I’ll Take “Things I Have to Shower After Doing” for $500, Alex

by Thomas L. Knapp

“The ‘Fair’ Tax is such a transparently scammy and dishonest proposal that it makes the most bizarre get rich quick schemes look like honest P&L statements from plodding, risk-averse firms that produce small but real returns. What I hate most about it is that when I have to debate it, I’m left with only two plausible conclusions about my opponents: They’re either the kind of people who look up when you tell them the word ‘gullible’ is written on the ceiling, or the kind of people who have no problem lying about what they advocate to make it not sound as bad as it is.” (10/06/21)
