    Song lyrics now drive policy. Got it.
    Nobody said it was policy you tool.  You asked where it came from, I showed you.  

    Jeezus.  Pile on won't you...
    k, but you can see why people were confused by your argument against something that was never argued, right?

    AOC is punk.
    That she's not...

    I'd give her pop punk at best.  Maybe New Wave?  But not punk...

    Interesting story.  Biafra was supposedly given a BMW for his wedding but refused to drive it.  That is punk.

    I quoted it.  Following the thread it was pretty easy to see but I guess not.  People only read into what they want.  Time to take a break here before assumptions start falling from the sky again...

    you didn't just quote it. you commented on it, seemingly refuting a policy idea. that was all. no reason to take it personally. I just understand the confusion.

    I disagree w taxing them until we are all on the same playing field.  You need diversity.  Remove that and then creativity dies, corruption blossoms.

    I don't see what is wrong with a 2% increase across the board on the rich though.  It's just enough to kick the bees nest and not get stung too bad.

    Fax I understand what you are saying.  I apologize.  I'll  play nice.

    Bit confused with your use of diversity here. Do you mean a wide range of socioeconomic status? Not sure how that promotes creativity and limits corruption. Quite the opposite, really. Wealth inequality is growing and the racial wealth divide is anything but diverse.
    If you tax a person until they aren't rich anymore does no good for anyone.  That is pretty much communism.  You need economic diversity, yes.

    The racial wealth is bad, we all know this.  Taking from someone else until they don't have it anymore won't go over well.  
    There is not one person declaring that we "should take from someone else until they don't have it anymore." At least that I know of. Maybe link to them or their statement(s), policy, etc.

    This was what I have been referring to and quoted that I disagreed with.
    well I think she was just saying it made her think of a song. she wasn't advocating for that as policy. at least that's not how I took it. 
    Yes. That is what I was saying. The phrase immediately put that song in my head. I was not agreeing with it as policy. I didn't mean to start a whole thing :s

    I know that, we all did. I was commenting on the lyric itself.
