Paul Ryan accuser won’t talk | Byron York | Beltway Confidential | Washington Examiner

July 12, 2011

I asked Feinberg, an economist, what price constituted outrageous in her mind. Would she have been as upset if Ryan’s wine were $150 a bottle? Or $100 a bottle? Or perhaps $80 a bottle, like her own — which is, after all, more than a day’s labor for a worker making the minimum wage.

NO! NO! NO! She’s a crusader for the POOR!™ and UNDERPRIVILEDGED!™ Her 80 dollar bottle of wine was much more responsible, even though, as pointed out, probably out of the reach of the POOR!™ and UNDERPRIVILEDGED!™

Welcome to the left’s sad and pathetic attempt at class warfare, where if you spend your money, you are a bad, bad person. But ofcourse, if you spend and waste OTHER people’s money, you are a paragon of virtue… and if your value goes up 62% in the middle of a great recession… well… as long as there is a “-D” next to your name…. well just ignore that…..

    Um, just as valid as this canard that lit up the RIGHT WING blogosphere:

    “O’Keefe resorted to creating statements in the best traditions of comedy sketches — he stitched an answer to one question onto a completely different question.”

    “O’Keefe didn’t just chop minutes out of the interview, he cut, copied, pasted, and rearranged the video to make Schiller into the parody of an NPR executive that the right expected.”

    Oh, and THIS is priceless:

    “left’s sad and pathetic attempt at class warfare”

    Oh, because the right ignores “class”, huh?

    “we have 20 percent of the people in 2008 paying 84 percent of the taxes in this country, we have a problem with our tax code.”

    But when the top 20% own 85% of the wealth, that doesn’t quite bear out about the “Poor” Overtaxed™ Overburdened™ Non-Poor™.

    “and if your value goes up”

    ??? What? So If your net worth is large, and you still are fighting to keep a progressive tax structure, how EXACTLY is that class warfare? That is voting against your personal interest, and FOR the public interest. Your argument falls apart badly.

    Mike. You FAIL, once again. But your attempts to equivocate are cute.

    And yes, the “RICH” continue to get richer… even those wonderfully progressive democrats. Perhaps Pelosi should write a check to the Treasury Department? There is a link for direct payments for all of that extra “wealth” that she has, so she should do the patriotic thing and just give it to Congress and the Treasury to spend? I mean, right? It’s only the right thing to do while so many people are “hurting”…

    Oh yeah. We want to take “other” people’s money… not give more of our own… how quaint…

    Some animals are more equal than others indeed…
