raise my rate to 75% and I’ll just hop in the wagon. I might be dumb (working and paying the rate I am) but I am not stupid.

Might as well ride the wagon til it can’t go no more.

I can always sell drugs on the side. Since it’s off the books I can do it while riding the Obama check wagon.

Goodness knows they don’t get it in school. But we keep involved with the school stuff and provide the Conservative viewpoint to things. A few years ago she got an A on her science project poster: “There is no Man-made Global Warming”.

I just printed out an old article from 2004 (note the pre-stimulus packages date) from UCLA on how FDR extended the Depression for 7 years, as some “additional” information on what they are learning in class right now. A pertinent and scary excerpt:

“Why the Great Depression lasted so long has always been a great mystery, and because we never really knew the reason, we have always worried whether we would have another 10- to 15-year economic slump,” said Ohanian, vice chair of UCLA’s Department of Economics. “We found that a relapse isn’t likely unless lawmakers gum up a recovery with ill-conceived stimulus policies.”

Oh - meant to say. What FDR did, and what Obama is doing now is NOT based on stupidity or ill-conceived. It is exactly what they want. Growing government Power and Control is so much easier in bad times. (”Don’t let a crisis go to waste”)

Thanks for the pic...was there a point? Am I to infer you think being friendly to Michelle Obama means that Will Smith has a contemptible heart rather than my contention that he is just clueless about politics and never really took the time to check the veracity of his own assumptions. Look, Hollywood stars live in a bubble of simple minded left wing bigotry with cartoon images of nasty people beyond the dark little shed of their tiny philosophy...unaware of the world around them. Pity them, do not despise them.

Will Smith knows more about space travel than he does about economics. Why do they even bother?

Some European countries don’t allow overtime; originally it was to prevent companies from forcing employees to work overtime, and it morphed into a means to (unsuccessfully) address their chronic unemployment.

He understands French yet cannot speak French.

He must have been missing a few discs in his Rosetta Stone set.

There is no redeeming musical quality from the so called genre known as (c)rap. Anything spoutted from (c)rappers is not worth the room the bilge takes up.

I'd bet on him having an English translation on a monitor invisible to the camera.

Turns out nobody likes to feel clueless or eat crow...especially those who are clueless and most desperately need to eat crow...so conversion of the most pig headed is a difficult goal. I suppose there are both times where patience and gentle persuasion is called for, and times when just making the idiot feel like an idiot is called for. In my time I have helped convert a few...but if each of us does just that much, the collective effect may be powerful.

Hollande is the socialist who promiseed to raise taxes (on the “rich”) as part of his campaign.
I suppose this is why that moron Will Smith was asked about taxes. I sounds like Smith was in full support of the Ubama-like socialist Hollande until he discovered the tax rate was 75%. Ooops.

FRegards,
LH

No, liberals do get it - they only care about creating more takers because those represent votes for them. They consider the givers (us conservatives) evil, so it’s “Shut up, fork it over and be quick about it”.
