Real Clear Politics ^ | July 5, 2011 | Real Clear Politics

Posted on 07/06/2011 6:27:14 AM PDT by broken_arrow1

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) files a cloture motion on Senate bill 1323, a "Sense of the Senate" bill on "Shared Sacrifice." Here are the details of this resolution: SECTION 1. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON SHARED SACRIFICE. (a) Findings- Congress makes the following findings:

(1) The Wall Street Journal reports that median pay for chief financial officers of S&P 500 companies increased 19 percent to $2,900,000 last year.

(2) Over the past 10 years, the median family income has declined by more than $2,500.

(3) Twenty percent of all income earned in the United States is earned by the top 1 percent of individuals.

(4) Over the past quarter century, four-fifths of the income gains accrued to the top 1 percent of individuals. (b) Sense of the Senate – It is the sense of the Senate that any agreement to reduce the budget deficit should require that those earning $1,000,000 or more per year make a more meaningful contribution to the deficit reduction effort.

The 10 Measures of Communism

And how will the proletariat use their political clout to wrest capital away from the capitalists? With the 10 measures Marx and Engels laid out in 1848. As the master communists aver, the exact implementation will vary slightly from county to country, but will follow the general thrust of the measures.

Here are the 10 measures the proletariat will use to bring about the full realization of the communist utopian dream, once they have the political power:

1).Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes.

2). A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

3). Abolition of all rights of inheritance.

4).Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

5). Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly.

6). Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.

7). Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

8). Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country.

9). Free education for all children in public schools.

10). Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc.

I’d like that miserable piece of excrement to “share a sacrifice” with some deal soldier. The soldier gets his life back, and we can then flush the remains of that t*rd congresscritter.

(Please excuse my language, but I have no respect whatsoever for ANY liberal democrat. I would not lift a finger to save their lives, and would indeed rejoice in their suffering. They are slime. Period.)

“9). Free education for all children in public schools.”

This is the one I never understood. It really hands me a laugh. WHY educate ANYONE? There is NO WHERE for them to go in this sterile and shallow society.

By the time ONE generation of people is ‘educated’ (what ever THAT is) the society will be SO controlled and flat that opportunities and mobility of ANY kind will have been a thing of the past!!

Harry wants to scratch “equality” from the American
vocabulary with one hand and write communism with
the other.

Harry, it’s equality of opportunity, not equality
of result.

Oh, and Dingy Harry fails to complete this sentence: (3) Twenty percent of all income earned in the United States is earned by the top 1 percent of individuals but they pay 395 of the taxes so thanks for paying more than your fair share...

Harry, here is your chance to be a true leader for once.

Why don’t you go and sacrifice yourself? Let the other dems in the Senate follow your lead. Give up your wealth first or shut the ____ up!!!

Surprise! The Reid Senate missed that fact that half of this country pays NO federal income taxes yet expects government benefits AND lots of ‘government investment’ for the money THEY DON'T PAY (see my tagline.)

I also heard a new Obama-ism yesterday. Obama said he wants to ‘cut spending in the tax code’ rather than call it raising taxes.

Classic Clintonion speak. The other one is they keep saying 'revenue raising' instead of tax raising.

RE :”” The other one is they keep saying ‘revenue raising’ instead of tax raising. “.....It helped(if not outright caused) George HW Bush’s defeat.

Watching the media beat on Republicans for not raising taxes reminds me of how GHWB cut a deal to raise taxes in 1990 (one reason he said he did it was to get the Democrat congress to authorize the Gulf war) and how in 1992 Clinton used his raising taxes against him in commercials and debates while the Democrat congress leaders Foly and Gephart who made the deal disappeared.

Democrats including the Balt Sun in Maryland did the same thing to a RINO governor in Maryland to beat him in the election, they beat on him publically and cornered him into raising taxes, then called him a liar in the campaign for breaking his promise, used it in both 2006 and 2010.

Twenty percent of all income earned in the United States is earned by the top 1 percent of individuals.

They earn 20% of all income ... yet don't they pay like 80 or 90% of all federal income tax collected?

Reid's Sudden Regret
IBD Editorials | July 5, 2011 | Staff
FR Posted on Tuesday, July 05, 2011 by Kaslin

Subprime Scandal: The corrupt process by which the Democrat-appointed Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission was formed and ran its "investigation" is finally getting press.

In an extraordinary development, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid now says he regrets naming fellow Democrat Byron Georgiou to the commission because of "ethical concerns" first raised by this paper regarding Georgiou's tenure at the FCIC.

"I wish I hadn't done it," Reid said. The sudden renouncement casts doubt not only over Georgiou's credentials, but also the FCIC's findings, which were released in its final report in January. The panel pinned the mortgage mess on Wall Street. The Senate majority leader complained that Georgiou, one of six Democrats appointed to the 10-member panel, misled him about his affiliations.

Reid now claims Georgiou never made his employment with a major securities litigator known to him prior to his appointment. Georgiou works for Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd, which represents several pension funds suing Goldman Sachs and other banks demonized by the FCIC. The commission's chief investigator, Chris Seefer, also happens to be a partner at Robbins Geller.

As first reported by IBD, Georgiou spoke at a closed-door conference for pension fund lawyers hosted by Robbins Geller while he was still serving on the commission.

Georgiou was joined by FCIC chairman Phil Angelides. The commissioners promised to privately share their findings with the group, according to a conference brochure. (Excerpt) Read more at investors.com ...

======================================

REFERENCE--Subprime Scandal: The Angst Of Phil Angelides / IBD Editorial
FR Posted 6/30 by Kaslin

Democrats thought they'd dammed up the truth about government's role in the financial crisis. But the levies are breaking, thanks to a spate of rogue new books on the subject. The latest, "Reckless Endangerment," shreds the narrative carefully constructed by Democrats and the liberal media that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were only bit players in the crisis and followed Wall Street into subprime lending.

It details how the federally chartered mortgage giants in fact led the way in relaxing underwriting standards for the entire industry — thanks to relentless pressure from Democrats, who used them as off-budget piggy banks to fund their social crusade to boost minority homeownership (and shore up their voting base).

Though "Reckless Endangerment" largely repeats what conservative books like "The Great American Bank Robbery" and "The Housing Boom and Bust" have said, "Reckless" is written by a New York Times business writer.

WHY educate ANYONE? There is NO WHERE for them to go in this sterile and shallow society.
****************
I think the answer lies in their definition of “education”. The thing they call free education we would more likely call “RE” education, ie they want this in order to indoctrinate and turn people into robotic units of labor who can mechanically vote for them and mouth the tenants of communism.

It is more important that his ideas and policies are defeated at the polls, lest a successor employ sympathy to further the agenda.

In Modern times, since 1776, whenever a movement has lead to the systematic extermination of thousands, or even millions of people, it always started out as being against ‘ the rich’, or ‘The People against the Powerful’.

It's historically documented that political takeovers invariably reach first and most rapaciously for the ‘educational’ system.

In fact, in securing the ‘schools’ (there are long and vicious fights over THIS everywhere on earth EXCEPT the US) tyrants are well on their way to gaining EVERYTHING.

Yet, the voters in this country of fat, lazy cattle have voluntarily relinquished their children (AND their own futures) to unprincipled, greedy and power-mad brutes who love pretending they are doing what is best for the ‘children’! Keeping children stupid, docile and UNEMPLOYABLE is paying off as you see!!

I could throw up!
