(Obamaville Democrat) Schakowsky: Americans don't deserve to keep all of their money
WLS-AM 890 Radio News/Talk Chicago/Northern Illinois ^ | 2011-09-14 | John Dempsey

Posted on 09/14/2011 6:30:34 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

CHICAGO (WLS) - A lot of reaction Wednesday morning to Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky's interview with Don Wade and Roma.

Schakowsky said that Americans don't deserve to keep all of their money because we need taxes to support our society.

“I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it and it’s not a question of deserving because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together. And there are many things that we decide to do together like have our national security. Like have police and fire. What about the people that work at the National Institute of Health who are looking for a cure for cancer,” Schakowsky said.

Schakowsky also says one reason the 2009 stimulus bill did not succeed was because it was not large enough.

"To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." Thomas Jefferson

"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction." Thomas Jefferson

When we had a Republic we had a Constitution protecting us from people like her. We need a Republic again.

Schakowsky is the red amoeba at the bottom of the gene pool. Would somebody please piss in it and end her suffering?

Uh-oh. If Schakowsky is gone, then the next higher amoeba would be Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasser-Putz.

That gene pool is gonna need more than piss to clean it out.

The Government is trying to disarm us, they are violating the Constitution, they have no regard for the Civil Rights of Americans, they won’t close the border to stop illegal immigration, they have stolen from the pockets of our children and our childrens children.

My question to Schakowsky: What makes you think the Government has earned the right to even have the audacity to ask us to pay anything in taxes when they use that same money to undermine our way of life and our Rights? You are NOT our rulers, you represent the people, and by your comment, you do so very poorly. You definitely do not understand why you were elected to office and the position has gone to your head. You are not a two bit dictator even though your statement reeks of the idea that you think you are just that.

F you and the short yellow bus you rode in on.

Ooo what a 8itch.

Did we “decide to do together” porkulus? Farm subsidies?

To liberals the government and the people are the same thing. It’s the same thing whenever they talk about the “fairness” doctrine and told about the “public airwaves”. Public= government as far as they are concerned.

Congresswoman’s husband pleads guilty to two felonies

CHICAGO (AP) — The husband of an Illinois congresswoman pleaded guilty Wednesday to tax violations and bank fraud for writing rubber checks and failing to collect withholding tax from an employee.

Robert Creamer, a political consultant married to four-term U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, could face four years in prison on the two felony counts when he is sentenced Dec. 21.

“national security. Like have police and fire”

It never fails, when you challenge a liberal on their socialist policies, they always bring up things that people really see as necessary, and refuse to discuss egregious abuses of taxpayers like welfare, foodstamps, etc.

Come and take it.

"...And there are many things that we decide to do together like have our national security. Like have police and fire. What about the people that work at the National Institute of Health who are looking for a cure for cancer,” Schakowsky said.

Then, we will maintain our own national security, like we used to. Then, we will police ourselves and maintain our own fire safety--without unions. F--k the National Institute of Health; they are no more deserving of keeping their income than the rest of us. Get bent. Afterwards, you can come and try to take our money. You can have it after you take our guns and ammo.

Every Democrat in this Congress needs to be on the hot seat defending their Fuhrer and his actions since the day he was put in office. They all need to be voted out along with the Republicans who have no spine and guts. Time to clean the sewer that is this Congress and the sewers at every level of government throughout this country.

Just for the record: as a congressional Representative, Jan Schakowsky is paid $174,000. per year ($3,346. per week) along with receiving gold-plated benefits and perks galore, all on the backs of U.S. taxpayers. She does what some Democrat politicians inadvertently do from time to time: tell the truth about their view of the American taxpayer. It isn't pretty. I can guarantee you that the MSM will try hard to bury this ditzy dames embarrassing statement or if it gets out, a horde of Democrat operatives will be all over the place explaining 'what she really meant' so as not to get the peons (us) upset and questioning their government.

What really bothers me is not so much that an obscure lefty congresswoman from a state famous for Democrat corruption and far-left politics i.e. Barack Obama is spouting collectivist nonsense but that Illinois citizens elected this woman despite her ignorance and arrogance. If that is what Americans are voting for, as they did with Obama and most of the Democrats in congress, we are in big trouble as a nation and a Republican electoral victory won't be able to change that unless we get a majority of conservatives into office, which is highly unlikely. Even if we did, the left effectively 'owns' the educational system, the media, entertainment industry and many churches as well as a good chunk of the political turf in many states, such as Illinois, making Americas future look less than rosy.

However, in human history, nothing ever remains the same over time and I retain the hope that our nations people, the ones that make America work, not the takers, will come to their senses, reject the collectivist dogma Democrats spout, albeit in code most of the time, and return our nation to the greatness that we are fully capable of attaining, again, if and when we, as Americans, throw off the shackles of the Big Government Nanny State we've allowed leftists politicians to pull us into. The 2012 election will be our opportunity and if we blow it and the Republicans nominate another RINO (like Romney) America is truly doomed.

And she's not going anywhere. In 2010, a banner year for conservatives, this is what the polls said:

Schakowsky , Jan (i) Dem 114,969 66%
Pollak , Joel GOP 54,274 31%
Ribeiro , Simon Grn 4,374 3%

In THAT year, of all years, 69% of the voting public voted whacky left.

On normal years, I'd expect to see 75% voting for Communist takeover. Jan Schakowsky

"They" have fooled you into thinking that your "Civil Rights" are more important than your unalienable and Constitutional Rights.

Not meaning to be scathing or harsh, but you exhibit a "slave to government" mentality with your Civil Rights declaration.

If the government gives rights then they can take them away at their leisure later, can't they?

I (along with many others) worked my butt off for Joel Pollack last time out. I thought he ran a good campaign, had lots of resources, and a huge crew of volunteers. Still could not get more than 33%. I don't know if he's planning another run or not.

In the meantime, I'm out of the ninth with the new map. If it holds up in court, I'll be a Dold guy ... could he be any less visible in DC?

Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky: “I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it and it’s not a question of deserving because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together.”

What if we decide “together” that “government” is too “big” and some things need to be “not done”. Especially by “government”.

I think some things were decided together in 2010 and will be done “together” in 2012 as well.

Will be holding my breath for your thoughts, Schakowsky. Is there an elementary school teaching rubric or metric we can agree on? Maybe a template or a meme?

She’s just corroborating what WE out here already know about who the Dems really are...

But there’s a bright spot to this - she’s also enlightening a whole bunch of people who never paid attention before.

Use it. Every time they f***k up and let the mask slip, USE it as a “Teachable Moment” for folks.

Every Freeper has a DUTY to show this to at least ten “independents” or other folks who “aren’t really into politics...”

They may not be into politics, but I can damn sure guarantee you that they’re into their own wallets - and to hear this Marxist piece of sh*t say it out loud, without batting an eye - well, if that doesn’t change minds, we ARE truly headed for civil war.

I would get in touch with Pollack and see if he is considering another run. So many of our good guys don’t make it the first time around, like our Allen West here in Florida.

What happened in NY and NV is showing us this time around Republicans will have a much better chance in high DEM areas as folks are turning on Ovomit and his gang!
