Soak the Rich: Halliburton

I feel like I’ve got to start this post with an apology. If we’re going to try out Sherrod Brown’s solution to America’s $1.62 trillion 2011 budget deficit, we’ve got to soak the right rich people! I’ve tried these past seven weeks to target the worst corporations first, but I overlooked one of the evilest businesses of all…

Now Soaking: Halliburton

Fear not: this punitive tax policy won’t affect the price of oil exploration or, by extension, energy. Although a “free market” is nothing more than evil fat-cats cheating helpless saps out of money, Sheriff Sherrod’s patrolling these parts! Supply, demand, risk, cost, and reward are shadows from the dark old days.

None of Halliburton’s 60,000 employees will lose their jobs if Sherrod Brown and Barack Obama work their not-at-all-socialist magic. The funds & individuals holding Halliburton’s 915,000,000 outstanding shares of stock might suffer – but they deserve to, for investing in an evil corporation!

We, The People who support Sherrod Brown’s fiscal policies, hold these leftist conceits to be self-evident.

  1. I know that by the time I die, I'll want to make sure I did everything I could to help those least in need of my help, and that I did as little as possible to help those who lacked the privileges I was blessed to have had. Your bitching is absolutely shameful.

    • Based on your irritated tone, I'm guessing you have the solution to America's debt problems. Please, share it with the rest of us so we may continue spending trillions on entitlement programs!
