A Request

This has virtually no chance of acceptance in this forum, but what the hell.

We might want to retire the phrase "class warfare" so long as we have something like 200,000 troops deployed in ACTUAL wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Your brothers and sisters are occupying squalid countries so you don't have to, and they're having to dodge IEDs daily and some of them die almost every single day.

So the idea that the rich, the poor, the middle class, or anybody, is suffering "warfare" because they're being targeted in tax brackets... is not to have the best grip on perspective, I'd say.

If you want to make the argument that a class is being prejudiced against, or discriminated against, or unfairly targeted in your opinion... we can have that conversation.

But during times of war, the phrase "warfare" (as well as ALL war language) should be retired in respect to our brothers and sisters deployed for our protection.

They think it's somehow comparable to slavery, so I doubt the war metaphor bothers them much.

Taxes. I've heard BEP and Taco, among others make that comparison repeatedly.

Does that mean we can't talk about the War on Drugs too?
Even the War on Poverty, the War on Literacy ( or should that be anti-Literacy)?

Sorry "Class Warfare" is just an idiom for being against wealthy individuals.
And our troops being in squalid countries, well, they don't belong there. Bring 'em home.

The tea bagger stuff is just namecalling. Who cares if someone calls someone else a mean name.

Labeling folks as terrorists, held hostage stuff... that's a valid point you bring up.

LOL!

Please stop calling it warfare as we attack and destroy the economy. Can we call it something that doesn't bring to mind devastation and destitution - like how about "fairness?"

There's plenty of emotionally charged, incendiary language that you can demagogue with.

Out of respect for your brothers and sisters that actually have to endure ACTUAL warfare, we might want to consider retiring a term to describe taxes.

I'm sure that our troops really welcome your request to protect them from virtual/verbal bullets, Direckshun.

I'm asking that we exercise perspective. That's kind of the whole point.
