I think this video does a good job of explaining the stupidity of the "tax the rich" liberals.

yeah it's probably been posted at least twice.

The only thing it's really good for is illustrating just how big the number is.  If you notice, he takes all the ad revenue from every Super Bowl ever, and every penny of revenue from Star Wars...since the 1970s.  Obviously you can't go back in time.  He also recounts things and misses things...for example, he takes all the salaries of all players in the NFL, MLB, NBA, and the NHL, but then takes 100% of everything everyone makes above $250, for a lot of players, that would be taking their money twice.  He then takes 100% of everything from the Forbes 400...again, looting them twice, which isn't possible in reality.

I'm not even sure he and Iowa Hawk really realized they were doing this, but I would like to hope they did.

And also the fact that the next year, they cant take that same amount of money again, since most of it has been saved up over time.
