Quote# 91242

The three sacred entitlement cows in the room that no politician wants to poke are Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. A blinding statement of the obvious is that we are never going to get our financial house in order until these sacred entitlement cows are not only poked, but slaughtered. Until the slaughter is over, everything else is just taxation window dressing.

In addition to slaughtering the three sacred entitlement cows that consume a vast majority of the federal budget (and I use the term budget generously), let’s truly spread the pain around and raise taxes on everyone, including the nearly 50 percent of Americans who pay zero federal income taxes. Those Americans need to have some skin in the game, too. I recommend at least a 5 percent federal income tax bracket for them. The insane free ride needs to end.

Every federal agency and department should be required to take an immediate, real 15 percent cut in its budget — no funny accounting tricks, but a real 15 percent cut. Agency budgets then should be rolled back to their 2005 level before the end of 2013.

No tax-raising deal should be signed without including a balanced-budget amendment.

Let’s also stop the insanity by suspending the right to vote of any American who is on welfare. Once they get off welfare and are self-sustaining, they get their right to vote restored. No American on welfare should have the right to vote for tax increases on those Americans who are working and paying taxes to support them. That’s insane.

In addition to suspending a welfare recipient’s right to vote, we also need to get our voting system straightened out and eliminate voter fraud. We need to ensure that only Americans vote by requiring polling places to validate the identification of each voter.

It shouldn’t take a Motown guitar slayer to come up with these common-sense bargaining chips before taxes are raised on the producers, which will further choke the economy. How about it, GOP?

This is a guy who grew up during an era of consensus and Keynesianism, and took advantage of everything that era had to offer, who now wants to shut that down for people who are in the position he was once in. Pull up the ladder and fuck everyone else, the Republican mantra.
What Ted is suggesting, whether he knows it or not, is more wealth being funnelled into the already vast concentrations of wealth in the corporate coffers, and working people being systematically disempowered. What he's suggesting politically isn't far from fascism.

This makes me feel even worse for that poor Sphynx cat from the Austin Powers movies that someone who should have known better dubbed "Ted, Nude Gent"

Ted, you're talking shit again.

Cut our taxes!
Our taxes get cut.

Cut our taxes!
Our taxes get cut.

Cut our taxes!
Our taxes get cut.

As a result of the above, some people don't pay taxes anymore.

You'd think that would be their objective, but the minute they're not paying taxes anymore, they're deadbeats.

Republican logic, working for you.

Fundies Make Me Sick

Another conservative asshole. How about we eliminate your right to vote Ted?

@CharlieE: When Ted says he's against raised taxes, he means for himself and others in his position. He has now said quite explicitly that taxes on low-income earners should be raised, while simultaneously cutting all spending. Tax me less; those other fuckers should be taxed more. If he isn't aware that's disenfranchising the poor to empower the rich, as farpadokly pointed out, he has the analytical and critical thinking skills of a newt.

Message from Hank Rollins to Ted Newtgent: "Stop bumming me out, man!" Musicians shouldn't say such stupid shit.

Most Republicans are Christian, so somebody who's a Republican must be a fundie, so anything they say goes here.

Is that the logic we're using?

This "Motown guitar slayer" has yet to come up with any common-sense barganing chips. He's a neanderthal and nothing more.

Oh go shit in your pants. I'm tired of refuting this hateful and myopic nonsense.

Voter fraud is in no way a serious issue. However I seem to remember it was the GOP who was involved with a firm that was fraudulently filling out voter registration forms.

Unbelievably there is a large percentage of republicans who think ACORN stole this election for Obama. The organization that hasn't been in existence for years. The organization that was accused of voter fraud in 08 but was completely cleared of any wrong doing. Breitbart and O'Keefe's extremely edited video was easily debunked. You people have no honesty or integrity.

@derp:

Please see my comment to keefus.

I am relatively new to this site, but from quite a large part of the quotes featured here (not to mention the FAQ) I could tell from the start that "Fundy" as defined by the site does not necessarily mean "religious".

So I don’t understand why every time a secular, political or even atheist fundy is quoted, a series of posts appear that cry “But they didn’t mention religion, they cannot be fundies!”.

tl;dr: RTFM ;-)

"The three sacred entitlement cows in the room that no politician wants to poke are Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid."

Well, even the Antichrist Maggie Thatcher (*spit*) knew that - to so much as touch the NHS - was electoral suicide. Seems that she'd taken heed of the previous Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath's advice.

...oh, and Iggy Pop >>>>> Ted Nugent.

Nugent is a good example of why modern conservatism is such an immoral philosophy: It's outright contempt for the unfortunate. This is literally fascism.

@ Anon-e-moose:
The modern Tory party are now privatizing the NHS.

I always thought you sucked, Ted. Now I know for sure! You are not a "guitar slayer"; never were & never will be. Greg Graffin & Mr Brett are far superior in musical talent.

You clearly did not think your little scenario through.

Someone should stuff & mount your carcass Ted.

It shouldn't take a Motown guitar slayer to come up with such an idea. And as you are, at best, a third-rate guitarist Mr. Nugent, as yet a Motown guitar slayer has not come up with such an idea.

When Jim McCarty, Wayne Kramer, or Jack White come up with such an idea, then we'll discuss the politics of a "Motown guitar slayer."

Until then, you're still just a fascist has-been seeking media blowjobs and relevancy. Good day, sir.

I thought entertainers were supposed to "shut up and sing", according to most of the conservative movement. Ah, but IOKIYAR.

Hey, shit for brains, a good chunk of that percentage payed into income tax for most of their lives and are now retired.

Another chunk of that percent belongs to people who work but don't make enough to pay into income tax.

A fascist says what?

Hey Ted, aren't you supposed to be dead or in jail soon?

This post is utter bunkum. And I hate to break it to you, Ted, but you're not a very good guitarist either.

You should just read the UDHR. And taxes, social security, and Universal healthcare help the economy.
