Buffett Doesn’t Get It

So the buzz is starting about Warren Buffett’s latest issuance: he’ll match any donation towards the national debt made by a Republican in Congress and he’ll go 3-to-1 with Sen. McConnell.

Think about that for a moment as it should strike you as odd.

1.  Why should there be a match?  If Buffett thinks the rich (which he includes himself in that group) should pay more taxes, then why doesn’t he just do it and then he can proclaim like the Pharisees.  Yes, the Republicans pointed out that this capability exists but they were not the ones calling for the rich to pay more.  Buffett is the one who should “put up or shut up”.

2.  Why is Buffett limiting this to republicans?  Does he not think democrats should do this?  Or that they aren’t good enough to match?  Or maybe he’s scared that the ultra-rich democrats would out-donate what he’s willing to part with (ha ha, just making myself chuckle there).    Out of the top 10 wealthiest congressmen, democrats constituted 70% with positions 3 to 9.

It is about time Mr. Buffett shut up because he’s not putting anything good up.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
