The best stuff ever published by him was when he was a struggling writer and had editors that would reign back his excessively verbose bullshit and hold it to a concise and compelling story.
Now he's so full of himself that he tells publishers what they'll publish.
Which is why I haven't liked a book by him since the original "the Stand".
Everything after has been tedious and boring......I fall asleep before I get to the point of his sentences.
Of course now that he thinks he's all that as a writer he obviously thinks he's qualified to determine tax policy.
Stephen King:Tax Me for F---'s Sake!
Chris Christie may be fat, but he ain’t Santa Claus. In fact, he seems unable to decide if he is New Jersey’s governor or its caporegime, and it may be a comment on the coarsening of American discourse that his brash rudeness is often taken for charm. In February, while discussing New Jersey’s newly amended income-tax law, which allows the rich to pay less (proportionally) than the middle class, Christie was asked about Warren Buffett’s observation that he paid less federal income taxes than his personal secretary, and that wasn’t fair. “He should just write a check and shut up,” Christie responded, with his typical verve. “I’m tired of hearing about it. If he wants to give the government more money, he’s got the ability to write a check—go ahead and write it.”
Heard it all before. At a rally in Florida (to support collective bargaining and to express the socialist view that firing teachers with experience was sort of a bad idea), I pointed out that I was paying taxes of roughly 28 percent on my income. My question was, “How come I’m not paying 50?” The governor of New Jersey did not respond to this radical idea, possibly being too busy at the all-you-can-eat cheese buffet at Applebee’s in Jersey City, but plenty of other people of the Christie persuasion did.
Cut a check and shut up, they said.
If you want to pay more, pay more, they said.
Tired of hearing about it, they said.
Tough shit for you guys, because I’m not tired of talking about it. I’ve known rich people, and why not, since I’m one of them? The majority would rather douse their dicks with lighter fluid, strike a match, and dance around singing “Disco Inferno” than pay one more cent in taxes to Uncle Sugar. It’s true that some rich folks put at least some of their tax savings into charitable contributions. My wife and I give away roughly $4 million a year to libraries, local fire departments that need updated lifesaving equipment (Jaws of Life tools are always a popular request), schools, and a scattering of organizations that underwrite the arts. Warren Buffett does the same; so does Bill Gates; so does Steven Spielberg; so do the Koch brothers; so did the late Steve Jobs. All fine as far as it goes, but it doesn’t go far enough.
What a jerk right?
And there's more of that kind of condescending, talk down to the ignorant masses kind of rhetoric.
Which just shows how clueless Stephen King, the bloated hack writer, truly is.
He doesn't realize what the majority of conservatives already know....to the government being wealthy is a relative concept.
While King sits there at his keyboard spewing righteous indignation over the fact that he feels he and others aren't robbed by the government enough the rest of us know what the real score is.
After "Uncle Sugar" sucks the life out of the rich he'll set his sights on the almost rich, then the well to do after which the "comfortable" get the democrats attention and then they'll seize everyones "disposable" income.
You see Stephen, it isn't about the fact that the government doesn't have enough money, it's about the fact that they piss it away and then demand more.
If you're willing to allow them to do that to your labor, effort and intellect then obviously you don't think much of your work.
So why should any of the rest of us?
