Is it fair that some of Mr. Obama's largest campaign contributors received federal loan guarantees?
Is it fair that the richest 1% of Americans pay nearly 40% of all federal income taxes, and the richest 10% pay two-thirds of the tax?
Is it fair that American corporations pay the highest statutory corporate tax rate of all other industrialized nations but Japan, which cuts its rate on April 1?
Is it fair that President Obama sends his two daughters to elite private schools that are safer, better-run, and produce higher test scores than public schools in Washington, D.C.but millions of other families across America are denied that free choice and forced to send their kids to rotten schools?
Is it fair that Americans who build a family business, hire workers, reinvest and save their moneypaying a lifetime of federal, state and local taxes often climbing into the millions of dollarsmust then pay an additional estate tax of 35% (and as much as 55% when the law changes next year) when they die, rather than passing that money onto their loved ones?
Is it fair that after the first three years of Obamanomics, the poor are poorer, the poverty rate is rising, the middle class is losing income, and some 5.5 million fewer Americans have jobs today than in 2007? -snip-
Is it fair that the three counties with America's highest median family income just happen to be located in the Washington, D.C., metro area?
Is it fair that wind, solar and ethanol producers get billions of dollars of subsidies each year and pay virtually no taxes, while the oil and gas industrywhich provides at least 10 times as much energypays tens of billions of dollars of taxes while the president complains that it is "subsidized"?

We are now hopelessly quagmired in the muck that this weasel has shoved us into.
Like the word "gay", the word "fair" no longer means what it used to mean. Today both of those words basically mean BOHICA.
If Obama is not a born again Christian, the day will come when he will experience “fairness” at the hand of the Living God.
This has a good list. Let me expand on the first one:
Is it fair that the richest 1% of Americans pay nearly 40% of all federal income taxes, and the richest 10% pay two-thirds of the tax, but yet you (Obama) appeal to those that pay zero federal income taxes that is required to run the government telling them that they carry the whole load and that the rich carry none of it, and so they should demand more free stuff from the rich via re-electing you Obama?,
Appealing to them by stimulating envy and claiming that is what Jesus would do?
Whenever I hear “fair” or “fairness”, like you, I know I’m dealing with a Marxist, or a “soft” communist.
What I like to do, though, is make the sheeperal I’m talking to actually define the terms, and get past the “I feel good about myself for advocating this”.
“What exactly do you mean by ‘fairness’, and how do you propose we implement this vision of ‘fairness’? Do you intend to use violence against those who have a different opinion of what ‘fair’ is in order to implement YOUR opinion over theirs?”
Once we get to the “V” word, most sheeperals cringe into their socks. After all, the whole reason to advocate “fairness” is because “I’m a good person”, and a “good person” would never advocate that violence be used to impose their will on another person.
I like that!
You bet they do! FUB0!
Thanks for the ping!
Seems like they are being a bit hard on the usurper. /s
