  • Satire. Poll Finds Most People OK With Raising Taxes On Other People

    01/17/2019 8:20:41 AM PST · by gattaca · 13 replies
    U.S.—In a stunning new poll, Americans indicated they are OK with a 70% marginal tax rate, indicating that since the hefty taxes would only apply to other people and not themselves, they are alright with the extremely high taxes. "See, a lot of people think the proposed 70% tax rate is way too high," said one woman in California. "But what they don't understand is that the 70% is only on really rich people---in other words, not me. Let's crank it up to 90, 100, or 110% even. I don't mind in the slightest." Americans all over the country suggested...

    We Can No Longer Tolerate An Economic System Where The Rich Get Richer And The Poor Also Get Richer An op-ed by Bernie Sanders Capitalism has failed us. The year is [editor please insert current year here], and we still have an economic system where the rich people just continue to get richer, while the poor suffer by also getting richer. We must look to socialism for a more equitable system, one in which there are no upper or lower classes---well, at least one in which there is no upper class. We must look to socialism, where wealth isn't created...

    A professional fisherman got a big surprise as he tried to launch his boat at Lake Sam Rayburn to practice for a fishing tournament this past weekend. Eric Jackson, of Rock Island, TN, told 12News his two-year-old Dalmatian, Bodi, stepped on the gear shift switch, putting the 38-foot RV in reverse.  Jackson says he was on the back bumper unloading his boat when the RV began backing into the lake. Jackson had been working to launch his boat at the ramps at the Umphrey Family Pavillion of Highway 255. He was planning a practice day before the Fishing League Worldwide 2019...

    We’re pretty picky about how our food is packaged – choosing the wrong name, packaging color or logo can scare us away from a product. You’d think that a food company would want to do some research to make sure that their product isn’t ridiculed or doesn’t seem repulsive, but judging by these food name package design fails, some of these guys don’t seem to have gotten that memo. Some of these are translation fails – we can only hope that that Chinese food company isn’t selling shredded children and that it was actually a funny fail. Others, like the...

    TEXAS—In an innovative new plan to deter illegal immigrants from crossing into our country, church greeters are being stationed along the border, smiling and stretching out their hands to cheerily greet anyone who approaches. The excitable, impossibly peppy greeters will chase down Mexican immigrants in order to shake their hand, welcome them to the country, and give them a bulletin and church swag, inevitably prompting the frightened immigrants to run away as fast as they can. "Welcome to America, we're so glad to have you with us this morning. How has your week been?" they'll recite dutifully to each approaching...

    A blonde city girl named Amy marries a Colorado rancher. One morning, on his way out to check on the cows, the rancher says to Amy, "The insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of our cows, so I drove a nail into the 2x4 just above the cow's stall in the barn. Please show him where the cow is when he gets here, OK?" The rancher leaves for the fields. After a while, the artificial insemination man arrives and knocks on the front door. “I came to inseminate the cow,” he said. Amy takes him down to the...

Earlier this week, Katie Gould, a law student, was stranded at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport....{snip} It was four hours until Gould could board the next flight to Milwaukee. Instead of killing time watching TV like she normally does, Gould turned the delay into an opportunity.

    AMAZON boss Jeff Bezos sent a photograph of his "big" willy to lover Lauren Sanchez in a string of sex text messages, it's been claimed. The tech tycoon - worth a staggering $140bn - also reportedly told the married TV star he was "full of love" for her and wanted to wake her up "and not be quite so gentle" with her. In addition to shirtless photographs, he is also said to have sent Sanchez an "unsparing" photograph of his genitals and 'sexts' which were apparently too graphic to publish, according to a National Enquirer source speaking to the New...
