Obama said one of those things that Big Brother-style totalitarian demagogues always say in his speech yesterday:
Of course, there will be those who disagree with my approach. Some will argue we shouldn’t even consider raising taxes, even if only on the wealthiest Americans. It’s just an article of faith for them. I say that at a time when the tax burden on the wealthy is at its lowest level in half a century, the most fortunate among us can afford to pay a little more. I don’t need another tax cut. Warren Buffett doesn’t need another tax cut. Not if we have to pay for it by making seniors pay more for Medicare. Or by cutting kids from Head Start. Or by taking away college scholarships that I wouldn’t be here without. That some of you wouldn’t be here without. And I believe that most wealthy Americans would agree with me. They want to give back to the country that’s done so much for them. Washington just hasn’t asked them to.
These fascist rodents are always the same. I think of Joe Biden a few years ago:
“We want to take money and put it back in the pocket of middle-class people,” Biden said in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Noting that wealthier Americans would indeed pay more, Biden said: “It’s time to be patriotic … time to jump in, time to be part of the deal, time to help get America out of the rut.”
It’s the patriotic thing to do to help your Führer make your country an even better Utopia. Of course, you WANT to help your Führer make your country a better Utopia, he tells you.
Just try not doing what the Führer wants and see how long it takes Dear Leader to come after you. The correct answer is “not very.”
It’s your patriotic duty to pay your “fair share” of taxes, all ye rich people.
“Patriotic doodie,” more like.
Allow me to quote from my article yesterday to point out a little itty bitty problem with that colossal load of crap:
We need to balance our insane budget deficit, Democrats say. And it’s time the rich paid their fair share.
All the top 10% of earners paid is 73 percent of the income taxes collected by the federal government. That’s nothing. It’s those poor poor who suffer the most. The bottom 50% have to pay a whole bunch of nothing. It’s just brutal for them every April. They want to write a check to the government, but only the rich get to do stuff like that. And the bottom 40% are so screwed by our federal income tax system that they actually are forced to accept free money in addition to paying a whole bunch of nothing. Unless the Associated Press is lying about it.
The bottom fifty percent aren’t paying any federal income taxes at all. Damn traitors, every single rat bastard one of them, by Joe Biden’s view. And then think of the stinkhole useless treasonous cockroaches who constitute the even more bottom forty percent who not only don’t pay federal income taxes, but actually get money redistributed to them from the taxes of those “patriotic” rich people who are paying their fair share and yours as well.
This wagon train full of fecal matter riding around and around in a dusty circle is like Hitler ranting that every good Nazi had a patriotic duty to go to the Russian front to fight to the death, because no “patriotic” Nazi would ever surrender. Or that Jews really like going to Auschwitz because, after all, it’s a camp, and who doesn’t like going to camp?
You’ve got to be stark raving mad to believe idiocy like this. Or a tyrant bureaucrat from hell, which is the same thing except it pays a lot better and provides much better benefits.
This is just another example of Obama being a cynical, manipulative liar without shame.
But let’s give Obama the benefit of the doubt. Let’s give him a chance to demonstrate that he actually believes his own bullturd statements. All Obama has to do, given that he believes the rich want to pay more in taxes – “want to give back to the country that’s done so much for them” – is to make paying taxes voluntary for them.
You can pay as much as you want to the government for how wonderful they’ve been to you, as a matter of fact. It’s called a “Gift To Reduce Debt Held by the Public.” Liberals can write the government a check for as much as they want on their tax forms. And the fact that they DON’T pay more in taxes when they easily COULD if they really wanted to is the proof in the pudding that liberals are hypocrites. But since Obama truly believes – because he’s not a cynical lying weasel at all – that the rich really, truly want to pay more and more and more in taxes if they’re only asked, let him make taxes voluntary for the rich.
I’m sure Republicans would agree to that.
And think of what a bonanza we’ll get.
Obama’s got poisonous fangs. Don’t believe him when he folds them up and tells you that you really like getting screwed just before he rapes you.
Then there’s another little thing Obama said at least twice in his speech that should set your “fascist alert” antenna twitching:
Worst of all, this is a vision that says even though America can’t afford to invest in education or clean energy; even though we can’t afford to care for seniors and poor children, we can somehow afford more than $1 trillion in new tax breaks for the wealthy. Think about it.
In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans. But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. And I refuse to renew them again.
I am thinking about it, Barry Hussein. And it seems to me as though you are telling me that you think you own all our money, and are just letting us keep as much as you can “afford” to let us keep.
But the very language used in discussing these issues tells you something as well. In Washington, letting people keep more of their own money is considered a cost. As if all the money really belongs to the government in the first place in which what you get to keep is an expenditure.
This sense of the primacy of government is reflected in the high percentage of stimulus funds used to bail out broke localities and protect the jobs of government workers. Democrats are proving once again that they are indeed the party of government.
Understand that when Obama says the kind of crap that he’s saying, it comes from a thoroughly Marxist view that you and everything you produce is in reality government property, and he can simply decide to take it as “the people” need it.
Another way to put this is to simply demand that a liberal show you the part of the Constitution that allows the government to demand that 5 percent of the population be compelled to pay for half of a massive out-of-control federal bureaucracy whether or not they like the party that’s running it or the way it’s being run, while 50 percent of the population (that tends to vote overwhelmingly for the party that is redistributing the wealth) doesn’t have to bear any costs in running that government at all.
And not caring if the rich are forced to pay even more just because you’re not rich has the stink of not caring about what happened to the Jews just because you weren’t a Jew. Which is all the more appropriate to point out given that the Nazis confiscated the Jews’ wealth after demagoguing them, too.
Progressivism is just another dangerous radical “ism,” just like Nazism or facism or Marxism or socialism or communism.
Obama’s central premise in his incredibly demagogic speech was that, for America to be America, we need to make one group of people pay more so that another group of people can keep on avoiding responsibility. That’s a lie.
America doesn’t need more taxes to remain America; it desperately needs less out-of-control federal spending.
The Fiscal Year 2000 federal budget was $1.9 trillion. It was Bill Clinton’s budget. Was America an evil place when Bill Clinton ran it, liberals? So just why is it that Obama needs $3.8 trillion to make America a good place now? How does trillion upon trillion upon trillions of dollars in deficit spending make America a good place? How is it that cursing our children with staggering, back-breaking interest payments on the debt we racked up for them ends up being defined as “caring for our children’s future”?
Do you know that the interest payment alone on our debt is exected to be $800 billion a year by 2020? That’s just over eight years away. As you consider Obama’s speech, ask yourself if that’s showing your kids love. I would argue that it is the most hateful and cynical thing imaginable.
Our founding fathers understood this. That’s why Thomas Jefferson said that, “It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes.” That’s why Benjamin Franklin – who also said “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote” – warned us that “When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”
And, with $3.8 trillion budgets with more than forty cents of every dollar of it adding to our deficit, adding to the $200 trillion in debt that we’ve already accumulated, the end of the republic is very much at hand.
