Just today, I reminded someone that back in the '50s the US would tax the rich at 91% - at that was under Eisenhower (admittedly, not as right-wing as the Republicans who'd follow him, but still...).
I'm already rolling my eyes thinking of all the Fortune 500 companies that are gonna get tax-payer stimulus money... again.
The absence of /rants makes me sad. I'm sure there are reasons.
