Obama Supporters Are Shocked, Shocked, I Tell You.... (After realizing taxes have gone up)
American Thinker ^ | 01/07/2013 | Selwyn Duke

Posted on 01/07/2013 12:29:12 PM PST by SeekAndFind

My mother always used to say, "Life is the best teacher." Sure is -- and sometimes it smacks you right upside the head. It appears that this has happened with Barack Obama supporters now witnessing their paychecks shrink in the wake of tax increases. And they're none too happy.

In fact, they're shocked.

Shocked, I tell you.

Providing examples of this liberal anger and angst, Joseph Curl writes:

"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?"

Well, pal, I'll explain it. George Bush has found a way to control Obama's mind, sort of like a zombie. I mean, you don't think the great orator's mouth makes all the mistakes it does (off-Teleprompter) because it's actually controlled by the great orator's brain, now, do you?

Curl continues:

"The Twittersphere was even funnier."

"Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama," wrote "Meet Virginia." "Nancy Thongkham" was much more furious. "F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!"

How can you pay off loans with smaller paychecks, Virginia? Ask Nancy; she sounds like a real intellectual.

Reminds me of something Yuri Bezmenov said about the useful idiots being marched towards the wall with surprise in their eyes.

You’d think they’d be thrilled to learn that they’re “the rich”.

Be careful what you wish for.

The amusing thing about our current predicament is that the one thing that would revive the GOP is a series of hefty tax hikes. All the liberals who whine about the rich not paying their fair share will end up with sticker shock once they find out that they are “rich” and the “fair share” they were insisting upon somebody else paying is a significant chunk of what they thought was hard-earned cash that belonged to them. Bottom line is that things have to get worse before they get better. Remember the line about people being liberal until they get mugged? That’s what liberals need - a good mugging by the IRS.

the way to pay off a student loan is to assign the proceeds of your social security to the student loan redeployment authority. they will draw down future ss payments to liquidate your student loans.
the slra will then attach your future payouts and make sliding repayments. the fees for this arrangement can be charged against medicare co pay adders.

the fees are deductible within the limits of first year earnings multiplied by the sustainability constant published monthly in the federal register. except in california and minnesotaa where no deduction is allowed if you have state education loans under the express service liability authority, then the constant is reduced by the square root of the sustainability factor noted above.

It is called the “idiot tax.” They were useful idiots and now they are just idiots.

Life is stranger than fiction!

Another example would be the rat that sets a bomb to go off aboard “some kind of transportation vehicle” (reader’s choice), and then gets stuck aboard same vehicle!

OOOPS!

Obama-bots! I CARE NOT TO FEEL YO’ PAIN!

"Obama Supporters Are Shocked, Shocked, I Tell You.... (After realizing taxes have gone up)..."

.... Strangely though .... the Liberals really don't have anything to fear about this turn of events. At least P.R. wise. As you will see in the next few days, weeks, months, years, They will spin the new taxes with their standard formulaic response that they use for pretty much anything that comes their way.

..... All the Liberal Socialists have to do to avert a catastrophic perception and P.R. disaster amongst their supporters is to divert and direct their anger towards a scapegoat .... a successful tactic that has been used for thousands of years.

Of course we all know who the scapegoats will be!! Heck we're all sitting here reading this aren't we!?!?? .... but for some miraculous reason ... the recipients of the directive attack never see it coming ... even though the tactic has been the same for thousands of years. AND ... even though this tactic has been used for so long ... they know full well that their opponents don't have the mental wherewithal to protect themselves from this millenia old tactic. Heck we all know that the old saying is true .... "... you can't teach an old dog new tricks."

..... HA .... go figure eh.

How to pay off student loans:

Start a gov. approved company, solar, electric car, etc.

Then get gov. grants, tax breaks, loans.

Pay yourself a salary as befits s successful business person.

Demand more grants, etc.

Go broke but pay yourself a bonus for your expertise in running the company.

Here’s the deal. They loved Obamas speeches about spreading the wealth, and being fair for the greater good. The idiots thought Obama was directing his message to the enemy, the republicans. Now they realize anyone with a job in America is an enemy.

I agreed with the government on this one. We had no business lowering that FICA tax. It was designed to help the “working poor”. Now I am glad the working poor have to absorb a little pain now.

Hey liberals. Your tears of economic pain are my favorite food.

Let me be among the first to welcome you to Reality(tm). What we’ve been warning you about at FR, for five years (well, almost five - about 4-3/4 in relation to the current guy).

As I recall we were warning about this guy around March, 2008.

But, they did not listen.

For every known life form except liberals, which have developed a peculiar immunity through selective inbreeding, stupidity itself contains an inescapable built-in negative feedback mechanism.

These idiots haven't seen anything yet. Wait until the price of everything goes up to cover the increase taxes on those over 250K. Of course our King Obama will increase those receiving welfare and food stamps to cover those price increases. But you poor saps that are still working, tough shi!

Ah the stupidity! All these people cared about were the “free” handouts from the government: obamaphones, welfare cards, free everything. But they were too stupid to ask where the money was coming from.

The left entices people with “free” things, but their goal is really to ensnare people in their grip and control their lives, actions and thoughts.

several nurses aides were talking about this....they probably make $15/hr or so....the concensus is that they're all upping their deductibles so they get more money back....one guy has two sons, between him and his divorced wife, and he's claiming 5....because he knows his income will get him a fat return at tax time anyway....

for the rest of us, upping your deductibles is not a bad way to go....you don't know what your situation is going to be in several months....and keeping more of YOUR own money rather than surrender it early to bammy sammy makes sense...

If trilobites had some welfare state to tend to their desires evolution would have skidded to a stop.

Unfortunately, the consequences of universal shiftlessness that elected our current president have only now kicked in and since Natural Selection has been around so long the death of our species will be long and agonizing.
