Yet another reason I don’t think much of limousine liberals….
By now, you’ve heard that Lucasfilm has been sold to The Walt Disney Corporation for $4.05 billion dollars. However, what you may not realize is that this also means that George Lucas thinks that the Force is with Barack Obama and in six days, he will win re-election as President of the United States. Why? Because of what will happen on January 1st.
That’s the day when the Bush Tax Cuts are scheduled to expire. Right now, the current rate on income from corporate dividends and long-term capital gains is 15 percent. With the Bush cuts gone, those numbers would jump to 39.6 percent on dividends and 20 percent on gains.
Lucas doesn’t believe in “capitalist democracy” until it affects his bottom line. Isn’t that how it normally seems to work with liberals?
