Charles Krauthammer On The "Fairness Doctrine"



Capital gains are treated differently than normal income because it is the pool of capital that allows the economy to grow. That's why, every time we have dropped the Capital Gains tax over the past half century, it has resulted in increased tax revenues overall. And that's why Sweden, the most "progressive" of the European socialist countries, recently took the "radical" step of dropping their capital gains tax to zero. There are a host of arguments to be made for treating capital gains differently than ordinary income, and Charles Krauthammer makes a lot of them in the video below.



(H/T Nice Deb)

I would just add that Obama's Fairness Doctrine is the pure and unadulterated language of socialism. It is not the language of capitalism.

He's not saying anything new. What's really odd about this video is Krauthammer's face. He looks like he's wearing a mask. Why is his face so grey; it's like he's been dead for a week? Weird.

Ummm, he's got substantial physical issues, ExD. He's in a wheelchair. Has for many years...


I love this video, it shows just how the people of OWS act:
The monkeys of Occupy Wall Street

Ummm, Krauthammer is generally a sickly kind of guy. He's been in a wheelchair for a long time, so I'd assume that, if your color registration isn't off, that he might actually BE seriously ill.

Today (Sun, 20 May 2012) makes four weeks since this last post.

Hope you are Ok.

I know life has this way of intruding, and sometimes (for me anyways) the muse will shack up with someone else and all you can do is hope she returns so you can ask, "Well, did you have a good time?" :-)
