  • Nice. and well written. Congrats. Is there compensation associated with such? asked totally naive Doug…..

  • The Dark Avenger says:

    Tom is an great example of conservatives reacting to the truth like a snail reacting to salt poured on it.

  • I lol'd at the fake news comment. Good comedy.

    In a saner world, Ed's entire article would be summarized by: Duh.

    For our expats, do other countries have this rats nest of a tax code, with exemptions and deductions buried deep for corporate tax lawyers?

  • As needs always be said these occasions: Congratulations.

    (I mean, eventually we'll all get sick of your success, and then the artist-fan dynamic will enter the phase when we turn on our hero and tear you down in a pathetic attempt to feel better about our own lack of accomplishments, but let's not spoil the ending, it's all about the ride, man.)

  • Holy Shit! The comments section over at the RS article is a dumpster fire. Let's hope it doesn't leak back over here through some kind of Internet osmosis like effect.

  • AlwaysRight21 is over there and also over at "Friendly Atheist".

    It's odd that I got banned for attacking spamming trolls (yes, I did it with a very, very naughty–and 100% accurate–cruel way of talking to them. For some reason one of the trolls finally got the boot the other day but I see that this AR21 asshole is still shitting all over any thread he gets on. Folks like him are the reason that my blog is always moderated on the comments.

  • I heartily join with others in congratulations at all the published work lately.

    The rejoinders to Tom's comment are (so far) suitably droll and I don't disagree with them, but his comment does provide an example of why I just can't see the path to impeachment, let alone conviction, opening up (the first without the second would probably be worse than useless).

    As long as there are still several million Toms out there, the GOP House members will never risk their wrath at the polls. Enough of them to represent even 5 percent of the primary electorate could wreck them, and we have way more than that. I think there's a better chance of a 25th-Amendment solution, and not very much of that.

  • I'm happy to see this getting more mainstream attention, but I have to agree with SafetyMan!: duh. To my observation this is so readily apparent, so "common knowledge" that I can not believe we're writing about it.

    Dem, comments at my house were turned off when then failing half-term governor Sarah Palin, the Quitta from Wassila, tried to convince me the scrotum suckers tea baggers were an up by the bootstraps grassroots organization.

  • Emerson Dameron says:

    @Prairie Bear:

    Trump's ~35% firewall of suckers is probably enough to get him reelected in a landslide.

  • Congrats on another publication. As Ten Bears and others noted, the premise is painfully obvious, but I'm happy that you got to publish it.

    One quibble: Comparing a Republican congresscritter to a Keebler elf is reserved for AG Sessions. You'll need to come up with something else for Hatch. I'm sure the commentariat here could help out.

  • Pretty mild stuff compared to what you write here. I prefer here but it's good you're getting some nationwide column inches.

  • yea! great article. to think i readyou when.. . lol some nasty comments !
    Tax the rich to death before we poor folks go broke .

  • Good going Ed.
    A bit late to give whatshisname the attention he craves except to say if that's the best you got, stick to masturbation.

  • schmitt trigger says:

    As a long time follower of your blog: Well deserved congratulations!

    I'm also with Democommie's very first comment.

  • This is closer to what we want: getting the unvarnished Gin and Tacos voice before the wider world! When you have a byline and can hold forth on whatever the hell you please, my own satisfaction will be complete. On this one subject, that is.

  • The Rolling Stone comment section has been a dumpster fire ever since the controversy over the UVA rape story. It's a meme continually reinforced on right wing sites like the Daily Caller: Leftists at Rolling Stone promote false racism stories by pushing fake accusations of lying black woman against innocent frat brothers.

  • Heh. I like that you are not being asked to tone it down and instead amp it up a bit. Your writing does deserve a wider audience. Good for you. Just don't forget us little folk when you're at the top, mmmkay?

  • Creigh Gordon says:

    The article points to a link that purportedly "disproves the claim that economic growth will skyrocket after tax cuts." What the link actually says is: "Implementing tax policies that would curb the disproportionate concentration of wealth in the corporate and financial sectors could simultaneously create the capacity for real public investment and promote economic growth." Two examples of tax cuts that did just that were Obama's temporary suspension of Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes, and George W. Bush's rebate of $300 of tax year 2000 taxes. Both worked to push economic growth because they were aimed at people who would spend the money on newly produced goods and services. The typical upper-income tax cut, on the other hand, is just used to inflate the prices of existing high end real estate in Manhattan and old masters paintings, or else the funds are lent to the rest of us and used to inflate the price of existing suburban real estate and college educations.
