Bott, not bot. Proud enemy of the people. If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention. Header image from 17th Street in Birmingham, Alabama.

Lou Dobbs told viewers to “vote for your country or lose it.” Then he didn’t vote. https://t.co/SIxbGxyNO1 https://t.co/PoujuuaQuy

.@Cantonino_1: Trump & Dobbs are both frauds: both support amnesty. @ChrisMegerian is a fraud too: the last thing he'd do is reveal that Trump & Dobbs agree with him on amnesty. He's lying to you. He knows if he told you the truth he'd be out of a job.

@JamesFallows @edbott similar arguments made in favor of AMT when adopted (and also not indexed for inflation)
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 1:04 pm
@pmohme @JamesFallows I think $1 billion is a pretty good starting point, esp. in an era of low inflation.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 1:06 pm
@edbott @JamesFallows maybe so, but 65% is flat out confiscatory...and won't affect most ultra-rich who create foundations...

@pmohme @JamesFallows On the other hand, the country survived w/ higher estate tax until the 80s.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 1:07 pm
@edbott @pmohme Through most of modern history US had much higher taxes, income and estate, than now.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 1:12 pm
@JamesFallows @edbott you mean most of the 20th century...extended Depression (1930s) and stagflation (1970s) resulted.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 2:01 pm
@pmohme @jamesfallows You think that high income and estate tax rates were responsible for those economic events? Srsly?
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 2:15 pm
@edbott @JamesFallows yes, tax policy of the 1930s prolonged the Depression: https://t.co/WhGonCjo0V
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 2:18 pm
@edbott @JamesFallows similarly, higher taxes contributed to stagflation: https://t.co/BRQCZvn54t

@pmohme @jamesfallows Well, that’s a fascinating read but has nothing to do with estate taxes. It argues for indexing marginal tax rates.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 3:12 pm
@edbott @JamesFallows and refutes your assertion that tax policy did not contribute to 20th century economic malaise in the U.S...

@pmohme @jamesfallows You are aggressively misquoting me. Go back and read what I wrote again.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 3:46 pm
@edbott Probably not worth arguing w this guy, though I admire your pluck!
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 3:55 pm
@JamesFallows Agreed. Call it misplaced sympathy for a fellow UCLA alum, but good faith seems in short supply.
Fri, Sep 23, 2016 at 9:55 pm
.@edbott: nothing @JamesFallows has done or will ever do at his present rate will impact Trump in any way. Want to help him be effective?
