Recently, our dog eating and homosexual agenda pushing president, Barack Hussein Obama, decided to make protecting the jobs of teachers, firemen, and cops his number one goal. Now I know, just as well as you do, that the Constitution says nothing about the federal government hiring teachers, firemen, and cops, but what the heck, let's play Barry's little game, shall we ? (In other words, we're going to do the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals Shuffle and pretend that the Constitution doesn't exist.)
Ready ? (Oh, and all of you RINO hangers-on in the Romney campaign? You might want to take some notes. This is how you attack a political opponent. All of that "He's a nice guy" Sit-Down-When-They-Pee-GOP-E crap isn't going to win squat, but I digress.) Here we go:
According to those whacky "right wingers" at ABC News, Chairman Obama and the Wookie he's married to reported in their 2011 tax return that they made $789,674 dollars. They paid $162,074 in federal taxes. For those of you keeping score at home, this means the "1%er" Obamas had an effective tax rate of 20.5%. ( http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/04/president-obamas-secretary-paid-higher-tax-rate-than-he-did/ ) In other words, the Hypocrite In Chief took full advantage of deductions and rates that he has the nerve to claim that he doesn't need, because without them, Barry would have been in the highest tax bracket (35%) and would have paid $276,386 in federal taxes.
This means that $114,312 of "Obama money" didn't go into the federal coffers. Gee, I wonder, wouldn't that $114,312 have saved some fireman's job ? Wouldn't it have saved two mid-level teachers' jobs ? Wouldn't that $114,312 saved a police officer's job ? I know Barry doesn't like cops because he likes to call them stupid, as he did with the Cambridge PD, but c'mon! Where's the compassion ? Where's the love for these union workers ? Hey, for that matter, how much birth control could the $114,312 bought for Sandra Fluke and her moral-deficient friends ? How many "free" school lunches could the $114,312 have bought ? How many welfare recipients are being forced to do without because Premier Obama wanted to be a cheapskate ? Anyone in the arrogant and lazy mainstream media care to take a crack at this question ? How about you, sissies in the Romney campaign ? Wanna give it try ? No, I'm sorry, I can't hear you over these blasted crickets.
Those who live in eco-friendly glass houses......
A happy Father’s Day ping!
Just one little footnote.
The Usurper and First Wookie have, for all of their public life (escalating dramatically in the last three and a half years) lived a lifestyle several magnitudes larger than their income would indicate.
Prior to usurping the Presidency, there were the shady land deals in Illinois. (The name Tony Rezko ring a bell?) Since assuming the current (but hopefully short-lived) office, there have been an endless string of vacations, flights of fancy on Air Force One and meals that even the super rich would blush at ordering.
Then there’s the publicly funded retinue of vassals and retainers and the largest patronage army Washington has ever seen. (Those “czars” don’t work alone, dontchano.)
I could go on and on, but you get my drift. We’re talkiing multi-millions here.
Romney needs to enact some of the Gingrich strategy he's used in the primaries and we need to drive him had to make sure he hears our voice and LISTENS.
Getting him to listen is the hard part. Willard, like the rest of his RINO sisters, is too worried about what the misery pimps in the arrogant and lazy mainstream media and what naughty things they’re going to say about him. Instead of rejecting Reagan, as he did during his “independent progressive” phase, he needs to channel him. Ronaldus Magnus had the press attack him on a daily basis (even some on the Right weren’t exactly nice either, to be fair), and yet, Reagan was the most popular president in modern American history. Reagan stuck to his principles and helped usher in the greatest period of prosperity in recorded human history. Not only that, Scott Walker’s landslide win in Wisconsin shows that Conservatism is not only a winner, but it’s darn near unbeatable. Romney can’t just can’t expect the Conservative Universe to grudgingly vote for him because he isn’t the evil Obama. He still needs to earn our votes, and a sharp right turn will do just that.
Happy Father’s Day to you too.
Yes, if more journalists would open their eyes and really see and report the truth of our situation, it might not take generations to restore our country to the bastion of freedom that our founders intended.
What part of, “Conservatism always works, and Communism always fails.” don’t they understand?
Oh wait, they don’t care what works or fails. They just want to take all the wealth they can from us while they have the chance.
The press will never be a Conservative’s friend. (Just ask Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum after their psyches heal from the battering the took from the Fox Neocon Channel. Oops. There I go again, thinking out loud. Disregard.)
In my humble opinion, Conservatism is the active rejection of ideology while being in the press is an active acceptance of it. Most journalists enter journalism not because they want to ply the trade of journalism or they want to cover world and national events. No, no, no that’s soooooo 1940’s. Now, they WANT to be the news. They want to shape public opinion, mostly on orders from their leftist leaders. Many reporters see their jobs as some sort of social worker position.
Sorry for the late response. I have no idea how I missed ya!
Late responses make for slow-motion conversations. They’re not bad at all, dear.
You’re spectacularly correct with regard to the indoctrinated opinions of “the press” with regard to themselves and their goals.
At least they’ll starve with the rest of us. The leftist PTB have a history of discarding their useful idiots when they’re done with the poor little madmen.
“At least theyll starve with the rest of us.”
We the People will never starve. We’re doers. We’re thinkers. They the Progressiviks will be the ones doing the starving. They can’t think or do for themselves. To be honest, I think your average prog needs form 27-b filled out in triplicate along with an environmental study to go to the bathroom.
