Comment of the Day: Back to the `50s, But All The Way

Categories: Whatever

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

We wrote about how Texas state legislators who had passed language allowing transgendered residents to get married were now frantically looking to reverse it.

One reader said the GOP wanted to go back to the `50s, they had to go hard-core.

If Republicans want to take the USA back to the 1950s when they think everything was hunky dory and neato, - fine, let them do that, as long as they reinstate the 91`% tax rate on incomes of over $400K, and the 52% tax rate on corporations. Also they can shut down free trade and NAFTA while they're at it, and reinvent the steel and electronic manufacturing industries and reinstate all the good American Dream jobs that they pissed away by giving them away to China.

And tell the masturbating Teabaggers that Saint Ronnie set forth a new policy of Americans borrowing from China to finance expenditures and defense, as set forth in his First Inaugural Address. Compare their position of borrowing from what Reagan said, and Carter's Crisis of Confidence speech. They would side with Carter when it comes to financial austerity and not Reagan.


....and despite those high tax rates mentioned above the economy was booming; the middle class was strong and the rich weren't raping and pillaging through the tax breaks and tax loopholes.
