I’m pretty sure Godwin’s Law should be modified a bit for politicians. Anytime a politician makes a comparison to terrorists the argument should be considered over and the politician who made the comparison should be considered the loser of the debate. Apparently opposing an increase in taxes is something that should land you on one of the terrorist watch lists according to Mike Doyle and Joe Biden:
Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.
“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”
Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists.”
Well if my name isn’t already on one or several of your watch lists you better toss it on because I oppose any increase of taxes on any person (I don’t give a shit if it’s the “rich” or “poor” who get the increase, I oppose it). I also love Biden’s other comment:
Earlier in the day, Biden told Senate Democrats that Republican leaders have “guns to their heads” in trying to negotiate deals.
How do you like the taste of your own medicine asshole? The government enforces all of their laws, rules, and regulations by putting guns to the heads of American citizens. You bastards on Capitol Hill make it very clear that if us serfs violate one of your innumerable laws you’ll use force against us. Hell according to Joe Biden that must make himself and every other member of our government a terrorist.
