Peter Schiff to Democrats: Who’s up for banning corporate profits?

posted at 9:51 pm on September 5, 2012 by Allahpundit

To cleanse the palate, a little fish-in-a-barrel fun with the regulars in Charlotte. His producer e-mails to stress that they deliberately avoided the tents outside the convention, where the radicals are camped out, so that they could get a more “mainstream” take. The result: Cluelessness leavened with a sprinkle of leftist dogma.

Elizabeth Warren’s set to speak in about 20 minutes. This ought to get you in the spirit.

May they all never get to enjoy that world they wish for. The one without profit.

I think the Founding Fathers would have burned the Constitution, given everyone poisoned Kool Aid, and called it a day if they could see into the future witnessing the sheer stupidity that runs in of the two major parties.

Sheer genius. Boo “God.” Boo Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Call for the abolition of profits. Claim that citizens belong to the government (some delegates say that it is great to be “owned” by the Federal govt. Not kidding.). Start wearing buttons that say, “Once you go black, you never go back! Obama 2012!”

Wow! What a way to win those suburban independents!

He should have asked if they were ok with their salaries (assuming they work) being capped at $30,000 so that the rest of the money can be distributed to those that sit on their a@@.

Without incentive, we’d lack risk-taking. Without risk-taking we’d lack innovation. Without innovation we don’t have economic growth. These idiots really believe America is a zero-sum game. There is no reaching them. ‘Fairness’, whatever that may be, is all that matters to them.

Sandra Fluke back to her lying ways:

“Not one woman testified on that panel.”

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

The panel was NOT all-male as the Democrats alleged. The warriors fighting against the Republicans so-called “War on Women” walked out before Dr. Laura Champion and Dr. Allison Garrett testified.

Many of those profits have come from laying people off, cutting wages, eliminating pensions and other cost-cutting measures that are the direct result of greed…

How about a Constitutional amendment to force government spending back to 1912 levels of the GDP?
