Left and right agree that industrial progress happens when human work is replaced by machine work. Instead of sweat, blood, and tears, we input oil, coal, and machinery, to get a much larger output. But inventing and buying machines is risky and expensive, so nobody does it if workers are cheap enough. That's why the South, with cheap slave labor, didn't industrialize as much as the slaveless north. It's why the ancient world, with all of those cheap slaves, stayed right on the brink of industrial revolution, even though they understood steam power and the piston engine (in China they even produced chrome and drilled for oil).

So, high labor costs drive innovation. Cheap labor leads to being economically outcompeted, and militarily defeated. But labor rights are not the answer, for two reasons:

1. A highly-valued working class can't be treated as expendable in war: a huge disadvantage. It's why muslims get to use suicide bombers while our side panics with every single death. Notice there was no terrorism or other 3rd-world uppityness after WW1 showed them that Christians were willing to die in the millions for nothing more than national ego.

2. A well-paid working class wastes all it's money on booze and other immoral entertainments. Also, giving them a taste of money makes them greedy, and less contented.

So, how do we raise labor costs without making the inferior class get uppity?

The answer is payroll taxes, sales taxes, and other taxes that are paid by the working class. It will cost more to employ them, but they won't "drink their paychecks" because the money will be taxed and used for war and agricultural subsidies for Monsanto corporation. Everybody wins!

Great intellectual insight into the workings of the economy, Brother Jeb.

On a moral level, workers should pay more taxes just out of respect for the wealthy. When people a nice to each other, things just work out.

Here, we have the wealthy owning business and buying things for themselves, letting the working class have jobs to produce them. That is nice of wealthy people. Those with less should return the favor by paying more taxes.

The working class NEEDS to be taxed for its OWN good Brethren. Once they see the tax reward is to be rich the working class will stop choosing to be poor like they did during the Great Depression.



Time to reclaim our FREEDOM from the “Mullah in Chief” and his growing activist voter hoards of socialists, communists, anti-Semites, anti-Christians, atheists, radical gays and lesbians, feminists, illegal immigrants, Muslims, anti-Anglo whites and others.

Wait, do you mean "working class" or "workin' class"?

Working class means smelly guys with plumber pants who whistle at passing women and waste all their money on booze, right? Yeah, tax them.

But I'm "workin' class". I have millions of dollars and an education but I forgot everything those "call-age types" thought and I say stuff like "workin'" and "call-age types". Workin' class people are Real Americans, unlike the working class.

Bleeding-heart liberals are always harping over the fact that the poor can't pay their rent, have to eat cat food, don't have access to health care, and on and on. I get so sick of hearing it!

The fact is, with Obambi in office, the poor have never had it so good. They're already on their third year of unemployment checks. Our Marxist Muslim president held the gun to the heads of the Republicans, forcing them to vote for another unemployment insurance extension in exchange for extending the fully-justified Bush tax cuts for the rich. It's only thanks to those tax cuts that the rich have more money to invest, creating lots of good jobs in China. And thanks to those good jobs, you see more and more Chinks visiting America as tourists, spending money in Las Vegas and Atlantic City casinos and brothels, thus creating more jobs for the Mexican maids and trafficked Russian women we employ.

Of course, my company does create plenty of jobs for American citizens as well. Indeed, most of the people we employ in our privatized prisons are Americans. At 42 cents a day, their wages are in line with what we pay our child laborers in Bangladesh and Cambodia. Outside of the prisons, it's only because of the rotten minimum wage laws that American workers are uncompetitive.

In short, it's tax cuts for the rich that make the US economy work. On the other hand, if you give tax cuts to the poor, none of that money gets invested. Instead, it all gets spent on abortions, cat food and credit card payments. Furthermore, once you start showering the poor with tax cuts, they have no incentive to work. So really, by taxing them more, we're doing them a favor.

Of course, I sympathize with the poor, which is why my company offers opportunities to help make them rich. For example, our casinos offer them slot machines, roulette, blackjack, keno, and other lucrative investments. You can't imagine the joy it brings to my heart when I see some little old lady winning a slot machine jackpot with the last nickel from her social security check. I know she'll return again next month and give it all back - and then some - but hey, she's happy, and that's what counts.

Along with bailouts for Wall Street bankers, it's tax cuts for the rich that make the US economy the largest in the world. Of course, if the poor would just pay their fair share, it would be even better.

Politicians are always pandering to the inferior classes, but for anyone who thinks the "working" class is anything more than ghetto/trailer trash I have three words for you: Jerry Springer Show.

As for me, what I've got is voluntary poverty. I can become rich whenever I want, it's just that I have more important things to pray for right now than money.
