Skip to comments.Obama to Al Sharpton: ‘My Religious Faith’ Makes Me Believe Republicans Will Agree to Raise Taxes
Posted on 11/21/2011 7:15:02 PM PST by Just4Him
According to President Obama, his religious faith is what helps him continue to believe that Republican lawmakers will eventually raise taxes on wealthy Americans, who, Obama was sure to point out again, need to pay their fair share.
Speaking to Reverend Al Sharpton following the Super Committees monumental failure Monday, the president stated his disappointment in Republicans for being short-sighted in not offering any serious revenues.
So the position theyre taking is short-sighted, but it must be my religious fait, reverend, cause hope springs eternal
Is this the same religious faith that causes Obama to endorse a woman’s right to have her unborn child sucked from her womb at any time for any reason? The same faith that believes a child, born alive from a botched abortion, should die without treatment?
Satan believes in God too... and he trembles.
Obama’s “religion”, statism, rejects the commandments against stealing and coveting.
Pay their fair share? Cool; he wants a flat tax then, right? That would be fair!
Yes we know Obama:
c) Eradicating the concentration of wealth:
The third object of the distribution of wealth, which Islam considers to be very important, is that wealth, instead of becoming concentrated in a few hands, should be allowed to circulate in the society as widely as possible, so that the distinction between the rich and the poor should be narrowed down as far as is natural and practicable. The attitude of Islam in this respect is that it has not permitted any individual or group to have a monopoly over the primary sources of wealth, but has given every member of the society an equal right to derive benefit from them. Mines, forests, un-owned barren lands, hunting and fishing, wild grass, rivers, seas, spoils of war etc., all these are primary sources of wealth. With respect to them, every individual is entitled to make use of them according to his abilities and his labor without anyone being allowed to have any kind of monopoly over them.
“So that this wealth should not become confined only to the rich amongst you”. (59:7)
Beyond this, wherever human intervention is needed for the production of wealth and a man produces some kind of wealth by deploying his resources and labor, Islam gives due consideration to the resources and labor thus deployed, and recognizes man’s right of property in the wealth produced. Every one shall get his share according to the labor and resources invested by him. Says the Holy Quran:
“We have distributed their livelihood among them in worldly life, and have raised some above others in the matter of social degrees, so that some of them may utilize the services of others in their work”. (43:32)
But, in spite of this difference among social degrees or ranks certain injunctions have been laid down in order to keep this distinction within such limits as are necessary for the establishment of a practicable system of economy, so that wealth should not become concentrated in a few hands.
Of these three objects of the distribution of wealth, the first distinguishes Islamic economy from Socialism, the third from Capitalism, and the second from both at the same time.
Just wait for tomorrow. All you are going to be hearing about is how Rush Limbaugh called The First Lady “Uppity” .The race baiting kicks in high gear tomorrow.
There is NOTHING ‘spiritual’ and ‘Godlike’ about ‘Black Liberation Theology’. Nothing. NOTHING!!!! It’s DEMONIC.
Good stuff. Thanks for that.
“Obama should take this to the people... Run on increasing taxes. The GOP should not make it easy on him.”
Now I know why he didn’t answer any questions at his little presser late this afternoon on the super committee failure - Pat Toomey just talked about what happened today, on Greta earlier - he said the Dems absolutely refused to discuss ANY cuts without...(wait for it)...a $1 TRILLION TAX INCREASE.
The Repubs had BEST start running TV and radio ads telling the public the truth about this crap, to combat BHO’s campaign propaganda about the evil “do nothing” Congress (i.e. Repubs) who prevented him from doing wonderful things for our country.
What a total feckless idiot...maybe his “religion” is the worship of Karl Marx.
It's called the Alternate Minimum Tax.
Hey, media hacks. How about asking these question of Mr. Obama?
1. Mr. President: Why do you think a tax increase won’t hurt the economy now, when only about a year ago you agreed not to push for raising the rate as it would hurt the economy?
2. Mr. Obama, you had a supermajority in the Senate and a heavy majority in House for two years. Why didn’t you terminate the Bush tax cuts or pass new taxes when you had the votes to do so?
3. Mr. President, according the CBO, your proposed tax increase will raise $9 billion annually. Your proposed Jobs Bill will cost $447 billion. Can you please explain how the new revenue will “pay for the Jobs Bill” as you have stated numerous times?
And our faith says they won’t, we pray to a higher power than you do Zero.
The rich will pay. Allah willing.
Thanks Vintage Freeper for posting this:
Al may accidentally be right about this.
Republicans have sin natures just like anyone else. Ulterior motives. Some don’t care they’re screwing the country if they think they’ll stay in office. Some can totally act like the biggest liberals do, easily.
Afraid Al could be right.
Oh that we could tax Obama’s arrogance; he is so rich with it.
” Someones just gonna have to give up their piece of pie so that someone else can have it.”
We’re moving on back from the East side, Obama took our piece of the pie.
That remark alone ought to get Obama certifiable to the nut house.
