Iran disbands "Morality Police"...

 

Not buying it. They are still a theocracy and still a dictatorship. They are just playing a shell game in hopes the world will get distracted by a quick news cycle.

 Don't you support

 Don't you support America's morality police because it is immoral to earn a good living without giving up most of what I earn to those that don't? How are you any better tha the Mullas of Iran?

You think there is nothing wrong with making the 'rich' pay for others. They think there is nothing wrong with making women wear headcoverings. What is the difference?

Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success. --Mark Skousen

Oh shut up. Seiously. You sound like a married guy who thinks because they have a higher paying job they can tell the woman to shut up and make them a sandwich.

THAT is not how healthy economies work. Nobody  is talking about ending the private sector, or ending wealth. Nobody wants a dictatorship, so just stop your bullshit bitching. 

Governments in free societies are there to serve everyone equally, that is what "common law" means. It does not mean only the rich get what they want and everyone else bows to the rich. 

Collective bargaining is part of a free soceity. Simply saying "fuck you I got mine" is nothing short of anarchy and is actually what leads to dictatorships like Gaddaffi and Saddamn and Fidel Castro. The Kim family in North Korea are not poor. The Saudi Royal family, are also not poor. 

Common law, and checks and balances  insures that no one class, no one political party, no one religion, no one business has a monopoly on the rest of society. 

Taxes are NOT robbery, and only a crybaby idiot would claim they are. Taxes are why we have public roads, police, military, libraries, museums, public schools, public colleges.  Those things are paid for by taxes. 

But for you to even dare try to impy I want a dictatorship or I hate all wealth is fucking absurd. And I will laugh in your face if you want to claim raising taxes on someone like Musk or Bezos is going to end them up on the street eating cat food. 

I am sorry it bothers you that other people exist besides billionaires, but that is your baggage, not mine.

Why should I think that Communist or Socialists bosses would be any less greedy than Capitalists? They have the same DNA don't they? Don't Communists have their holy scriptures, their beliefs that must never be questioned, indoctrination of the young, appeals to the downtrodden and their religious icons?

Where is the science and reason in any your moral policing? How exactly are we ever going to have a world without warfare when there are too many fucking people competing for few resources? Never an answer for that one.

Roads can be paid for with user fees. A major problem with roads now is that electric vehicles don't pay because we use taxes not user fees. If I just work at home and buy very little, why should I subsidize people that need to travel and buy tons of shit they don't need? Taxation is about one group subsidizing(slavery to) another.

Having taxes pay for the miliary industrial complex just means we get into unecessary wars that make war profiteers richer. If a war was really necessary, you can just volunteer your time and money to fight it. But you want taxes because you want to force your moral values about war upon others. Same as the Mullas.

Our public libraries are now homeless shelters and books can be downloaded, so why do we need them?

Public schools are a joke that only serve the needs of teachers unions. If public education is so great, why is there always another gernation of kids whose parents(the products of public education) can't afford to educate their own kids? We pay endlessly for their perpetual failure. Biden's loan forgiveness is the latest example.

Taxation is slavery. Taxation is theft.

Well, for starters, we could kill the fat white fuckers who hoard 90% of those resources.

Who would pay the taxes and maintain the infrastructure if you kill off all the white males?

Funny how white people are the problem but when leftists give an example of socialism working, it is only white majority countries with low birth rates. Why is that? Apparently only white people know how to do Socialism right?

i didn't say kill all white males. i mean the handful of billionaires that have everything and don't pay shit in taxes.

"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."

The top 1% pays 38% of taxes.

So if they are paying even more in taxes, they won't be buying yachts and mansions. What do you say to the guys that build these things if you are so pro-worker? How should they feed their families or we should just have a massive transfer of wealth from workers to single moms that pump out babies with deadbeat guys? Is that the culture you want?
