Fiorina weirdly mocked for 3-page tax code idea: Carl Quintanilla thinks 73,000 pages is normal

CNBC debate

Last night I was talking to my sister about how strange it is for Americans to put up with federal regulations that would be worthy of a revolution in another place and time. She astutely pointed to CNBC’s debate on Wednesday as an example of normalized madness. In Carl Quintanilla’s world, it is perfectly acceptable to have a 73,000-page tax code. A woman who thinks it can and should be simplified to three pages is the one who should be ridiculed.

Fiorina: We now have a 73,000-page tax code. There have been more than 4,000 changes to the tax plan since 2001 alone. There are loads of great ideas, great conservative ideas, from wonderful think tanks, about how to reform the tax code. The problem is, we never get it done.

Quintanilla: You want to bring the 70,000 pages to 3. Is that using really small type?”

The premise of Quintanilla’s smarmy joke is that it is reasonable to have a tax code closing in on 100,000 pages long. Over 4,000 changes to said tax code over the course of two U.S. presidents is also considered sane.

Carly is the sane woman in an insane world, which sadly makes her insane.

Who benefits from a 73,000-page tax code? Answer: It’s not “the little guy,” who Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton all claim to represent.

The “little guy” is the one who does not have an army of lawyers at his disposal to cut through bureaucratic red tape. Bernie Sanders need complex rules and regulations because – for all his rhetoric about making “billionaires” pay for all the world’s ills — it is hard-working families who end up shouldering the costs.

Last year I hired a tax professional to make sure I handled my family’s payments properly. I was 95 percent sure I correctly filled out all my paperwork, but it is always written in a way where you never reach the 100 percent mark. Jargon only a professional tax-preparer can understand makes honest Americans wonder if they’re going to get a letter from the IRS ten months later demanding money.

My name is not Donald Trump. My name is not Hillary Clinton. I do not have the resources at this time to navigate an endless maze of tax laws. My guess is that most of the people reading this blog are in the same boat. Yet it is Carly Fiorina who is mocked for an idea that would a.) increase individual liberty while b.) making our lives exponentially easier each tax season.

Carl Quintanilla, we are all dumber for listening to you moderate CNBC’s Republican debate. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Feminism, ‘The View’-style: Michelle Collins, Joy Behar mock Fiorina’s face

Carly Fiorina CNBC debate

The great thing about modern “feminists” with a microphone is that they regularly discredit their own brand of feminism. Take the women of “The View,” for instance. They spent Thursday cackling with each other over the face of Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.

Collins: She looked demented! Her mouth did not downturn one time.  **audience claps and laughs**

Behar: I wish it was a Halloween mask. I’d love that.

Let us flashback to Sept. 10, when they got up on a moral pedestal to lecture Donald Trump for doing the same thing.

Behar: “You talked about Carly Fiorina in Rolling Stone magazine, and you said, “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? Are you making fun of her looks, Donald? Because I know you don’t like it…”

Trump: “Not at all, no. I’m talking about the persona, Joy. …”

Behar: “Then why don’t you talk about her brains instead of her face?” **audience claps**

It is interesting how that works: When the (liberal) women of “The View” lecture a man on disparaging a woman’s physical appearance, they are applauded. When the (liberal) women of “The View” say mean and disgusting things about a woman’s physical appearance, they are applauded.

Telling.

Here’s a pop quiz: Do you know who treats women the worst in America?

Answer: Other women.

It is highly ironic watching Joy Behar — caked with 10 pounds of makeup to look her best — say Carly Fiorina’s face looks like a Halloween mask. If you put a mole on Joy’s nose and a broom between her legs, would she look like a witch? You decide.

Here we have Michelle Collins — after professional makeup artists got her ready for television. What would she look like without makeup? Use your imagination.

Finally, we have Whoopi Goldberg of “rape-rape” infamy.

These “feminists” do not care about treating women right as much as they care about getting congratulated for whatever they say and do.

When they tear down another woman — they want to cheered. When they chastise a man for tearing down another woman — they wanted to be cheered. They have zero moral authority, and should be relentlessly called out on their hypocrisy every time it rears its ugly head.
