There’s this narrative that conservatives and Republicans favor the big rich guy and the corporations and that liberals and Democrats favor the little, poor guy and the workers.
It’s a complete lie and if you believe that crap, you are stupid.
As usual, there are multiple stories to disprove this easily refutable lie.
Allow me to preface story one by pointing out that Warren Buffett is the poster-boy for rampant liberal hypocrisy. The man is a tax-dodging advocate for Obama’s tax and spend policies. He’s a guy who says other people ought to pay high taxes while HE DOESN’T PAY THE TAXES HE OWES, LET ALONG THE HIGHER TAXES HE SAYS HE’S WILLING TO PAY.
And Burger King is a liberal, liberal, liberal corporation:
Burger King Reveals The Gay Pride Whopper
July 2, 2014 | Filed under: Good News,Politics,Top Stories | Posted by: Cheston Catalano
The “Proud Whopper” to celebrate gay pride, will be in a rainbow wrap.
Burger King released a short film Wednesday on YouTube featuring patrons’ reactions when opening the new burger, offered during San Francisco’s Pride Parade Sunday, June 29. The burger appears different on the outside, but soon enough customers realize it’s the same Whopper the fast-food chain has been selling for years. Once unwrapped, the words “We are all the same inside” are revealed on the wrapper.
“I cried in there because I was overwhelmed,” one patron said in the video. “A burger has never made me cry before.”
“Have it your way” has been changed to “Be your way.”
God knows what that “patron” is talking about. That sodomy burger makes Him cry, too.
I have never walked through the doors of a Burger Queen since, for the record. If conservatives started to boycott liberal companies the way liberals target conservative businesses, there would be a truce right quick in the boycott industry. But as it is, liberals are free to target any business they don’t like for doing anything they don’t like that business doing, while conservatives stand on the “principle” of allowing businesses to do what they want. With the result being that our businesses are naked and exposed and quickly fold while the rest of the businesses realize that they had better get in bed with the rabid left because it won’t cost them anything to do so and it will cost them dearly if they don’t.
So here’s überliberal hypocrite Warren Buffett leading überliberal Burger Queen into the very sort of inversion tax dodge that liberals claim they hate:
Burger King and Warren Buffett under fire for Tim Hortons deal
By Jim Puzzanghera, Shan Li contact the reporters
August 26, 2014, 7:35 PM
Burger King’s $11.4-billion deal for Canadian coffee-and-doughnut chain Tim Hortons Inc. — with a new headquarters in Canada — sparked calls for a boycott and criticism of billionaire Warren Buffett, who is helping to finance the merger..
The latest in a series of corporate offshore tax-reducing moves, known as inversions, also puts the Obama administration in a difficult spot as it tries to stem the flow of U.S. companies moving to countries such as Canada with lower tax rates.
“I’ve eaten my last Whopper,” Oscar G. Echeverría of Irvine vowed Tuesday in one of dozens of negative comments about the deal on Burger King’s Facebook page.
Alejandra Aguilar, 35, of East Los Angeles said she planned to stop going to Burger King, where she eats once or twice a month.
“If that goes through, especially if it means the loss of money and jobs in the U.S., I would definitely boycott them,” said Aguilar, who works as a distributor for a beauty company. “I would, even though I love the little burgers.”
Burger King Worldwide Inc. executives said the move to create a corporate holding company in Canada was not a tax dodge. Instead, they said, it was justified because Canada would be the new company’s largest market. They noted that Burger King would remain a stand-alone brand with its headquarters still in Miami.
The outrage over another corporation moving out of the U.S. normally would fuel President Obama’s recent efforts to tighten restrictions on inversions. But the role of Obama ally Buffett, whose firm is investing $3 billion to finance the deal, muddled the message for the administration.
Buffett has been a staunch advocate of companies and citizens paying their fair share of taxes — so much so that the administration’s proposal to force millionaires to pay the same share of their income in taxes as middle-class families is known as the Buffett Rule.
But on Tuesday, Buffett was criticized as a hypocrite even though he echoed Burger King’s comments that the move was not done to avoid paying U.S. taxes.
“It has to be twisting the White House in messaging and political knots,” said Chris Krueger, a Washington policy analyst with Guggenheim Securities.
“How can you hammer a deal for tax policies when the very person your signature tax policy — the Buffett Rule — is named after is involved and argues that [the deal] is not tax-motivated?” Krueger said.
“The White House cannot paint this as a black-and-white issue, and Buffett’s involvement shows that it is more like 50 shades of gray,” he said.
Burger King’s purchase of Tim Hortons, creating the world’s third-largest fast-food company, is one of the highest-profile tax inversions so far.
In such a maneuver, which is legal, a U.S. company buys a foreign competitor in a nation with a lower corporate tax rate and shifts its headquarters to that country. As inversions have gained in popularity in recent years, the Obama administration and some congressional Democrats have been pushing for new restrictions.
[Blah, blah, blah]
Just remember that Warren Buffett is a good shameless hypocrite whore and the Koch brothers are evil and the liberal narrative will remain pristine in unicorn fairy land where every village idiot in the land chants mindless leftist slogans.
The überleftist apologist propaganda mill otherwise known as “the press” is desperately trying to equivocate this story. After all, they tell us, Canada isn’t exactly a tax haven. Well, here’s the thing: the US corporate tax rate is the highest in the damn WORLD. EVERY OTHER PLACE ON EARTH is a damn tax haven compared to Obama’s Socialist States of Amerika.
Okay, next story, same day, same Los Angeles Slimes newspaper, same crony capitalist fascist liberals:
Can Supt. Deasy survive LAUSD’s iPad fiasco?
Los Angeles Times
August 26, 2014, 3:16 PM
So, remember that $1-billion plan to get iPads for each and every Los Angeles Unified student the district has been working on and steadfastly defending for a couple of years now?
Forget about it. The deal is off, creating a new round of L.A. Unified chaos just as another school year begins.
The announcement came just days after the release of emails detailing Supt. John Deasy’s cozy contacts with Apple and curriculum software manufacturer Pearson before they were awarded large contracts.
Deasy, who has denied any improprieties, actually tried to put a positive spin on the long-running fiasco when he announced that the deal with Apple was kaput. The decision, he said in a memo to school board members Monday night, will “enable us to take advantage of an ever-changing marketplace and technology advances.… We will incorporate the lessons learned from the original procurement process….”
You’d think all had gone according to plan, but make no mistake:
Despite the upbeat, moving-on tone of that message, the Deasy pullback is a defining moment in his tenure. It was nothing short of a forced surrender to critics who have argued for months that Deasy charged ahead on the iPad project as if he knew best and everyone else’s job was to get out of the way.
And what did that get us? A commitment to spend tens of millions of dollars on pricey tablets and on software programs that hadn’t even been developed.
And the iPad fiasco is not the only problem bearing down on Deasy.
He’s got a newly radicalized teachers union calling for his scalp in the middle of contract negotiations. The two sides are miles apart on a range of issues, including salaries, teacher evaluations and the ever-rancorous philosophical divide over the corporate and nonprofit influences on public education.
He’s potentially lost his reliable majority on the school board with the election of George McKenna to an open seat.
He’s got the possibility of a new round of investigations into the Apple/Pearson deals by the L.A. Unified inspector general because of the emails.
And the school district, which years ago ditched a disastrous $120-million computerized student tracking system, is now trying to figure out how to fix persistent problems with the new $20-million system that replaced it. Early glitches have sent some parents and teachers into a tizzy over ridiculously large class sizes and misplaced transcripts, among other mishaps, and Jefferson High students staged a sit-in.
But getting back to iPads, Deasy’s white-flag moment follows not only the email release, but also comes in the wake of a damning report on the bidding process by an L.A. Unified technology committee. A draft, obtained last week by my colleague Howard Blume, covered what critics have been telling me and others for more than a year — that the rules of the bidding process appeared to benefit Apple and Pearson, and that there was at least an appearance of a conflict of interest on the district’s part.
And the emails really make you want to hold your nose.
“I believe we would have to make sure that your bid is the lowest one,” now-departed Deasy deputy Jaime Aquino wrote to Pearson in May 2012, two years before the contract was approved.
Aquino, if you have forgotten, had been an executive with a Pearson affiliate prior to heading up Deasy’s tech implementation plan.
Deasy — who graciously appeared in a promotional video for iPads before the contracts were awarded — later jumped in on that same email conversation.
“Understand your points and we need to work together on this quickly,” wrote Deasy, later adding he did not want to lose “an amazing opportunity.”
Deasy maintains that the emails were not about the larger, $1-billion tech plan but about “a pilot program we did at several schools months before we decided to do a large-scale implementation.”
Even if you believe that, along with Deasy’s claim that “nothing was done in any inappropriate way whatsoever,” his contact with Apple and Pearson raises countless questions about whether a legitimate bidding process was ever an objective.
“You should make every bidder think they have a slim chance of getting the job,” said Stuart Magruder, the school bond oversight committee member who briefly lost his post for asking too many questions about all of this. Deasy “didn’t do that. He created an environment where Apple and Pearson probably didn’t have to be as creative as they could have been.”
Or as thrifty. As Magruder noted, the district agreed to a far higher cost per device than what other districts were paying. Magruder also argued that he believes the main objective with digital devices has always been to facilitate more test-taking rather than better teaching and deeper, more meaningful learning experiences for students.
“There are all of these adults fighting among themselves and doing nothing to actually get the kids educated,” Magruder said. “And so many skirmishes between us seem to drive more skirmishes.”
So here we are, back to square one after a couple of wasted years, with Deasy calling for the process to begin all over again. It’s almost as if now he’s in a hurry to make everyone forget the past.
But it remains to be seen whether the superintendent, having lost a great deal of credibility, can survive the political fallout and learn enough from his blunders to lead the way more capably.
“I think that John Deasy lives by the sword and suffers by the sword of urgency,” L.A. Unified board member Steve Zimmer said. “I wouldn’t want him to not be urgent, and not be impatient, but sometimes there’s a cost to that.”
So, yeah. An überleftist crony capitalist fascist liberal school superintendent from one of the most radically liberal cities on EARTH is caught pretty much red-handed committing about every sort of fraud known to man. And he did it with YOUR tax dollars. Because THAT’S what liberalism does.
You need to understand: according to liberalism, it’s evil when a business wants to keep more of its own money rather than pay it out to big government liberals in the form of the highest tax rate on the planet. Well, unless it’s LIBERALS doing it, which they do every damn bit as much as the people the constantly demonize and slander. But it’s perfectly FINE when liberals take that giant stash of money they looted from all the businesses they forced to pay all those taxes and “invest it” – crony capitalist fascist liberal style – on their politically-engineered boondoggle.
Mind you, those paragraphs at the beginning of the above article pretty much represent the entire disgraced presidency of Barack Obama. Let’s just replace the name “Deasy” with the name “Obama” and try it for size:
Obama, who has denied any improprieties, actually tried to put a positive spin on the long-running fiasco when he announced that his cut-and-run from Iraq and then from Libya and then from Syria was kaput. The decision, he said in his 400th damn campaign fundraiser to his rabid ideological communist supporters Monday night, will “enable us to take advantage of an ever-changing “fundamental transformation of the United States of America”.… We will incorporate the lessons learned from the original cut-and-run while we redefine terrorism process….”
You’d think all had gone according to plan, but make no mistake:
Despite the upbeat, moving-on tone of that message, the Obama pullback is a defining moment in his tenure. It was nothing short of a forced surrender to critics who have argued for months that Obama charged ahead on the self-suicidal liberalism project as if he knew best and everyone else’s job was to get out of the way.
And if that disaster computer system doesn’t remind you of the disaster ObamaCare computer system, you are too far beneath the term “idiot” to describe in human terms. You need to be described in single-celled amoeba terms of being capable of anything only when some leftist slogan stimulates you.
If you think I’m being in any way, shape or form unfair to Obama, read this article here that documents the TRUTH about OBAMA’S strategy to completely pull out of Iraq going all the way back to February 2009. The military desperately wanted to remain to prevent the forfeiture of everything they’d fought for. Obama demanded that America cut and run instead. Then read the paragraph that says, “Petraeus was visibly unhappy when he left the Oval Office, according to one of the sources. A White House staffer present at the meeting was quoted by the source as saying, “Petraeus made the mistake of thinking he was still dealing with George Bush instead of with Barack Obama.” Do it Obama’s way until the obvious fiasco happens and then watch him blame everybody else. Obama overrode ALL his generals regarding his now-proven idiotic decision to completely abandon Iraq after all the work America had done to secure the country. Just as Obama would later disregard his ENTIRE national security team when it came to abandoning Syria to terrorists who ultimately exploited Obama’s weak abandonment of Iraq and seized a 36,000 square mile caliphate for themselves.
That’s who liberals are at every turn and in every way. In the spirit of Romans chapter one – which fits liberals to a “T” – they profess themselves to be wise, but in reality they are utter FOOLS.
And If you still think that liberals are one iota more willing to pay income taxes than conservatives, and if you’re NOT a mindless ideologically leftist moron who is as incapable of comprehending basic reality than a cockroach, just do some reading on green energy liberals and Hollywood liberals and liberals in basically every industry under the sun who lavish themselves with tax breaks at every possible turn.
I live in the California desert, and frankly if I had just one damn penny for every phone call I keep receiving from some leftist “green” business trying to capitalize on Obama green energy boondoggles to install subsidized solar energy panels “at no cost to you,” I’d be so filthy rich I’D BE THE ONE BUYING TIM HORTONS instead of Warren Buffett and Burger Queen.
The left has had a strangehold on our education system – both public schools and colleges and universities – for several generations now. And they have made America dumber and dumber and dumber and less and less and less religious. And now its no accident that we’re stupid enough to believe damn well anything.
When the Antichrist comes to take over what liberals started, he’ll have a ready-made population to manipulate with the same sort of lies that liberals have been beaming into the skulls of moral imbeciles since the 1960s.
And one of the core lies is and will continue to remain the lie that liberals only want to help you and conservatives only want to hurt you. When if anything its the other damn way around.
Update, Thursday, August 28, 2014: Yep, just one day after I wrote this, liberal Democrats just forked over $330 million to their fellow Hollywood liberal buddies in the form of “tax credits.”
Or how about this “little guy” that liberal Democrats love to give your money to: big labor unions. The same day and again in the same Los Angeles Times there is an acknowledgement that DEMOCRATS are responsible for stacking the deck against taxpayers and loading up the pension boards with liberal union members who override and outvote the taxpayers again and again and again while cities across the nation go bankrupt. When Gov. Brown tried to enact a “modest pension reform measure,” the union-packed board made it meaningless and “The state’s overwhelmingly Democratic legislature refused” to prevent the outright ROBBERY of the taxpayers.
So when somebody tells you that Democrats care about the little guy, it wouldn’t be the least bit inappropriate of you to just start urinating right in their face.
