Mr. Bernie Sanders, Your Anger Is Contagious

June 30, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Bernie Sanders, This is a history lesson. Perhaps in hindsight you will gain some personal insight into your behavior and its repercussions. You see, Bernie, not only is blame contagious, but anger is too. Look at the protests and attacks and violence that plagued the campaign trail. And most of the physical violence has been instigated by your followers. […]

$19 Trillion in Debt is NOT Wealth

June 20, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Bernie Sanders, Why are you spreading this utterly false rumor that the United States is rich? Do you even realize that we’re in debt? According to the US Debt clock, our national debt is 19.3 TRILLION and counting. $59,555 per person. PER PERSON, BERNIE! That’s what our government has committed each and every one of us to: $59,555. And […]

Hey Bernie, We’ve got a new presentation for you. It’s simple, under two minutes, and all about the BOIYDs. It’s so cool and exciting we gave it its own page and its own spot on the menu. Have a look. We think you might like it.

Really, Seattle? Locals Only Income Tax? Good Luck.

Hey Seattle, We hear that already your proposed tax on locals has been encountering some resistance. We feel for you. Once BOIYDism becomes entrenched, it’s hard to remove. We have a proposal. A graduated tax, since that’s the only Fair kind, and we’ll make it like the U.S. Government’s post Obamacare tax rates — we’ll tax the middle class a […]

Full Disclosure

Hey, Bernie, We’re all about clean air. Heck, we’re even riding unicycles. With packs on our backs. But as our recent review of your tax return indicates, you are indeed a BOIYD. And that assessment is based on only one year. It’s interesting that you didn’t release five years, or eight. We’re sure you’ve got gobs of reasons. We’re sure […]

Bernie the BOIYD

May 24, 2016 Jon Seliot 1

Hey Bernie, We’ve coined a term in your honor. BOIYD. It’s pronounced ‘boid’, Bernie. Say it. Hear it. Bernie the BOIYD. It’s got a nice ring, doesn’t it? And what, you’re asking, does BOIYD stand for? BUT ONLY IF YOU DO You’re familiar with this behavior. It’s about people who preach for action but don’t actually do it. Some call […]

But Only If You Do

May 20, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Bernie, We saw your 2014 tax return. You made over $200,000. What we find fascinating about your tax return, but not surprising given how much you spout against greed, is the amount of your itemized deductions. You took $56,000 in deductions. The median household income in the U.S is approximately $53,500 Yes, Bernier Sanders, you took more in deductions […]
