Stephen King Writes In Favor Of Higher Taxes On The Rich
An essay Stephen King wrote for Newsweek's Daily Beast--in which he argues the rich should pay more taxes and excoriates Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney--is causing no shortage of consternation, on the internet.
Here's the whole piece: Tax Me, for F@%&’s Sake!
In a very vulgar--and very funny--treatise, King doesn't hold back, especially against his detractors:
Tough shit for you guys, because I’m not tired of talking about it. I’ve known rich people, and why not, since I’m one of them? The majority would rather douse their dicks with lighter fluid, strike a match, and dance around singing ‘Disco Inferno’ than pay one more cent in taxes to Uncle Sugar.
And while the post is a great rallying cry for the 99 percent, the 1 percent ain't too thrilled.

How the person that wrote this poorly researched piece of garbage Monday could in any way be related to the genius - yes, I said genius - that totally enthralled and captivated me with 11/23/63 boggles my mind.
What do you folks think about King's diatribe?
