First they came for my health care and I did not speak out because I was insured.

Then they came for the higher income earners and small business owners, and I did not speak out because I was NOT in those income brackets.

Then they came for my Social Security benefits and I did not speak out because I hadn't reached age 62.

Then they came for my retirement accounts and savings, and there was no one left to speak out for me.

I think that rumble I hear off in the distance is the wealthy pulling their money out of American investments and companies, and moving their assets offshore into shell corporations and numbered bank accounts. Very quickly Obama will learn he killed the goose that laid the golden egg.

He gave Warren Buffet a medal.

Warren doesn’t pay.

Not even the 15%.

He owes back taxes.

Screw that, let the tax cuts expire and everyone will be seeing who the tax cuts were really benefiting.

Barack, you’re going to eat those words some day. How dare you. Now, all the people who can start businesses and invest to make jobs are going to take their assets and hide, leave, put them away. You are deliberately trying to destroy this nation.

A majority of Americans don’t agree with Obama’s approach. He was helped back into office by dead people and fictional characters.

I always wanted to be a member of the wealthy class. I guess we all are now.

Look folks, Obama got a mandate.

I say the wealthy should turn all wealth in excess of $10 million to the federal government.

Liquidate all stocks.

Make corporations an illegal enterprise.

Close up the evil banks. Oh yes, that means all of them.

I would advocate for allowing people to own private property, but that doesn’t really reflect what people voted for. I’m probably wrong.

Let Obama have all wealth. And in the second year, there will be no wealth. There will be no production. There will be no land owners. There will be no evil banks. Wall Street will no longer exist.

In short, we will have a more perfect union. Every person will be poor.

Bliss is attained.

All praise the son of Allah, the grand imam in chief.

Smart rich people have been preparing for this and will protect their “ass”ets as it were.

Stupid rich people, such as those in Hollywood, will be unprepared. I hope these Obama supporters in Hollywood get stripped of their wealth because, afterall, they did not really build it/earn it and they really don’t need that much money and the liberal bureaucrats know better how to spend our money anyhow. /sarc ???....not really

By encouraging the Republicans to offer proposals, he is setting them up. Anything they say that is in opposition to his plan will be savaged by his allies in the DBM.

We live in Ohio and went to NY for fertility treatment.

The nurse said it was her duty to inform us that it is illegal in NY to bring semen in from out of state. To conform with the letter of the law, I would need to wait until we crossed the state line before I “processed” my deposit.

I couldn’t help but wonder if they had “sperm police” in NY state and, if so, what their badges looked like.

Both sides claim they are willing to compromise. If this is a critical issue, why not split it down the middle - raise the top margin rate by half the increase O wants. Both sides get some of what they wanted, but not all, and neither side gets a disaster.

Let’s do it Barack’s way, and make America pay. Give him what he wants.

No you liar O, the majority of Americans still don’t agree with your approach. Rather, your party ginned up more voter activity. You’d be screaming about how “disproportionate” the GOP vote was if Mitt had prevailed.

The less painful for those laying siege is to avoid loss by assualt and,instead, rely on attrition. Starve your enemy to submission by withdrawal of intellectual, material, and spiritual sustenance. Then, your enemy will either support you or retreat to the shadows of doubt and disbelief.

He has never been forced to prove that small businesses that file as an S corporation that just make it into the 250K “profit” area are RICH. OR that all that money is 100% pocketed by only the owner, and not to being plowed back into the business, expanding the business, paying off debt, etc.

In the same token the Republicans FAILED to get this point across and get enough people to understand this fact of life.

From what Limbaugh said, wealthy[I do not refer to anyone that supports obama as “American”] individuals overwhelmingly supported obama. The owner of the Pittsburg Steelers still does. So I don’t give a damn what he does to them.
