I, deficit hawk

Social media these days are dominated by three words. If we had a lick of sense, we would put those words to some actual work instead of having to wallow in virtue-signaling.

Hence this proposal. Use of the word “hate” should be charged to the user at $1.00 per utterance, proceeds to go to the United States Treasury.

Charge $2.00 for “fascist” and $2.50 for “Nazi,” and the national debt will be gone in two years. Count on it.

Possible side effect: Some people whose vocabulary extends no farther might actually have to leave the country. Like that’s a problem.

    If I thought a little bit about it, I could probably come up with a couple others I’d like a surcharge on. Or at least a couple phrases.

    I have several.

    I’d also like to charge @POTUS a five-spot per tweet.
