'nuff said

Ineptocracy (in-ept-o-cra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

...which eventually leads to an 'Idiocracy,' and you would have to see the movie for details on all of that.

Or, according to an old Transylvanian saying, 'in the land of the blind, the one-eyed man would be king.'

Opus #6 said...

Liberals aspire to this. They won't admit it because the truth hurts.

Ducky's here said...

And over it all -- The 9-9-9 plan and President Pizza Man.

"And over it all -- The 9-9-9 plan and President Pizza Man."

only if we get lucky, Ducky.

Fredd....idiocracy, indeed.

Opus, you can see for yourself what one liberal thinks :-)

see you all later.

Synonym of socialism, democratic socialism, etc...

Proof of that: the French socialist thought that reducing the legal number of hour worked per week would create jobs.

Talk about ineptitude.

Ducky's here said...

I'd pass on Idiocracy and grab Being There.

Ducky's here said...

Why wouldn't it create jobs.

Workers work fewer hours but maintain spending. Hire to maintain demand, create more spending and you get a multiplier effect.

Elmers Brother said...

no you get more union workers who get paid more to do less

Dave Miller said...

Z, really? You like the 999 plan? Wouldn't that put sales tax in LA County at almost 18% on everything you buy aside from food?

Do us middle class folks really need to pay more taxes through a plan like that?

Ducky's here said...

Dave, you have doubts about the 9-9-9 plan?

Yeah you get a 9%VAT (you don't think Pizza Man is really taxing corporations) + a 9% national sales tax + local sales tax/

What's not to like.

The fringe right has been supporting upward income transfer for some time. The 9-9-9 plan really kicks it into overdrive.

Of course the wealthiest pay next to nothing. The tax on dividends and capital gains is eliminated, But since the working and middle classes have had their purchasing power eroded and demand is going to be in the crapper, they'll create jobs. And the right believes that.

The only demand will be government spending and you want to cut that back so enjoy the depression.

I guess Ducky that you are inept yourself.

Simplification, which is often a trait of socialists, class warfare and other marxist theories, leads to ineptitude.

1/ Reducing # of hours = less money. If you force higher salaries for less hours, then you kill businesses.
2/ It's a HR nightmare. And it has been when France switched to the 35hr workweek.
3/ It had been tried when Rocard forced the 39-hr workweek and it didn't work either.

Oftentimes ineptitude comes with a strong sense of denial of one's mistakes.

Anonymous said...

Forgot to mention, reducing the # of hours worked doesn't take into account the job market and what it offers in terms of skill set.

If I need to hire 1 more worker but the market doesn't offer the skill set, then it's another nightmare.

Nice usage of the word multiplier.

Sometimes your sentence sound really smart but the content is really dumb.

I hope your art writing is not like that.

MK said...

Well said, describes liberals and the moron they elected to a tee.

Elmers Brother said...

Well duhkkky Obama has tried to insist that everyone has skin in the game...which is why a consumption tax seems more fair to me.

Ducky's here said...

A spending multiplier is a common standard term in economics, Frog.

You really shouldn't sass your betters.

Anonymous said...

That's my point Ducky. You spend your time glorifying yourself with the usage of terms to sound smart but your substance is dumb.

In French we have a say for people like you. We say they masturbate the flies.

By the way, simplicity and clarity are often the trait of great minds, Ducky. Not convoluted sentences whose goal is to please the writer's ego or to pretend he is part of some kind of intellectual elite. That's the paradox of Marxists. They criticize the bourgeoisie and portray themselves as the defender of the people when their prose and actions are full of despise for the simple man.

Dave said: "Do us middle class folks really need to pay more taxes through a plan like that?"

The arithmetic is so easy only an idiot can do it, except Ducky. You see, Dave, in all the flat tax proposals your 35% income tax goes away, as does your Social Security and medicare taxes. It is all replaced by a simple consumption tax.

That is fair to everyone.

The propaganda is that even though poor folks will pay less, the Party of Maximum Envy will claim that the rich get a tax break. Those fools could screw up a free lunch.

A consumption tax may be seen as regressive, but Cain's 999 is calculated to avoid that. Even so, those people need to pay something to have some skin in the game.

Note that the Party of Maximum Envy has had NO plan to modernize the tax system, and continues to institute job killing policies in the name of social justice, or some other contrived idea.

Elmers Brother said...

You see for duhkky "fair" I'd a weasel word. Its capricious on its face because "fair" just means more. More than what the producers are paying now will never be enough to duhkkkster because the minute the gubmint can't afford another social program duhkkky want to stick his hand in your wallet again.

Elmers Brother said...

"fair" is a weasel word

Anonymous said...

Good explanation of the Bush administration.

Z said...

Dave, not sure enough about 999 yet....but I'm definitely leaning that way.
But Cain? Yes, if I were a thinking AMerican, I'd consider it a compliment that he was president of a large company; I'm not an elitist who thinks pizza's beneath us.
Gad, how lofty is a community organizer, for goodness sake? :-)
by the way, Dave...does that definition in my post make no
Kind of scary, though very American, that so many people who pay no tax are calling the shots...it's almost nonsensical, really.

I was listening to Mark Levin tonight in the car and he was slamming some conservative candidates a little and I thought "Man, what did OBAMA HAVE that they don't have?" cracks me up! We forget he was such a nothing.

Z said...

liberaldude; then you didn't read it properly or maybe didn't understand it?

Anonymous said...

Yes liberaldude saw the word 'inept' and missed the definition of ineptocracy, which shows his own reading ineptitude. That's why he's a lib. Can't go beyond the surface of things.

Z said...

FB...it's the lib mantra "BUSH BUSH BUSH"

Anonymous said...

Definition of a drone.

Some people will keep saying 'Bush bush bush' even if Obama is re-elected.

It's like a raison d'etre for them.

Ducky's here said...

Tickle me Elmo, when did I use the word fair.

I'd make out like a bandit under the 9-9-9 plan. However, I have enough sense to recognize something that will eventually damage the nation severely.

Unlike Calvinists like yourself I am concerned about community an country.

sue hanes said...

Come on Z - I didn't google it but you made up that word and definition - didn't you?

Pretty good. :)

Ticker said...

Now tell me Duckass just what is wrong with this other than the fact that you are a friggin socialist and it will kill all the useless programs so dearly loved by you fools.

9-9-9 Plan: Summary

* Removes all payroll taxes and unites all tax payers
* Provides the least incentive to evade taxes and the fewest opportunities to do so
* Lifts a $430 billion dead-weight burden on the economy due to compliance, enforcement, collection, etc…
* Is fair, simple, efficient, neutral, and transparent
* Ends nearly all deductions and special interest favors
* Features zero tax on capital gains and repatriated profits
* Exports leave our shores without the Business Tax or the Sales Tax embedded in their cost, making them world class competitive. Imports are subject to the same taxation as domestically produced goods, leveling the playing field.
* Lowest marginal rates on production
* Kills the Death Tax
* Allows immediate expensing of business investments
* Eliminates double taxation of dividends
* Increases capital formation which aids capital availability for small businesses
* Increased capital per worker drives productivity and wage growth
* Features a platform to launch properly structured Empowerment Zones to renew our inner cities
* The pro-growth, pro-job, pro-export economic policies of the 9-9-9 PLAN equals a strong dollar policy

Phase 2 – The Fair Tax

Amidst a backdrop of the economic renewal created by the 9-9-9 Plan, I will begin the process of educating the American people on the benefits of continuing the next step to the Fair Tax.

* Ultimately replaces individual and corporate income taxes
* Ends the IRS as we know it and repeals the 16th Amendment

Z said...

Sue, thanks for thinking I'm a genius :-)
No, I didn't write that!

Ducky, your insults are getting fever pitched again and it stops or you go. It's making you sound dumb, to boot.

Bob said...

Z: You need to recruit another class of liberal commenters. The present ones are outclassed, and tend to drool and spill their coffee on their shirts while they mumble their incoherent DNC talking points.

Bob said...

Wow! Ducky said something intelligent. She said, "I'd make out like a bandit under the 9-9-9 plan. "

Good catch, dude. We would all make out like bandits, and the Federal Government would not suffer with less revenue as calculated with super secret mathematical equations that liberals do not grok.

I am proud of you, and am tempted to retract my advice to Z that she find a new set of liberal commenters.

Make us all proud.

Z said...

Bob, you're the best :-)

I've known Ducky now through the blogosphere for about twelve years, I think.......he's never going to change.

BLOGOSPHERE, as in the sentence above, always gets a red squiggly line under it like it's misspelled...and that always cracks me up.
To me, it's like being in Webster's Dictionary and having DICTIONARY come up misspelled, you know?
We're ON the blogosphere and the blogosphere tells me I'm spelling it wrong?
Well...I can't explain what I'm trying to say...maybe you get the drift?!!!

Elmers Brother said...

When did you use the word "fair"?

It's implied in this statement and parroted by all the libs.

Of course the wealthiest pay next to nothing

Elmers Brother said...

aren't you in essence saying it's unfair what the rich are paying?

bore me later

Elmers Brother said...

Unlike Calvinists like yourself I am concerned about community an country.

and the only thing you know about Calvinism is what Max Weber taught you and he misunderstood it all along.

Elmers Brother said...

btw duhkkky your Calvanist cabal conspiracy theory is really getting old...perhaps it's time for a new tin foil hat.

Elmers Brother said...

Of course the wealthiest pay next to nothing

You're a freaking liar anyway

Elmers Brother said...

of course Duhkkky is the same guy that didn't know the difference between Pan-Arabism and Pan-Islamism.

Z said...

Elbro; I'm so glad you're here with that information...and the comments.

Sometimes, I honestly get the feeling Ducky actually feels like he's right :-)

Z said...

And, really, I don't like being mean to anybody; even Ducky.
but......oh, well :-)

Leticia said...

Excellent description of the liberals. May have to post this on my wall on Facebook.

Z said...

by the way, liberaldude; you don't have a blog; are you one of the ones who'll be paid this year to stop by conservative blogs with insults?
It happens every election season. Will you also be calling into Conservative talk radio with the others....saying (I love this one!) "I USED to vote Republican, but I JUST CAN'T ANYMORE because......"?
Thank GOODNESS people are on to the paid shills..........
you one of them?? just curious$$$$

beamish said...

We need Kakistocracy, rule by the worst possible members of society.

Who does the media say are the worst?
