Here's Delong, exploding Alex Tabarrok and Steven Landsburg.
It is simply not true that "Robert Kendrick cannot be taxed." Not true at all. No, no, no, no, no.
To save you a few tedious click-throughs and the ignominy of adding to Tabarrok's and Landsburg's hit counts (I did it for you, god forgive me) here is the source document, an article in The Bay Citizen, by Elizabeth Lesly Stevens.
Yet public policy in recent years has all but conspired to allow ever greater amounts of wealth to be accumulated by a few without much benefit to the commonweal. Call me unkind for singling out Kendrick. But the great policy debates under way in Washington and Sacramento ultimately get personal: Do we take money from the pockets of the rich — heirs and magnates alike — or do we continue to dismantle everything from Head Start to the state parks system to California’s once-fabled public universities?
Clearly MS Stevens is a socialist.
But - and I mean this with the utmost sincerity - are conservatives EVER right about ANYTHING?
