CNN founder Ted Turner told the network today he believes wealthy Americans such as himself should pay higher taxes.
Turner said he would be willing to pay "whatever is reasonable," and that it was fair for the wealthiest Americans to pay more.
"Remember, I gave most of my money away. I gave $31 million to the United States government and I didn't even ask for credit," he said, referencing the time he drew on his personal wealth to help the United States solve a dispute with the United Nations.
Turner, 74, is believed to be worth $2 billion, making him the 239th richest man in America, according to Forbes.
Turner also said Obama should make "climate change and other environmental issues a higher priority" and focus on getting rid of nuclear weapons.
This is the same Ted Turner that said it is good that US Servicemen are killing themselves. And you call Bachmann crazy???

Ted Turner tells CNN it's "good" soldiers killing themselves.

According to media mogul Ted Turner, it's "good" that U.S. soldiers are killing themselves rather than dying in combat, Human Events reported Thursday.

Turner made the announcement while speaking with CNN's Piers Morgan, Hope Hodge wrote.

"Itís time to put war and conflict behind us and move on, and start acting like civilized, educated human beings," Turner said.

"You made the point to me in the break there, more American servicemen have..." Morgan began, when Turner said, "are dying now from suicide over there than are dying in combat."

"Thatís shocking, isnít it?" Morgan asked.

"Well, what ó no, I think itís ó I think itís good"

Sociopath,

Every time you post your ignorance/stupidity/idiocy/tal king points/cut-paste/ and especially your abuses of others because Uncle Daddy did not treat you right and your Mommy, his Sister, "watched" I will post the awful truths about you that you have revealed for the past year and a half.

When you come on here like the Virus you are and Destroy the Topix of the Threads in order to make it "all about you", as you masturbate to the Puny Little Power you FEEL as you pick on the Grown-ups, and "Project" your hurt from Uncle Daddy onto strangers that simply want to enjoy conversations about Current Events.....I WILL kick you in your Fat Gut with whatever verbiage I can muster in my contempt for your existence!

Put out the Drunk Con Shaat, and the Welfare Shaat, and attempt put downs about my Family (Living and Dead) all you want.....

Until the day you Go to the Light, are incarcerated for the Abuses you have told us about Little BOI's and what you like to do to them, or leave this place on Topix where you work out your Sexuality Issues, I WILL biotch slap you with your own psychotic revelations that you put out here.

Now, don't you have a Few Million Dollars to go and trade on the NYSE from your DOJO in the Sky, before you work on that MMA Body you have going?

How do you find time to grace us here with your abuses?
