Occupy Wall Street planning march to terrorize little children
Actually, the dilettantes are planning to march to the homes of rich people like Rupert Murdoch and David Koch so I doubt that there would be little children to terrorize.
But do you think it would stop them if there were?
A "Millionaires March" will visit the homes - or, more realistically, the gleaming marble lobbies - of five of the city's wealthiest residents, including News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, JPMorgan ChaseCEO Jamie Dimon and conservative billionaire David Koch.
Marchers want to present the moguls with oversize checks to dramatize how much less they will pay when New York State's 2% tax on millionaires expires in December.
"Ninety-nine percent of the residents of New York are going to suffer from this tax giveaway so the 1% who already live in absolute luxury can put more money in their pockets," said Doug Forand, one of the march organizers.
"This is fiscally, economically and morally wrong."
Gov. Cuomo staunchly opposes calls from his fellow Democrats to renew the tax, which generates up to $5 billion per year in much-needed revenue. He says he fears the rich will move away.
Cuomo's not as dumb as his liberal friends. Someone - probably a conservative - whispered in his ear that even rich people have a limit on how much in taxes they are willing to pay. Not the Kochs, or the Murdochs but the the pedestrian "rich" who pay astronomical prices to live and work in New York city but would give it up if it got any more expensive.
And it's not a tax "giveaway." It was a temporary measure passed during the initial budget crisis. Funny how liberals see property not their own in a proprietary manner.
