Biden confuses raping the taxpayer with patriotism

Joe Biden, VP candidate, suggests that paying higher taxes would be patriotic for wealthier Americans. According to the braindead Senator:
It's time to be patriotic ... time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.
Right, because all that money they've been paying all along doesn't count as being "part of the deal." Only by paying even freaking MORE can they then be considered "patriotic." Sorry, rich folk, your previous outrageously high tax payments didn't reach the threshold of patriotism. Not even a thank you do you deserve.

How much does Biden, or Obama, make? And with this statement, is he not suggesting that neither he nor Obama have been patriotic yet?

Biden also noted:
We want to take money...
Yeah, that just about sums it the fuck up.
...and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people.
Back? Playing Robin Hood is hardly "back."

I'm all for lowering taxes on the middle class - and in general - though. But if you want to use the word "back," you should say something more like "we Senators are sorry for taxing the crap out of you America, and squandering it on worthlessness. Instead, we're going to lower your taxes, reduce government waste, and give you some of your money back in the form of rebates."

Biden acts like rich people somehow stole from the middle-class, when it's really the government that's been stealing from everybody.

Another good argument against the public funding of education

Somehow, higher education has distorted the term "academic freedom" to mean "should have taxes and student fees fund professors with absolutely no expectation that they educate or have any job performance requirements what-so-ever" as well as "they can attempt to politically indoctrinate and belittle your children all they want, with extreme bias and a complete lack of ethical behavior - GIVE ME MONEY." Taxed citizens and tuition payers of Colorado, meet the shitheadfuck you bought and paid for.

Students in an English class at Metropolitan State College in Denver have been told to assemble criticisms of GOP vice presidential candidate Gov. Sarah Palin that "undermine" her, and students say they are concerned about the apparent bias.

"This so-called 'assignment' represents indoctrination in its purist form," said Matt Barber, director of Cultural Affairs with Liberty Counsel, whose sister, Janna, is taking the class from Andrew Hallam, a new instructor at the school.

The instructor also, according to students, is harshly critical of President Bush during his classroom English presentations. He reportedly has allowed students who identify themselves as "liberal" to deride and ridicule those who identify themselves as "conservative" or Republican.

If you were a high school teacher in San Francisco, and told students to write a paper undermining Barack Obama, (or say a radio host on a PRIVATELY owned radio station) you'd be labeled a fascist who abuses his position for the unethical purposes of brainwashing. But, hey, if you're being paid by state funds, and your students are a year older, then, hey, there should be no accountability at all.
