Oh No!

Well, it looks like we're gonna have another civil war. And it must be true, because they said so on Fox News, which is fair and balanced.

But that's what happens, apparently, when those awful liberals ask rich people to pay more in taxes. Who woulda thunk it? The rabble taking up torches and pitchforks to protest Steve Forbes' tax rate, just like they did when Eisenhower was President and they paid 90%?

They didn't protest? Well, never mind. Who wants to go back to that economy anyway?

Americans enjoyed a strong, expanding economy under Eisenhower, demonstrated by solid economic growth, little inflation, and low unemployment. Balancing the budget was an Eisenhower priority tempered with a sincere concern for the common good. Eisenhower expanded social security, increased the minimum wage, and established the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW).

Sounds just awful. Thank goodness we had Fox News and GW Bush to set things straight.
