Posted on 05/22/2010 5:44:48 AM PDT by Kaslin
In a recent speech, President Obama declared, at some point, I think youve got enough money. And its what he thinks, not what you think, that matters. That goes double for what he thanks about your money.
There lies bare as can be the irrefutable evidence of the presidents true ideology (socialism or worse) and of just how serious a threat he is to this nation.
The only things yet to be determined are:
1. What is that point at which youve got enough money and should have the overage confiscated? 2. Are there different points for different people? (Im betting there are.)
To my knowledge, no one in the media has demanded he state the number.
The president and his wife made $5.5 million this past year, which the media claims came mostly from book royalties which were made possible by free advertising for the books by his presidential campaign, which was funded by donors, including the evil CEO of Goldman Sachs, and now by the presidency itself. He donated his Nobel Prize award, plus about 6 percent of his earned income to charities. Not a staggering percentage by any means. A great many Americans tithe 10 percent.
Presumably, after those donations, and taxes, the Obamas kept about $3 million or so, and theyre living rent-free in Washington, and will in as short a time as four years, gain a lifetime pension. (Perhaps Michelle is proud of her country now?)
Good news, I guess: we might hope that earning $3 million will not be the point at which Obama decides youve got enough money. Unless the point at which youve got too much is different from the point at which hes got too much. Again, Ill bet it is.
But it would seem a good guess that somebody who is making an income or has stacked up a fortune five or ten times that much would be deemed by Obama as having enough. Thus, the following people should expect the president to single them out as greedy villains any day now:
* Warren Buffett, who recently had 40,000 of his stockholders gather in a vile display of wretched excess. A bunch of them probably have too much money. * Bill Gates. * Former presidents, including Clinton. * Al Gore. * Athletes like LeBron James and Tiger Woods. * Entertainers like Sheryl One Sheet Crow or the host of this years press corps banquet, Jay Leno. Maybe even a few of the liberal media elites who were in that audience.
For all these wealth gluttons, I have a suggestion: stop earning any more money for the next two years. Since most of you voted for him anyway, grant the president his wish. Stop.
Withdraw all your money from all investments. Shutter your stores, restaurants, factories, movie studios, banks and financial brokerages. Evict all tenants from your apartment buildings and shopping centers, and board the buildings up. Invent nothing, bring no products to market, write no books and hire no one. Stop adding to your unjust, unfair, beyond-the-point income or wealth. Take a vacation. File next years federal, state and local tax returns with big, fat zeroes written on the payment-due lines.
While youre at it, buy as little as possible too. After all, at other times, the president has indicated he thinks many of us keep our homes too warm or too cool, drive around too much (on under-inflated tires), eat too much salty food, buy Cadillac health plans that are too good. He has a point of too much in mind about everything. He is the Decider of your too-much. Everybody at the too-much point could relieve him of a lot of worry by spending nearly nothing for the next two years.
During a conference at which I just spoke, the owner of several companies showed me a pair of cufflinks hed just had custom-made, engraved with the words Who Is John Galt? If the president isnt familiar with Ayn Rands Galt, he might want to read up.
This business owner said the cuff-links were the last item other than absolute necessities that he would buy until Obama was an ex-president. He said he was sending out a letter to the restaurants and shops he patronized, his dry cleaners, the service companies that tended his lawns at his homes over 200 different business owners letting them know that President Obama had determined he was making too much money and was too rich for reason. Therefore, he was going to cut sales and production at his companies by half, himself work but one day a week, cut business spending to the bone and personally buy nothing other than vacations out of the country until the president exits.
I’ll have enough money when I.....
yeah the list is endless. Apparently Obummer’s idiocy is not (yes I knew that too, just saying it)....
Today is a record!!!!
I just sat down at the puter, coffee is brewing....and the jacka$$ in the White House has already ticked me off!
Good going obummer.
I teach a women’s strength training class. One of the women in it is the mother of a famous athlete and a ragging lib. She made a comment last week about people ‘making too much money’ and ‘you only need a little extra than it takes for you to get by.’. It was all I could do to keep from rolling on the floor laughing considering who her son is and how much he makes!
While they are dining on wagyu Beef and Jicama Salad, they have the nerve to say this?
Maybe it is time for The States to say to fedzilla, Sorry you already have enough of our Tax Money. Live with what you have.
I’d respond that at some point, we just have too much “hope.”
I think Obama’s had enough $100/pound Wagyu beef and Air Force One trips for his wedding anniversary and Michelle’s birthday.
Also, I think he should donate all his book profits to anti-gun education programs in Chicago. Remember the needs of the many, comrade!
/if I need a sarc tag here, chances are you’re at the wrong site in the first place.
There is no such thing as enough money. Perhaps I want to do what the Bible says I must, and take care of my children’s children’s children.
Amen, they are supposed to serve us, I don’t see any serving going on anymore..
Strangely enough, it turns out liberal elites need more money than any other group - followed closely by government workers ... who belong to unions.
Fine with me. When I became disabled, I cut out a lot of luxury spending, and maybe what some people might consider necessary spending. I’ve actually lived pretty well on a lot less. So maybe I won’t go back to work. After all, Obama has determined I make too much. So I won’t work and I won’t spend. If more and more people do as that businessman is doing, let’s watch the economy tank. Hell, we might as well let it tank; it’s about to go there anyway. And who knows...maybe once the economy collapses altogether, the Obama true believers might actually be shaken out of their stupor.
Right now I’d be happy to leave mine an inheritance of Freedom.
“And who knows...maybe once the economy collapses altogether, the Obama true believers might actually be shaken out of their stupor.”
I wish I was as optimistic as you are about them being shaken out of their stupor. Now if you either take away the TV or have the electricity go out. That might do it. Probably not though.
I expect that they will just sit still until FEMA shows up with bottled water and ice. :-)
“Profits” are viewed by Marxists as exploitation of surplus labor.
And their very lavish vacations...taken at our expense.
Was he making the speech in Hollywood? If not, he should. Rather than lecturing us working stiffs, he should be harassing his friends like Norman Lear, Tom Hanks, Babs Streisand, and all the other Hollyweird scum who kiss his skinny a$$. And throw in George Soros, Peter Lewis, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and the rest of the well-heeled Obamaphiliacs as well. Does Odouchebag think they have "enough money"?
Oslimebutt is bordering on psychotic. He is so detached from reality. Evidently he thinks there are tens of millions of people out there who make all these tons of money and because they disagree with his politics and policies must make "too much money". Yet he refuses to see that the very wealthiest among us are his most ardent supporters. Why doesn't he go after them first before coming after the pittance the rest of us earn?
We have a winner!
Mr. Obama, you have just run out of OUR money!
