DUmmie FUnnies 01-06-13 (DUmmie Self-Deletes After Rush Spotlights His 'Taxing' Post)
DUmmie FUnnies ^ | January 6, 2013 | Rush Limbaugh, DUmmies, & PJ-Comix

Posted on 01/06/2013 9:28:26 AM PST by PJ-Comix

On Thursday evening I received a Facebook message from my friend, Henry Louis Gomez, who writes at the BABALU BLOG. He sent me a link to this DUmmie THREAD about a DUmmie whining over the fact that the new 2013 taxes took an intolerable chunk out of his paycheck after the beginning of the year. I thought it was quite ironic what with the DUmmies calling for higher taxes yet now whining about it so I told Henry I would probably DUFU it after I got done DUFUing the DUmmies supporting Al Gorezeera's HYPOCRISY.

Well, the next day (Friday) I am out doing some heavy duty couponing when suddenly I heard Rush Limbaugh talking about that very DUmmie thread on the car radio. Fortunately, Rush posted a transcript of what he said on his WEBSITE:

This is hilarious. As you know, ladies and gentlemen, beginning with the first day of the year, and because of the fiscal cliff deal, the temporary partial tax cut on the Social Security tax expired. There was a temporary partial exemption on the payroll tax. I've been asked if most people noticed it. They didn't notice it until they were told about it. It added up to, depending on your income, it could be a thousand dollars a year that you had extra because of this partial tax. Anyway, on January 1, that partial temporary tax cut expired, and now everybody's payroll taxes are back up to 100% of what it should be, which is 13%. The employer pays half and the employee pays half. The employee pays it all but that's too complicated even for people who understand the economy.

Anyway, here's the thing, what happened here. The first paychecks for the new year for some people have gone out and they have noticed that their paychecks are smaller. And somebody went to Democrat Underground, somebody got the idea to go there and just troll and look around, and one of the first posts in Democrat Underground last night was this: "What happened that my Social Security withholding's in my paycheck just went up? My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don't feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?"

The average Democrat who was out there applauding the tax increase on the rich discovered smaller take-home pay in his first paycheck. What the hell happened? So he looked into it and he found out that his payroll tax is now gone back up to what it should have been all along, the temporary partial deduction expired, and his take-home pay is less. He thought only millionaires and billionaires are gonna be paying more in taxes. We tried to warn everybody here that the middle class was gonna have a tax increase because the payroll tax deduction expired, and it was going back to full boat, 6.2% employee pay, 6.2 employer pay. The 6.2 employee payment was 4.2 for the last year or two. But now it's back up to 6.2, which is gonna mean, depending on your income level, somebody making $75,000 a year, it's $1500 a year taken out of their paycheck that has not been in the past two years.

Anyway, this began a thread at Democrat Underground with all kinds of ticked off Democrats, livid Democrats, and what was hilarious about it was that over half of them were blaming George Bush for it, when it was Obama. It was all Obama! Obama and the Democrats engineered -- and the Republicans went along with this -- the payroll tax cut, which was a temporary partial tax cut on the employee side, but it was restored with the fiscal cliff deal. So paychecks beginning this year, first week of the year, are smaller. And you should see the thread of all these ticked off Democrats who had no idea they were gonna be paying more in taxes. And as part of the thread, there are people trying to explain to them what happened, and some of them understand it, and some of them don't, but they're all livid.

They're fit to be tied. And then they resort, it's probably Bush's fault, they think. They think that Bush has come back from four years of a presidency that's expired to bite them. And they're livid over it. It's a classic illustration. You talk about low-information voters. You talk about people have no clue. You talk about people that support things they have no idea what they're doing in terms of harming themselves by virtue of what they support. The Democrat Underground: what happened that my Social Security withholding and my paycheck just went up? This guy had no idea. And it's a long thread. I don't know how long it is now.

Shortly after Rush exposed this unintentionally hilarious DUmmie thread on the air, the author, DUmmie NCTraveler, self-deleted it. Too late, Dummie! The rest of your thread remains and your self-deleted stupidity has been preserved forever for all eternity for everybody to see and laugh at. So let us now watch the DUmmies react by blaming Bush for their increased taxes in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who finds that it pays to remain tuned to Rush while couponing, is in the [brackets]

This message was self-deleted by its author

[Too late, DUmmie NCTraveler, your post has been trapped forever in broadcast amber by El Rushbo so we shall now reproduce it below in all its hilariously pathetic glory...]

What happened that my Social Security withholding's in my paycheck just went up? My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don't feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?

[What happened is you revealed your self-deleted stupidity in thinking only taxes for the riiiiiiich would go up. And now for the undeleted reactions from the other DUmmies...]

The temporary 2% payroll tax cut expired.

[BUSH'S FAULT!!!]

There is no trust fund, separate fund, lockbox, whatever. It goes into the same pot as income taxes. Pretending that FICA is dedicated to Social Security does not make it true. Again, FICA goes into the general fund. What we have here, boys and girls, is a genuine tax increase on the "middle class".

[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]

that is not a tax increase, it is finally allowing a temporary bu$h tax cut to expire.

[BUSH'S FAULT!!!]

It went back to what it was 2 years ago. The temporary payroll tax "holiday" expired - it was supposed to do last year but was extended.

[BUSH'S FAULT!!!]

Pretty sizable chunk of change. Almost a weeks worth of groceries. And I am in no way making lots of money.

[Have you ever thought about using coupons, DUmmie NCTraveler? If my memory serves me right, just after I heard Rush read your self-deleted post on the air, I picked up two cans of clam chowder, 2 cans of chicken & sausage gumbo, and 2 cups of sliced cling peaches for FREE via coupons. I don't think my food budget is over $5 per week. Of course, couponing requires a minimum level of intelligence which disqualifies you.]

$1000 divided by 52 weeks is about $20 per week. Doesn't buy a lot of groceries. But it isn't nothing.

[It buys me more food than we need for the week with $15 left over to buy more coupons.]

$86 a month is a lot. That would pay for.... Groceries for a week, as someone said. More than what I pay for parking every month, after my employer's contribution to that.

[I saved about $60 in parking fees via coupons since September. The local newspapers often have peelie coupons for FREE Swap Shop coupons. Since Sunday parking there can reach $5 and since I go about twice per week, it all adds up. Oh, and I love seeing the other folks shelling out five dollar bills while I just hand them a small piece of coupon paper to get my FREE space.]

Your taxes went up because the leaders need to dig us out of this criminal deficit hole we are in which has been caused because taxes were too low during the Bush years. Everyone has to help by spreading the wealth around a little. Power to the correct people!

[BUSH'S FAULT!!!]

Power to the correct people!

[Gotta remember that line. Too FUnnie!!!]

I have scant experience with 'weekly payroll' jobs.

[The Maynard G. Krebs branch of the DUmmies weighs in.]

Does anyone think congress will extend the payroll tax holiday at some point?

[Too embarrassed to just ask for LOWER TAXES?]

2% sounds small. $92 isn't small.

[Welcome to the cruel world of simple math, DUmmie NCTraveler. BTW, 2013 just started but you are already well on your way to being voted the DUmmie of the Year.]

Would a 100% estate tax do away for the need for an income tax?

[No. It would only encourage the government to confiscate ALL private property.]

money show up in ym bank abt 7 am tomorrow but I got statement from my employer today. I'm $112 shorter than with the holiday.

[BUSH'S FAULT!!!]

. Hey, National Review linked your post

[So did Rush. Hee! Hee!]

RUSH LIMBAUGH just read this letter on air. Be careful what you write here. The Wingnuts are listening!!

[Shhh! The whole world now sees how idiotic we are.]

I just got my first fortnightly paycheck for 2013. It's $113.08 less than my previous paycheck. That's $2,940.08 less that I will be able to spend on discretionary purchases this year.

[BUSH'S FAULT!!!]

democrats are going to have to work PRETTY DAMN HARD TO GET MY VOTE IN THE FUTURE. IF IT'S EVEN POSSIBLE. MY GIRL AND I COMBINED ARE TAKING A HIT HERE.

[Good news! The monthly trust fund payments for WILLIAM RIVERS PITT will be unaffected.]

Not only did Rush see it, but it started a great hash tag for us conservatives to offer out explanations to the DUmmies. Check it out at Twitchy:

I remember when the (real) Bush tax cuts went into effect. It was called a tax break for the rich.

Then when they were about to expire, they were a tax increase on the middle class.

When the SS tax holiday went into effect, Obama was the savior. When they end, its BUSH'S FAULT

It hurts when Barry asks EVERYBODY to "pay just a little bit more" to bring them up to "their fair share", doesn't it? Barry snookered his own voter base. Way to go Barry.

Which would imply that he is making $147k/yr. ($2,940.08 x 50). Of course, you do not pay SS on income above $113,700, so for anyone making up to $113,700, the increase is, at most, $2274.

Just wanted to toss this in there to add to the pain.

“We’ve got to educate the American people at the same time we educate the President of the United States. The Republicans, Speaker Boehner or Majority Leader Cantor did not call for Social Security cuts in the budget deal. The President of the United States called for that,”

--John Conyers July 27th 2011

Hey, all we need to do is tax all corporations at 100% every 4 years! Then we could fund the $4+T per year we need for utopia!

*** Which would imply that he is making $147k/yr. ($2,940.08 x 50). ***

He later clarified on the original DUmmie thread he only gets paid every two weeks.

He had to clarify, other DUmmies starting doing the same math you did. He was catching heat from the 'poor' Moonbats for being one of the 'evil rich'. Though his clarification didn't help much.

He was still being ragged on and he finally admitted that he did get paid a pretty good amount per year.
