Can I point something else out about the stupid pie metaphor? So, who supposedly made this static pie that we are supposedly dividing up? The government, I guess? What if I just say, screw your pie, I'm going to go over here and make my own pie. What the hell gives you the right to take away 28% or 35% or 50% of my frickin` pie that I made all by myself? Go make your own goddamn pie and get your hands out of mine!
Now, people, THAT is the argument that conservatives make (or should be making). There`s no grand, government-created, fixed-sized pie. The idea is, you make your own way and everyone else get the hell out of the way and mind your own business.

Wow. Long, rambling, pointless. I really could not see his point. He says something like "the rich think they should be able to spend their own money however they want," as if we're supposed to say, "wow, really? Those bastards, how dare they?"
mcbooz, by the way, your logic is exactly 180 degrees incorrect. Whenever you tax something, you get less of it. Tax the producers and the job creators and you`ll get less production and fewer jobs. How many more years of Obama`s crappy economy and staggering unemployment do we have to live through before people finally realize that socialism doesn`t work? I guess stupid just never does go away.

>dang007 I'm sorry, I sort of see what you mean about wanting something more substantial than a quick-to-shout slogan, but is that really the response you choose? You try to make the slogan ridiculous by taking it literally and being all sarcastic about it, right? However, in your literal retort to your literal version of the slogan, would you mind specifying in what scenario he would need to define what pie he means and what ingredients go into it? Namely, what pie do you know of that you don`t need to have more of the ingredients (ergo have to pay for more of the ingredients) to get more pie? I, myself, love pie, and am very intrigued by this concept.

Of course you have not defined what the pie is or the ingredients. But if empty slogans make you happy. Knock yourself out. If you need me to hold your hand and step by step explain the metaphor, I can.
But we both know you're smarter than that. You just want to nitpick because you don`t want to admit it`s true.
If you want more of the end result, you have to contribute more to the creation of said result.
But if nitpicking, ignoring reality, and general assholery is your thing, please don`t let me stop you.
