Skip to comments.I Know It's Kinda Mean, But I Totally Laughed Through This Entire Column
Posted on 01/09/2013 3:24:04 PM PST by Impala64ssa
I haven't gotten my first paycheck of 2013 yet, but because I'm a person who pays some attention to the goings-on in our country, I'm well aware that it will be significantly lower than my last paycheck of 2012.
And it's not just the payroll tax thing. My health insurance premiums went up (thanks for nothing, Obamacare!), I've started a contribution to the United Way, and I've upped the amount I'm contributing to my flexible spending account. So yeah - I'm expecting a major plummet in my net take home pay.
But the jokers in this column? They were shocked - SHOCKED I SAY - that even though they voted for Obama, somehow their paychecks are lower. And they're not even part of the 1%!!!!
Some of the quotes were positively hysterical. BEHOLD:
"My paycheck just went down by an amount that I dont 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? - Democratic Underground commenter
Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama! - Twitter
"F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today! - Twitter
"Obama I did not vote for you so you can take away alot of money from my checks. - Twitter
Obama is the biggest f***ing liar in the world. Why the f*** did I vote for him?" - Twitter
Yes. That's what I'd like to know. Why the F*** did anyone vote for him?
Actually, I know why. Because they are MORONS. As is evidenced by the total ignorance in the quotes from the people above.
And even though I have to suffer the consequences of their stupidity right along with them, I can't help but get a little bit of gleeful satisfaction from reading these stunned revelations about their Messiah.
You got what you voted for, morons!
Truer words could not have been said ...
Not relevant to your main point, but I haven’t given a dime to United Way for decades, because they suck up money and give much of the rest to “charities” that I would never support.
Better to choose your individual charities carefully, according to what you think is most needful and beneficial.
I get paid tomorrow, but was able to see how much it’s going to be.
I’ll be taking home around $400 less tomorrow.
Just smile and say:
“Sorry, STU, reading comprehension is HARD (blame your teachers), critical thinking is harder (blame your parents), and your faith (God was booted out of your life, thank the ACLU and politicians). But in the end you voted for it, screeched for it, demanded it. Decisions have consequences. Get a job & live with it, crybaby. Imagine how pissed we are - we DIDN’T vote for them, yet we get to pay, right along with you”
Can we get some links? If I am to enjoy Schadenfreude I need source material.
Me? I can take a small hit (I have been planning accordingly) — I’ll still vacation in Hawaii next month and the Caribbean next spring.
Burger flippers probably are screwed.
And I’ll be buying a nice 12-gauge tomorrow, too.
I get screwed for what they voted for too. The somebitches are dragging me down with them, so I am a little less sanguine about it. Every time I see an Obama bumper sticker, I cuss out loud at them. "Bastids!"
Dammit! I want to go back. I have to wait until next year tho. Not enough money for this year. The one vacation I enjoyed from the time I landed until I got on the plane back.
The people quoted aren’t even the morons. The REAL morons are those who haven’t even realised what they have done.
Also, these quotes are spelled correctly, and have mostly acceptable grammar. A REAL Obamunist would sprinkle “nigga” and “r u serus foo” and “ima kill some rich peeple”
The sad thing is that if we had a do over election tomorrow, with the same candidates, these self same morons would still pull the lever for 0boober. What’s worse, the same conservatives would still sit home in order to “teach the GOP a lesson”.

Going to Kona this time — it was easier when I was in Los Angeles. We have never been to the Big Island but we have always loved Kauai. I hear tell Hawaii is alike a large Kauai so we’ll see.
I am not happy about being dinged for a few hundred bucks, but the chances are most FReepers are OK (if pissed), whereas most DU/KOS folks will not be able to get gas for their 1990 Volvos.
To those folk: Elections have consequences. And this is just the beginning! LOL!!!
Democracy: A system of government in which everybody gets what the majority deserves.
I’d love to hear about your trip to Kona when you get back. I’ve only been to Kauai and I couldn’t stand it if there was a place better than that. It’s the only reason I play the Powerball®.
Obama will make yet another false promise to “fix this problem”, & the morons will lap it up, prostrating themselves for ever doubting the One.
If you are waiting for this to end, it wont. People who are slavish to an open, prolific liar will remain loyal until the end. They will march like lemmings to their own miserable deaths, & many will deny the obvious even as they drown.
What angers me the most is that without the moral/responsible people (hosts) to financially support these morons (Leftist parasites), they would quickly become extinct.
Amen to that. A friend of mine became disabled suddenly- she was diagnosed with gastroparesis and could only hold down some fluids. At my recommendation, she called the United Way to try to get some assistance. She was getting most of her nutrition from Ensure and couldn’t afford it and couldn’t afford to heat her home during the winter.
UW offered diapers. Period. That was it.
I stopped my husband’s and my contributions immediately and will tell anyone this story that I can. (Hubby brought a winter’s worth of firewood for my friend and we bought her gift cards to purchase what she needed.)
I stopped and watched that a dozen times and laughed every time!

Congratulations. People need to be aware of just how charitable charities really are.

Bless you! Friends like you and your husband are priceless.
I worry about people who give money to the the UNited Way.
If you are a beer lover, do not miss the Kona Brew Pub. Happy hour 3-5pm M-F, beer is 1/2 price. We go once a week to slake my thirst. Usually get a large pizza too, which they do exceedingly well with some unique combinations.

I am and I won’t miss it! Thanks for the tip!
I will report back, of course :)
And the mental deficients who voted for him!
Go makai on Palani from Queen K Hwy, go right on Kuakini, and again right at the stop sign Kaiwi St. Right on Pawai Pl (first street) and the parking lot is at the end of the street. People get lost trying to find their way in have not been there before. Wednesdays can be crowded when the cruise ship is in.

Try this: #WhyIsMyPaycheckLessThisWeek Many funny ones there.
UMMM! Spam Pizza with coconut and pineapple. To die for.
The 47% got a raise and will probably experience greatly expanded benefits over the next four years. Laziness is now a virtue and must be encouraged by government rewards.
