeze out of you.

In fact, I’m all in favor of having a tax on people who go on the radio and carry on as if their home was in a tree about high taxes. Based on the current crop, including this hatemonger who is about to become the Chief of Staff to a Florida congressman (who himself is a living example of Tea Party batshittery), we’d have the deficit down to nothing in a year.
