Posted on 01/06/2013 4:23:49 PM PST by Reagan is King
Sometimes, watching a Democrat learn something is wonderful, like seeing the family dog finally sit and stay at your command.
With President Obama back in office and his life-saving fiscal cliff bill jammed through Congress, the new year has brought a surprising turn of events for his sycophantic supporters.
What happened that my Social Security withholdings in my paycheck just went up? a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. My paycheck just went down by an amount that I dont feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?
Shocker. Democrats who supported the presidents re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy 1 percenters, you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.

WELCOME to reality folks!
Doncha realizin dat you is da rich! Sit back and have a laugh! These idiots are truly one sandwich short of a picnic
The libs are in for a rude awakening. This is just the first week. 2013 is going to be the year of big tax increases. Everyone is going to get nailed, not just “the rich”. That “the rich” thing was just a smoke screen used by the left to fake out and fool their useful idiots.
All liberals believe, deep in the hearts of what passes for their hearts, that all those rules, all those regulations, all those morals, and all those taxes should only apply to someone else.
LMAO,poor babies hate to see a few of their own dollars taken away.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! Wake up call in isle 6!
and in spite of this the majority of them will still vote as they do ... look at California.
And, idiot obama supporters have yet to figure out what “investment” means when the word is used by a democrat.
I work for a small manufacturing firm in Texas. About 100 shop employees. This August will be the annual ad/drop for insurance. This year the owner is not offering health insurance. They ave been very generous for years, and have absorbed price increases over the last 6 years. This year its going to hit home. A lot of the employees are obummer idiots, they are starting to get the message and are crying already.
Useful idiots are no longer useful or needed.
Those that don’t have pay checks will see it when prices rise and their welfare and food stamp benefits don’t go as far. Of course, that’ll be the fault of the productive. Everything else is.
I am a major share holder in a “S” corporation. I started if in 1972 and have never had a yearly loss. I always took the “profits” and left them in the company (after taxes were paid on the earnings) and now myself and my three partners have decided to take “distributions”. Tax already paid.....
We are moving to a very low pay scale and instead of paying rather high taxes on our normal payroll we will take just enough pay out to pay for medical, SSI. and other state and local “Overhead” and ride “o’s” train out of the station till it stops. While the profits replenish for our “families families will be replenished over the next generation.
I am the youngest of eight, military.’66-68. Still suffering from the after effects of the “F’n” jungles.
Paid my dues.......
Sorta like being called “special” all your life and finally realizing what they rally meant by “special”.
They’ll soon find that their hard-earned EBT dollars don’t buy as many Skittles and Arizona Teas as they used to
Virtually no one has any experience with $5,000 an hour jobs ~ maybe they might win a lottery ticket sometimes, or sell a house and end up with $50,000 or something, but for the most part they don't.
So what is it that the folks who make $5,000 per hour and above are doing?
Well, some are clipping coupons (regular interest payments on bonds purchased by then, or their ancestors) ~ hardly difficult work, but it's possible to look at this semi-skilled practice as work ~ but for $5,000 an hour? Probably not ~ but then we have lawyers who win big cases for rich clients. There are arguments the lawyer's arguments actually enhanced the client's wealth ~ but seriously, I've known a lot of lawyers and never seen any of them really work at it ~ so what is it if hard work isn't really doing a song and dance for a judge?
I think the writer's reference to 'inventiveness' ~ which has a good number of synonymns, is probably more like it. They didn't get the big bucks for working hard, they got them for being clever. An hourly wage guy who does unskilled labor probably has a hard time understanding that and might well misinterpret it as THEFT! Someone with more education probably understands that the big bucks go to the smart guys, although there are those who imagine the rich guys got their money simply by being in the right place at the right time ~ rather like a lottery winning.
I know rich people who actually think that ~ that they got there by being lucky. At the other end of the thought spectrum some of them imagine they got the big bucks because they deserve it over and above anybody else. I'm sure the mob guys think that way ~ fur shur the Presidential appointees do.
I didn’t agree with that tax cut (over others that could have been) But I ALWAYS knew there was a two years expiration date. These people must have been voting with their ‘lady’ parts. Such tools.
Lenin had such a keen insight of progressives .... he immediately created a special term for them .... “useful idiots”.
Commie pigs are only for OTHER people’s taxes to be raised never their own. They hate anyone who earns a living and succeeded in life..that is who they despise. ANYONE who voted for Obama deserves to have their taxes raised, they voted for the dipsh*t, they deserve to suffer the consequences..but hey, they will end up going on the Govt for help, get plenty of food stamps and welfare and will be happy again
We’ve been telling them that “He’s a Lying, Two-Faced, Bottom Dealing, Backstabing, SOB” for nearly 6 years and the light is just now coming on.
We need to rescind the 16th amendment and let the smart guys figure out some way to create an indirect tax that will do the job.
The founders didn't want the federal government 'getting skin' from the ordinary citizens of this country. That's a Central African and Eastern European way of thinking that has no place in this country.
But don't you feel all warm and fuzzy because the "rich are paying their fair share"? (never mind they pay far, far more than their "fair share").
What? Obama lied to you, you say?
Stupid is as stupid does.
I love it when rats and libs finally get a taste of their own medicine. This is what they voted for, why are they surprised?
Wait until they get their healthcare bill!!
Let me guess: the useful idiots are blaming the “cruel” employer for no longer offering insurance?
Sooooo, y’all hirin’?
The writer spelled "psychotic" wrong.
To all the idiots whom voted for the King Odumbo - Cry me a river. I am enjoying this immensely.
the democrats in my area of Michigan are screaming. screaming even louder is the cities whom were dependent upon the property tax, the City loses the city property tax revenue = county tax.
Just remember to tell the democrat idiots to read a book - Suggested titles
Yellow River - I.P. Daily
Tigers revenge - Claude Balls
add more book titles for the democrat idiots to increase their knowledge base (Remember the titles and authors are really a joke in itself, just like a democrat is able to increase their knowledge base)
I have a major peeve. Anyone who does not have a college education is called "a working man".
So with my MBA, working 20 hour days when I was on the road 100+ nights a year, what was I ?
Oh, that's right. I got to stay in posh hotels. About 4 hours a night and no OT pay for me.(Maybe I should have unionized?)
I feel their pain; I just told my wife we’re gonna have to cut back to lobster OR steak instead of lobster and steak a couple of times a month. She said I could drive the Mercedes less and save on gas (not gonna happen).
Gonna take some of the glamour out of minimum wage careers
Honey: You aint seen nothing yet.
Wait until Obamacare gets into High Gear.
Entrepreneurs will find inventive ways around a lot of the requirements established by Obamacare. The new law applies to full-time employees, which Barack defines as those who work 30 hours a week or more.
Suppose an employer currently has a worker making $12.50/hr who works a 40 hour week, for a gross of $500. A creative employer could change the worker to part-time status, have him work 25 hours on the books @$20, for the same $500, and work the additional 15 hours off the books. Yeah—no healthcare benefits. That will become a lot more common than it is now.
The price of food and goods are starting to go up - again - due to the new tax increases. Gas is due to hit $4 by spring.
Welcome to Obomaland. Hows that hope n change workin' out for ya now?
Oh please, the liberal mind is a sick mind. They will play mental twister to blame Republicans for their checks being smaller. Still, happy to see some spreading of the pain.
Well, either that or...useless idiots.
"What happened that my Social Security withholding's in my paycheck just went up?" a poster wrote on the liberal site DemocraticUnderground.com. "My paycheck just went down by an amount that I don't feel comfortable with. I guarantee this decrease is gonna' hurt me more than the increase in income taxes will hurt those making over 400 grand. What happened?" Shocker. Democrats who supported the presidents re-election just had NO idea that his steadfast pledge to raise taxes meant that he was really going to raise taxes. They thought he planned to just hit those filthy "1 percenters," you know, the ones who earned fortunes through their inventiveness and hard work. They thought the free ride would continue forever.Well, you know, Obama actually *cut* spending, so this tax hike is to cover the deficit that is completely the fault of his predecessor. /s
If the GOP were smart ( no evidence of that) they would foment turmoil and discontent among these pinhead libs, and make sure they understand that 0bama is the reason their checks are smaller.
And just remember, your Barry has YOUR back!
Too rich by half!!
They were useful idiots until the polls closed on November 6, 2012.
Now they're just plain idiots.

I’m just guessing, but I think your Mercedes is a LOT better on gas than the average chevy.
Tell me if I’m wrong.
But I did get the trips to posh hotels ~ off season when we could get them cheaper than the gresiest dirt bag wino motel ~ and frequently spent 100 hour weeks.
The alternative is hourly wage work with caps on overtime, no trips. Jobs at the higher levels are also more entertaining.
